Delay Skin-Aging With These Tips

Limiting sun exposure.
Sunlight is a major cause of skin aging. When out in the sun, always protect yourself with sunscreen and avoid sun exposure when the sun is strongest, that is, between 10am to 4pm.

Moisturize your skin.
Do not be misconstrued into applying commercial moisturizers with synthetic ingredients because they may hasten rather than delay aging. Little do most us of us, but natural moisturizers can be found right in your own kitchen. Honey has been an ancient moisturizer and so is milk. In fact, Cleopatra was reported to pamper her skin in the luxury of a milk bath.

Drink water, drink water, drink water.
It has been said many times but it’s worth reiterating. Drinking eight to 10 glasses of water a day is one way to keep your skin hydrated and revitalized. It works wonders on your skin as well as on your system.
