The aging process is a natural process that appears slowly. As soon as they reach the stage of their thirties, women begin to notice some effects of aging such as fine lines and dark spots on the skin. With the passage of time after that, the skin begins to lose its elasticity, which inevitably leads to the appearance of wrinkles at the age of fifty. Despite this, there are some ways that help slow down the aging process and enjoy the vitality and youth of the skin for as long as possible. With proper skin care according to the age stage, you will be able to combat aging and its unpleasant effects on your skin.

Here are some beauty secrets that every woman should know to maintain younger looking skin.

how to keep a young face

Anti-aging: focus on vitamin C

A dose of vitamin C every day is ideal. Lemon juice in tea, water, raw vegetables, yogurt… Plus a vitamin C serum in the morning on the face, neck, décolleté and back of the hands. As for cream, it is better to choose formulas containing at least 5% of vitamin C. The effects appear after six months of application.
Why does it work? A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C protects against UV-induced damage and stimulates the production of collagen by the skin. This allows it to fight against wrinkles. It also has an effect on the radiance of the complexion. It becomes more luminous if one uses a care which contains some (Idealia Pro of Vichy, for example).

Anti-aging: don’t go without a night cream

The idea that it is better to let your skin “breathe” during the night seems to me to be totally crazy! From the age of 45, if you don’t put anything on your skin before going to bed, it risks losing its lipids during sleep. If you have normal skin, you can choose a cream for dry skin. Finally, if you don’t like this sensation, you don’t have to use a thick cream.

Why does it work?

The contribution in lipids plays an extremely important role whatever the type of skin. It is thanks to them that the skin preserves its balance, protects itself and defends itself against the external aggressions. Therefore, choose an anti-aging skin care product that contains enough “fat” (Substiane + by La Roche-Posay, for example).

Anti-aging: relax your face

Recent studies have highlighted the importance of sleep for the beauty of the skin. No cream can really erase the fatigue that shows up on the face. The only solution is to rest, to get enough sleep, to de-stress. The more sleep you get, the more dark circles appear and the duller your complexion becomes. Moral: on nights when it’s possible, go to bed earlier, and at 10 p.m. maximum, go to sleep.

Why does it work?

We all know intuitively that our features are much more rested when we have slept well. This is confirmed by various chronobiology studies, which have shown that our body, and therefore our skin, recovers at night. It is from 1 a.m. that it starts to repair itself. Thus, during the day, it protects itself better against the aggressions.

Massage Your skin with sesame oil

Sesame oil is one of the most effective natural oils to combat skin aging. Use a few drops of sesame oil to massage the skin in the morning. It can also be used after showering. This helps stimulate blood flow within the skin to maintain its freshness and health. It also moisturizes the skin to get rid of layers of dead skin.

Avoid processed sugars

Processed sugars cause damage to collagen in the body and skin, which leads to sagging skin and the appearance of wrinkles. Processed sugars are found in soda, candy, baked goods and cake. Avoid excessive intake of these foods, as they make you look older and cause skin aging.

Anti-aging: we say no to bags!

In case of bags under the eyes, it is not recommended to sleep flat, either on the stomach or on the back. Indeed, when the head is too low, the lymphatic drainage of the face is less efficient. The solution is to sleep with a pillow that supports the head well, preferably in a cool room. It is also important to avoid applying a cream that is too greasy near the eyes in the evening at bedtime.

Why does it work?

When you lie down, water tends to stagnate in the vessels, which causes swelling. If you wake up with puffiness, press alternately with two fingers on the lower eyelids: it drives out the water, and the eyes deflate little by little.

Anti-aging: massage your tense features

For the face too, massage deserves to be rehabilitated! Over time, expression lines can give the face a hard, contracted appearance, perpetually worried. If you can’t remove a wrinkle, you can, however, relax the features. When you apply your cream morning and night, simply smooth your skin with the fingers of both hands, using upward movements.

Why does it work?

During the massage, the body secretes antioxidant hormones. This also stimulates local skin microcirculation. This improves the exchange and oxygenation of the tissues. It is therefore a good natural anti-wrinkle that relaxes the face. A real “plus” that amplifies the action of the cream and the penetration of the active ingredients.

Anti-aging: redesigning eyebrows and lips

As we age, our eyebrows tend to fall or become flat. However, their curve is very important because it structures the eyes and gives the face its balance. The ideal is to redefine them with permanent makeup. The same goes for the lip contour. On the other hand, if your upper lip has become thinner, avoid: often, the line is too dark and the result looks old.

Why does it work?

Under the effect of gravity, the face loses its firmness with the years. As a result, the eyebrows and lips change shape, which modifies the face as a whole. By redesigning them with permanent makeup, we restore balance to the face. It is as if we were giving it a new structure. A real youthful look.

How to take good care of your body

Anti-aging: take care of your hands

We take much more care of our face, even our body, than our hands. From the age of 50 onwards, you really have to take care of them if you don’t want them to be marked and betray your age. Rather than applying a mask to this area, I recommend using Bépanthène ointment, intended for babies’ bottoms, as a night cream. It is a cheap product and very well tolerated.

Why does it work?

Our hands are attacked all day long. As they only have a thin hydrolipidic film, they need to be “creamed” regularly, avoid excessive heat and cold, and wipe them with a towel (instead of using an electric hand dryer… or nothing at all). Otherwise, the skin dries out and the limescale attacks its protective barrier. You should also protect them as much as possible from the sun. By putting on, for example, small thin cotton gloves for gardening or by putting on mittens for cycling.

Eat plenty of antioxidants

Eating large amounts of antioxidant sources at an early age helps fight free radicals that cause skin aging. These free radicals come from a lack of proper nutrition, the accumulation of toxins and harmful environmental factors. Therefore, it is imperative to consume adequate amounts of foods rich in antioxidants during the diet and skin care routine as well. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and nuts are all rich sources of antioxidants.

Anti-aging: cream your legs every day

You don’t have to wait until you’re 65, but apply cream twice a day from the age of 40. Because the skin, already thin on the shins, thins a little more with time, and the sun makes things worse… The best moisturizing creams, on this often deprived zone, are milks or “barrier” balms, intended for atopic skins, for example. Because they contain more lipids than the others.

Why does it work?

The better the skin on the legs is hydrated, the better it resists aging and shocks, which leave scars after a certain age. From the ankles to the knees, we apply a nourishing care by massaging morning and evening (Trixera + of Avène, for example).

Anti-aging: cleanse your skin thoroughly

After the summer, it is essential to clean your skin thoroughly, because it has thickened to protect itself from the sun. It may also have been damaged by UV rays, become more oily, with the formation of small blackheads… The best thing to do is to apply a gentle exfoliation or a peeling with AHAs (fruit acids) in the evening, once or twice a week. Then apply an anti-aging cream or serum. The skin recovers perfectly after one to three months of treatment.

Why does it work?

Exfoliating the skin with an AHA product (Retexturing Activator by SkinCeuticals, for example) helps it to renew itself. In addition, when the skin is better cleansed, the active ingredients are more effective and can penetrate to the superficial dermis. This type of treatment is suitable for all skin types, except sensitive skin.

Anti-aging: protect yourself from spots

With the years, the skin is less well protected. Therefore, in all seasons, it is important to wear a sun care product when you are outside. At age 40, use SPF 40. At age 50, use SPF 50 on the face, neckline and hands. If you work outside, you should think about protective makeup that contains anti-UV filters. Some tinted compacts have an SPF 30, which is good. But an index 15 is better than nothing!

Why does it work?

Under the effect of age, UV rays and hormones, melanocytes (the cells that release melanin, the pigment of the skin) function in an anarchic way. Hence the appearance of spots from the forties. It is better to prevent them with an anti-UV care product (Sun Fluid matifying 50 + from Eucerin, for example). Because eliminating them is often long and tedious.

Anti-agein : we (re)make a beautiful skin

It is partly thanks to its texture that our skin shines. Several steps are necessary to restore its radiance. First, a good daily make-up removal and cleaning (without stripping)… even if you don’t wear make-up. Then, on occasion, a care with fruit acids or vitamin C. Useful also: drink enough and consume enough good fats (essential fatty acids) ensuring its flexibility and elasticity.

Why does it work?

The skin’s radiance depends on the care we give it on a daily basis. And occasional boosts, with a product containing AHAs (Actif Pur A 60 citric acid from Etat Pur, for example), which helps it renew itself. Moisturizing care should contain essential lipids such as ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids naturally present in the skin to rebuild the skin barrier.

Anti-aging: watch your waistline

Between the ages of 40 and 50, under the influence of hormones, the body changes… And, if we are not careful, we easily gain a kilo and a centimeter of waistline per year. It is therefore a time when you should not let yourself go (too much). The solution: regular physical activity to preserve muscle and avoid storing extra fat!

Why does it work?

The decrease in metabolism, linked to aging, and hormonal fluctuations as we approach menopause can put our figure at risk. As well as changes in our rhythm and lifestyle: children leaving home, no more outings to restaurants with friends… So, we stay vigilant, we do a little sport and we don’t let the kilos settle!
