Hollywood’s skincare professionals know what it takes to keep your face looking young well into old age. Some of them agreed to share some of the most important beauty routines for that on-screen timeless beauty.
First and foremost, ensure that you shield your skin from dangerous UVA and UVB radiation. Skin care expert Ava Shamban insisted that sunscreen makes the biggest difference in preserving a youthful look.
UVA radiation causes the skin to prematurely age. A recent study revealed that 80% of premature skin aging is tied to sun exposure. UVA rays cause wrinkling, age spots, and pigmentation.
Sunblock should contain an SPF 15 or higher. You can replace sunblock with a moisturizer that offers sun protection. Also, ensure that you reapply sunscreen or moisturizer to stay protected.
Look for Quality Ingredients
Another pro tip is to use professional skincare products. Also, look for products that include vitamin C, antioxidants, retinol, alpha hydroxy acids, green tea extract, and peptides. Retinoids are very useful as well since they can increase collagen production, unclog pores, and prevent premature wrinkling.
- Powerful antioxidants like grape seeds and green tea help the skin to stay fresh and young longer time.
- After the age 30, use products that promote collagen production and helps the skin stay firm.
Celebrity skin care expert Joanna Czech recommends using vitamin C during daytime and vitamin A during nighttime after the age 30. Also, look for products that contain hyaluronic acid which promotes skin hydration. In addition, ensure that your eye cream or serum is of high quality since the lips and eyes do not have their own oil glands and are at a higher risk of wrinkling prematurely.
Another expert recommends using eye cream or eye serum starting as early as the age of 20 to keep aging at bay. Face oils are also helpful since they act as food for the skin. It is worth noting that the body does not generate Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids on its own. So, we need to consume them and apply them on our skin.
