Apply sunscreen every day:

Too much sun exposure is dangerous as it can lead to skin cancer which is why regular sunscreen use and sun protection is so important. Sun protection is also the most effective way to prevent skin aging, thus this is a tip you should start implementing asap. Using sunscreen on your face and neck every day can help prevent the formation of early signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and sagging. Our sunscreen tips are to use a sunscreen made specifically for your face as it won’t contain anything that might cause skin irritation and always remember to include your neck when applying sunscreen to your face.

Get restful sleep: 

Ever notice how bright and glowing your skin can look after a good nights sleep? That’s because there’s actual science behind the fact that getting a good nights sleep (think 7-9 hours) is not only good for your mind and body but also for your skin too! When you sleep, your skin repairs itself meaning that it repairs UV damage from the day and it also builds collagen. Both of these actions can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines or prevent them from forming.

Hydrate:

Hydrating yourself well can do wonders for your skin as dehydrated skin can cause a whole bunch of issues such as acne and aging. Hydrating your skin through drinking water is a vital step but it’s just the beginning. Another way you can hydrate your skin is by eating hydrating foods such as watermelon, strawberries, oranges, cucumbers and lettuce. You can also use a humidifier to hydrate your skin, especially while you sleep.

Moisturize:

Although the use of moisturizer alone does not prevent skin aging, it can definitely help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It can also help make your skin glow and look brighter and who wouldn’t want that!
