By Remmy Diagbare

These five simple steps will keep your complexion soft, supple, and wrinkle free for decades to come.

1 Cleanser… Starting with clean skin makes the rest of your skin-care arsenal more effective. Try a gentle cleanser that leaves protective oils and moisture behind.

2 Anti-aging serum.. These potent formulas pack concentrated power in small doses. The best contain antioxidants (look for vitamins C and E and green tea) believed to bolster the skin’s collagen production,.

3 Moisturizer.. When skin cells become     dehydrated, they shrivel up, making skin look older, dull in tone and texture, and even wrinkled.) Look for a lightweight formula that has an SPF of at least 25 and contains petrolatum or glycerin, the gold standards for moisture retention. It is a misconception for those with oily skin, to stay off moisturizers. Skin no matter how oily, still needs to be fed. The advice for those with this type  of skin is to use oil free moisturizers.

4 Sunscreen.. The sun can seriously speed up the aging process, causing damage, hyperpigmentation, and cell breakdown. “Your best defence is to be thorough with your sun screen,” Even if you’ve applied a moisturizer or foundation with SPF, be sure to use a sunscreen if you’ll be out for more than an hour or so.

5 Sleep.. Getting plenty of shut-eye is as good for your complexion as it is for your body. When medical researchers at Cornell University deprived 11 women of sleep for just one night, it was enough to deplete their skin’s defenses. To make the most of your z’s, try to get seven to eight hours of sleep a night, and use a humidifier to keep your skin moist and help your nighttime treatment sink into your pores.
