How I Deal with Aging Skin

We are constantly aging. There’s no way to stop it. Yes, it’s a bummer, but accepting the fact that aging is part of life will make you feel better about yourself. Embracing “old age”

helps you prepare yourself mentally. As early as your mid-twenties,  you need to start seriously begin maintaining your skin (stay out of the sun, cleanse, moisturize). “Aging gracefully” is not

always genetic and you have to act on it with a real strategy. This results in better skin that you can make you appear younger than you actually are.

And how exactly do you do that?

I am 33 years. I noticed my skin starting to age when I was only 26 years old. Slight wrinkles started  to appear on my forehead, eye area and smile line.  It was shocking! The horror of dealing

with acne and wrinkles is not fun at all.

So what did I do?

I fought back!

I want to share with you my skin-care routine that slows down the clock and enhances your skin’s overall well-being.

Eat Healthy

You are what you eat. You’ve heard this saying before and I will tell you that you need to eat healthy as often as possible. If you eat a lot of junk food, your skin will become dehydrated, irritated

more wrinkly and look bad. I know this is a hard one for a lot of people,  especially if you’ve eaten junk food your whole life. I love junk food! I love chips (my favorite is Cheetos), candies and

anything greasy (I’m obsessed with fried food). However, every-time I eat junk food my skin becomes very “zitty” and more fine lines show up on my face. So I occasionally eat bad food, but I

am working hard to eat more healthy on a  regular basis.

Exercise Regularly

Keep on moving! Go to the gym at least twice a week or walk a mile per day in the park. The more your heart pumps the more oxygen you’ll inhale in your body. Exercise can improve your

health while making you look and feel younger. Doesn’t it feel good after working-out? According to research,  exercise creates body substances that slow down the aging of the skin. I go to the

gym twice a week. In my gym there is a steam-room and dry-sauna. I highly recommend Gold’s Gym to everyone because they keep their facility very clean. I spend one hour working-out and

15 minutes in the steam-room. My skin feels soft, supple and very moist afterwards.

Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate

Drink plenty of water all day. It depends on your height and weight, in general, health authorities commonly recommend eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 liters, or half a gallon water

per day. I have a gallon of water on my desk everyday. I do not drink it all at one time, but I sip on water constantly all through out the day. You’re not drinking enough water if you have

chapped lips and your skin is too dry. Dry skin means more wrinkles.

Avoid All of The Following:

Sun 

Tanning is really bad for your skin. I am guilty of extensive tanning when I was in my early twenties. Even with SPF on, your skin will still get damaged by the Sun. However, I don’t tan as much

anymore. I only tan now for a little bit in the summer so I don’t look too pale at pool parties.  Wearing fashionable hats now at the beach is a must for me.

Stress

Stress is the ultimate enemy of your skin and your entire well-being. I got really stressed out one time and weird cysts developed under my skin. It was very scary. Fortunately, it was not cancer.

The cysts went away on its own. Moreover, acne and wrinkles show up more when I’m stressed out. Handling stress the right way can improve the appearance of your skin.

So how do I handle stress?

  • Gardening is an awesome way to fight stress. It is therapeutic and plants have a way of helping you forget life’s problems. I am serious!

  • Having turtles and a tortoise is another way I combat stress is. They are the most calm and easy-to-care for animals. I can watch my turtles swimming around all day.  I love watching my tortoise eat and bask in the sun (or his heat lamp).  Find peaceful hobbies to forget about your problems.

 

Negative people 

They are everywhere–online and in real-life. Surround yourself with nice, loving and wonderful human. Being a blogger/vlogger can be tough at times because I receive negative comments

from time to time. I try to understand where they are coming from but don’t let it get to me. I understand that we all have different opinions about almost everything in this world, good or bad.

We can be a little too honest and hurtful with our opinions online these days.

So what about bad elements in real-life? Remember, there will always be someone out there. Stay away and distance yourself from negative people. It is not good  for you or your family. Life

can be stress – free. It’s up to you.

Too much partying!

Drinking alcohol, smoking and staying up late at night will make you age really fast. No further explanations!

Seriously, who doesn’t wake up after a night of partying and looked 10 years older? I consume alcohol very moderately. Also, my party days are very much over, since I have kids to care for. My

family and I wake up 7:00 in the morning everyday.

 

 

Use the right skin care products

If you are not using right products for your face, your skin will age sooner rather than later. I’ve used a lot of skin-care products since I was 13 years old.  I like to change it up depending on

the climate, condition of my skin and financial status!

Lately, I’ve been using the following products in my anti-aging regimen:

Affordable Face Oil for Fine Lines and Wrinkles

      If you have been following my blog, then you would know my obsession with face oil. I absolutely can’t live without it. I use it for my hair, nails and skin. Face oil is also great for removing makeup without tugging the delicate skin around your eyes. However, some brands can be very strong, so it would be best to choose wisely. Picking up the wrong oil can create breakouts and damage your face.

I have stumbled upon this brand Morgan Miller Hydro-Botanical Concentrate Facial Oil, which is very affordable compare to other brands that are over $50.  You only need two to three drops of oil — massage onto the skin including your neck. Use this day and night to keep skin moisturized. This 1 oz. bottle will last you about 6 months or longer.

One of the “key-ingredients” this face oil possesses is lavender oil — famous for its antioxidant, easing stress and tension of your skin.

Next is grapefruit oil, purifies and clears your skin. The pollution in our environment is impossible to stay away from. So keeping skin clean and purified from pollutants is a must.

Lastly is the jojoba oil, famous for its antibacterial properties which help control bacterial growth in the hair follicle. It is also an anti-inflammatory agent that calms and soothe irritated skin.

    If you avoid face oil because you have oily skin, join the club! Many women are scared of applying oil on their skin. Yes, I used to “hands-down” avoid it too. But it’s surprising that products that most of us are already using contain oil.

I think it’s worth trying different type of oil to learn which works best for your skin type.  The benefits I’ve experienced are absolutely worth it after I’ve added face oil to my skin care routine.
