Going through our daily routine, most of us feel the excitement of accomplishing milestones in our life, yet the anxiety we face due to aging is ever-present at the back of our mind.
If maintaining youthful-looking skin is important to you, pay attention to the following lifestyle tips that can be easily incorporated into your daily life.
1. Try facial exercises
The facial muscles of the face are very thin and delicate. Moving and nourishing the microscopic muscles affects the creation of wrinkle-free, elastic skin. In addition, it promotes blood circulation and facilitates metabolism, thereby increasing immunity.
Mouth the words “Ah, eh, ih, oh, woo”
If you tap your face while making “ah, eh, ih, oh, woo” sounds, you can stimulate the muscles around your mouth that are not normally used.
“Puffer fish face”
When you inflate your mouth like blowing a balloon, the muscles of the entire face are relaxed, helping to prevent wrinkles. Blow as much air as possible to make the mouth space wider. Hold this position for 15 seconds and repeat 3 to 6 times to blow the air out.
Do neck stretches
Stretching the neck helps to prevent wrinkles on the face by pulling the jaw line. In addition, the neck is an area where wrinkles easily occur due to the thin skin. Doing neck stretches can also prevent neck wrinkles. It is recommended to gently press on your neck with your hands while holding the stretch.
2. Consume antioxidant-rich foods
Free radicals are one of the biggest threats to premature aging. This is because free radicals combine with DNA, protein, and fat of normal cells to reduce their function, which can accelerate skin aging. To prevent premature aging, it is recommended to consume foods rich in antioxidants that reduce free radicals.
Simply add Fortune Delight® to water and drink. Polyphenols contained in green tea, a component of Fortune Delight, help to reduce free radicals in the body, and chrysanthemum extract is known as a good source of antioxidants.
3. Apply sunscreen
Did you know that one of the major causes of skin aging is exposure to UV rays? UV rays are present all year round. It is most severe in summer, but UV rays are also present in winter, so UV protection should be taken care of all year round. However, there is a tendency to neglect and not pay much attention to UV protection. These bad habits can be the cause of accelerated skin aging.
When the skin is exposed to UV rays for a long time, collagen and elastic fibers are destroyed. Collagen and elastic fibers are the most important factors in maintaining skin elasticity. Collagen loss due to aging is a natural phenomenon, but UV rays accelerate this.
Oi-Lin® Sunmilk Sunscreen SPF30 is a product that the whole family can use, and it is made with natural ingredients.
Hyaluronic acid and botanical squalene have powerful antioxidant properties, protect our skin and provide a moisturizing effect. In addition, aloe juice soothes skin irritated by UV rays.
4. Reduce stress
Another major cause of premature aging is physical and psychological stress. Stress, in moderation, can drive you to get something done. However, excessive stress may lead to premature aging.
When our body is under extreme stress, stress-related hormones are actively secreted to protect itself, and as the sympathetic nerve is activated, inflammation easily occurs in the body, and the body’s ability to regenerate is reduced. Stress can be accompanied by other various physical symptoms such as hair loss as well as skin aging, so try to manage stress before you receive it as much as possible to prevent premature aging.
If you think you are under a lot of stress right now, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and take a break.
This year, make positive changes to your lifestyle to promote healthy skin!
