Tips for Proactive Anti-Aging Skin Care

1. Exfoliate. The 30s is the decade when cell turnover begins to slow down, leading to dull, uneven skin tone. Counter this with regular exfoliation and moisturizing treatments that contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs)

2. See spot treatments. Pregnancy may cause hormonal upheavals that can result in melasma, also called “mask of pregnancy” ( dark patches on the skin). Use gentle skin- lightening products that can contain vitamin C and licorice extract.

3. Take your vitamins. A single multivitamin provides you most of the vitamins and minerals you need. Doctors may also recommend calcium supplements.

4. Get moving. Strengthen your bones and muscles with weight training.

5. Drink a lot of water: Skin care can’t be any simpler than this. Water helps in flushing out the toxins from the body, hence keeping it clean and making it less prone to disease. Around 8 glasses of water (per day) is recommended by all doctors.

6. Avoid the use of strong, chemical based products on your skin. Natural skin care products are a good option. Use of organic skin care products (home made or commercial) can be a very effective anti-aging skin care measure.

7. Keep your makeup clean. Replace the sponges in your compact on a regular basis. Now and then, toss the whole works and start fresh — the average shelf life for cosmetics is 6 to 12 months. Don’t buy products so expensive that you’ll be heartbroken if you have to throw them away.

8. Do not overuse skin care products. Excessive and harsh application, both are harmful.

9. Protect yourself from the sun — use sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight between the hours of 10 and 2.

10. Don’t – I repeat – don’t smoke. Your skin is a large organ and it needs a lot of circulation. Smoking impairs that dramatically. That’s why smokers’ skin looks dull and gray. Instead of having oxy-generated blood delivered to the surface of the skin, they’re getting poisons and oxidants.

11. Many studies have been done over the years demonstrating the healing and physiological properties of bovine colostrum. Colostrum helps the immune system to function more efficiently, maintain peak performance and fight acne causing bacteria.
