Very basic Anti-aging Skin Care Tips that I use…for elegant ladies and skincare beginners.
I’ve always believed that the foundation to an elegant appearance is clear good skin. Of course, hair and make up and the rest of it
are important too, nonetheless. However, when you find something that works for your skin, it makes it much
easier to have an elegant appearance!
There are tonnes written out there about skin care but I’m writing this article for the woman who is finding herself
without much knowledge i.e. ground zero. Don’t worry, it’s nothing to be ashamed of. I myself didn’t have anyone
to teach me. I didn’t have a sister and my mother belonged to the soap and water generation.
Since the advancement of aesthetics – research has proven that there are more to good skin than soap and water. I myself
have read a fair share, tried and tested some theories. Here are the most basic anti-aging skin care tips.
Most Basic Anti aging Skin Care Tips
1. What You Eat
2. Skin Care Routine
3. Vitamins and supplements
What You Eat
It is true. You are what you eat. If I could summarize, it would be, “Eat fresh“. I’m not a nutritionist, but please
eat according to your body type and lifestyle. There are many books you can read up on this.
Skin Care Routine
This is what I want to focus on.
You’ll need some basic products. Some women swear by 12 steps and use a tonne of products, but this system should be tried and tested
on your own as everybody is different.
Step 1: Use a cleanser
Some call it facial wash. There are many different types. If you are new, try a mild one. Read it’s label. It should
say ‘mild’ or ‘gentle’ or ‘for sensitive skin’. Usually, these are the ones you wash off with water afterwards.
Step 2: Use a toner
If you are purchasing a toner for the first time, buy the same brand as your cleanser. And get some cotton wool. Dab some
toner on it and swipe every area of your face gently.
Step 3: Use a serum
Serums come in day and night form. Of course, some can be used for both day and night. They are basically concentrated beauty creams that used to only be exclusive to
Here are some of my favorites!
Step 4: facial moisturizer
There are also day and night moisturizers, but I use one for all, just to keep things simple.
Note: Night time Routine and Exfoliating
If you wear make up, you’ve got to get a make up remover
to ensure all traces of make up are removed.
You should also get an exfoliating lotion or a brush/sponge to ensure you get rid of dead skin cells once a week.

Vitamins and Supplements
At the very least, take one multivitamin. I don’t think what we eat today is sufficient for us in getting our nutrients,
no matter how hard we try. The food we get is not what it used to be!
