  1. Eat a well balanced diet that includes many and varied fruit and vegetable, preferably raw to provide your skin with the nutrients it needs.
  2. Drink at least 2 litres of water every day. Drink even when you don’t feel thirsty – your body needs plenty of water.
  3. Obtain fatty acids from cold pressed vegetable oils. Avoid saturated and animal fats.
  4. Do not smoke and avoid alcohol and caffeine. All of these substances dry out the skin, making it more vulnerable to wrinkling. In addition the smoking habit means pursing ones lips hundreds of times each day. The creases that form when you inhale form a cigarette often develop into wrinkles at a comparatively early age.
  5. Protect yourself from the sun. Always apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to all exposed areas of skin, regardless of the season of the weather.
  6. Get regular exercise. Like other organs of the body, skin gets its nourishment form the blood. Exercise increases the circulation of the blood to the skin. Products that stimulate microcirculation also increase blood flow to skin cells.
  7. Avoid alcohol based products as these dehydrate the skin, making it more vulnerable to wrinkling. This is the reason I ensured that all Organic Apoteke products are alcohol free.
  8. Avoid using harsh soaps which dehydrate the skin. They rob your skin of essential moisture which causes wrinkles. Use a liquid cream soap not solid creams or soaps as these contain hardened saturated fats that can go rancid rapidly and then create free radicals which cause premature wrinkling. Use an organic facial cleanser  which is moisturising and cleansing.
  9. Use on certified organic, anti-aging products and moisturisers that are able to penetrate into the dermal layer of the skin. It is in this layer that new cells are born. Ensuring the new skin cells are healthy is the only way to maintain younger looking skin.
  10. Use products high in natural peptide and amino acid complexes as these help rebuild collagen and elastin structures in the skin. Rasayana Rejuvenating Serum is an intense anti-aging serum that contains high percentages of natural amino acids and antioxidants.
