Although we swear by our favorite products to stave off the signs of aging, it’s essential to take a holistic approach to skin care. In other words, lifestyle choices can be just as important as what you put on your face. Read on to see which simple changes you can make to keep your skin looking young and beautiful.
Before you head out the door on sunny days, be sure to grab your shades, a brimmed hat or both! Excess sun exposure leads to photo-aging, not only on your face, but also the delicate skin around the eyes. Be sure to use RevitaLift Eye Cream and load up on sun protection with an SPF-infused face cream like RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming SPF 30 Day Lotion to help block out both UVA and UVB rays.
Stay Hydrated—Inside and Out
It’s no secret that drinking plenty of water is great for your health. It will also help keep skin supple, hydrated and more radiant. Shoot for around 6-8 glasses of H20 per day and be sure to down an extra glass for every caffeinated or alcoholic drink. Be sure to keep skin hydrated from the outside, too, using a moisturizer that is formulated for your skin type. We love Youth Code SPF 30 Day Lotion.
Get Your Beauty Rest
It’s actually true—getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking its best. For a healthy, glowing complexion, make logging your eight hours a priority. It will do wonders for your overall health and mood, too! Tip: skin renews itself while you sleep, so take advantage of this downtime and use a product specially formulated for night time use, like RevitaLift® Night Cream.
Did you know that smoking actually ages skin? Nicotine restricts blood vessels, depletes skin of oxygen and essential nutrients and increases production of an enzyme that breaks down collagen in the skin. The result? Premature wrinkles, sagging and dullness. Kick the habit now to keep your complexion looking youthful and vibrant. Already seeing some signs of aging? Add a more potent product to your regimen (we like Revitalift® Double Lifting) to help restore elasticity.
You may have heard that there’s no connection between diet and skin issues, but current research shows just the opposite. Indulging in too much refined sugar and carbs can trigger a process called glycation, which leads to skin aging (and, some think, even acne). Swap your standby sugary sweeteners for healthier versions, like agave nectar, honey or molasses. Also, antioxidant- and Omega-rich foods and supplements are part of a skin-saving diet. To tackle signs of aging, add a concentrated boost to your skin care regimen with a serum like Youth Code™ Serum Intense.
