From minimising sun damage to deep nourishment for your skin, a thorough skincare regime started as early as in your 20s, can prove to be anti-aging and youthful, experts say.

“An effective anti-aging skincare routine is a daily investment. Building a skincare routine with our daily habits will have a bigger impact on what we see in the mirror. Your care for your skin is very personal and it differs from person to person,” Dr Navin Taneja, Director of the National Skin Centre told IANSlife.

His top skincare tips for beautiful skin results:

1. Use sunblock

For healthy and glowing skin, wear sunscreen every day and proactively protect yourself from exposure to harmful rays. It’s a key regimen for skin health. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin and cause skin aging. Even when it is cloudy outside you still need to protect yourself from the harmful rays.

SPF 30-50/PA+++ sunscreen should be applied half an hour before sun exposure and be applied at least thrice a day. Sun-damage is cumulative, and regular use of sunblock slows down signs of premature aging like pigmentation, fine wrinkling and collagen depletion of the skin.

2. Try a pH balance cleanser

A big mistake would be not washing your skin with the right cleanser. Harsh soaps and cleansers with harmful chemicals can make your skin rough, overly dry or overly oily. Soapfree mild pH-balanced cleansers are most suitable and give excellent results, preserving a healthy layer of natural oil and moisture on skin.

3. An antioxidant rich diet

What you eat is quick to show on your skin. Antioxidant rich foods combat damage caused by stress, pollution and poor diet. The free radicals speed up the aging process and this is exactly what antioxidants help fight against. Blueberries, avocados, kale, oranges, pears, sweet potatoes, wild salmon, and watermelon are foods which help the skin cells stay healthy. Fatty fish, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds are rich sources of Omega-3 fatty acids – essential for moisturized skin.

“To keep your skin looking young, it is best to start taking care of your skin when you are young,” agrees Dolly Kumar, cosmetic engineer and founder-director of Skinella.

As per her, skin benefits from staying hydrated, always using a sunscreen before going outside, getting good sleep and regular exercise.

“However, it is most imperative to use products that contain no harsh chemicals like parabens and sulphates. Following a CTM regime everyday with the right products devoid of harsh chemicals helps keep skin always young and fresh. Skin care products made with superfoods also add a lot of vitamin C and antioxidants that protect skin from free radicals,” she concludes. (IANS)

Higher Fruits and Vegetables Intake Beneficial for Women: Health Researchers

A healthy diet, rich in fruits and vegetables is known to benefit the human body in so many ways, as now health and lifestyle researchers have found that it may also play a role in lessening various menopause symptoms.

Although hormone therapy has been proven to be an acceptable method for treatment of menopause-related symptoms for many women, the search for nonpharmacologic treatment options is ongoing, especially for women with certain risk factors and those who are not candidates for hormone therapy.

Specifically, there has been a focus on identifying modifiable lifestyle factors that might prevent or alleviate menopause symptoms, said the study, published in the Menopause: The Journal of the North American Menopause Society.

“This small cross-sectional study provides some preliminary evidence regarding the influence of fruit and vegetable intake on menopause symptoms,” said study researcher Stephanie Faubion from The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) in the US.

NAMS is North America’s leading nonprofit organisation dedicated to promoting the health and quality of life of all women during midlife and beyond through an understanding of menopause and healthy aging.

According to the researchers, previous studies have suggested that dietary factors may play a critical role in estrogen production, metabolism, and consequently, menopause symptoms.

In particular, the consumption of fruits or a Mediterranean-style diet, characterised by a high content of vegetables, fruits, cereals, and nuts, was linked to fewer menopause symptoms and complaints.

This new study goes a step further in looking at specific fruits and vegetables and their effects on various menopause symptoms.

Citrus fruits, for example, were called out as having an adverse effect on urogenital scores compared with other types of fruits, as were green leafy or dark yellow vegetables compared with other vegetables, they added.

“There is ample evidence that a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables has a beneficial effect on health in a myriad of ways, but additional study is needed to determine whether various menopause symptoms may be affected by dietary choices,” Faubion said. (IANS)
