5 Tips for Beginners Anti-Ageing Skincare

 

With increasing stressful and unhealthy lifestyles, skin-ageing is becoming a growing concern for us. The first signs of ageing can start as early as mid-20s and it is important to identify these subtle changes in our skin and take the right steps to ensure healthy, youthful looking skin. While wrinkles appear much later, dryness and dull/uneven skin are the early signs that should alert you about the changing needs of your skin. I started noticing changes in my skin when I was around 25-26. My formerly oily skin began getting more and more dry patches and while the t-zone stayed oily, I noticed longer periods of dehydration which an oil-free moisturizer just couldn’t fix. Today I’m sharing my top 5 tips that can help ease you into a beginners anti-ageing skin care routine.

Tip 1 : Switch to a gentle face wash

Harsh face washes do more harm than good and switching to a mild and gentle face wash is one of the best things you can do for your skin! I prefer using gel-based, non-foaming face washes that don’t leave my skin feeling dry and stretchy. Avoid face washes that produce too much lather and check the ingredient list. Ingredients to avoid would be Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and ingredients to look for would be humectants like Glycerin that help retain moisture.

 

Tip 2 : Anti-ageing moisturizer + Sun protection

As my skin transitions from oily to combination, finding the right kind of day moisturizer became a challenge. Most anti-ageing moisturizers felt too rich and my usual oil-free moisturizers just didn’t feel nourishing enough anymore. When Olay launched their Total Effects Lightweight Moisturizer early this year, I was ecstatic as the texture was just what I was looking for. It combines all the benefits of the Total Effects range with a light, non-greasy, fast-absorbing formula that is works very well for the Indian skin type. According to Olay’s Multi Ethnicity Skin Study, Indian women have a weak skin barrier as compared to other ethnicities, which means retaining moisture is harder, making this product ideal for Indian skin and weather conditions.

Diet & Exercise

Diet : Three words – Fluids, Fibre and Fats! My skin is at its best when I drink 2.5-3 liters of water daily and make sure to include a fair amount of fruit and salad servings in my daily intake. Water and fibre together help in flushing out toxins from the body which reflects on the skin. And lastly, healthy sources of fat like nuts, olive oil, sunflower oil and seeds and avocados provide essential fatty acids which are required by the skin to maintain a healthy skin barrier and glow.

Exercise : This one is a no-brainer and we all know that regular exercise is the key to a healthy body and that includes the skin as well! Exercise boosts circulation, leads to better delivery of nutrients around the body and I’m sure you’ve noticed the healthy flush your skin acquires after a good workout session! So start including a brisk walk or a quick jog in your daily routine to get naturally, glowing skin.

1. Never let the makeup stay on

It is very essential to always clean up your face before you hit the bed. Makeup contains chemicals that may clog up your pores and that could lead to breakouts. Always use a dedicated makeup remover or cleansing oil for removing makeup. For those long, tiring days when doing a whole routine may not be possible, keep some makeup remover wipes at your bedside table.

 

2. Befriend workouts that make you sweat

Sweat helps you release toxins through your skin. Workouts help you eliminate those toxins as well as add a healthy flush on your face. Do shower after workouts to wash away the sweat and grime from your skin though, or you’re back to square one.
