Six Ways to Maintain a Youthful Appearance
One of the greatest reoccurring issues with time is that it’s impossible to slow it down or rewind it. However, there are ways to minimize its impact on your skin with the use of highly-effective procedures, facials, diet and skin care tips. Until someone finds the fountain of youth, refer to the following six best ways to maintain a youthful appearance.
How to Best Maintain a Youthful Appearance
Everyone’s skin care needs are unique, and finding a regimen or treatment that works isn’t always easy. To help you find the best match for your skin, start with these six recommendations to sustain a glowing, youthful appearance.
Otherwise known as the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment, botox is a minimally invasive procedure that can be used to treat wrinkles in the forehead, neck, lower face, and mouth. Botox comes from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin, which is produced from a non-toxic organism found in natural environments called Clostridium botulinum. After Botox is injected, the chemical blocks nerve transmission in nearby muscles, freezing the surrounding area. Since the muscle can’t contract, the wrinkles begin to relax. This process allows them to soften and further prevents new lines from appearing. If you’re seeking noticeably smoother skin and reduced wrinkles, Botox may be a great option to investigate.
Microneedling is another minimally invasive technique used to treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. During the procedure, tiny punctures are made in the first layer of the skin using micro-fine needles. These microscopic injuries stimulate the body’s wound healing processes, boosting collagen production and allowing for the growth of new skin cells. The positive results of microneedling have made the procedure increasingly popular for reducing visible scars and wrinkles.
HydraFacial can cater to all skincare issues, including fine lines, elasticity, tone, texture, dark spots, oily skin, and enlarged pores. This facial is so popular that one is performed every 15 seconds. The HydraFacial device cleanses, exfoliates, and infuses the skin with award-winning serums tailored to your specific concerns. Because it can treat such a wide range of issues and complexions, the HydraFacial appeals to all age groups.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable liquid made of Poly-L-Lactic Acid. It works to gradually stimulate your body to replace lost collagen and regain a more youthful appearance. By working within the deep dermis, Sculptra restores the inner structure and volume of your skin. Many patients use Sculptra to reduce sunken cheeks and to fill wrinkles. Unlike other injectables like Botox, Sculptra works with your body’s collagen to produce more natural results.
Skin care Regimen
The youthfulness and overall health of your skin is largely a reflection of your skin care routine. Simple acts such as washing your face with a gentle cleanser is crucial to help remove bacteria or oils from your face. Your skin care regimen should also include exfoliating to remove dead skin cells and achieve a healthy glow. Your skin care steps should always end with moisturizing your skin. Lack of skin hydration is a huge contributor to fine lines and wrinkles, and adding a quality moisturizer to your regimen can help fight signs of aging.
One of the biggest keys outside of your beauty routine to maintain a youthful appearance is to watch your diet. While your body breaks down sugary foods and processed carbs, sugar bonds to molecules found in collagen and elastin. This bond degrades them and leads to the appearance of wrinkles. If you’re craving something sweet, try opting for dark chocolate. In addition to aging the skin, poor eating habits can also cause acne and inflammation. Try incorporating lean proteins, vegetables, and Omega-3 fatty acids into your diet, to boost collagen, fight fine lines and inflammation, and maintain radiating skin.
