Most of us are looking for ways to appear younger. The key to youthful-looking skin may be as close as your medicine cabinet. The proper skincare products can make a huge difference in your complexion and help you avoid lines, wrinkles, and additional signs of aging.
Use a Gentle Facial Cleanser
Use a gentle formula and touch when you cleanse your skin. The skin tends to become less oily and more sensitive, says Dr. Maria Tetelbaum - “So even if you still get adult acne breakouts, you may want to use a more gentle face wash instead of a drying acne wash.”
As we age, skin loses collagen, the protein that’s responsible for keeping it looking lifted and smooth. The loss can make the skin look creased. It’s time for retinoids— the prescription-strength version of vitamin A. You can start using retinoids for anti-aging as early as your thirties, and Synergy Center offers pharmaceutical grade skin care products available for all skin types and conditions.
Use a Richer Face Cream
Due to the fact the oil glands becomes less active as we get older, it is very important to moisturize properly to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Substitute your normal face cream for a richer one to help trap water against the skin. It will plump any deep crevices. Don’t forget to use the cream on your neck and decollete [ upper torso ] too!
Your skin usually reflects what you put into your body. Make sure to get plenty of Omega 3‘s, 6‘s and 9‘s. This will give you plenty of moisture. Vitamin A is excellent for regeneration– you can get it from avocado, spinach, kale, and more.
Omega-3s that are found in some seafood, such as salmon, can help maintain the skin’s moisture and might even delay its maturing process by keeping wrinkles at bay. If you’re not into eating meat, try flaxseed oil supplements or fish oil. This will keep your skin supple by replenishing your skin’s own lipids [or oils], which diminish with time. It’s also anti-inflammatory if you suffer from adult acne. However it is recommended to check with your doctor before you take any supplements.
Exfoliate at least Once a Week
Everybody wants perfect skin. We desire that dewy, silky, supple, and youthful glow. Our skin sheds dead cells regularly, and creates a new layer every 28 days. However, over time that process can slow down and lead to a complexion that looks dull with rough patches. Exfoliate weekly to help remove that buildup and have skin that is more bright, glowing, and youthful.
Be sure to drink at least eight glasses of water a day. Water is what hydrates your skin and keeps it looking dewy and supple. It also keeps your skin blemish-free by flushing out impurities.
Don’t Skip Your Facial Routine
If you are pressed for time it may be a hassle to moisturize and wash your face everyday. But remember that taking care of your skin will pay off. You can have that glow that you desperately want. If you go to bed with makeup on and it will only clog your pores, so make sure to remove it first.
Remember not to skip this step even if you have oily skin. Just be sure to find a moisturizer that is made for your skin type with SPF 30.
