1. Use a tightening and hydrating mask
For tighter, glowing skin try a clay mask such as the Alya Skin Pink Clay Mask. The nourishing, tightening and hydrating ingredients will plump your skin to make it appear fresher and more youthful with the appearance of fine lines such as wrinkles reduced.
2. Avoid products with parabens and SLS
Over 75% of skincare products available to buy contain parabens and SLS, so be careful! Parabens and SLS have been linked to the irritation of skin conditions such as dermatitis and rosacea and are very harsh chemicals that can mess with the reproduction of skin cells, causing you to appear 'dull' and age faster than usual.
3. Do not smoke
Smoking reduces circulation and the oxygen level in your blood. This decreased oxygen causes wrinkles, particularly around the mouth. Aside from damaging your respiratory system smoking also creates air pollution around you which quickly gets absorbed into your skin!
4. Removing make-up before bed
Makeup can cause extensive damage to your skin during the night. When you sleep, your skin renews itself so when you leave makeup on, you are preventing that from happening. When you leave your makeup on for too long, your skin struggles to breathe and fatigue signs appear soon enough.
The Alya Skin Foaming Micellar Cleanser is perfect to use before bed to give your skin a deep cleanser and remove your make up from the day.
5. Wear sunscreen
The biggest thing you can do to prevent wrinkles and early signs of aging is to wear sunscreen! Sunscreen or SPF is something you need to add into your routine when you're in your twenties to prevent your skin from ageing, instead of trying to correct your ageing later on in life. This very basic and simple anti-aging tip is the most important!
6. Exfoliate, but not every day!
Exfoliating can help to unclog pores and improve overall cellular turnover. This allows the skin to operate at its best and soak up all the other products you're applying to your face, resulting in smoother, softer, and healthier-looking skin.
Exfoliate your skin every 2-3 days with the Alya Skin Pomegranate Exfoliator, the added antioxidants found in the pomegranate seeds will leave your skin with a youthful glow.
7. Don't wash your face with body soap
Most body soaps will be too harsh for the skin on your face. To avoid stripping your skin of its natural oils and moisture, make sure you use a cleanser that is specifically designed for your face! We recommend the Alya Skin Foaming Micellar Cleanser as it not only cleans deep into the pores of your face, this Foaming Micellar Cleanser also removes any hidden make up that is still on the surface of your skin.
8. Drink enough water!!
Staying hydrated is extremely important in preventing your skin from ageing! If you don't drink enough water and begin to get dehydrated, your body is going to pull water from your tissues, and that in return will make your eyes look tired, face looks sunken in and your skin will feel a lot drying than usual. Therefor as it won't be as elastic and you will look older. Drinking enough water and keeping your skin hydrated will give your face a more youthful glow and bounce.
