The first indications of aging in our bodies are frequently seen in our skin. For some people, these changes feel too sudden, leaving them no chance to reverse the effects. Luckily, while aging is irreversible and inevitable, with cosmetic technological advancements, it has never been easier to look younger.

This article will give you pointers on how to manage aging skin by adopting natural approaches and quality cosmetics to help you rejuvenate your look.

  1. Always use a rich antiaging moisturizer

Using quality antiaging skin moisturizers can make the difference between glowing and dull skin. For the best results, use high-quality products like the BL+ bioactive skincare cream, a unique formula that contains several active ingredients that work to hydrate, nourish, and prevent UV-induced collagen degradation. It leaves your skin with a smooth texture, restores firmness, and supports the skin barrier, leaving your skin feeling healthy and hydrated enough to maintain its integrity.

  1. Always wear SPF 50+

Sun damage is one of the main causes of aging skin, even if you spend most of your day indoors. After prolonged sun exposure, your skin cells have difficulty repairing and regenerating themselves, especially in old age. As you age, developing a routine of wearing SPF 50+ sunscreens with antioxidants will help reduce the damaging effects of UV rays on your skin. As such, your skin will always remain protected from direct UV light, prompting a healthy skin function.

  1. Use retinol or a retinoid

Skin creams, lotions, and serums often include a vitamin A derivative called retinol, which can help clear acne and has antiaging properties. Retinol-containing products are commonly accessible over-the-counter, and greater retinoid concentrations can be obtained with a prescription. Retinoids have a larger concentration of the substance, and because of how vitamin A is structured in this form, they can renew skin cells more quickly than retinol.

  1. Use a face serum with antioxidants

Antioxidant-infused skincare can help counteract the negative effects of free radicals and, over time, can help prevent and repair skin ageing symptoms like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dullness, and inflammation. Antioxidant serums help you have younger-looking, more even-toned skin.

  1. Drink a lot of water

Water helps retain the suppleness of your skin while keeping your body nourished and rejuvenated. People who drink a lot of water have a lower risk of developing wrinkles, scars, and soft lines and experience fewer ageing symptoms than those who consume less water.

Frequent physical activity can strengthen the immune system and enhance blood and nutrient circulation in your body, leading to a more youthful skin. What’s more, consuming a diet high in refined carbs or sugar can hasten ageing, but eating a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables may help avoid the damage that causes early skin ageing. Smoking should also be avoided when trying to rejuvenate your skin because it dramatically hastens the ageing process of the skin and results in crow’s feet and a lifeless skin complexion.

Beauty Muse: Taraji P Hensen

Hey beauty lovers! The beautiful Taraji P Hensen is the beauty muse this month. I am a huge fan of this gorgeous black woman. This American actress and author has an amazing skin and her facial features are simply beautiful. It is hard to believe she is actually 49 years old. She could easily pass as a woman in her early thirties. This woman is simply gorgeous!

I remember seeing Taraji P Hensen in her first role in Baby Boy. That movie was one of my favourite back in the day. I became a fan of Hensen immediately. It would be lovely to be a fly on her wall to see how she gets to keep her skin glowing this much. But since that is not possible, reading her interviews where she shares her skincare routine and beauty tips is the closest to spying I can get.

Here are some of her skincare and beauty secrets she shared with Vogue a few days ago –


For her makeup

“I just like to look refreshed…. I’d usually just pop a lash on and go!”

“I’m just showing off for y’all. I just want you to know I know how to do makeup.”

This is true, she usually wears her makeup light and the natural look works great for her.


Here a few more skincare tips she shared in a different interview with Glamour

I wash my face in the morning and at night. I drink a lot of water. You have to stay hydrated. As far as my hair…I wrap my hair at night because that’s less heat on it everyday. I’m a health whore, for lack of a better word. I love healthy hair and healthy skin. Also, I love skin that glows. That’s why I love this shea butter, because I put it on and I feel like, when I go home and I go to bed I take my clothes off, I feel like I’ve just put lotion on. And I only put it on once a day. I use the cream for my feet and I put socks on at night.


Her tips are spot on. Drinking a lot of water everyday does wonders for the skin and overall health. Washing the face morning and evening nourishes the facial skin and keeps it clean/moisturised. These tips definitely help the skin stay healthy and I can see they are working great for her.
