Daily Cleansing and Moisturizing

The skin is exposed to the environment all the time, with pollutants in the air and water, dirt, and dust flying around, and on top of that, we have the sun’s UV lights. All these factors contribute to accelerated aging and cause the appearance of deep wrinkles at an early age. To remove the dirt and dust that clog the pores, all the pollutants and debris flying around and to make your skin nice and shiny, you’ll need to exfoliate daily or every other day to make sure your skin’s natural oil production is not disrupted. Use a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser to maintain your skin’s natural barrier, and then you’ll need to moisturize the skin to keep it hydrated after removing its natural oils and barrier. A nice hydrating cream should do the trick. Find the one that suits your skin type the most; almost all of them have a specific purpose and the many types range from normal to dry and oily skin.

Different Beauty Treatments 

Sometimes genetics does what it does, and although you’ve been doing everything right, from sleeping and eating properly to wearing sunscreen and moisturizing your skin, you might still see a few wrinkles here and there. Don’t worry, it’s a natural process; after all, we all have to age at some point. But the key is to age gracefully, and a few simple treatments might reduce those extra wrinkles you’re not so fond of. Thankfully, modern facial contouring treatments offer advanced options to refine and rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. These treatments are non-invasive, leave no scars, are pain-free and they’ll make you look younger, reducing those stubborn wrinkles on the forehead and around the mouth and nose area. There are also many wellness and detox treatments you can undergo, and there are botox injections to make the skin look more elastic and fresh. All these treatments have their advantages, and the key is not to overdo them but to make sure you’re aging with grace. 

Sun Protection 

Without the sun, there would not be life on our planet. And we all simply love sunbathing and spending time while slowly roasting on a hot summer’s day, absorbing the heat and warmth. But, UV radiation is not something to be taken lightly, and the sun’s rays can disrupt our skin and damage the protective barrier. UV lights cause damage to the skin on a cellular level, and so too much exposure without the proper protection is often associated with a higher risk of developing different forms of skin cancer. And, although skin cancer doesn’t happen to everyone, there is still the possibility of causing serious damage to the skin and as a result, you have the appearance of wrinkles that make you look older than you are. With sunscreen, all these risks are drastically lowered, as it creates a protective barrier over the skin, blocking UV radiation and saving your skin from irreparable damage. Wear your sunscreen even on cloudy days and make sure to get a 50 SPF factor for those really hot sunny days you enjoy some much. This way, you’ll be safe and can bathe in sunlight without any worries. 

Healthy Diet 

What you eat and the way you live show on your skin. Irregular sleeping patterns, a diet filled with artificial ingredients and processed food, drinking less water and more sugary drinks, smoking, drinking, and a lack of physical exercise will simply age you faster. And that aging process will show on your skin; you’ll look and feel older than you are, and if that’s the case, it might be time for some changes. Instead of excessive drinking and smoking, replace it with liquids that have a lot of anti-oxidants, and drink water and juices that improve your metabolism, and circulation and keep you healthy and fit. Eat more fruits, vegetables, and naturally sourced foods such as dairy and meats. Exercise often to make sure your body is producing all those beneficial hormones it needs to stay in good shape. Don’t neglect your sleep, as the phrase “beauty sleep” exists for a reason and people have been aware of the importance of proper sleeping for appearances and looks for a long time now. Avoid going to bed after midnight and make sure not to eat or drink anything for at least an hour before going to bed for the best quality sleep you’ve had. 


Consult Your Dermatologist 

Before making any major decisions, whether undergoing some treatments or using any skincare products, it’s always good to pay your dermatologist a nice visit and make sure to consult with them about any steps you want to take next. They’ll give you some guidelines on how to apply your skincare products and in what order. They’ll tell you whether the treatment you want is safe for you and you’ll have the needed reassurance and confidence that comes with a professional’s advice. 

It’s not that hard once you get ahead of it, all it takes is a bit of basic knowledge about what your skin and body need. With a few lifestyle changes, you can reduce the risks of old appearance at a young age and beat those wrinkles at their own game. Good luck!
