Early ageing signs are a nightmare for me as I am almost approaching the 30’s. While it is normal to(mentally)accept ageing once we cross 30’s, it is equally dismaying to bear its brunt when you have just crossed 25.
Sadly, the bitter truth is that majority of young women have succumbed to dullness of skin, dark eye circles, fine- lines and wrinkles.
As an influencer, fashion and travel editor for a luxury magazine my job demands extensive travel and meticulous work, I myself have faced situations akin to many others. The exposure of UV rays while shooting outdoors, pollution, poor diet – devoid of nutrients, lack of workout, almost no sleep, stress and most importantly low intake of water reduced my skin and overall health in shambles.
I was envious of my mother and grandmother who still boasted of their glowing skin. Subconsciously, I knew it was the result of decades of healthy lifestlyle, nutritious diets and clean atmosphere in which they have thrived blissfully.
Taking a cue from it I decided to delve deeper and share with you the reasons behind early ageing in today’s young women.
Here are they:
To all the hard working ladies stress is like a constant companion. It has been scientifically established that regular stress increases the hormone cortisol in our bodies. This further leads to acne breakouts, skin dullness, wrinkles and age spots. Regular workout, meditation and indulging in your favorite hobby helps in bringing down the stress levels.
Poor Nutritional Intake
Studies have shown that high intake of refined flour, sugar, salt, aerated drinks, processed meats and hydrogenated oils increases the inflammation inside our bodies. More to it most of junk food consumed by today’s youth has no nutritional value and are hard to be digested. Poor skin quality is the result of poor intake of nutrients necessary for its development. One should have more water, green vegetables, seasonal fruits and fiber rich foods for a good health.
Few days back the entire capital was gasping for breath wearing pollution masks. The toxic substance in air and water makes way into our bodies through lungs and the pores of the skin. This leads to poor skin conditions over a period of time. One must avoid going out when air quality is worse or wear N95 masks.
Poor Sleep Pattern
Medically 6-8 hours of sleep is must for sound health. Poor sleep leads to puffy face, dark circles and elevated stress hormones in body. While it may sound great to check your instagram accounts late until night but in fact it ruins your health. Sleeping on time and setting your morning alarm is a must for a healthy life.
Harmful UV Rays
Ultra violet rays from the Sun have the potential to cause skin damage, age spots and skin discoloration and even skin cancer.
Despite a fix for each of the above stated lifestyle related problems it becomes impossible to stick religiously with each of them, finally humans are prone to errors. So is there a solution to it?
Is there a product to tackle the menace of ageing?
Until recently, I was impressed with three unique skin care products launched by Himalaya – a name to reckon with international excellence in ayurvedic healthcare.
Himalaya personal care recently launched its first Youth Eternity Range formulated from the finest of nature’s youth-preserving ingredients. The range contains a breakthrough technology of plant stem cell extracts from the Edelweiss plant – found in the Swiss Alps and herbal active extracts of Rose Myrtle, Fire Flame Bush and Cipadessa baccifera. On application, these Plant Stem Cells infuse the cells on your face with antioxidants and give them the healing power to regenerate. It’s the most natural way to retain the beauty of your youth.
There are three types of creams from the ‘Youth Eternity’ range of which I have become an ardent fan – the reason being amazing natural results with no side effects.
This cream is power packed with anti oxidants and herbs which have the potential to regulate ‘Youth genes’ and works in tandem with the skin matrix. The cream works against ageing by reducing fine lines, wrinkles. The cream is non greasy, light and is fast absorbing. I was amazed to see reduction in age spots and pigmentation within a month. The cream also reduces visible pores, evens skin tone, and enhances skin luminance.
The second one from the range was Youth Eternity Night Cream.
Rich in powerful antioxidants, polyphenols, and anti-aging properties the cream works overnight to provide intense hydration, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin even-toned, healthy, and visibly youthful. The cream improves skin elasticity and hydration and also smoothes the rough skin. The cream is a special blend of Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells, Woodfordia, Rose Myrtle, Cipadessa, and Apple.
Having positive personal experiences of the two creams I was sure that the third one from the range Youth Eternity Under Eye Cream would also stand up to its name.
The under eye cream gently nourishes and hydrates the tender skin around your eyes, leaving it remarkably bright, healthy, and youthful. There is visible reduction in under eye pigmentation and dark circles along with its quality to cure puffy morning eyes. Rich in anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties, this is a superior blend of ingredients like Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells, Woodfordia, Rose Myrtle, Cipadessa, and Amla.
Why I highly recommend Himalaya’s Youth Eternity skin cream range is due to its natural goodness. It is recommended for all those young women who are facing early ageing signs on their skin. Also, unlike chemical based cosmetics it does not have any side effects and restores the youth naturally. The plant stem cell based research and exotic herbal actives makes the range even more effective in it cure.
Just go for it!
