While some of us may wish we could be 25 forever, the clock keeps on ticking! And the good news is there are plenty of ways to continue to look younger even as we get older year after year. Here are 4 simple ways to fight back the signs of aging:
Keep Your Face Clean
Having a clean face is important to maintaining a youthful look. Over time, a dirty face can clog pores and weigh heavily on your skin, having a cumulative effect over time. Clean your face every morning when you get up and every night before you go to bed. Cleaning your face is one of the easiest and most inexpensive things you can do to take care of your skin. This routine will prove its worth over time as you defy the aging process.
If this applies to you, then you’re probably tired of hearing it, however, you can add one more reason to stop… as smoking badly ages your skin. If you’re serious about keeping a youthful appearance, then this is a definite priority. You’ll not only keep your youthful appearance, but will enjoy all the other benefits of a smoke-free life.
Staying properly hydrated helps your body work the way it’s supposed to which includes maintaining a healthy complexion. Hydrating means drinking plenty of water, but it also means staying away from diuretics such as caffeine and alcohol that can drain your system of moisture. Again, this is a suggestion that can fall under the category of “no fun,” but important if you want to maintain your vibrant look.
Better Makeup Products
Makeup is great at giving a more youthful look, but be careful which products you use. The very thing you’re using to try and look younger could be a prominent cause of your premature aging. Many makeups can cause dryness, irritate the skin, and accentuate pores. These are definitely not the effects your makeup should be having on your skin. Your makeup should give you a great look, but also take care of your skin’s natural beauty. Sticking with high-quality products that avoid certain ingredients such as talc, corn starch and parabens will give you the desired look while also preserving your beautiful skin.
All simple steps that are easy enough to take and can have huge benefits to your gorgeous, age-defying skin!
As an aesthetician, I needed skincare and makeup for my clients to apply after invasive procedures that would not harm their skin, yet would help correct and protect while healing. That’s how VirginN Pure Mineral Makeup and Bioactive Skincare began. I love working with women and seeing their eyes light up when we make them look more amazing than what they ever thought was possible.
