We all want the best for our skin, and part of that is to help it look as bright and youthful as possible for as long as possible. There is a lot of hype surrounding ‘anti aging miracles’, yet when you really look into it; there are so many simple solutions out there.
We’ve put together a list of some of these really simple things you can do to prevent or slow down skin aging; you’ll be surprised at how simple they are!
Upgrade and update your skincare routine
Older skin will require different levels of care than it did years before, so making simple changes to your skincare routine to reflect this is a great start. From using moisturises both morning and night rather than just in the morning for example; to always ensuring you remove your makeup at night, taking the time to upgrade your skincare routine will be really beneficial when it comes to achieving a youthful look.
Drink plenty of water and cut down on sugary drinks
You’ve no doubt heard the countless benefits of consuming a lot of water on a daily basis, but there is a lot of truth to all the hype there. 8 glasses of water a day is the recommended amount for a healthy and glowing complexion, as well as the other health benefits water provides; from speeding up our metabolisms to aiding cell repair. Cutting down on sugary drinks is really important too.

Ditch the bad habits and vices
Those bad habits and vices such as smoking and drinking alcohol regularly will soon take their toll on your skin and will age them dramatically. Ditch them with help from the likes of the NHS with their Stop Smoking Support website and you’ll soon see improvements in many areas of your life; especially your skin.
Ensure you get plenty of sleep and rest
Plenty of sleep and rest is required for our skin to rejuvenate and replenish; especially as part of our busy lives as we grow older. It’s recommended that you get between 6 and 8 hours of sleep each night so that your skin and the rest of your body can repair itself.
Use a good sun cream
Sun cream is so important for protecting our skin against conditions such as skin cancer, and it’s also important for when it comes to preventing premature aging. Even if you aren’t on holiday, you should always use a sun cream on sunny days, or at least a moisturiser with an SPF content to protect your sensitive facial skin from harmful sun rays.
