No matter how old you are, you’re likely searching for the fountain of youth. While you can’t stop the natural process of aging, there are ways you can achieve youthful, beautiful skin. Skin that allows you to put your best face forward. Here are ten of our favorite anti-aging tips that are sure to make a positive difference in your skin.
1. Get Your Beauty Sleep
‘Beauty sleep’ is not a myth. Poor sleep quality can exacerbate signs of aging and make it harder for your skin to repair itself over time. Those who get 8 to 9 hours of sleep are likely to face less fine lines, pigmentation, and elasticity issues. So don’t overlook the importance of shut eye. Your skin will thank you.
2. Stay Hydrated
Do your best to drink at least 8 ounce glasses of water each day. By staying hydrated, you’ll be able to rejuvenate your skin and give it that soft, smooth feeling. Water and other healthy beverages will give it the moisture it requires to flush away toxins and transport nutrients to its cells. When your skin isn’t sufficiently hydrated, it can show as dry, dull, and flaking skin.
3. Stick to a Healthy Diet
A healthy diet can do more than help you maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other complications. Food such as leafy green veggies, colorful fruits, eggs, and fish can prompt the natural production of collagen, prevent acne breakouts, and give your skin a youthful glow.
4. Wear Sunscreen
Apply sunscreen to your face, neck, and decollete on a daily basis, even when it’s cloudy outside. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, an SPF of at least 30 is ideal as it can protect your skin from the harsh UVA and UVB rays. If you’ll be outside for quite some time, or are sweating/in the water frequently don’t forget to reapply your sunscreen every hour.
5. Quit Smoking
If you’re a smoker, do your best to quit. Smoking can expedite collagen breakdown and constrict blood vessels that nourish your skin with oxygen and nutrients. By ditching this bad habit, you can prevent thinning of the skin, premature aging, dryness, psoriasis, and even adult acne.
6. Follow a Skincare Routine
You can’t expect to wash your face and apply moisturizer every once in a while if you’d like to see results. It’s important that you adhere to a daily skincare routine every morning and evening. It should include key products which are packed full of active ingredients like: anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatories, and growth factors. A basic skincare routine should include a cleanser, serum, moisturizer, and eye cream.
7. Don’t Forget the Eye Cream
Some people forgo eye cream and use face moisturizer or other products to target aging in the eye area. The problem is that the eye area is made up of thin, delicate skin that requires special treatment. A quality eye cream like the Miracular Eye Cream resolves dark skin and puffiness and rejuvenates the skin under the lower lids.
8. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
There are countless benefits to moisturizing your skin. By using moisturizer every day, you can fight fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of blemishes, reduce acne breakouts, and prevent dryness. The Miracular Skin Essence is a restorative moisturizer that targets collagen, elastin, and new cells to leave your skin youthful.
9. Treat Yourself to Professional Skincare Treatments
While caring for your skin at home with quality products is essential, skincare treatments from professionals can help you maintain your results and even take them to the next level. There are countless treatments out there but some of the most popular include chemical peels, microneedling, dermaplaning, and facials.
10. Be Selective in the Products You Use
Drugstore products won’t get you the results you desire. That’s because they don’t have the ability to treat your skincare concerns from the inside out. They do not use the correct ingredients that the skin needs to thrive. NB Naturals’ products penetrate active and powerful ingredients to the deepest layers of your skin so you can enjoy long-lasting, dramatic results. Check out our products today!
