As the years add up and your age just seems to keep creeping up in numbers you may be noticing more lines, wrinkles, and age spots. When you catch a glimpse of yourself in a passing window you hardly recognize yourself anymore. You are inundated with commercials and advertisements promoting anti-aging skin care promising you the moon but most fall short and many contain harmful or even damaging ingredients. With the vast number of anti-aging products on the market it can feel a bit overwhelming. There are some natural solutions that are not only safe but will visibly improve your skin making it look years younger.
Natural Skin Care
Many popular lines now tout being natural but all too often contain only a dusting of these natural powerhouses; just enough to be able to put “natural” on the label. Look for high integrity lines that create natural and organic products void of harmful chemicals and toxic ingredients. The ingredient list should be packed with natural and organic ingredients. Something like an organic moisturizer should have a list of scientific names followed by their natural name. Argan oil, coconut oil, calendula, jojoba oil, and rosehip oil are just a small sampling of powerful anti-aging ingredients straight from nature.
Red Light Therapy
Red wavelengths ranging from 625-660 nanometers have been scientifically proven to improve the skin. They have the ability to safely penetrate into the layers of the skin prompting over 24 positive reactions at a cellular level. When combined with other wavelengths such as yellow and infrared the red light therapy anti-aging benefits are greatly amplified. As the powerful lights permeate the cells they increase collagen and elastin production, boost cellular energy, improve circulation, and kick start reparative and healing properties. These positive actions help reduce lines and wrinkles, diminish age spots and scarring, even out skin tone, tighten and firm, and encourage a healthy glow. You can treat your face, décolleté, hands, and feet with smaller systems or treat your entire body with a red light therapy bed.
Diet, Supplements, and Exercise
There isn’t a magic pill you can take to instantly get younger looking skin, but living a healthy lifestyle will have a profound impact on your skin. Eating more fruits and vegetables will nourish your cells and protect them from free radical attacks. Supplements such as digestive enzymes help your body function optimally allowing cellular energy to be directed to repairing and healing. Exercise is not only beneficial for your health and weight but also improves your circulation moving oxygen more proficiently throughout your body feeding your cells and encouraging healthy cellular function.
Taking care of your health and skin takes diligence and patience but by using safe and natural alternatives will give you a more beautiful and youthful complexion without the risk of negative side effects. Living a healthy lifestyle and using safe anti-aging skin care and tools will help you look younger and healthier with a luminous glow.
