10 Best Anti-aging Tips

1.  Your skin is the largest organ in the body and acts as an important barrier to protect you from the environment.  The hazards it protects you from include:
  • Sun's harmful rays 
  • Winter's cold and summer's heat
  • Bacteria and virus that daily may have an opportunity to attack your body
  • Trauma 
Just from the few examples above, it's easy to see that it is vitally important to keep your skin healthy.  To help protect your skin from over exposure of the sun's rays, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen.  Protection from UVA rays are crucial, since these are the ones that penetrate deep into the skin and cause collagen and elastin damage.  These are the layers that help prevent aging.  The best sunscreen ingredients to look for are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.  These two super hero sunscreen ingredients are reported to protect again UVA and UVB rays (rays that cause burning).  Cleure has a natural sunscreen SPF 30 with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide for all skin types.  For makeup, look for mineral makeup with either zinc oxide, titanium dioxide or both to help with sun protection. 

2.  We all know how soft a baby's skin is and that aging skin may have many wrinkles, sags and appear dry with age spots and dark circles under the eyes.  As we age, the skin becomes thinner and dries.  How severely your skin ages depends partly on how you contribute to its wellness or deterioration.  Genetics certainly plays a part in how your skin ages, but so do controllable factors that can cause wear and tear such as:
  • Smoking
  • Poor nutrition
  • Sun exposure
  • Neglect or poor skin care
Dry skin or at best combination skin, is typical as you age.  Anti-aging moisturizer that works the best and recommended by dermatologists, should include anti-oxidants.  Anti-oxidants include vitamins A, E and C.  They help fight free radicals, which are the culprits that promote aging.  Use a rich hydrating anti aging night cream, and lighter moisturizer as day cream.

3.  A makeup makeover can help freshen and make your face look younger.  There are certain tricks when applying makeup that can help minimize the appearance of aging.  Use mineral makeup, but apply it lightly.  A heavy slather of liquid or powder concealer or foundation can accentuate cracks and lines on your skin.  Instead, apply your moisturizer first (this can also act as primer), then a light application of foundation.  For concealer, always dab it on instead of rubbing it on.  Don't forget your eyes, instead frame them with flattering, natural looking eye liner and shadow.  Your eye brows should be shaped and filled in and in neatly in place.  Use soft shades that compliment your complexion and use mascara to highlight your lashes softly.  Thick, clumped mascara is not very flattering.  A magnifying mirror can help get those unwanted hairs from under the brows and to apply your makeup correctly.  Apply lipstick that stays on your lips, instead of bleeding.

4.  Surface stains on teeth can give the appearance of aging.  Use a non-abrasive toothpaste that brightens your teeth and helps remove surface stains.  Toothpaste with harsh abrasives can cause sensitivity.

5.  Dark circles under the eyes can also make you look older.  It may be that you just need rest and extra sleep or there may be other causes, such as thinning of the skin under the eyes with age.  A good concealer can help camouflage dark circles and age spots.  Make sure to dab and not rub the concealer on and choose one that best matches your skin.  Make sure to wear sun glasses to help protect the delicate skin around the eyes from the sun.  Squinting can increase lines and wrinkles over time.  Cataracts can be prevented or delayed with the use of sun glasses.

6.   Thin hair can age you.  Thinning hair can look fuller with added volume.  Use a volumizing shampoo that is free of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).  SLS tends to dry the scalp and may cause allergies.  Get some tips from your hairdresser on how to give the appearance of added volume through your next hair cut and style appointment.  Some women and men look absolutely marvelous with gray hair, while others look older and washed out.  Decide where you belong and find a hair color that suits your complexion.

7.  Your daily skin routine is one of the most important keys to minimize aging.  Early and daily measures can help reduce skin aging.  Moisture and hydration is extremely vital as is exfoliating regularly and following with a mask to add nutrients to your skin.  An exfoliating scrub helps remove dead cells and allows new cells to surface.  Cells are said to shed about every 21 days.  Daily cleansing may not remove all the dead cells.  As they stay and accumulate on the skin, blemishes, blackheads and whiteheads can be the result.  Alpha hydroxy acids and fruit acids can be applied to help the aging process.

8.  Supplements formulated for healthy skin, hair and nails can also be helpful to promote collagen and to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

9.  Omega-3 fatty acids can help fight wrinkles and aging by keeping your skin healthy and radiant.

10.  Your hands can look crinkled and dry, aging you prematurely.  Shea butter body lotion is excellent for moisturizing your whole body.  For very dry skin, emu oil is a great non-greasy moisturizer.  Emu oil is also great for dry cuticles and heels.  A pumice stone can be used to remove some of the dead skin after soaking your feet.  Follow by applying shea butter body lotion or purified emu oil.
