You can’t change what you face genetically, but you can take control of other factors, scientists say. They cite a few simple steps to extend youthfulness and look better.
First and foremost, you should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. “Long-term sun exposure is the most common external factor affecting skin aging. Loss of collagen is considered a characteristic sign of aging skin – wrinkles and pigment changes are directly related to photoaging,” says Dr. Rashmi Byakodi (Rashmi Byakodi), editor of Best For Nutrition. She recommends using sunscreen to block or reduce your skin’s exposure to UVA and UVB rays.
The next step to maintain youthfulness is to get rid of stress. You also need to get a good night’s sleep, so you need to take care of the quality and schedule of your sleep, and eat right. In addition, doctors advise not to forget about hydration of the skin and the whole body, so you need not only to use special creams, but also drink water.
Finally, you need to give up the main enemies of youth – cigarettes, alcohol and psychoactive substances.
