Getting older isn't fun, but it doesn't have to be hard. We would all like to reverse the aging process, but the solution to reversing the aging process has yet to be discovered and probably won't be. Our body and skin are going to age regardless of whether we want it to or not. While this can be a painful thought, the good news is that we can take steps to slow down the aging process.
Some of these steps include using pro-aging products and luckily the men who try A Complete get addicted to the calming, unisex scent. Skin care products effectiveness and affordability are at an all-time high. Advances in technology allow people to treat symptoms of aging to provide a younger looking appearance.
People can now purchase skin care products that were in past times unaffordable and only available in doctor’s offices at a local drugstore. What’s even more surprising is that men's anti-aging products are on the rise. Psst! If you’re reading this and you’re a woman, pass this blog on to a guy! Let's talk about some of the reasons men are actively using pro-aging/anti-aging products.
Pro-Aging is all the buzzword and we use it at A Complete to further our mission that beauty comes from within and there’s positivity in aging. It is said the way you perceive aging can influence how you age. Some say that aging is a self-fulfilling prophecy, positive and negative attitudes can affect your health, psychologically and even biologically.
In 2001 Yale and Harvard conducted a study looking at 660 participants who participated in a community-based survey. They measured how self-perception of aging impacted survival over the course of 22.6 years. They found that participants that had a more positive attitude about their own aging lived an average of 7.5 years longer!
However, in addition to pro-aging, what can we do to slow down aging? This is where anti-aging products come in.
Benefits of Anti-Aging Products for Men?
Being a guy, a few wrinkles here and there can add character, but don't be racing to get fine lines, wrinkles, and crow's feet. Sun damage can cause wrinkles and so you want to make sure your skin is healthy. Wearing sunscreen and minimizing sun exposure can help avoid leathery skin, but sometimes you need a little more, such as anti-aging products.
Anti-Aging Tips For Men
Anti-Aging products can improve the tone and texture of your skin by improving circulation to the skin’s surface. In addition, making your skin appear and feel softer to the touch. Let's talk about a few anti-aging tips you can practice each day.
Moisturize Dry Skin
Many men are prone to dry skin and may have dry patches appearing on the cheeks, nose, and forehead as they get older. Moisturizers provide the added moisture needed for the skin especially before and after shaving! Not using moisturizer can means more breakouts. For men, apply moisturizer to your skin at least once a day. Focus most on applying moisturizer on the forehead and under the eyes as these are areas most prone to wrinkles.
Wash your Face
Wash your face morning and night. Step up your skincare game by using a cleanser to help provide smoother skin. Especially for men with beards. A Complete’s Youth Preserve Deep Cleanser is perfect for the skin and facial hair. This removes dirt, oil, dead skin, and helps your skin to look its best.
Sunscreen is one of the most important steps as its benefits crucial for outdoorsy men. Slap on sunscreen next time you are in the sun as it prevents premature aging. Sunscreen helps shield your skin from the sun which can cause developing signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Sunscreen should not just be used at the beach but should be used daily to prevent damage from UV Rays.
