How Your Skin Benefits from a Preventative Approach

By October 23, 2018Skin Care Tips

If there’s one thing you need do to keep your skin looking young, it’s this.

How do you look after your body? Proactively, through a healthy diet and exercise regime, right? Well, the same thing goes for your skin. And one of the best ways to look after it is with an anti-ageing cream.

Given that your skin is the largest organ in the body, your lifestyle and habits have a huge effect on it. That old saying, ‘you are what you eat’ explains this well. Your skin and hair are strong indications of how healthy you are.

By taking a preventative approach to your skin’s health (and using an anti-ageing cream), you’ll thank yourself later. As you age, your skin changes and it’s important to give it the special care it needs. Let’s go through a few of the things that help keep your skin (and body) looking great.

And, you guessed it, we’re talking about an anti-ageing cream.

Perfect your daily skincare regime with a good anti-ageing cream.

Introducing an anti-ageing cream might be the only big change you need to make to your lifestyle, if you’re already eating well and exercising often. Always prepare your skin for the anti-ageing cream by starting with a cleanser. This is an extremely important step to ensuring your skin reaps the benefits of the anti-ageing cream.

While you should be doing this morning and night (before your anti-ageing cream), take a little extra time to do this before bed. You’ve had a whole day of oil, dirt, sunscreen and oil build up on your skin. Remove the debris from the day’s activities before applying your anti-ageing cream.

Once a week (or whenever you feel like you need it), exfoliate, to promote cell turnover and increase circulation. This is one of those actions you can do on self-care Sunday. You’re going to love the radiant glow it leaves on your skin.

Remember, don’t just use any moisturiser. You’re taking a proactive approach with an anti-ageing cream, which means you’re treating your skin for wrinkles, even before you have them.

Watch your diet.  

While a good anti-ageing cream (like Nerium’s Age IQ set) will take care of your face, you can do the same from the inside (with what you eat). As you know, there’s great power in food for our overall health.

Phytonutrients are plant compounds that keep your body (and skin) strong. Make sure you’re eating fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts and teas. Dark vegetables like kale, spinach, broccoli and Brussel sprouts are rich in antioxidants (like our anti-ageing cream). And, always go for organic, locally grown produce.

Exercise & rest.  

Both movement and rest are equally important when it comes to your skin health. Make sure you’re getting plenty of sleep (and using an anti-ageing cream for the night) because if you’re not, it’ll show up on your skin. Those sweat sessions are needed so your skin can release yucky, wrinkle-causing toxins. Move every day, whether it’s strength training for toning the muscles or aerobics for protecting the heart and promoting circulation.

While we can’t help you with the diet, exercise and sleeping, we’ve got the anti-ageing cream part covered.
