Are you struggling with fine lines, dark spots, wrinkles, dryness, and sagging skin too? In that case, this article is the right place to be. We will be discussing aging skin and tips that will certainly help you keep your skin young, fresh and healthy!
Anti-aging is more often than not an issue that is prevalent among middle-aged women and men. However certain factors like the reduction of cell activity, lower collagen production, exposure to UV rays and slow regeneration of epidermis can be primary causes too. Moreover, genes, lifestyle, and environment lead to changes in the skin as well.
There are invasive as well as non-invasive ways to tackle anti-aging skin but trying non-invasive tips is always a better idea before one goes under the knife. Here are a few tips and tricks that can help you with aging skin.
Use A Gentle Cleanser
A good cleanser that is gentle and effective is essential in keeping your skin glowing. Cleansers remove makeup buildup, dirt, impurities, natural skin oil, pollutants, and bacteria that have clogged up over time. These add up and result in a dull complexion and also prevent anti-aging skin creams from working effectively.
For your skincare, choosing the right kind of cleanser should be on top of your list. Cleansers with low pH value work best and should be applied twice a day, every day for optimum results.
Using sunscreen is an absolute necessity if you’re looking to achieve glowing and bright skin. The UV rays cause the breaking down of collagen, which leads to fine lines, dark spots, wrinkles, and thinner skin. And no one wants any of that! The application should, of course, be on a daily basis. Any sunscreen that suits your skin and is over SPF 30 should be ideal.
Keep A Healthy Diet!
You are what you eat! And rightly so! While applying creams and cleansers is essential, what you eat is extremely important as well. Fill your daily dietary needs with fresh vegetables, fruits and cut down on sugar and other processed carbohydrates for healthier skin. Additionally, eating a decent amount of protein helps build collagen for your skin. One thing that absolutely needs to avoid is alcohol! It has to dehydrate properties that don’t just dehydrate your body but specifically your skin as well.
Exfoliate Every Week
Like we mentioned above, buildup makeup, dirt, and dead cells make your skin look dull and cause rough patches. To help remove this buildup and to ensure your skin looks fresh and healthy, you should exfoliate weekly.
You can either get a physical or chemical exfoliant. We recommend using chemical exfoliant since physical ones can be slightly harsher on your skin.
Using serum twice a day can help considerably with your skin. Most serums have ingredients like Vitamin C that keep your skin fresh, healthy and young. Preferred times of using a serum can be once in the day and once at night.
Sleeping patterns and routine matters a lot. More importantly, the way you sleep. Sleeping on your side or stomach can lead to wrinkles and fine lines. Additionally, using a silk pillow cover is especially useful since the fabric is soft and gentle.
It’s time to turn your sleep into your beauty sleep!
That’s right! Not only does smoking adversely affect your lungs and heart, but it also damages your skin. By aggravating the aging of the skin, it promotes wrinkles, stained teeth, increases psoriasis, and makes your skin dull.
These were some simple tips and habits that you can look into in order to reverse the aging process as far as your skin is concerned!
