1. Use an SPF!!
Ninety percent of fine lines are caused by sun exposure, which makes sunscreen the ultimate ingredient for younger-looking skin. Use an SPF 30 or higher daily. Don't forget sunscreen on your ears, hairline, neck, hands, and chest.
2. Be consistent
“The easiest way to improve your skincare routine is to be consistent. Expecting yourself to do 20 steps every day isn't realistic. Instead, simplify your daily routine and do the 'heavy lifting' whenever you have time,” advises Danielle Lewis, a Wander Beauty Global Brand Educator. “I do two skincare 'deep dives' every week. The first one is ‘Spa Sundays’ and involves me giving my skin all of the love with tons of treatments, masks and exfoliants. I do the same in-depth routine on ‘Wellness Wednesdays’ to give my skin a mid-week pick-me-up. This helps to improve my routine because it ensures that I get all of the benefits without having to do each step every day.”
3. Remember to exfoliate
As we age, the process of cell regeneration slows down. This means that the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones. When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Furthermore, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne.
Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine (2-3 times a week) will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy.
4. Take a collagen supplement
Your body produces less collagen as you get older, which results in fine lines and wrinkles. Taking collagen orally can improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles, and increase skin moisture. To boost your collagen stores, we recommend taking our 5g of our NesProteins Marine Collagen daily. Check out some of our favourite skin-boosting collagen recipes:
