Year after year, our skin ages and at some point, you may suddenly notice that you look older than you did a month ago. Whether you’ve been neglecting your skincare routine, or maybe you’ve been skipping on your regular sleep, the reasons just add up quickly. That’s why you should stop and think for a second – what is it that you have been doing wrong? If nothing in particular comes to mind, we’ve got a few solutions that will take years of your face.
Practice good skincare
The number one way to gorgeous looking skin is a good skincare routine. You cannot expect your skin to look beautiful if you’re not taking enough care of it and skipping essential cleaning steps. Namely, you must clean your face every night before bed regardless of wearing makeup that day or not. While all the makeup products require thorough removal to unclog the pores and let the skin breathe, makeup-free skin also requires cleaning for other reasons. Makeup will protect the skin from dirt, grime and all the pollution, and if you don’t wear makeup, all those damaging factors will be on your face and potentially in your skin. Therefore, cleaning your face with a facial cleanser and scrubbing off filth with a facial scrub is of utmost importance. Use a facial toner to soothe the skin after washing your face.
Take care of your lips
You know those little wrinkles that tend to appear right in the corner of the lips? If you’ve been an avid smoker for years, you’re very familiar with them.
If not, and you’ve started noticing them, it means you’re slowly starting to approach middle age. However, with a simple solution such as injectable lip fillers, you can make your lips plumper and the wrinkles less noticeable. What’s more, make sure you always have a lip balm and a lip scrub nearby to avoid chapped dry lips but maintain a smooth kissable pout.
Natural remedies help too
The eye area seems to be the most problematic when it comes to looking older or younger. Red and puffy eyes may make you look older, but natural remedies can solve that problem easily. Get 2 thin slices of cold cucumber, lie down, and put a slice over each eye for 30 minutes. On the other hand, we have dark circles which can be due to a lack of sleep and avocado can successfully remove the signs of tiredness. Slices of ripe avocado under each eye or a paste of ground almonds and milk can be a perfect solution to your problem.
Get enough shut-eye
They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing. Getting enough zzz is essential for young-looking skin.
Our body replenishes and recharges overnight, which makes us feel energized and ready to conquer another working day. Just as enough sleep makes us look and feel well, the lack of it will wreak havoc on your look. Therefore, try to get between 6 and 8 hours of sleep every night, to always look your best.
Rely on makeup
Thank God for makeup, because when you can’t manage to follow all the previously mentioned tips, you can always cover those dark circles and pale complexion with a bit of maquillage. A colour corrector in the salmon shade is perfect for covering up blue to dark grey circles. After applying foundation, add a bit of light concealer with a yellow undertone to lock the lightness in place. Use a banana shade of setting powder to make your under-eye area lighter and use a light pink shade of blush to add freshness to your face.
Making your skin look younger has never been easier. With all these easy solutions, you can take years off your face in less than a week. So, choose your favourite solution, or better yet, combine all of them, and you’ll always look your best.
