Using anti-aging cream
To slow down the aging process of the skin, retinoids can be used. These compounds are derived from vitamin A or have a similar structure and function as vitamin A. They have the ability to limit water loss and protect collagen, a type of protein that supports the skin’s structure. This helps reduce wrinkles and dark spots.
Retinoids should be used at night. They should not be used excessively, as they can cause itching, redness, or dryness of the skin. Retinoids should not be used during the day, as they break down in sunlight.
Using eye cream
Using eye cream daily can help reduce dark circles, puffiness, and rejuvenate this sensitive area of the skin. The timing of using eye cream:
– Morning: Use one with SPF to protect the skin from sunlight and prevent wrinkles.
– Evening: Choose a cream with more moisturizing ingredients and without SPF.
Applying sunscreen daily
Applying broad-spectrum sunscreen (protecting against UVB and UVA rays) with a minimum SPF of 30 helps protect the body from daily radiation that causes cumulative damage and accelerates the skin aging process.
Hydrating the skin
Drinking plenty of water and regularly applying moisturizer to the skin helps hydrate the skin. Drinking enough water is important in maintaining healthy skin. Water maintains elasticity and plumpness, resulting in bright and reduced eye puffiness.
After bathing, applying moisturizer will provide an artificial barrier that can prevent water loss and help maintain healthy skin. Moisturizer should be applied twice a day.
Using exfoliating products
Using external exfoliating products can help remove dead skin cells, thereby preventing premature skin aging.
Note that before exfoliating, it is advisable to shower with warm water to remove dirt and help open up the pores. Gently apply the exfoliator in circular, small, gentle motions. Apply moisturizer immediately after exfoliating to lock in moisture and minimize damage to the skin.
Physical activity helps the skin excrete toxins, improves blood circulation to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the internal organs of the body, thereby nourishing the skin better and avoiding sagging.
