No one believes me when I tell them that I’m already over 40 years old. Want to know my secret? It’s nothing unheard of. But first, you need to truly love yourself in order to put some effort into the way you look. This is not some gibberish – if you want young-looking skin for as long as possible, you need to work for it. But believe me when I tell you that the work is fun. Keep on reading if you want to learn more about my experience, lifestyle and everything else that keeps my skin elastic, radiant and healthy.
Everyday skin routine
It’s important that you get to know your skin. This doesn’t only involve your skin type but also good perception of how your skin changes over time. If you’re attentive you can see for yourself when it’s time to switch up your skincare products. This is how I go about my regular creams and cleansers. However, there’s nothing like nature to breathe life into your skin. That’s why I love using natural homemade masks and tonics as much as possible. There are plenty of mask recipes that you can try out. My favorite though is undoubtedly honey and avocado mask. It feeds, rejuvenates and soothes the skin perfectly.
Twice a week I make sure that I exfoliate and massage my skin. You don’t have to do these steps at the same time. In general, dead skin cells can create unflattering texture on your skin, while the dirt and environmental toxins can cause some serious irritations, especially if your skin is sensitive. Again, I listened to my skin’s needs and regularly switched between harsher and milder exfoliating products. What’s more, face massage can do wonders for the elasticity of your skin. I usually use my fingers and some of my favorite natural oils for this step. Make upward circular motions as you massage your face so that you can boost circulation and get a natural face lift.
The amazing beauty treatments
I, too, was reluctant when it came to modern-day skin treatments. I didn’t really believe in their effectiveness and, frankly, I felt a bit embarrassed to try them out. This all changed the first time I decided to try microdermabrasion. Yes my dear ladies, beauty skin treatments are there to help rejuvenate your skin. This doesn’t mean that you have to become a salon regular, but you deserve to do something nice for yourself once in a while. This is how I finally went through with professional lip lift at Sydney beauty parlor. And I can tell you that this decision changed the way I look and feel about myself. There’s nothing wrong with using advancements in beauty world in order to become a better and happier you.
When I say that you should stay responsible I refer to the way you live your life. Healthy eating habits, regular exercise and limited consumption of alcohol will only benefit you. A glass of red wine is great for circulation but don’t overdo it. What’s more, I make it a point to remove all of my makeup every night before I go to sleep, take my vitamins on schedule and fill my day with things that make me smile. Sometimes, the key to your beautiful and youthful face comes from the inside.
Don’t think of me as someone special. I’m just like you. It’s just that I learned that the most important love you can receive is the one you feel towards yourself. Once I realized that, taking care of my skin and leading a fulfilling life became as natural as breathing to me. And since I constantly get compliments about looking 10-15 years younger, the effort was definitely worth it.
