Is Maturing Gracefully All About Genetics?

Most of you believe that maturing/aging gracefully is genetic and that's true for a lot of you. But some of the important factors in aging gracefully will include what you eat and how you nourish your body, so your diet is important.

Exercise and sunscreens also play a very important role in warding off the signs of aging.

According to research that was done recently by Mintel (which is a research company)
  • 69% of you believed that how you aged was mostly genetic


  • 8 out of 10 of you said that diet and exercise are very important factors associated with how your skin ages


  • 78% of you believed that using sunscreens is the real key in preventing signs of aging
Has anyone ever included you in one of his or her surveys? I had to ask.

Is How Your Food is Grown Also Important?

Well if we digress and talk about what you eat, not only is what's being eaten important for the health of your beautiful black skin, how it's grown is just as important.

A lot of the soil that food is grown in at this point is not nourished properly. And you've got chem trails falling on all of the foliage.

So from above and from below, your food is being attacked so to speak, from the elements and from the soils.

So within nutrition and diet you've got a whole new wave of thinking and being in organic gardening and organic farms.

The way the fertilizers are put together with certain elements or compositions is done a certain way. So, you've got the soil being nourished so that the food that's planted in the soil gets certain vitamins and minerals and when you consume it, you're benefiting and your body and skin are benefiting also.

Not only is it important that you eat a certain food but the way the food is grown is equally important.

  The Sun, Sunscreens and African American Skin

With sunscreens, they are just as important with African American skin as with any other group.

But you must understand that certain manufacturers don't always have the best components when it comes to sunscreens for ethnic skin.

For a lot of you it has burned your skin more than it has helped or prevented damage.

Typically a 15 to 30 SPF (sun protection factor) would be considered good enough for melanated skin.

But one of the things you might want to take into consideration is, if you can function within a given day without having to be in the sun at it's highest peak in the sky, don't.

You'll be helping to ward off a lot of the sun damage that you would typically receive if you have to be out in the sun.

So early mornings are good times to move around and run errands. From 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. is when the sun is at its highest/hottest point.

That's when you're going to get the greatest onslaught of its rays. If you find that your schedule doesn't permit you to stay inside during those times and you must be out, then by all means a good sunscreen is important.

If you're out in the water you'll have to reapply your sunscreen every 20 to 30 minutes.

But if you're just out and about moving around running errands wear a hat. It will help to shield your face from a lot of the sun that you'll encounter when you're out during this time of the day.

If you're driving make sure you're applying your sunscreen to the exposed arm that's on the driver side.

  Finding Balance Between Topical African American Skin Care Products and Nutrition

Now a lot more of you understand that there has to be a balance when it comes to skin care. Not only are you going to get results from using products topically, you're also going to get results from how you feed yourself internally.

You've got to nourish your skin from within with the proper foods; your green foods (kale, spinach, broccoli) and fiber (apples, nuts, berries) just to name a few.

There should never be a time when your skin is not taken care of. Ever! Whether it's your face or your body, your skin needs care.

As you mature a lot of the oils in your body start to dissipate so you're looking at skin that's going to become more dry and there's nothing like a good exfoliating treatment to remove dead skin cells.

You then add moisturizers to enhance your natural beauty and you'll be surprised at how wonderful your skin will look after a great exfoliation treatment.

Finally ...

As an African American who's looking at prevention when it comes to anti-aging or maintaining and nourishing your skin, a good topical product with natural ingredients and a great nutritional program is going to be a good way to keep your skin beautiful and glowing.
