Whoever coined the phrase “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” must not have anticipated the evolution of skincare. With a variety of rejuvenating eye creams, moisturizing sunscreen lotions, hydrating primers, and good ol’ H2O, there are a number of ways to treat your skin with age. Vivid Health & Beauty Skincare offers essential skin care tips for graceful aging, so you can feel comfortable in your skin during every phase of life.
Hydrate, Then Hydrate Some More!
You might be guilty of declaring “I should drink more water,” and we’re here to emphasize that you should! An adequate water intake keeps your brain and body functioning properly, and your skin buoyant.
If you’re experiencing dull or dry skin, it’s likely you’re not getting enough water. To optimize your skin’s appearance at any age, you should try to consume a half-ounce to an ounce per pound you weigh in water every day. So, carry around that trusty reusable bottle to serve as a reminder of your hydration goals.
Did You Know? The body’s ability to signal that it doesn’t have enough fluids, most often expressed through thirst, weakens over time. This natural aging process makes it especially important to be mindful of how much we’re hydrating each day.
Don’t Forget to Don the SPF
As we approach the summer months, you should prep your skin for harsher UV rays. Too much sun exposure is harmful to your skin and can expedite its maturing process.
More than its cosmetic impact, though, too much UV exposure can cause intense sunburn and increase your risk of skin cancer. Keep yourself safe and your skin supple by incorporating a moisturizing sunscreen into your skincare routine. Not only will a little SPF of 15 or higher protect your skin this summer, but it’ll also boost your skin’s hydration and radiance.
Did You Know? Though an emphasis on sunscreen is definitely needed in the summertime, it’s an essential skin care tip for graceful aging all year round. It’s good practice to include SPF in your daily routine to combat the strongest UV rays.
When life gets stressful, our skin may start to show it. Always factor in some “me” time to destress when possible. Partaking in self-care isn’t just good for your skin—it’s good for your soul. Who doesn’t feel more at ease after some much-needed pampering? Treat yourself to a trip to Vivid Health & Beauty skincare spa or an assortment of our earth-friendly, nourishing products. Your skin will thank you!
Did You Know? The way your body responds to stress informs its impact on your skin. Conditions such as psoriasis, rosacea, and eczema can flare up during stressful times, making it even more important to have healthy, stress-relieving hobbies to resort to.
