Avoid repetitive facial expressions. When you make a facial expression, you contract the underlying muscles. If you repeatedly contract the same muscles for many years, these lines become permanent. Wearing sunglasses can help reduce lines caused by squinting.
Make SPF your daily buddy. Find a sunscreen that is broad-spectrum, SPF 30 (or higher), and water-resistant. You should apply sunscreen every day to all skin that is not covered by clothing.
Soap-free skin cleanser The basic and most essential yet, sadly, the most neglected aspect of skin care is using the correct cleanser. Soaps dry out the skin, hastening the ageing process. They also make the skin more prone to bacterial infections by changing its pH or chemical balance to alkaline instead of its normal acidic value. So a soap-free deep cleanser is a must for all ages and both sexes.
Apply self-tanner rather than get a tan. Every time you get a tan, you prematurely age your skin. This holds true if you get a tan from the sun, a tanning bed, or other indoor tanning equipment. All emit harmful UV rays that accelerate how quickly your skin ages.
If you smoke, stop. Smoking greatly speeds up how quickly skin ages. It causes wrinkles and a dull, sallow complexion.
Exfoliant Though not a daily use product, it is a wonderful way to keep off dead cell build-up that takes away the glow from your skin. Use a coarser one for the body and a gentler one with synthetic, rounded granules for the face and neck. Use these not more than twice a week for 5 – 10 minutes each time.
Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet- You are what you eat! Really!
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to eat well. Avoid eating too many refined sugars and grains. Eat plenty of healthy fats like flax-seed oils and omega 3 fish oils. Make sure your diet is rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables:
Berries are high in vitamin C, and help support the immune system. Carrots are rich in vitamin A, an important antioxidant. Parsley contains a lot of vitamin K which helps skin to heal. Seeds, such as sunflower, pumpkin and chia) are rich in selenium, good for protecting skin against age damage and sun damage. Whole grains reduce skin inflammation.
Vitamin C. This vitamin is one of the best things in nature that can do wonders for your skin. It helps to build collagen which prevents sagging, it protects from the sun, it strengthens the tiny blood vessels in the skin, thus preventing age spots.
Drink less alcohol. Alcohol is rough on the skin. It dehydrates the skin, and in time, damages the skin. This can make us look older.
Exercise most days of the week. Findings from a few studies suggest that moderate exercise can improve circulation and boost the immune system. This, in turn, may give the skin a more-youthful appearance.
Cleanse your skin gently. Scrubbing your skin clean can irritate your skin. Irritating your skin accelerates skin aging. Gentle washing helps to remove pollution, makeup, and other substances without irritating your skin.
Wash your face twice a day and after sweating heavily. Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, irritates the skin, so you want to wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating.
Apply a facial moisturizer every day. Moisturizer traps water in our skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
Stop using skin care products that sting or burn. When your skin burns or stings, it means your skin is irritated. Irritating your skin can make it look older.
