At What Age Should You Start Anti-Aging Skin Care?
First of all, one must remember that a young woman should pay attention to skin care from the age of 18 to 20, when the skin is still young, elastic and contains a sufficient amount of fatty layer. As a rule, at this age, simple cosmetic procedures are enough: application of a cream with the designation 20+, regular use of a facial scrub, cleansing procedures. It is also important to remember that bad habits, especially smoking and alcohol in any quantities, contribute to the destruction of collagen protein, which is important for beauty and health, as a result of which age-related changes can appear much earlier than 35 years of age.

How to tighten your face at home
Prevention is always more effective than dealing with an existing problem. But at a young age, when age-related changes have just begun to manifest themselves, you can try to correct the situation without using radical measures, such as injections and plastic surgery.
First of all, you need to revise your own. If you smoke or drink alcohol, it will be better for your skin to quit these habits. Alcohol, even in microscopic doses, contributes to the destruction of collagen, which inevitably leads to smearing of the face contour. Substances contained in tobacco smoke contribute to the destruction of vitamin C, without which collagen synthesis by the body is impossible.
In addition, it should be noted the actual uselessness of expensive collagen creams, since the diameter of the collagen molecule is too large and this is due to the inability of collagen to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin. Therefore, it is important to mend. This can be done with food. For this, it is necessary to include in the diet foods rich in vitamins and, above all,. This vitamin is found in berries (rose hips, viburnum, black currants, lingonberries, strawberries, sea buckthorn, cranberries). Various vitamin drinks and teas can be prepared from fresh and dried fruits. Also, berries can be ground fresh with honey, added to salads, and sauces can be prepared for various dishes. It is better not to subject the fruits to heat treatment, which will inevitably destroy vitamin C. Vitamin C, which is important for collagen synthesis, is also found in green vegetables and herbs: cabbage, parsley, broccoli, dill, spinach, and so on. These products can be used to make salads and raw sauces.
In addition, you should include in your daily diet foods containing amino acids from which collagen is synthesized. These are, first of all, such amino acids as. contain a variety of seeds and nuts, such as pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, walnuts and pine nuts, pistachios, peanuts. Also, this amino acid, essential for beauty of the skin, is found in legumes, for example, nogut and soybeans. Dairy and fermented milk products are also rich in glycine. The main sources include various types of legumes and cabbage, flax seeds, cheeses and other dairy products, wheat and oats, as well as nuts, green vegetables and freshly squeezed fruit juices. found in milk and dairy products, legumes, seaweed and other edible algae.
It is also important to maintain amino acid levels to combat aging. This amino acid is found only in blood and muscle tissue, so only red meat can serve as a source of carnosine. It is important for vegetarians to engage in regular physical activity in order to increase the concentration of carnosine in the blood. Collagen synthesis is promoted. To maintain normal hormonal levels, it is beneficial for a woman to have regular sex.
