As we age, our skin starts to show early signs of ageing such as fine lines, dark spots, and wrinkles. Several skincare products are specially designed to combat these signs of ageing. However, given the busy schedule, moms often have, taking care of their skin may not be a top priority. Nevertheless, with a few simple anti-ageing skincare tips for mothers, even they can keep their skin looking youthful and radiant at any age. This Mother's Day, let's take a look at 7 such anti-ageing tips for women that can help our busy mothers.
7 Best Anti-ageing Skincare Tips for Mothers of Every Age
Here are the 7 best anti-ageing skincare tips for mothers that you should share with your dearest mom this Mother's Day:
Apply Sunscreen Daily
Sun damage is a major cause of premature ageing and can lead to the early appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and other skin concerns. So, one of the most important anti-ageing tips for not just moms or women, but everyone in general, is to apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, even if it's cloudy or raining outside. Use one of the PONDS Serum Boost Sunscreens that are available in various formulations for various skin types.
Keep Skin Hydrated
As we age, our skin loses moisture and becomes drier, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. So, drink plenty of water and use a nourishing moisturiser such as the PONDS Age Miracle Youthful Glow Day Cream with patented Retinol-C, vitamin B3 and powerful bio-actives. This cream will moisturise your skin while combating signs of ageing.
Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives that can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. A milder form of Retinoid available over-the-counter is Retinol, which is suitable for most skin types. Hence, every best skincare for moms should include retinol-based products such as the PONDS Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Night Cream with Retinol or the PONDS Youthful Glow Age Miracle Whip Cream with Retinol. However, please note that Retinol is not a pregnancy-safe ingredient and should not be used by pregnant women.
Exfoliate your skin to get rid of dead skin cells and improve the skin texture. However, don't overdo it. Use a gentle chemical exfoliant once or twice a week to remove the layer of dead skin cells from your face.
Choose The Right Cleanser & Moisturiser
Choose a moisturiser and cleanser that will help to remove dirt and impurities from your face without stripping the skin of its natural oils while keeping it hydrated and preventing dryness. Some such products are the PONDS Bright Beauty Spot-less Glow Face Wash with Vitamin B3 and the PONDS Bright Beauty Serum Cream which gives you a spotless glow and SPF 15.
Eat A Healthy Diet
What goes inside your body is equally important if not more than what goes on top of it. So, while you apply the right moisturiser and anti-ageing creams, it's equally important to maintain a healthy, nourishing diet while avoiding sugary and processed food that can lead to skin ageing.
Get Enough Sleep & Avoid Stress
Sleep is one of the most important factors not only responsible for the overall health and well-being of any human but also for healthy skin. Aim to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night to keep your skin looking its best. Another factor that can have a negative impact on the skin is stress. This can lead to acne, wrinkles, and other skin issues. Try practising relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, yoga, or meditation to tackle stress.
Get your moms to follow these simple anti-ageing tips to keep their skin looking youthful and radiant. Remember, protection, hydration, exfoliation, the right products, a healthy diet, stress-free life and a good night's sleep are all you need for healthy glowing skin.
