Like many people, when you get older and look at your face, you can see signs of aging. Facial lines, wrinkles, and crepe-like skin around the eyes is not uncommon. Luckily, if these changes bother you, there are actions you can take and products you can use on a regular basis to return a youthful glow to your face. Here are two things to try.
Enjoy More Water
One of the simplest actions you can take if you think your face is starting to look old is to drink much more water than you're currently drinking. Many people are dehydrated and don't realize it; in fact, according to one study, some 75% of Americans could be dehydrated.
How can that affect your aging skin? Every cell in your body contains water, including the skin cells in your face. When you're not consuming enough water, the cells in your body are unable to function as well as they could with adequate water levels. Replication to make new skin cells may slow down. This will show up on your face in the form of dryness, shadows, fine lines and other problems. However, when you've got properly hydrated skin, your overall look is better because all of the skin cells are working properly and replicating to make healthy new cells.
Generally, drinking when you're thirsty is a good idea. However, you might want to cut down on other types of drinks in order to be certain you are getting enough water.
Use Topical Serums to Eliminate Saggy Areas
For days at work or a night out for a social event, you want your skin to look great. You may be drinking more water but you might need a quick fix that will tighten your skin and help alleviate some of the age-related sagginess that you're observing. Luckily, there are serums you can use to smooth and lift your skin.
For instance, you can use topical serums for something you can apply yourself before you head out. With just a bit of cream, you may observe tightening that takes a few years off your face. These serums can be especially important for the area around the eyes that can have a crepe-like appearance as you get older.
These are just a couple of ideas for helping your facial skin to look younger. Talk with skin products retailers and a dermatologist to determine what other skincare tips would be best for your skin.
