You’re probably not aware of this but your daily habits mightily contribute to the health of your skin. From what we put inside our bodies to what we include in our skin care routine they can all contribute to wrinkles. So what’s the solution? Here are 12 ways to up-lift your anti-aging skin care routine… I’ll bet you wished you had known this sooner.
1. Avoid too much weight gain
When your face looks full it will usually make your cheeks plumper and stretch your face resulting in fewer wrinkles. But unfortunately if you gained weight in the neck area too that’s when you look older than you really are.
2. Use hydrolyzed soy protein
Hydrolyzed soy protein in skin care products increases the ability of the skin to hold moisture and provides a smoothing effect that minimizes roughness and wrinkles.

How awesome is that!
3. Cut back on sugar
Sugar is a major contributor to the loss of firmness in the skin, which can age you significantly. Foods high in sugar have been linked to advanced glycation end products (AGEs) which cause wrinkles and loss of collagen and elastin. Focus on a balanced diet with plenty of protein and fresh vegetables.
4. Sun protection
To avoid premature aging of your skin, you should use a sunscreen identified as "broad-spectrum." This means it blocks out both UVA and UVB rays, unlike just a sun protection factor (SPF) designed to block burning UVB rays. Look for sunscreen with zinc oxide for broad-spectrum sun protection and an SPF of at least 30. You can also experiment with physical protective barrier clothing and hats which are essential for protecting the skin.
5. Stay hydrated
If you don’t drink enough water it typically results in the increased appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and dullness. The amount of water you need depends on your body size and how active you are. Obviously if you’re exercising you’ll need to replenish all that sweat. Drink enough so that you keep a healthy dewy glow.
6. Use a cleansing brush
The beautiful thing about cleansing brushes is that it helps remove those dull, dead skin cells and it helps to absorb your products more effectively.
7. Get to bed early
Sleep is essential to your well-being. When we are sleeping, our bodies are repairing; detoxifying and our hormones are balancing. If you want to avoid puffy eye bags and the dry skin that makes you look older you need to get enough “beauty sleep”.
8. Use products with moisturizing ingredients
Skin appearance is strictly related to water retention. As time goes by, skin becomes thinner, the face starts to crease and you look aged because it retains less water and its collagen and elastin content decreases. Nourishing your skin with healthy foods like salmon and other fatty fish is important, but you really need products with moisturizing ingredients like Ngi grass which is grows in Fiji. Pure Fiji’s Hydrating Multi Active Day Creme boosts hydration by increasing cellular water flow as well as moisture holding power for 24 hours.
9. Sleep on your back
Do you remember the last time you woke up one morning and noticed the lines on your face because you slept on your tummy or on your sides? Well those “sleep wrinkles” can be easily avoided if you sleep on your back.
10. Shower right after your workout
Skipping your shower will result into all that dirt and grime settling into your pores which could make them larger; a sure sign of aging. Wash your face twice a day with Pure Fiji’s Purifying Cleanser. This unique cleanser is loaded with pineapple and papaya extract designed to brighten the skin and gently removes aging skin cells.
11. Use products in the right order
You may have the greatest natural skin care products but if you’re not using them in the right order or you skip steps you can’t really expect to get great results. The way you take care of your skin day in and day out is a direct reflection on how your skin ages.
After cleansing, apply Pure Fiji’s Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream, followed by a hydrating serum, then finish off with your moisturizers. The last step in your skin care routine depends on the time of day: In the morning, finish with sunscreen. In the evening; finish with your night cream.
12. Use peptides to tighten slack neck skin
Look for products containing peptides, which can stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis. Pure Fiji’s Intense Day Creme contains Palmitoyl Oligopeptide – Palmitoyl Tetra Peptide-7 is designed to reduce wrinkles by stimulating collagen production. In clinical studies, it has shown to:
- increase overall collagen synthesis by up to 117%
- increase collagen IV synthesis by up to 327%
- increase synthesis by up to 267%
The outcome of the studies revealed that deep wrinkles were reduced by half. Smaller wrinkles and fine lines sometimes faded completely away. And what’s even better, every participant in the study showed noticeable improvement within two weeks. The result was fewer wrinkles and younger looking skin.
More isn’t always better when it comes to aging. In fact, being too aggressive with your skin can make you more susceptible to wrinkles. By arming yourself with Pure Fiji’s natural skin care products from the Fiji Islands; which are designed to help slow down the aging process coupled with making smart lifestyle choices you can erase years from your face.
