3 Simple Tips for Younger Looking Skin

antiaging skincare tips

I was sitting down recently watching daytime TV. This is something I rarely, if ever, do! But I was flipping through the program guide when something caught my eye. On Dr. Oz’s program, he was going over skin care tips for staying younger looking. Even though I am not Dr. Oz’s biggest fan, he really offered a lot of valuable tips to his viewers. I immediately tuned in to get the scoop.

I already had a few guesses as to what he recommended for looking younger. Can you guess as well? Take a moment before you read on and then look to see if any of your guesses were right. And now here are his surprisingly simple top three tips for younger-looking skin.

1. Sunscreen

Use your sunscreen! The most important factor in selecting a sunscreen, however, is that you choose one that is safe and chemical free. Some of my favorites are: Loving Naturals, Keys Soap Solar RX, and Solis. While I am in total agreement that when you are in the sun for extended periods, you must use sunscreen, I also think you should get at least 15 minutes a day of unprotected sun exposure. We absorb vitamin D from the sun and research shows this is an essential nutrient for defense against many diseases.

2. Mega-Moisture

Always moisturize your skin. Our skin is punished daily by overexposure to the elements: sun, wind, cold, pollutants…nourish your skin by using a nontoxic moisturizer with anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants help protect the skin from free radicals, which cause aging! Try Bubble and Bee or Real Purity Creme Supreme (save $5 off your order when you sign up for their free email newsletter!)

3. Sleep on your back

This tip was an eye-opener for me. I never realized how you sleep can affect your skin. Dr. Oz made it a point of saying that sleeping on your back works with gravity…pulling your skin back. If you sleep on your side, you tend to press your face into the pillow. Dr. Oz recommends using a 1 micron pillowcase. The smaller the microns, the less likely your skin is absorbing dust mite waste. Yes, this is gross…but did you ever realize this can contribute to dull, wrinkled skin? I didn’t! Using a pillowcase with low microns is also good for allergies. Google this for more info.

So did you get any of the tips right?  The sunscreen tip was a no-brainer for me. We all know how essential it is to protect your skin from excess UVB rays (the harmful ones,) so this goes without saying.

Now it’s your turn!

Who out there already does these things? Anyone have any special strategies you use to look younger? Please share!

    Here’s another… stop smoking. Ok, that one may not be a problem for everyone. However, for those who smoke, the habit is causing your skin to age prematurely.

    Anti-aging nutritional therapy can cause changes to the side effects associated with age and reverse these effects by giving more energy and enthusiasm. Some of the foods that accelerate aging and free radicals would be the foods that contain large amounts of saturated fats and trans fatty acids. Always keep in balance what you eat, the lifestyle choices are yours to keep so you can control with good nutrition and also with the anti-aging supplement treatment plan. In addition, regular exercise and staying active will help you build and maintain strong muscles.

    I never even thought about how sleep position and your pillow can impact your skin!

    I have a hard time sleeping on my back as well, but perhaps I need to reconsider it for the reasons mentioned.

    I didn’t even now pillow cases came in microns.

    Looks like I have more to investigate here.

    Thanks for putting the information together.

    Any recommendations on where to find organic material, 1 micron pillowcases?

    Hi MaureenK,

    I’m not sure, but it was explained as a very high thread count. The purpose of this is so that allergens and dust mites cannot get through the material, so the more threads, the better off you will be, so I’d look for a high thread count organic brand. Hope this helps!
