25 Anti-Aging Skincare Tips

  1. Always wear sunscreen when you are in the sun.  And avoid being in direct sunshine from 10:00am-2:00pm, where a hat or sit under an umbrella.
  2. Wash your face every night before bed, never sleep with makeup on.
  3. Use an eye cream every night starting at age 20.  And use your ring finger to gently apply it.
  4. Give yourself a facial massage.  This stimulates blood and oxygen circulation, which means more collagen production.  It also tightens and tones facial muscles, resulting in your skin looking lifted.
  5. Moisturize your face and body every day.  Applying lotion right after your shower will seal in moisture.
  6. Drink lots of water and limit caffeine.  Staying hydrated is so important for the body and skin.
  7. Don’t smoke.  And avoid second hand smoke as well.
  8. Limit alcohol intake.  Alcohol dehydrates the skin and causes wrinkles.  Water down your drinks with club soda or drink a glass of water in between each glass of wine.
  9. Use products with retinol or glycolic.  Both have anti-aging properties, including reducing and preventing wrinkles, scarring and more.
  10. Sleep a minimum of 7 hours every night.  The body needs adequate rest to restore and replenish.
  11. Take your vitamins and eat a healthy diet.  There is not a product or quick fix that can make up for an unhealthy diet.
  12. Exercise, you don’t have to do strenuous work outs; just get moving at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes.  Aim to get your heart rate up and work up a sweat.  Sweating flushes out toxins and increases blood flow.  Having a healthy body will also give you healthy skin.
  13. Exfoliate 1-3 times a week. This gets off the dead, dull skin cells to reveal new & fresh skin underneath.
  14. Use a daytime serum and/or night time serum.  Let the serum do the work for you all day or at night while you are sleeping.
  15. Never go braless, even around the house at least wear a shelf bra tank or day bra.  Don’t let gravity give you saggy boobs.
  16. Avoid drinking from straws.  Sucking on a straw causes wrinkles around the mouth.
  17. Exfoliate your body with coffee grounds.  The caffeine helps to stimulate blood flow, reduces cellulite and stretch marks.
  18. Apply a hand cream every night before bed.  Hands show age faster than anywhere else.
  19. Do not pick or pull your skin.  Picking and pulling causes scarring and wrinkles.
  20. Squinting into the sun causes crows feet, always wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
  21. Exfoliate and apply a lip treatment to your lips often.  Keeping your lips plump and hydrated keeps you looking younger.
  22. Don’t neglect your neck and décolleté.  Cleanse and moisturize the same as your face.  Look at your neck, typically you will see 1 distinct line for every 10 years of your life. (ex: if you are 30 years old you should have 3 lines on your neck)
  23. If you have wrinkles that really bother you, get botox.  There is only so much reversal you can get from a product.  If you are completely unhappy with wrinkles on your face go ahead and get botox.
  24. Prevention!  You are never to young to start a healthy skincare regimen, diet and lifestyle.  Make decisions today that your future self will be proud of.
  25. Laugh every day, it’s medicine for the soul.
