Tip #1: Moisturise
Whether you’re 17 or 70, you need to get into the habit of applying moisturiser on a daily basis. If you’re worried about wrinkles, dark circles or puffiness, you may also want to consider adding a night cream and/or under eye cream to your routine. There are several different types of moisturiser out there, so make sure you pick one that is most suited to your skin type. At first it may take a little getting used to, but you’ll thank us in years to come.
Tip #2: Wear Sunscreen
The sun’s rays can cause severe damage to your skin and are the leading cause of early aging. It’s important to try and minimise your exposure to the sun and ensure that you’re properly protected whenever you’re outside. There are a number of products on the market from which to choose – the simplest way is to use an SPF-enhanced moisturiser.
Tip #3: Stop Smoking
Smoking really takes a toll on your skin. Besides giving you dull, ashen appearance, it also affects the production of collagen – so over time, you’re more susceptible to dry, saggy and wrinkled skin.
Tip #4: Drink Plenty of Water
Water is used by the body to flush out toxins and waste. Drink up and you’ll see a noticeable difference to your skin.
Tip #5: Don’t Use Regular Soap to Wash Your Face
Regular body soap is just too harsh and drying to be used on the face. Instead, get your hands on a quality face wash/facial cleanser that suits your skin type and use it every day.
