Posted September 27, 2019 by Sue Prichard

As we get older, the signs of ageing show up even more prominently. Looking after your health is crucial, but so is looking after your skin. What are the best ways to look after your skin?

Use the right products

As easy as it is to buy cheap products, if you start to succumb to more issues as you get older it’s important to pick the right ones. Getting a moisturizer for dry skin is one of the basic, but go for the good stuff. 

Don’t sleep in your makeup

If you want to block your pores, then go to bed with your makeup on! It’s always best to have a good night time routine to take your makeup off.

Pick the right cleanser

We can make a mistake in thinking that all cleansers are okay for our skin. As you get older, you’ve got to use the right cleanser for your skin type.

Change your sun care routine 

You should wear sunscreen on a daily basis to protect yourself from UV rays, but also make sure that the products you use contain hydrating formulas. These are the things that will nourish your skin.

Keep hydrated

Your skin needs an adequate amount of water to keep it looking young and healthy. If you get dehydrated, you can see the effects show up in your skin. Make it a habit, as you wake up, to have a pint of water.

Use your products correctly

With something like a cleanser, it needs to stay on for up to 60 seconds to soak into your skin.

Never rub your face dry

Always pat your face dry, with a dry towel, because if you start to rub your skin, this will increase your chances for wrinkles.

Move out of your skincare routine on occasion

It’s easy to fall into a pattern, but it’s best to alternate between serums or lotions and moisturisers. Making sure that your skin gets the various antioxidants required through different products is crucial.

Use retinoids

They do wonderful things to your skin so make sure you find a product that contains retinoids because it can increase cell turnover and unclog your pores.

It’s not just about the face

We can neglect the neck. After do you hate about your neck can begin to look quite old but there are numerous neck firming exercises to use. Also, be sure to use moisturiser and sunscreen on your neck.

Don’t neglect your hands

One of the tell-tale signs of ageing is your hands. Make sure you give them as much care and attention as your face.

Don’t be too vigorous with your routine

Be careful not to strip your skin of its natural oils. Use the right products, but not too much and alternate serums.

Exfoliate

To do this regularly to remove dead skin cells, and choose a gentle one.

Avoid the tanning bed

If you want to have a leathery-looking appearance, the tan bed is the way to do it. If you really want to get a bronzed body, you should go out in the sun, but not for too long!

Use a moisturiser

You also need to make sure it has an SPF of at least 15. It’s always best to use two different moisturisers because your skin has different needs during the day and night.

Protect yourself from the sun

Make sure you wear a hat to cover up and don’t go out during the middle of the day when the sun is at its strongest.

Get some sleep

Yes, it’s all about beauty sleep! This is the big one. During your sleep, your cells start to repair themselves, so go to bed, now!
