How To Look Younger For Longer

 How To Look Younger For Longer

One thing that everyone wants, is to stay looking as young as they can, for as long as they can. As soon as we reach a certain age, we are constantly looking for the next best thing to keep our skin firm and plump, while banishing the wrinkles away. But one thing that is important for everyone to know, is that it starts while you’re young. Most people only get into action when they see a faint line on their forehead, or notice them creases when they smile. But the actual trick to keep your skin looking fabulous, is to start out as young as you possibly can, and keep up a healthy skincare routine for the rest of your life.

 

Here’s what you need to do that.

 

Creams

There are so many different creams out there on the market that all claim to work their magical powers – and while many people have their different opinions and favourites, one of the most talked about, is retinol. You can find a lot more information about this product on retinol.com, but it is essentially a vitamin that slows down the skin’s process of antiagening, leaving you with a smoother skin all round. This is a magical potion that dermatologists rant about often, because one thing we know for sure, is that it really does work.

 

Exfoliators

Our skin has a lot of layers to it, and over a period of time, the top layer of skin dries and dies. But without the right help, all those dead skin cells will continue to build up and clog your pores, and that then causes blockage because you’re skin can no longer breathe, which leads to oily and spotty skin. So in order to shift all of that old skin, is to exfoliate. When washing your face, it’s important to find a good exfoliating scrub that will remove all of that build it so your skin is left with a new fresh layer.

 

SPF

This overrules moisturiser, and everyone needs to know that. One of the biggest misconceived ideas is that moisturiser is essential to keep your skin soft. And sure, while it may feel silky smooth, you’re just blocking out your natural minerals and cells that create moisture, so they stop, and you are then dependent on the lotion you’re applying. So stop it, and allow your amazing body to do what it was programmed to do. Instead, apply SPF (sun cream) every day. Even in the winter. Even when it’s raining. Even when it’s night time. This will protect you from any harmful rays that damage your skin, whether that be from the sun or your computer screen as https://www.fda.gov explains. So start doing this every day for the rest of your life.

 

Now you know what products you need to add to your beauty bag – get buying. It’s always good to do your own research before you truly make up your mind though, so by all means, have a read up online, or better yet – make an appointment with a professional dermatologist for the best advice.
