Looking at my pictures when I was younger made me wish to have the skin I had before. Comparing it from now, I can say that there was indeed a huge change on my skin.
Although aging isn’t a bad thing and birthdays are great, it is important to have healthy looking skin no matter what age you are. Your face will go through these changes but there are also ways to prevent premature aging.
But what really happens to your skin in your 20s, 30s and 40s?
Read on to know how to keep your skin healthy.
In Your 20s
Many will experience acne, even if it wasn’t an issue as a teenager. Pimples will appear on the lower face and along the jawline in particular.
To treat this, use any product with Niacinamide, like Myra Vitawhite Facial Wash, to even out any red blotches and add radiance to the skin. Myra Vitawhite facial wash also has Vitamin E beads, which protect and nourish the skin for a healthy glow, and Biowhite Complex, derived from plant extracts that gently whiten the skin in as early as 1 week.
Taking care of your skin at this stage will determine how much damage your skin will have in your 30s and 40s. Products with Vitamin E are great to keep your skin supple and youthful.
In Your 30s
You’ll notice uneven skin tone with broken blood vessels and sun spots more, as well as fine lines and crow’s feet. This is the decade when your lifestyle habits from the past start to show on your face.
Hyperpigmentation, like melasma or brown patches that often occur on the forehead, cheeks, and chin, is a big concern for women in their thirties. It’s usually a result of too much sun exposure but it can also be caused by a change in hormones.
Make sure you wear sunscreen or use products with Vitamin E to protect your skin from sun’s harmful rays.
In Your 40s
At this age, your skin starts to get drier, which may mean more prominent lines and wrinkles.
Counter this with a high-quality moisturizer to help improve hydration. Anything with peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid will gradually correct dark spots and brighten the skin as well.
Take care of your skin with Vitamin E products to boost collagen production and prevent wrinkles.
Make your skin healthy and beautiful by taking care not only just on the outside but also from the inside. And that is how Myra makes wonders for us - alagang Holistic ng Myra.
It's been a while and It's October already.
Seems like yesterday as they say, but time really flies by so fast.
In case you want to know what I've been up too lately, here's a little update about me.
♥ CL's a big girl now. I'm blessed to have a very smart girl like her. She's been doing well in her class and she's still driving me crazy with her daily antics.
♥ I've done a revamp with all my Instagram accounts - @niaandbella will be solely dedicated to my online shop, all pictures and other stuff were deleted especially the lettering challenges I joined. I created @aine.garcia on the other hand, which is now associated with this blog. There you will find snapshots, my letterings and anything in between my interests.
♥ I'm in the middle of fabric flower production. I've made a few pieces already and about to make more. Also, now I will single-handedly take care of all the sales and marketing and I think it's about time to make headpieces for kids and grown ups too. I'll be opening my online shop anytime soon, as Christmas is just around the corner.
♥ I'm back to KDramas once again! I've had sleepless but wonderful nights because of them. I'm done with Pinocchio, She Was Pretty, Doctors, Uncontrollably Fond, and about to finish W - Two Worlds and Cinderella and Four Knights. But since it's taking up my time, I'm not going to watch new once yet and focus on Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo instead. This way, I can properly manage my time and still work with my blog and fabric flowers every day.
♥ I'm back to joining giveaways again. I soooo missed receiving prizes! *wink*
That's it for now. I hope you had a nice September like I do and may we have a blessed October ahead of us.
