As someone gets older, they will have to spend a little more time taking care of their skin to keep a healthy, youthful look. Now is the perfect time to start a skin care regime that will leave you looking refreshed, and feeling better about the appearance of your skin.
Before you can start any skin care work, you need to be aware of your skin type. Once you know this, you will be able to find products that are specially formulated to help you.
You should never use a body lotion on your face. Lotion that is meant for your body is going to be thick and filled with a lot of oils that if used on your face will cause break outs. Buy a facial moisturizer and you will find a lot less problems occur.
The sun is going to do a lot of damage to your skin, and you are now old enough to take some responsibility for this. If you know that you are going to be outdoors, make sure that you are using sunscreen. Many facial moisturizers also come with sunscreen in them, so this is one less step you will need to worry about.
If you notice that more wrinkles are coming up as you age, there is something that you can do. There are many companies that make wrinkle reducers, and you want to follow the directions when using them.
Along with creams and lotions, the food that you eat will affect your skin. Chose foods that are high in anti-oxidants to keep a fresh look to your skin.
There is nothing anyone can do about getting older, though you have read some things that you can do about keeping up your skin’s appearance. Take a little time out of your day to apply what you have learned, and you will be glad that you did.
