Wrinkles may be a sign of honor – a symbol of a life well-lived. But that doesn’t mean you want to display every flaw on your skin for everyone to see. You can cover them with makeup or concealer, but this is ultimately just a short-term fix that can even exacerbate the problem. Rather than do that, use these tips to keep your wrinkles at bay.
A facial massage can be just the thing to clear away some of the imperfections near the surface of your skin. See, a vigorous rubdown for about 15 minutes each day can help press the blood through the capillaries in your upper dermis. This helps the skin pass on toxins and other chemicals built up over time. That in turn can help make your skin appear younger and more resilient.
A massage can and should be relaxing. If it causes you pain or discomfort, odds are you are doing something wrong. The motion should be soft and regular and you don’t need to do it for too long to get results.
Keeping your skin clean and moist can also help keep your skin looking flawless. You should find a mild soap you can use on your face once per day when you shower or bathe. After bathing, apply a moisturizer to your face in order to trap in the beneficial water that can keep your skin young looking.
Use a good sunscreen whenever you intend to spend more than a few minutes outdoors during the day. This is as true in the winter as it is during the summer months. The sun’s UVA and UVB rays can cause irreparable damage to your skin, but it only take a minute or so to make sure that doesn’t happen.
A final means of attaining skin health is to drink lots of water. Water is key to keeping the body (and the skin) healthy. Your body is made up of lots of water, and keeping that moisture in check is a successful way of keeping yourself well-off.
Beyond the water, you also need plenty of essential nutrients to keep yourself healthy. That means fruits, vegetables and a balanced diet. Cut out the sweets, these only lead to damage of the sort that can affect your skin.
These basic rules for healthy living are all relatively simple and uncontroversial. You should find yourself looking younger and healthier within just a short time of beginning such a regimen.
