Aging is a natural process, not all of us like it, especially when it comes to our skin. Whether or not you care for your skin, it will age to some degree. The more you care for your skin, the slower it will age.
One thing a lot of people ask, is why does the skin age? The skin naturally ages due to various factors; most commonly, aging is due to ethnicity, genetics, and sun exposure. Typical signs of aging skin include:

It is easiest to slow the symptoms with the right skincare and a healthy lifestyle. I’ve always had issues with my skin for many years, eczema has been a real issue so skincare is something I’m very invested in! So here’s my tips to keep your skin healthy and glowing!
Properly cleanse your skin
Cleansing your skin is something you should do from a young age, but it is more effective and crucial in your later years. The cleaner the skin, the healthier it is, you can use an Oil, milk, or foam-based cleanser, these are the best options. Double cleansing will ensure adequately cleansed skin. But ensure that you find one that matches and helps your skin!
Wear SPF all the time
Wearing a moisturiser with SPF included will protect your skin from sun damage as well as air pollutants. Ensure your SPF is at least 50 to protect you from both UVA and UVB rays. SPF can be worn alone or under makeup, but SPF should be the most first and most crucial step in your skincare routine. Finding a moisturiser with SPF will ensure every time you moisturise will make the process simpler for you!
Increase your vitamin C intake
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin to add to your diet as well as your skincare routine. Using vitamin C infused skincare will promote collagen production and fight wrinkles. Adding vitamin C to your diet will also help your skin, for example Vitamin C rich foods include citrus fruits, peppers, berries, and leafy greens. You could also try to take Vitamin C vitamins each day!
Reduce sun exposure
Limiting your skin’s exposure to the sun is crucial to slow the skin’s aging process. Sun damage is one of the leading causes of fast ageing skin. Not only can the sun cause aging skin, but it can also increase the risk of skin cancer, when exposed to the sun, always ensure to wear SPF50 within your moisturiser!
Moisturise more often
Hydrated skin prevents drying and ageing, so by using Moisturise day and night rich creams to keep the skin healthy, nourished, and glowing. If you need to, use creams throughout the day to ensure your skin is well hydrated. The best moisturisers to use are those that include hyaluronic acid. This ingredient alleviates dry skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

Every so often, your skin will benefit from a professional skin care treatment. Non-invasive treatments cause the least damage and are highly effective.
