Although we’re not a huge fan of the word “anti-aging” as we feel you should be proud of your age at any stage, we do think you can age gracefully as the years pass by, and defy some outward appearances of age or the aging process without surgery.
Reasons Your Skin Ages or Appears Aged
Clearly age itself is a reason why our skin begins to breakdown and we begin to appear more tired. Fine lines and wrinkles appear on our face due to sun exposure, stress, smoking, alcohol, and even hereditary factors.
As you age, your skin does not produce new cells as readily, so its elasticity lessens and your skin itself becomes drier.
So how can you combat the signs of aging naturally and anti-age gracefully? Here are a few tips…
Stop Smoking – we know it’s a big one, but the health affects are enormous, and aging is right up there on the list of issues smoking creates. So break the habit!
Stay Out of the Sun – it’s hard to stay out of the sun during the summer months, we get it, but it’s one thing to play in the sun and another entirely to lie in the sun for hours. So play responsibly, use sunscreen liberally, and begin to diminish the affects it’s having on your skin year after year.
Moisturize – use a moisturizer that is right for your skin type. Being over-hydrated (oily) or under-hydrated (dry) can be equally as harmful in terms of the health of your skin. So see a professional regarding the right skincare line and moisturizer for you.
Eat Right – eating right is so imperative. From a healthy body weight, to the tone and texture of your skin, to actually aging your skin …eating right plays an important role in how you look and feel. So choose wisely.
Other ways to prompt your skin to regenerate include chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments and anti-aging products – all of which we offer at Azure Skin Care + Medical, and would be happy to help you find the right treatment or creams for you.
