Many girls and women seek to prolong youth, but not everyone knows how to achieve this. Modern rhythm imposes an imprint on the psycho-emotional state and health. The most affected skin, which eventually fades. This factor is caused by weather conditions, external stimuli, rhythm of life, food and improper selection of cosmetics. To make the epidermis elastic, it is not enough to use cream and tonics. We need an integrated approach, which we will talk about today.
Factors affecting skin tone
- As mentioned earlier, skin elasticity is directly related to the environment, food, general health. Equally important is the hydration of the skin. Lack of moisture provokes draining, as a result of which the dermis loses its elasticity.
- The elasticity of the skin of the face is associated with the epidermis of the whole body. If you do not comply with an integrated approach, some cosmetic procedures for "face-lifting" will not be enough. Due to the fact that the production of collagen, hyaluron and elastin is significantly reduced, by the age of 30 one can see the first deep wrinkles.
- Collagen is responsible for the density of tissues, hyaluron helps the skin to retain moisture, and elastin gives a general tone. If for some reason one of the components is not enough, the skin begins to age prematurely.
- Ecological factor - an important aspect in the fight against wrinkles. Frequent climate change or sudden changes in temperature dehydrate the skin, slow down blood circulation and all metabolic processes.
Ways to improve skin elasticity
We have already said that it is possible to tone the skin only with the help of an integrated approach. Consider each step in order, we highlight the main points.
- Buckwheat groats will help preserve youthful skin; it contains a large amount of rutin and unsaturated fatty acids. These organic compounds prevent premature aging, smooth minor creases and accelerate blood flow.
- Regular consumption of fresh vegetables, berries and fruits helps to cope with dehydration. They maintain fluid balance in tissues, provoking accelerated production of hyaluron and collagen. It is also important to observe the drinking regime, which is directly related to the skin. Use at least 2.5 liters. clean water per day.
- Flax groats or seeds contain Omega acids that prevent cracking, flaking, and fading. Vitamins B3-B12 help the lipid layer to remain at the proper level, protecting it from the harmful effects of the environment.
- Pallor and gray skin tone indicates intoxication and a lack of iron in the body. Use veal and beef pulp, pork liver, chicken, egg yolks, fish, porridge and greens.
- One of the main products that increase elasticity, is considered to be selenium. It can be found in fresh garlic, sea cocktail, fish, eggs (chicken, quail), beef liver. Along with selenium, it is necessary to replenish the balance of zinc (mushrooms, bran, yeast, cocoa butter, all kinds of nuts).
Do not let stressful situations
- Negative factors provoke skin withering not only in women of age, but also in young girls. As a result of constant stress, the epidermis quickly ages, losing precious moisture.
- If the skin has fine wrinkles, in a short time they will turn into full-fledged creases. In this situation, there is only one way out - invasive cosmetology. In order not to resort to injections of Botox or Dysport, look for a way out of negative emotions. Read books, watch funny movies and favorite TV shows, dance.
- Once or twice a week, pamper yourself with a bath with essential oils and sea salt, these cosmetic options promote relaxation. Visit a lesson of yoga, stretching or Pilates, the listed directions normalize the psycho-emotional background.
- Due to stress, many girls suffer from chronic insomnia. Choose for yourself soothing drugs or drink valerian infusion to normalize proper rest (about 7-8 hours per day).
- It is known that heat sources improve blood circulation, speed up metabolism, expand blood vessels and capillaries. For this reason, it is recommended to steam the skin in all possible ways 1 time per week.
- An excellent option is a bath or sauna. During the visit, lubricate the skin with honey, only then go into the steam room. After a quarter of an hour, rinse the composition with ice water, such a move will give the skin a tone.
- In the bath it is necessary to do face scrubbing. To do this, combine into a paste-like mass of crushed sea salt and liquid honey. Massage the skin for 5 minutes, then rinse with cold water.
- Due to the high temperature, slags and toxins are removed from the skin, causing premature aging. Supplement the steaming with home or purchase masks. Nutrients are absorbed much faster into the steamed epidermis.
- If you can not visit the steam room, prepare a bath for the face. Brew in 5 liters of boiling water 100 gr. any medicinal herbs (sage, birch bark, rosemary, lemon balm, etc.). Dip your head over the container and turn around with a towel. Wait 15 minutes.
Use cosmetic ice
- Rubbing with cosmetic ice activates skin metabolism and improves blood flow. The procedure must be carried out daily. The rubbing time is 3 minutes, while it is not possible to linger at one point longer than 2 seconds.
- For making ice you need to take 30 ml. rosemary, 20 ml. oak bark, 45 ml. lemon juice. Pour over the listed ingredients 650 ml. boiling water, leave for half an hour. Strain, pour into forms.
- Also, cosmetic ice can be prepared from cucumber. Cut the "ass" with 2-3 fruits, chop into porridge with a meat grinder or blender. Mix with water in a ratio of 3: 1, packaged in compartments of the form. Freeze, apply in the mornings and evenings.
