Protecting your skin and lips is vital as sun damage occurs when UV light breaks down elastin fibres in the skin. This causes your skin to sag and stretch with the appearance of line and wrinkles. This can then lead onto drooping of loose skin around the eyes, cheeks, chin and neck, back of the hands and décolletage. Once the damage is done you can take steps to reverse the damage & keep your skin looking young and healthy but it is easier to prevent the damage than reverse it!
Food and lifestyle tips: Ageing & damage comes in many forms and some of those you may not expect to age your skin, others you will be familiar with such as;
1. Sun damage
2. Body Inflammation
3. Hormonal imbalance & decreasing levels of hormones
4. Lack of nutrition dense food or absorption
6. Lack of exercise
7. Increased levels of uncontrolled stress
8. Lack of good quality sleep.
Therefore it is important to protect your skin& lips from over exposure to the sun rays, ensure that you are well hydrated and that the food that you choose to eat is predominantly full of vitamins and minerals as well as good fats and proteins. This then allows your body and skin to rejuvenate, repair, make good hormones and promote vitality. Exercise is vital for stress management as it is for your skin’s repair and when you exercise and become ‘flushed’ think of your skin as having a mini facial.
