Top 5 Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips

There are countless products on the market that claim to turn back the hands of time, but when it comes to truly looking your youngest, you can rely on some basic rules. Here, the top 10 skin care tips for those who want to look ageless and youthful for many years to come: Use a Retinoid Hands down, the most effective skin care product at making skin look its youngest is a retinoid cream. A product containing retinoids stimulate collagen production and help the skin turnover its dead skin cells. Skin will look fresher, younger and brighter after using a retinoid cream. It's very important to use sunscreen with a retinoid cream, as they make the skin more sensitive to the sun. Use Sunscreen All The Time For skin to look its youngest, you must be vigilant in the sun protection department. That means applying sunscreen every single day, not just the days you plan on hitting the beach. Need proof?

Stay Hydrated This means moisturizing your skin every day with an emollient cream, ideally one that contains a humectant. It also means, drinking plenty of water. Not coffee or caffeine, which can actually deplete the body of hydration, but plain old filtered water. When your body is hydrated and your skin is moisturized, the skin looks a lot younger and wrinkles are not as apparent. Keep Your Hands Off Your Face Do not pick at your acne lesions or any other marks on your skin. Picking at your face could lead to permanent scarring. Get Your Beauty Sleep The ideal amount of sleep is six to eight hours a night. You need sleep in order to properly allow the skin to renew itself. Also, all of those products you are using at night, including the retinol cream, do their job best while you're sleeping. Find out ways you can maximize your beauty sleep here.
