When You Look Young, You Feel Young

When you look in the mirror, do you see a person that looks older or younger than your actual age? If you see an older person staring back at you, you have a problem. Usually, it is your skin that is making you look older than your actual age. If you have premature wrinkles or blotchy skin, think about how other people may perceive you if they saw your skin as well. If you want to look younger instead of older, read over the information in this article.

Premature wrinkles and dark spots are usually caused by the cumulative exposure to the sun's radiation. Your face has been exposed to the sun everyday since the day you were born. The UV effects accumulate within your skin cells. When your are young, you are still growing and your skin is still rejuvenating, so the sun's negative effects are not as apparent. However, when you get older, your skin's ability to rejuvenate decreases. Your skin that has been subjected to a lifetime of UV exposure is finally showing the negative effects.

That means you should limit your exposure to the sun. Never go out without applying a protective later of sunscreen. This is true for sunny days as well as cloudy days because UV rays can penetrate through clouds. Apply sunscreen on your face, neck, chest, arms and anywhere else that is subject to sun exposure. When you use a sunscreen religiously, you block out the harmful effects from the UV rays and prevent the premature development of dark spots and wrinkles.

Dry, flaky skin can make skin look older because they can make tiny wrinkles look deeper. To minimize that look, apply a moisturizer to your face that is formulated for your skin type. Everyone's skin is different. If your friend has oily skin and you have dry skin, your skin care products will differ from hers. She may not need a moisturizer, but you will. So, find out what moisturizer works best with your skin type and use that to minimize the look of wrinkles.

The accumulation of dead skin and oils on your face can make your complexion look dull. That can make your wrinkles look deeper and more noticeable. In this case, you will need to exfoliate your skin to allow new skin beneath to come forth. The new skin will give your face a new glow that you have long been missing.

Follow healthy lifestyle habits like eating a healthy diet and not smoking. What you put into your body has direct effects on how healthy your skin looks. If your skin is not getting the nutrients that it needs, it will definitely show on your face. Drink lots of water to keep your skin soft and hydrated because your cells are mostly made up of water. Reduce stress in your life, and get more sleep.

These tips will help you retain the youthful look that you want. Follow this advice, and you will soon be getting lots of compliments.
