We all want to look our best. I want to share my personal anti-aging tips. It’s easy to start these habits which will actually help you achieve a more youthful look. Take a peek and see if there are any skincare and lifestyle changes you might put to use on your journey to Decide Today How Tomorrow Looks™.
1: I do my best to limit sugar and carbs. I must confess, this is the hardest for me. I have learned that refined sugar and alcohol consumption can age skin. I strive to reduce my daily intake for younger-looking skin—also hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Healthy eating can make a big difference in how you feel and how you look. Eating and drinking starchy, sugary, or simple carbs—like potatoes, rice, chips, or crackers—can cause glycation, a form of damage to your skin’s collagen. I do my best to eat a well-balanced diet with an emphasis on fresh fruits and veggies, and I drink plenty of water, every day.
2: I have become a faithful back sleeper since I learned that face planting will create a wrinkle. I had to work at this to develop the habit. When you sleep on your back, you avoid creating a crease that can become a permanent wrinkle.
3: It’s all about being consistent. I keep my skin clean and moisturized. I seldom wear makeup other than eyeliner, mascara and lipstick. People tell me my skin looks fabulous and I love the compliments that I get! What you do every day will have a greater benefit for your skin’s appearance than almost any procedure you could do in a doctor’s office on an occasional basis.
4: I wash my face every night before bed. First, I remove eye make-up with REDEFINE Eye Cloths. I have my routine to clean, tone and moisturize. I alternate products between the REDEFINE and REVERSE. My top skincare concern changes with the seasons, so I use the specific product for my current concern. I know my skin will stay looking clear and young with faithful use of the products that are right for your skin concern. Nightly cleansing is important for everyone because pollution has been shown to cause free radical formation and premature aging.
5: I always, always, always use sun screen. I never go outside without protection. I love that my products have dual protection of broad spectrum sunscreen and moisturizer. Since I live at the beach, I get exposed to a lot of rays. I use hats and UV protective clothing. I protect my hands while driving with REDEFINE Age Shield Hand Balm. I love the simple applicator and I keep it in my purse. Another way to protect my complexion is with Mineral Peptides powder with SPF 20. I load my brush with powder for a quick dusting later in the day. The peptides protect against environmental pollution as well as sun.
6: I keep my stress levels down. I meditate and do water aerobics. Keeping and maintaining positive thoughts impacts every aspect of my life…no matter what the present reality is. Not stressing is key. When our bodies respond to stress, blood, nutrients and oxygen are directed to vital areas such as our legs and away from the organs such as skin, creating dark under-eye circles and an ashen or sallow appearance.
