How To Maintain Your Youthful Glow As You Age

If you want to maintain your youthful glow as you age, then there are a number of considerations that you must keep in mind.

It’s inevitable that you get older with time, but that doesn’t mean that your appearance or how you feel has to suffer. No matter what do you will still develop wrinkles, and your hair will eventually turn grey, but you can delay the process if you are smart about it and follow the tips outlined here.

Thus, pay special attention to the following advice and follow it to wake up in the morning looking good and feeling energized.

Wear sunscreen
Wearing sunscreen should be the golden rule that you live by and never forget at any point. This will not only ensure that you are not a victim to skin cancer, but it can furthermore delay the appearance of wrinkles or dark spots for that matter.

Moreover, sunscreen is something that you should wear regardless of whether it is cloudy or sunny outside, as the sun’s ultraviolet rays can still affect your skin.

Eat nutritious meals
The food that you eat has a direct impact on how you look, and this especially affects the appearance of your skin. If you find yourself victim to acne or other blemishes, it could be a result of your current diet.

Do you often find yourself purchasing food that is overly processed and filled with sugar? If so, then you need to get into the habit of prepping your meals ahead of time, and instead, adopt a more well-balanced and nutritious diet.

Aside from affecting how you look, this will also impact how you feel every single day. Food is fuel, and if you eat meals that are filled with vitamins, you will also feel energized.

Get treatment
Getting advice from a health care professional with regards to how you can physically look younger is also something that you can do. In particular, many people opt to get Botox by investing in your laser skin care.

Aside from the more natural remedies to looking younger that were mentioned earlier, this is a guaranteed method for ensuring that the wrinkles on your face are faded much quicker.

Avoid stress
Stress is not only bad for your health, but it can also affect how you look. Thus, as soon as you notice the signs of stress, it’s essential that you avoid putting yourself in similar situations moving forward.

If it’s a result of your job, then you may want to consider making a career change or looking for opportunities via another employer. You should never have to sacrifice your happiness and wellbeing at any point in your lifespan.

Thus, this is the not-so-secret way that you can maintain your 20s or 30s glow well into your 40s and 50s. You don’t need to take this article’s word for it; you can try it out for yourself and notice what a big difference it will make to your beauty and health. Of course, there are many other tips you can follow, such as ensuring that you get enough sleep every single night, but the list mentioned is certainly a good starting point.

Give Your Skin a Drink!

Taking care of your skin is important all year round, but that doesn’t mean the products used in the summer are best for your skin in the winter. As the seasons change so do your skin’s needs, and in the wintertime, hydration is key (yes, even if your skin is oily!). Fighting the irritation and dryness associated with New Jersey winters can save your skin from long term damage. I have a specific nightly routine that keeps my skin hydrated with anti-aging benefits.

Whether or not I’ve worn makeup for the day, I start by double cleansing. Double cleansing is exactly how it sounds: using two separate cleansers, one specific to makeup removal and one that gives a deeper, water-based cleanse. Lancome’s Lait Galatée Confort Cleansing Milk (Ulta, $30) is my go-to makeup removing cleanser because it’s gentle and conditions the skin using Honey and Sweet Almond Extract. As part of my second cleanse, I use Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKate Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash (Sephora, $38), which contains alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and natural fruit enzymes to purify the skin without stripping away natural oils.

To ensure my skin is completely clean, I use Lancome’s Tonique Confort (Ulta $30), a rehydrating toner. Not only does this remove any residual makeup, but it also contains Honey and Sweet Almond Extract to immediately rehydrate.

For an extra boost of hydration while providing myself with an anti-aging treatment, I use Kate Somerville’s Wrinkle Warrior 2-in-1 Plumping Moisturizer + Serum (Sephora, $95). This product features powerful HA³, aiding in the skin’s ability to hold water for long-lasting hydration and a plumper look. While this absorbs into my skin, I use The Ordinary’s Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG underneath and around my eye contour to help combat puffiness and dark circles. EGCG is the most powerful antioxidant found in green tea!

Just a few more steps: I love to top off my skin with Farsali’s Volcanic Elixir (Sephora, $39) for the ultimate hydrating and soothing experience. Volcanic Elixir is made with 100% pure Polynesian Tamanu Oil. Known for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibiotic and antimicrobial properties, this oil regenerates skin tissue while repairing and conditioning, making it perfect for battling the effects of a cold, harsh winter.

When it comes to hydration, you can’t forget your lips. I like to use Vaseline or Laneige’s Sleeping Lip Mask (Sephora, $20) in Vanilla, both products aiding in intense hydration and restoration. My final step for this routine is jade rolling to promote circulation and lymphatic drainage, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. I run hot water over the large side of the roller (better for absorption) and cold water on the smaller side (reduces puffiness and darkness).
