Beautiful, flawless-looking skin is a difficult quality to obtain, and as the years begin to mount, it can become increasingly difficult to maintain. Aging skin is an inevitability, but it does not need to be taken lying down. There are a number of steps that you can take in addition to your SeneDerm SkinCare regimen to blunt the effects of time, and many of them have to do with breaking bad habits and forming new ones in their place.
There is no greater cause of harm to your skin than the sun, particularly if you have an affinity for being tan. According to WebMD.com, the sun’s ultraviolet rays penetrate the skin and damage subcutaneous fibers that keep it firm. This creates a greater potential for wrinkling over time, not to mention the increased likelihood of age spots or even skin cancer.
This is not to say that you should avoid the sun altogether, though you may want to consider cutting sunbathing out of your summer itinerary almost completely. When you do get out in the sun, you will want to make it a point to wear an SPF 15 or greater. When you layer MakeSense Foundation over SeneDerm DayTime Moisturizer, you will have mechanical sun protection equivalent to an SPF 30.
Remove makeup before bed:
The compulsion to sleep in your makeup after a long night out or a particularly stressful day at the office may seem great, but if you want to keep your skin looking better longer, make certain to stop and remove your makeup. Health.com notes that toxins in the air collect on the skin and in the pores in great quantities on a daily basis; leaving those toxins unchecked can create both short- and long-term complexion problems. To help counteract the absorption of toxins to begin with, you can use SeneGence products such as SeneSerum-C and MakeSense Advanced Anti-Aging Foundation that include SeneShield™, a blend of ingredients which helps protect cells from free radical damage. However removing makeup with Fooops Color Remover and cleansing with SeneDerm 3-in-1 Cleanser daily are necessary steps for healthy skin.
The American Academy of Dermatology not only recommends washing your face prior to bed, but getting into the habit of washing twice a day (morning and evening) using warm water and cleanser. By washing more than once a day, you not only cut down on the grime built up between washes, you eliminate potential for outbreaks or other unsightly issues with your complexion.
Treat yourself well
The way you live your life from day-to-day might have a greater impact on your skin quality than you think. According to AAD.org, smoking is one of the major causes of aging skin due to the presence of toxins in cigarette smoke. Symptoms commonly cited as stemming from smoking tobacco products include dryness, looseness, lines and wrinkles and a leathery complexion.
What you eat also influences the health of your skin. AAD.org recommends a balanced diet of fruits and vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats as a way to ensure better skin quality. Eating too much sugary or fatty foods can lead to blocked pores, which can lead to acne and other unsightly issues. GoodHousekeeping.com also notes the importance of drinking enough water every day, as being hydrated helps give your skin a healthy sheen.
After you have removed your makeup and washed your face, make sure that you get a good night’s sleep. AAD.org recommends getting good rest as a means to restore your body’s curative abilities and keep your skin resilient and strong. You have worked hard for your beautiful complexion, and you deserve to keep it as long as possible. By following these steps, you can be assured that your skin will stay smoother and younger longer.
