As we age, so does the largest organ in the body. Exposed to the sun, smoke, and chemicals in daily-use products, it tends to sag, wrinkle, and stretch with time.
Yes, we are talking about your skin! The all-important organ that separates and protects your body from the environment. While staying healthy with diet and exercise makes a big difference, a skincare routine is equally essential to your overall well-being.
Using natural herbal and ayurvedic skincare products ensures that your skin retains its youth and vitality over extended periods of time.
“Aging is a fact of life. Looking your age is not” ~ Dr. Howard Murad
Herbal skincare products are made with natural ingredients that are gentle on the skin and are less likely to cause breakouts and other skin irritations. Regular skincare products, on the other hand, are chemical-laden. They may lead to wrinkles, spots, or skin damage.
Not only are natural products better for your skin, but they are also better for the environment. There you go, another major reason to go all natural! Commercial beauty products contain chemicals that are washed down the drain, contaminate waterways, and lead to more pollution.
Older adults often deal with skin that becomes thin and dry, and the ideal way to keep it supple is to follow a natural skincare routine. Skin that gets too dry is prone to cracking, dermatitis, and infection.
For healthy skin, here are some essential things seniors should do:
Eat right. Sleep well. Exercise daily. Protect your skin.
When we focus on nutrition, overall fitness, and a natural skincare routine, we get closer to achieving glowing skin. Natural remedies are not fast and take time to show results. So, the key is to be consistent in your choices and routines.
The number one cause of wrinkles, age spots, and skin damage is the sun. Using sunscreen is essential as the sun's harmful UV rays destroy the skin’s natural oils and elasticity and cause the face to age.
