Skincare: 7 habits you need to adopt before 40
* Vitamin C
Dermatologists agree that antioxidant vitamin C is one of the most important ingredients in your treatment, as it prevents the appearance of panicles and enhances collagen production. Consider that there are some cells in your skin, the fibroblasts, which produce collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep the skin elastic and youthful. As you get older, however, this production declines. Vitamin C stimulates fibroblasts to continue producing the proteins of youth.
Apply Vitamin C in the morning before applying your sunscreen for extra protection.
As it grows older, the skin tends to become thicker, dull and dull, while pores appear more intense. This is because dead skin cells are removed more slowly as you grow older. Thus, the skin starts to look tired and has a rough texture. At the same time, the extra coloring accumulates in the dead cells, so your skin tone may discolor or become uneven.
The good news is that exfoliating 2-3 times a week can reduce the problem and help you maintain your youthful glow. In addition, by removing dead cells, you allow other skin care products to penetrate and absorb better.
We have rewritten it and we will not stop writing it: if you want to include only one anti-aging product in your care, let it be sunscreen . Consistency is a prerequisite for getting the desired results. So, you should apply a sunscreen every morning with at least 30 protection markers in order to keep your skin healthy. Remember to apply sunscreen to your neck and neckline.
The skin becomes drier and wilder as you grow older, so it’s never too early to start applying moisturizing cream. There are some really effective ingredients, such as biolipids, that mimic the organization of skin lipids and integrate perfectly into the skin, recreating a natural protective layer upon application.
* Dermatological examination
Sure looking fresh and shiny is great, but making sure you’re protected from skin cancer is far more important. This is why it is advisable to make an appointment with a dermatologist once a year (or even more often if you have a history of melanoma) to monitor your entire body.
This active ingredient in Vitamin A can literally transform your skin for the better, as long as you know how to use it. Retinol should be applied at night after cleansing as it is a photosensitive component that neutralizes the sun and air, and in some cases causes skin irritation. This is why it is best to apply a generous amount of retinol on your hand and leave it on for at least 24-48 hours. If there is no reaction, you can apply it once or twice a week and then every night.
* Face wash
As with toothbrushing, as with face washing, once a day is not enough. Because your morning care is about protecting your skin and your night care is about repairing it, it is important to establish a face wash routine both in the morning and in the evening. Not more often though, as it can dehydrate your skin. Unwashed skin results in clogged pores, uneven skin and faster aging. So start by keeping your skin clean and then move on to the rest.
