One of the most important things to do on a daily basis is to keep your skin clean. Get into the habit of washing your face every morning and every night. Just by doing this, you will get those old, dead cells off the top layer of your skin to reveal a much younger-looking, fresh and pretty glow.
Clean your face with a gentle cleanser and exfoliate with a good old-fashioned terry washcloth. After your skin is clean, apply a good moisturizer to keep your skin soft and hydrated. In the morning, make sure you are using a moisturizer that contains a sunscreen because nothing ages you faster than those harmful UV rays. At night, you can use a moisturizer that contains alpha hydroxy, Retin-A or collagen building agents. Any of these do a good job of helping you wake up to fresh skin.
At least once a week, use a deep cleaning mask to pull impurities and toxins out of your skin through the pores, which should also help to shrink the pores. Unfortunately, pores get larger as you age, so the mask will do double duty by pulling out the bad stuff, and making the pores smaller and tighter.
Another of the good daily routines to get into the habit of is to supplement your diet with a good multi-vitamin. Sometimes you just can't eat right because of a hectic schedule, and you want to make sure your skin is getting all the proper vitamins and nutrients on a daily basis. Drinking a lot of water and green tea will drench your skin in antioxidants and keep in hydrated, both of which are essential for a younger look.
Try to eat more fruits and veggies and your skin will thank you. Summer is a perfect time to munch on those raw veggies and enjoy an extra helping of fruit salad. I just discovered my love of sunflower seeds! They are so good and are good for my skin, too! Try them in a salad.
Get in the habit of getting more sleep. Sometimes it is difficult, I know, but your cells and therefore your skin really need the downtime to renew and rejuvenate. A consistent lack of sleep will result in bags under your eyes, a pale look, and ultimately, wrinkles.
Another of the winning daily routines is to get more exercise. Get that heart rate up and blood pumping. If you do, you will have better circulation and the better your circulation, the better your skin will look. Exercise will not only whittle your waist, but it will give you a rosy glow.
Starting immediately, you can put into action some very easy daily routines to make your face look younger, which will make all the rest of you look and feel younger, too.
