Go ahead. Smoke all you want. Get sun exposure and lead a stressful life. Let’s see if you’ll still have a healthy, vibrant skin in a few years.
You may have a youthful, glowing skin now but surprise, surprise! Your skin will not always be on its prime state. You are bound to experience skin aging whether you’re in your 20’s or in your 30’s. More, if you don’t start taking care of your skin now.
Here are some skin care essentials that you couldn’t afford to snub off:
Find an exfoliant that will best suit your skin type and use it once a week. If you have oily skin, using an exfoliant with glycolic or salicylic acid is your best shot. Meanwhile, if you have sensitive skin, scrubs found in microdermabrasives will work best for you.
An adequate amount of moisturizer will maintain the elasticity of your skin. Use moisturizers that have Vitamin A, copper, or Vitamin C. A good moisturizer is one that has sunscreen on it. An SPF 15 sunscreen will do.
Load up on antioxidants
Antioxidants are heavy on anti-aging concerns. A large proponent of these can be found in green teas and beta carotene. Antioxidants can be taken orally or topically.
Expend on eye creams
Eye creams are important because the eyes are where the first signs of aging normally appear. To prevent skin-aging around the eye area, use an eye cream daily. An eye cream with an SPF is the best bet even if you don’t go outdoors too often.
Retinoids are very effective in taking off dead skin cells. It is also known for supplying the skin with more collagen, thus making the skin look young. Retinoids are proven to reduce fine lines.
The skin is the largest organ of the body. It can be our best asset. But that will only happen if we take care of our skin to maintain its youthfulness and beauty.
