Getting older is a privilege, but no one wants to look like they’re getting older. Developing a skincare routine can help you preserve your youthful appearance and help keep your skin healthy. There are a few essential elements of any good anti-aging skincare routine. However, the best skincare routine is always the one that you can commit to fully.
Maintaining beautiful, youthful skin does require work, but with the right products, the right skincare routine, great advice, and the best aesthetician, you can have beautiful, bright, healthy skin no matter how old you are.
Start incorporating the following elements into your anti-aging skincare routine to maintain youthful skin.
Every good skincare routine starts with sunscreen. Make sure that you pick a good broad-spectrum sunscreen that is at least 30 SPF. The type of sunscreen, chemical, physical, or a combination of both, really comes down to personal preference and what works and feels best on your skin. Regardless of your preference, you need to use a moisturizer with a sunscreen on your face, neck, and ears every day.
Sun damage causes wrinkles and sunspots, aging your skin and working against your skincare goals. Sunscreen will help protect your skin from aging and skin cancer. You will not regret investing in the right sunscreen.
Choosing a good cleanser is important to your long-term skin health. Reaching for a mild, gentle cleanser as opposed to abrasive or exfoliating cleanser is more than enough to keep your skin healthy and clean. As a part of your anti-aging skincare routine, you should avoid scrubbing your face hard-or over exfoliating. Additionally, when you’re choosing a cleanser, make sure it won’t strip your skin of necessary oils and leave you too dry. If you are oily though, using a toner to remove excess oil is helpful.
An antioxidant serum adds benefit to your morning sunscreen and will help protect your skin against free radicals that can cause inflammation and skin damage. A good aesthetician (like we have here at the Aesthetic & Dermatology Center) can help you select an antioxidant-packed serum that will work best for your skin.
Gentle Exfoliation and Growth Factors
If your face has a dull appearance, exfoliation is also an important part of keeping your skin looking bright and youthful. Make sure that you’re reaching for a gentle exfoliator and not over-exfoliating. When you do this, you need to be very careful that you’re not stripping your skin of it’s natural, necessary oils. A good aesthetician (like we have at the Aesthetic & Dermatology Center) will also determine if adding growth factors will help your skin maintain that youthful glow
The most important part
The most important part of any skincare routine is your ability to stick with it. You can have the best skincare products available, but if you don’t stick with it and stay dedicated to putting in the work, you won’t get the results you want.
