We can’t go back and protect our self from the sun when we were children, but we can protect our skin now from the sun and prevent further damage. Avoid smoking and other environmental toxins. These will cause your skin to age faster. A healthy diet will also provide nutrients that the skin needs and allow it to regenerate properly. Topically products that include anti-aging components, anti-oxidants, vitamins, and moisturizing components can turn back the clock on your skin. Anti-oxidants help reduce the effects of sun and toxin damage to the skin’s fibrous network. Vitamins A and C are incredible products and have been studied extensively for their Anti-Aging properties and should be a part of any routine. Also as we age the collagen and elastin that normally keeps our skin plump and taut gets damaged and broken down. Protecting these molecules is critical to Anti-Aging efforts.
