Have you ever wondered how some people are able to maintain such perfect skin, even into old age? While it takes quite a bit of effort and attention, almost anyone can enjoy supple, healthy skin for most of their life. Here are several things you can start doing today to better take care of your fragile skin.
Diet is a huge influence on your skin’s health. Luckily, there are so many options when it comes to types of foods you can eat to improve your skin’s health and elasticity.

Thanks to the many resources on the internet, it is so easy in this day and age to find delicious recipes that are healthy for your skin as well. If you are a picky eater, you may just need to creative find ways of incorporating these superfoods in your daily meals. For example, throw some berries, greens, and natural peanut butter into a smoothie. Bread and grill some salmon for fish tacos and top them with tomatoes, lettuce, and avocado. There are so many possibilities!
Moisturizing is a must-do to achieve strong, supple and healthy skin. According to Heartwood Seniors, you should moisturize after every shower and during other times as your skin needs. Finding a cream lotion with a good balance of water and fatty substance will be the best for your skin.
However, you shouldn’t just trust any brand. There are some lotions that may feel nice or sell cheap but do more harm to your skin than good. Before purchasing a moisturizer, figure out what your skin type is. If you tend to have dry skin, an oil-based lotion is best. If you have oily skin or sensitive skin, a light, water-based lotion free of scents may work best.
One of the best things to do to attain healthy skin while maintaining its strength andelasticity is exercise. You may have heard the phrase: “use it or lose it.” If you don’t practice an active lifestyle, your skin’s cells are less able to rid of cellular waste and receive lower supplies of oxygen needed for skin cell growth. However, always remember to apply sunscreen when exercising outside and drink lots of water—those are also keys for healthy skin.
Your skin makes up the largest organ on your body. That makes it a very important body part. Give it the wellness it deserves by following these guidelines. In return, you will enjoy supple, healthy skin for years to come.
