Natural Ways to Fight Signs of Aging for African-American Women

While it is important to know that there is no way to prevent aging, there are ways to slow it down. It is easy to spot signs of aging in African-American women starting from our early 20's.

In today's society, people take plastic surgery into consideration and expensive black women's skin care products to improve the look and feel of our skin. While these are always an option, it's never too late to prevent further damage to your skin by simply making some lifestyle changes. You don't have to take the drastic measures of plastic surgery or spend tons of money on skin care later in life.

Smoking causes wrinkles! If you do smoke, quit. We all know that smoking is bad for us and affects our body negatively. Smoking contributes to premature aging and many other health problems. The many chemicals in cigarettes influence the skin's structure and dehydrate the cells, resulting in increased aging.

Catch up on your sleep: People who sleep at least seven to eight hours a night are healthier than those who lack sleep. Sleeping allows your body to repair cellular damage and recuperate. To help prevent signs of aging for your face, try sleeping on your back. It may sound odd, but sleeping on your stomach or your side can actually damage your skin by slowing down the circulation (your face is squished into the pillow). This can result in the appearance of unwanted and unattractive wrinkles.

Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen! Lather it on and learn to love it! It is very crucial to wear sunscreen everyday, even on cloudy or rainy days. Hopefully we all know that the sun has harmful affects to our skin. Sun exposure over the years leads to wrinkles and hideous pigmentation spots.

There is No excuse to not wear sunscreen! Many African-American women have a common misconception that there is no need for them to wear sunscreen when it reality it's the exact opposite. Sunscreen comes in all types and is formulated to be lightweight and beneficial to your skin as well as providing sun protection.

Moisturize & Hydrate= Younger Looking ... skin from the inside and outside! Hydrated African American skin is healthy and looks almost moist while helping show fewer wrinkles and lines. As we age, our skin loses elasticity. Using moisturizers with ingredients such as vitamins, jojoba, aloe vera, and Shea can help repair your skin.

Consistent moisturizing is one of the best ways to restore elasticity and prevent the breakdown of African American skin. It is important to drink TONS of water to hydrate your skin internally and to use a good moisturizer.

Healthy Living, Healthy Skin Keeping a balanced diet can dramatically strengthen your skin and prevent premature aging. Fruits and antioxidant-rich produce give your body strength to fight and repair damage. Keeping your insides healthy means you will have less external maintenance.

So, whether you're in your 20's, 30's, 40's 50's or 60's, your skin is maturing. What better way to fight the signs of aging than to take the suggestions to heart and take care of your skin from within as well as use a proper skin care regimen to take care of it externally.
