When it comes to preserving our youthful glow, we look to methods that work, no matter how out of the box they may seem. To prove how open-minded we are, we’ve rounded up five slightly ridiculous antiaging tricks we’ve found to be totally effective. Don’t knock ’em till you try ’em—your face will thank you.
1. Exercise Your Face
You may be a regular at your local yoga studio, but it’s time you start exercising the area above your shoulders. All it takes is a few minutes of stretching each day to prevent common wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s-feet.
2. Cut Your Hair
You might think your hair has nothing to do with how your face is aging, but it actually makes a huge difference.
3. Tint your Car Window
By now you know the sun can wreak major havoc on your skin. Not only does unprotected sun exposure contribute to your risk of skin cancer, it also causes premature aging. Ninety percent of skin changes commonly attributed to aging are actually the result of sun damage. Make sure to wear a daily SPF, but take it a step further and tint your car windows to help fend off sun exposure while you drive.
4. Shave Your Face
Taking a razor to your face isn’t just the best way to tackle peach fuzz. Dermaplaning is a type of exfoliation (similar to microdermabrasion) that utilizes a sharp tool to gently remove the top layer of the skin and excess facial hair, resulting in smooth, baby-like skin. Regular use promotes cell turnover for a youthful glow and helps skin soak up more of your antiaging products. Get ready to be carded.
