Daily Anti Aging Treatments for Your Skin
Here are three very important anti aging treatments we can apply to our every day skin care routine to help keep our skin looking healthy and youthful. There is no magic process that take years off your appearance, but committing to a dedicated routine will help in the long term.
Follow the advice of our expert contributors to maintain healthy, beautiful skin.
Exfoliation becomes more important as you age. The skin is constantly generating new skin cells and sending them to the surface. However, as time goes on, the process of cell turnover decreases, and the skin can start to look dry and less glowing. Since exfoliation increases cell turnover, the skin appears and feels tighter and more polished.
Scrub products also help to emphasize the holistic approach of de-stressing and relaxation, along with skin conditioning. Exfoliation is more than just a beauty process – it is truly one of the best things you can do to improve the appearance of your skin and keep it healthy.
After ridding your skin of its dead cells by exfoliating in circular motions at least once per week, apply something that helps to repair the skin. Try anything with aloe vera if you want a natural treatment. This will help to protect and soothe the new healthy skin that is now exposed after exfoliating. Also, don’t forget your neck. Neglecting your neck will not reap the benefits from the same anti-aging effects, and it shows age.
You want to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer, so you are a dedicated sunscreen wearer. With so many makeup products offering SPF, it’s tempting to use them for coverage rather than putting on sunscreen. Giving in to that temptation would be a mistake. You would need to use 14 times the normally used amount of make-up to get any sun protection. No one does this!
Instead listen to the experts. Dermatologists advise people use a moisturizer containing broad-spectrum sunscreen (which means it blocks both UVA and UVB rays) with an SPF rating of at least 15. Look for ingredients such as avobenzone or ecamsule, both of which work best with makeup and provide broad spectrum protections.
