You can’t reverse time, but you can reverse the damage it does to your skin, at least to an extent. Anti-aging tips or reversing your beauty clock is nothing more than taking care of your body and mind, here and now.
First things first, make a routine. Yes, after a sleep, work, exercising and eating routine, you also need a beauty routine to look younger! But why a routine? Simply put, we have lived with the sun and its natural clock for centuries. So to return to the natural rate and state of aging, we must set a routine! Embracing the sun, however, does not mean we stop using sun screen (your skin’s best friend). The sun may be where it was, the UV reaching earth have certainly become overenthusiastic. So anti-aging tip number two, halve your skin exposure.
Among so of the hundreds of anti-aging tips and routines trolling the internet, here’s the most logical one: cleanse, use a dermatologist-recommended anti-aging serum, moisturize, use sunscreen with minimum SPF 30 and lastly, sleep well.
But skin care to beat aging isn’t as easy as using some creams. You’ve got to put your money where your mouth is, literally. So beware of that fast food, it also increases the pace at which you age.
