I often get asked what to do #𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿30 to treat your skin so that it will remain in good condition while growing older.
.
Part from specific conditions as acneprone skin or excema which ask purposed treatment, the main goal is to keep your skin hydrated, moistured and balanced.
.
It’s really important if you want beautiful skin to eat healthy! This doesn’t mean you can’t drink or you can’t treat yourself a McFlurry! It means paying attention to the food you eat on a daily basis and drink enough water!
.
There’s a lot to say about food, but I’ll keep it short. If there is one thing I really care for is that I eat enough food with anti-oxidants and drink water. So a standard ingredient of my breakfast are blueberries which are loaded with antioxidants!

Back to our skin!
H𝘺𝘥𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦 with for instance Hyaluronic Acid and M𝘰𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘦 or lock in with products using an oil, a regular #moisturizer is ok.
.
Products containing caffeine help a lo t in D𝘦𝘱𝘶𝘧𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘨. Our head can be a little puffed when our lymfatic system isn’t functioning optimal, a gua sha massage can help but also the ingredient caffeine. Caffeine helps to get rid of puffines in general.
.
Don’t go to hard on actives – when it isn’t necessary – and accentuate on S𝘰𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨. Do think about peptides and ceramides as ingredients to 𝘱𝘭𝘶𝘮𝘱 that skin!
.
“A𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘹𝘪𝘥𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘴 are the superheroes in this scenario. They both reverse and prevent free radical damage (this includes things like premature aging, inflammation, and hyperpigmentation). So basically, if you don’t have any A𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘹𝘪𝘥𝘢𝘯𝘵 skincare products in your beauty routine, your skin is at the mercy of free radicals.” (#byrdie) Most known antioxidants are Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Resveratrol, Vitamin E, Retinol (Vitamin A), Coenzyme Q10, Polyphenols… I basically stick to vitamin C and Niacinamide.
.
One important thing to do is nourish those lashes! They reduce significantly when you get older! So in the evening before you go to bed, use a lash product to give them some nourishment!
