With age, the skin produces less and less collagen and elastin, and thus becomes less firm. However, we usually fight the aging of facial skin, and this process also applies to body skin. How to make her look young as long as possible?
Moisturize and grease the skin of the body
Buy a good body lotion - it should contain vitamin E, folic acid, shea butter, glycerin, urea, ceramides, panthenol and linolenic acid. It's about moisturizing and soothing irritations. When applying the cosmetic, massage the body from the bottom up - it stimulates blood and lymph circulation, prevents swelling and makes cosmetics absorb better. When spreading, do not skip the neckline and breast - here the skin is particularly susceptible to sagging and wrinkles.
Do body scrub regularly
It is best to perform the procedure once a week. Peeling stimulates the skin to produce new cells, and this accelerates regeneration. In addition, after removing the layer of dead cells, the body has a nicer color, and cosmetics are absorbed much better.
Arrange bike rides, go to the swimming pool, run, sign up for aerobics. Gymnastics stimulates blood and lymph circulation, which is why it prevents cellulite and helps fight it.
Visit the city spa
The beautician will offer you exfoliating, firming, nourishing or lightening discoloration treatments - it all depends on the condition of your skin. If you are already 50 years old, use the advice of a dermatologist - he will show you the right cosmetics for use at home, and if necessary recommend specialized treatments.
Eat healthy food
Keep your diet rich in antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids. Thanks to them, the skin better defends itself against adverse environmental factors and maintains its firmness. So limit the consumption of fatty pork, sweets and chips in favor of vegetables, fruit and fish. Let seeds, cereal grains and vegetable fats become important elements on your menu. You also need to moisturize the skin from the inside, so drink at least 2 liters of water a day.
Protect the skin against UV rays
Under the influence of UV rays, free radicals are formed, which damage the collagen and elastin fibers responsible for firmness. The sun is also the main cause of discoloration, and it is known that skin covered with dark spots adds years. Therefore, use creams with UV filters every day. Apply them to all exposed parts of the body, especially the hands.
