Reverse The Clock - Anti-Ageing Skin Care Tips
Ageing is inevitable, but signs of ageing do not have to be. As you grow older, your body undergoes a lot of changes and some of these are reflected on your skin. Your skin loses its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles start to appear, and your under-eye area looks dark and sunken in.
The skincare products you used in your teens and early twenties will not be of much use once you are older. By adding a few new products to your skincare regime like sheet masks, anti-wrinkle creams, and under-eye creams, you can help reverse the clock and slow down the signs of ageing. Here are a few simple tips to delay the onset of mature skin and preserve your youthful glow for longer.
1. Protect Your Skin From The Sun
Regardless of your skin type and concerns, an SPF is non-negotiable. Even though moderate amounts of sunshine is essential to synthesize vitamin D, prolonged exposure to the sun wreaks havoc on your skin. And when you are out in the sun, you tend to squint your eyes more which also causes wrinkles (crow’s feet) around the eyes. Use wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses to shield your eyes and protect the delicate skin around them. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
2. Apply A Skin Tightening Sheet Mask Twice A Week
Sheet masks are no longer created just to hydrate and moisturise your skin. Along with giving your skin an intense boost of moisture, sheet masks can also brighten, purify, and tighten your skin. Mature skin starts losing its bounce and elasticity and can look saggy and tired. Firm up your skin with a skin-tightening sheet mask. We at Garnier recommend the Ageless White Serum Sheet Mask. The sheet mask is formulated to have anti-ageing properties that leave you with plump and younger-looking skin in just 15 minutes. The Grapeseed extracts and Hyaluronic Acid in the sheet mask help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while firming up your skin. The ultra-nourishing sheet mask revives saggy and ageing skin to uncover a youthful-radiance.
3. Start Using Anti-Ageing Creams
Don’t wait until you have deep-set wrinkles and fine lines to start using anti-ageing skincare products. Anti-ageing or anti-wrinkle creams help bring back the vitality in your tired and mature skin. Try the Garnier Wrinkle Lift Anti-Ageing Cream to tackle some of the most tiresome signs of ageing like wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of firmness. Enriched with Pro-Retinol to increase cellular turnover, the anti-ageing cream visibly reduces wrinkles and fine lines while the active essence of cherries combined with bilberry extract to help firm up your skin.
Apply your anti-wrinkle cream twice every day, morning and night, using small circular motions. Massage the cream into your skin to further boost the circulation to your face to lift your facial muscles and boost the skin’s elasticity.
4. Your under-eyes need some extra TLC
The skin around your eyes is thinner than the skin on the rest of your face, making this area extremely delicate and fragile. Your face creams are too thick for your eye area. Use specially formulated under-eye creams and gels to nourish the skin. Even if you have oily skin, your under-eye area could get dry and uncomfortable. Use a hydrating product like the Light Complete Eye Roll-On by Garnier. This sleek-looking roll-on carries a potent formula enriched with Pro-Vitamin B5 to hydrate and boost the area around your eyes so you look and feel fresh. The cooling sensation of the Garnier eye roll-on helps massage your under-eye areas to reduce puffiness and is perfect for soothing tired eyes.
You don’t need to get poked by needles or try cosmetic procedures to maintain your youthful skin. The key to delaying the signs of ageing is to start taking care of your skin early on. Apart from the anti-ageing skincare tips mentioned above, remember to hydrate well and eat a well-balanced and nutritious diet for healthy-looking skin that glows from within. You can’t stop your skin from ageing completely, but why not slow down the process for as long as you can!
