0 Flares 0 Flares ×

You aren’t getting any younger. But that doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel like a million bucks.

Wanting a more youthful appearance doesn’t make you vain. The industry is growing, so you aren’t alone in your desire.

So what are you going to do about it? You’ll need a game plan to get you started and a regimen to follow on a daily basis for maximum results.

Keep reading for 5 mature skin care tips to keep your aging skin looking pristine.

#1 Stay Out of the Sun

As you age, you will likely notice your skin loosening and wrinkling. The sun, while imperative to vitamin D production, has some unpleasant effects.

UV rays damage elastin and will also cause a loss of collagen. These are the ingredients for young, tight, and soft skin.

You would benefit from cutting your time in the sun in half if possible.

Wear sunglasses and sunscreen. Keep to the shady sides of the street, parks, and other outdoor activities. If you prefer to exercise outside, do so in the morning or evening.

When you can’t avoid the sun, take care. Extreme heat can also do damage. Drink plenty of water. It will keep you hydrated and is also a mature skin care tip.

Like all of the cells in your body, skin cells are made up of mostly water, so drink plenty.

#2 Lay Down the Smokes

Are you a long time smoker? do you have leathery skin and premature wrinkles?

This is called “smoker’s face” and is easily avoidable by giving up the habit.

Like the sun, tobacco products are guilty of damaging your elastin and collagen production.

Do yourself and your skin a favor and put the cigarettes down for good. Your skin, heart, and lungs will all thank you.

#3  Eat Healthy

Your doctor probably asks about your diet every time you step into their office.

Diet is important for overall health but you may be surprised at the effects a healthy diet will have on mature skin care.

Since you’re cutting back on sun exposure, you should probably take a vitamin D supplement. Amp up your lean protein levels, especially fish, and consider taking a fish oil supplement.

At this point, who hasn’t heard the word “antioxidant”? Go a step further and put them into your diet.

Fruits and vegetables should be included in every meal. The best part about these foods is you can eat as much as you want.

No one has ever said, “Whoa buddy, I think you’re going a little heavy on the salad.”

#4  Sleep and Mature Skin Care

Your body heals while you sleep. This helps you to wake up feeling refreshed. Do your part to help your body stay healthy by getting enough sleep.

Stress and improper rest will cause bags around your eyes and saggy skin, which will enhance already present wrinkles.

#5  Use Retinoids

This is one thing all dermatologists seem to agree on. Retinoids, essentially, are prescription versions of vitamin A. And there are weaker versions available over the counter and online.

How do they work?

They will minimize the visibility of existing age-spots while keeping new ones from forming. It’ll take a month or two to see results, but they’re worth it.

These products come in the form of topical creams and are easy to apply. Just rub some on your skin before bed and you’ll be good to go.

Use every last one of these tips as a part of your mature skin care regimen and you’ll be looking younger in no time.
