Fountain of Youth: Anti-Aging Tips for your Skin
You're only as old as you feel is a common phrase used predominantly by two groups of people: people who actually feel that way, and those who don't (but truly wish they did). How you feel is dependent on many things that could be happening in your life, but ultimately you are always in control. The same can be said about your skin too.
Staying hydrated, cleansing and exfoliating the skin on a regular basis are usually regarded as some of the top ways to keep the skin looking it's best, but to keep your skin looking as youthful as possible there are some other things which are recommended:
"Stock up on Retinoid Products
Retinol has anti-aging properties, and is a chemical and a fat-soluble derivative of vitamin A. It balances the growth process of epithelial cells, which form the uppermost layer of cells beneath the skin. Retinoids stimulate new growth of skin, prevent the breakdown of collagen (which is responsible for skin smoothness and elasticity), and is one of the best anti-aging products.
Invest in the Best Eye Cream You Can Afford
No matter how much you spend on moisturizers, night creams, or serums, it’s essential to buy a separate under-eye cream. The eye area is extremely sensitive, and treating it with the same products which are designed for the skin and body, is a big no-no. Invest in a good one and use it preferably before bedtime.
Use a Good Moisturizer
Choose a good moisturizer. One with SPF will prevent damage that occurs due to UV rays, to a certain extent, and also keep your skin hydrated. For dry skin, a moisturizer with peptides and natural oils will make the skin look smoother and fresher. Thus, choose the right moisturizer for your skin type and use it religiously. Oily skin also needs good moisturizing; look for moisturizers with protein and vitamin E."
Before you move forward with purchasing and applying any product to your face the best first step is to have your skin professionally assessed. By doing so you'll be able to get suggestions on the best products to use for your particular skin type in order to yield the best results.
