7 Natural Ways to Prevent Aging Skin





1) Lower your stress levels.

Study shows that stress weakens the integrity of your skin’s collagen, making it saggy and wrinkly. To help reduce your stress, do yoga and meditation regularly.

2) Reduce salt from your diet.
Sodium Chloride draws water out of your cells, making them flabby and promoting wrinkles.

3) Get a little sunshine.
Giving your skin a little dose of the sun’s rays each day can actually keep it younger. That’s because you’ll soak up some vitamin D, and this vitamin helps keep your skin healthy.

4) Stand on your head.
If you stand on your head for a few minutes every day, you’ll dramatically increase the circulation to your face, bathing your skin in nutrients and getting rid of toxins that can make you wrinkly. If standing on your head is too hard, here’s an alternative: Just lie on your bed with your head hanging over the edge.

5) Reduce fried foods from diet.
We have all heard the warnings that fried foods cause heart disease, high cholesterol, and obesity, but what about its effect on our skin? Fried food are fully oxidized and saturated fat, which is the worst kind of thing you can take into your body. It could impede the ideal structure of the skin. Research shows that consistent consumption of fried foods causes damage to the cellular structure of the dermis and epidermis, and this leads to sallow, aged skin and more cystic acne.

6) Cut sugar and processed food from diet
The foods we eat can have a major impact on how we look. Highly processed junk foods made with additives and preservatives such as white bread, biscuits, chips, french fries, drinks, and candies spike your blood sugar levels. This causes your hormones to stimulate excessive oil production, thus clogging pores and aging the skin

7) Reduce coffee and black tea.
Not only does caffeine dry out your skin, but caffeine increases your production of cortisol (stress hormone) . More cortisol accelerates the aging process, thus thinning your skin. However, some caffeine-laden drinks, like coffee and black tea are loaded with antioxidants that can help defend skin from damage, particularly from the sun. But one should drink caffeine in moderation to avoid its harmful effects on our skin, brain and overall health. Make sure to drink plenty of water to counteract the dehydrating effects of caffeinated drinks.
