6 Best Anti-Ageing Skincare for Women

Yesterday, while typing this 6 Best Anti-Ageing Skincare for Women post, I thought about how quickly the days have gone by. As I watched my kids play, my mind flashed back to the day they were born. They have grown so much since then and I have grown too.

Time waits for no one and as the years go by, it can start taking a toll on the skin. I noticed a couple of fine lines and I knew that I had to do something about it.

As women, we get engaged in so much work from our careers, pregnancy and childbirth, responsibilities at home and taking care of the family. All this can get you stressed out and add more to your years.

But who doesn’t want to look young and untouched by time? I’ve tried a couple of natural treatments that have helped my skin look radiant and youthful. Here are 6 of my favourite anti-ageing skincare treatments and routines.

 

Moisturize regularly

If you want to have youthful skin, it all starts with making sure that your skin is well-hydrated. Beautiful skin loves moisture, so you need to make sure that you moisturize regularly, especially on dry days.

Moisturizing your skin day and night will help you get rid of those fine lines which are often times the first signs of ageing.

 

Exfoliate

It’s not only the wrinkles what will make you look older. Exfoliating your skin at least once or twice a week will help transform dull skin. This is because exfoliating will help you remove the dead skin cells from your face and reveal new radiant skin.

But take note: don’t exfoliate too hard and if you have sensitive skin, I advice you make use of natural exfoliants like baking soda, brown sugar or oats. Also, make sure you apply a moisturizer each time you exfoliate.

 

Milk baths

Yes, milk can do wonders for your skin. Milk rejuvenates your skin. It contains Vitamin E which feeds your skin giving it that wonderful glow.

Add a few cups of milk to your bath water and soak yourself in the bathtub. If you don’t have a bathtub to soak in, you can dip a wash cloth or a ball of cotton into the milk and dab the milk on your face. Your skin will thank you for it, and you can thank me later!

Potato face pack

Who would have thought that there are so many benefits hidden within the potato? Potatoes help regenerate collagen which is responsible for skin elasticity. This will also help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.

To prepare a potato face pack, all you have to do is to extract the juice of a raw potato and apply the juice on your skin with a cotton ball. Allow the potato juice to stay on your skin for 15 minutes, then wash off with cool water.

 

Avocado mask

Avocados are known to have potent medicinal properties. It fights off free radicals and helps to boost the production of collagen. Collagen production helps to diminish wrinkles and fine lines.

For the avocado mask, mash an avocado and apply the paste on your face. Let the paste lie on your face for 10 minutes then wash off the paste and pat your skin dry with a towel.

Lemon juice

Lemon juice contains high levels of Vitamin C making it excellent for removing blemishes and age spots that appear over time with age.

To experience the benefits of lemon, squeeze its juice into a container and apply the juice on your face or only on the troubled area. If you have sensitive skin, make sure you dilute the lemon juice with water as the juice may be harsh on your skin. Leave the juice on your skin for 10 minutes and rinse off.

How to Get Rid of Sleep Lines

Who doesn’t like a nice long sleep? It has been scientifically proven that a good night’s rest is beneficial for our overall well-being, so we all need it. A good night sleep helps us feel alert, refreshed and puts us in a good mood. Adequate sleep also makes your skin look really healthy too, which is a great beauty plus.

But as good as sleep can be, it leaves behind sleep lines. This comes about as a result of sleeping on side with the side of your face on the pillow for several hours.

Sleep lines look a lot like wrinkles. If they are not attended to immediately they can be on the face for a long time, which can be annoying. Here are some tips you can try out straightaway, to leave the skin looking nice and smooth free from sleep lines.

  1. Slap the sleep lines from your face

This may sound funny, but slapping yourself actually gets rid of sleep lines. This is because as you slap yourself the blood starts flowing to the area where the sleep line is and starts to make your face looking nice and plump. This drastically reduces the sleep lines on your face.

  1. Fold your sleep lines outwards

When a sleep line appears it looks like a crevasse. There’s a depression in your skin and your skin doesn’t look smooth.

To get rid of the sleep lines, another effective method is to fold your skin where the sleep line is outwards. So instead of the crevasse from going deep in your skin it is pushed out. Make sure you don’t press so hard. All you are looking for is for your skin to even out.

Once you have folded your skin outwards, hold it there for a couple of minutes, then go to the next set of sleep lines.

  1. Pinch your sleep lines out

This tip is closely related to the folding your skin outwards, but the idea behind it is quite different. Pinching the area where the sleep lines are helps to activate the blood vessels. This will help blood to circulate around the area, which will help bring back the elasticity of your skin.

It may hurt a bit but you need to be extra careful not to pinch so hard. The last thing you want is a nasty bruise from all the pinching.

  1. Moisturize the sleep lines out of your face

Moisturizing is a great way to remove the sleep lines. When your skin has moisture, its elasticity is restored. Your skin looks rejuvenated. The water in the moisturizer hydrates the skin and your skin responds perfectly to this.

To increase the effectiveness of moisturizer for your sleep lines, try massaging the moisturizer into your skin. Gently massage your skin in circular motions. This will help awaken the blood vessels and promote proper circulation of blood to your face. This will also help create youthful glow in the process.
