Television anchors featured during the third hour of the TODAY show share their advice weekly on a wide range of topics. They’ve covered subjects such as how to pack for a trip and creating the ideal burger as part of the Producer Challenge. One week the team decided to have the anchors share their favorite tips for slowing or halting the aging process in order to feel young as long as possible. Each anchor picked products they wanted to share with the audience and are not affiliated with the brands whose products they shared.
Among Dylan’s favorite anti-aging products is La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-in Sunscreen, a product that can be purchased at the local Walmart or online at Amazon. As a meteorologist, Dylan understands the importance of protection from the elements, stating she uses sunscreen daily regardless of the weather. The sunscreen, as reported by the manufacturer, is quickly absorbed into the skin and leaves behind a velvety finish.
Sunscreen does more than simply block UVA and UVB rays. It ensures the skin does not burn when exposed to the rays of the sun and minimizes sun damage. For this reason, sunscreen should be applied every morning to hold off the signs of aging.
A silk pillowcase, such as the Slip Silk Pillowcase available at Sephora and Nordstrom, is another personal favorite of hers. The silk provides a softer surface than cotton and is less abrasive on the skin. Furthermore, it helps the delicate facial skin retain moisture, and women know how important one’s beauty sleep is. While she didn’t specifically mention this product, Kourtney Kardashian and Kerry Washington rave about it regularly.
Silk pillowcases are naturally hypoallergenic and the skin is exposed to fewer chemicals when this bedding product is used. In addition, the feel of silk provides the user with a luxury experience every night at bedtime. Why restrict yourself to being treated only on special occasions when you can pamper yourself every night?
Amazon carries a wide range of products, including some skin care items the TODAY anchors love. A good example of this is the Amazon Basics Washcloths. Sheinelle turns to a washcloth to steam her face using the hottest water possible. Doing so opens the pores, and the anchor shared her grandmother embroiders the cloths for her. Although she never specifically named a washcloth brand, these Amazon towels come with an affordable price. Duchess Kate likewise shared her love of washcloths or face flannels.
Using a washcloth ensures more makeup is removed from the skin. Dab the washcloth with a cleansing lotion designed for the skin type and be sure to rinse thoroughly. A washcloth can be of great help when rinsing also.
People often skip serum and use only a moisturizer as part of their skincare routine. However, each serves a different purpose and Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum is a great product everyone should try. Available at Sephora and Ulta, the serum should be applied before the moisturizer, as the serum reaches deeper into the skin. This is the wrinkle cream Sheinelle turns to because it helps to fight fine lines and wrinkles while evening out the texture of the skin.
Once the serum has been applied, it’s time to reach for a moisturizer. Consider trying Dermalogica’s Super Rich Repair Moisturizer available at Sephora. This anti-wrinkle cream is excellent for those men and women who suffer from skin that remains chronically dry and dehydrated. Moisturizer is of great help to those who suffer from dry skin as well as uneven skin tone and texture and is also beneficial for those who have imperfections on the skin. The moisturizer minimizes these blemishes.
Men may find they don’t feel comfortable making use of a wide range of anti-aging products on their skin. This doesn’t mean males should neglect this organ. Al, for example, recommends men take the time to focus on their breathing. He read an article in The New York Times about how doing nothing at times is the best thing for a person.
When he becomes stressed, he turns to his Apple Watch to make use of guided breathing meditation. Doing so allows him to be at one with himself and simply take a breath.
In contrast, Craig finds running to be of benefit when he needs a break or is stressed. He relies on the Nike Run Club app to provide him with motivation. Not only does the app track the user’s runs, but it also offers coaching tips. While engaging in this activity, Craig listens to a music playlist that he has spent years creating.
These are all great recommendations, but what works for one person might not be appropriate for another. The key is to find a skincare program that can easily be followed and engage in activities that are truly enjoyable. Individuals who achieve these two goals find they look and feel younger for years to come.
