Better than Yesterday Skin: The result of making the most of the months, days or hours you have before a big event to enhance your skin’s appearance.
Whether you’re looking to refresh your complexion, minimize the appearance of aging, reverse brown spots, fade blemishes or calm red skin, it is possible to look better today than you did yesterday.
Here are three suggestions to make the most of the time you have:
Two to four months: Develop or tweak your daily skincare regimen to target your unique skin concerns. Whether you’re concerned about wrinkles, dullness, brown spots, sensitivity or blemishes, intelligent daily skincare adds up over time to make a major impact on the appearance of your skin. By adding a micro-exfoliating roller into your daily routine, you can accelerate the visible benefits of regimens that address the signs of aging or sun damage.
Twenty-four days: If you haven’t already, incorporate macro-exfoliation for five minutes once a week to sweep away dead skin cells and allow a smoother complexion to shine through. Unlike an in-office microdermabrasion treatment, macro-exfoliation can be done at home and requires no downtime to heal. Even one use will go a long way to improving the look of your skin.
Twenty-four hours: Yes, in a pinch, there are things you can do to improve the look of your skin in just one day. Use a mineral peptide product to perfect your complexion and diffuse any facial redness, and an eye cream with optical filters to brighten the eye area. Boost your complexion from the neck down by applying sunless tanner at least four hours before your event. A subtle faux glow is a known “red-carpet secret” for masking imperfections such as redness, bruising and varicose veins, disguising cellulite and helping you look slimmer and more toned. These are quick, but effective, fixes. Post-event, start on a daily skincare routine so that you’re not scrambling before your next event.
The choices you make today will affect the way you look and feel tomorrow, next year and well into the future. With daily skincare and healthy lifestyle habits, you can be putting your best face forward every day … and literally improve with age.
