Are you looking for ways to keep your skin looking young? If so, you are not alone! Who doesn’t want to have flawless skin forever?! The secret to eternal youth has not been discovered…yet! 😉 But the great news is that there are plenty of ways you can help to keep your youthful glow for many years to come. Read on to find out…
Get Back to Basics
Everyone knows the basics for achieving beautiful skin, right? Getting plenty of sleep, (it’s called beauty sleep for a reason!), staying hydrated, and eating right are all things that you have probably been told many times.
Aim to eat foods that are rich in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory benefits, and stay hydrated by drinking enough water. Getting enough sleep is also crucial, not only will it help to reduce dark circles under the eyes and puffiness, but it will also give your skin the chance to get busy repairing itself.
We may know what we should be doing, but actually doing it is a different situation. Getting back to basics can have a positive impact on your skin, and you should see the results when you look in the mirror. It may not be very rock and roll, but why not give this new routine a try and see if you notice a positive difference? Here we go…
Sunscreen, Sunscreen, and More Sunscreen!
Just in case you missed the headline, here it is again… always wear sunscreen! Having the warmth of the sun on your skin is a great feeling, but without sunscreen to protect it, the sun could be causing damage to your skin, which is invisible to the eye. Unless you get sunburnt, damage to your skin is something that you won’t notice at the time, but instead, you could see the impact of sun damage all over your skin in the future. Patches of discoloration, lines, and wrinkles can all appear later on as a direct result of being out in the sun without protecting your skin. Slapping on some sunscreen is the best way to keep your skin healthy and looking young both now and in the future.
When you are out in the sun, don’t forget your sunglasses. Shades help to protect your eyes from sun damage, and can also help to protect the delicate skin around the eye area. Wearing sunglasses will not only help to protect this area from direct sun damage, but will also help to prevent wrinkling caused by squinting your eyes to see on sunny days.
Know Your Ingredients
When it comes to skincare, it is all too easy to get baffled by the scientific-sounding names that you see emblazoned on the packaging. One sure-fire way to choose the best skincare products to suit your skin is to familiarize yourself with the ingredients and the benefits that they offer. Once you know your stuff, choosing skincare products becomes SO much easier!
When you are shopping for anti aging cream skincare products, there are a few specific things to look out for on the ingredients list. First, you need to look for products that help to eradicate those pesky free radicals. Free radicals cause damage to the skin’s DNA, which speeds up the aging process. Look out for products that contain antioxidants, as these will help to protect your skin from free radical damage. However, it is worth pointing out that there are many varieties of antioxidants available, search for ingredients such as: idebenone, vitamin E, and Co-enzyme Q10.
Beware of Gimmicks
If something sounds way too good to be true, then the chances are that it absolutely is! As so many people crave younger-looking skin and are willing to go to extreme lengths to get it, there are, unfortunately, plenty of gimmicky products available. With the promise of younger-looking skin, many crazy products have been sold over the years to try and halt the aging process. Before you part with your money, it’s crucial to know whether the product will do what it says it will. Generally speaking, these so-called ‘miracle products’ rarely live up to their inflated promises and hefty price tags. Don’t be fooled! 😉
