1. Hydrate & Moisturize
Drink 6-8 glasses of
water per day and use a good moisturizer. Also, wait about 3 minutes for lotion to fully absorb before applying make-up. To decrease under-eye puffiness: use cream, not water-based lotion – under eyes absorb the water, causing more puffiness.
2. Nourish & Moisturize at Night
Many of the best nutrients for your skin can break down in sunlight and products can work better when they’re not competing with makeup or sun/wind exposure.
3. Eat Skin-Healthy Foods
Stay away from sugar and refined foods like white bread and pasta. These increase oil production and can cause premature aging. Sweet potatoes, salmon, citrus, tomatoes, and leafy greens are shown to have a positive effect on skin. Healthy fats like olive and coconut oil increase absorption of antioxidants.
5. Use Cream Blushes & Shadows
Powdery make-up products settle into lines and can make skin look dryer. Added bonus: creamy products are more moisturizing to begin with and will “plump” skin too.
6. Do Cardio
That flush you get when working out is a sign your skin is getting lots of oxygen and nutrients. Sweating is a great way to flush toxins out of your pores.
7. Get Your ZZZ’s
When your sleeping, your body is repairing cells and healing itself. Aim for 7-9 hours per night.
9. Whiten Your Teeth
It’s no secret – whiter, healthier teeth can make you look years younger.
10. Use a Proven Anti-Aging Cream
Use a treatment to boost collagen production and normalize cell renewal that slows with age.
