Have you been looking in the mirror as of late and starting to see the signs of age catching up to you? Are you sometimes taken aback by your reflection and wishing you could look more youthful? Many people go through these feelings and emotions, as age can play a number on you not just physically but mentally. You may feel young and youthful mentally, but that doesn’t mean your outward appearance matches up.
So if you want to give your face a refresh and look younger, here are some tips that can help.
Use the Proper Skincare Routine and Products
To obtain a more youthful appearance, you need to start with the basics, and that’s the proper skincare routine that addresses the signs of ageing. You’ll also want to invest in good-quality products that deliver results.
Always start your routine with a gentle cleanser that can remove makeup, sunscreen, skin oils, and pollutants. Cream cleansers tend to be gentler on the skin than foaming and gel cleansers.
Follow up with an anti-ageing serum that is lightweight yet potent. Look for ingredients such as vitamin C, retinol/vitamin A, ceramides, niacinamide, alpha hydroxy acid, glycolic acid, and hyaluronic acid.
During the day the next step should be to apply a good quality sunscreen liberally to the face.
Next, you’ll want to moisturise, picking a product that also contains anti-ageing ingredients. While a separate day and night cream aren’t necessary, if you do want separate ones use a lighter cream or lotion during the day, and then a more substantial night cream.
Make Eyes Appear More Youthful
For some people, their eyes are the area of concern. Eyes can sometimes make you appear older or give a tired appearance depending on the folds, fine lines and wrinkles, and loss of volume with age. This is why tear troughs filler has become such a popular option. Eye trough filler addresses the crease that can form between your upper cheek and lower eyelid. Over time the crease can become very deep. Sometimes this is due to age, other times it’s just genetics.
Trough fillers are injections that will plump up the area, giving the illusion of volume. Tear trough fillers are injected just beneath the eyelids using a product that usually has hyaluronic acid in it. How much is tear trough filler you may ask, well, it depends on the place you get it done and how much is needed. While you will see results immediately, keep in mind that the tear trough filler after 2 weeks will look more natural. Any swelling that may occur after the procedure will have gone away. Tear trough and cheek filler may also be used in combination.
Adopt Healthy Habits
So much attention is given to the products you put on your and available cosmetic procedures, but healthy habits are also essential.
A few to follow include:
- Eat a healthy well-balanced diet
- Don’t drink alcohol
- Don’t smoke
