Skin Care Protection

How do you take care of your skin from the heat of the sun? Do you have any protection for your skin when you go out and expose yourself to the sun’s harmful rays? If you do care for your skin, I think you need to know the basic needs on how to protect yourself from the damaging effects of the sun.
These are a few of the simplest ways on how to slow down the signs of aging skin.

1. Use high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) sunscreen lotion, preferably with zinc oxide or titanium oxide to protect you from the harmful rays of the sun. This sunscreen lotion is not just for summer days or to protect you at the beach. You can use it anytime if the sun is so hot.

2. Eat a proper Anti-Aging Diet like vegetables and fruits daily and fish high in omega-3s three times a week to help your skin keep from aging from the inside out. Drink plenty of water too and eat a fiber-rich diet to reap the most benefits for your skin.

3. Anti-Aging cream and moisturizer; this is an important part of an overall, anti-aging skin care program. The cream must have one of two key ingredients, Matrixyl or Argireline.

4. If skin especially on the face is totally damaged now and has lots of wrinkles, talk to a dermatologist.

Steps 1, 2, and 3 are just so simple, right? My friends asked me why I still have good skin even if I am in my early 40’s. Well, steps 1, 2, and 3 are my secrets.

It’s never too early to start an anti-aging, anti-wrinkle skin care plan. And it is also never too late to slow down the signs of aging skin — and even take steps to reverse them.
