10 golden rules for youthful-looking skin

Youthful, beautiful skin doesn’t happen by chance; it takes some work. No matter what type of skin your parents have, your genes are only a small part of the equation.

 

As the years go by, the signs of aging start to affect your body and skin is no exception. Thankfully, there are easy ways to slow down the aging process and prevent damage to your skin. That’s because damage can also be caused by a wide range of factors such as sun exposure, your diet, and stress. Factors that, contrary to your DNA, you can easily control. Follow these tips and take the first step toward youthful-looking skin.

How to slow down skin aging

Petit rappel amical : les lingettes démaquillantes, on les garde pour les soirs de paresse ou pour les voyages. Il ne s’agit pas d’un équivalent au bon vieux nettoyage, loin de là! Les lingettes peuvent laisser des résidus, en plus d’empêcher vos doigts de vraiment toucher votre visage. Pourquoi est-ce que le contact des doigts est si important? Un léger massage de la peau procure non seulement un nettoyage en profondeur, mais il stimule aussi la circulation sanguine et améliore le teint.

The most efficient way to clean your face is to use a gentle cleanser adapted to your skin type. The goal is to get rid of sweat, excess sebum, makeup and dirt accumulated on your face throughout the day without removing essential oils.

Use a cream formulated with retinol two or three times a week.
Why it works: Vitamin A derivatives (such as retinol) are a great ally in the fight against wrinkles, age spots and acne. Retinol accelerates cellular renewal to exfoliate and reveal healthier, youthful-looking skin. Your skin might become dry, irritated and start to peel more than usual. Don’t give up! The results can take up to four weeks to become apparent.

Be gentle. Start by applying creams or serums formulated with retinol twice a week (a very thin layer before you apply your day or night cream), then progressively increase the frequency until you use it daily, morning or night on clean, dry skin.

Protect yourself from the sun.

UV rays damage DNA cells and increase your risk of skin cancer. UV rays can also deteriorate the collagen in your skin, which results in premature signs of aging. Because even on a cloudy day the sun doesn’t take a vacation, remember to always apply sunscreen. Make it a habit, and use cream with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher before stepping outside.

Hydrate your skin.

Just like your body needs at least 1.5 litres of water on average every day to function, your skin needs moisture to stay refreshed and healthy. Apply a moisturizer that’s specifically designed for your skin type, especially on areas exposed to the sun.
