Youthful Skin: 15 Easy Anti-Aging Skin Care Secrets
The condition of the skin on your face, neck, and décolleté reveal your age. Genes and the environment play a big factor in the aging process and can prevent you from having youthful skin.
Unfortunately, aging is inevitable. Probably not the news you wanted to hear, but there’s good news if you use SiO Beauty patches.
SiO’s medical-grade beauty patches are formulated with silicone and oxygen and fit like a second skin. They go to work overnight, reducing wrinkle depth while you sleep.
Take a look at the following 15 easy anti-aging skin care secrets compiled by SiO Beauty experts. It’s time to get proactive with environmental factors for the overall health and appearance of your skin!
Secrets For Youthful Skin: Start On The Inside
Youthful-looking skin begins on the inside. What you put in your body is just as important as what you put on your body, and it reflects in the appearance of your skin.
You are what you eat! Be wise about the substances you’re putting into your body. Your skin will thank you later!
1) Eat Healthy Foods
- Almonds (or any kind of nut)
These superfoods will not only help you feel better but will also benefit the overall health and glow of your skin.
2) Avoid White Sugar
White sugar in sweets, sodas, and other pre-packaged foods can cause an insulin spike, which leads to inflammation in your body...even in your face. You may notice some blemishes after eating these sugary foods.
3) Take Omega-3 Fish Oil
Omega-3 fish oil is commonly known for its heart-health benefits, but it’s also amazing for your skin. That’s because omega-3s contain DHA and EPA.
The EPA strand (eicosapentaenoic acid) contains benefits for your skin. It regulates oil production, adding a boost of hydration to your skin and preventing breakouts. Added benefit: omega-3s can help ward off wrinkles!
4) Drink Lots of Water
Hydrate your body with water. The recommended amount of water intake per day is half of your body weight in ounces.
That sounds like a lot, but it’s really not once you get used to it. And before long, the benefits of hydrating your body from the inside out will far outweigh any desire you may have to consume sugary drinks.
Hydrating your body on the inside flushes all the toxins out of your system. This type of cleansing keeps your skin gorgeous and glowing by reducing your chances of blemishes or other skin problems.
5) Limit Alcohol Intake
It’s a known fact that a little red wine is good for your heart health. While that may be true, we have to be wise about what type of alcohol we’re consuming, as some can actually be more damaging to your skin than others.
Alcoholic drinks that are high in sugar and salt content can cause skin inflammation and dryness — hence the way you look the next day. Too much alcohol can actually age your skin.
A good rule of thumb is to limit your alcohol intake and choose your drinks wisely to maintain youthful skin.
6) Meditate Daily
Meditation is a technique during which you clear your mind and thoughts. The goal is to achieve mental clarity and emotional calmness.
What does this have to do with skin care? Your “state of mind” can show up on your skin and reveal your age. Calming your mind and emotions results in a more relaxed posture and more youthful skin!
7) Get Good Rest
Nobody looks refreshed after a rough night. While some of those nights are unavoidable, make sure you’re getting good rest in general. After all, it is called beauty sleep!
One secret to waking up with younger-looking skin is to sleep on your back. While sleeping on your side, your face rubs up against your pillow and, over time, creates wrinkles.
After a good night’s sleep (on your back!), you’ll feel and look refreshed.
Secrets For Youthful Skin: Maximize Your Skin Care Routine
8) Always Take Off Makeup At Night
Even if you’re tired, don’t go to sleep without taking off your makeup! Sleeping in your makeup can be detrimental to your skin’s health.
All the bacteria and minerals from your makeup can clog your pores and, over time, age your skin. Wash your face at night to create a clean slate on your skin before applying SiO Beauty patches.
9) Moisturize Your Skin
After you remove your makeup and your skin is clean, use a moisturizer. Moisturizing your skin in the morning and evening will boost skin hydration and prevent dry and flaky skin.
Moisturizing also improves the texture and tone of your skin, which reveals a more youthful skin appearance over time.
When you exfoliate, you remove dead skin cells to achieve an even skin tone. If you do not exfoliate, the dead skin cells will build up and lead to dry skin and create blemishes.
Exfoliate your face two to three times per week for smoother, younger-looking skin.
11) Protect Your Skin From UV Rays
The sun is rich in vitamin D, which is necessary for healthy skin, but being out in the sun unprotected has serious long-term consequences. It can cause dryness, a change in skin pigmentation, and aging.
Luckily, you can add sunscreen to your daily skin care routine to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
Sun-damaged skin shows up most prominently on your face and décolleté. Use the SiO SkinPad to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in those areas and help reverse sun damage.
12) Treat Your Eyes
The delicate skin around your eyes is one of the first areas to show visible signs of aging. This area is comprised of thin skin, resulting in noticeable changes, including puffiness, wrinkles, and dark circles.
Do not neglect this area!
You’ll need to treat the skin around your eyes carefully with special creams. Even applying a cool compress to the area will help with puffiness.
If you’re already noticing crow’s feet tiptoeing their way in, use SiO Eye & Smile Lift patches in the evening and wake up to brighter eyes.
13) Treat Your Lips
We know those laugh lines aren’t funny. SiO’s beauty experts are here to help you take care of your lips.
The skin on and around your lips is delicate. And just like the delicate skin around your eyes, the skin around your lips requires special attention.
You can start by exfoliating your lips. Then, to treat lip wrinkles, wear SiO Super LipLift while sleeping or for a few hours during the day. And remember to save the patches. You can use them up to 10 times!

14) Avoid Powder
The American Academy of Dermatology explains that powder can dry out your skin and may also cause cracks in your skin, which could lead to an infection.
Powders can also clog your pores and expose fine lines and wrinkles. Using a cream blush instead of powder blush gives your cheekbones a youthful glow.
15) Fill In Your Brows
People typically don’t notice eyebrows right off the bat, but in some instances, your eyebrows can seriously reveal your age.
That’s because as you age, your estrogen levels drop, which contributes to the shortening and thinning of your eyebrows. Eyebrows that are too thin or too arched are dead giveaways for aging skin.
The secret is to fill in your eyebrows to add years to your face. This is a quick fix. SiO BrowLift patches, on the other hand, are a solution that will last.
These patches will smooth and decrease the appearance of brow and forehead wrinkles while you sleep.
Achieve Youthful Skin With SiO Beauty Patches
SiO Beauty offers patches for your eyes and mouth, brow, neck, and décolleté. According to SiO Beauty experts, when you snooze, you lose...wrinkles!
If you’ve noticed aging skin but don’t want to fork out the money for expensive in-office visits — like laser treatments or Botox — SiO beauty patches are your answer.
Dr. Dendy, SiO’s medical advisor, says, “For patients that are hesitant to use injectibles, such as Botox, that prevent wrinkles, the SiO Beauty patches are the closest most effective alternate at home solution. These patches both correct existing wrinkles and, when worn over time, prevent new wrinkles from forming.”
Don’t lose sleep over aging, but rather, lose years of aging while you sleep!
