Your face is the most exposed portion of your body and also the most sensitive one. And as you get older, your diet, lifestyle and hormones take a toll on your skin. Wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dark circles and blemishes can be a shock when you look in the mirror. Therefore, you need to give your skin a little more care in your 50s than you did in your 20s or 30s.
Here are a few tips that you can follow to keep your skin flawless and glowing.
* Balance the hormones: With ageing, these hormones become unbalanced and we can see the changes following menopause. Due to this, women experience dry skin or oily skin and even adult acne. When these hormones are well-balanced, we feel and look energetic, healthy and vibrant.
As there are super foods like berries, walnut, avocado and turmeric when combined with proper diet and a healthy regime can give us glowing skin.
* High insulin is bad: High levels of insulin can increase wrinkling of the skin. Our body gets an excess of insulin when we indulge in sugary foods like bakery items, packed juices, and other sweet items. If you go for sugar-laden eats, it’s not only bad for the waist line, you are also likely to have a dull complexion and damaged skin.
* Prefer more pro-biotics foods: Reach out for foods that are high in antioxidants as well as pro-biotics, which are naturally occurring and good-for-your-gut bacteria. Pro-biotics help in creating a healthy gut, so less toxins are absorbed into the bloodstream.
* Consider house plants for skincare: Plants act as a natural humidifier. So, keeping them on your office desk or indoors will keep your skin moisturized. Having said all this, there is one more benefits of indoor plants — an increase in oxygen levels.
