How shower wash, lotion and proper skin care can help you age gracefully.
No matter what age you actually are, there's no reason your skin can't look years younger. As shower wash and lotion manufacturers, we at Tree Hut believe that as far as skin care is concerned, your skin's "age" has less to do with your literal age than how it has been treated.
Here are 3 Dos and 3 Don'ts to help you influence how your skin ages and leave your skin glowing at any age.
The constant exposure to sun, smoke and stress over your life will make your skin lose collagen, glow and elasticity. Wrinkles will develop, and your skin may look dull and old. It's easier to prevent damage than to repair it, but the good news is you can significantly influence how your skin ages with the right skin care practices.
Moisturizing is one of the single most important skin care practices you can do for your overall appearance.
It prevents cracking, which can open the door to nasty bacteria and blemishes. But basting your body in grease is not the way to go, especially if our skin is already naturally oily. Use a Tree Hut lotion with organic shea butter on joints like the elbows and knees in particular since those are the areas that tend to tighten up most.
Make taking care of your skin a daily ritual.
It's important to cleanse your face every night to wash away all the daily pollution your skin has experienced. As for anti-aging regimens, you only receive the intended benefits if you apply the treatment consistently. To get the full effects of moisturizers, you have to keep at it. Their benefits will not last if you aren't consistent.
Don't forget to use a great shower wash. Many people may be diligent about cleansing their faces, but it's important to apply a well-formulated shower wash to exfoliate and clean your body as well.
Wear sunscreen every day, rain or shine.
Even in winter it can take just 20 minutes of unprotected sun exposure to damage your skin. The popular statistic that you receive 80% of your life's sun damage before the age of 18 is not true. It is very possible to prevent most of your sun-induced aging by wearing sunscreen.
Put simply, tanning is extremely unhealthy for your skin.
Even if your wrinkles haven't shown up yet, tanning will expedite the aging process. So if you do have sun damage? It's possible to reverse most of the damage with skin care regimens like pulsed light treatments, but these are very pricey. Wearing sunscreen and not tanning is a much less expensive option, both for your wallet and your skin.
Do not smoke.
The skin of a lifelong smoker appears as wrinkly as a squashed paper bag. Smoking is one of the biggest causes of skin damage after sun exposure. Why? Nicotine constricts blood vessels and decreases the flow of oxygen to the skin. This damage is mostly unrepairable, so it's best to either never smoke or quick as quickly as possible.
Either stop drinking caffeine or drink less of it.
Understandably, there are plenty of people who need coffee to get through their day, and suddenly quitting the habit is out of the question. If you absolutely must have caffeine to get going in the morning going, be sure keep hydrated by drinking more water or decaf. Caffeinated drinks pull moisture from you body, which means dull looking skin and more wrinkles.
