After a night of drinking or an afternoon lying on the beach, the last thing you’re thinking about is the impact these activities have on your skin. However, even as a young twenty-something, it is important to consider the health of your skin and prepare for the future.
Although you may now take your wrinkle-free skin for granted, in 10 years you’ll be wishing for the face you have now. It’s important to begin preventative measures now to maintain your youthful glow in the future.
There are three important steps to take when beginning your journey towards healthier skin.
Wash your face every night. The dirt and grime that builds up on your skin throughout the day does not only cause breakouts, it also damages your skin over time.
Use an exfoliator to remove the old layer of skin cells that dull your complexion. Exfoliating your skin is the easiest way to get glowing skin overnight.
Apply a moisturizer with SPF built into it. Putting it on after a shower or a steamy bathroom will help your skin absorb more moisture.
While choosing to use anti-aging creams early on can be beneficial for some individuals, others should be a bit more wary of the short-term effects of adding it into their beauty regimen. People who have more oily skin should hold off on starting to use anti-aging creams because the cream’s intensive moisturizing ingredients may clog their pores and lead to breakouts.
For those who choose to forego using anti-aging products, either because of their skin type or the expense of these creams, there are other ways to help avoid future wrinkles. The two absolute best ways to promote healthy skin is by wearing sunscreen everyday and by not smoking.
In this day in age, SPF is included in most foundations. An easy and efficient way to help your skin is by using a BB cream, The BB cream acts as kind of a 2-in-1 product in the sense that it acts as both a sunscreen and a moisturizer, while still concealing and evening your skin.
There are also other ways to easily slow the wrinkling of your skin. To avoid crows feet, wear sunglasses to avoid squinting into the sun. Stay hydrated. Drinking at least one bottle of water a day will help increase your skin’s health, as well as your overall wellness. Get a facial or chemical peel. Not only will you be pampering yourself, but an exfoliating chemical peel does wonders for your glow.
If you do choose to invest in an anti-aging cream, make sure to check out reviews online and to choose a product that’s rich in antioxidants. While many products boast that they can reduce lines overnight, their claims are more often than not quite untrue. Ask your dermatologist to recommend a product that will benefit your skin.
