Effective Ways to Make Your Face Look Young Again

Age is nothing but a number. How long you have been alive is determined by a lot more factors than age. For some, early wrinkles may play a huge part in having an older-looking skin. Is it possible to resolve old-looking skin and get your face looking younger again? Dermatologists suggest using some of the best skincare products the market has to offer. Test each product on your arm first for a couple of days before committing fully.
The skincare market has many different ingredients touted to make users look younger. Every buyer should be aware of fake and ineffective products sold in the market. Buyers should only use products proven to make a face look soft and younger-looking. An excellent place to start is using products with retinol, which is a Vitamin A compound found in wrinkle creams. Products with Vitamin C are useful as they protect the skin from sun damage.
There are numerous DIY things you can do to keep your complexion healthy and young-looking. Here are proven tips that will help you slow down the aging process.

Applying SPF daily

Make sure to apply SPF daily, especially around your eyes. Having sunscreen is a must to help keep the skin younger, no matter the type of weather. Make sure to add SPF to your daily routine. This is especially important for those people who traditionally haven’t. Sun damage will cause wrinkles and leave you vulnerable to skin cancer. An excellent place to start is using an SPF 30 but never go beyond SPF 50. SPF 30 is credited with moisturizing the skin and packed with vitamins. It will help make your face stay soft.

Be easy with your foundation

What is best for aging skin is a moisturizing foundation, referred to as a tinted moisturizer. Make sure you avoid products with a powder base and go for foundations with light to medium coverage. You should also ensure you use a primer before applying your foundation. Thanks to using a primer, your foundation will roll on more smoothly, which will help fill in lines and pores. Primers also help to ensure your makeup lasts longer.

By using the right skincare products

When you are searching for skincare products, three ingredients should be available. Make sure you check the labels for antioxidants such as Vitamin C. The best skincare product should also have retinoid, which helps increase cell turnover. Retinoids also help stimulate the renewal of collagen. Make sure you use an alpha hydroxy acid exfoliator, which helps remove the top layer of dead skin. 

Curl your eyebrows

The smallest steps will take you a long way in ensuring your face looks young again. You can use an eyelash curler to help open your eyes. With the help of lashes, you will look awake and more youthful. Make sure to take your curler and hold it for 20 seconds on each eye. A proper eyelash curler routine will help define the shape of the eyes. Make sure you have steady hands to avoid any mishaps.

Drink plenty of water

Keeping your body hydrated means your skin is well=moisturized. When the body is not well hydrated, your skin looks dry, dull, and patchy. You will look older than you would look if you don’t hydrate your body. Staying hydrated means your metabolic functions are adequate. You will thus be keeping your skin looking healthy and stronger. Please don’t wait until your body feels thirsty; once you feel this way, it means your body is dehydrated. Make sure you drink at least eight glasses of water a day.

Enhance your lip color

By using dark matte lipstick to your lips, it makes them appear younger and add years to your face. Make sure to pick a color that matches your natural lip color. Using your fingertips to apply makeup is beneficial in ensuring the edges of your lips appear soft. Further, applying lip balm creates a glossy finish. 
Experts recommend soft berry shades. For people who prefer lip liner, you should trace your lip line subtly. By doing this, your lips will appear plumper.

Following a CTM Routine

The three most important aspects of skincare are cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Whether you have just woken up or going to bed, make sure you have and follow a proper CTM routine. Make sure to cleanse your skin thoroughly when the day starts. You should prep your skin with a good moisturizer before you put on any makeup. Make sure to remove the makeup on time to avoid dirt and sebum buildup. You should moisturize your skin at night.

Get products with anti-aging ingredients

Collagen and retinoid skincare products are the best secret weapon in keeping the skin young. Retinol has anti-aging properties, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. A vitamin A derivative, retinol also boots the production of collagen. However, you need to consult a doctor first before using retinol-based products. Another alternative is investing in collagen-boosting creams or serums. You can also take collagen supplements, though make sure you consult a doctor beforehand, as previously mentioned.

Hands and legs

Most people don’t know that the skin on the back of their hands is thinner than the rest of the body. As such, make sure to apply sunscreen on your hands, as well as your legs. To prevent having dry skin on your hands, a good massage with hand cream is necessary. Using hand cream will also help nourish your cuticles and nails. Make sure you use a baby scrub at least once a week to remove dead cells.

A hairstyle that makes you look and feel younger

Avoid any hairstyle that will make you look dull. These include any hairstyle that pulls your hair away from your lovely face. For people with short hair, go for bangs or fringe to help frame your face. Make sure the hairstyle you have makes you look more youthful. You can consult a stylist to help you determine the hairstyle that fits your face. Coloring hair takes years off your appearance.  The trick is to choose a color that matches your natural hair color.
The tips mentioned above are not difficult to follow. Try them and they will make your face look younger again.
