Protect your skin from the sun

Out of all the recommendations to keep your skin looking young, protecting your skin from the sun is by far the most important. Not to mention that it will reduce your risk of developing skin cancer! Therefore, it’s important to apply a broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen every day, rain or shine. Reapply your sunscreen every two hours or after excessive sweating or swimming.

Follow a regular skin care routine

Another way to keep your skin looking young is to follow a regular skin care routine with products made for your skin type. One of the most important parts of a skin care routine is cleansing the skin to remove buildup of excess oil, dirt, makeup and dead skin cells. Neglecting to cleanse your face can not only lead to acne and frequent breakouts, but it can also cause lines and wrinkles. This is because the buildup of these not so pleasant substances can permeate deep into your skin through your pores, leading to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are two proteins that are necessary to keep the skin firm, smooth, and wrinkle free. Thus, to keep these proteins intact it’s important to regularly cleanse your face.
