Who doesn’t wish for everlasting smooth and glowing skin? Unfortunately, like all things, time takes its toll on your beautiful skin as well.
With passing time, the skin loses its moisture content and natural oils. There is also a decrease in collagen production. Collagen is the protein that gives your skin its elastic nature, and with a decrease in collagen, the skin starts developing wrinkles and fine lines. The decreased elasticity also eventually leads to sagging skin.
As the skin ages, it also starts losing its ability to heal and rejuvenate. The daily damage keeps building up, resulting in more and more conspicuous signs of aging.
While the turning of the wheel of time is not under anyone’s control, it is entirely possible to delay the appearance of the signs of aging, and in some cases, even reverse them. Here are the top 5 skincare tips to keep your skin smooth, glowing, and ever-youthful:
Protect Your Skin From The Sun
Sun-related skin damage is the premier cause of premature skin aging. The UV rays present in sunlight damage the collagen of your skin and this damage builds up over time leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and crows’ feet. Sun exposure can also cause sunspots, sunburns, and even cancer.
Limit your exposure to the sun as far as possible, and when you do head out, wear a hat, sunglasses, and full-sleeved clothing. Don’t forget to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. Research has shown that those who apply sunscreen on a regular basis develop significantly lesser signs of aging than those who only apply it occasionally or in inadequate quantities.
Hydrate Your Skin
Make sure you apply moisturizer twice a day. Doing so not only hydrates your skin, but the moisturizer also forms a protective barrier on your skin that protects it from harmful external elements such as dirt and pollution.
Don’t forget that you also need to drink at least 2 liters of water every day to keep your skin well hydrated and succulent.
Rebuild and Rejuvenate
Your skin is constantly under attack from hazardous external elements such as sunlight and pollution. These external factors, along with habits like smoking and alcohol, generate free radicals which damage your DNA and destroy the collagen in your skin. Therefore, just protecting your skin from external factors is not enough, you need to supply your skin with ingredients that promote collagen production and accelerate the healing process.
We Recommend: Pro-xylane 10% Anti-Aging Essence
Pro-xylane is a naturally occurring sugar derived from the beech tree. It is renowned for its ability to speed up your skin’s collagen synthesis, giving a much-needed boost to the skin’s regenerative effort. Timely rejuvenation of collagen helps your skin maintain its elastic and supple nature, and decreases the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Pro-xylane also promotes the production of GAGs (glycosaminoglycans) and hyaluronic acid, which are some of the best hydrating agents known in nature.
This incredible essence is also enriched with mulberry leaf extract which is known to combat skin discoloration and inflammation, ensuring that pigmentation spots do not develop and existing ones fade speedily.
Together, these ingredients help give you a blemish-free and visibly more plump, radiant, and smooth skin.
Use Face Serum
Serums are lightweight formulations enriched with active ingredients like vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, or green tea extract. Due to their light nature, serums are easily absorbed by the skin and provide deep nourishment.
We recommend: MixX Lab Anti-aging Antioxidant Serum
Packed with the goodness of Idebenone – a potent antioxidant – our anti-aging serum protects the skin from free radical damage caused by ultraviolet radiation, pollution, and other environmental elements. This powerful essence also contains Snow Mushroom extract, rich in Vitamin D and antioxidants, as well as sunflower seed oil, rich in Vitamin E, which together work wonders in keeping your skin hydrated and protected from the damaging effects of free radicals.
The outer layer of dead skin cells can make your skin look dry and desiccated, adding a few years to your looks. Remember to exfoliate them one to two times a week. Make sure that you do not overdo the exfoliation though, as this can lead to dryness and irritation.
Aging may be an inescapable facet of life, but slowing down the clock is not only possible, it is quite easy. All you need to do is to protect your skin from external harm and use ingredients that speed up the healing process. In addition, lifestyle choices such as a healthy diet, adequate sleep, and regular exercise are also important factors in sustaining youthful skin.
