I started thinking about my skin care routine years ago since I knew what I was doing was old fashioned. Using the same cleanser on my face as I did on my body was harming and drying my skin. Therefore, I started seeing an esthetician and she put me on the right track.
Little did I know that I’d too become an esthetician and the rest is history. We all can do something about the aging process and our skin. Making specific changes can help us minimize and wrinkles, dry skin, and age spots. Your skin can indeed be beautiful and glowing again.
Going to bed without cleansing and moisturizing your skin is no longer acceptable. As you age, it is so important to remove makeup and debris from your skin. This will allow your skin to breathe and unclog your pores.
Aging brings with it thinner skin since it loses fat cells. Your veins are easily seen and it’s easier to bruise as well. Protecting your skin against bumps take longer to get well. Clear and healthy skin should be your goal.
Drinking water is one of the best things you can do for your body and skin. Waxing, facials, and exercise are better experiences with hydrated skin.
Water helps your skin in looking younger, and tanning does the opposite. The sun is drying, causes wrinkles, and dehydrates. Have you ever seen someone who tans often? Do they look older to you? If you don’t see it now, you will see it in years to come.
If you smoke, stop. Too much perfume, soap, and hot showers all add to the aging process. Exercise and yoga will help in relieving stress and to better care for your skin.
Although water cleanses, you’ll need a moisturizer to smooth and keep your skin soft. Daily use is essential in addition to bathing in warm water; especially if you live in a warm weather state or use air conditioning.
Too much sun causes age spots and skin tags (small, flesh-colored growths). Apply proper SPF 15 or above and protective clothing to have as much coverage as possible.
Also, many skin care products simply do not perform well, if at all. It is best to consult your esthetician if you’re concerned about wrinkles and age spots. She can correctly guide you to the proper skin care products.
Avoid products which contain too much perfume or which may contain too many types of fillers. If a product causes your skin to itch, tingle, or turn red, stop using it immediately and see your esthetician.
If you take care of your skin in your youth, you’ll have fewer troubles. Alter your skin routine to avoid issues as you age. Cleaning and moisturizing will be your skin’s best friend. Treat it kindly.
