I get asked quite a lot what are my top 3 most powerful anti-aging rules, so here I am sharing them with you.
1: Use Sunscreen every single day
Yes even on winter days. And yes even if you spend most of your days inside.
Why? Because the single most effective way to accelerate skin aging is to expose your skin to UV-radiation. It is a sad fact indeed, because we all love the sun, but yet it is the cold truth.
Rule no 2: Never ever smoke
It’s not just the inside of your body that gets affected by cigarette smoke. Smoking is another bulletproof way to get wrinkles prematurely.
Why? Because cigarette smoke contains tons of toxic chemicals that will damage the collagen and elastin. As mentioned above these proteins are important for your skin’s firmness and elasticity and as they degrade, so will the quality of your skin.
The breakdown of collagen and elastin caused by cigarette smoke will speed up your aging and make your skin less firm, smooth and elastic.
Rule no 3: Get your Beauty Sleep
This might be the hardest rule to follow, due to the stressful everyday life that most of us have. But still, it is one of the most important actions you must take if you want to counteract aging in an effective way.
Why? Because it is during sleep that your skin gets a chance to recover, heal, and rejuvenate. And there’s not a cream or mask in the world that can replace the power of a good night’s sleep.
