It's a fact of life, no matter how much we try to deny it - as we get older, our body ages. It cannot be stopped. However it is possible to slow down the process a little, and minimize the effects of aging. Let's take a look at some antiaging skin care ideas.

Are you tired of being told that you should be exercising regularly? It keeps you fit, keeps your weight down, and keeps you healthy and so on. But did you also know it helps to keep your skin more elastic too? Add to that the usual advice about eating a healthy diet and dropping any harmful habits like smoking and drinking to excess, and you're on track for younger looking skin.

Although maintaining a healthy lifestyle will do a lot to keep your skin looking younger, you can still give your skin an extra helping hand. Nowadays there are so many antiaging skin care products on the market that it can make your head spin. The reality is that most of them can't live up to their outrageous claims about keeping you looking youthful forever, but that doesn't mean they don't work at all. If nothing else, they will help to hydrate the skin. Dry skin is one of the biggest risk factors for developing wrinkles, so a good antiaging skin care cream can certainly help to reduce the drying effects of the sun and pollution. If your skin has been particularly dry, an antiaging skin care cream may even help to "plump" up the skin with moisture and so reduce many fine lines and wrinkles.

Another important weapon in your fight against aging is sunscreen. The sun's rays are responsible for an enormous amount of damage to your skin, and most of the time it happens without you even knowing about it. It's important to spend some time in the sun, but you need to protect your skin while you're outside.

The sun dehydrates your skin, and by removing the moisture, allows the skin to wrinkle and age. The sun can also cause dark spots on the skin, thin the skin, create blemishes and can increase the size of the blood vessels in your skin. A number of these may develop into skin cancers over time. So protecting your skin with sunscreen does a lot to slow down the process of aging. Many antiaging skin care creams contain a sunscreen, so make sure you look for it when you're choosing your skin care products.

Finally, you need to use an exfoliating scrub to help reduce the effects of aging. A product that contains an exfoliating cream gently scrubs the skin, removing the layer of dead skin cells that builds up over time. By removing the dead skin cells, you help encourage the skin to grow new, healthy cells to replace them. Exfoliating also helps to unclog the skin pores, allowing the skin to breathe and look healthier.

Over a long period of time, your skin will age and you certainly can't turn back time. But that doesn't mean you have to let it happen any faster than it has to. Use of an antiaging skin care cream, sunscreen and an exfoliating scrub, together with a healthy lifestyle, can do an enormous amount to keep you looking younger as long as possible.
