For women, pursuing beauty almost seems innate human nature. Both young girls and older ladies want to show their best icons. Skin is the primary factor of beauty, according to Chinese thinking. Good skin is obviously related to genes, but the decisive part is the maintenance of postnatal health. People from different ages should focus on different parts of skin care, and there are different kinds of methods, drinks and food habits people can follow.
25 years of age and below: Cleaning
Features: Young people’s skin membrane is integrated, their metabolism is exuberant, and they excrete a lot of oil.
Skin Care Focus: Do deep clean to skin periodically and use oil control skin care products to avoid acne caused by excessive oil secretion. Do not give too much nutrition to skin, and do not use farinose cosmetics so that we can avoid pores to be clogged and acne. However, that does not mean you cannot use cosmetics at all. Women can use moisturizers and sun blocking cream sometimes. I need to remind you that some young people feel their skin is tender so they can use children’s skin care products. However, this is wrong. Children’s skin care products do not have the moisturizer, anti-wrinkle, whitening, freckle prevention, and sunburn repair treatments needed for adults.
Dietary Advice: Eat some food that helps to reduce oil secretion such as fresh vegetables, fruits, and soy products, and less spicy or sweet food. Drink a lot of water daily and less soda. Tea is a great natural plant full of nutrients that can be added to the water.
25-year-old to 40 years old: Moisturizer and Sunblock
Features: The metabolism is slower. The skin is easy to get dry, sensitive, pigmentation, and lack of flexibility. There will be false eye and forehead wrinkles. The oil secretion will reduce but the T-part is still fairly strong.
Skin Care Focus: Besides regular and thorough cleaning, you should pay attention to moisture and sunblock protection. Because the pigment begins to precipitate, a lot of people use whitening products that have quick effects. As a result, the skin epidermis is damaged. Chinese beauty specialists recommend doing whiten moisturizing mask 1-2 times a week, and sunblock throughout the year. Make sure to avoid exposure under the sun especially in the summer. Use a hat and sunglasses for outdoor activities. In addition, make sure you get enough sleep.
Dietary Advice: You can eat more grapes, potatoes, oranges, lemons, green peppers, tomatoes and so on. But be careful, it is best to not eat fried foods, which consume moisture from your body.
40 years old and over: Enhance Skin Elasticity
Features: The metabolism is very slow, and the skin becomes dry. The collagen in the skin is reduced, so there will be wrinkles, and skin will become loose.
Skin Care Focus: Enhance skin elasticity, and delay skin aging. At this time do not use soap to wash your face; you should use facial cleanser that is suitable for your own skin. And you should choose to use anti-oxidation, anti-aging moisturizing cream that can keep the skin moisturized and enhance skin elasticity. You should do nutrition moisturize mask treatment 1-2 times a week.
Dietary Advice: Eat more sesame, wolfberry, honey, vegetables, fruits and other foods that have plenty of vitamins, and eat soy products that supply phytoestrogens. All of these foods can be used as anti-aging. In addition, women who are over the age of 40 should maintain a good mood, and join some outdoor activities.
