How To Have Younger Looking Skin

Tending to your skin 4 minutes a day can help you to have younger looking skin. Most women strive to have healthy, glowing, younger looking skin. Yet many women don't take care of their skin. You must tend to your skin to have healthy skin. Here are things you can do to help you have younger looking skin. Things that will only take 2 minutes in the morning and two minutes in the evening. These are simple, basic things that you can do but you must be consistent if you want to achieve maximum results. The best part is that is doesn't cost a lot of money or time.

In The Morning

Wash Your Skin

Use a washcloth and cleanser. Don't reuse your washcloth. A washcloth can breed bacteria so be sure to use a clean one every time you wash your face.

Oily Skin: Use a cleanser with salicylic acid to clean out the pores.

Dry Skin: Use a creamy cleanser to put moisture back in. Avoid rinsing with very hot water, it will dry you out even more.

Apply An Antioxidant Cream

Use a moisturizer with ingredients like soy, green tea or vitamin C.

Use an eye cream with caffeine and peptide if you have dark circles under your eyes. The caffeine will help to constrict blood vessels and peptide will help thicken the skin

Use A Sunblock

Use a SPF 30, or high, sunblock every day. Use the sunblock even if the sun is not shining.

Do you apply sunblock to your face every day?

      I need a better skin care routine, but most products I like are too expensive. Good lens.

      I really need to get better at following your advice on sunblock. I live in the desert and we risk sun damage all year.

      Exfoliation has definitely been the best thing for my skin as I near 40, and of course, staying out of the sun. I'm fair skinned and had a few severe sunburns as a kid (I think we all did in the 70's) and although I went through a brief tanning bed phase in my 20's I've pretty much kept my face out of the direct sun. (and do apply sunscreen when I am in the sun).
