If you feel like you’ve added so much products in your regimen these past few years and only beginning to realize you might not really need every bottle in your stash, below is a list to help you declutter.
5 Tips for unmistakably younger looking skin
Stop wondering whether or not you really needed that skin brightening cream or Vitamin C serum. Get down to the basics of obtaining younger looking skin with the only 5 tips you need to keep your skin’s health and vitality:
Tip No. 1: Stop binging on sweets. Unrefined sugars? Artificial sweeteners? Stop looking for labels that read “less sugar”. Instead, choose carefully which ones you should be munching on. Too much sugars in the body slows down your metabolism and also lead to the accumulation of advanced glycation end-products, appropriately abbreviated as AGEs. Collagen dramatically declines due to the growing inability of cellular processes to occur as a result of the cell paralyzing effect of AGEs.
Tip No. 2: Load up with antioxidants. Get these powerful skin protectors through your diet and via topical solutions. Eat plenty of live food or uncooked veggies and fruits. Trade your cup of coffee for a cup of tea, and cap the night with a glass of red wine. For antioxidants in your daytime and nighttime creams, Vitamins B3, C and E have been found to be the most pervasive, capable of reaching the depths of your skin where protection and healing are most needed.
Tip No. 3: Keep your sun exposure to the bare minimum. While sunscreens are a must, no amount of SPF nor any sun protection product is capable of giving your skin 100% protection from the sun. Make sure you are using safe sun protection too.
Tip No. 4: Take advantage of what skincare science has to offer. There is no shortage of beauty products to care for your skin but, it takes a trained eye to spot the ones that can deliver and address your skin issues. Subscribe to a skin brightening cream for your age spots, wrinkle cream for your wrinkles, or serum for added skin nutrition. Whichever product you choose, pick up only the ones that your skin absolutely needs.
Tip No. 5: Like it or not — Exercise! It’s the only way you can get your system to function optimally. Your skin needs to strike the right balance of nutrients and beat the effects of senescence, or the natural body aging process characterized by the gradual loss of energy at the cellular level. With healthy circulation, your skin is able to produce collagen and all the required substances for skin repair and rejuvenation to happen quickly and effectively.
What this ultimate list proves is that it takes a lifestyle change for you to experience beauty that defies your age. Beauty can be inexpensive. It was never about the price tag your wrinkle cream carries after all!
