Here is a beauty regime which will keep the aging at bay and gives you a glowing skin:

Morning Beauty Regime

Your skin needs a refreshing start with the beginning of the day and therefore you should give extra care to it after waking up.

Wash your face

Use a non soap cleanser and warm water to remove dirt and oil from your face so when you apply any kind of makeup (thick like creams or thin like gels) then it can easily penetrate into your skin.

Treat the skin near eyes

This region has the most sensitive skin and therefore the signs of aging appear first in this region in forms of fine lines, wrinkles and crow feet. The skin around the eyes is generally thinner and drier therefore you should apply a pea size amount of cream on this area with your ring finger which applies the least pressure. Apply the cream starting from inner corners of eyes and then move out towards the temples.

Moisturize the skin

Whenever we wash our face then it loses some of the natural moisture which need to be replenished otherwise the skin will become dehydrated. Moisture balance is very important to reduce the appearance of fine lines, control oil production and prevent sensitivity. Take dime size amount of moisturizer of your skin type and apply it on your cheeks and massage it over your face, neck and chest. If it doesn’t contain SPF then apply a sunscreen after applying moisturizer.

Night Beauty Regime 

You must take care of your skin before retiring for the night so that you can wake up with a less tired skin. Here are the following steps to clean and care the skin at night

Wash and exfoliate

Clean your face with a gentle cleanser like you did in the morning. Use an exfoliating cleanser once a week to remove the dead skin cells which give your face an uneven texture.

Treat the skin near your eyes

Use the same cream which you have applied in the morning time

Apply serum on the skin

These are rich in active ingredients and go deeper into the skin than the moisturizer to repair your skin. These are light weight, super hydrating and don’t clog the skin pores so if you have trouble spots like age spots, hyper pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles then take pea size amount of serum on back of your hand and apply it on the trouble spot with your ring finger.

Use night cream

These are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants to help in repairing skin damage. Take dime size amount and apply it to your cheeks and massage it to your face, neck and chest.

Try this beauty regime and you can maintain a healthy and flawless skin.

Here are some formulas to treat your trouble spots:

For puffy eyes

– It occurs due to slow blood circulation and weakening of eye ligaments as you age. Use a cream with aloe vera and caffeine which will soothe swelling and increase circulation around the eyes.

Dark circles

– it can happen with many reasons ranging from heredity to lack of sleep. In this case, the blood gets pooled in the blood vessels under eyes and it can be treated by increasing circulation around eyes. Use a cream with caffeine or grapeseed extract to boost circulation.

Crow’s feet

– the wrinkles on the corners of the eyes become visible with ageing as the firming protein, collagen breaks down over time. Use a cream with amino acids to increase the collagen production in the body to fight off these wrinkles.

For crepey skin

– with aging, the skin loses collagen which makes it less elastic. The skin starts sagging and causes bags under eyes. You should use an eye cream with hyaluronic acid to lock the moisture and boost the collagen production.

Uneven skin tone

– Loss of collagen or too much sun exposure can cause this skin problem. You can use cream with peptides, which will increase elasticity, and soy or licorice extract will lighten the dark spots.

For combination skin

– Dry cheeks, oily forehead, nose and chin forms an oily T-zone which is generally caused by hormones and genetics. Use a lightweight moisturizer with dimethicone, a hydrating skin conditioner, and soothing green tea to treat this skin problem.

Now you have a fair idea about how to care for your skin but we would recommend you to consult your dermatologist before picking out any cream, serum, moisturizer etc. to stay on the safe side. Eat healthy food and drink plenty of water to revive your skin from inside and your skin will look young and refreshed.
