Speaking of the sun, it's one
of the main causes of premature aging. Everyone seems to want
that great golden tan, but later in life they are paying for
it. The sun can cause your skin to have a leathery, rough texture,
and it can also cause wrinkles and lines, and of course skin
cancer. Protecting your skin from the sun is an absolute necessity.
Along with smoothing on Shea Butter for protection, some things
you can do to protect your skin from the sun are:
Wear a sunscreen with
a 30 SPF or higher.
Don't stay in the sun
for extended periods of time.
Make sure you smooth
on a great moisturizer before and after being exposed
to the sun.
Wear a sun hat or umbrella.
You can also fight the signs
of aging by quitting smoking. Smoking reduces the blood circulation
to the skin and starves it of blood and oxygen. This can have
several effects including deep lines and wrinkles, wrinkles around
the lips and mouth, a yellowish or gray and unhealthy skin complexion,
and a leathery appearance of the skin. In fact, it's fairly easy
to tell if someone is a smoker just by looking at their face
and their skin. Quitting smoking, or staying away from second
hand smoke will most definitely benefit your skin.
Eating the proper amount of
fruits and vegetables each day will help your skin stay healthy
and young looking. There are essential vitamins and nutrients
which your skin needs to maintain it's healthy look, and many
of these come from fruits and veggies. Experts recommend 4 servings
of fruit and an unlimited serving of vegetables per day. Eating
right will help stop extrinsic aging. Make sure to drink plenty
of water as well. Shea Butter, the right diet and nutrition and
keeping the sun off of your skin will all help you fight the
signs of aging.
