Thankfully, upgrading your skin care routine can slow down the signs of aging, resulting in glowing and supple skin.
Here are a few pointers that will help you age more gracefully with better looking skin:
Fortunately, African American women have higher amounts of melanin in their skin that protects it from ruthless sun damage. Harmful UV rays can potentially intensify the signs of aging or worse could lead to skin cancer.
However, this does not mean you step outside under the sun without wearing sunscreen. Invest in a good quality sunscreen and make it a part of your daily skin care regimen. Apply the sunscreen from head to toe to protect your lovely dark skin from sun damage.
Ditch the Soap
Maturing skin tends to be more delicate and thinner, hence invest in quality skin care products. Opt for non-soap cleansers that will not strip away natural oils from your skin. Most often, soaps contain harmful detergents that rid the skin of essential oils, leaving it dry, chalky and tight.
Opt for gentler cleansers for African American skin instead and consider cleansing your face only once a day if you have dry skin. Do not forget to moisturize!
Cleanse, tone and moisturize, that is how a typical beauty regimen goes. However, do not forget to exfoliate. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells which may have built up on your skin, causing it to appear dull and lifeless. Consider investing in a good exfoliator for black skin and exfoliate your face once a week.
Natural ingredients, such as yogurt, not only hydrate your skin but exfoliate it too. Apply a spoonful of plain yogurt on your skin and let it set for about 20 minutes for beautiful, glowing skin.
Treat Yourself Well
As you mature, your skin starts displaying signs of aging. All these changes are a result of hormonal imbalance and metabolism changes in your body.
For younger and more radiant looking skin, switch to a healthier diet and consume less caffeinated and alcoholic drinks. Once you start taking care of yourself, you will notice significant changes on your skin. Drink plenty of water, eat your green foods and get plenty of beauty sleep.
Remember not to stress too much, aging is a natural part of life, embrace it and keep smiling.
That’s it for this week. As always …
