Younger Looking Skin

We all want to keep our skin dewy, taut, and young looking. We don’t want to turn back time – well, maybe we do a little – we just want to age gracefully, with as little sun damage and wrinkles as possible. I don’t like that botox ‘frozen’ look that a lot of people sport when trying to cover up the signs of aging. I prefer natural looking skin. Luckily, there are lots of things you can do to keep your skin looking its best.

If you’re over 20, you should be wearing daily moisturizer. A daily moisturizer with a sunscreen is best, though you can put it on separately. I prefer, however, to combine the two and save myself a step. I like Neutrogena Healthy Skin. It softens and smooths your skin, and keeps you safe from sun damage. Here’s a bonus: Use code NEUT75 at checkout and you’ll get this great daily moisturizer with sunscreen for only $8.99.

If you’re over 30 and you’re starting to see a few fine lines, you should add a daily skin serum to your beauty routine. You’ll knock out those lines around your mouth, and you’ll improve the overall health of your skin. That means less sagging, more collagen production, and better looking skin that appears much younger than its age. I like Olay Regenerist products. Olay Regenerist made the number one spot on Consumer Reports best skin care list. That’s really something, because they tested products that cost 5 times as much as the Olay line.

If you’re over 40 – unless you have oily skin – you should be using an anti aging night cream as well. I use Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream. Yes, I know it’s not traditionally used as a night cream, but I like it better that way. It firms sagging skin and moisturizes very well. My skin is dewy and hydrated when I wake up in the morning, and I swear the skin around my jawline seems tighter.

You can keep your skin younger looking and fight off the signs of aging much longer than you might think. Skin care has a great deal to do with that. These three products – daily moisturizer with sunscreen, daily skin serum, and and anti aging night cream – can go a long way toward keeping your skin in optimum condition.
