Aging is a natural process that we have little control of. But unlike your age, it is much easier to defy the signs of skin aging and ensure that your skin looks bright, healthy and radiant even when you are on the other side of the age-meter.
Skin care doesn’t have to be complicated either! With some healthy skin care practices and professional skin care products and cosmetics, you can achieve a healthier and younger looking complexion in no time at all.
Here are 3 basic rules to maintain the health of your skin and ensure that it stays young for a long time to come:
Cleanse in the Morning as well as Night!
While women don’t forget to cleanse their face in the morning, many don’t practice the same ritual at night before going to bed! This habit can not only deteriorate your skin, but also speed the aging of the skin in the long run. This is because all the dirt, excess oil and make-up particles that your skin has been subjected to through the day gets accumulated within the skin pores and clogs them. This further irritates the skin and gives rise to acne and blemishes and ruins the texture of your skin.
Stick with your SPF!
Sun damage is the prime cause of skin aging and the development of wrinkles and age spots. The UV rays of the sun creep within the skin cells and cause internal damage. While the damage may show outside as sunburns, it can also trigger chances of skin cancer! So there are no ignoring sunscreens. No matter what time of year or weather conditions, make sure you use a broad spectrum sunscreen that shields your skin against both UVB and UVA rays of the sun.
Apply Anti Aging Treatments
The skin care industry offers a whole range of products containing specialized ingredients such as retinoids, antioxidants, peptides, niacinamide, glycolic acid that not only provide anti aging benefits but also rejuvenate your skin.
You just need to choose one that targets your problem areas and contains ingredients that will benefit your skin type.
