8 Beauty Tips to Enhance Your Skin Naturally

Presented here are some simple tips that you can use effectively to make your skin look soft and healthy.

* Scientists have established a direct link between premature aging of your skin and smoking. So if you are into smoking, get rid of it.

* Stay away from sunbathing and tanning salons. Avoid the hot midday sun, preferably from 10 am to 4 pm, as the sun’s rays are strongest during this time, if you do not wish to end up with freckles, age spots or blotchy complexion on your skin. And if you still have to be outside during this time, ensure you have enough protective measure taken, like a protective hat, log sleeved shirt or sunglasses.

* Use sunscreen regularly, especially those which provide both UVB and UVA protection and with SPF that is higher than 15. Too much of unprotected exposure to the sun results in the formation of fine wrinkles and uneven skin tone, a phenomenon termed as ‘photoaging.’

* Be aware of skin cancer, and if you notice anything unusual about your skin, seek medical advice immediately. This applies more for older and fair skinned people who are at a greater risk than anybody else.

* Use a humidifier like moisturizing soaps or lotions to keep your skin soft and smooth and see your doctor if its otherwise.

* Maintain a healthy food habit and see to it that you drink lots of water. This will ensure your skin is hydrated from inside out.

* There are several anti aging products in the form of lotions and creams available off the shelf which, women above 50 can make the best use of for revitalizing their skin. Among these, products laced with pentapeptides that promote the development of collagen, the support structure that is responsible for giving a firm look to the skin, can be used for best results. There’s also the option of prescription treatments and retinoid creams that you can make the best use of.

* There is a range of skin treatments available that can impart a youthful look to the skin. This includes botox injections to get rid of wrinkles from the upper third of the face, chemical peeling methods for erasing fine lines especially around the eyes and mouth or wrinkle fillers to plump up the skin. Another method to remove ultra fine lines, rejuvenate skin complexion and improve skin color and tone is microdermabrasion. Intense Pulse Light is still another method that allows doctors to take care of skin that may have been damaged by the sun, scars and other facial problems.
