Having a skin free of wrinkles involves combining both a good lifestyle, and some helpful products. If you follow these tips below, you will be able to maintain wrinkle free skin for many years!
Keep your skin clean and hydrated
Wash your skin twice a day, preferably with warm water, to keep it free from oil, dirt, and grime. Try to use mild, gel-based cleansers, especially if it’s very hot outside. Use an alcohol-free toner and a light moisturizer to keep your skin moist and supple.
Once a week do some exfoliation to remove dead cells and then use a mask to soak moisture deep into your skin.
Increase hydration with fluids
Drink lots of water, tea, and other herbal drinks to give your skin the hydration it needs from within, to retain moisture outside. This will prevent your skin from being dry and
Touch your face in circular motions
Whenever you clean or moisturise your skin, move your hands on your face in an upward and outer manner. This will keep your skin elastic and less prone to wrinkles.
Use sunscreen with PA++++ protection.
Harmful sun rays like UVA and UVB can increase your skin age by up to 10 years! Use a powerful sunscreen to protect your skin against the sun. Remember, SPF only helps in keeping the skin bright. You need UVA and UVB protection to prevent your skin from aging rapidly.
Live a healthy lifestyle
Try to eat well, exercise, and avoid alcohol and smoking. Eat foods high in antioxidants, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Omega-e fatty acids. Healthy foods include fish, blueberries, green tea, and all kinds of vegetables. Particularly, avoid foods high in sugar, as it can cause glycation, i.e., a process that damages your skin elasticity, making it look older.
Use anti-aging products
You can use both organic and synthetic creams. They both have their own benefits. In chemical products, try to use products with:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Folic acid
- Salicylic acid (for oily skin)
- Vitamin A
Try to use alcohol and fragrance free products as much as possible. Remember, do not wait to start taking care of your skin after you are older. Start early, and maintain the routines, so even when you enter your 40s and 50s, you will still have healthy, youthful-looking skin.
