Surprised how effective the tips from part 1 were in combating old wrinkles, and preventing new ones from forming? Don’t be, because here are 5 more easy steps to help you to keep your skin looking younger and more radiant.
6. Discover the AHAs! –
AHA is a popular word in the skin care and skin ageing industry, but do you know what AHA does? AHAs or Alpha Hydroxy Acids are natural acids that remove the top layer of dead skin cells from your face. There are also stronger types of AHAs that can help your skin boost the production of collagen. These “peeling” effect reduces fine lines, the appearance of pores, and surface wrinkles.
There’s a catch however: applying AHAs can make your skin more sensitive to UV radiation, so wear sunscreen to help fight the harsh effects of the sun.
7. Use Soy –
Soy is another new and surprising ingredient that can help improve your skin’s appearance. There are studies that show that using soy on your face’s skin or taking soy supplements may protect and even, in some cases, heal some of the damage that the sun has done to your skin. Soy has also been known to even out skin tone and improve skin structure and firmness.
8. Put Vitamin C on Your Face –
Creams with Vitamin C in them can help fight wrinkles by increasing the skin’s production of collagen, adding protection from both UVA and UVB rays, and reducing redness and uneven skin tone. Choose skin products that have L-ascorbic acid (best for wrinkle relief). You can also use products that list their vitamin C ingredient as ascorbyl palmitate.
9. Drink Cocoa for Wrinkle-Free Skin –
For a delicious way to fight wrinkles, simply trade your favorite beverage or drink with cocoa. This wrinkle-reducing drink offers its special effect to two oxidants: epicathechin and catechin. These oxidants, which are found in high levels in cocoa, will protect your skin from sun damage, help with your skin’s hydration, improve blood flow to your skin cells, and makes the skin on your face smoother looking.
10. Do the Skin Basics –
Of course, no amount of prevention or cure will be able to help you effectively fight wrinkles if you don’t start with the skin care basics. In fact, it will be much easier for you to combat wrinkles if, at an early age, you begin avoiding the sun, wearing sunscreen (even on a cloudy day!), practice a healthy lifestyle (don’t smoke and sleep eight hours a day), and following an advanced anti-aging skin care regimen.
