None of us want to age. Some men though, unfortunately, look older than their age because unlike women, they are not doing anything to slow down the appearance of aging or doing any anti-aging skin regimen to take care of their skin.
Hey guys! The unenergized face that looks back at you in the mirror; unnecessary wrinkles and dull eyes, rests solely on you. Fortunately, there is hope. There are a few simple steps you can take weekly that can help your skin look more energized and firmer in no time.
Whether you’re in your 30s, 40s, or beyond, it’s likely you have the same goal as most men in Raleigh — you want to look good for as long as possible. But, if you want to keep your skin looking refreshed and young, you’ll need to take your anti-aging regimen up a few notches.
Read on for our top five anti-aging tips for men.
1. Wear Sunscreen For Anti-Aging
For years, everyone from dermatologists to beauty editors has been stressing the importance of SPF.
But here’s the thing: We may be wrong. SPF is not enough to protect you from sun damage. Sunscreens block UVA and UVB rays, but those rays only account for seven percent of solar energy. New research finds that infrared radiation, which makes up 54 percent of solar energy, also causes aging — and it might even be worse than UV rays. While there is no product that can totally guard you from infrared radiation, studies show that antioxidants in skin care may help.
2. Drink Lots Of Water
Yeah, yeah — the old drink eight 8 ounce glasses of water per day deal. But, that’s actually not that straight forward. The quantity is actually based on your body weight and other factors, so it’s most likely more than eight glasses. In any event, the more water you drink, the more likely it is that your skin will be healthy, and hydrated!
3. Eat A Healthy Diet
Bet you knew this one was going to make the top five tips for anti-aging skincare — sleep, exercise and healthy foods. But antioxidants in fruits, veggies, and other superfoods can be useful for battling wrinkles, decreasing puffy dark circles, and promoting cellular turnover. So, in addition to not feeling sluggish all day from eating foods high in sugars, eating well promotes energy and great skincare.
4. Invest In An Anti-Aging Cream For Men
When we sleep at night our body is at rest; allowing it time to repair itself. This is the best time to use an anti-aging cream so that it works with your body’s natural nightly restoring process to help slow down aging and plump up skin cells.
5. Reduce Your Stress Levels
When we’re stressed, we tend to eat foods that are comforting like sugary foods and foods high in carbohydrates. And the more stressed you are, the more likely it is you’ll not getting a proper amount of sleep. No matter how busy your schedule might be, make sure you’re taking time to spend on the activities you love.
Endorphins are natural pain and stress fighters. When you exercise, laugh; doing this you love, you induce more endorphins!
