1. PROTECTION, PROTECTION, PROTECTION!
Become sun-wise by wearing protective clothing, using a broad screen sun-protection cream, avoiding where possible direct sun exposure between 10am and 3pm. Environ’s RAD SPF 15contains sun filters that provide protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
2. DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY!
People who believe they look good have a strong sense of self esteem, are freed from anxiety and enjoy high energy levels. Stress and anxietycause accelerated free-radical activity, and restricted blood and oxygen flow to the cells. Try multi-beneficial activities like yoge, dancing, walking or Zumba!
3. WHERE THERE’S SMOKE… THERE ARE WRINKLES!
Aside from those tell-tale lines around your mouth, smoking robs the skin of oxygen and precious Vitamin C, doubling the rate at which it ages.
Did you know that you destroy approximately 25mg of Vitamin C in your body each time you smoke a cigarette?!
4. SLEEP WELL!
Sleep is the foundation of your well being. Human growth hormone is released to revitalise your body and regenerate cells. A good night sleep is essential to effective repair of the stresses and strains the skin endures previously during the day.
5. EAT WELL!
Eating the right foods gives the skin the nutrients it needs to be healthier, brighter, smoother and less wrinkled.
The top beauty foods include: antioxidant-rich berries, broccoli, dark-leafed greens, oatmeal(slowly cooked-not instant) for its soluble fibre and B-complex vitamins; essential fatty acid-rich olive oil, salmon and soy. And, last but not least a good daily intake of water.
