Tip #1. The “secret weapon”
What do you do when you have slept late and have to wake up very early, leaving no time for your skin to recover? The answer is boost your skin by taking a few minutes to treat it. Start with a thorough cleansing, continue with a toner, and do not forget your moisturizer, massaging it gently into your skin.
Tip #2. Don’t make the face
From all the beauty tips for the face, this one might sound silly but its one that you wouldn’t have though of. Making faces and adopting signature facial expressions creates folds and wrinkles between the brows and eyes. Simply being aware of your facial expressions, particularly in the sun, will stop them appearing in the first place.
Tip #3. Yes to peeling!
Frequent exfoliation removes dead cells more easily and strengthens new ones. You should, however, be kind to your skin, because a painful exfoliation will irritate it. To achieve the perfect result, give yourself a light massage with circular movements.
Tip #4. Use a face mask
What do you know about sleep masks? Not those silk ones that Audrey Hepburn wore at Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but the moisturizer ones. You apply them after your evening treatment and in the morning you wake up fresher than ever before!
Tip #5. The help of a specialist
And do not forget, sometimes the intervention of an expert is the best choice. So, you can contact an aesthetician or dermatologist to give you deep exfoliation. Do not overdo it, twice a year should be the maximum!
Tip #6. Anti-Oxidants
Antioxidants present in various foods are known for their beneficial properties. In particular, they enhance your skin’s defences against ultraviolet solar radiation and environmental pollution. So choose foods rich in vitamins A, C and E, such as tomatoes, berries and green vegetables.
Tip #7. Omega-3 anyone?
Foods rich in ω-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, olive oil and walnuts, strengthen the membrane of the skin cells, resulting in a stronger barrier against environmental hazards.
