Time gets away from us all in a variety of ways. We lose track of when appointments are, forget small dates, or just feel that they arrive earlier than they should. Losing track of time is a very human thing to do. Time also gets away from us in that our birthdays seem to come around sooner every year. The gradual shift in how our skin behaves mean it is never quite as easy to take care of or responsive as it was when we were younger. For the less lucky among us, sun damage can even lead to premature aging of the skin that makes it even harder to treat. There are ways we can rejuvenate skin regardless of what’s causing its decline. We’ve put together a few tips to help you create the perfect skin rejuvenation strategy to help get their skin looking and feelings its best.
Both sun damage and age rob the skin of moisture. This leads to various issues with the skin that cause it to become less healthy. Moisturizing according to your skin type is one of the most effective things you can do to help revitalize your skin if you’ve been lax. It will help restore a bit of life and responsiveness to your skin that it otherwise lacks. You can build upon this by looking for anti-aging or skin rejuvenating masks and products. These go well beyond simple moisturizing. The products typically include various skin fortifying ingredients that boost the skin’s natural repair processes and allow it to restore some of what has been lost to damage. You should keep an eye out for products with notable amounts of vitamins C, D, and E for maximum effect.
This step is fairly predictable to anyone familiar with skin care. You can use all the products you want to try to help your skin, but if you aren’t protecting your skin it won’t do any good. Sun damage is one of the leading causes of premature aging and other issues in skin. Your skin takes damage from when you first expose it to the sun until well after you’ve left direct sunlight. This extended damage is thanks to the introduction of free radical into the skin. The best thing you can do is prevent and minimize any sun damage to your skin by using an appropriate sunscreen. SPF 30 or higher products with broad spectrum protection provide adequate protection for most skin types. Adding this protective layer will both minimize further damage and give any other strategies you use a better chance to work.
The skin around the eyes is the most delicate skin of your face. It’s thin to begin with and constantly gets pinched and scrunched as you make expressions throughout the day. This means it requires special attention to rejuvenate itself. Retinol products are generally the best course of action when it comes to deal with signs of aging and damage around the eyes. These products are derived from a version of vitamin A and offer multiple benefits to the skin. The drawback is that most retinol products are fairly potent and as a result, should be used at night to both give them time to work and give your skin time to recover from their use by the next day. However, the end results tend to be highly reliable and will certainly help lend a rejuvenated look to your skin.
Trying to rejuvenate your skin after bad habits or time have caused damage isn’t a lost cause. It simply requires a willingness to utilize multiple strategies and products at once. The complex nature of skin damage means that you need to maintain these strategies over an extended period to make the most of them and see any noticeable change. The willingness and determination to do so will certainly help you along the way to cultivate your beauty.
