About to hit the 30’s? Are you worried about life? Or, if you are settled, what can be more comforting. Waking up, tossing out of bed, getting ready for the job you love to do, everything is buttery smooth UNTIL YOU LOOK INTO THE MIRROR AND boom, everything is not so smooth on your skin, middle age?
We all love our body and especially our skin; whether we have already done enough in life or are on our way to, the thing which matters the most is the presentation of ourselves! Well, pretty easy if you’re still in your roaring early 20’s, but once you start feeling your skin grow old, you know you have to start with something known as an anti-aging skin care routine. It may sound very technical and very sketchy to you, but I promise it is not.
So the first step towards your skincare routine is starting it at an appropriate time, not too late, not too early. So,
- How necessary is anti-aging?
As told before, one of the things that matters the most, even if you are well settled in life, is being presentable, and nothing is more presentable than a young skin shining out of everything. Also, if you are presentable enough, you might carry high self-esteem and feel good about yourself.
- When is the right time?
Many experts say to start using an anti-aging skincare routine in your 20’s, but it is never too late to start! Although it is called anti-aging, it does not mean you cannot begin to start aging.
- Bring it into your practice.
Just as you do some of the things almost daily, skincare should be one of them; you do not expect your skin to start glowing if you do not regularly take care of it.
- It does not always need to be cosmetics
It may sound surprising to you, but the most natural ways can help you with your skincare routine. Standard practices such as eating fresh fruits and veggies, not smoking, washing correctly, exercising, and moisturizing yourself can help your skin a LOT.
- Choosing the right products for your skin type
Everyone is different, and so is everybody’s skin. So what might be good for someone might not be suitable for you. For instance, if you have dry skin, you should stay away from products with oil as one of their key ingredients. It will only irritate you more.
- The 3 steps to begin with
There is a popular thread about the three steps, to begin with, the skincare routine, Clean, Moisturize and Protect. In the morning, use a cleanser while showering daily, followed up by a moisturizer, and the final sunscreen, at least 30 SPF, if you are going out. The wonders a simple sunscreen can do to protect your skin and help in anti-aging are subtle, but it is one of the most effective ways.
- The 3 steps to end with
Once you have followed up the morning routine, a similar yet different evening routine must be followed. The only difference is, once you are done with the cleansing, instead of the moisturizer, you are supposed to use serums, toners, etc., for blending everything perfectly with your skin.
Most beginners follow this same routine for a long time, and you will start feeling the changes in your skin once you start following it up, and who does not want to stay young? We all have a little Marilyn Monroe in ourselves, so let that shine out, and keep this daily anti-aging practice!
