Maintain youthful, healthy, and wrinkle-free skin at any age. In time, you’ll start to notice changes in how you look. Youthful, problem-free skin will yield to laugh lines and crow’s feet. Sun spots and dull skin replace a once radiant complexion. Stop watching skin age and bring it back to a healthy, age-defying appearance that will have everyone complimenting you.
Bring Back Collagen and Elasticity
Collagen provides structural support for skin and elastin keeps it resilient – both keep skin firm and tone. They also protect skin from developing fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Your body produces less collagen and elastin with age. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean the end for your complexion.
Products with Retinol (made from Vitamin A) build collagen and elastin in skin. You can find them in lotions and anti-wrinkle creams. They also prevent buildup of dead skin cells, minimize wrinkles, and lighten dark spots – all factors that make you look older than you are.
Exfoliate for an Ageless Complexion
Exfoliating keeps skin young by shedding dead skin cells and encouraging new ones to form. It improves the appearance of the skin and removes fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the renewal of skin cells. Exfoliating is important if you want a more vibrant, glowing complexion – and who wouldn’t want that?!
With age, skin loses its ability to naturally shed dead skin cells. They accumulate on the surface of the skin and cling to wrinkles, making them more obvious. It also creates the illusion you have a dull, lifeless complexion. Exfoliate once or twice a week to boost aging skin and stimulate cell turnover. The more cell reproduction there is, the more the body regenerates newer, younger healthier skin.
Hydrate For Younger Skin
Moisturize wrinkles away! A moisturizer is necessary to fight dryness and balance skin tone and texture. This gives your complexion a smooth, radiant, and younger look! Dry skin ages faster if it’s not well-hydrated. Not to mention that dry skin doesn’t feel the best either.
Moisturizers even out skin and plump it up to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Look for ones with antioxidants such as Vitamins A, C, and E. These vitamins are important in reversing the signs of sun damage, which will make anyone look younger.
Don’t Give Up On Products
You have been using a new anti-aging product for a week and you still don’t see results. Instead of tossing your product, give it time to work. It takes time (sometimes a month or even more) for newer, younger skin cells to make their way to the surface of your skin.
Finish the entire tube or bottle before deciding if it really works or not. Patience and time will eventually give way to a better complexion, and you’ll start to see a difference in texture, tone, and clarity.
Skipping Your Cleanser
Maintaining a young appearance starts with cleansing. Dirt and oil that build up on skin invade pores and cause complexion problems that add years to your looks. Keep skin healthy and young by making sure it’s clean. Wash your face twice a day – once in the morning, and once at night.
Depending on the needs of your skin, use a cleanser that works best with your skin type. A good cleanse starts with knowing your skin type. Is skin dry and sensitive? Look for a creamy cleanser that is alcohol-free. Is your complexion shiny? Consider matching skin with acidic cleansers that will break down oils in clogged pores.
Sensitive, delicate skin around the eyes is most susceptible to signs of aging. At a certain point in your life, you begin seeing the formation of crow’s feet, dark circles, and under-eye bags. Blame this on the loss of collagen and years of smiling and squinting. The best way to keep that area of skin looking young is to give it some TLC.
Use eye creams with antioxidants to protect the skin around your eyes from sun, dirt, and other free- radicals. Apply an eye cream with healthy, skin-strengthening antioxidants in the morning and use a retinoid product at night. Retinoids build collagen and minimize wrinkles. Products with silicone fill in fine lines around the eyes and smooth wrinkles. Now you can look others in the eyes with confidence.
Return skin to a younger appearance. Keep skin firm and tone using products that rebuild lost collagen and elastin. Exfoliate away old dead skin cells, which hinder the growth of newer younger skin cells. Use a moisturizer with antioxidants to reverse sun damage to keep skin looking healthy. Avoid ditching products before they have the chance to work and find a daily cleansing routine that will ward off bacteria-aging elements. Give extra care to the skin around your eyes. Before you know it, skin will look and feel younger!
