Beauty therapy today is strongly focused on winkle reduction and for good reason. The fashion today is to look as young as possible. After all, 50 is the new 30 and that is what we want our faces and bodies to show as well. Unfortunately, Father Time doesn’t stand still, and once you reach 50, you definitely don’t look 30 anymore. While those wrinkles and fine lines didn’t appear overnight, they are there, and they need treating. Unfortunately, it is very different to feel young on the inside, when you look old on the outside.
Unfortunately, the reality is that, no matter what we try to do, wrinkles and lines start to appear. It is simply in our genes to grow old, and our skin is affected by that. However, regardless of whether you have been blessed with genes that age slowly or not, there are things that you can do to stay looking your very best for as long as possible. This includes following a number of tips to prevent wrinkles from appearing in the first place, and taking concentrated efforts to reduce them once they are there. Below are the four key tips to know about to help you staying looking as young as possible, for as long as possible.
4 Key Tips for Younger-Looking Skin
- Always protect your skin. While the sun gives us vitamin D, we do need to protect ourselves from it. This includes the winter sun, by the way. In fact, the UV rays from the winter sun are some of the most damaging of all, affecting the various connective proteins in the skin. The main cause of us looking old before our time is sun exposure, so avoid it.
- Exfoliate regularly. This means that you take the skin’s outer surface off, which is where there is an accumulation of dead skin cells. By exfoliating once a week, you make sure that your body does not put any unnecessary energy into dead skin cells, focusing instead on keeping your healthy skin looking younger. There are lots of different exfoliating products on the market, and you can even make them yourself!
- Focus on your nutrition. They say that you are what you eat, and this is true. Eat lots of deeply colored fruits and dark green vegetables to make sure you have the antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients you need for healthy skin and healthy blood flow.
- Only use anti-wrinkle treatment that you know is of high quality. If you use creams at home, make sure they contain vitamins A, C, and E as part of their first 10 ingredients. If you go for something more professional, such as Botox, make sure you only go to registered and licensed professionals.
There are lots of other things you can do to maintain a youthful looking skin, but these are the four most important ones. Implement them to see the difference they can make to how young you look. You can also look for tips to prevent wrinkles.
