If you are getting older and noticing wrinkles are starting to pop up, you should now start taking care of your skin better to help prevent more wrinkles and to help the current wrinkles fade away at least a little. To help you, below are two tips to keep your skin from aging so fast.
Exfoliate, Exfoliate and Exfoliate
Exfoliation is very important for your skin as it removes dead skin cells on the top surface level of your skin, as well as removes excel oil, dirt, and other debris. Exfoliating also increases the blood flow to your face which can make your skin look much healthier and more youthful.
Exfoliation is especially important for aging skin. This is because if you apply anti aging products on your face, they need to be able to penetrate your skin easily. If your skin has built up oils, dirt, etc., the products would have a difficult time penetrating so they would not work well for you.
An enzyme exfoliator would work well for you. This type of exfoliator is much gentler when compared to other types. This type of exfoliator does a great job at breaking down your dead and dulling skin cells. You should not exfoliate too much, however, or you could damage your skin. In most cases, approximately one to two times per week is enough.
Use Anti Aging Products
It is also important to use anti aging products. You will find many of these products at the store and online so it can be difficult to choose what would work best. Many of them make claims they will make your wrinkles disappear, but this simply is not true. The best thing to do is to talk with a dermatologist about what types of anti aging products work well.
Retinal is one of the best ingredients you can have in an anti aging product. Retinol is a form of Vitamin A and has been proven to decrease the signs of aging. This works by increasing the elasticity and thickness of your skin which in turns reduces the appearance of wrinkles on your face. You can find many over the counter anti aging products that contain retinol. To get the best benefit, however, you should see a dermatologist to have a retinal product prescribed for you. These products work much better as they are prescription strength.
Besides following these tips make sure you keep sunscreen on your face before you go outside. This is even true on cloudy days as you never know when the sun is going to peek out.
