Life tends to show itself on our faces, usually in the form of laugh lines and crow’s feet. While no one has found the fountain of youth to prevent aging, we can hold back the clock a little bit and age with grace and beauty. Here are a few ways you can age gracefully.

Prevention

Throughout our lives different forces work on our skin and can cause the aging process to progress quickly. UV rays from the sun are a powerful force that wreaks havoc on our skin. Being repeatedly sunburnt or even just mild exposure to sun over time damages our skin. It can result in discoloration (sun spots), wrinkles, and even cancer as we age. To avoid this damage wear an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen daily. Always wear a hat outdoors, and use sunglasses to protect the sensitive areas around your eyes. The more you protect yourself from the sun now, the fewer visible effects you will see on your skin as you age.

Lack of moisture stresses the skin. These stresses become more visible as we age. At altitudes over 9,000 feet, which we experience in Breckenridge, the air around us is incredibly dry. It is so important to drink plenty of water to keep your skin full and supple. In addition, use moisturizers daily to prevent further loss of moisture through the skin. Giving your skin this extra attention can hold the visible signs of aging at bay.

Exercise

The benefits of regular exercise are endless. It can improve mood, relieve stress, stave off long term health problems, and according to The American Academy of Dermatology can help your skin look more youthful. Improved circulation throughout the body due to exercise keeps skin looking young and healthy, with a bright luster. In addition to great looking skin, exercise will give you the dexterity and muscle strength you need to grow old gracefully.

Healthy, Well Balanced Diet

WebMD points out that the food we eat also impacts our skin. The article suggests eating foods that are high in nutrients, such as Vitamin C and Vitamin A, to care for your skin. Incorporate citrus fruits and green leafy vegetables in your daily diet. Not only will these fruits and veggies help you look well, they will help you feel well also.

There are is no magic potion to prevent aging, but if you take care of your body and your skin, you can feel and look great as you age.
