Daily Swaps For Younger Looking Skin

As we age, we start to worry more about the look of our skin, and how to stay looking forever 29. But, with kids, work, and a busy life, it can be difficult to find time to add extra steps to our skincare routine. While there are specialized creams and lotions to prevent the look of wrinkles and fine lines, these can cost hundreds of dollars and take time that we don’t have to apply. Instead of adding more stress to your daily routine with extra beauty products and time consuming steps, try these few swaps that can help your body naturally stop the effects of aging.

Moisturiser

While we all have that special moisturiser we have been using for years, as your skin ages, your skin’s needs change. By swapping to a moisturizer specifically made to help aging skin, you can help reverse the look of aging. While there are hundreds of anti-aging lotions out there, you can click here for more information from Analyze That who review the best brands of anti-aging moisturisers. It is important to check reviews like this, as some anti-aging creams just focus on the wrinkles and fine lines and do not actually moisturise. Without proper moisture, unfortunately, your skin will dry out which then can cause new wrinkles to form. Ensuring that whatever cream you choose will include some sort of moisturising effect as well will make sure that your skin stays hydrated and looking young.

Another addition to this moisturiser is that it should have added SPF. While we think about the effects of the sun’s rays when we spend lots of time outside, like at the beach, many do not realise that these effects are still harmful with a 10 minute trip to the local supermarket. While clothing may cover more skin than your bathing suit at the beach, your face is constantly uncovered, and therefore always in direct sunlight. Making sure your chosen moisturiser also contains a high SPF, at least 30, will keep your face protected from the aging effects of the sun.

Eat More Fat

No, we are not saying you should go binge on french fries and mozzarella sticks. However, by adding more healthy fats to your diet, like Omega-3s, your body will get better nutrients. These healthy fats are essential to helping your skin stay strong, moisturized, and elastic. This elasticity allows your skin to move and stretch and bounce right back to its original position. One of the main causes of wrinkles is the loss of this elasticity, meaning when you rub your face, instead of it bouncing right back, it starts to sag or wrinkle. Swapping two meals a week to include salmon or other fatty fish will help increase your Omega-3 intake, allowing you skin to get the nutrients it needs to stay looking younger.

Feel Fancy with Better Pillowcases While this may seem like a myth, splurging on silk or satin pillowcases could help your skin stay younger looking. During sleep, you naturally move and roll in bed. With other fabrics, like polyester or cotton, your skin tends to catch and pull slightly during sleep. As stated above, your skin naturally loses its elasticity as you age. Therefore, this pulling could cause your face to wrinkle more easily. With silk or satin, there is less friction between the fabric and your skin, allowing your face to move more freely during sleep, and keeps your face looking younger. This simple trick allows your face to have less strain while you catch up on those much needed hours of sleep.

Stay Younger Without Added Effort

Overall, we all know keeping our skin looking young can be a whole ordeal. But for busy moms, this added pressure to keep young skin can be tough. For those without extra time, it is important, instead of finding tips and tricks to add to your already too long routine, to find swaps that you can do to help reverse the look of aging without adding any extra time. Swapping your moisturizer for one with SPF and anti-aging agents, eating more Omega-3s and other healthy fats, and getting better pillow cases will all help to fight the effects of aging that creep up on you.
