Quick Tips for Youthful Skin: Anti-Aging Skin Care

Jul 11, 2008
Isn't it interesting how young people can't wait to get older and older people want nothing more than to be younger - or least to look younger! Anti-aging skincare products are a billion dollar a year industry as people, both men and women, strive for that youthful appearance.

While we wait for someone to discover the fountain of youth, there are a few quick tips both women and men can follow as part of an anti-aging skin care regimen to improve the tone and texture of the skin as well as help fight those wrinkles and blemishes.

One important part of any anti-aging skin care program is cleaning your face. It's important to do this daily, to remove dirt, pollutants, makeup and other irritants. As we sleep, our bodies renew and re-energize themselves. That includes the skin, so cleansing before you sleep is important.

However, if you're weighed down with dirt and clogged pores your body is at a disadvantage. But when cleansing, you need to avoid regular soaps and other harsh products as part of your anti-aging skin care regimen.

These soaps that you use on your hands and in the shower are far too rough on your skin and will dry your face and cause flaking. This dryness is part of what contributes to wrinkles and other blemishes. You need to use cleansers that are made for your face and that won't be this harsh.

Moisturizing is of course a major part of any anti-aging skin care regimen. Everything we do during the day strips moisture from our skin, especially as we're exposed to harsh weather and other elements.

Stress is a part of everyones life and you may notice that a friend or neighbor who is under a good amount of stress looks a lot older than he/she actually is. Stress causes you to tense up and when you strain your facial muscles as well, which draws even more moisture out of your skin. A daytime anti-aging skin cream is something everyone should use to help protect your face from the elements and for women it acts as a protective barrier between your skin and makeup. A nighttime anti-aging skin cream will help your body with the natural process of repairing its self.

A healthy overall body is another key to a good ant-aging skin care routine. A healthy body has healthy skin, so drink plenty of water and get routine exercise. You should also make sure you get enough sleep and maintain a good diet. You'll see the results in you feel and in your appearance.

If you neglect your body, it'll show up in the condition of your skin. Remember that no product can help you look young if you're unhealthy, dehydrated, or not getting enough rest. You can't make up for being in bad condition by buying any cosmetic product.

Very few wrinkle creams or lotions will make up for these things. So take care of yourself and be sure to cleanse and moisturize your skin regularly; this is the best anti-aging skin care there is.
