Taxes and aging may be inevitable but at least, when it comes to your skin, there are anti-aging skin care tips that can help you prolong the inevitable.
In this post, we will go over 8 crucial anti-aging skin care tips you can start using well before your skin begins to age.
8 anti-aging skin care tips
Use a gentler cleanser
We advocate cleansing your face as part of your daily routine. It is however important to note that as we grow older, our skin does not produce the same level of oils like it did when we were younger.
This why dry skin is common in older people.
Thus, it is important to use a gentler cleanser that doesn’t dry your skin out.
Apply moisturizer everyday
Lock in the freshness of cleaning your face with a moisturizer everyday.
Use moisturizing lotions all throughout the daily to keep your skin looking young and healthy.
You should always research products that are marketed as “anti-aging” moisturizers before you buy and use them.
Moisturizers and creams that contain retinol and collagen are helpful in slowing aging.
Drink more water
Drinking more water is good for you regardless of your age.
For older people who more readily experience dry skin, drinking more water is key to keeping your skin moisturized and supple.
Eat foods that support skin health
Again, this is a tip that is helpful regardless of your age.
But it becomes even more important as we grow older.
Foods that contain vitamin C are great for your skin. Vitamin C is powerful when it comes to wound healing and the repair of your skin. Thus, upping your Vitamin C intake is helpful if you want your skin to keep looking young.
Foods rich in Vitamin A also support anti-aging.
Broccoli, avocadoes, oily fish and sunflower seeds are all foods that are helpful in keeping your skin healthy.
Stay out of the sun
If you are going to be in the sun, make sure you use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15.
Otherwise, it is best if you can stay out of the sun as much as possible.
Smoking has its’ share of perils. One of those is how it affects your skin.
It is common to notice the following if you smoke:
- Leathery skin
- Dry skin
- Dull complexion
- Premature lines and wrinkles
So you can add healthy skin as another perk of quitting smoking.
Get enough sleep
Getting enough sleep is healthy for your skin because during sleep, your body is able to repair and renew itself.
Give yourself the gift of sleep and slow down aging skin.
Visit your dermatologist
Your dermatologist is medically-trained to diagnose skin illnesses.
The earlier they can diagnose and treat you, the more likely a problem will not get out of hand.
This is why visiting a dermatologist regularly is important when it comes to healthy and younger-looking skin.
Usually, the misconception is that going to see a dermatologist is expensive.
What many people don’t know however, is that your health insurance plan is likely to cover most expenses when it comes to dermatology care.
So, do yourself a favor and pay your dermatologist a visit.
