We all want to look younger longer. It feels like life just seems to creep up, and before you know it, all that youth begins to fade away. It doesn’t have to, and you can look spectacular, no matter how old you are, with these tips.
When you notice dark spots
Well darling, it’s pretty likely that those dark spots aren’t freckles. They are hyperpigmentation caused from sun damage or acne. As we age, the skin loses it’s ability to breakdown extra dark pigments, so they stick around. You can fix it over time, and keep people from seeing them for now with a two step process. Use a foundation that is a shade darker than your skin on the spots, and use one that matches your skin on the rest of your face, blend well and voila! Your spots are hidden. Get rid of them for good by choosing a brightening serum that contains kojic acid or vitamin C and using it before you moisturize each day.
When you notice dark circles
Dark circles under the eyes can make you look tired and old, so if you’ve got them it’s pretty likely that you’re interested in getting rid of them. The older we get, the thinner the skin under the eyes gets, and that allows the veins under the eyes to begin showing through and create that shadow effect. You can fix it over time, and give yourself the brighter under eye area you truly want right now. Use a peach concealer that is a shade lighter than the rest of your skin. Eliminate them for the long term by getting plenty of sleep, staying hydrated and choosing an eye cream that contains peptides, retinol or niacin; all ingredients to help plump the skin and reduce the look of dark circles.
When you notice fine lines
Fine lines are a precursor to the deeper crows feet that we begin to experience later on, and they start because of constant use of the facial muscles and sun exposure causes the collagen in the skin to break down and here come the fine lines. You can fix it over time, and make fine lines look smoother now by using some petroleum jelly, or other extremely moisturizing eye cream over the area. Rub it for about a minute to help plump and smooth the wrinkles for a while. For the long term, choose a treatment that uses peptides and retinol to help boost skin plumping collagen production.
When you notice dull skin
A dull complexion happens when the skin begins to lose moisture. Since the enzymes that help to shed dead skin cells need moisture to work properly, your skin probably is not renewing itself like it should. You can fix it with time, and look better now by choosing to use a BB cream that adds a punch of essential moisture and nutrients. For the long term, choose products that offer lots of moisture and that work to draw water into the skin. Products that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin are extra moisturizing.
