Though we range in age here at Glitter Guide, pretty much everyone on our team has some concern about aging skin. Whether we are in our 20s living a more active lifestyle in bustling New York City, or adjusting to life as a new mom, we all try to do what we can to prevent wrinkles.
With a plethora of products on the market claiming to minimize fine lines, combat aging and more, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the options. So, today we’re sharing six solutions to combat aging skin, all of which are a cinch to work into your daily routine!
1. Hydrate and your skin will thank you.
Stay hydrated, but be careful about sipping through straws! As this interview from Allure states, using those muscles around your mouth can increase fine lines in that area, so forgo the straw and drink your H20 out of a glass instead.
2. Wear SPF every day.
Even if you don’t think you’ll “be in the sun,” your skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays every time you step outside. Avoid sun exposure during peak times, which fall between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
3. Cover up!
Protect the delicate skin around your eyes with a hat and sunglasses because this part of your face tends to be more prone to wrinkles than other areas. Don’t give your skin an excuse to age prematurely—seek some shade!
4. Apply an a.m. and p.m. serum.
We do our fair share of product sampling here at Glitter Guide and try a lot of lotions and creams that don’t quite fulfill the claims. So we are especially excited to tell you all about a product that we find actually lives up to our standards! Our new go-to? No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Anti Aging Serum.
All it takes is a pea-sized amount each morning and evening post-cleansing and toning, and your skin does the rest, absorbing all of those firming and anti-wrinkle ingredients. In case you’re curious about the science (we were!), the serum is powered by their unique anti-aging peptide blend Matrixyl 3000 Plus, Hylauronic Acid, and a patented antioxidant complex that all work together to visibly reduce the appearance of your lines (in just 4 weeks!) and give you that fresh-faced glow. Plus! It’s clinically proven to deliver anti-wrinkle results that actually get better over time. I’m excited to see them!
Caitlin recently had the opportunity to try out No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Anti Aging Serumfor herself, and had this to say about her experience:
BECAUSE I’M STILL TRYING TO BALANCE WORKING FULL-TIME WITH BEING A MOM, I HONESTLY DON’T REALLY HAVE TOO MUCH TIME TO THINK ABOUT SKINCARE. I LOOK FORWARD TO MY EVENING ROUTINE WHEN I HAVE FIVE MINUTES TO MYSELF AND CAN DECOMPRESS FROM THE DAY, BUT I WANT TO KNOW THE PRODUCTS I’M USING WILL ACTUALLY WORK TO HELP MY TIRED, FATIGUED SKIN.
I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW RELIEVED I WAS TO FIND THAT THIS SERUM WAS JUST AS EASY TO USE AS CLAIMED, AND THAT THE RESULTS WERE VISIBLE WITHIN JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS. THE BOTTOM LINE? THIS SERUM LEFT MY SKIN LOOKING AND FEELING LIKE IT WAS RUNNING ON A FULL NIGHT’S SLEEP, WHICH IS SUCH A PRICELESS NOVELTY IN MY LIFE AS A MOM!
5. Moisturize as much as you can.
Hydration is key to preventing wrinkles, so apply your favorite moisturizer several times throughout the day, especially in drier climates, during the colder months or when you’re traveling.
6. Exercise and eat healthy.
It’s a no-brainer for so many reasons. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, regular exercise and healthy eating habits also help prevent wrinkles. So, let’s all make a pact to stay active this season, and to enjoy those delicious organic fruits and veggies that summer is known for!
