We Can’t Stop The Clock, But We Can Give You Our Best Anti Aging Tips

If you grew up watching any of these shows, it's time to think about adding some anti-aging skincare into your daily routine.

Aging is inevitable, you can’t escape it but you CAN slow it down. Now, you can either go the invasive surgical way (aka, a facelift) but that's expensive, requires a lot of research, and comes with a bunch of aftercare.


You could take some preventative steps that can help slow down time.  Today, I'm going to share my favorite tips and tricks for a youthful glow!

Stick around, because you'll definitely want to hear these.

Protect Your Skin From The Sun

Look, I cannot stress this enough. The sun will age you more than anything else ever will. All the expensive skincare you've invested in? The elaborate 10-step skincare you do every night before you go to bed? Yeah, this will all be pointless if you don't protect yourself from the sun.

Make sure to shield your skin from the sun every single day. Whether you're out for a beach day or just running errands, it's so important to protect yourself. Find some shade whenever you can, and if you're out in the sun, cover up with clothes that'll keep those harmful rays off your skin. 

Think lightweight long sleeves, pants, a big hat, and shades with UV protection. And don't forget the sunscreen! Go for one that says "broad-spectrum" and has SPF 30 or higher, and make sure it's water-resistant. Slather it on all the exposed areas of your skin. If you want even more protection, look for clothes labeled with UPF. 

And I don't care if you're indoors all day or it's a cloudy day, you make sure to wear that sunscreen every single day.

Give Retinoids a Shot!

Retinoids are a vitamin A boost for your skin. They speed up the process of renewing your skin cells. This ingredient helps build collagen, evens out your skin tone, smoothens your skin texture, and even dials down those pesky wrinkles. Yes, it truly is a star ingredient, which is why it's a must-have in my skincare products!

But here's the thing: when you first start using retinoids, they might make your skin dry or even cause some pimples (known as as purging stage). So, start slow. Try using a weaker retinoid every other day at first. Then, as your skin gets used to it, you can gradually use it every day or even try a stronger version.

TAKE NOTE: The purging stage should only last about 4-6 weeks. Before starting retinol, we recommend speaking to your dermatologist first.

Don't Smoke!

Smoking not only raises your chances of heart disease and lung cancer but also messes up your skin big time. The facial movements you make while smoking can lead to more wrinkles, and smoking tightens up your blood vessels, which isn't great for your skin either.

Basically what I'm trying to say is, smoking speeds up how quickly your skin ages. It does a number on your appearance, making you more likely to deal with issues like:

  • Itchy, red patches of skin with silver scales (called psoriasis)

  • Getting wrinkles way earlier than you should

  • Having teeth that are all stained up (Yikes!)

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

Your skin will start to produce less oil as you age. While this might mean fewer pimples, it also means your skin can get dry more easily. One big reason for those little wrinkles is that your skin isn't hydrated enough. But no worries, fixing it is simple with a good moisturizer!

And no, you can't skip moisturizing even if your skin is oily! Everyone's skin needs some hydration.

Pick a moisturizer that has ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid—they help lock moisture into your skin. 

At night, using something like Vaseline or Aquaphor can also help keep moisture in. Just make sure your skin is clean before you put it on, or else you might trap bacteria!

PRO TIP: If you have oily skin, opt for a gel-based moisturizer whereas if you have dry skin, opt for a cream-based moisturizer.

Start Exfoliating!

As you get older, your skin doesn't renew itself as quickly. Dead skin cells hang around longer, making your skin look dull and uneven, and it might even crack.

That's where exfoliants come in. There are two types: physical and chemical. Skip the rough physical ones like sugar scrubs—they can make your skin sag. Instead, go for a gentle washcloth or sponge.

Chemical exfoliants dissolve those dead cells more gently. They're great for any age! Look for ingredients like glycolic acid or lactic acid in toners, serums, or peels for smoother, younger-looking skin.

Feed Your Skin from the Inside Out

Eating a well-rounded diet packed with nutrients gives your skin what it needs to stay healthy. Foods loaded with antioxidants, like berries, leafy greens, and nuts, help shield your skin from damage and keep its repair process going strong.

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fatty fish, flaxseeds, and walnuts, have anti-inflammatory properties that help your skin. They help it stay soft and radiant. And don't forget to mix it up with lots of colorful fruits and veggies—they're packed with vitamins and minerals that keep your skin in tip-top shape.

Get Enough Sleep 

Beauty sleep is real! When you snooze, your body fixes itself, including your skin. Try to get 7-9 hours of good sleep each night to help your skin look fresh and rested.

Stress isn't good for your skin. It can cause breakouts, redness, and make you look older. Try to relax by meditating or doing things you enjoy. It'll make a difference in how your skin looks and how you feel.

Taking care of your skin doesn't have to be complicated. If you implement the simple habits mentioned in this article, you will notice a huge difference in how your skin looks and feels.

Remember, aging is natural, but you can slow it down with the right approach. 

So, whether you're binge-watching your favorite shows or just going about your day, make sure to give your skin the love and attention it deserves. Your skin will thank you for it with a radiant and vibrant appearance that reflects your inner beauty.

It's not about being perfect, it's about taking care of yourself and giving yourself some love and care.
