4 Ways You Can Start Looking Younger with Healthier Skin Right Now
Age is just a number, but it sure is fun to hide it with young looking skin. When the skin on our faces begins to wrinkle and sag, it becomes easy for people to guess how old we really are. Fortunately, there are several things we can do to make our skin healthier so we can look younger than we really are.
Some skin-care products claim to be age-defying, but they are full of ingredients that irritate and age the skin. When you are shopping for products that will hydrate the skin and reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, look for specific ingredients like antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Products that contain ingredients like alpha-hydroxy acids will remove the top layer of dead skin to reveal healthy skin underneath. Retinol and peptides help reverse signs of ageing. Vitamin C and niacinamide help rid the skin of fine lines and wrinkles. You should also look for co-q10, grape-seed extract, and tea extracts, too.
Buy age-defying skin-care products
Have healthy cosmetic treatments
You do not need to undergo expensive plastic surgery to look younger. All too often, plastic surgery can make faces look unnatural. Instead, try healthy cosmetic treatments that do not require surgery. Laser therapy or ultrasound therapy can tighten sagging skin. Fillers can take care of fine lines and wrinkles without the need for surgery. Aesthetic procedures like facials and micro peels can also help hydrate the skin and take away years of damage.
Nothing ages the face more than heavy makeup. If you have fine lines and wrinkles, heavy foundation can show those off instead of hiding them. Glittery makeup also accentuates flaws in the skin and they make mature women look like they are simply trying too hard to look young. Makeup can also dehydrate and damage the skin. Young and healthy faces do not need a heavy foundation, loads of eyeshadow, and mounds of blush. Young and healthy faces might have makeup on, but the makeup is minimal. If you need a foundational makeup product, try a primer or a moisturizer with a subtle tint. This will give you some coverage, but it won’t settle in your flaws.
Limit the makeup you wear
Use a faux tanning product
A bit of a suntan also makes the skin look younger. Unfortunately, though, a real suntan does the opposite - it damages and ages the skin. So, if you are looking for a healthy glow, use a self-tanner, especially a type that gradually tans the skin. Quick tanning products tend to darken at the joints and can streak in other places, but gradual tanners create even finishes. When you apply a self-tanner to your body, be sure that you use a light touch on your face. You can add the self-tanner to your facial moisturizer so you do not overdo the colour. Once you get the colour you like, you can use a creamy bronzer or blush to add some contour to your face, too.
