When it comes to remembering landmarks there are some we look back at fondly—our first 5 figure salary, that big promotion and so on while among the not so popular ones, our first grey hair or wrinkle  will definitely feature on this list. With too much beauty coming at us every day, it’s hard to brush off a “sign of ageing” as they call it. But the good news is that how your skin looks is totally in your hands. Whether you’re above, at or below thirty here is an anti-ageing regime and a few skin tightening tips that you can practice to keep your skin looking young…
 

Swear by green tea

Swear by green tea

One of green tea’s many benefits is that it keeps your skin young and fresh—thanks to its high antioxidant content it fights free radicals thereby reducing the breakdown of collagen and slowing down premature ageing. The result? Skin that’s firm, looks younger and stays wrinkle free for longer.

What can help: Drinking green tea thrice a day for optimum effects.

 

Get sound sleep

Get sound sleep

If you’ve seen the signs of ageing, count the number of hours you’re getting sleep. A lack of sleep results in your body releasing cortisol, the stress hormone, which has the power to break down collagen which manifests itself as saggy skin. Moreover, the way you sleep is also known to affect the way your skin looks because repeated pressure over certain areas around the face can cause deep wrinkles and creases.

What can help: The ideal sleeping position is to sleep on your back without your skin touching the pillow in anyway.

 

Invest in a skin firming cream

Choc-a-bloc schedules, unhealthy diets and the extreme weather can damage the skin’s DNA causing premature ageing.

Don’t we all want our skin to magically transform at night while we’re asleep? Since this is the time when our skin’s resting, it’s better to give it an additional boost with a skin firming cream. Away from the environmental aggressors and burning sun, it can work wonders to curb premature ageing.

Pick the right face wash

Pick the right face wash

While creams help fight signs of ageing, washing your face with the right product ensures that your skin is free of dirt and exfoliated well enough. After all, excess build-up of dead cells and impurities can add years to your appearance. This is when you need to spend time picking a face wash that cleanses gently and effectively.

What can help: The Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Firming Facial Foam. Well, ageing skin loves collagen and this face wash has just that. We like how we feel squeaky clean after this one without the unwanted tightness. All you have is skin that instantly looks plump and supple.

 

Say yes to a skin serum

Say yes to a skin serum

Skin serums are highly underrated and anyone who has good skin will tell you how effective they are. Serums are lightweight, quick to work, ready your skin for the heavier products and makeup that is to follow and are non-oily and hassle free.

What can help: The Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Firming Serum. After regular use we could feel the area around the jaw and the neck looking tighter and more hydrated. We also love it as a makeup base as foundation goes on a lot smoother and stays longer once we have this on.

 

Watch the eyes

Watch the eyes

Age causes the muscles around our eyes to weaken thereby leading to eye bags and puffy eyes. Moreover, lack of sleep, sleeping late or not sleeping well enough can also cause tired looking skin around your peepers. As is the case with anything else, prevention is better than cure. Start using an eye cream twice a day to delay the signs of ageing but ensure that you follow this routine through every day.

What can help: The Lakmé Youth Infinity Skin Firming Eye Cream that has Insta-Collagen Boosters™ that magically refresh tired eyes. With luminizing pearls that brighten skin tone and ensure that the area around your eyes looks young and fresh, you’ll wake up with eye that look well rested, always!

Now that you have the rule book to anti-ageing, follow these tips, see your face metamorphose and embrace younger looking skin soon!
