There are many things we can do to feel better about ourselves on a daily basis. There are few things, however, that are as simple as a daily skin care routine. Not only does this simple routine give us beautiful, young, and vibrant skin; it provides us with an offering to ourselves, with each step repeated daily, like a mantra, ultimately praising our self-worth and potential to be stunning. Skin care routines like this will work wonders for your skin, with equally positive effects on your self-esteem.
Not sure where to start? Begin with something as simple as applying a moisturizer daily. Our skin is the biggest organ we possess, and it gets treated with the smallest amount of respect. Using a moisturizer not only softens our skin, making it more touchable and pleasant to look at; it also allows for better circulation within our skin’s tiny blood vessels that dry skin forces to constrict.
Once you have incorporated moisturizing into your daily schedule, add other elements to your skin care routine such as the daily use of eye gels or creams. These are available in night or day creams. Your eyes are where you will first notice the pesky signs of aging.
Fine lines and wrinkles will appear nearly out of nowhere! You can’t turn back the clock, but you can make the effects quite a bit less noticeable by using a daily eye gel or cream. How? Eye creams contain moisturizers specifically designed to work on small problem areas like the eye area. They reduce the appearance of wrinkles, assist in keeping new wrinkles from forming, and protect the areas from sun damage; one of the biggest wrinkle causing culprits.
Many skin care products contain Retinol, an antioxidant derived from vitamin A. These antioxidants neutralize free radicals (unstable molecules of oxygen that destroy skin cells causing wrinkles and other appearance problems), leaving the skin protected all day. We often take vitamins or use hair care products daily for one reason: to protect the part of our body the products defend. The same should be done for our skin. Creating a daily skin-care routine is the only way to guarantee a continuous, youthful appearance.
The sun is one of the biggest opponents in the war against aging. Creating a daily skin-care routine including moisturizers and eye creams (preferably with sunscreen) is the only way you can guarantee the longevity of your skin without hiding in the shadows. Staying young and beautiful doesn’t have to cost you the activities that you love; you are merely required to take the initiative to care for yourself properly, on a regular basis.
Improving the luster of your skin is possible, and so simple! Add an extra five to ten minutes during your morning routine to apply moisturizer and eye cream; or give yourself five extra minutes in the morning to apply moisturizer to your skin before makeup application, and five minutes before bed to apply a night-time eye cream. Keeping a youthful appearance is really this easy! Create a reliable daily skin care routine you can stick to. Your skin will thank you, and you will reap the benefits of your dedication!
