Natural Anti-Aging Skin Care

Natural Anti-Aging Skin Care

People are increasingly recognising the benefits of using natural anti-aging skin care methods in order to promote healthy, vibrant and youthful looking skin. These methods which all contribute to reducing signs of ageing include a combination of natural skincare products, facial exercises, achieving proper hydration and a diet rich in vitamin D.

Natural skin products are far more beneficial to the skin than those containing artificial or synthetic chemicals. Added chemicals found in some conventional skincare products such as emulsifiers, preservatives, thickeners, and fragrances, can be potentially harmful and result in negative side effects such as skin damage or irritation. They can also dry out the skin and adjust the natural pH levels of a once natural ingredient. The skin is the largest organ of the body and is extremely delicate - it is the first line of defence against sun, pollution, wind and germs. It has multiple functions and requires proper nutrition and care to maintain its peak condition. Natural skincare including natural soaps and natural body lotions are not only better for the environment, your skin and body but also meet high standards for performance. Natural cosmetics often perform equally as effectively as synthetic skincare products and are far less likely to irritate skin. They also come without harmful side effects.

Facial exercises are a fantastic way of preventing wrinkles and help to improve existing ones. These exercises work in exactly the same way as when we exercise the body; the muscles tone and relax and the blood circulation is increased. If carried out for just ten minutes a day, facial exercises help to reduce lines around the forehead, lips and ‘crowfeet’ around eyes. They also help your lips become thick and fuller and improve the elasticity of the skin. Regular facial exercise can actually have greater effect on the skin than expensive cosmetic skincare and you will quickly notice a healthier, youthful glow to your face. There are a range of very simple exercises which individually work the forehead muscles, chin muscles, and the muscles around the lips, eyes and neck.

Vitamin D is an essential vitamin for optimising skin health. Vitamin D contributes to increasing skin cell metabolism and growth and is great in treating dry and flaky skin. It also contains powerful antioxidants so is vital for preventing premature aging of skin and helping to repair existing skin damage. Vitamin D can be found in many fish based foods such as salmon and mackerel, cod liver oil and tuna. It is also found in milk, egg yolks and fortified cereals. Incorporating these foods into your diet can have a significantly positive effect on your skin. You can also take vitamin D natural supplements to ensure your intake is sufficient.

In addition to a healthy balanced diet rich in vitamin D, hydration is extremely important in achieving good skin health and is one of the easiest and convenient ways to prevent premature ageing. By drinking at least 2 litres of water per day, your body will be able to provide your skin with hydration and important nutrients. Soon after drinking adequate amounts of water, you will notice a natural shine and elasticity to your skin. It also significantly improves dry skin. Another benefit of water consumption is the reduction of acne as water can help repair breakouts. Water is essential to removing toxins out of your body. It is an amazing substance that is essential for healthy skin.

Opting for natural anti-aging skin care and understanding how your diet and drinking enough water contributes to healthy, vibrant looking skin is the key to optimising your skin health and ultimately reducing wrinkles. All the factors mentioned in this article are simple lifestyle changes and come at a minimum expense. Here at Megavista, we focus on the positive, holistic approach to skincare which can provide outstanding anti-ageing effects and prevent the need to spend large sums of money on conventional cosmetic products.
