Hydration

Your body is made up of up to 70%  water and your skin is a massive 64% water. It makes sense that hydration is key to preventing wrinkles and keeping your skin healthy. Drinking eight glasses of water a day is important, increasing that amount if it is very hot or you are exercising a lot.

Exercise

Moving your body is a natural stress reducer, and it also boosts your heart rate and improves circulation. This helps to ensure oxygen and nutrients get to the skin, promoting new collagen production and a healthy glow. We need around 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity, or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity every 7-day cycle.

Meditation & Mindfulness

Meditation and mindfulness are thought to help our minds slow down, and give us a moment to be more centered. Practicing daily helps to lower stress long-term. Here’s a free stress meditation to start with on Youtube.

Work/ Life Balance

Balancing our work lives and personal lives is hard, especially when we can so easily work from home, and don’t have a clear cutoff point for when work ends, and relaxing begins. Unfortunately, the less balanced those things are, the more stressed we can be. Correcting your work/ life balance is key to reducing stress and helping keep those stress wrinkles at bay.

Eat Well

Eating a balanced diet of healthy proteins, fats, carbohydrates and colourful fruits and vegetables is so important. The food you eat feeds your skin from the inside and it affects your overall mood and energy levels. In general, the more whole foods your diet is, the better your nutrition is likely to be.

Sleep Well

When you sleep you have more blood flow and so your skin spends this time repairing itself. The less sleep you have, the less time your skin has to repair.

UV damages the skin, and it is present even on a cloudy day. You don’t have to be in the direct sunlight for it to damage your skin. Ideally you will wear a high factor like factor 50 sun cream every single day, before you go outside. This helps reduce sun damage and slow the formation of wrinkles.

A Good Skincare Regime

A good skincare regime helps to keep your skin clean, exfoliated and moisturised. Consider speaking to a professional skin technician or dermatologist who can recommend products that are specific to your skin needs.
