At some point in our adult lives, most of us wonder how we can prevent the signs of aging. We encourage you to talk to your provider about minimally invasive and surgical aesthetic treatments. While these treatments provide effective results in a short amount of time, there are also other things you can do on your own to help boost that youthful glow.
Here are a few tips for maintaining your youth:
UV radiation contributes to sagging skin, wrinkles and fine lines, collagen and elastin deterioration, dullness, red spots, and much more. To help prevent these signs of aging, apply an SPF product every day, with enough coverage to protect all exposed skin. There is a misconception that you do not have to wear sunscreen every day, but this is incorrect! Sunscreen is important every day, rain or shine.
Sleep is a natural reparative process; it rebuilds collagen and increases blood flow to the skin. Sleep recharges your mind, prevents the increase of stress hormones caused by lack of sleep, supports brain function, and allows the mind and body to be more alert during the day.
What you eat and drink affects your skin and supportive tissues, as well as your body weight. The antioxidants in healthy foods will fight environmental harm to your skin, such as UV damage, as well as protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals. Foods that are naturally rich in Vitamin C, such as oranges, kiwis, and broccoli, help your body form collagen. On the other hand, excessive sugar intake has been linked to aging and wrinkled, sagging skin.
Physical activity will help your overall mood and sleep, which goes hand-in-hand with a youthful, rested disposition.
Drinking water and staying hydrated is an important part of your health. Overall health usually shows up as glowing, healthy skin. That being said, you should make sure to stay hydrated with water for a youthful complexion.
