Believe it or not, you don't have to go out of your way to add anti aging skincare onto your to-do list. With just a few tweaks here and there and a few specialized beauty products, you can be on your way to younger-looking skin in no time - all without having to change up your beauty regimen. Here are a few new things to do.
1. Toner. These products can help shrink your pores, which tend to get bigger as you age. Allure magazine suggests using one with salicylic acid, like La Thérapie Glycolic Clarité Renew Peaux Neuves - Glycolic Clarifying Lotion for skin resurfacing, which will dissolve the oil that builds up inside and stretches them out.
2. Sunscreen. To prevent age spots, fine lines and premature aging of your skin cells, you need to protect your whole body from the sun. Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 30 Rock and Roller Ball Sunscreen is an invisible, lightweight powder you can apply in a breeze.
3. Don't drink or smoke! Cigarette smoke has outrageous aging properties that can make your skin dull and leathery in no time, destroying most of your collagen and elastin. Alcohol can increase inflammation in your blood stream, making your skin look saggy. So not cute.
