3 Important Habits for Youthful Aging
Whether it be from busy lifestyles or sociality distractions, many believe, “we have nothing to worry about now, it’s only when we get older that we will need to start worrying about wrinkles and aging skin”. Cosmetic aesthetics has advanced at an impressive speed that has increased our global community knowledge on our options for reversing or correcting poor skin health. Although the technology is there to aid us when the time comes, the more we do now to prevent skin damage, the better we will look and feel in the future.
From all corners of the world, we hear of ancient skincare tips spoken by generations past. It is essential to incorporate healthy skincare tips as early as we can to combat the harsh environments we live with today such as air pollution, the diets we keep and the lifestyles we choose. Follow these important tips to care for your skin and slow down aging in its tracks.
1. Hydrate Inside & Out
Sufficient hydration keeps skin healthy and youthful. In order to maintain glowing skin that lasts, it is crucial to hydrate inside the body by drinking water, as well as moisturize the skin to protect from environmental factors.
Everyone knows the importance of drinking water for overall health and well-being, but it is also important for healthy, vibrant, and glowing skin. Water flushes toxins in the body and promotes circulation, delivering key nutrients to skin cells.
According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, our skin is made up of about 64% water. This being said, to have healthy skin it is extremely important to intake sufficient amounts of water for your body type and environment. “Generally, an adult male needs about 3 liters (3.2 quarts) per day while an adult female needs about 2.2 liters (2.3 quarts) per day.”  The food we eat adds to the water content we ingest each day. As a rule of thumb, it is recommended to drink 8 glasses a day at least.
Snazz up your drinking water with some cucumber and mint or put it in a cute water bottle you love. Whatever way you choose, make drinking water each day enjoyable for a healthy habit that will dramatically improve the way you look and feel.
Drinking water does wonders for the skin but without utilizing protective mositurizers environmental factors can reverse the benefits. Situations like dry weather, indoor heating, and sun damage dry out the skin’s outer layers. We recommend using Oxygenetix Hydro Matrix on your face daily to shield from damaging environments and lock in moisture. With water-loving ingredients like PCA and Hyaluronic Acid, Hydro Matrix attracts hydration and maintains moisture levels with a super binding gel matrix.
2. Protect Your Skin from the Sun
Sun rays are extremely harmful to the skin and sun damage is one of the things that can make you look older the quickest. Signs of sun damage can be more apparent in lighter skin shades, but dangerous for all skin types.
UVA and UVB rays from the sun penetrate the epidermis causing damage to skin cells. Over time, repeated sun exposure without protection can cause premature aging, wrinkles, dry skin, discoloration, and an increased risk of skin cancer.
Wearing sunscreen every day is an important part of a skincare routine. For your face, wear noncomedogenic mineral sunscreen that won’t clog your pores or cause skin irritations. Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation heals and conceals skin with an SPF 30 for protection all day. Look flawless while caring for the future of your skin.
3. Invest in Quality Skincare Products
Our skin absorbs what we put on it, so every skincare product we use has the potential to change the way our skin looks and feels. Unfortunately, the current regulations on cosmetics fail to protect us from toxic ingredients.
Become informed of the ingredients contained in the products you use on your skin. Look for words like noncomedogenic (so your pores aren’t clogged) and hypoallergenic (meaning it has been tested relatively unlikely to cause an allergic reaction).
Oxygenetix breathable and pro-healing topicals have been rigorously tested to be safe for even the most sensitive skin. Oxygenetix is recommended by top dermatologists and medical professionals around the globe to use post-procedure to heal and conceal signs of treatment. Oxygenetix has also taken Hollywood by storm, just recently winning Brand of the Year by the Daytime Beauty Awards 2019.
So, what are you waiting for? Start taking care of yourself now and your skin will thank you for years to come. Shine on you beautiful human you!
