YOUNG SKIN: WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AND HOW TO TREAT IT
As a vital organ, the skin undergoes many changes and different phases throughout a person's life. Each of us, therefore, experiences baby skin and then experiences a phase where we have young skin and, finally, mature skin. Let's discover together the characteristics of young skin!
Just like mature skin, young skin is also something that we will all have sooner or later in our lives, and it is not exactly a skin type in the same way that dry, normal, or oily skin is.
At this point, you may be wondering how can we define young skin and how can we recognize it? Certainly, it is a life stage of the skin whose duration and characteristics are different in each individual and is influenced by several factors, including genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. To simplify, we can identify young skin from the moment it is visibly elastic, firm, toned, vital, and fresh-looking.
In general, we can agree that everyone has young skin until about the age of 25 to 30 years, the age at which tissues begin to sag leading to a gradual loss of tone and elasticity and, therefore, a shift to another phase in the life of the skin itself.
HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUNG SKIN LONGER
Keeping skin young and elastic is one of the most common beauty desires. As much as time always takes its course and none of us can stop it, there are some tricks we can implement in our lifestyle to promote the well-being of our skin. Let's find out about them together:
MOISTURIZE SKIN AND BODY
More than 50 percent of our skin is composed of water, which is also why it is important to maintain proper hydration throughout the day. How? Both from the inside -through the intake of liquids, such as water, herbal teas, and teas (without added sugar) and foods such as fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamin C, Omega 3, and Lycopene-and from the outside through the application of cosmetics with moisturizing action.
PROTECTION FROM THE SUN
Daily protection from the sun and UV rays with appropriate sunscreens, not only in the summertime or when going to the beach, is essential to delay skin aging and the appearance of spots and blemishes.
Sleeping well is essential for the all-around well-being of all of us, we know. Proper rest affects not only our physical and mental health but also the health of our skin! In addition to sleeping at least 7 to 8 hours a night, you can regain your inner calm by giving yourself moments of relaxation, such as a half-hour of meditation a day/two to three times a week or practicing yoga.
To postpone the loss of tone in your facial muscles and tone the cheek and mouth areas, you can help yourself by practicing some facial gymnastics, or face yoga, exercises every day. Choose the ones best suited to your needs; there are various types. For example. Exercises for a smooth forehead and toned eyelids, exercises for youthful, shiny eyes, exercises for full, full-bodied cheekbones, anti-wrinkle exercises, and many others... You'll only have to surf the Internet a bit to find what you're looking for!
