Life is so hectic. Taking time out of the day to follow a skincare routine may sometimes feel as if it’s out of reach for all of us. But following these simple seven steps will offer women at any age beautiful skin for many, many years.
Although a day spa visit may frequently pop up on your calendar, it’s still super critical to follow these tips – with them, they’ll offer excellent results.
Step 1: Wear Sunscreen
Let wearing daily sunscreen, even on overcast days, become second nature to you. The sunscreen of today isn’t thick and greasy like years ago. Now, advanced sunscreen technology is featherweight and silky. An example of this is a product from La Roche Posay. An oil-free formula, La Roche Posay Anthelios SPF 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid, goes on sheer. Packed with antioxidants, it’s also water resistant.
Moisturizers, including tinted moisturizers, may also have a SPF shield from the sun. Shoppers can find this in products such as Intellishade SPF 45 Matte Tinted Moisturizer by Revision Skincare.
Not using a solar defense leads to premature skin aging. Signs of wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and uneven skin tone will creep up sooner than later. Using sunscreen on a regular basis will slow down the skin aging process.
The sun is most powerful between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. If possible, try to retreat indoors throughout this timeframe to give your skin a break.
And don’t forget to double check that the sunscreen you’re lathering on hasn’t expired. If it has, it won’t offer the ultimate skin protection you need.
And above all, purchase a broad spectrum sunscreen. Reapply it every few hours, and more so, if you’ve been swimming or perspiring.
Step 2: Treat Skin with Care
Facial skin is delicate. Here are some tips to be mindful of, such as:
• Limit your time in hot water to avoid dehydration
• Don’t tug or pull on your skin (especially around your eyes) when cleaning or removing makeup.
• Pat skin dry and leave skin slightly damp for rehydration
And when it comes to cleansing, pick a non-soap cleanser to avoid facial dryness.
Step 3: Toss out the cigarettes
Smoking can accelerate skin damage. It slows down blood flow in the skin, steals oxygen from it, and robs it from its nutrients. Over time, smoking creates dull skin and deep wrinkles begin to set around the mouth and eyes.
Step 4: Alcohol Intake
Although it may be nice to kick up your heels with a glass of wine after a day of hard work, keep track of what’s consumed. Alcohol dehydrates the skin and gives it a rough texture. So if a young looking appearance is your goal, reduce the alcohol intake.
Step 5: Moisturize
Mature skin becomes dry and really needs a moisturizer to pump up fine lines. A good moisturizer adds water back into the skin. Thumbing through a moisturizer inventory, you’re bound to find an array of them with antioxidant features and anti-aging rich properties. In addition to a hydrating boost, the nuances to these different formulas are just endless.
Kinerase products offer a nice line of moisturizers. During the day, users reach for Kinerase Ultimate Day Moisturizer, while in the evening, they apply Kinerase Ultimate Night Moisturizer. Both improve skin texture and offer excellent treatment for hydration.
And please don’t limit a moisturizer just to your face. From head to toe, the whole body needs attention, too. Areas to pay close attention to are the neck, chest, and elbows.
Avoid using a body moisturizer on the face – it’ll be too rough and harsh.
Step 6: Eating Healthy and Sleeping Well
It’s easy to say but hard to do. It can’t be ignored that a balanced and nutritious diet benefits your whole body from the inside out. Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains will do wonders for the skin.
And a good night’s rest leaves skin with an unmistakable youthful glow – you’ve probably discovered that before on your own.
Step 7: Implement a Skin Care Regimen
A skincare routine is the best way to look and feel young. As skin matures, though, different products and regimens may need to be tweaked to gain maximum benefits.
When starting a new skin care system, all is well the first few weeks, and then sometimes the interest begins to fade for many of us after that. Please don’t stray and stick with the regimen.
Working alongside your skincare professional will keep you on track so you can reap the full rewards to more beautiful skin.
