Fact: Anti-aging treatments don’t always have to be expensive or time consuming.
There are plenty of very simple skin treatments (most can be done at home) that will give you that instant gratification we all desire for younger, healthier looking skin.
And, many of these home treatments are not expensive at all!
Anti-aging treatments can help slow down and repair normal aging. They can also improve the appearance of our complexion.
One of the reasons our complexion looks tired as we age is due to lack of moisture. Mature skin is usually thinner and drier and is not able to hold moisture like it once did.
But before you can effectively moisturize, you need to exfoliate deeply to remove dead skin cells.
You see our skin ability to naturally slough off dead cells begins to slow down as we age. This can inhibit optimum absorption of your favorite post-treatments like vitamin infused masks and serums.
Not to mention create a dull, lifeless looking complexion.
You can’t begin an anti-aging treatment without first cleaning your skin and removing all traces of makeup.
Start with your favorite cleanser...........Just make sure it cleans well without leaving a residue or without over-stripping.
If you're following-up with an exfoliating treatment you don't want to wind up with irritated skin.
Our favorite cleanser is Cetaphil. Even the Walgreen's generic version works well. It's so gentle you can clean your face without water.
There are basically two ways to exfoliate:
Many skincare professionals agree that using both exfoliating methods (either at the same session or alternating monthly) is best for optimum results.
Short on time and cash?
A very simple mechanical exfoliant can be made with your favorite cleanser (or water) and a little bit of sugar or Arm and Hammer baking soda.
Mix the two until the two until you get a gritty paste like consistency and massage all over your face and neck. Then rinse well.
You will see an immediate improvement after this simple step. You skin will look more polished, smoother, and feel softer.
You can also use a cleansing brush or a microdermabrasion cloth with the baking soda or alone if your skin is sensitive.
