Get Glowing: A Guide to Preventative Skin Care

Oct '23

No one can stop time. But with the right habits and professional skincare treatments, it is possible to age more gracefully. Join the SkinCenter team as we review best practices for preventative skin care and discuss some of our most effective solutions to help you achieve the younger-looking skin you desire.

Preventative Practices to Cultivate at Home

For starters, it’s important to shield your skin from sun exposure all year long, not just during Westchester’s warmest months. Here are some practical ways to do just that.

Cover Up. Protect your skin with clothing and accessories such as wide-brimmed hats, long sleeves, and pants. Don’t forget gloves to prevent age spots on your hands and sunglasses to reduce fine lines around your eyes.

Wear Sunscreen Daily. Before stepping outdoors, apply sunscreen to all exposed skin areas. Choose a product that offers broad-spectrum protection, has an SPF of 30 or higher, and is water-resistant.

Skip the Tanning Salon. Avoid tanning beds and sun lamps, since their damaging ultraviolet rays can cause your skin to age faster.

It’s also essential to have a solid core of skincare rituals you implement at home. Here are some of the beneficial practices that can help slow the clock when it comes to aging.

Cleanse Twice a Day. Wash your face twice a day with warm water and a mild cleanser to remove dirt and grime without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Avoid using soap and scrubbing your skin harshly.

Make Friends with Moisturizer. As we age, our skin tends to dry out, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Daily moisturizing can trap water in the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance. Incorporate the use of facial moisturizers, body lotions, and lip balms into a recommended skin care routine.

Prioritize Sleep. Never underestimate the power of beauty rest. Adequate sleep allows your body to refresh and renew itself, contributing to healthier skin.

Observe a Nutritious Diet. A healthy diet can promote radiant skin. Incorporate a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats.

Break Up with Smoking. Smoking can lead to a dull and dry complexion, loss of skin firmness, premature lines and wrinkles, and leathery skin. Quitting can prevent these signs of “smoker’s face”.

SkinCenter Treatments for Ageless Skin

At SkinCenter, we’re big fans of collagen-restoring solutions. That’s because as we get older,  time and sun exposure cause the body’s natural collagen levels to decline. This results in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and nose, on the forehead, and framing your smile.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as Restylane Lyft, Juvederm, Resytlane Refyne and Resytlane Defyne naturally stimulate the body’s mechanism for collagen production. These popular injectables are a proactive way to ensure your skin stays smooth and supple well into middle-age and beyond.

The sooner you start tapping into the power of fillers the better, according to the research. If you begin using injectable fillers earlier in life, you’ll likely require fewer treatments to maintain a wrinkle-free complexion for longer periods of time. When you target fine lines and wrinkles early on, you’ll help prevent deeper wrinkles from forming as your body continues to age.

4 More Fantastic SkinCenter Remedies

Dermal fillers aren’t the only offering we recommend for youthful skin makeovers, however. When you book your personalized consultation with a SkinCenter aesthetic nurse or provider, we might also discuss the following treatments.

  1. Microneedling is a procedure that utilizes tiny needles to boost collagen production. It is effective in improving the skin’s texture and reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and enlarged pores.
  2. Facials offer a comprehensive skin care experience. They combine cleansing, exfoliation, and nourishment to address various skin concerns like acne and dullness while promoting a radiant complexion.
  3. Chemical peels in Westchester employ a chemical solution to exfoliate and peel off the skin, unveiling a smoother and less wrinkled layer underneath. It’s a potent treatment for issues like acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
  4. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that exfoliates the skin’s surface using tiny crystals or a diamond-tipped wand. The resulting effect is brighter and smoother skin that complements the effectiveness of other skin care products.
