When it comes to aging, most women want to know what they can do to prevent or slow down the process. And the great news is, there are things you can be doing at home to help your skin stay young and beautiful! Try these tips to keep your skin looking fresh and wrinkle-free.
1. Coconut milk mask
Coconut is packed with vitamins and minerals, and is also highly moisturizing. One of the best things you can do for your skin to prevent wrinkles is to moisturize. Apply coconut milk to your face and let it sit for about 20 minutes, before rinsing with warm water.
2. Cut your time spent in the sun by half
It’s no secret that UV exposure is the number one skin-ager. The sun damages the elastin in your skin and can cause you to lose collagen, which results in drooping skin and wrinkles over time. UV rays also cause skin cancer. It’s impossible to stay out of the sun completely, so halve the time you spend in the sun. You should also always wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
If you’ve already seen wrinkles starting to appear on your face, don’t worry! Exfoliating your skin can help brighten your skin’s complexion. And if you’re looking for a natural alternative to harsh retinols, try a face mask made of carrots, sweet potatoes, apricots or any other vitamin-A rich fruits and vegetables.
4. Develop a skin care routine for morning and night
Having a good skin care routine is one of the easiest and best things you can do for your skin. Start your morning with a layer of sunscreen, whether you’re going outside or not. Always remove your makeup before going to bed, and wash your face regardless of whether you wear makeup or not. We recommend using a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser. Apply a retinoid and moisturizer after washing your face, and sleep on a clean pillow. If you want to go the extra mile for preventing wrinkles while you sleep, consider purchasing a silk pillowcase.
5. Relax your face when working out
We get it – your workout routine can get intense, and that’s great! But try to be conscious of your facial muscles when doing your workout. Tensing your jaw and throat while you exercise can actually pull down your face’s skin. Relax those muscles to give your face a break.
