You need to realise that the health of the skin depends upon the health of the body as a whole and so an holistic approach to skin care is the most effective. Let's look at some factors which are known to age the skin.

Lack of Exercise

Exercise is important in keeping the body healthy in general and in aiding the lymph system, an important elimination system for waste products. Facial exercises can help keep the face wrinkle-free. Check out Facial Gymnastics which is a great way to maintain a youthful looking face.

Poor Diet And Nutrition 

It's vital to make sure your diet provides the correct nourishment for your skin. Avoid chemicals like pesticides as much as possible by going organic. Wholefoods are much healthier than refined foods such as white bread because they retain more nutrients. Fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are good sources of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids which are important for the health of the skin.

Environmental Toxins

Use natural products in the home for cleaning, washing clothes and so on. Try to avoid household products with lots of chemicals in them, especially where the products come into contact with the skin.


Make sure that you drink enough fluids during the day so that you keep hydrated. This is vital for the health of the skin. It's best to consume healthy drinks like water.

Exposure To The Sun

The sun is one of the most significant factors which ages the skin. So you need to protect yourself adequately by limiting your exposure and by using sunscreen.


Smoking is the second most important factor contributing to aging the skin. Research has shown that if you smoke, your skin ages more rapidly.

Drinking Alcohol

Alcohol is the third most important factor in aging the skin. It causes the small blood vessels near the skin's surface to dilate. The blood vessels then become damaged which results in the flushed appearance of people who abuse alcohol.


When you are stressed, the stress hormone cortisol is produced and the effect of this is to increase oil production in the skin. This can lead to flare-ups of acne and other skin conditions.

Poor Sleep

Long-term poor sleep or lack of sleep causes stress whose negative effects have already been mentioned. Lack of sleep also increases the inflammatory cytokines and insulin resistance both known causes of acne.

By following these clear skin tips, you'll keep your skin healthy and slow down the aging process. Take a look at my other pages for lots of useful information and advice on specific skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.
