What Makes A Man Look Old? 

Before discussing how to reduce your aging signs, it's vital to understand what makes you age in the first place.

Here are some of the main causes:

Inadequate Sleep  

Sleep deprivation does more harm to your skin than you can imagine...

Getting adequate sleep doesn't just help avoid those dark circles that can add years to your face; it also helps improve your skin's elasticity and decreases the appearance of wrinkles.

It also helps to improve your skin's PH levels and helps your body to release toxins that can damage your skin.

Disregarding The Importance of Sunscreen 

There are no two ways about it - you can't ignore sunscreen if you want your skin to look healthy and young.

Sunscreen protects you from dark spots, wrinkles, sunburn, hyperpigmentation, and other effects of ultraviolet rays. Not to mention, it also decreases your risk of developing skin cancer.

Neglecting Fruits and Veggies 

Fruits and vegetables contain essential nutrients that promote skin health. These nutrients include Vitamins A, C, and E, which help to decrease the appearance of aging signs and scars.

In addition, they contain antioxidants that fight off harmful chemicals and cells that can damage your skin. So, be sure to include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet if you want to keep your skin looking young and healthy!

Smoking Cigarettes 

You've probably heard that smoking does lots of damage to your lungs, but that's not all… they harm your skin and many other body organs. Smoking cigarettes increases your risk of wrinkles and eye bags. They also contain toxic chemicals that affect your collagen levels and decrease your skin's elasticity. 

Drinking Alcohol 

If you're serious about keeping your skin youthful for as long as possible, then stay away from alcohol. If you can't completely ignore alcohol, try to reduce your intake.  

Alcohol can reduce the level of antioxidants in your skin. 

It also allows free radicals to have a field day damaging your skin cells. Not only that, but it can decrease the production of collagen, which is one of the key proteins that keep your skin looking young!

Can You Improve Your Skin at 60? 

The aging process is inevitable, but that doesn't mean you can't do anything to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful!

The key is to adopt healthy lifestyles that promote skin health. This includes eating plenty of fruits and vegetables and limiting your exposure to harmful chemicals, not only from cigarettes and alcohol but also from what you put on your skin!

Best Skincare Regimen For Men Over 60 

There is no magic age at which you "must" start caring about your skin. The general rule of thumb is to start as early as possible and maintain healthy habits to prevent visible aging signs from appearing too soon!

But the truth is, even if you're over 60, you can take steps to keep your skin looking young and radiant.

Here's the best skincare routine to adopt when you hit your 60s: 

  • Wash Your Face  

    It may seem like a no-brainer, but washing your face with a mild natural face cleanser every day is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking its best. This makes sure that there's no oil or dirt build-up that can cause breakouts and ensures that tired, dull-looking skin is a thing of the past!

  • Exfoliate  

    When you're young, your skin cells have a life cycle of about 30 days. However, as you age, that life cycle decreases, which means dead skin cells typically remain on your skin for longer periods before they're sloughed off naturally.

    Exfoliating your skin with a men's face scrub helps you eliminate these dead skin cells, which in turn helps your skin look smoother and brighter.

  • Moisturize

    Moisturizing your skin immediately after washing or exfoliating helps to keep your skin from becoming dry and irritated, two common problems that accompany aging skin.

    A quality quality face moisturizer for men will also help to fight wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots, so it's definitely worth taking the time to find the right one for your skin type and to apply it regularly!

  • Wear Sunscreen  

    The best skincare routine for men over 60 includes a daily application of sunscreen to help protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays that can cause you to age beyond your years! So make sure to lather up with a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day, even if you're just going for a walk around the block!
