It’s tough for most men to age gracefully. Unless you’re a Hollywood silver fox or a TikTok star with a team of plastic surgeons, you probably shake your fist at a new wrinkle every morning.
But regular guys deserve a chance to defy Father Time too.
That’s why we’ve put together a few clever strategies and lifestyle changes – all of them recommended by dermatologists – that can help you turn back the clock on your skin.
What Causes Skin Aging?
There are a lot of factors that go into how your skin changes as you age, and many of them are outside of your control.
These factors are inherent to your biology and genetics – they play a significant role in how your skin ages. Some people are genetically predisposed to age more slowly or develop fewer wrinkles, while others may inherit genes that make them more susceptible to certain signs of aging.
Combat Sun Damage with Sunscreen
One factor you can limit, however, is your exposure to external elements, including ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. UV exposure can accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin, leading to the development of wrinkles, fine lines, and sunspots.
It’s not just for the beach; sunscreen is your first line of defense against premature aging. So before you hit the outdoors, protect yourself with a proven product like our broad spectrum SPF 30 Mineral Face Lotion.
Drinking water does more than just hydrate your body – it moisturizes your skin from the inside out. Sip on that H2O throughout the day (it’s recommended the average guy drinks 64 to 80 ounces per day) but also consider investing in a quality moisturizer.
Our Daily Face Moisturizer hydrates and restores your skin’s moisture with a lightweight, non-greasy daily lotion. The formula uses Naturally Derived Ingredients to give your face next-level smoothness.
Get Your 40 Winks
A good night's rest is vital for cellular repair and rejuvenation. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night to keep your skin looking youthful and those under-eye bags in check.
Balanced Diet = Youthful Skin
Your diet fuels your body and nourishes your skin. Load up on antioxidants from fruits and veggies, embrace omega-3 fatty acids from fish, and indulge in foods rich in collagen boosters, like bone broth.
Exercise Your Way to Youth
Regular physical activity improves circulation, boosts collagen production, and helps maintain a healthy weight. So, hit the gym, go for a run, or find a sport you enjoy – your skin will reflect your commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
Practice stress-reduction techniques like meditation or yoga to keep those cortisol levels in check. A calm mind and reduced stress levels can lead to smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Get a Better Skincare Routine
Still rolling in dirt and scrubbing your face with paint thinner? Yeah, that’s probably not going to work out great in the long term. It’s time you invested in a real skincare routine.
Cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing products can make a world of difference in your skin's appearance. Get all of them together in our complete skincare regimen.
Ditch the Booze and Smokes
Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can accelerate aging like nobody's business. Kick these habits to the curb, and you'll not only look younger but also feel healthier overall.
Age is Only a Number … Until it Isn’t
Yes, you’re getting older. We all are. But the important thing to remember is HOW you want to get older.
By incorporating these anti-aging tips into your daily life, you'll not only look your best but also feel your best as you navigate the years with confidence. And nothing looks more youthful than that.
