As you age, your skin loses its original elasticity and lucidity. Discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles begin to manifest, causing your skin to appear dull and lifeless. In addition, your skin is constantly bombarded by the artificial chemicals you consume from the foods you eat, environmental pollutants and stress. There are several different remedies available to achieve healthy, youthful looking skin.

Step 1

Use a good facial cleanser every morning to rejuvenate your skin. High-quality facial cleansers include those offered by Neutrogena and Oil of Olay. Always read the directions that accompany these cleansers before using them.

Use a high-quality exfoliating cream to help rejuvenate your skin. These potent skin creams remove the surface layer of dead skin cells and gradually replace them with new cells when used as instructed. There are a number of exfoliating creams sold at the drugstore. Ask the pharmacist to assist you in choosing the best exfoliating cream for your skin type.

Use moisturizing lotion on your skin after exfoliating it. An all-natural moisturizer containing shea butter or aloe vera is preferable. These lotions penetrate deep into your skin, preventing and treating fine lines and wrinkles while keeping your skin moist. When buying moisturizing lotions, make sure they don’t contain any fragrances, because these can cause allergic reactions, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Take a multivitamin every day to help internally rejuvenate your skin. Vitamins are rich in antioxidants that can help keep your skin smooth and supple while protecting it from the effects of environmental pollutants.

Rejuvenate your skin by applying sunblock every day. Sunscreen helps protect your skin from the sun’s powerful ultraviolet rays. Sunblock is available in the form of creams, lotions and sprays. Always buy sunblock with an SPF of 15 or above. Apply it an hour before going outside and reapply it every four hours or when you start to sweat a lot, such as after exercising.
