For most modern women, life is very complicated. From looking after children or grandchildren and holding down a career to taking care of the home and taking care of your body, there is always something else to do.
When you’re spending your time working out what to use to remove stains from clothes or ferrying little ones to and from extra-curricular activities, it’s understandable that long-term concerns like protecting your skin take a back seat. However, sometimes you have to prioritise things that are important even if they are less urgent – such as protecting your skin for the future to help you age gracefully. Whatever else you are doing, a bit of time spent on skin care each day will mean beautiful, glowing skin long-term.
Here are our five top tips on how to achieve just that.
This tip simply can’t be stressed enough. Sunscreen is the number one thing that will keep you looking young and healthy long-term. Find a cream that suits your natural skin type and apply every morning. Remember to apply it to any parts of you that will be exposed to the skin including face, arms and even feet. If you’re going to be outside for much of the day, you should reapply a few times as well. Be careful of your clothing though as no-one wants white greasy streaks left on their best outfits! If you’re are unlucky enough to transfer sunscreen from your skin to your clothes, then you can find out what to use to remove stains from clothes easily online.
Use a vitamin enriched nightly cream
Night creams can also be useful for keeping your skin looking glowing. Even if you’ve had a difficult day working out or cleaning the house, you can relax before bed by applying a night cream to your face. Look for products that include vitamins to support the skin’s natural regenerative functions.
To investigate more about this issue, we asked the specialist the CEO of Grandever company which is the first provider of natural and organic Moroccan ingredients for the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry and she said “it’s recommended to use creams that contain prickly pear seed oil and Argan oil due to its Tocopherols (Vitamin E) that helps soften the skin and restore the skin’s water lipid layer.”
Opt for anti-aging make-up products
Whatever you put on your face will have an impact on aging for good or bad so be sure to check whatever make-up you use. There are lots of products on the market now designed to help you look great – maybe for date night or a trip out for a bit of culture – while also taking care of your skin long-term. For example, mineral based foundations also act as sunblockers – handy!
It’s not only what you put on your body, but what you put in it that counts as well. Make sure to consume lots of vegetables, wholegrains and lean protein as this will ensure your body gets the vitamins and minerals it needs to keep you healthy and glowing.
Get regular facials
Finally, why not a little treat now and then? Having regular facials can keep your skin looking fresh. There are quite a lot of different facials available these days, so try a few different ones with a few different beauty therapists until you find what’s right for you.
Those are our top tips when it comes to ensuring healthy skin whatever your age. Remember to protect your skin with sunblock and treat it kindly both with what you apply and what you consume. By following these simple steps you’ll be glowing in no time.
