We all know the signs of aging skin:
Fine lines. Wrinkles. Dark spots.
But it doesn’t have to be that way!
We can age and still have glowing, youthful skin. Trust me.
Here are our top 3 tips for better-looking skin...
Step 1. Wear Sunscreen
You need Collagen in your body.
It’s what keeps your skin flexible, so it can stretch instead of wrinkle.
When sunlight hits your skin, it breaks down Collagen and removes it from your body. Which means more wrinkles and premature aging.
One easy fix is to wear sunscreen daily. Even when it’s cloudy.
This keeps Collagen in your body and working to keep you looking young.
You should also use a moisturizer that boosts Collagen, like Retinoid Skin Rescue.
You’ll want to wear clothing that protects your skin. If you plan to stay outside for a while, add sunglasses, scarves, or hats.
In LA, the trend of driving gloves is really taking off to protect your hands from all those hours of driving in the sun when commuting.
However, you want to do it, protect your skin from the sun.
2. Limit Hot Water on Skin
Did you know that excessive use of hot water on the skin leads to faster aging skin?
So say goodbye to those scalding showers that strip your skin of nutrients and vitamins.
Try lukewarm water instead.
This keeps your natural face oils intact. These oils are so important because they keep your skin hydrated. Without these oils, your skin is dry, more likely to breakout, and shows signs of aging faster.
3. Drink More Water
Your body and skin need to be hydrated at all times.
In fact, the skin is actually an organ. It needs water to function.
We all know the 8 glasses a day rule: you should be drinking that much to keep your body hydrated.
But it’s hard to put into practice. Here’s what we do:
We tracked our water intake for a whole day and compared it to the recommended amount so we could see just how much we need to makeup.
We use a water bottle that has markings to show how much we should drink every few hours.
We use a daily checklist that has a spot for you to track how much water we’re drinking during the day.
4. Add Collagen
Remember that miracle skincare ingredient: Collagen?
Turns out, it’s super simple to add to your daily routine.
You can take a daily supplement (we set an alarm each morning).
Or you can add Unflavored Collagen Powder to your water.
For example, we mix our Unflavored Collagen Protein Powder
into our water bottle daily so we know we’re drinking enough water + keeping all our nutrients.
It makes a big difference in keeping your skin hydrated and youthful.
