Everyone wants to look as young as possible. Here are some tips to help make your skin look as much as 10 years younger.
Several factors lead to wrinkled skin. They include heredity, lack of skincare, poor nutrition and stress. If you are trying to improve your skin, you will need to start making up for the poor habits of a lifetime.
Start by eliminating as much stress as possible from your life. Consider creating some spaces for relaxation at home.
Inside, eliminate clutter and surround yourself with relaxing scents and sounds.
Outside, plant some beautiful flowers and look into the cost of a pool. Being near water, whether you actually swim or not, causes instant relaxation. Remember to apply sunscreen while you’re outside de-stressing.
Next, try getting into the spa habit. There are many things you can do at home to take care of your skin, but eventually, you will need treatments of some kind to give problem areas a jumpstart.
The first thing you will notice about a spa is that the entire atmosphere is aimed at relaxing you. The lighting, sounds and scents all contribute to a sense of well-being.
One of the best spa facials you can get to really improve the look of your skin is microdermabrasion. The outer layer of your skin is buffed away (painlessly) removing dead skin cells and embedded impurities. This treatment can even work on fading dark spots and evening out skin tone.
After microdermabrasion, your skin is much more able to absorb serums and moisturizers. Since they are trained professionals, the skincare specialists at the spa will be able to choose just the right combination of products to keep your skin looking great between visits.
Treatments directly on the face can result in dramatic changes, but spa body treatments will make the skin all over your body healthier. Body treatments increase blood flow and encourage toxin elimination, both of which will encourage a youthful glow.
At home, in between spa visits, there’s a lot you can do to continue skin improvement and keep working towards your youthful countdown.
The most important thing is to keep exfoliating and moisturizing your skin. Invest in some exfoliating face cloths and every time you wash your face, your skin will look a bit brighter. Next, use your facial treatments in order of thinnest texture to heaviest texture.
For example, serum goes on first, followed by moisturizer and topped with sunscreen. In summer, your skin may do better with just a moisturizing sunscreen but in winter, you will definitely need something thicker to protect your skin from harsh weather conditions.
Wind and cold not only dry out your skin and lips, but they can actually cause wrinkles, especially around the eyes.
Keeping your skin clean overnight is important since many skin problems start with clogged pores. If you tend to crash at bedtime and can’t imagine washing your face at night, always have quality facial wipes on hand. The ones containing micellar water are the most effective at removing stubborn eye makeup.
Failing that bedtime step, invest in some organic linen pillowcases. Linen is antibacterial and will absorb any oil or perspiration from your skin while you sleep.
Also, whether you’re traveling, at home or working, always make sure you drink enough water. If your body doesn’t have enough moisture in it to keep your organs running efficiently, it will not send any to your dehydrated skin. Drink before you feel thirsty and all will run smoothly.
Take these simple, relaxing and fun steps now and your future face will thank you.
