There is nothing wrong with aging skin. In fact, you should embrace and enjoy every step of the journey. Still, the most common beauty search for many women is for the fountain of youth. Even if you are not looking to get Botox or resort to other extreme measures, chances are you are still trying to age as slowly as possible. This is because pre-mature aging is something that you will definitely not want.
In your 30s or 40s? To get that killer, wrinkle-less skin, you must have probably tested every wrinkle-fighting cream. But if you are still not satisfied, you have other options. And they are completely natural in their formulations. Many skin care products rich in botanical ingredients help to keep skin looking youthful and attractive.
It is finally time for you to get serious about skin care and to establish a dedicated routine.
The Natural Process Of Skin Aging
Epidermis- The topmost layer on our skin starts to get thinner as we grow old. Your skin around the eyebrows and around your eyes droops because of gravity. Your usual facial movement lines and fine lines like laugh lines and crow's feet become more prominent and develop faster as you get older.
Early Signs Of Skin Aging
You are already aware that fine lines, wrinkles, dry, and dehydrated skin are the earliest signs of aging. These fine lines or crow's feet can appear as early as in our 20s or 30s. Fine lines caused by facial expressions and frown lines start to deepen in the late 30s. In your 40s, your skin starts to loosen and sag more. Dark spots or blemishes also start appearing on our skin as we grow old.
Things You Can Do To Keep Your Skin Looking Young
You might not know what it is, but collagen is the key when it comes to keeping your skin youthful and free from wrinkles and fine lines.
Collagen is a protein produced by our cells that helps in binding the skin together, giving it firmness and elasticity. When you are young, your skin stays plump and smooth because it constantly regenerates itself. But as you age, collagen production slows - and existing collagen can get damaged due to sun exposure and bad skin habits.
Follow A Healthy Skin Care Routine:
For youthfully glowing skin, it is important to make sure that you moisturize, tone, and cleanse your skin regularly. Always use anti-aging creams, sunscreen, or sun-block creams which help in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Products which have natural oils like apricot are beneficial in reducing wrinkles. Use a good quality moisturizer or an under-eye gel/cream and apply it under your eyes before sleeping to get rid of dark circles, eye patches, and fine lines.
Protect Your Skin From The Sun:
It is a well-known fact that exposure to the sun can damage your skin, leading to premature signs of aging and wrinkles. According to skin care experts, regular sunscreen use has the ability to slow down the signs of aging skin and prevent the visible formation of fine lines and wrinkles. To protect your skin from the sun's damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays, it is vital to apply an SPF of between 30 and 50 every day, even if it is overcast. UV rays can still penetrate clouds, so remember that you cannot skip on sunscreen just because it is not sunny. For extra protection, wear a wide brim hat, light-colored clothes that will reflect the sun, and sunglasses with UV protection.

Slathering the sunscreen on the face, arms, legs, and other exposed areas of the body help in averting the cumulative effect of sun exposure and minimizing the signs of photoaging.
Inculcate Vitamin C In Your Skin Care Routine:
Vitamin C is crucial to the formation of collagen. Skincare products that contain vitamin C are also thought to encourage collagen repair which in turn helps to control premature signs of aging. Vitamin C also keeps the skin free from dark spots and blemishes.

A Must-Have For Anti-Aging: Retinoids, which are derived from vitamin, are one of the most studied anti-aging ingredients. Sometimes referred to as retinol, retinoids have the ability to increase collagen production, which helps plumps up the skin and maintain its suppleness. Retinoids also encourage skin regeneration and can promote the creation of new blood vessels, which may help improve the skin's overall appearance and texture. There are many types of retinoids, each with slightly different degrees of potency. Some are available in creams and gels that you can buy over the counter, while others are available by prescription only. Dermatologists recommend starting with a small amount to test your skin's tolerance to the product and using it every other day to avoid peeling. Talk to your dermatologist to find out which option is right for your skin.
Don't Skip Your Moisturizer:
A moisturizer acts like a drink of water for your face. Moisturizers help to nourish and hydrate the skin. This is especially important as you get older and your skin becomes drier and dehydrated, which makes it more prone to wrinkles and other signs of aging.
