Forking out a big amount from your skincare budget for anti-aging creams and sunscreen lotions is fair way to achieve a fairer, younger looking skin. However, it shouldn’t stop there. Limiting yourself to this way also means limiting the results you can get.
We’ve listed down 5 steps you can easily follow for a maximized fairer and younger looking skin results!
A good and healthy diet doesn’t only take care of our weight. It is also responsible for our skin’s health.
While most of us know that harmful sun rays and habitual substances intake like alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs are the main culprits of skin damage, dermatologists worldwide know that AGEs or Advanced Glycation End products are responsible for triggering skin damage. This refers to foods that become glycated as a result of exposure to sugars, which is common in our modern diet.
Eat healthy food, and keep yourself from eating junk for healthier skin!
Sugar is sweet and nice, but it doesn’t always provide sweet and nice long-term results for both our weight and skin condition. Sugary foods prematurely age the skin. In worse cases, it can even result to dullness, discoloration and wrinkles!
Skip the sweeteners, pass on the processed food (they contain lots of sugar!), pick freshly squeezed juice than powdered ones, and lay low from dairy products. You’ll be surprised at how this will improve your skin’s condition in the long run.
Removing your makeup not only allows you to feel fresh and clean, it also has long-term benefits on the skin. Leaving makeup residues on your face could trigger more wrinkle formations, dullness and dryness. It may even block your pores, hence preventing skincare products from being absorbed effectively into your skin tissues, including topical sunscreens.
For centuries, topical sunscreens have been widely known to be a great skin rescuer. In fact, it is the most important step in anti-aging skincare regimes.
They are available in the market in various forms – lotions, sprays, gels, sticks and balms. You can choose whichever fits your preference.
While topical sunscreens are great skin shields, they are not enough to protect against all of the sun’s harmful radiation. This brings us to the 5th step!
A daily intake of whitening and sun protectant oral supplements is the best way to achieving fairer and younger looking skin. It whitens and protects the skin from within.
When choosing an oral supplement, it pays to choose the one that is backed by significant number of years of research, as they are effective, safe and tested.
Oral supplements infused with white tomatoes or colourless carotenoids and fern extracts have been studied by many researchers to provide excellent support in the protection from UVA and UVB rays. They also prevent the body from producing dark melanin and stimulate production of glutathione (antioxidants) in the body, which helps you achieve fairer and younger looking skin.
