4 Tips for Beautiful Skin When You're 40 PlusAre you in your 4o’s and you’re trying your best to keep your skin younger looking? Well, you are not alone in this. Most women who reach the age of 35 are already beginning to get worried about skin aging. It’s a good thing that in today’s world and age, help is readily available and it’s just a matter of finding out about them and getting them from the most reliable sources.

Here are some skin care tips for women in their 30’s and above who would like to keep their skin youthful looking.

Tip #1 Feast of Fresh Vegetables and Fruits

Nobody can go wrong by eating healthy, and eating healthy is most helpful in ensuring that your skin will remain supple, clear, flexible, and younger looking. Healthy eating means eating right – plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits for fiber and vitamins. More than the fiber and vitamins, fruits are also known to be very good antioxidants, and the best sources are colorful ones such as tomatoes, carrots, oranges, peppers, berries, cantaloupes, spinach, tangerines, squash, apricots, beets, peppers, sweet potato, and beans.

Tip #2 Drink Plenty of Water

Water does wonders to the skin, and by this I mean drinking water everyday to as much as 9 to 12 glasses.  This may sound too much, but when taken in stride, it really is not much. Water helps a great deal in the circulation of blood and in cleaning the body by flushing out toxins. Water also plays a very big part in keeping the skin hydrated and when the skin is properly hydrated, the development of wrinkles and fine lines is abated, at least up to a certain length of time.  No early developments of fine lines and wrinkles, and that’s something worth all the effort.

Tip #3 Get Enough Vitamin A In Your Body

Beauty and health experts have found that giving Vitamin A to the skin diminishes fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Vitamin A comes in many forms such as topical creams and ointments as well as in oral forms.  Dermatologists generally prescribe Vitamin A to treat acne and other skin conditions. So where can one get vitamin A? Well, green leafy vegetables are a good source of Vitamin A as well as eggs and low-fat dairy.

Tip #4 Take Vitamin C for Protection

Vitamin C is essential in order to protect the skin from the harmful rays of the sun. It also helps repair the damages done by free radicals. Vitamin C helps keep the skin supple and flexible. So what are the best sources of vitamin C? There are plenty of fresh fruits loaded with Vitamin C such as citrus fruits, papayas, and kiwi. Vegetables rich in vitamin c include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and green leafy vegetables.

There’s still a lot that can be added to this list, but suffice it to say that even by just sticking to what was written above, of course coupled with regular exercise and adequate sleep, there’s no need to worry just yet about wrinkles and fine lines.
