As an anti aging skin care spa in Toronto, we offer many different options to help you look your best as the years roll on. But those are not the only possible anti-aging solutions.
Below you’ll find a number of different measures you can take at home in order to retain your youthful looks as long as possible.
This is a big one. The sun will age your skin more than every other factor listed in this article combined!
Sun exposure is the top cause of wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation changes, reduced elasticity, and much more. There’s a reason why we call certain skin pigmentation changes “sun spots”.
To combat this, avoid sun exposure as much as possible. I know it feels wonderful after such a long winter, but that’s the price you pay to maintain your youth. If you can’t avoid it, at least wear a sunblock with zinc oxide.
If you’re starting to notice sun spots on your skin, it’s time to use a retinol-based cream enriched with vitamin C. This can help reduce the sun’s effects on your skin.
Exfoliate Your Skin
Exfoliation means removing the outermost layer of skin on your face. That may sound painful, but it’s really not – your outermost skin layer is made up entirely of dead skin cells. By exfoliating your skin, you’re removing one of the barriers to whatever product you happen to be using, so as a result your product will be more effective.
A microdermabrasion is one of the best ways to exfoliate your skin, but you can also use a sonic cleansing brush or even a loofah for a more budget-friendly option.
Get The Right Sleep
Do you sleep on your side, or on your stomach? If so, you may be prematurely aging your skin.
When you sleep in these positions, you compress your face against your pillow which can lead to all sorts of skin imperfections, fine lines, wrinkles, and the like.
The solution to this is to sleep on your back, facing up. Not only will this keep your skin from folding, it will also give you clearer skin as you don’t end up rubbing against the bacteria and other impurities on your pillowcase.
Watch Your Posture
If you have a family history of varicose veins in your family, you may want to consider adjusting your sitting posture. By sitting cross-legged, you can put pressure on your veins, which blocks the flow of blood from your legs to your heart. This can cause them to stretch and expand once the blood does pump through, which can lead to the development of spider veins and varicose veins.
Make Sure Your Makeup Matches Your Skin Tone
One of the biggest things that can affect how aged you look is your makeup routine.
Our skin colour tends to change as we get older, so if you’re using the same tone of foundation you were using back in the 90’s, it may be time for a change. Consult a specialist at your local makeup counter for advice here.
While you’re at it, it’s a good idea to tone down eye makeup as you age. Dramatic eye makeup can be fun in your 20s and 30s, but as you age, more neutral hues will look better.
