There are lots of wonderful things about getting older. As we age, we become more competent and skilled at our jobs, better at maintaining relationships, and more in tune with what our body wants and needs. It seems the older we get, the more comfortable we are in our own skin.
Unfortunately, our skin doesn’t always seem to be on the same page as our skilled and competent selves. Unfortunately, it seems that the more comfortable we get in our skin, the less comfortable we can get with our skin.
Fortunately Vitality26 is here for you. Now, instead of focusing on fine lines, wrinkles, or dark spots, you can keep focusing on how awesome you are at being you with these six simple steps to stay ahead of aging:
1. SKIP THE STRAW
The only thing Vitality26 cares about more than the environment is your skin. A simple and effective way to save your face and save the environment is to stop using a straw. Skipping the straw could mean skipping fine lines around your mouth. Plus, many plastic straws end up in the ocean, which is not good for our marine friends. (Have we mentioned that all of our products are cruelty free?)
2. SAY NO TO SMOKING
It’s safe to say that smoking isn’t the best habit for your body - your insides or your outsides. Just like sucking on a straw, sucking on a cigarette could create fine lines around your mouth. Smoking also increases the chances of premature aging of the skin, wrinkles, stained teeth, and even psoriasis.
Use beads or chemical peels to daily slough off dead skin and reveal your beautiful and smooth complexion underneath. But be careful not to overdo it! Too much exfoliation can aggravate your skin.
4. WASH YOUR FACE BEFORE BED
It’s a simple step that’s easy to forget, but make it a habit and you won’t regret it. In fact, make washing your face before bed a habit and your skin will thank you for it! Clean skin regenerates while you sleep and allows you to wake with happy, open pores.
5. VISIT YOUR DERMATOLOGIST
Not sure what to say when you get there? We’ve got a list for that. 10 Questions to Ask Your Dermatologist
We recommend that you apply lotion within three minutes of getting out of the shower. This will lock in the moisture that your skin craves. Might we recommend Vitality26’s Day & Night Extra Hydrating Cream? The cream’s formula is lightweight and non-greasy, so it won’t clog pores. The organic ingredients exfoliate your skin while stimulating natural collagen production. Which means a more even complexion and greater elasticity.
The effects of aging are well known - fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots - but not inevitable. The key is to start early. No matter how old you are, we recommend that you start anti-aging treatment now. What have you got to lose?
