Avoid Skin Aging - Anthony lorca tips

10 tips for men who want to avoid the aging of their skin

As a model and actor, I always need to have my skin in perfect condition for photo shoots and filming. The more the years pass, the more the lines of wrinkles settle down and the more it is difficult for me to keep a young and glowing skin. Here are 10 tips that I apply daily to take care of my skin and to prevent its aging.
 

  1. Avoid exposing your face to the sun

This is surely the most important advice. The sun can be very bad for your skin and can cause premature aging of it. That is why I always apply sunscreen with a minimum index of 30 on my face if I have to go outside and I avoid exposing my face directly to the sun. When I sunbathe, I avoid the hottest hours of the day and I always wear sunglasses and a hat.

  1. Stay hydrated

It is essential to drink water throughout the day in order to drain, evacuate toxins and have an optimal blood circulation. I always avoid getting dehydrated because this can cause the loose of elasticity of my skin. I drink the equivalent of 1.5L of water per day, especially in the form of green teas, rich in antioxidants.

  1. Avoid alcohol and tobacco

It’s no secret that tobacco and alcohol are the enemies of our skin and our health in general. Tobacco accelerates aging of the skin and alcohol causes dehydration of the epidermis. I can only advise you to quit smoking and drink less alcohol if you want to take care of your skin.

  1. Take care of your diet

Food rich in antioxidants (such as tomatoes or strawberries), vitamins (such as fruits and vegetables) and omega-3 (such as fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel or sardines) should be favored. It is especially important to eat a healthy diet and avoid industrial foods, often rich in refined carbohydrates and saturated fatty acids, also called bad fats. For my part, I cook all my dishes and I avoid fast food. I eat at least 3 fruits per day and 250 grams of vegetables per meal. I prefer fresh foods rather than frozen and canned foods.

  1. Take care of your sleep

It is surely the basic secret to having a smooth face all your life. Short nights and insomnia accelerates the aging of the body and especially of the skin because it is during the night that the skin regenerates and repairs itself, notably skin damage such as sunburns. I always take care of my sleeping conditions. For example, I avoid overly generous meals in the evening, I take care of the quality of my bedding, and also of the temperature of my room. I sleep between 8 and 9 hours a day on a regular basis and try to go to bed at a fixed time.

  1. Carry out your physical activity

Sport promotes the oxygenation of your skin and stimulates your blood circulation. Likewise, getting a breath of fresh air has the power to tighten pores, oxygenate the skin and stimulate the blood circulation. In addition, physical exercise provides a feeling of well-being, improves the quality of your sleep and reduces stress. By my side, I practice at least 2 hours of cardio per week (jogging and swimming) and I really like hiking, as well as other outdoor activities like snowboarding.

  1. De-stress

I strongly recommend that you incorporate relaxation activities into your daily routine (such as reading, yoga, meditation, self-massage, etc.) in order to reduce your stress, relax your face and improve your health in general. Personally, I dedicate one hour of my time per day to reading and I practice one hour of yoga per week. The holidays are also a great way to disconnect from my obligations and from my daily routine and I always find that my facial skin is visibly tighter when I return from vacation.

  1. Cleanse your skin

It is very important to cleanse your skin at least once a day with a soft cleanser suitable for your skin type by softly massaging your face in order to stimulate your blood circulation. I personally wash my facial skin with L’Oréal Paris Skincare Men Expert cleanser once or twice a day.

  1. Hydrate your skin

It is also essential to moisturize your skin at least once a day, especially when it is subjected to external aggressions (cold, sun, wind, etc.). There are a whole series of creams depending on your type of skin (normal, dry, oily or mixted). I always recommend using a moisturizing lotion in the evening after washing your skin, such as coconut oil, to hydrate it deeply and promote its repair overnight. Anti-aging creams also help to reduce wrinkles and / or prevent their appearance. As a day cream, I use Clinique moisturizing fluid for men and Elizabeth Arden 8 hour protective balm as a night cream.

If you are looking for an anti-aging cream, I recommend the Avant Bio Advanced Ultra-Fine Texture Day Moisturizer with mattifying effect. In addition, you can have 15% discount with the coupon ANTHONY15.

  1. Exfoliate your skin

Once a week, make gentle scrubs to remove dead skin and stimulate cell renewal. Your skin will look younger and more radiant. However, avoid doing it too often because excessively repeated exfoliators can promote the appearance of redness, cause acne breakout or the hypersensitivity of your skin. As an exfoliant, I use either a natural activated carbon scrub infused with collagen and stem cells or detox black soap with activated carbon.

Here are the practices that I follow every day to avoid premature aging of my skin and to be able to work for many more years as an actor and a model. Click on the image below or on this link to discover all the products that I use daily for taking care of my skin.

    Your tips work for women, too.

    I like Cetaphil Gentle cleanser, Aveeno Face Scrub, Oil of Olay for day, and cocoa butter for night. The cocoa butter helped reduce some small acne scars I had.

    Thank you for the tips.

      Thanks Anthony for the advice. I bought some NIVEA CREME today. I hope that works, because my face gets so dry. Flaky skin. It drives me up the wall. I will try to drink more water. Thanks again.

      Being in the entertainment/performance industry, I understand and agree 100% percent with you. If I may, I would also like to suggest the use of a day/ night moisturizer and eye cream.
      Keep up your good work and being the inspiration to us all.

      Hi Katt,
      Sleeping conditions are indeed very important in order to allow the body and the skin to recover during the night. I always try to keep a temperature of around 64ºF in my room and make sure I have a mattress with good ventilation.
      I hope that helps!

    Greetings from Los Angeles! Im professional Cosmetologist nearly 30 years. Great information of skin care, moisturizer is most important factor needed.

  4. I had a model friend that also advised getting oneself daily into a position that causes the blood to rush to the head/face. Ever hear that one?
    And, a good retinal cream is a bonus to help with that exfoliating. I’m about to apply my nightly Tretinoin Cream. Thank you for sharing!

      Hi!
      It depends mainly on the temperature to which your skin is subjected and the projections to which your skin can be subjected (for example hot oil). I really advise you to protect your skin when you work.
