Youthful And Vibrant Skin
by Daniellle Sims
Billions are spent each year on cosmetic products that promise
to delete wrinkles, lighten age spots, and eliminate itching,
flaking, or redness. But the simplest and cheapest way to keep
your skin healthy and youthful looking is to stay out of the
Sunlight is a major cause of wrinkles, dryness, and age spots.
Your skin does change with age. For instance, you sweat less
which leads to increased dryness. Aging skin becomes thinner
and loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth. Underlying
structures, veins and bones in particular, become more
prominent. Your skin can also take longer to recover when
These changes can be drastically delayed by staying out of the
sun. Although nothing can totally undo sun damage, the skin
sometimes can restore itself. So, it's never too late to
protect yourself from the harmful results of the sun.
5 Ways to Slow the Aging Process:
1. Wear protective clothing. A hat with a wide brim shades your
neck, ears, eyes, and head. Look for sunglasses with a label
saying the glasses block 99 to 100 percent of the sun's rays.
Wear loose, lightweight, long-sleeved shirts and long pants or
long skirts when in the sun.
2. Check your skin often. Look for changes in the size, shape,
color, or feel of birthmarks, moles, and spots. If you find any
changes that worry you, see a doctor. The American Academy of
Dermatology suggests that older, fair-skinned people have a
yearly skin check by a doctor as part of a regular physical
3. Avoid artificial tanning. Don't use sunlamps and tanning
beds, as well as tanning pills and tanning makeup. Tanning
pills have a color additive that turns your skin orange after
you take them. The FDA has approved this color additive for
coloring foods but not for tanning the skin. The large amount
of color additive in tanning pills may be harmful. Tanning
make-up products are not suntan lotions and will not protect
your skin from the sun.
4. Use sunscreen. Sunscreens are rated in strength according to
a sun protection factor (SPF), which ranges from 2 to 30 or
higher. A higher number means longer protection. Buy products
with an SPF number of 15 or higher. Also look for products
whose label says: broad spectrum (meaning they protect against
both types of harmful sun rays(UVA and UVB) and water resistant
(meaning they stay on your skin longer, even if you get wet or
sweat a lot). Remember to reapply the lotion as needed.
5. Stay out of the sun. Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 3
p.m. This is when the sun?s UV rays are strongest. Don?t be
fooled by cloudy skies. Harmful rays pass through clouds. UV
radiation also can pass through water, so don't assume you?re
safe if you?re in the water and feeling cool.
