images-1“If I had known then, what I know now.” Women and men all over Milwaukee, Wisconsin and the world say this phrase. Many times it is along the line of their skin routines and what they wish they would of done. There are many products on the shelf and procedures out there that that can help you look younger and fresher after wrinkles and lines start to set in, but what about before that happens? It’s never to late to start some great anti-aging routines no matter your age.

SUNSCREEN!

This cannot be reiterated enough. It doesn’t matter if the sun isn’t shining. 80% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet light can pass through clouds and fog. Raw exposure to the sun can lead to wrinkles, age spots, and cancer. Lather up that SPF and apply it to your skin STAT!

Exercise

Having a regular exercise routine helps release toxins in your body and helps flush out cellular debris out of the system. Basically you are cleaning your skin from the inside. Exercise also helps relieve stress, which is another cause of wrinkles and fine lines. So lace up those tennis shoes and try and at least walk 30 minutes a day 3 times a week and have 2 days of weight training. Your skin and body will thank you.

Hydrate

Drinking water will also help flush out toxins in the body, but will give you so many other benefits as well. 8 glasses of water each day is the suggested amount to drink. Increasing your water intake will also give you a radiant glow that will be more powerful than any anti-aging product out there.

Moisturize!

Having a daily moisturizer will help leaps and bounds when it comes to looking younger. We recommend doing some research to help find the perfect moisturizer for your skin type. We also suggest finding a moisturizer with a SPF in it. In cold weather, or even after taking a shower, the wind and water can strip away the natural moisture in your face. Replenishing this moisture is key and making it a daily routine will help make your skin look softer, younger, and all around amazing.

Combining all of these steps will help keep your skin in great condition and again, it is never too late to start.
