Smoking makes you look older

Smoking makes you look older

Even if you look younger than you are, you shouldn’t forget regular care for your body. Here are the simplest tips you are to follow to maintain youthful look for ages.

Drink more water

This is a vexed question if it’s really necessary to drink eight glasses water a day. But the fact is obvious – our skin consists of water by 90 percent. If your organism is short of water, your skin can become dry and sensitive. Water also removes toxins from the organism. Otherwise they come out through our pores, forming pimples and spots. Water humidifies, vivifies, cleans and oxidizes skin. It also reduces pigment spots and makes wide pores smaller.

Choose proper food

There are no special products or drinks promising an eternal youth, but antioxidants help us to restore skin and to struggle against free radicals. Antioxidants protect us from the signs of aging, which are by-products of pollution, smoke and UV-rays. Fruits and vegetables with a bright colour and green tea are great sources of antioxidants. Pay attention to vitamin C as well – it’s necessary for collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein making skin smooth and elastic.

Quit smoking

It’s incontestable that smoking makes your face age faster. So if you want to look younger and fresher you should immediately stop smoking. Cigarette smoke contains more than 4000 toxins and many of them get directly into your blood flow and are transported by blood right to your skin. Besides when you inhale smoke, your lungs produce more than a billion of free radicals that do harm to the whole organism. Smoking influences blood vessels in the upper layers of the skin, what makes your blood produce less oxygen and collagen. At last, slow circulation of the blood is the reason of a thin skin of the smoker and early signs of aging.

Avoid stress

Long stress has always an effect to your face, causing tension, lines and wrinkles that can hide your true age. Maybe it sounds like a cliché but if you feel good you look good. It’s very important to find a time for relaxation. Give a treat to yourself with bubble baths, face masks and spa-procedures. All this gives a powerful psychological support and inspires you with conciliation and harmony.
