There comes an age, oftentimes in our mid-20s, that we can feel and see a difference in our skin. Though it may not appear drastic, the presence alone of fine lines stretching around our eyes, or curving with our lips is a gentle reminder that with age, our bodies change. As time passes, skin becomes thinner and weaker. Although we can’t stop the passing of time, we can care for our skin, make conscious choices, and ease into the process of aging.
Sometimes the skin may age more rapidly than necessary, if certain factors are at play. Keeping in mind that there are several things you can do to help maintain your skin’s youth, there are also several things you should not do.
Moisturize consistently. Repairing the moisture barrier is key when attending to damaged and aging skin. Because skin increasingly becomes weaker, the layers that would help lock in moisture can more easily be stripped away. Our Clarity Awakening Face Cream is a perfect moisturizer that penetrates deep into the skin, restoring your skin’s natural moisture barrier and elegant glow.
Eat a well-balanced diet. This step is harder for some, and the simplest for others. A well-balanced diet is a crucial component to keeping your facial skin, and all skin, healthy. The nutrients in our diets are used throughout the body and skin is no exception. Make sure you are eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, and of course stay hydrated!
Use gentle cleansers. Facial tissues are incredibly delicate so it is important that you use a gentle cleanser to wash your face. Gentle cleansers will prevent your skin from further damages, and will help rid your skin of the debris and toxins it accumulates throughout the day. Our Rain Replenishing Oil Cleanser is an effective detoxifying cleanser that removes makeup, grime, and all of your daily dirt. It’s superpower is balancing your oil production, reducing inflammation, and regenerating your skin with each use!
Stay in the sun unprotected. The sun, as wonderful as it is to bask in, is harmful to the skin’s delicate layers. In fact, sun exposure is the leading cause of premature aging skin and one of the most important instigators to start protecting against. Make sure to wear a hat, use sunscreen, and avoid direct exposure when possible.
Use rough exfoliants. Many exfoliants on the shelves include large salt or sugar granules, or contain rough objects throughout the mixture that are intended to remove dead skin and unclog pores. Though many of the products are useful for the legs, or stronger parts of skin, the face is a No-Go Zone for these harsh exfoliants. Instead, opt for a gentle polish like our Sand Red Desert Mineral Polish that will soften and unclog your pores without causing damage to your skin’s outer layers.
Forget about your under eyes. This skin around your eyes is more delicate than the rest of your face. This is also why we often first see wrinkles originating from the eye areas. Science has progressed immensely in recent years to show that eye creams can restore buoyancy, firm weakened skin spots, and even nearly erase wrinkles. So, don’t forget to give this area extra love and attention. Our Starry Eyes Brightening Eye Cream makes it easy to give your skin the nutrients and attention it needs with one simple product.
