Tips for radiant skin at any age
I believe how we age is determined by genetic and hereditary factors and external factors such as bad habits, environmental exposure, lack of proper skin care. When I look at my skin I can see the traits that I share with my mom and grandmother. I can also see the damage from spending hours at the beach with zero protection in my twenties. I have compiled five tips for radiant skin at any age. Number one is the most important!
Wear SPF daily
Photoaging is caused by sun exposure.SPF is really important. I didn’t start wearing sunscreen daily until I was in my late twenties when sunspots started showing up on my face, and hands. After going to Esthetics school and learning about how the skin works and trying a million zillion products to diminish the appearance of these spots, I can honestly say SPF is THE miracle product. The sooner you make application of a good broad-spectrum sunscreen a habit, the better. A good hat helps too!
Hyperpigmentation problems are usually the first sign of sun damage you will see when you’re in your twenties. The dermis is made up of collagen and elastin which hold the skin together and provide strength and elasticity. Collagen and Elastin are broken down by natural aging and sun exposure.
A lot of skin care products and makeup contain broad spectrum SPF which covers both UVA and UVB rays so it is worth experimenting with a few that absorb easily that you can incorporate into your skin care regimen.
