Yes, making our skin look younger without medical procedures is possible nowadays. Still, the sheer number of products and methods proposed online is intimidating, and some of these are plain myths.
We bring you insider tips from an expert dermatologist on how to most effectively slow down face skin aging.
In the morning or during the day, wash your face twice, with an oil-based cleanser first and then with a water-based cleanser. This kind of double cleansing has proven power to preserve collagen, the wrinkle-preventing protein that occurs naturally in the body.
Washing your face before bed
Don’t forget to wash your face before going to sleep every night. Washing the face before bed provides an important opportunity for your skin to regenerate over the night.
Exfoliating is important in order to get rid of dead skin. However, too much exfoliation can be damaging to the skin. Exactly what “too much” means depends on skin type, so make sure to consult an expert.
Regular use of anti-aging toners moisturizes the skin and helps to balance skin tone, while also firming the skin over time.
Exposure to sun, especially in the summer months, is an enemy of youthful skin. Use sunscreen whenever you plan to spend more than 20 minutes in the sun. Never go to the beach without sunscreen on your face.
Prioritize sleep at all costs. Insufficient sleep makes cortisol levels shoot up, which leads to various skin conditions and speeds up the appearance of wrinkles.
