How to Protect Body Skin From Premature Aging
For those of you out there who have been shopping for sun protection clothing, you may be a little confused as to what type of SPF to buy. The most important thing is that you protect your body from the sun in the summer and/or in winter. Sunscreens are made of several chemical substances including sunscreen, zinc oxide, and titanium dioxide. There are also a few natural sun protection ingredients such as vitamin E and essential fatty acids which help to protect skin from damage caused by the UV rays of the sun.
A natural moisture emollient such as Shea butter or a similar product will eliminate 99% of the dryness caused by the sun. It will moisturize your skin without making it oily. If you suffer from dry skin, you should look for products that are especially formulated to combat dryness and are not full of added fragrances or colors.
If you have acne, eczema or any other skin types which are sensitive to chemicals, then you should look for an antibacterial cleanser which will eliminate 99% of the bacteria on your skin. There are many different types of cleansers available for those with all different skin types including normal, oily, dry and combination. The only problem is trying to figure out which one to use, which is the only way to get the results you desire. The most effective anti-bacterial cleanser for combination skin is Tea Tree oil based cleansers.
Some of the other natural antibacterial agents include Echinacea and Goldenseal. These ingredients will eliminate 99% of the dryness and itching caused by the bacteria on your skin and are also beneficial for improving the immune system. There are a couple of things to look for when purchasing a high SPF moisturizer for dry and combination skin. First, look for SPF values of at least 15. Second, look for a product which contains Shea butter or some other natural moisturizing ingredient.
For dry skin, particularly facial skin, it’s important that you don’t use a moisturizer containing oils. Try using an oil free facial skin care cream instead. A high quality facial cream will provide nourishment to your skin while effectively eliminating any and all contaminants which could eventually cause premature aging. Look for anti-oxidants and antibacterial properties as well. Many plant oils such as grape seed oil and macadamia oil contain proven anti-oxidant properties, which help to keep your skin young and beautiful looking.
In addition, look for a product which contains functional keratin. This ingredient has been proven to significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin in your body. This makes a huge difference in preventing premature aging both in facial skin as well as in the rest of your body. This ingredient also helps to increase the production of new cells in your body and in turn reduces wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. Try using a high quality anti-wrinkle cream which features Functional Keratin as one of its key ingredients. This type of product will literally give your face a face lift in no time!
