Renew your skin—and your outlook on life! If your skin's looking dull, fatigued, or not bouncing back the way it used to, follow these tips to get a more youthful, radiant complexion.
The damaging effects of the sun's rays don't disappear in the colder months. Using a high SPF every day even in the winter is the most important thing you can do to prevent premature aging.
Eat fish three times per week.
Oily fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel are high in omega 3 fats, which help plump up skin and maintain elasticity. Don't like fish? You can get your omega 3s from tofu, walnuts, flaxseeds, soybeans, or fish oil supplements.
Stay in the know.
After 10 years of research, L'Oréal scientists unlock the code of skin's youth by discovering a specific set of genes* that are responsible for skin's natural power of regeneration. Patented GenActiv Technology™ increases skin's power of regeneration so it regains the qualities of young skin. In just seven days, see smoother, youthfully luminous, more rested looking skin emerge.
Use satin pillowcases.
The sleep lines you get when your face is pressed into a cotton pillowcase can turn into wrinkles. Make the switch to satin or, better yet, sleep on your back.
Exercise helps keep skin young-looking by stimulating circulation, releasing toxins, and reducing stress. Aim for at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise on most days.
Avoid the heat.
Don't sit directly in front of the heater or fireplace for long periods of time. Research shows that excessive exposure to high temperatures can destroy collagen and elastic fibers in the skin, leading to premature wrinkling.
