Fighting the effects of aging on your skin has long been a task for women, and men, around the world. While there are thousands of skin care products available that will propose to have power over your body’s aging of the skin. The truth is there are a few inexpensive techniques you can start right now in the comfort of your own home. You do not need fancy creams or expensive skin treatments to fight skin aging. Instead incorporate a vitamin rich diet, hydrate, exercise, exfoliate and moisturize to see younger looking skin in no time.

Vitamins

The two main vitamins you need to seek out in your diet are vitamin E and C. These two are essential to giving your skin a vibrant and firm appearance. A balance diet that is rich in green vegetables will help you increase the necessary vitamins to make you skin shine. Use kale, spinach or other leafy green vegetables in your salads or consider juicing them with some apples to make a vitamin rich morning smoothie. The food you eat is reflected in your skins overall condition and ability to maintain a young and healthy look, make sure you are feeding your body a nutrient rich diet.

Hydration

Your skin is made up of water, and desperately needs it in order to operate at its peak. To fight aging it is imperative that you fuel your skin with plenty of water; drinking water will make your skin look fuller and younger. A typical adult should be drinking at least 64 ounces of water and some doctors suggest even more, based on your current weight and activity level. Talk to your physician to see what they recommend for adequate hydration for your body.

Exercise

We all know exercise is important to living a healthy lifestyle, but it is also important for you cells to get rid of toxins. When you sweat, your body is better able to push the toxins out through sweat and then you can fill those cells back up with water. Make an effort to walk more, move more, or just get to the gym more. Any increased effort you make to exercise will result in your cells increasing their activity and your skin looking younger. Exercise also has the added effect of tightening and toning your body, which will help fight aging.

Exfoliate

You do not need to pay for a fancy spa treatment. Simply using a wash cloth and an inexpensive exfoliating cleanser every day will help your skin look younger. The exfoliating process removes dead skin cells so new, younger and more vibrant cells can be seen. It doesn’t take a long time and is a simple process anyone can do in the comfort of their own bathroom. Simply exfoliate nightly before you go to bed and follow it up with a facial moisturizer, you will see the difference almost instantly in how young your skin looks.

Moisturize

This is the area where many people will get caught spending hundreds of dollars on skin moisturizing products. But you do not have to. Instead of spending a large amount of money, simply invest in a good quality over the counter product from your local store. Find one that includes some sun protection so you can use it at night and during the daytime. After exfoliating, every evening, apply a liberal amount to your face. It is also important to apply moisturizer again in the morning to protect your skin from the sun’s rays and the chemicals in your daily environment. No need for expensive specialty products, just a simple moisturizer that makes your face feel hydrated will do the trick.
