Women are never supposed to tell their age, we're told. And now, with new facial cleansing products, new dietary guidelines, and new ways of cleaning, we don't have to. We can lie, lie, lie about our age all day, and if you do it right, they'll believe you.
Here are five age-defying secrets every woman can use to keep your skin looking healthy and young.
Practice overall wellness.
For a healthy, glowing body on the outside, you need a healthy, glowing body on the inside. Exercise will also increase your overall wellness level and give you a glow. A bout of exercise will also bring some rosy color to your cheeks, giving you a natural flush.
Be mindful of what you put into your body.
You need to eat a variety of local, organic fruits and vegetables that are in season, and add a handful of nuts now and then. Limit your consumption of alcohol. Sugar is another substance you need to limit; in fact, limit your consumption of sugar to natural sources, such as honey and fruits. Eat a balanced breakfast to start the day off in a positive direction.
Start a good skincare program early.
While it’s never too late to start taking care of your skin, those of you who are younger, take advantage of your skin’s youth and start a good skincare regime now. After 40, you begin to show the signs of aging in the form of lines and wrinkles. Starting a regular skincare routine sooner in life rather than later can delay the signs of aging.
Avoid cosmetic surgery like facelifts, fillers, stretchers, etc.
If you start your skincare regimen early enough in life, you won’t have to worry about invasive procedures to achieve a youthful appearance. By avoiding these kinds of procedures and operations, your skin will age more gracefully and naturally. Cosmetic surgery will actually make your skin look worse in the end. Once or twice a month, we’re giving you permission to get a facial. This kind of non-invasive treatment can increase blood flow and cellular turnover, which results in a younger looking you.
Never, EVER go to bed with makeup on…
unless you like pimples, blackheads, and clogged pores. Not to mention raccoon eyes and Bozo lips. Unfortunately, 90% of women tend to hit the sack without first cleaning off makeup and the day’s pollutants. Even if you are a firm believer in regular facials, keeping your face clean while the skin works on repairing itself will do wonders in keeping your skin healthy and happy.
