Let’s face it, we all get older. You can kick, cry, and scream that you don’t want to say good-bye to your youthful appearance, but that won’t stop the calendar from moving forward. However, by taking a proactive approach and starting an anti-aging routine when you’re young, you can hold on to those youthful years just a little bit longer. We’ve taken the liberty of breaking out simple routines based on age to help you get started.
– If you’re in your 20’s
Lucky you to still have a youthful face. However, that youth can also be a curse if you don’t take the time to think about anti-aging. Right now you should be wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to save yourself a lot of grief later one. Additionally, skip the tanning beds. Self tanners are getting better than ever and they won’t give you wrinkles.
– If you’re in your 30’s
While in your 30’s, water may quickly become your best friend. Keeping yourself hydrated is one of the easiest ways to keep skin looking young. In addition, make sure that you’re using a daily moisturizer and taking plenty of vitamin D (at least 1,000 IUs per day).
– If you’re in your 40’s
Anti-aging in your 40’s isn’t just about healthy skin; it’s also about a healthy you. Be sure that you’re eating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and cut back on the processed sugar. Regular exercise will also give you a healthy glow. If you haven’t started yet, then it’s time to use retinol to minimize fine lines around your eyes.
– If you’re in your 50’s
This can be a busy age where sleep takes a back seat to higher priorities, but this will wreak havoc on your skin. Make sure you carve at least 8 hours of shuteye a night for yourself. Additionally, consider start using hyaluronic acid if you’re noticing fine lines around your mouth; this product will help hide them.
– If you’re in your 60’s
Starting to worry about anti-aging in your 60’s isn’t too little too late; after all, it’s never too late to start taking proper care of your skin. At this age, the right eye make up can hide drooping eyelids and use products with white or green tea extracts to help fight swelling. Additionally, check that the air in your home isn’t too dry; the lack of moisture is bad for your skin.
