Your skin changes as you age, so the routine that may have worked for your 20-year-old skin will not do any favors for your 50-year-old skin. If you want to keep your skin looking its healthiest and shave off about ten years while you’re at it, follow this incredibly simple skin care routine:
1. Rinse with cool or lukewarm water.
As we age, our skin naturally becomes drier, making it essential to avoid stripping the skin of its natural oils. Use a gentle facial cleanser when washing your face in the evening and rinse with only cool or at most lukewarm water. Alternatively, you can avoid rinsing your face entirely by using certain cream or oil based cleansers that simply wipe away.
2. Apply a skin mask.
Moisturizer should be applied in the mornings and evenings. The best way to lock in moisture is to start using skin masks like BRZLNSKIN’s Açai Triple Stem Cell Complex. This transparent, breathable overnight mask stays on your skin until you easily peel it off the next morning, allowing your skin to completely absorb its moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients.
3. Apply (and reapply!) sunscreen.
Sun damage accounts for the majority of aging effects on the skin. As we get older, it takes our skin longer to recover from harmful effects like sunburn, and it more easily develops dark spots. The best way to avoid this is to apply and reapply sunscreen frequently. Apply under makeup, on your neck, and on your hands.
4. Exfoliate once a week.
The top layer of skin (which consists of dead cells) gets thicker with age, so exfoliating weekly will help remove dead skin and reveal fresher, younger-looking skin. Avoid irritation by exfoliating sparingly, at most twice a week.
5. Skip the injections and fillers.
Many women swear by injections and fillers, but this is not realistic for everyone for a number of reasons. Skip the injections and make use of the naturally-derived alternative for instant face lift: Bratoxinsta. Get longer lasting results without stepping into a doctor’s office.
