Many of us spent our youth playing in the sun. We didn’t think too much about sunscreen, we were more concerned with getting the best tan out of all of our friends. I know as I was one of these people.
Now I am older and my face started telling the whole world that I spent too much time in the sun! That leathery, wrinkled look of sun damaged skin really depressed me. That is until I tried the some secrets. Now, you would never guess that I was a former sun worshiper!
Green Tea: I just can’t say enough about green tea. This stuff is simply amazing! It has been scientifically proven to slow down the aging process not only of your skin, but your entire body! It has antioxidants that are crucial to repair sun damaged skin. You need to drink green tea all year round, but more of it in the summer months to keep your skin looking great.
Food: Did you know there are foods that are actually proven to repair sun damaged skin? It is true. Tomatoes, watermelon, blueberries and cold water fish all have antioxidants in them that literally rejuvenate your skin cells. Get to eating!
Sunscreen: The best thing you can do for your skin even after it has been sun damaged is to wear sunscreen every time you go outdoors– regardless of the season or the weather. This will help prevent further damage and help reverse the damage that has already been done.
I live by these secrets and it shows on my face. People used to guess my age and say I was at least 10 years older than I actually was. Today, they always guess younger! How great will it be when they do the same for you?
