All of us dream of flawless, glowing skin, but with new products constantly hitting our skincare shelf and seemingly endless skincare tips from beauty gurus, It's not relatively easy for us to figure out the best and suitable skincare routine that can prove wonders. Running towards anti-ageing methods is a common approach nowadays. You might have started swapping your smoking habit for a sunscreen application, started drinking 2 litres of water a day, or maybe started following a good day and night skincare routines, but have you ever thought of trying other ways to curb the issue of premature ageing which might help you?
As you get older, your body's internal processes slow down and take longer to complete or recharge. Our skin cell turnover to workout recovery, everything starts delaying and leaves room for signs of ageing, such as wrinkles, fine lines, crow's feet, etc. to occur.
Smoking, sun exposure, lack of sleep, genes, diet, environment and stress are a few reasons behind ageing. Although It is impossible to avoid ageing, there are ways to reduce the signs of ageing in your body and delay the process for better. You should incorporate below listed simple tips into your life and challenge the clock.
1.Avoid repetitive facial expressions.
Facial movements and expressions, such as frowning, continuous smiling or sad face, lead to muscle fluctuation and can result in fine lines and wrinkles. As the skin ages, it loses it's collagen content and flexibility as well. It is always recommended to do a facial massage twice in a day to relax your face muscles. Proper massage may help in tightening your skin and can work as an anti-ageing tactic.2. Eat your SPF
We know that you always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen before stepping out under the sun. Using a good quality, SPF protects your skin against UVA and UVB rays and delay the ageing process. But it is not always possible to wear SPF, even when you are at home. So rather than wearing it all day long, why don't you eat it?
Certain foods are known to increase lycopene production, the skin's own SPF. An antioxidant found in tomatoes, and other red and orange fruit and veg can boost your sun protection by a whopping 33%. You can eat lemon, dark chocolate, and other Vitamin C rich food as well to promote anti-ageing.
3. Exercise Well
We cannot stress enough about moving your body. The more you work out, the more our body tightens and promote anti-ageing. Working out daily or on an interval basis is excellent for your skin as moderate exercise can improve circulation and boost the immune system that may give the skin a more youthful appearance.
5. Exfoliate twice weekly
4. Eat your Greens
Though green vegetables are not so tempting, what else we can do to survive in this race of healthy, youthful and glowing skin?
Yes, we know that you want to swap that green smoothie with multiple coffee shots in the morning, but trust me, you shouldn't. For the sake of your skin, please stop consuming coffee and start drinking a healthy green smoothie in the morning. Drinking a shot of chlorophyll every morning can brighten, oxygenate, and hydrate your skin and also help in draining puffiness by stimulating the lymphatic system, so it's also useful for cellulite. We hope you will follow this :)
The building of dead skin cells is ubiquitous and not exfoliating twice a week is also very common. Routine exfoliation speeds up the growth of new skin cells. The dead one sheds away, and new regenerates with a younger and fresher look. So regular exfoliation will help you maintain your radiance and a bright, youthful glow.

We know that ageing skin is distressing, that is why we highly recommend you to start the anti-ageing skincare process as soon as possible. It's never too late or too early to start taking care of your skin. Make some changes in your lifestyle and promote healthy living.
