Even though being stuck at home for the past few months has gotten you on top of your skincare game, there’s always room for improvement. After all, not only do you want to look presentable but beautiful, too, when you’re finally allowed to see people again.
With wrinkles, crow’s feet, dark spots, and dry skin slowly creeping up on your skin, exterior care isn’t enough. Here are five tips on how to kick saggy skin, fine lines, and sun spots to the curb:
1. Skip the sugar.
With your Instagram feed full of banana bread and Dalgona coffee, it’s easy to reach for a sugary snack to help curb a craving. But before you reach for a cookie, know that sugar does some serious damage to the elastin and collagen in your skin. Without collagen and elastin keeping your skin lifted and supple, the end results are saggy, wrinkly skin.
2. Get some exercise.
You don’t need to hit the gym to be able to exercise, but the idea here is to get you moving to break a sweat. When you get your heart pumping, it works better at circulating oxygen and nutrients and getting it to places where it needs to be–including your skin. Sweating also does its fair share of rejuvenating your skin by flushing out toxins.
3. Don’t skip the sunscreen.
Even though most people have been spending time indoors, that doesn’t mean you’re completely absolved from slathering on some SPF. Whether you’re working from home and stationed near a window or doing weekly grocery runs to stock up on essentials, save your skin the grief and apply at least SPF 30. While windows do offer some sort of protection from ultraviolet rays (the kind that can speed up aging on your skin), they don’t completely block it all out. Better to err on the safe side and keep dark spots at bay with a little skin protection.
4. Get enough beauty sleep.
Here’s the ugly truth: Not getting enough sleep can cause some less-than-pretty side effects, including red and swollen eyes, a pale complexion, dark circles under the eyes, and increased wrinkles and fine lines. Without traffic or a morning commute, you can dedicate what would have been travel time to catching up on a few more zzz’s before you really start your day. Your skin will thank you in the end.
5. Take care of yourself from the inside out with a beauty supplement for ageless skin.
With Myra’s latest offering, Myra Ultimate, you can easily and conveniently fight the signs of aging. It’s packed with Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant known for its potent anti-aging benefits. It acts as a natural sunscreen, protecting the body from harmful UV rays and their damaging effects, like dark spots and skin sagging. Astaxanthin also boosts your overall skin health by promoting the production of collagen in the skin for more supple, bouncy skin and fights oxidative stress and inflammation, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion.
But that’s not all Myra Ultimate has up its sleeve. Aside from Astaxanthin, it’s also rich in lycopene and vitamin E, two efficient antioxidants that promote beautiful, firm, youthful skin. You can take Myra Ultimate orally once or twice nightly, and at Php20 per capsule, it’s a worthy investment for your skin.
