Yesterday, I shared it is okay to fight against aging. Today, I will share anti-aging skincare routines.
When most people think about anti-aging, they think about their skin. That is a good thing to think about since it is the largest organ our body has. Our skin does so much more than hold our internal organs inside. It helps us regulate our body temperature and is a significant contributor to how we look. Having healthy skin, free from the ravages of aging, helps us feel confident and secure.
We need to care for our skin at every age. It is vital to keep skin healthy, hydrated, and protected from infancy through our elder years. Here are some anti-aging skin routines you can use at any age-
Infants- Infant skin needs love too! Infants need moisturization and hydration as much as anyone. Help the babies in your life stay healthy by using chemical-free soaps, lotions, and moisturizers designed for a baby’s skin. If your child is sensitive, be sure to find hypo-allergenic products that will not irritate their delicate skin.
Kids- Kids are generally pretty rugged and get into many situations that cause bumps, bruises, and dirt in every place imaginable. Be sure to help kids stay clean by using soap and water. Help your kids stay hydrated by encouraging them to drink plenty of water throughout the day and with their meals. Use lotions and germ-fighting products routinely, and be sure to teach children the importance of frequent and thorough hand washing. Above all else, be sure to help kids stay safe in the sun by using sunblock routinely.
Adults and older adults– From early adulthood, it is vital to keep skin moisturized and protected. There are unlimited skincare regimes out there for every skin type and lifestyle. Depending on your budget, you can buy drug store products that work wonders or invest in boutique products that offer the moon and the stars in beautiful tubes and jars. Older adults have unique skincare needs that are addressed on a case-by-case matter. Skin loses its elasticity and can become easily bruised or torn. In later years, the damage caused earlier in life becomes apparent, and it is essential to screen for cancers or other skin-related diseases.
Throughout life, it is vital to care for your skin to prevent aging and stay healthy. Dermatologists are an excellent resource, as are estheticians who specialize in skincare. Be sure to do all you can at every age to prevent unnecessary effects of aging and help maintain that youthful appearance.
Tomorrow, I will share what I do for my skincare routine. It works for men as well. Until next time, please stay safe, and keep the faith.
