No matter who we are – male / female or at what age or stage we are in life , we always look into the mirror and check out our skin ! The environment that we live in currently and many other factors through which are skin gets affected.
Here are a few signs of maturing skin and how we can deal with it.
- Rough Texture :
Exposure to the sun, dust, pollution and other environmental factors can take a toll on our skin. It affects our facial skin more so leaving it rough. We can help get a smooth texture on our skin by cleansing, exfoliating (even on your back or chest area) and moisturizing. Using sunblock is very important as well. A lot of times we ditch the block simply with reasons being – “I am travelling by car!” Well sure you are however you will get down at some point of time!
- Fine lines and wrinkles:
once again using sun screen really helps in minimizing wrinkles and fine lines. Try also using night creams for men and women respectively. They help in rejuvenation of the skin while your body rests, giving you a fresh look for the next day.
For wrinkles close to the eyes and near the forehead can be avoided by wearing sunglasses! Yes! It’s as simple as that. By wearing sunglasses you strain your eyes less resulting in less stretching of your skin causing wrinkles!
- The appearance of prominent pores:
Now of course at some point of time you got restless and started bursting your pimples back in the day and this is clearly the result of it . However to reduce its redness or it’s prominent visibility what you may do is firstly cleanse your pores daily with a good cleanser or face wash. You may start using a scrub min twice a week – 4 max a week to remove any dead skin that forms through dust etc. After you have finished the activity of scrubbing take 2 cubes of ice and gently rub it on your face to close the pores. Ice is the BEST tonner.
- Uneven skin tone :
Not using sun screen could result in this . Try using bleach masks as well as skin masks to help minimize on the different coloration of your skin. However as you age, you could find yourself to have developed pigmented spots brown-purple in color. Avoid getting treatments if it is really small and negligent. You may try anti-aging creams to lighten the spots.
- Surface dullness and dryness:
This could happen due to excessive shaving for men or not removing make up for women. Use a good quality foam cleanser that works to remove dirt, dead skin and hydrate it a bit as well. Dryness happens due to lack of hydration in your skin. While using a bleach or mask use one which has a hydration option. It will help bring the glow back on your face. Goes without saying – drink A LOT of water even in the winters that are coming up ahead.
