Oh, how I miss those days when I could grab the nearest moisturiser and slap it on my radiant face before rushing off to school in the mornings. Years have gone by and my once flawless skin is just not the same anymore. Now I have to be more selective when it comes to the products I use on my skin as well as how I live my life.

Let’s be honest, we are not getting any younger and there is no better time to level up our skin care than now. A good skin care regimen combined with good lifestyle habits are essential for beautiful and youthful looking skin. Today I would like to share with you 3 tips for youthful looking skin.

Update Your Routine

NIVEA has recently launched their most advanced anti-age range ever and I had the divine honour to put it to the test. The range promises to tackle signs of ageing by visibly reducing deep wrinkles, helping to firm skinand help reduce dryness. I struggle fiercely with excessive dryness, so I’m always on the lookout for products that will leave me feeling hydrated.

Results: After using the range for 1 week, I could already feel the difference. My face feels hydrated, healthy, and it looks amazing. The formulation stimulates skin’s own production of key ingredients (Hyaluron, Collagen and Elastin) and therefore the results will get better over time. My favorite product in this range is the Bi-phase Nourishing Oil Elixir.This Oil is undoubtedly the holy grail for people that struggle with dryness, it instantly moisturises your skin and your skin will remain that way throughout the day. The dynamic range also consists of a Day Cream, Night Cream, and an Anti-Spot Treatment Serum. The Anti-spot treatment helps reduce the appearance of any existing age spots when used consistently for over four weeks.

Limit Sun Exposure

My mother used to insist we wear sunscreen every day when I was growing up. Yep, my siblings and I were those kids that walked around with white faces in the playground. That’s probably the most valuable skin care lesson that my mother taught me at a young age and it stuck. I apply sunscreen every single day. Not only does sunscreen slow down the skin ageing process, but it also reduces the chances of skin cancer and pigmentation. It’s helpful if your moisturiser has a sun protection factor in it, like The NIVEA Cellular Filler Elasticity Day Cream SPF 15+. But I still use more sunscreen over and above that.

Balanced Lifestyle

There’s no point in investing in high-end beauty products if you don’t maintain a balanced lifestyle. To attain healthy and youthful skin there are certain options that you need to incorporate into your lifestyle. Such as drinking lots of water, a balanced diet and getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night. It’s as simple as that.

Maintaining healthy and youthful looking skin is not easy, but it is possible. It takes a lot of patience and dedication. Once you commit to holistically taking better care of your yourself, everything will fall into place. The small changes can make a big difference. How do you keep your skin looking youthful?
