It’s not a secret: Fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin are three tell-tale signs of skin aging. Fine lines and wrinkles can develop early on in one’s life and become more prominent over time. Sagging skin, when skin appears less taut and hollow, typically will develop when you are older, for most it will be around your 40s. The development of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin all relate to the normal passage of time your body and skin experiences. These signs of skin aging may simply reflect intrinsic aging factors, but, external factors, like UV exposure and air pollution, can also speed up the aging process. Your skin will also experience more dryness as the years pass and that lack of moisture can worsen existing fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Pay attention to the areas that are already showing signs of aging and protect your skin against further external damage by keeping these five skin renewal tips in mind:
Skin renewal tip # 1: Protect your skin with SPF. Sun exposure really is the root cause of many signs of skin aging, including fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Women with darker complexions may first notice uneven skin tone before these other signs of skin aging, but this simple rule still stands for everyone: Sun protection is your most important weapon to preserve your skin’s youthful integrity. The sun wears down your skin’s natural fibers that keep it plump and full, this makes skin more likely to fold, crease and sag.
Sunscreen may not be able to reverse skin damage, but it can help prevent against the deepening appearance of existing lines and wrinkles. The best line of defense is to apply SPF with broad spectrum protection everyday. Broad spectrum protection will help shield your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Reapply when necessary, especially if you tend to sweat or if you expect to get wet. Look for a daytime moisturizer with SPF that can also help smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, like RevitaLift® Triple Power™ Day Lotion Moisturizer SPF 20.
Skin renewal tip # 2: Cleanse in the morning and at night. It’s important to cleanse your face of dirt, oils and sweat that can buildup throughout your day and while you sleep. Consider double cleansing at night, this simply means that you will first concentrate on removing your makeup and you then focus on cleansing your skin in general. They are gentle ways to remove makeup that can be more hydrating than a traditional toner high in alcohol. Try using a towelette, like RevitaLift® Radiant Smoothing Wet Cleansing Towelettes, or micellar water to remove makeup and then follow up by washing your face with a cleanser. Look for a cream cleanser like, Age Perfect® Nourishing Cream Cleanser, which can be more nourishing to dry, skin.
Skin renewal tip # 3: Moisturize after cleansing. Moisturizing should always be a part of any good skin care routine, but it is especially important when addressing fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Moisturize your skin while it is still damp after cleansing – this can help your skin lock in that added moisture. Follow cleansing with a serum that will hydrate skin, try RevitaLift® Triple Power™ Concentrated Serum. Then apply an eye cream and a moisturizer that has Pro-xylane and hyaluronic acid like RevitaLift® Triple Power™ Deep-Acting Moisturizer. Finally, seal all of your anti-aging ingredients and added hydration into your skin by applying a facial oil, which will act as a barrier to keep the good stuff – like ingredients from your anti-aging products and added moisture – in and the bad stuff – like dirt from air pollution – out.
Skin renewal tip #4: Exfoliate. When you exfoliate you are sloughing away a pile up of dead skin cells that may have mixed with makeup residue, dirt, sweat and oils that can collect on your skin throughout the day. Exfoliating as a normal part of your weekly skin care routine will help all of your other skin care products work more efficiently. Clearing the surface layer of your skin will help remove build up from your pores, creating a clearer pathway for your skin care products. Your serums, creams and treatments will have an easier time working on the skin’s outer layer if their path is less obstructed. Depending upon your exfoliating method, most people can exfoliate two to three times a week. Some though, if using a gentle a method, may be able to do so daily. Consult your dermatologist for their recommendation before choosing an exfoliating method and routine, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Skin renewal tip #5: Eat Mindfully. Try to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body and skin hydrated. Also, consider a healthy diet that could include foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon, nuts, flaxseed oil and leafy vegetables and foods rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and E will help give your skin a healthy boost. Try adding tomatoes and berries into your salads to give you diet a little antioxidant boost.
Skin renewal tip #6: Find time to rest and relax. Stress and lack of sleep can take a toll on your skin too. Repetitive facial expressions like frowning can cause facial tension. Regular facial tension can cause some fine lines and wrinkles to develop and deepen existing lines and creases. Try using a facial mask at least once a week or find some other time to unwind and care for your skin, like with a detoxifying face mask or an overnight deep hydration mask to wake up with skin that looks refreshed. You may be able to relieve some stress and help your skin at the same time.
Fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin are a normal part of anyone’s skin journey. Still, it’s understandable if you’d rather keep these signs of skin aging at bay. You can preserve your skin’s natural beauty by sticking to a skin care routine that will address your existing concerns and put off the development of further signs of skin aging. Take care of yourself and some of your skin aging concerns will be cared for too.
