Soft healthy skin is commonly found in younger individuals. Later on in life, skin will not be as soft, smooth, or healthy than the before your senior years, because the body will eventually slow down and will no longer perform natural actions.

The stimulation of proteins like elastin and collagen is one of the affected functions as one age. That’s why it s important to be responsible enough in taking care of your skin so you can maintain its health and texture as you get old. There are some things to keep in mind in preserving the beauty of your skin.

The first is to keep the skin hydrated and avoid it from dying out. Dry skins are more prone to different skin problems, so you have to avoid your skin from drying. The best way to do this is to drink adequate amount of fluid a day especially water.

You can also apply hydrating and moisturizing substances on your skin like lotion. However, it would be really helpful if you use lotions with natural ingredients like manuka honey, grapeseed, macademia oils, and shea butter.

Achieving soft healthy skin is possible when you eat food rich in essential vitamins and minerals. Fruits and vegetables are excellent source of these nutrients and should be included in each meal. Vitamin E rich foods are good for skin. Foods that are rich in Vitamin E are almonds and spinach.  Vitamin B Complex and Vitamin D have their roles in producing healthy skins. It is important to include them in your diet.

Protect your soft healthy skin from sun’s harmful ultraviolent rays and use healthy sun blocks when exposing yourself to the heat of the sun. Though sun is a good source of Vitamin D, over exposure can be harmful to the skin so it is best to be always protected.
