How to look younger for longer, naturally.

 As we become older, skin becomes less elastic and fine lines and wrinkles appear. Call them laughter lines if you prefer. 

Daily skin care greatly assist in delaying the effects of time. But cleansing, toning and moisturising alone are not anti-ageing solutions. 

 

Here are some tips for delaying time, and how to look younger for longer by managing your health, fitness and wellbeing. 

  • Be mindful about following a balanced diet as the food you eat is important for your health and skin /complexion.
  • Drink water – plenty of it, balancing your diet and liquid intake.
  • Give cigarettes a skip – nicotine doesn’t do you any favours, and tell-tale smoking lines form earlier on your lips.
  • Try to avoid excessive alcohol – not always the fun option, but the sensible one if you want to take care of your face and liver.
  • Do your best to follow a regular exercise routine. An early morning walk, lunch time gym session or evening salsa class – whatever works for you.
  • Avoid eating trans fats and saturated fats as they aren’t great for your face or your ‘bottom-line’.
  • Adopt a skin care routine that is suited to your skin type, and follow it morning and night.
  • Never let it be said that we said, ‘Do this, do that, do the next thing.’ Rather, just do what you can, when you can.
  • Like all things, let common-sense prevail.

The above are all good habits, but may take time to establish.

Types of acne scarring.

There are two types of acne scars; pitted or pigmented.

Pitted scars happen when the underlying skin tissue has been damaged. Pigmented scars (either red or brown) are marks left behind after the acne has cleared up.

Acne scars are most likely to be caused when the acne has been squeezed or pinched or when the acne was particularly severe. Acne scars may take twelve months to heal on their own, however healing differs from person to person. Some people and severe cases of acne may have scars that simply never heal. Like all things, prevention, in this case, of scarring, is better than cure.

To address scars, for best results, it’s best to use an acne scar treatment as soon as possible after the scars appear.

Alternative natural herbal treatments for acne.

There are numerous herbs which are effective as a natural acne treatment. Try sage, sarsaparilla, yellow dock, burdock, basic, sandalwood or tea tree oil. Steep the herbs in hot water and apply the cooled infusion directly to affected areas. Neem is also effective in treating a variety of skin disorders. You can buy Neem in leaf powder form. 

Turmeric taken internally or applied as a paste to your skin is a good at-home treatment for acne – but do remember that it is staining and will add a yellow tinge to your skin that will require careful cleansing. So don’t try this before a big night out. 

Substitute regular tea for green tea which is considered to be helpful for cleansing your system. 

Fruit with high levels of acidity, applied directly to the skin is a great natural acne treatment. Choose from mango, pawpaw or grapefruit (avoiding lemon). Mash the fruit to a pulp and apply directly to your skin like a mask. You can add oatmeal or egg yolk if you wish. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse well.

Natural Toners to prevent acne 

A natural home-made toner suitable for acne can be made using cucumber juice, apple cider vinegar or tea tree distilled in mineral water. To help tighten pores after thoroughly cleansing your skin, rub an ice cube over your face before toning. 

Eating for a clearer skin.

If your acne is mild or less severe, there are some natural and effective acne treatments by following a nutritious diet that you can follow at home. 

What you eat directly affects your skin health, and perhaps more so if you are suffering from regular outbreaks. Foods you should eat for a clearer skin contain high levels of vitamins A,B,C,D, E and Zinc, not forgetting the all important Omega-3.  Vitamins that help beautify your complexion by feeding your skin are Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and Zinc. Acne aside, there are many natural ways to keep your skin in peak condition. 

When all is said and done.

Even if you are rigorous in following a healthy diet with balanced vitamins and minerals and have a scrupulous cleansing routine you may still have an occasional breakout. However, by adopting the very best and often natural acne treatments for your particular problem, your acne should clear and the longer-term problems of scarring will be greatly reduced. And, if you are relishing a clear complexion, that’s fabulous. But always keep a natural acne treatment on hand so that you can tackle any outbreaks from the first spot.
