When it comes to trying to maintain a youthful glow and a younger aesthetic overall, it would be fair to say that the health and quality of your skin has a lot to do with it. Sure, you can do a lot with the clothes that you choose to wear and the makeup that you apply, but at the end of the day, if you have old looking, badly treated skin, then those external factors can only do so much to help add a youthful edge. Don’t worry, though, skin experts have a lot to say on the matter! Here are nine tricks from dermatologists to look younger.
1. Sleeping on Your Back
Sleeping on your back has been suggested as a way to keep your skin looking younger for longer because when you sleep on your stomach or on your side, it can create a furrow on one side of your face. Sleeping on your back will eliminate the presence of this furrow, and therefore minimize risk of wrinkles.
2. Gym Restrictions
It is a good idea not to totally overdo it at the gym, because the older you get, and the thinner you are, the more weathered and aged your skin will look. Stick thin people over the age of about 45 always tend to look older than those who have a few extra pounds under their skin.
3. Driving Sun Damage
We are pretty good at slapping on the sunscreen when we are out at the beach on just out in general, but one time where people tend to forget about the risks is when they are driving. The glass of your car might have some protective properties, but not enough that you can get away without putting any product on at all. Wear a moisturiser with a good SPF every day.
4. Don’t Switch Products
Try not to switch your skincare products around too often, because your skin will benefit from enjoying a regular chemical routine that two or three essential products will provide for it. You don’t want to dry it out one week and then over-hydrate it the next.
5. Brow Wax
Some women think that they need brow lifts to get rid of that dowdy, grump look, but in reality sometimes all it takes is a professional eyebrow wax from someone who knows what they are doing! It really can alter the look and shape of your face.
We talked about it briefly before, but it’s worth repeating again, you should not be afraid to use sunscreen all the time. Even when it is overcast, the sun’s rays are still penetrating and doing damage.
7. Drugstore Brands
You don’t have to break the bank to get good products, the majority of drugstore brands are perfectly suitable for achieving a good routine.
8. Eye Cream
A good quality eye cream, when used from a younger than expected age, can reduce the need for any kind of surgical intervention for many, many years.
9. Low Stress
At the end of the day, the less stressed and anxious you are, the less you will frown, and the fewer premature wrinkles you will have! Try to eliminate anything in your life that causes unnecessary stress.
