If you are anything like me, you will probably loathe the idea of spending more than an hour pampering your skin. Not that there is anything wrong with that. If I have that much time to spare, I’d also spend those hours keeping my skin beautiful. But since I don’t, I have to look for quick and easy solutions that do not require a lot of my time and effort.
If you have 15 minutes of time to spare in the morning, you can try the following routine in keeping your skin firm, resilient and beautiful:
1. After washing your face, pat it dry and immediately apply your moisturizer. Place a pea-sized amount of cream on your palm. Use your index finger and dot a bit of the product on your forehead, under your eyes, the bridge of your nose, your cheeks and your chin.
2. Use your lightest fingers to spread the cream all over your face. Use a circular and outward motion only. Do not run your fingers up and down your skin as this can tug the dermis downwards and can trigger the loss of resilience.
3. Now find the acupressure points of your face. Use your two index fingers and knead those pressure points. This will help release tension and improve the distribution of fluid and blood around this area.
Acupressure massage was popularized by Chinese medical practitioners. This method has shown remarkable results in reducing wrinkles and fine lines on the face. It also works in improving complexion fast. Massage the pressure points of your face for the remaining time allotted for this routine.
Follow this simple routine every morning and you can see major effects to the health of your skin. Moreover, you also need a potent anti aging moisturizer. There are products that penetrate skin layers deeper.
Look for a product that has been incorporated with the ingredients CynergyTK, Phytessence Wakame and Nano Lipobelle HEQ10. CynergyTK is an ingredient that has been carefully extracted from the wool of sheep. This is actually one of the best sources of natural keratin. Keratin is the same functional protein used by the integumentary system for collagen production. This will help maintain strong structure of the dermis.
Phytessence Wakame is a type of Japanese sea kelp. This sea kelp can help get rid of harmful enzymes. These enzymes tend to damage and break down hyaluronic acid, the acid that supplies moisture to collagen proteins. Keeping collagen hydrated and nourished is imperative in order to prolong its life.
