Anti-aging skin care is possibly one of the most sought after remedy in the market place today. But unfortunately, there are two things that you will never be able to escape as you get older… the effects that aging does to your health and the noticeable effects aging has on your skin. The first causes you to feel the effects of aging, and the second causes others to notice your age. And especially for women the second plays a large role in the way they view themselves.
Looking younger for a woman means feeling younger also. So, conquering the second effect of aging can reverse the first. And what better way is there to anti-aging skin care than an all natural approach! Some of these anti-aging skin care tips are effective now and others will be effective on the long term approach.
The first step to anti-aging skin care is knowing your skin type. Is it dry or oily? Sensitive or thick? Try to first pinpoint your own skin type before choosing the best method to anti-aging. And if you currently have a skin care routine, ask yourself if you are satisfied. If you are not satisfied, look for higher quality, natural products that will help improve the condition of your skin.
Some of your dissatisfaction could be a result to your current petroleum (chemical) based products. Also, if you do not feel comfortable about judging your own skin, see a skincare expert like a dermatologist.
After determining your skin type, begin searching for products that are directed towards your particular type. Some of your current problems could just be from using the wrong products. Next step would be to begin hydrating your skin by drinking more water. Many people suffer from dry skin because they simply do not consume enough water throughout the day. Drinking 6-8 glasses of water can keep your skin looking healthy and hydrated.
Hydrating your skin can help you fight against the ever devastating damage that the sun’s ultra violent rays does to your skin. Of course, there are many other ways to help block these harmful rays. You could wear sunscreen with a high SPF number, wear long sleeves and pants, or limit your time outdoors between the hours of 11am and 3pm when the sun is at its worst. A combination of all these would be the best natural remedy for avoiding sun damage to the skin.
Another tip to avoid premature aging, wrinkles, or skin discoloration is to avoid using tanning beds. Try rub on tanning creams or lotions that help bring out your natural glow without exposing your skin to more harmful rays. Let’s face it, healthy glowing skin looks better than dark, aged and dry skin!
A final tip for anti-aging skin care is to clean your skin gently. Many people fall victim to over cleaning their face which causes more damage. Scrubbing your face with a cleanser is not necessarily needed. Rub lightly and let the foaming actions do its part and then rinse. Or if you use an all natural skin care product, try to use them when needed and not over do it just because you are seeing excellent results. Reading the directions thoroughly on any product can help you get the best results.
Some Other Skin-Care Tips Along with your face, other parts of your body also need care. If your eyes look puffy or swollen, wash your face and cover your eyes with sliced potatoes or cucumbers for a few minutes. This is really effective in the morning. Clean you nails with white vinegar before applying nail polish for a smoother finish and make it last longer. Olive oil mixed with melted beeswax can serve as a great lip balm. Try all these tips suggested and get prepared for receiving bunch of compliments for your glowing & youthful skin.
