This oxidative stress promotes skin aging.
Active oxygen is not completely removed by internal antioxidant enzymes that are self-produced in the body, so external antioxidants should be taken.
Eating foods containing antioxidant nutrients that inhibit active oxygen is also a good way to do it.
If you want to suppress skin aging, it is good to eat carrots, broccoli, beets, tomatoes, avocados, kiwis, and pistachios, which are fruits and vegetables containing antioxidant nutrients often.
And don’t forget to drink water often to replenish your skin’s moisture.
5. Practice a skincare routine focused on moisturizing.
A skincare routine focused on skin moisturizing helps you escape the stress of skin aging.
As mentioned earlier, our skin starts to age at the age of 25 and the humidity control function becomes weak, so we gradually feel the skin dry.
The stratum corneum, called the skin barrier, consists of dead skin cells and lipid components, each of which consists of a 1:1 ratio of ceramide, cholesterol, and fatty acids to prevent the evaporation of water.
However, as the skin ages, the skin barrier weakens because the thickness of the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous fat layer becomes thinner and less elastic.
Eventually, various bacteria and skin irritants penetrate the skin, causing dermatitis, and the moisture in the skin is taken to the outside through the damaged skin barrier, causing itching.
If you scratch the skin to relieve itching, the skin barrier becomes weaker, causing a vicious cycle to repeat.
Therefore, just as we keep our daily habits such as taking vitamin C and drinking water frequently so that we do not catch a cold, we can prevent skin aging as well as skin health only if we are constantly interested in moisture care in our skin and take care of it.
The moisture content in the skin is a barometer that measures the age of the skin and further suggests the physical health condition.
If the moisture is sufficient in the skin, the skin looks clear and the skin elasticity is strengthened and can effectively prevent wrinkles.
Because moisture is the element that connects the fibers in the skin that influence the skin elasticity such as collagen or elastin, the skin elasticity decreases when the moisture level in the skin is lowered.
So the essence of anti-aging to suppress skin aging is skincare that makes skin moist enough.
Since South Korea is a country that has created a new category of “Skin Care” in the makeup-oriented global cosmetics industry, skincare products for skin moisturization are developed and sold in various types.
If you use these skincare products to create a skincare routine that keeps the moisture in your skin and keeps it consistently, you will be able to effectively suppress skin aging.
