Best insider tips stay younger and healthier longer.
1. Long young and healthy
How young we look is largely dependent on us because up to 60 percent are external factors that make us look younger or older. Negative effects of too intense sunbathing, lack of exercise, smoking, unwanted diet or improper care habits increase and leave signs in the form of creased skin and wrinkles. The fact is that age-related changes in age are already visible at the age of 30: they lose their flexibility and humidity and the first expression lines appear. Since about 40 more and more wrinkles are added and the existing ones are deeper. With optimal precautions, you can not prevent wrinkles forever, but they are still significantly delayed. These are the most important:
- Do it without nicotine
- No excessive sunbathing
- Reduce stress and ensure adequate sleep
- Drink 1.5 liters of water or herbal tea a day
- Eat nutrition-rich foods: Fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants (vitamins A, C and E) that neutralize free radicals that damage cells
- Regularly move (more at point 2)!
2. Problem areas rejuvenate sports
Exercise is an excellent means of aging. And best, you do not have to be a competitive athlete to keep your skin young and firm. Conversely, too intense training can even speed up the aging process. It is more important to move regularly. Walk more, garden, dance or cycling. Enduring sports include hiking, jogging, hiking or cross-country skiing.
The best young effect in sport can be achieved by a combination of training and strength training. With simple exercises such as squats, scrubs or rings (beginners can hold their knees on the ground!) Build muscles that burn more fat and tighten the skin tissue. This prevents not only cellulite but also promotes your radiation through better body posture and better body feel.
3. The secret of beautiful skin: collagen
Full skins, shiny hair and firm nails: these are the features of a youthful look. Behind it is a specific protein: collagen, the most important component of skin, bones, teeth or blood vessels. In our body we find it mainly in connective tissue – it is the most important structural protein of the skin and it acts as an inner, durable skeleton, which makes the skin from the outside appear full and firm. For skin health, functional collagen production is essential.
But at a young age – in the mid-20s, the body begins to break down collagen. The result is that the skin becomes thinner and weaker and wrinkles develop. At the age of 60, only 20% of the original amount of collagen remains. The most affected collagen degradation is usually a face. But also weak upper arms and cuts on the hips or legs (cellulite) are signs that collagen is missing.
4. Knowledge of aging
Good news: With a new concept, collagen degradation can significantly slow down â € "and even partially retreat. How does it work? By applying a collagen booster cream from outside and using collagen capsules additionally. This combination causes an increase in collagen formation in the body. Visible effect: smaller wrinkles, nicer hair and firm nails. "The combination of collagen creams and collagen capsules is highly recommended," says Viennese expert on beauty and plastic surgeon dr. Artur Worseg. The latest beauty hype is a collagen capsule with peptides. "The study showed that the body's own collagen increased by up to 60 percent, resulting in wrinkles and improved hair and nail growth," Worseg said. Especially on the active ingredient Versiol®, which contains optimized collagen peptides, now uses the actual course. No wonder: Regularly used as a supplemental nutrition, the active ingredient increases among other things the moisture content of the skin, slows the wrinkles and improves cellulite.
Of course, a conscious lifestyle also greatly contributes to the overall vitality and visible skin health. Those who supply the cells with sufficient protein (proteins), antioxidants (especially vitamins C and E!) Just like unsaturated fatty acids and drinking at least one and a half liters of water a day, they can positively affect the collagen scaffolding and hence the appearance of the skin from the inside. Fish, chicken, turkey, gelatin and beef soup (cooking with bone!) They are considered natural sources of collagen. You should especially drop from sugar: skin age faster.
5. Top combo: cream and capsules
New and especially effective: special creams based on so-called collagen boosters (such as Lift & Repair Day Cream *). These collagen assistants help to better supply the skin with collagen, thereby removing the wrinkles from the outside. The skin is also better moistened and optimally protected. This also applies to sensitive skin. Anti-aging effects are supported by the oral intake of high-quality collagen peptides (for example, in MEDIACAL BEAUTY for cosmetic spa cosmetics for cosmetic improvement and repair **). In addition, enriched with vitamin C, zinc, biotin and selenium can be reduced by wrinkles, hair and nails strengthened.
Do you want to do something for a beautiful, young skin? Perhaps the most important rule is: thoroughly remove makeup every night and clean the skin with water! The water should not be too hot, as it especially removes sensitive skin that tends to redden, moisture and promotes dry wrinkles. Too cold water does not dissolve well the dirt particles. Lauwarm tempered is ideal. Remember that the best care only works on well-cleaned skin!
