3 Ways to Prevent Aging
My skin goes through so much wear and tear on the daily (from traveling and just an over all chaotic work schedule) that it’s important to me that I take care of it! Above just having milky smooth skin, I want to maintain a fresh and dewy face for as long as possible. There’s no end all be all answer to anti-aging. There are beauty products you can try of course, but usually it’s doing a multitude of things that make up a youthful and fresh face! Here are 3 ways I’m mindful in regards to treating my face to help prevent my skin from premature wrinkling and aging!
Be gentle on your skin!
After washing your face, you want to be dabbing your towel fingers on your skin instead of tugging or wiping. This is extremely important because tugging or wiping with towel can stretch your skin (creating wrinkles) in the long run. A light dabbing motion will also leave a little bit of moisture on your skin instead of completely drying it out before you start your skincare routine! Growing up, I’ve always watched my mom apply her 3 step Korean skincare routine and so now when I apply my serum and moisturizer I’m also in the habit of dabbing the product into my face. I don’t know if you guys also do this or not, but I find that this gesture is a lot more gentle on your skin!
There really is an app for everything!
I recently saw a Korean celebrity use this app and I had to try it out for myself! After dabbing my skin dry, I’ll put on all my moisturizers (a night oil works the best) and turn on this app for a quick 3 minute face massage. This app has 7 different face massages from morning to night, and categories such as anti-aging, regenerating face lift, and eye massage. The ‘Facial Massage App’ will give you instructions on how to massage your face, step by step and area by area! This is definitely one of the best investments I’ve made for my skin and it’s less than 5 dollars! And come on, we all have an extra 3 minutes!
Healthy eyes are happy eyes!
It’s so easy for me to get lost in emails and there are days where I’d get so immersed in work that I forget to step away from my laptop for breaks. Is anyone else with me on this? But it’s so important to take care of your eyes! It’s very easy to just sit in front of the computer all day, but trust me .. stepping away for even a few minutes will be good for your eyes in the long run. I also like to do an eye massage to release some of the tension in my eyes. When Chloe goes to bed is when I start working, so my eyes end up being very tired late at night! I like to do this eye massage before using my eye masks before sleeping!
And there you have it! My three simple tips for taking care of your skin! Just because you might not have wrinkles now, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of your skin now. Remember, starting a good skin care routine can help prevent wrinkles in the long run!

Great tips, as always! I think it’s very important to take care of your skin – the one that you’ll have for your whole life 🙂
I follow your blog/youtube and I noticed that the design improved a lot – I love it!
Thank you for this share, I defo agree with the dabbing after seeing the drastic change in my skin. Never much focused on the eye massage but certainly now added to my 3mins care.
I think treating your skin gently is so important.
What’s the name of the massage app?
Hi! Can’t seem to find the massage app. Want to make sure I get the right one. Is there a link or other way to find? Thnx! Sorry to bug u!
The face massage app looks extremely useful, I will definitely be downloading it. I always see a difference in my skin when I massage my face, so hopefully now I will be able to do it properly!
Beautiful essential tips for life! Fabulous! 🙂

Thank you so much for these amazing tips Chriselle <3 Honestly, ever since I started working full-time, I can see and feel my skin becoming more and more tired. Definitely can't wait to try that app 🙂 It sounds amazing!
Those are good tips. I sometimes forget not to pat or dab dry instead of wiping. I like the Korean apps, I think they are a fun way to pamper yourself too.
I love that your pictures are looking so natural! xx
Aw thank you so much Kaja! xoxo

I really want to try that app, facial massage is something I am missing in my otherwise very thorough skincare regime.

I will try to remember to dab my face instead of tugging or quickly wiping. Often times I’m in such a hurry that it’s easy to forget to be more gentle on my skin!
It’s a hard habit to get into, but it’s definitely worth it in the long run! xoxo

Love the insight your skincare posts provide. I need it in this area. I probably don’t do enough for my skin. I do have an extensive moisturizing routine post-showers. Eczema problems.
Hi Thuy! I’m so glad you enjoy the posts! Thank you so much! xoxo
Good tips! But I think we should not be scary about getting older. I think wrinkels belong to everyones life. In my opinion a lot of people look good with some wrinkles. But taking care of your skin is absolutely important.
Beautiful images and great tips!
