Skin changes are among the most visible signs of aging. How your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors: your lifestyle, diet, heredity, sun exposure, pollution, even stress and sleep position. Dryness and itching are common for mature skin. The loss of oil glands as we age may also worsen which is why a good moisturizer is essential. Evidence of increasing age can be found in and on your skin. You’ll see clear evidence of aging when you see wrinkles, sagging skin, skin discolouration, loss of radiance and there will also be a breakdown of collagen and elastin.
When it comes to the more visible effects of aging on the skin, well, let’s be honest. Flaky, dry skin is not attractive, especially when your foundation sits on top. Fight off the dry skin with daily exfoliation with either a facial scrub or a washcloth dipped in coconut oil. To keep the dry skin away, make sure you moisturize often! Nothing plumps up the skin better than hydration and it helps everything glide on better: your concealer, foundation, sunscreen and blush!
Shopping for an anti-aging skin care product can feel like a hit-or-miss experience. With so many choices that promise to make you look young, it can be difficult to know which products to choose. Luckily, there are plenty of good products to moisturize all skin types.
- Try to limit your sun exposure, wear hats and use sunblock. Sun damage is one of the leading causes of wrinkled, spotted skin. A lot of sun damage doesn’t become fully apparent until later in life – but it’s never “too late” to make a difference in the health of your skin by reducing your sun exposure.
- Wash your face first thing in the morning and before you go to sleep, however, don’t use hot water. Hot water strips your skin of oils so instead, use lukewarm water or skip the water and cleanse skin with a cold cream.
- Quit smoking. Seems like common sense but not only does smoking cause all sorts of cancers, but it wreaks havok on your skin and makes you look much older than you are.
As with any product we recommend from Amazon, we highly suggest you read the reviews that others have written. Other women will tell you what worked for them and what didn’t, very useful information before you spend some of your hard-earned money.
