After turning 30 a few years ago, I became very interested in anti-aging tips and products. My grandmother’s are only one year apart and when they were in their 70s, I began to notice how different their aging speeds were. My maternal grandmother looks years older than my paternal grandmother although she was only months older.
Here are a few things that I’ve learned about how to slow down the aging process to maintain a youthful complexion and look for longer:
One – Drink Lots of Water
Water is so important, and only becomes more important as your body begins to age. Keeping your skin hydrated does wonders to reduce the fine lines and wrinkles and to keep your skin’s elasticity stronger for a longer period of time.
Two – Be Careful of What You Consume
Eating healthy foods not only helps to maintain a smaller waist line, it also helps your body and skin to slow the aging process. Eating highly processed foods can take a toll not only on your physical health but on your complexion and skin as well. Also, avoid smoking at all costs! My grandmother who looked a decade older than she was was an avid smoker and was evidence of the toll that smoking takes on your body.
Three – Anti-Aging Products
Find good anti-aging products to keep your skin and complexion youthful. I recently was offered the VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Mask to try out and have grown to love them! One of my problem areas is around my eyes as that is the place that first had noticeable fine lines and wrinkles. The most noticeable part of that area of my face, however, was puffiness and dark circles.
So, I was thrilled when I was asked to try this product. I noticed a difference right away and the results only increased the more consistently I used them. The only downside is that they are a tad difficult to get used to wearing overnight, but after a couple uses, it didn’t bother me so bad.
This photo was taken right before I used these patches for the first time:
And this is a photo taken just a few days ago after using them three times a week for two weeks:
There is such an improvement on the puffiness and dark circles with just two weeks of use. Not only are the dark circles noticeably lessened in the after photo, but I’m also only wearing tinted moisturizer as opposed to concealer and full coverage foundation in the first photo. Overall, I really love this product and plan to add it to my regular weekly facial care routine from now on.
