As you age, your skin ages too and needs more care than before as the body’s replenishing power decreases.
Wrinkles, lines and sagging become a part of ageing but certain steps can delay their onset.
Drinking at least eight glasses of water helps keep the skin glowing. As you age, the skin becomes drier and hydrating yourself from inside is the first best thing you can do for your skin.
A heavy duty moisturizer will work well for dry skin while a normal and an oily skin can do with a water based moisturizer. Use a hydrating lotion in the morning and before retiring to bed.
Ageing skin can suffer more damage due to exposure to harmful sun rays. Shield your skin by using a sunscreen with an SPF ranging from fifteen to thirty.
Use creams containing renova, which is a vitamin A derivative and proven to defy ageing by reducing appearance of wrinkles and other age related skin changes.
It might not be skin care regimen per say but it helps in skin health. It helps release toxins from the body giving your skin the healthy glow which can come from inside only.
