Navigating the obstacles of adulting can bring about numerous changes. But if there’s one thing we all want to preserve, it’s a youthful appearance — one that is untouched by the stresses of everyday life. That’s why it’s essential to have a daily ritual filled with mindfulness activities, complemented by a skin-repairing, retinol-charged evening skincare regimen, to help you stay fresh-faced inside and out.
Morning: Start the day intentional with five-minute journalling
Before you start your day, take five minutes to express your gratitude and highlight short-term goals you hope to achieve in the upcoming hours. This exercise helps you gain mental clarity and cultivate a positive mindset. Plus, the sense of accomplishment you’ll get after hitting one goal after another will surely uplift your spirits, which is key to radiating a youthful aura throughout the day.
Afternoon: Embrace mindful movement with lunchtime Pilates
Aching backs and stiff muscles could be telltale signs of ageing. Breathe life back into your body during your lunch break by incorporating daily mindful movement, like Pilates, into your routine. This exercise, which involves gentle stretching and strengthening, alleviates tension and gets your blood pumping.
Evening: Get in touch with nature
Did you know that stress can accelerate ageing? Reconnect with nature, whether it’s going on a DIY forest bathing walk or treating yourself to a fresh bouquet of flowers on your way home. Surrounding yourself with nature’s embrace — sans gadgets — is known to help lower your stress levels and enhance your youthful vitality.
Night: Apply your retinol products before you go to bed
Conclude your day by unwinding with a trusted and effective anti-wrinkle routine such as the Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Retinol range so your skin reflects the youthful-looking glow you embody. Each product in this pre-ageing collection is powered by a uniquely stabilised retinol formulation that gradually delivers pure retinol to the skin while minimising the potential for irritation. It’s a gentle and impactful introduction to incorporate retinol and jumpstart your anti-wrinkle skincare routine.
Infused with hydrating hyaluronic acid and anti-wrinkle booster Glucose Complex, its formula works synergistically with retinol to effectively reduce fine lines, dullness, wrinkles, and dark spots — in as fast as seven days.^
How to incorporate this pre-ageing skincare ritual
After removing your makeup and cleansing your skin thoroughly, pamper your delicate eye area with the Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Retinol Eye Cream. Its oil-free formula fades the look of fine lines and stubborn crow’s feet, as well as brightens and evens out the skin tone around the eye area.
To maximise your beauty sleep, apply the Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Retinol Night Moisturizer. This anti-wrinkle moisturiser contains Pure Retinol that lifts and firms up the skin, as well as continuously renews its appearance overnight, so you’ll wake up to a more radiant, youthful-looking complexion.
In the morning, start the day fresh with the Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Retinol Regenerating Cream. This formula rejuvenates your skin by smoothing out fine lines, texture and deep wrinkles, one pearl-sized dollop at a time. When using retinol products, don't forget to protect your skin with a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection and SPF 30 or higher during the day. P.S. We recommend the Neutrogena® Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Face Lotion Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++++.
Embrace these daily activities and you’re on a mindful journey to preserving your youthfulness, both in body and spirit.
