As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and glow. We might be as healthy and as strong as we’ve always been, but our skin slowly starts sagging, we get fine wrinkles and some discoloration appears. As if natural ageing process is not scary enough, everyday stress, lack ofsleep, and plenty of unhealthy food only make things worse. Is there anything you can do to slow it down and perhaps reverse it? Luckily, there are some great ways to rejuvenate your skin and bring back its healthy glow.
Cleanse and exfoliate
Every day your skin gets buried under a layer of dead skin cells, oil, and dirt, and bycleansing it you allow it to ‘breathe’. This way, you will relieve your skin of all that harmful debris, which will leave you with a nice, fresh look. In addition to daily cleansing, you should exfoliate once a week but not more than that since exfoliating is aprocedure that’s a bit harsher than cleansing and your skin would be too dry and flaky if you were to do it every day. Remember that not all cleansers are the same and depending on your skin type you should choose a cleanser with low alcohol content (dry skin), without fragrances and additives (sensitive skin), or the one with a lower PH level (oily skin).
Moisturize with creams and masks
Moisturizers help your skin stay hydrated and fresh, and they actas temporary wrinkle fillers. After you apply a moisturizer your skin looks smooth and supple. You can choose to moisturize your skin with different creams, but you can also make your own mask at home. Masks with avocado and honey are the most popular ones because avocados are rich in vitamin E, healthy fats, and antioxidants, which will keep your skin smooth. Put 3 tablespoons of fresh cream, a quarter of an avocado, and a tablespoon of honey in a blender and make a smooth cream. Rinse it off with warm water after an hour, and gently dab your face with a soft towel.
A simple face massage will help restore the natural glow of your skin while simultaneously reducing wrinkles. What is more, massages improve blood circulation, and help remove toxins and dead skin cells. Coconut oil is great for facial massage, and it does wonders for dry skin. Rub five drops of coconut oil in your palms and massage your face every day before you go to bed. Use your fingers to make small and big circles on your face – circular movements are great for improving circulation. You don’t even have to wash the oil off later, since athin layerof it willlock the moisturein.
For those who don’t want to get a facelift, there are many other, less invasive surgical procedures. Experts from ICCM in Sydney state that dermal fillers are the most effective and popular non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments which will postpone anysigns of ageing. Anti-wrinkle injections are also popular because they don’t require anyrecovery time, and they’re effective and rather affordable. There are also different superficial peels that will soften fine lines and wrinkles, but there are also some that can prevent acne breakouts.
Having healthy, radiant skin is something we’re all striving for, and thanks to cosmetics and medicine, this is now easier than ever. If you want to retain the youthful look ofyour skin, you should also try changing your diet, drinking more water (not sodas, mind you), and taking multivitamins. These simple tricks will remove toxins from your system and leave your skin smooth and supple.
