Shares

If your medicine cabinet is a graveyard full of empty marketing promises, fear not for help is on the way. . . .

. . . . It's time to clean out the bathroom cabinet and throw away all of the anti-aging skincare products that promised results but didn't work.

Here are 10 life hacks for anti-aging products and strategies that actually deliver :

  • Stop With Straws
  • Be Liberal
  • ​Super Size It
  • ​Think Vampire
  • ​Wash Your Face Religiously
  • ​Get Lots of Sleep
  • ​Sleep Correctly
  • ​Skip the Sweets
  • ​Help Your Product Help You
  • Opt for A One-Two Punch

Stop With Straws

If you drink through a straw often, the best thing to do for your skin is stop. The frequent sucking motion creates wrinkles around your mouth that no anti wrinkle product will be able to erase. Smoking does the same, so quit if you can.

Be Liberal

Anti aging products that you dab on your face and around your eyes are great for other parts of your body as well, so use them liberally. Remember to apply these magical serums to your neck, chest and hands as well. Make sure no part of you betrays your age.

Super Size It

Anti-aging skin care products are often needed to reduce the natural effects of the sun, especially around your eyes. Protect your eyesight and your delicate eye skin from the sun by opting for oversize sunglasses.

You can channel such fashionable spirits as Jackie-O and Audrey Hepburn while keeping your skin younger-looking.

Speaking of skin and sunlight, remember that sun exposure on any of your skin can lead to premature again. Wear sunscreen on beach trips or during outdoor activities on all of your exposed skin.

Consider tinted windows for you car as well - The New England Journal of Medicine has reported that in one year, you will be exposed to the sun for 200 hours simply from the sunlight in your car while commuting to work.

Wash Your Face Religiously

Even though you may be well past acne worries, you should still wash your face every night before bed. During the day, air pollution is picked up by your pores and can cause you to age prematurely if it isn't washed away.

Studies have shown that skin in polluted areas has 20% more pigment spots and wrinkles than the skin of those living in less polluted areas.

Get Lots of Sleep

Anti wrinkle products can work wonders, but they don't compare to your body's natural ability to rejuvenate itself through sleep.

In a first of it's kind study, the skin of those who got adequate sleep recovered from dryness 30% faster than those who slept poorly . . . . 

. . . . Better sleepers also had lower body mass indexes and better skin elasticity.

Sleep Correctly

Although it sounds a little crazy, the way you sleep can also impact your skin. To stay wrinkle-free, opt for a smooth satin pillowcase and try sleeping on your back.

Sleeping on your side causes wrinkles on the cheeks and chin while sleeping on your stomach can furrow your brow.

Skip the Sweets

On average, a woman should try to consume less than 25 grams of sugar per day. Exceeding this amount causes your skin cells to age more quickly . . . .

. . . . so cut out sodas and sugary snacks in favor of water and healthy food choices. Your skin will thank you.

Help Your Product Help You

Anti-aging skincare products work best when you treat them well. Make sure you store them out of direct sunlight and keep them cool.

Products that have been exposed to high temperatures or direct sunlight don't work as well.

Opt for A One-Two Punch

Certain lifestyle changes and home remedies work wonder on the skin, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't use over-the-counter anti-aging skincare products.

Some of these products have been well-researched and tested, so they actually do work quite well. You can give their perofmrance a boost, however, by using them in combination with other skincare enhancing tips and tricks.

Combine your favorite home remedies with store bought anti-aging skincare products to ramp up your skincare to a whole new level.
