“It’s unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don’t even give themselves a chance to see what they’ll look like as older persons…Your face tells a story . . . and it shouldn’t be a story about your drive to the doctor’s office,” Julia Roberts once said. If you want to keep it real like her, you don’t have to surrender your skin to the forces of gravitational pull, the fast dwindling cellular energy or, the harsh, skin-damaging environmental conditions without a fight.
Your Life Story On Your Skin.
We want your face to keep recording your life but, not at a speed that’s too fast — That’s the main goal behind natural skincare. So, if you are looking to get rid of your wrinkles for good, these five ways won’t give you what you’re looking for but, these are so powerful, they will make skin aging slowdown significantly.
Listed below are the top five ways on how to remove patchy skin and help to slowdown the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of skin aging:
Start by changing your mindset.
See the better side of everything, even the most challenging obstacles of your life. Stop expecting the end of the world to happen every single hour of your everyday. Learn to stop worrying and, most especially, to leave the things that you cannot influence to fate and for time to unfold.
Learn a few techniques to help you better manage stressful situations and people. When times get rough, keep your hopes up and keep smiling. Focus on the solutions, your options and the feasible strategies you must pursue. Be smarter. You don’t always have to meet your problems head on. Sometimes, the best way is to go around and find a back door. You will find yourself more relaxed and your skin glowing like never before.
Care more about what you are putting inside your body.
Mind the food that you eat, including how it was prepared. Always cook or order boiled and steamed. Refrain from chowing down on fried food and fast food as much as you can. Eat more of your raw, freshly cut garden salads and mixed fruit medleys.
To make sure you are getting enough good nutrients that you can find from your fresh fruits and veggies, mix them all up into a fresh smoothie. You don’t need a recipe to do that. For added taste, mix with yogurt or, fresh coconut juice for flavor. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Skipping canned and processed foods and drinks is also another way on how to remove patchy skin.
Flex those muscles.
Whether you like your workouts intense like a boxing session or, quiet like a yoga. If you can’t squeeze in an exercise regularly in your daily routine, you can always catch opportunities to be more physical. Park your car farther away from your office, school or the mall so you are forced to walk.
Exercise is important in keeping your skin healthy, glowing and young-looking. Those times when you feel your heart pumping from exercise signify that nutrients from your healthy diet are being distributed all over your body with relative ease than without exercise. Those nutrients are essential for skin repair and regeneration.
Physically exfoliate with a soft-bristled dermal brush or, prepare an all-natural facial scrub. When preparing one, keep in mind that you need your skin to be mildly and deliberately scraped off so, you need an abrasive ingredient like oatmeal but, not something like walnut shells which will be too hard for your skin.
Milk and citrus fruits are also natural alpha hydroxy acids that you can use to lift and eliminate the damaged surface layer of your skin. Always dilute your citrus in lukewarm water, milk or, honey in a 1:3 ratio to avoid burning your skin.
Get enough sleep.
A 15-minute power nap midday can reset your brain and recharge your body. At night, give your body at least 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep night after night. Think of it as giving your cells sufficient time to facilitate repairs and rejuvenate.
You can have an effective anti-aging regimen that is all natural and without jars of creams. On the contrary, you cannot achieve a healthy, glowing skin with the most expensive anti-wrinkle product if you disregard a healthier lifestyle.
