Your Guide to Anti Aging Skincare

Why bother?The reason that you should put an anti aging skincare routine in place as soon as you can is because you really cannot prevent the process of aging or the signs it leaves on your skin but you can lessen the effects of age much easier than you can reverse them.What causes aging?There are two processes that age you. There’s ‘intrinsic’ or ‘internal’ aging which is already in our genes from the moment we’re born and then there’s ‘extrinsic’ or ‘external’ aging which is caused by wind, sun and other external forces.Internal AgingAny anti aging skincare regime you use – even if you start at age 20 – will not change your genes. The elasticity of the skin begins to reduce by your mid-20s, the production of fresh cells may decrease slightly and dead skin won’t shed as quickly as it once did. You may not notice these things occurring when you’re still young but when you get into your late 40s or 50s you may then begin to see the results of this process with fine wrinkles appearing, especially round your mouth and eyes; hollowing cheeks and eye sockets; sagging jowls and dry skin.You can thank your ancestors for much of this process. Some people are lucky enough to have “youthful skin” genes and others come from a long line of wrinkled prunes!External AgingWell, you do have some control of the appearance of internal and external aging with the right anti aging skincare products and with some sensible precautions. Strong sunshine will, of course, dry out and wrinkle skin so avoid EVER going outside, even on a cloudy day without some skin protection. Never use sun-beds! Wrap your face up in a scarf against strong winds. Don’t ever smoke or give it up if you already do. Avoid “tight expressions” – by this I mean frowning habitually or performing any facial contortions – even facial exercise which will increase those wrinkles.Gravity is another external factor. If you look at older people you’ll see the signs of gravity pulling at their jowls, ears and under eye area. You can’t avoid gravity but you can diminish the effects if you begin your anti aging skincare routine early enough.Skincare routineThe best anti aging skincare products will be high in anti-oxidants and low on damaging chemical ingredients. The kit I would recommend contains an anti-wrinkle formula; an eye cream and a firming face cream. It has dramatically reduced the signs of aging on my face, not least because my skin looks so much plumper and brighter. I started late though and I’d recommend – for men or women – that you begin your routine before the more dramatic lines have appeared.Unsure what to use?Well, at least if you can try a product before you spend out cash, you can’t really lose. Whatever you decide upon, enjoy your anti aging skincare regimen and smile. A few gentle smile lines over time are a very attractive feature of an older skin!

Knowing How to Read Nutrition Labels

Nutrition labels are on every food item that you buy in the supermarket. Many people take these labels for granted and never really pay attention to the information that is given there. Learning how to read the information is important, but knowing what the information means is vital to your health and well being.Knowing what is contained in a product, of course, can make your decision easier, but knowing just what nutritional value each ingredient holds is more important. Each item will give the information based on a diet of about 2,000 calories so you have to pay attention to the diet example and the amount of calories and nutrition per item.On each nutrition label, you will find serving size information, calories from fat, total fat contained in the serving, and all of your vitamins and minerals that are contained in the product. These items allow you to make the proper choice of whether or not an item is worth buying or if you should pass on it and move on to another item that has more nutritional value.The serving size is important to pay attention. For example, if you usually eat 2 cups of cereal at breakfast but the nutrition label says that the serving size is 1/2 cup, this means that you will have to multiply the calorie count by 4 to get the proper information about the cereal. If there are 100 calories per 1/2 cup, then you know you are eating 400 calories per serving of cereal in the morning. If a large percentage of the calories is derived from fat, then you know you are eating a high fat food with little nutritional value and this could influence your decision about buying the product or about how much you choose to eat each morning.You have to pay attention to the fat calories if you are watching your weight because they are the hardest to burn during your normal activities. If you are eating a high in fat diet, you know you will have to compensate for this fat intake by doing more exercise especially the exercises that help you to burn calories.Reading the nutrition label as you can see is very important, but knowing exactly what it is telling you is more important. Take a look at the items you have at home and you may discover some surprises as you sort through your pantry. Eating a diet full of fat and empty calories could be the reason you are suffering from depression, have sluggish energy level, are fatigued, and have other illnesses that many people do not associate with their fat intake. Buying fresh and buying healthy should be an important goal for anyone who plans on living a healthier lifestyle. If you are having problems with your diet, check the nutrition labels of the food products you buy.
