While you can’t turn back the hands of time, there are some anti-aging skin care tips that can help you keep your skin smoother and younger looking.
Below are 3 anti-aging skin care tips:
Find the Right Cleanser for Your Skin Type
Cleansing is a mundane task, but it is the backbone of a great skincare regime. The trick is finding the right cleanser that washes without stripping your skin.
Foam cleansers: Good for oily skin types or those prone to breakouts.
Oil cleansers: If your skin is feeling try, it’s worth swapping your evening cleanser for an oil-based one. They’re great for taking face make-up off too.
Cream cleansers: These work on all skin types, but for a deeper cleanse employ a muslin cloth to remove it. Source: Telegraph
Wear Sunscreen Everyday
Don’t assume you’re inoculated against photo damage just because the sun is barely up when you leave for work and sets on your commute home. Unlike UVB light, UVA rays travel through windows in the office, home, and car, warns Dover. Until recently, few worried much about the latter wavelength, partly because it causes a tenth as much tanning as the former. But in fact, “two very important studies a few years ago showed that UVA is carcinogenic and induces the grayish, yellow-y cast you see on older people’s skin,” says Dover, who recalls one laser-resurfacing patient whose wrinkling was “five times worse on one side” from years of daily drives between New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Those who don’t spend most of their waking hours in a cinder-block bunker should “wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen 365 days a year, rain or shine,” he says. Source: Allure
Get Your Beauty Sleep
To stay looking young for years, get 7 to 8 hours of beauty sleep daily without fail. In fact, sleep is considered the most powerful rejuvenating treatment to maintain youthfulness.
When you sleep, adrenaline and corticosteroid levels drop and the body starts to produce growth hormone. During this time, the repair and growth process of cells occurs. If you don’t get enough sleep, this function is impaired and leads to inflammation that causes many signs of aging like wrinkles, dull complexion and fines lines.
A good night’s sleep also has many health benefits like better memory, mood, attention and concentration as well as a reduced risk of heart attack and stroke.
To improve your sleep, maintain a regular bedtime, avoid caffeinated beverages before bedtime, take a warm bath with a few drops of aromatherapy oil in the evening, and sleep on the right mattress and pillows. Source: Top10HomeRemedies
