Let’s face it – there’s no avoiding the effects of aging. The appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and even loose skin are all part of the natural aging process.
Much to our chagrin, there’s little we can do to conceal aging skin and the tell-tale signs are worn right across our faces. But the good news is, there are a number of natural anti-aging remedies to combat the visible signs of aging.
Why does our skin lose its elasticity?
A combination of genetics and external factors, such as our environment and lifestyle choices play a major role in how our skin ages. As we grow older, it’s natural for our skin to lose the soft, supple appearance it once had.
Intrinsic aging is genetically determined and entirely beyond our control. While extrinsic aging refers to premature signs of aging that are brought on by external factors, such as the damage from UV rays or smoking.
But what causes the skin to sag? With age, the loss of collagen causes our skin to lose its elasticity. Our faces also lose the facial fat that’s responsible for a fuller, more youthful appearance. Long-term exposure to UV light breaks down collagen, which can also fast-track the aging process.
Best skin tightening treatments
We all know that one person who started slathering on all sorts of anti-aging creams and serums when the rest of us still had a tough time removing all our makeup before bed.
Luckily, there are plenty of simple and effective natural anti-aging remedies you can incorporate into your routine. Whatever your skin situation, it’s never too late to start showering your skin with love!
Protect your skin from the sun
We already know that too much sun exposure isn’t great for your skin. In fact, the sun’s UV light can actually speed up the skin’s aging process. Yikes!
Rain or shine, it’s incredibly important to incorporate daily sun protection into your skincare routine. Even when it seems cloudy out, the UV light can still damage your skin.
Research indicates that those who are already affected by sun damage can benefit from regular use of a broad spectrum sunscreen. Invest in a broad spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Besides protecting your skin from the harmful effects of UV light, a good sunscreen can deliver powerful antioxidants and other skin-restoring ingredients to your skin.
Make a face mask with your coffee grounds
Aside from giving you a serious pick-me-up in the morning, there are many perks to incorporating coffee grounds into your skincare routine. Finally – those coffee grounds from your morning brew don’t have to go to waste!
Loaded with powerful antioxidants, applying coffee grounds topically to your skin can help to prevent signs of aging and to protect it from free radical damage. Other benefits of using a DIY coffee mask? Removing dead skin cells and tightening the skin.
To make your own coffee mask, here’s what you need to do: Quit tossing out your coffee grounds! In a bowl, combine a spoonful of spent coffee grounds and an egg white. Make sure to only use coffee that’s finely ground. Gently massage this mixture onto the surface of your skin and let it sit for a couple minutes until it dries. Use warm water to wash the mask off your face and pat your face dry with a towel.
When it comes to picking out the best skin tightening treatments, and anti-aging creams or serums, the options are completely overwhelming. With the promise of some serious lifting action and firmer looking skin plastered across every single product, how do you choose?
Instead of looking at what a product promises to do, get familiar with the ingredients you should look out for. The best skin tightening treatments contain:
- Hyaluronic acid or ceramides
Show your skin some love with a facial massage every now and then!
Massaging your face regularly helps to relieve tension, increase circulation, and stimulate the lymphatic system. The key here is to employ a couple different motions into your technique for better stimulation. With an upward and circular motion, start off in the center of your face and work your way out. Also, if you rotate between tapping and slight pinching, this aids the absorption of skincare products.
For better results, invest in a tool to give your face a deeper massage. This is a great way to improve circulation and to promote the production of collagen and elastin for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Abels 3D Firmer reproduces the complex kneading action you’d experience from professional facial and body spa therapy to lift, and restore firmness to your skin.
Treat yourself to a luxurious facial steaming session in the comfort of your own home. A quick steam can be incredibly soothing and it’s one of the best skin tightening treatments to enhance the overall appearance of your skin.
Facial steaming helps to deep cleanse, hydrate, and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which is essential for youthful looking skin. Warm steam helps to purify your skin by opening up your pores, making it easier for you to remove the buildup of dirt and oil.
Compared to other natural anti-aging remedies, you’ll notice a huge difference with your skin almost immediately after facial steaming. For the best results, investing in a facial steamer is the most effective way to perform this procedure in the comfort of your own home. With the Skin Revival™ Pro Facial Steamer, it takes as little as 8 minutes to purify and boost the radiance of your complexion.
