Slow Ageing Tips for Growing Old Gracefully

Helen Mirren nailed it when she said "Ageing is an Adventure." Embracing your age and pampering your skin is liberating and fun. You don’t have to wait till you start seeing the signs of ageing to start taking care of your skin. Make sure to adopt healthy habits early on to reap the benefits of youthful looking skin as you age. Here are some unhurried ways to protect your skin and grow old in style.

Sleep Better

There's nothing like a good night's sleep to boost your skin cells’ repairs and keep your skin looking great. If you have problems nodding off, have a relaxing night time routine that will prepare your body and mind for bed: read a book, have a relaxing bath, apply a face mask, sip a mug of hot milk or unwind to some calming music. Enjoy some 'me time' to clear your head and sleep better.


Don't Skip Sunscreen

UV rays cause your skin to prematurely age. Applying a sunscreen suited to your skin type from an early age is essential. The L’Oréal Paris UV Perfect Matte & Fresh is one such sunscreen that protects you from the harsh sunrays without feeling sticky and oily on the skin. The best part about this sunscreen is that it’s suitable for all skin types, oily, dry, and combination. The mattified kaolin clay in the sunscreen helps absorb excess sweat, making it a perfect choice for Indian summers, even in extreme humid conditions. If you’re out in the sun for prolonged periods, remember to re-apply the sunscreen every 2 hours.


Choose the Right Skincare Products

Pollution makes your bodies produce harmful free radicals that prematurely age skin. It leaves skin feeling dry, dehydrated, and prone to painful flare ups. Plus, pollution aggravates damage caused by UV rays. Invest in skincare products that help preserve your youthful skin and give you a radiant complexion. The new L’Oreal Paris’ Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence not only moisturizes your skin but also deeply repairs and plumps your skin giving it a smoother, youthful look. The Salicylic Acid in the Micro-Essence penetrates up to 10 skin layers to reveal bright, radiant, crystal clear skin.


Have a Balanced and Nutritious Diet

A poor diet with too much sugar, salt, and fat can wreak havoc with our skin. Lower your salt intake and stay away from deep-fried foods. Limit the consumption of processed meals, junk food, and sugary drinks. Instead, stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables that provide you the necessary nutrients needed for a healthy functioning body. Nuts and dry fruits are a great source of healthy fats that give your body energy and support cell growth.

The secret to ageing gracefully is as simple as using the right skin care products and leading an overall healthy lifestyle. Even though you cannot change your natural ageing process, you can follow these tips to prevent your skin from ageing prematurely and look as young as you feel.
