This post applies to both early birds and late comers. Yes, you’re never too young nor too old to start taking care of your skin. For the young ones, just follow this basic routine as early as now and you will be fighting off wrinkles way after the age when most women already start discovering wrinkles on their faces. For the young-at-hearts, stop beating yourself up for not taking care of your skin before. Just focus on what you can do now. This basic routine may not totally rid you of wrinkles but at least, it’ll prevent your problem from getting worse.
Sunscreen Lotion is Not Just for the Beach
Yes, it’s not just for the beach. Grab those sunscreens now and apply them daily. Re-apply if you have to anytime within the day especially if you feel you’ve sweated most of it out. Be sure to use broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects you from both UVA and UVB rays. These ultraviolet rays are said to cause wrinkles, age spots and dry skin so make sure to protect your skin from both. Doctors recommend sunscreen with Sun Protection Factor of at least 30.
Even if you have oily skin, you still have to moisturize. A dry skin aggravates the appearance of fine lines so I’m sure you wouldn’t want that. Go for natural mositurizers to prevent chemicals that may worsen your wrinkle problems. Argan oil is a great example of a skin product that’s all natural and organic. It even has a culinary version that you can eat. That’s how safe it is. This miracle oil from Morocco is packed with essential oils and minerals that moisturize skin and fight off wrinkles. Argan oil is loaded with antioxidants as well to help protect the skin from environmental damage. Argan oil is also packed with nutrients that cause skin cells to regenerate. So better use this oil on your skin daily if you want to get a more youthful skin!
Moisturisers with Green Tea or Copper Peptiddes
You can also opt for moisturizers with green tea extracts. These are common in most anti-wrinkle creams since these are said to have anti-inflammatory properties that are good for the skin. Like the oil from Morocco, green tea extracts are said to have antioxidants that help protect the skin from the harsh effects of free radicals.
There are also products with copper peptides that you can use. Copper when combined with protein fragments called peptides is said to be good for collagen production. Collagen helps in repairing and rejuvenating skin tissue.
No matter how much you moisturize, skin cells get damaged by a number of factors that are beyond our control. To facilitate faster cell regeneration, its best to exfoliate regularly to remove the outer layer of your dead skin. Oats are great natural exfoliants that you can use. Don’t over exfoliate though so as not to damage your skin.
