6 Skincare Habits for Youthful Looking Skin

A big part of a woman’s confidence comes from the appearance of her skin. Sun spots, wrinkles, scars, and other skin issues can make it difficult to live our daily lives carefree and happy, especially if we don’t feel beautiful enough to be proud of our own face. Rather than using makeup to play with colors, we start using it to hide behind it. So, what can we do to avoid this and keep our skin youthful and beautiful? Well, we’ve got some tips.

Always use sunscreen

This is the number one, unavoidable rule that you always need to adhere to. Sunscreen is your best bet when it comes to preventing skin cancer, but it’s also pretty damn amazing at staving off wrinkles and preventing hyperpigmentation. Most of the signs of aging are actually a consequence of sun damage, and if you spend a lot of time outside, you really need to protect your skin. This holds true for every season of the year, not just summer. Bear in mind that sunscreen really is the best way to do this because makeup that contains SPF usually doesn’t have a high enough of a protection factor, and even if it does, you’d need to slather it on in a pretty thick layer for it to be fully effective. We also recommend avoiding sunbathing too much (use a self-tanning lotion if you want some more color), and especially avoid tanning salons (we’re not joking around here, they’re extremely bad for your skin).

Cut down on sugar
Sugar doesn’t only affect your weight, but your skin as well. Through the process called glycation, sugar binds itself to protein molecules when it enters our bloodstream and degrades our collagen and elastin molecules. This causes your skin to degrade and increases your chance of developing wrinkles. It can also make your skin sag. Instead, try eating more veggies and lean meats, particularly superfoods that can nourish your skin from the inside out.

Be very consistent

The key to that delectably soft, plump complexion is a combination of good products and consistency. By incorporating a quality serum, moisturizer, and an eye cream you will have a great set of moisturizing skincare products at your disposal, especially if you pick products that don’t contain parabens, harsh chemicals, or synthetic fragrances. Then, the only thing you’ll need to do to help it along is to stay consistent. Don’t be lazy with the application because establishing a good routine is really the key to letting all of the products do their magic. Besides, skincare shouldn’t be a chore. Think of it more as a calming beauty ritual that’s there to make you feel pampered every day.

Get enough sleep
Lack of sleep can literally cause neurological and cardiovascular damage, so is it any wonder that it can cause wrinkles as well? If you don’t get enough sleep, your skin doesn’t get the chance to repair itself during the night, you also wake up swollen, exhausted, and squinting at the world as you stumble around looking for coffee. Get your regular seven hours a night, ladies! It’s called “beauty sleep” for a reason.

Drink more water

As simple as this tip is, it’s incredibly effective. If you drink enough water, your skin will be clearer and better moisturized. It’s particularly important to stay hydrated if you drink a lot of tea or coffee, or exercise regularly. Seriously, try to increase your daily water intake and see how your skin feels after only three weeks.

Have strategies to unwind
And finally, the biggest contributor to bad skin is stress. It’s bad for our overall health, and it’s terrible for our complexion. So, what can be done? Since none of us can really avoid stress, it’s important to find strategies to deal with it. Perhaps you will go out for a run, or maybe you’ll go to the salon for a massage. Yoga, tai chi, or sports can really help you unwind, but so can activities such as painting, making crafts, listening to music, and especially reading a book. Why not sit down in a comfy chair, put on a sheet mask, and enjoy a good novel?

Hope you enjoyed these tips. The biggest trick really is to make them all a part of your daily routine, so try not to skip any of these steps and enjoy the way your face is slowly being rejuvenated over time.
