Creating Your Very Own Anti-Aging Skincare Routine

Are you over 25? Sadly, this means your skin is now aging, and you will want to start to take better care of it. You should already be familiar with the world of sunscreen and acne medications, but there are other preventative methods you can employ if you are not yet in your forties. Sunscreen should have always been a part of your morning routine, but it alone is not enough. There are still other things you should do to create a routine that works and that you can stick to. 

If your face is starting to show a few lines and perhaps a slight sag, it might be good to start looking into wrinkle creams, serums, and other anti-aging products. Adding these to your typical, standard face and neck care can help, but sometimes you will need to change your routine completely to see the desired results. It is always a good idea to practice healthy skin care habits.

Having Healthy Skin

Maintaining a good skin care routine can lead to healthier-looking skin. Healthy skin can mean different things to different people, but from a general perspective, keeping your skin healthy will slow down aging. Having youthful skin means that your complexion is not blotchy, but rather bright, your face is firmer and supple rather than leathery, fine lines and wrinkles are minimal, and you are at a reduced risk of skin cancer. You will want to create a good anti-aging plan in order to reap these benefits. If you have yet to see aging symptoms, start now and your future self will thank you!

Holy Grail: Sunscreen

Protecting your skin from the sun is crucial as sun damage can lead to uneven coloring, sun spots, wrinkles, and fine lines in your face. Sunscreen is the foundation for healthier skin. The sun will age you prematurely and will affect your skin in many ways beneath the surface. Try to stay in the shade as much as possible between 10 a.m. and noon. Cover up by wearing hats that will protect your face from strong rays. Wear long sleeves to prevent sun spots on your arms. Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes and the sensitive skin around it. Another thing that must be mentioned is tanning. Although we understand that we want to show off our beach bodies with a nice tan, tanning beds or laying out in the sun can actually be really harmful. You are exposing yourself to harmful ultraviolet rays that will not only age your skin but can lead to cancer.

As we age, our skin becomes drier and thinner, causing more fine lines and wrinkles. Moisturising can help trap water into our skin so that we look fresher and more youthful. Applying face moisturizer as well as a moisturizer for your body with some lip balm is the ultimate way to feel completely fresh and hydrated.

Daily Cleansing
Washing away the dirt on your face twice a day is crucial. You will want to wash with warm water and a mild cleanser. Cleanse the dirt away rather than scrubbing your skin. And please don't go to bed with your make-up on!

What you eat will really dictate a lot of things. Making sure you get a healthy diet with enough nutrients, calories, minerals, and vitamins will definitely yield results for your skin. Getting plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and healthy fats will have an effect on your skin chemistry. If you are a smoker, this will show on your face as well. The toxins in tobacco can make a smoker's face look dull and dry. Among other things that will affect your skin is sleep. Your body needs rest to replenish itself. While you sleep your body's natural rhythm (circadian rhythm) has the best opportunity to ensure growth of healthy skin cells than can proliferate. Refresh yourself with a good night's sleep!
