Age sneaks up on us. First, you may feel a little less energetic. Then you start noticing the numbers on the bathroom scale creeping up. Eventually, you don’t like partying late like you used to. Suddenly, before you know what’s happened, the face you see in the mirror every morning has aged overnight.
Thankfully, all is not lost. By starting a better beauty routine now, you can help yourself look younger in as little as two months.
It doesn’t matter if you’re old, young, male, or female, everyone should apply sunscreen first thing in the morning. While this lotion technically won’t make you look younger, dermatologists say it’s the best thing you can do to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer. For best results, use a sunscreen specifically designed for your face that is combined with a moisturizer. Additionally, the sunscreen should be rated SPF 30 or higher and listed as “broad spectrum.”
Junk food isn’t just bad for your waistline; it can also cause you to age faster too. However, it’s not just about the excessive amount of calories in these foods, but the total lack of important vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. If you’re really serious about looking younger, then what you eat needs to be part of the effort.
You’ve heard it before, and you’re going to hear it again: exercise is good for you. Sure, it can help you live a longer and healthier life, but it’s also good for your skin. After all, exercise gives you a healthy glow, makes your face look younger when excess fat is burned off, and reduces wrinkle causing stress. Just remember, if you’re going to exercise outside, put on sunscreen first.
Treat age spots
You may notice that your face, arms, and shoulders, while once clear and evenly toned, are now speckled with little brown spots. These age spots are caused by too much exposure to the sun. Generally, they are medically harmless, but this doesn’t mean that you must live with the blemishes forever. A good concealer is the answer for immediate results, but there are beauty products that can permanently diminish or eliminate these spots.
