Skin becomes more delicate as we get older. Of course, most of us want to protect our appearance as long as possible, and as well we should. There are many natural and inexpensive anti-aging products and tricks that help ward off the inevitable. The Internet is full of things you can do at home without taking expensive and costly trips to the department store or the dermatologist’s office. Here are five of them to get you started.

 

Beauty Tip for All Ages: Use Daily Moisturizer with SPF

Almost nothing damages skin faster than the sun. Dermatologists have been asking people for years to wear daily moisturizer with SPF protection. You don’t need to go crazy, so an SPF of 15 or 20 is plenty. Make sure that it guards against UVA and UVB rays (most do). If you’re going to be out in the sun for prolonged periods, increase your protection by wearing a sunhat. Daily protection is a must, but if you’re sitting outside on a summer day for an entire afternoon, your daily routine alone isn’t going to cut it.

 
Start Using Eye Cream and Night Cream

You’re never too young for under eye cream, especially if you want to prevent the growth of crow’s feet. That skin under the eyes is very delicate, so dab it in at night gently with your index finger. Never rub the skin around the eyes or it will get irritated; also rubbing can cause wrinkles. Dabbing the cream in with the edge of your ring finger can give you younger-looking skin for years to come. Even if you don’t wear a lot of makeup, get into the habit of washing your face with a cleanser and slathering on the night cream before bedtime. If you already see tiny wrinkles around your face (join the club, you’re in good company if that’s the case), grab a brand that has plenty of retinol which has been proven to reduce fine lines. When you’re in a hurry, disposable facial cloths reduce your water use and prep the skin for your beauty cream at the end of a long day.

 
Stay Hydrated

Your skin is your body’s largest organ. As such, it can get dehydrated along with the rest of you. Drink plenty of water, especially on hot days and after workouts. Sweating is important because it’s one of the body’s key methods of detoxing. So, if you love a good sweat in the steam room, or if you’ve just kicked some butt in your barre class, make sure to drink at least 8 to 16 ounces of water to keep your skin looking and feeling resilient. Bring a reusable water bottle with you everywhere so you can fill up and grab a drink no matter where you are.

 
Get Plenty of Sleep

Here’s another beauty tip for everyone: they call it beauty sleep for a reason. When we sleep, the body recharges itself, moving lactic acid and other toxins from the muscles and into the renal system, and produces all the feel-good hormones like endorphins. Without sleep, our eyes get puffy, and our skin doesn’t get the nourishment it needs. More and more research is teaching us that lack of sleep causes overeating and could lead to heart disease. So because your skin is no different than any other organ in the body, it needs sleep for optimal health.

 
Experiment and Have Fun

Genetics play a huge role in how we age. So, pay attention to the men and women in your family and notice what’s happening with them. Are grandma’s eyes a little baggy? Start using eyelift strips.

to see if they perk yours up a little. Also, makeup is your friend. If you notice dark circles under your eyes, your only way of combating them and increasing the appearance of younger skin, barring expensive surgery, is by using a touch of concealer. Check out online videos from beauty experts and bloggers on anti-aging tricks you can use at home. There’s no crime in using some short cuts to get the appearance that you want.

Aging is something that no one can avoid. However, you don’t have to go down without a fight. Products you can find online and at the regular drug store go a long way in the anti-aging battle.
