MY ANTI-AGING RECIPE AND HOW I USE THEM – ZIGIHOW.COM.NG
I will keep saying this, Anti-aging skincare ingredients are very important and necessary for the skin.
You don’t really need to clock 45-50 before you start using Anti aging ingredients, I started using anti-aging Products at the age of 20.
Too much usage of skin whitening and lightening Products, may break down the skin collagen level, making the skin loose it’s elasticity or firmness, although some skincare products Contains collagen, Vitamin A and Vitamin C to firm the skin, but we don’t really know what percentage they are, or if they are really in the cream as they said. So we have to be sure and careful of what we use on our skin.
To enjoy the full benefits of anti-aging ingredients, you have to use them directly to your skin on appropriate measure.
In this very article I will share my anti-aging recipe and how I use it.
Products I Use
I have been using this combo on my Face for a very long time, since then my skin firmness smoothness and elasticity is out of this world.
Method of application
Step 1: I wash my face using St Ives moisturizing Cleanser. You can use any cleanser of your choice, but ensure it’s a moisturizing cleanser and not harsh on the skin.
Step 2: I pat my face dry with a clean towel, (not stone dry, I keep my face alittle bit moist).
Step 3: I apply a pea size(little size) of tretinion one on my forehead,
another pea size on my both cheeks, and another pea size on my jaws, then I gently rub my skin to spread them around my face using a circular motion applying method.
I use Retin a brand, of tretinion but you can use any Tretinion brand of your choice, there are so many Tretinion brands out there. Tretinion are applied on a small size, just like the size of a pea or a corn seed never apply too much on your face, to avoid skin burning. You can read how to properly apply tretinion.
I have been using Retin a gel 0.1% for 3 years now, so my skin has adjusted to it, I can use it every night.🙂🙂I have never suffered from acne and pimples, can’t remember when last I saw that on my face.
Then after i apply my tretinion (Retin a), i wait for 1-2 minutes to dry, and it drys faster, because it’s a gel, but you can still use the tretinion cream if you like. I chose the gel because I have an oily skin, gels a best recommended with individuals with oily skin, for better penetration.
Then I apply my hyaluronic acid serum, this is a moisturizing serum, it’s a lubricant, that keeps your skin well moisturized and hydrated, filling the tiny gap holes on your skin, (large pores), promotes collagen and skin firmness, giving you a shining, glowing skin.
Hyaluronic acid is found mostly in your eyes and your joints, like I said it serves as a lubricant, keeping my skin well moisturized and firm. The main key to achieving a glowing and shining skin, is adequately giving your skin enough water, hyaluronic serum holds 100 times water into the skin, because it draws water from the atmosphere to the skin, leaving your skin well Hyderated.
After the application of tretinion and hyaluronic acid serum, I go to bed.
And when I wake up my skin keeps glowing and shining, this really gives me all the happiness in the world 🙂🙂.
Then in the morning I use my Vitamin C serum and apply my sunscreen before going out.
I have been using this recipe for a very long time now, and I will never intend to stop using it, this anti-aging recipe has really made my skin flawless, smooth like that of a baby’s skin, shining like a star and glowing like a rising sun.
I have previously written an article why it’s really important to use anti-aging ingredients, you don’t really have to clock 40-50 before using anti-aging products, I started using them when I was 20, and I’m pretty sure that this will go along way to keeping my skin smooth, firm and ageless.
Note: Don’t use Tretinion and vitamin C serum together, as you can read from the article I never used them together, rather I used them separately. Using tretinion and Vitamin C serum together may turn out to be too harsh on the skin, and may negatively affect your skin, it’s advised you use them separately just like the way I did in this very article. You can read skincare ingredients you should never use together.
Anti-aging ingredients are really important to the skin, as we age our skin starts to loose it’s collagen production which is responsible for skin’s firmness and elasticity, you have to help your skin by using natural anti-aging ingredients to help keep your skin well hydrated, smooth and firm.
Always ensure to put on your sunscreen while stepping out, never use tretinion during the day, always use tretinion at night only, Hyaluronic acid serum can be used during the day, it will keep your skin well moisturized and hydrated all day.
