Are you satisfied with your body? More than 70% of the US citizens, regardless of their sex, aren’t. One of the most common causes of such dissatisfaction is aging. Our bodies start to age slowly at the age of 25. Even though we don’t notice the effects immediately, the skin needs our attention earlier than we think.
With the right maintenance, maintaining youthful skin and body is easy. Even though plastic surgery may be unavoidable at some point, a proper skincare regime can help you look younger for as long as possible. Below are a few tips you can start paying attention to right now, regardless of your age.
1. It’s Never Too Late To Start
If you see wrinkles on your face and experience skin sagging, it doesn’t mean it’s too late to start skincare. No matter how old you are, optimizing the skincare routine can take years off your face.
The best way to go is to consult an experienced cosmetologist about your skin maintenance. Giving up on the care just because you look “too old anyway” is robbing yourself of an opportunity to look younger.
2. Exfoliate Consistently
Exfoliation is the key to looking excellent regardless of your skin’s condition. The process takes care of the old and dead skin cells, revealing fresh and young skin below. Be very careful when choosing the right exfoliation products. Acid peels vary in strength and could cause allergies.
Deep peels need to be done under the control of a professional. Always read the instructions and do spot tests. Experts at kFreya anti-age cosmetics recommend doing light exfoliation once or twice a week. Deep peels need to be done at least twice a year.
3. Remove Your Makeup
No matter how terribly tired you are before going to sleep, always remove your makeup. Makeup clogs pores, causes inflammation, and promotes skin aging. No matter how high in quality the products you use are, you need to limit the time you are wearing them.
So it’s ok to forget to undress before going to sleep, but cleaning your face is a must.
4. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
As the skin ages, it loses moisture. You can help the skin look excellent by adding a proper moisturizer to the skincare routine. You should apply the moisturizer to your whole body at least once a day. Ideally, you should do it in the morning and the evening.
Always apply the moisturizer when the skin is still damp. This way you can ensure proper absorption. Make sure to buy a proper moisturizer according to your age and skin type. Be careful when reading the label. Opt for as many organic components as possible.
5. Watch Your Diet
We are what we eat. When we eat something “bad”, our skin and body react immediately. So besides cutting down on fast food, sugar, and alcohol, you need to introduce such skin-friendly food into your diet as:
- Fatty fish (contains omega 3 fatty acids)
- Avocado (high content of healthy fats)
- Walnuts (contain essential fatty acids)
- Sweet potatoes (rich in vitamin A)
- Broccoli (contains zinc, vitamin C)
- And more
6. Listen To Your Skin
Sometimes, even the best skin care products don’t do the trick. Your skin knows what it needs better than hundreds of cosmetologists do. So pay close attention to how it reacts to what you eat, do, and the products you use. Sometimes, it’s useful to keep a log of your habits and the body’s reaction to them.
Eventually, you’ll find the ideal skin care routine for yourself. All you have to do is practice a little patience.
