Anti-Aging Beauty Routine For Youthful and Glowing Skin

Truth be told, there are only a few ingredients that can definitely help minimize signs of aging. I’m talking about ones that are scientifically proven to reduce the appearance of age-related skin issues, i.e., wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, etc. From wrinkle-reducing retinol to skin-brightening vitamin C, these powerhouse anti-aging ingredients must be every Woman’s companion, especially in an advanced age.. Another essential? Antioxidants. “Antioxidants will help to repair some of the sun damage that has started to develop over the years. They brighten dull skin, and help to rejuvenate collagen,” says Caroline Esseme, Douala-based Dermatologist and Beautician.


APPLY VITAMIN C IN THE MORNING

Although there’s no law against applying vitamin C in the evening, most prefer to apply it during the day since its antioxidant properties act as a shield to deflect pollution and other environmental aggressors. Serums are usually the preferred form of vitamin C they contain a concentrated delivery system and are the most straightforward to use (i.e., before moisturizer).

MOISTURIZE (MORNING AND NIGHT)

Yep, that goes for a.m. and p.m. Mature skin needs hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, so consider a solid moisturizer after cleansing the key to graceful aging. I’m sure you have a go-to moisturizer at this point (which you can definitely stick to if it works for you, but in case you’re looking for a new fix, I highly recommend whipped or gel formulas, especially since you’re going to be layering different products with it. The quick-absorbing consistency will prevent your complexion from feeling sticky come summertime. Also, keep an eye out for moisturizers containing hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which are essentially the MVPs of hydration.


EAT A BALANCED DIET Good skin care starts on the inside. To give skin the nutrients it needs to form and repair itself, eat a healthful diet rich in: fruits and vegetables – whole grains -lean protein sources, such as fish, eggs, legumes, and tofu – healthful fats, including nuts, avocado, and olive oil Avoiding processed and sugar-filled foods and limiting alcohol intake may also help improve skin health. Alcohol may make certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis, worse. People with a skin condition such as acne or eczema should speak with a dermatologist to determine whether there are any foods that may make symptoms worse.


HYDRATE WITH 8-10 GLASSES OF WATER DAILY.

Hydration is the key step to keeping the elasticity of our skin. Drinking the recommended amount of water for daily intake helps prevent drying and sagging, and keeps your skin healthy from the inside out, making it the best moisturizer and cleanser you can get.


KEEP FIT

Aim to be physically active every day. – Any activity is better than none. The more you do the better, even if it’s just light activity – Do activities that improve strength, balance, and flexibility at least 2days a week – Do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a week or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity if you are already active, or a combination of both – Reduce time spent sitting or lying down and break up long periods of not moving with some activity.
