Defy Age with These Highly-Effective Anti-Ageing Techniques
The human body’s functioning begins to go downhill after reaching its peak at 25-30 years old. After that, the muscle density of the human body will slowly begin to degenerate and loosen. The rate of death of the body’s existing cells will greatly exceed that of the newly born cells, and the collagen in the body will be quickly lost. The skin loses its elasticity and forms wrinkles, which makes ageing gradually apparent.
Many factors can speed up the ageing process. Psychological factors, improper diet, air pollution, staying up late, drinking alcohol, smoking, etc., will accelerate ageing. The air you breathe and the sun’s ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB) will cause the body to produce too many free radicals. As the free radicals accumulate, the cells will mutate, leading to premature ageing of the skin. Wrinkles appear, skin immunity is reduced, and likely to develop skin cancer. Once these free radicals enter the metabolic cycle, they will attack nearby cells and destroy healthy cells. Therefore, free radicals are the main cause of ageing.
In addition, the causes of accelerated ageing are sometimes not just reduced to one or two. Inflammation in the body, hormonal imbalance, genetic damage, loss of collagen, etc., are also factors that cause ageing and need to be considered and treated as a whole.
Solutions to fight ageing:
- Diet: Drink enough water and eat a balanced diet. Vegetables and fruits contain antioxidants and vitamin C, which have anti-wrinkle properties. Lycopene, anthocyanin, carotene and allicin are nutrients as well as powerful antioxidants. Vitamin C can promote the production of collagen, so if you want to maintain the elasticity of your skin, you should, in addition to consuming enough protein, also eat enough vegetables and fruits.
Also, Trans fats and refined sugar are the main culprits of accelerated skin ageing. Sweets can cause a saccharification reaction, causing ageing of the body. It will make the skin more elastic, causing it to age prematurely, and increase the possibility of it sagging and developing wrinkles. So pay more attention to what you eat. Do not consume too many sweets and junk food.
- Exercise: Exercising is necessary to fight ageing. Check your own situation; choose your favorite sports, such as hiking, cycling, brisk walking and/or swimming, etc. It is good to relax and decompress through the process of exercise so that you maintain an active and healthy mind as well as improve your sleep quality – one of the oldest recipes to looking young.
- Maintenance: Free radicals will accelerate the oxidation of your skin. However, there are many factors in life that produce free radicals. Therefore, choose skincare products that can fight free radicals or stimulate collagen production, and increase the elasticity of your skin. Also, don’t neglect the importance of sunscreen. In addition to giving you sunburn, it will also accelerate the skin’s ageing process. Therefore, sunscreen, apart from protecting your skin against the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays, is also an excellent anti-ageing product.
- Medical/cosmetic methods: In addition to using anti-ageing skincare products on your skin, you can also use medically-approved equipment, such as lasers, pulse lights; electric and sound waves to achieve skin firming, pull back the skin, and smoothen away wrinkles. Botox can block the nerve impulses of nerves and muscles, and relax excessively-contracted muscles to help reduce wrinkling caused by the excessive use of facial muscles to make expressions. Botox can also eliminate dynamic lines, such as crow’s feet. Injection of hyaluronic acid and other fillers can improve the static lines caused by ageing, and the relaxation and depressions caused by tissue loss.
