There are numerous intrinsic and external factors that age skin and while many are uncontrollable, there are steps you can take to minimize their harmful effects. Read the list below to learn what is prematurely aging your skin:

THE SUN

The sun is the number one cause of prematurely aging skin. Almost 90% of the visible changes commonly attributed to aging are caused by the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays (1). Even on a cloudy day, up to 80% of UV rays can pass through the clouds (2)!

Pro tip: Thinking of getting a "base" tan before your beach vacation? Think again. There's no safe way to prep the skin for UV rays. Any time the skin tans, it's a sign of injury. The only safe way to spend a day at the beach is to use sunscreen and stay protected from the sun.

Wear a broad spectrum sunscreen every single day, no matter what. It is the single most important thing you can do for your skin.

 

POLLUTION

Dirt, smog, toxic gases, and free radicals can all become absorbed into your skin and speed up the natural aging process. Remineralist Daily Moisture is the perfect pollution solution. This lightweight, pollution-neutralizing lotion is the answer for modern day aging skin.

To protect yourself even more from free radicals, use antioxidant skin care, like Plump Start or Advanced VitaMineral C Complex, to scavenge skin aging free radicals and prevent inflammation.

 

POOR DIET

Processed foods, foods high in sugar, sodium, and trans fats all wreak havoc on your health and your skin. Eating poorly degrades elastin and collagen, which are the proteins that keep skin soft and youthful.*

“A poor diet can cause dullness, puffiness, redness, congestion, acne and more!” –Rhonda Robb, Licensed esthetician and Bioelements educator

If you want to prevent premature aging and keep your skin clear and healthy, eating well is a must.

 

MEDICATION

Certain medications can cause dehydration, increase sensitivity, and weaken the skin’s immune system, which all contribute to an aging appearance. If you have to take a medication that causes one of these symptoms, combat it by keeping your skin properly moisturized and detoxifying it regularly.

 

STRESS

When you are stressed it triggers the stress hormone cortisol to increase, which affects sebum production, microcirculation and hydration levels. To prevent breakouts, excess oil, and faster aging, make sure to minimize your stress as best as possible.

 

LIFESTYLE

There are some obvious bad habits that age you quicker, like tanning and smoking, but there are some surprising ones too, like using makeup wipes to remove makeup. Learn what bad habits to ditch and which to keep for youthful skin.
