Your Anti-Aging Guide: Prevent Wrinkles in 4 Easy Steps

If looking and feeling your best matters to you, then you strive to practice good habits that promote overall well-being, such as getting adequate sleep, exercising, and eating a balanced diet. These measures have benefits that extend to physical and mental health and also have an impact on your performance and appearance.

 

Another dynamic that can affect the way you look is the process of aging. Yes, it is true that as early as your 20s, your face may start to show signs of aging in the form of fine lines. Exposure to harmful environmental conditions like sunlight and pollution take a toll on the skin. Genetics can also play a part in the aging process, but steps can be taken to minimize the impact. Besides practicing good habits as mentioned above, when it comes to skincare, prevention is the key. 

Implementing a Skincare Regimen for a Wrinkle-Free Appearance

Preventing wrinkles doesn't have to be a complicated process, but it does require effort. Below we will show you four easy steps to achieving healthy, younger-looking skin and the products that can help you prevent wrinkles before they start!

Cleanse

First, you want to start with a thorough cleansing routine. It's essential to remove dirt and oil from your face. Employing a cleansing routine twice a day will ensure there is no buildup making your skin look dull. HIMistry offers a range of cleansers containing beneficial ingredients such as salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and lactic acid.  These acids and other antioxidants help gently remove dead skin, exfoliate, and promote cell turnover, all while leaving you smelling great. The Black Tea & Lactic Cleanser is specially formulated to rejuvenate your skin, making it clean and smooth.

Making it a part of your routine:

  1. Start by putting a small amount of the cleanser in your palm.
  2. Rub your hands together to get a good lather going.
  3. Gently apply the cleanser to your face in upward circular motions.
  4. Rinse with cool water.

Exfoliate

After cleansing, you should use a product just for exfoliating the skin about 1 – 2 times a week. The HIMistry collection includes exfoliants that contain alpha-hydroxy acids, glycolic acid, and black tea. These ingredients effectively penetrate deep into the skin and gently removes the outer layer to reveal youthful-looking skin. You can exfoliate using the Black Tea Walnut & Glycolic Scrub or the Alpha Hydroxy Clearing Pads.

Making it a part of your routine:

  1. After you have cleaned and rinsed your face, you can apply either the scrub or use the pads to exfoliate.
  2. If you are using the clearing pads, you can take one of the pads and glide it across your face and neck area.
  3. If you are using the scrub, put a small amount of the product on your fingertips, and gently massage into your face. After two to three minutes of cleansing, rinse your face with cool water.

Tone

After you are done cleansing (or cleansing and exfoliating), the next step is to use a toner to remove any remaining traces of dirt and dead skin cells. There are two toners in the HIMistry skincare line that are packed with elements to revitalize the skin, such as green tea, lactic acid, and glycolic acid. These ingredients remove impurities from the skin, exfoliate, and help to combat wrinkles and fine lines. Try either the Green Tea & Lactic Toner or the Triple Tea Aftershave Toner.

Making it a part of your routine:

  1. After you have cleaned and rinsed (or cleaned and exfoliated) your face, saturate a cotton pad with the toner.
  2. Dab the toner on your face and neck.

Moisturize

The final step in your skincare regimen is to moisturize. Moisturizing helps to hydrate and plump the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. HIMistry's Hyaluronic & Vitamin C Serum is an anti-aging skin treatment that brightens and firms. Made with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, this formula helps your skin to retain moisture and boosts collagen production.

Making it a part of your routine:

  1. After you have completed the steps above, it is time to moisturize. Put some moisturizer on your fingertips.
  2. Gently apply the cleanser to your neck and face in upward circular motions.

Although wrinkles may be a consequence of aging, that doesn't mean you're helpless to do anything about it. Just like going to the gym or eating healthy, having a good skincare routine is a complement to your overall strategy for maintaining optimal well-being.
