#1. The key to reversing and preventing skin aging is a combination skin care regimen with quality products. Choose products that contain tested and dermatologically approved ingredients. Make it easy to use. 3 steps should be all you need.
Quality ingredients are a must to get results. The Power Trio contains 10 clinical peptides and 4 anti-aging ingredients in highly concentrated formulations to address the entire spectrum of skin aging. Each product addresses an aspect of good skincare: Retinol to boost collagen, reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discoloration and smooth skin, a peptide and hyaluronic blend to create supple, moist skin, and an oxygen-infusing product to plump, hydrate, clear, calm, smooth and brighten skin.
It should only take a few weeks before you see results. If after six weeks you aren’t seeing any improvement, you might want to try different products. If you are seeing improvement, then continue with the same routine. The best combination skincare should work synergistically and increase results with regular use.
#2.Protect your skin from the sun every day.
Protecting your skin from too much exposure to damaging UV rays is your best tool for preventing skin aging. Apply a good product with an SPF 30 even in cold and cloudy weather.
#3. Necks need TLC, too
It’s important to treat the neck area with a quality product to avoid premature skin aging. Daily cleansing and nourishing are a must. The Radiance 5 peptides and hyaluronic acid blend you use on your face is perfect for the neck area.
#4. Always remove make-up before bedtime.
This is an absolute must. Leaving make-up on spread oils and dirt on your face. The majority of cell turnover and regeneration occurs during sleep. Breakdown of the makeup can result in the breakdown of collagen, resulting in wrinkles, and clogged pores which hold onto bacteria and result in acne.
#5. Always clean your beauty tools.
Routinely clean your make up brushes and sponges in warm water with a little dish soap or shampoo to remove oils, dirt, and make-up residue.
#6. The importance of a good night’s rest
Try to get between seven and eight hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. This is the amount required for the skin to replenish and reverse damage from everyday free radicals. Puffy eyes, dark circles, dehydrated skin and a sallow or ashy complexion are signs of a poor night’s sleep,
#7. The importance of showers
Shower daily if your skin is oily. You may skip a day if your skin is dry and you haven’t worked up a sweat. Always shower after a hard workout to remove oil and sweat which can clog pores and damage your skin. If you don’t like to shower at the gym, shower as soon as you get home. Ideally, shower before the sweat dries. Use a quality body lotion while your skin is still damp to lock in moisture.
#8. Know what’s in your cosmetics
Educate yourself. Always read the ingredient label on any skincare product before use. Some products contain ingredients which can cause an allergic reaction. Go on line and google unfamiliar ingredients. Even so-called organic products–unless certified organic—or naturally derived ingredients may include chemicals or toxins.
#9. Get rid of old cosmetics
Cosmetics don’t have a very long shelf life and will expire. Even expensive cosmetics expire. When they do, throw them out. Generally, this is how long you can use cosmetics:
Mascara: 4 months.
Powder: 18 months.
Liquid, cream foundation, and concealer: 12 months.
Blush and eyeshadow: 24 months.
Lipstick and lip gloss: 18 months.
Eyeliner or eyebrow makeup: pencil, 18 months; gel, 12 months; liquid, 6 months.
If you notice an unpleasant or off smell, discard immediately.
Follow these steps and you’re on the right path for healthier, youthful looking skin.
