Take proper care of your skin to avoid premature aging and damage.
Maybe you can't look like you're in your 20s forever, but there are plenty of things you can do to prevent premature signs of aging and preserve skin's youthful appearance for longer. Many of the things that cause skin to look older are damaging factors. When you take these out of the equation, with proper skincare and avoidance of harmful irritants, your skin is guaranteed to stay looking younger for longer. If you'd like to start "turning back the clock," so to speak, try some of these tips to get started.
One of the quickest ways to brighten dull skin and renew your look is with regular exfoliation. Using a good scrub once a week (or twice a week if you have very oily skin) will remove the dead, lifeless skin cells on the top layer of your skin and reveal the newer, fresher cells beneath. When dead skin is trapped on the surface, you're more prone to breakouts, flakiness, and dullness. Buildup of dead cells can also make fine lines and wrinkles appear deeper--s...Read More »

Your skin doesn't have to suffer after a late night out.
With three young children, I don't always manage to get the sleep my body needs. I might be up with the baby, dealing with my older daughter's night terrors, or simply catching up on last season's "Downton Abbey." It could be a dinner with my husband or a night out with the girls. It doesn't really matter what has kept me up past my bedtime. All that matters is the next day, I don't want everyone else to look at my face and know I was up way too late.
Remove your makeup.
You're up late. You're ready for bed. You don't want to waste your time on your night time skin care regimen or even take the time to take your makeup off. Big mistake. Your skin can't recover with caked on makeup. Take the time to remove your makeup after a late night.
Hydration is always important after a late night. It can help rehydrate your skin and prepare you for the day ahead. It may also help eliminate puffiness around the eyes. So grab a full water bottle and make sure to drink at least half...Read More »

Use the Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Moisturizer as part of your anti-aging skin care regimen.
If you're determined to maintain your youthful look for years to come, make sure you're using the right beauty products and being consistent with your skincare regimen. You can prevent premature wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots from developing by keeping your skin in good shape season after season. Your lifestyle and diet also play a role in how your skin looks and feels, so you'll also need to pay attention to what you eat - and get enough sleep! Compromising in any of these areas can amplify the effects of aging and even lead to troubled skin.
Here are eight anti-aging skincare habits you need to adopt right away:
#1: Use the right cleanser. Not all cleansers are alike and this is one beauty investment that demands a little research. A good anti-aging cleanser will have ingredients like vitamin C and oxygen boosters which increase cell turnover. If you're not sure what type of cleanser to use, ask your dermatologist for a recommendation.
#2: Use a good moisturizer da...Read More »
