There are countless ways that people today are trying to look younger. From topical products, facial masks and peels, to Injections, infusions, and even facelifts. All are effective in some way. But how far is too far when it comes to looking younger?

 

Looking younger

The debate has raged on for what seems like forever. Some say looking younger should start and end naturally with using good products, eating well and exercising. Others believe that a regular visit to the dermatologist or plastic surgeon is the perfect way to keep wrinkles way. The truth is that looking younger is directly relational to how you feel. And while it may be enough for some to feel young, others need that feeling to be reflected in their appearance.

 

For those who want to look younger without breaking the bank. Here are a few ways you can look younger on a budget:

 

1)  Cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate:  Spend time on your skin every day. Daily cleansing and moisturizing cannot be skipped. Choose a moisturizer that’s age appropriate. What’s good for your skin in your 20’s will not be enough in your 40’s. On a weekly basis, it’s important to exfoliate. Exfoliation helps the cell turnover process which slows with age. Skin that’s regularly exfoliated will look healthy and radiant.

 

2)  Include a Serum:  Daily moisturizer isn’t always enough. Most skin needs a boost of active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, peptides, or collagen to help stimulate the production of Collagen and Elastin. Ask your esthetician to suggest one that’s appropriate for your age and skin.

 

3)  Don’t Skip the Eye Cream: It’s so important to keep the skin around the eyes moisturized. A good eye cream or gel will help fill fine lines and wrinkles, reduce puffiness and dark circles and help your eyes to look more open and awake.

 

4)  Eat well and exercise:  You have heard it countless times before: you are what you eat. It’s really true. Eat well and drink plenty of water and your skin will have a healthy natural glow. Collagen supplements or liquid collagen are another way to help the body produce more collagen and promote healthy skin.

 

How far you go in your effort to look younger is entirely up to you. How you look and feel can directly impact your confidence so only you can decide how much is too much. Consider trying these lower budget options first before you dive into the deep end. Growing old is a privilege but you still want to look like yourself while getting there. Over doing the injections may have you looking like someone you are not. Your doctor can help you find that balance.
