Is It Possible To Slow Down The Aging Process?
The 20s and 30s are the time when you begin to age, and the process of aging affects everyone. The process cannot be stopped, but it can definitely bee slowed down. What you do for and with your skin will have certain ramifications as you continue to age.
Two things you should never do if you want to slow down the process of aging are smoking and tanning. After the sun, tobacco is the second most harmful substance. You should also avoid tanning because it is harmful to the skin. The signs of aging will be subtle during your 30s, but it is the perfect opportunity to address the needs of your skin if you want to slow down the process of aging. Given below are some tips that can assist you in your endeavor.

Put on Some Sunscreen
You should make the use of a sunscreen a regular habit regardless of the type of weather you are living in. Make it a daily routine just like brushing your teeth or taking a shower. Choose a sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30 and one that is labeled as broad-spectrum. This label indicates that the sunscreen can protect against the UVA and the UVB rays of the sun. Also, remember to use the sunscreen according to the instructions on the label.
Tanning (Indoors or Outdoors) Will Not Slow The Process of Aging
Women make one of the biggest mistakes, particularly when they are young by frequently trying to get a tan. They do not understand that by so doing, they are damaging their skin by exposing it to as ultraviolet radiation, which can make the skin look worse. Standing outside in the sun also has the potential to discolor the skin and cause damage to collagen and elastin. Tanning speeds up the process of aging. Instead, they should use sunless tanners that come in the form of sprays, gels, creams, and lotions. Nonetheless, these tanning options are not effective in protecting the skin against sunburn. Therefore, one still needs to continue using sunscreen throughout the year.
Sunglasses protect your eyes and the delicate skin around them from the sun. If you use sunglasses, you don’t have to worry about the wrinkles that are caused by squinting in the harsh sun.
Smoking is bad news for every part of your body. Apart from causing various health problems, it also speeds up the breakdown of collagen in the skin. Furthermore, smoking constricts the blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients into the skin. If you are using tobacco, you should quit smoking immediately or be ready to deal with the process of aging prematurely.
Avoid Excessive Alcohol
Having a drink occasionally or a glass of wine with your dinner is fine. However, having too much alcohol dehydrates the skin and dilates the blood vessels. If you have the habit of having alcohol regularly, you could develop broken blood vessels and a skin disorder, marked by tiny pimples and redness.
Watch Your Diet
Many people go on and off a diet without a need. They repeatedly try to lose or gain weight, perhaps without realizing they are causing their skin to sag and stretch. Things would be better if women made an attempt to work on reaching and maintaining a healthy weight because the skin will not return to its original condition after a certain stage.
It is important to use retinoids or retinol and obtain advice from a doctor about how best you can slow down the aging process. This requires just a small effort on your part.
