In order to prevent facial aging, the first thing you need to do is to sleep on your back. This way, you are least likely to pull the delicate skin you may have on your face. However, if you can’t manage to sleep placing your back on your bed, you may use a pillow instead to minimize your skin getting pulled. Yet, keep in mind that the pillow should be made of silk.

The next effective facial skin anti aging tip is that you should pay attention to the area around your eyes as the skin is usually quite delicate there. Carefully wash the area around your eyes so that your skin won’t have to suffer from any pulling. Yet, if you want to apply any makeup or cream, you had better use your ring finger. This is because the ring finger gives a more delicate and lighter touch. Remember, you need to apply the makeup or cream going upwards circularly.
