Many people wait until the first signs of aging start to appear before they start to do anything about it.
You may have heard the term “prevention is better than cure” and this is very true in terms of your skin. Treating lines and wrinkles is not impossible, but it’s going to take a lot more time and effort than if you were using the right products and following important tips to prevent them in the first place.
Okay, so aging is inevitable and unless you have a face full of botox you are going to see fine lines and wrinkles appear as you head into your 30s and beyond. But wouldn’t you rather see fine lines that are easy to deal with rather than deep lines that simply make you look older than you really are and are much harder to fade away?
There’s no better time than now to start, so even if you’re in your twenties with no signs of aging having yet made their mark, we encourage you to follow our advice to ensure your skin ages beautifully and gracefully. You’ll thank us, we promise!
Your twenties is the ideal time to start using a retinol cream as it helps to exfoliate your skin on a deeper level, leaving your skin glowing and fading away fine lines.
Retinol is a vitamin A compound and a powerful antioxidant for your skin. Retinol helps to promote the production of new cells, increase the skin’s resilience, smooth fine lines and wrinkles and even fade dark spots as a result of hyperpigmentation from sun exposure and hormonal changes or scars from blemishes.
Just be sure you check the label and make sure you are using an all natural product that isn’t packed with synthetic filler ingredients that your skin definitely doesn’t need.
We cannot say enough about the importance of wearing sunscreen everyday to help protect your skin against the harmful and highly damaging uv rays of the sun.
The sun truly is the skin’s worst enemy. Sure, you may love your golden bronze glow, but without sufficient protection or overexposure, you can be sure to see damage turn up years later in the form of sunspots, lines and wrinkles. Not to mention, it drastically increases your risk of skin cancer.
Be sure to slather on an SPF of at least 30 everytime you will be outdoors. Your face, your ears, your neck and your hands are common areas people forget about.
This may come as a shock, but that daily sweet latte is doing your skin no favors!
Sugar is just one food that is terrible for your skin and actually contributes to aging skin by breaking down collagen in the skin. Here’s a few more foods we highly recommend you stay far away from!
Instead, fill your diet with whole, natural fruits, vegetables, oily fish, nuts and seeds and just watch your skin flourish from the inside out!
These are just 3 ways you can protect your skin against the effects of aging and you really won’t believe the difference!
