It’s a dilemma.
You want to look younger, but you don’t want to spend a lot of time working on it.
But what if you could take ten years off your complexion in ten minutes or less every night?
Check out the anti-aging skincare routine below.
It has only two steps to success.
Light up your life to turn back time
Inflammation makes your skin age faster.
A painless way to reduce inflammation is to use low-level light therapy.
Science shows that at-home red light therapy actually works.
If you treat your skin with a red light therapy device, you can smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
Some users apply red light to their scalp to help with hair growth.
Plus, infrared and red light diminishes joint pain and promotes healing.
It can help you recover from an acne outbreak. Don’t tell me that you’re too old to worry about pimples because you’re not. Unfortunately, they keep coming back on occasion.
Low-level light therapy is affordable and straightforward to use. It doesn’t have side effects that require recovery time like microdermabrasion or laser treatments.
All you need to do is wash your face, then use the device for a few minutes each day.
That means pressing a button to turn it on, then holding it against your skin. It may feel a little warm, but it never gets hot.
You should never end up with reddened skin or irritation.
Once the recommended time has elapsed, apply serum and moisturizer as usual.
Keep in mind it may take a few weeks to see a big difference.
You might want to take photos before you begin treatment. Then you can clearly see the progress you’ve made.
Who doesn’t love a good masquerade?
After you’ve done a light therapy treatment, put on a mask.
Seriously, you’ve got to try a Japanese sheet mask.
A quick search online will show you how many beauty experts are recommending them.
Korean masks are also popular.
There’s a face mask for every concern you can think of, including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and dry skin.
It doesn’t matter if you have frown lines, blackheads, or age spots. The masks can make these issues less noticeable.
Moreover, they plump the skin full of moisture to the point where you could skip your night cream.
Then, you’ll wake up looking refreshed and rejuvenated in the morning.
Serum, eye cream, and moisturizer, oh my
Between light therapy and Japanese face masks, you’ve met your ten-minute quota for the day.
If you’d like to go the extra mile, look into daytime serums, eye creams, and moisturizers.
They firm up your skin and perk up your complexion, too.
It’s stunning to see what a difference a good eye cream can make. It minimizes dark circles and crow’s feet in a way that no ordinary moisturizer can.
Please don’t forget the sunscreen, either.
In fact, one of the very best things you can do to keep your skin from aging is to protect it from the sun.
That doesn’t mean you can’t be bronzed.
Just get your bronze from a bottle instead of the sun.
Sunless tanning is safe and painless. You can do it at home or visit a salon.
Just like a real tan, you’ll need to renew it every few days to maintain your color. But it won’t cause wrinkles or age spots down the road.
Other simple anti-aging tricks
What else can you do to maintain a young complexion?
You’re doing light therapy, and you’re taking good care of your skin. But maybe you’re not satisfied.
I’ve found that getting a good night’s sleep, drinking enough water, and skipping sugary, fried foods makes me look and feel younger.
Laughing and doing things I enjoy, especially outdoors, gives me a sparkle that I can’t get from any products.
Pick up a new hobby – one that makes you feel young.
It doesn’t matter if you’re any good at it. What matters is that you enjoy it.
If you’re more satisfied with your life, it won’t matter so much if the smiling face in the mirror looks more mature.
