Simple anti-aging hacks to add to your daily routine
Signs of aging begin to appear and become more visible with time. This is one of the biggest worries for women as visible signs begin to show at a very young age. Include these tips in your everyday skin care routine for healthier skin.
Use a gentle cleanser every night to take off all the makeup and the oils, dust and other pollutants that accumulate over time. The cleanser cleans the pores and makes it easier for other skin care products to penetrate into your skin. It is important to ensure the cleanser is mild and not harsh to prevent dehydration and damage.
With age, the natural replenishing action of skin slows down and the dead skin cells are not replaced by fresh ones immediately. This causing uneven skin tone, dullness and cracking of skin. Using an exfoliator can help get rid of dead cells and give younger, brighter looking skin. Opt for softer exfoliators like activated charcoal sponges rather than using tougher physical exfoliants like sugar scrubs that increase chances of skin sagging. You can try chemical ones too like glycolic or lactic acid which are commonly for in many skin care products.
Look out for anti-aging serums that boost Vitamin A, C and collagen levels of the skin as these slow down skin aging, its visible signs and their antioxidant properties soak in the oxidative stress build up caused by both biological and environmental factors. It is important to pat the serum onto the skin and not rub it.
Using a moisturiser daily is extremely important and beneficial. It keeps the skin hydrated and prevents drying. Hydration also prevents fine lines from appearing. A moisturiser that contains glycerine works great and Vaseline at night to prevent evaporation works great.
The sun’s UV rays has many harmful effects on the skin because it causes visible signs of aging like thinning, wrinkles, sun spots and pigmentation. Everyday use of sunscreen say SPF 30 helps fade away wrinkles and age spots. It also improves skin texture and the skin’s regenerative ability. Apart from sunscreen, use protective clothing like long sleeves and hats to reduce exposure to harmful rays.
