🦋Tuesday Fountain of Youth Tip🦋
I often get questions or comments about my skin so I wanted to share some information and tips on this week's post. Photos #1- me & mom, #2- me age 14 and Grandma. #3- Mom & Grandma, my high school graduation 1984. (No filters)
🔍The Mirror. As babies our skin is perfectly soft and smooth, and like the rest of our body our skin ages. Wrinkles are an external result of that aging process and these 3 things have a influence.
Our Gene's, Lifestyle choices, and Environment. ♀️ ♂️Our Genes, the physical, is often a reflection in the Mirror of your mother's skin at that age.
💡 Our lifestyle choices, smoking, stress, lack of movement, hydration, poor nutrition, alcohol consumption, skincare regimen and sleep all affect how were aging inside out.
☀️ Environment, spending too much time in the sun with unprotected skin. (You all know this if you've visited your dermatologist in the summer with a tan, just saying.) The suns radiation break's down collagen, making our skin less elastic, this process is known as "photoaging." Not to mention sunspots and skin cancer. 💯All of these affect how our cells are aging at the cellular level. 👩👧As a young girl, around 12, I remember standing in my grandmother's bathroom as she showed me and taught me the importance of skin care. Always remove your makeup before bed, moisturize day and night, and eat lots of vegetables. (She had a huge garden!) I don't think she knew the effects of the sun back then. Like my grandma, the sun is my vice. I love being outdoors when it's sunny and warm, it's just a non-negotiable, so I do the best I can. (Sunscreen, the hours I'm out, wearing a hat...) 😊 Besides my genetics, and environment, I think what has made the most impact on the condition of my skin is my lifestyle choices. Nutrition-💩load of veggies, collagen, 1-gallon water a day, sleep, exercise, low stress. Also, I have sensitive skin so have finally found what works for me. 😕 As a kid had eczema. From age 30-32 I went through acne, and was under a dermatologist care. 🗝 The key is to find what works for you and the lifestyle you want to lead.💜 🌹Check out my story for more! at Montana
