Light from the sun increases the production of melanin, a pigment that gives your skin its color. After a while, these spots appear when your skin has had too much exposure to sunlight.
Other skin changes you may notice first are fine lines, skin laxity, and discoloration.
7. The Cleaner, the Better
Sure, it’s essential to keep your skin clean. But make a point to find products that are gentle on your skin instead of stripping your skin of its natural oils.
You may think that exfoliating your skin day in and day out is fine and dandy. Some cleansers are beneficial to your skin and will clean it.
But don’t overdo it. Otherwise, you’ll get left with dry and damaged skin.
8. Chemical Peels Are Bad
The phrase chemical peels may be frightening, but this treatment isn’t as scary as it sounds.
Many treatments today are gentle. But it would help if you still got treated by an experienced specialist for the best outcome.
If you find yourself plagued by doubts, speak to the esthetician ahead of time. They’ll be able to answer any questions you may have.
After getting a chemical peel, your skin should be brighter with fewer age spots. Woohoo!
9. Collagen Creams Reverse Aging
Sorry to say it, but a good collagen cream can’t turn back time.
It can help you take care of your skin, but beyond that, it can’t banish wrinkles once and for all.
Applying collagen creams can slow down aging moving forward, but they won’t work miracles. It’s vital to cherish your skin by eating the right foods and exercising as well.
10. There’s Such Thing as a Perfect Routine
You may feel frustrated that you’re having difficulty finding effective skincare.
As much as you’d like the “perfect” beauty routine, it doesn’t exist. You can find products that improve your skin, but that doesn’t mean you won’t ever encounter skin issues.
Do your best to find products that don’t break out your skin. If you have sensitive skin, it may take you a while before finding the right products.
Treating your skin with items that keep it soft and supple is a good sign that you’re using the right stuff. Even though it’s not always “perfect,” it doesn’t mean it’s not helping your skin!
11. Topical Vitamin C Fights Aging
Applying vitamin C won’t harm your skin, but there’s no evidence it fights aging.
A 2017 study revealed that while vitamin C may not help with aging, it can reduce scars and heal wounds. So if you have scars, vitamin C may help with that!
As you can see, there are all sorts of anti-aging myths you may believe in. There are ways to treat aging, to be sure, but you may not always get the ideal results you’re seeking.
Maintaining that youthful glow is possible. But it should come from your inner beauty and not just outer beauty.
Care for yourself and your skin, and no matter your age, you’ll feel beautiful.
