Nowadays, people are concerned with aging more than ever. We all want to live long, happy and healthy lives while trying to slow down the aging process as much as we can. It’s no wonder that the anti-aging market is a multi-billion dollar business. We are all searching for the best products that help correct our skin. While genetics do play a role on how we will age, daily habits and our lifestyle is more telling than how our parents aged over the years.
Just like our family medical history, the same will definitely go for our skin, but you also have a say in your lifestyle choices. Smoking, sun exposure, eating habits and overall health has a lot to do with how our skin ages. Another factor that can cause aging is stress. It will break down the skin on a cellular level, speeding up the aging process and leaving us to look much older than we truly are. Stress can also cause your skin to breakout, encourage hair loss, and breakdown collagen within the skin, ultimately causing more wrinkles.
If you choose to smoke, receive unprotected sun exposure, and do not choose a healthy diet, eventually it will catch up to you despite you having “good genes”.
The great news is that if you weren’t born into “great genes,” it’s never too late to start doing something about it. You can start eating healthy, getting enough sleep, using a proper skincare regimen suited for your skin type, wear sunscreen everyday, work out, and practice stress relieving exercises.
As time goes on you will notice the difference, and will know who actually takes great care of their skin and who doesn’t.
