Top 5 Tips for Age-defying Skin Care in 2014

Some of the top tips for age-defying skin care may already be a part of your daily routine.  But for those you trying to develop or improve your face care regime in the new year, leading spas offer sound advice on how to keep skin youthful and glowing in 2014.

Cleanse. When choosing a new cleanser look for care with antioxidant strength of acai and goji berry that includes vitamin C for visibly glowing skin.  Hyaluronic acid is also a nourishing and naturally occurring ingredient used in the finest face care products.  It repairs on a cellular level to strengthen connective tissue while building collagen and elastin.

Exfoliate.  Removing dead epidermal layers ensures a boost to cell regeneration that is noticeably rejuvenating.  Be sure your exfoliant is loading with moisturizers like jojoba oil that balances sebum production beautifully, so skin is luminous but not greasy.   Exfoliate no more than twice weekly so as not to over dry the skin.

Moisturize.  This seems a no brainer right?  But many moisturizers on the market can irritate the skin with too many chemical additives, fragrance and too few nutrients.  A moisturizer is best when it offers abundant vitamins and minerals that retain hydration.  Pure argan or neroli oils, cocoa and shea butters offer optimal hydration.  They are the most ancient anti-aging moisturizers that are still highly sought after today because they deliver results like no other skincare products can.

Detoxify.  clay masks are one the best ways to reach deep into the pores for an unrivaled purifying experience.   Clay specific to your skin type acts as a sponge, absorbing all the impurities from the dermis for a dramatically clearer complexion.  It soaks up excess sebum in oily skin to bring about a youthful appearance free of unsightly sheen.

This earthy mud expels contaminants and dead skin cells without stripping critical moisture, especially when your choice aesthetician customizes a mineral rich facial during a professional treatment.  Applying a clay mask on a weekly basis can detoxify dermal layers to restore ageless vitality.

Check your diet.  Add some omegas to your diet, as a grilled salmon feast, for their fatty acid content.  Juicing is also a premium way to get your leafy greens on the go.  Leafy greens provide the vitamin A and iron necessary to protect and regulate blood circulation.  These age-defying foods are essential for enhancing the health of skin.  For example: a tasty blend of kale, ginger and apple offers an antioxidant blast to fend off free radicals, microbes that are destructive on contact.

Spas such as Joanna Vargas Skincare Sanctuary laud green juice for its innumerable anti-aging benefits.  So start 2014 off on an ageless path with these easy face care tips for clean clear and glowing skin.
