At 30, even if our skin still looks radiant, the aging process has already started deep within. To preserve the youthful appearance of your facial skin and combat the stresses of time, it’s essential to embrace a few simple daily reflexes.
Reflex N°1: Stock up on anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids
To preserve your skin’s youth, you must also take care of it from the inside. While a healthy balanced diet is essential to the proper functioning of the body, in the fight against aging you need to focus on foods rich in anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids: tea, ginseng, ginger, red fruits, grapes, pink grapefruit, salmon, herrings, eggs and linseed oil.
Reflex N°2: Remember to hydrate
Whatever your skin type, hydrating well is crucial. And to do so, even specific skincare products are not enough as they only work from the outside. For healthy skin, remember to hydrate from the inside as well by drinking water and also teas, herbal teas, fruit juices, etc. The important thing is to ideally drink a minimum of 1.5 litres of liquids throughout the day without waiting to feel thirsty.
Reflex N°3: Practise regular physical activity
Exercise also plays a decisive role in skin health and quality. Regular physical exercise not only helps to stimulate blood circulation, oxygenate the body and stimulate collagen synthesis, it also helps to expend energy and therefore evacuate stress, which is also involved in the skin aging process.
Reflex N°4: Adopt a healthy lifestyle
As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. A healthy lifestyle on a daily basis is therefore essential to preserving your skin's health and youthfulness. Smoking, alcoholic drinks and stimulant drinks, long periods in the sun, sleep, stress and overworking all attack the skin and considerably alter its quality, speeding up the skin aging process.
