For most of us, stressing out over the appearance of our skin was somewhat of a right-of-passage we experienced as puberty kicked in and our hormones introduced us to our very first pimple.
Nowadays, we know that stress in itself can have a negative impact on the integrity of our skin. However, as it turns out, a healthy level of concern over your skin’s appearance from a young age is actually a good thing— but that’s only if you begin turning that concern into action… and fast.
If you’re like most of us who want to continue being carded well into our 50s, here’s what you need to do to start taking care of your skin now:
Be Smart About Your Daily Skin Routine
Artificial Intelligence (AI) may be what SnapChat and Instagram use to spice up your reality with funky filters, but it’s real-life beauty intelligence that needs to be put to work in order to ensure your skin stays young and radiant for as long as possible.
You should be cleansing and moisturizing your face regularly according to your unique complexion. We suggest you schedule a free consult at SkinCenter so that you can receive expert advice on the products that will work best for your skin type and texture. Our Westchester medical spa offers a variety of skin care products for every complexion under the sun— and SPF coverage to boot. Rest assured your updated skin routine will be chock full of products that hydrate, tone, refresh and rejuvenate your skin while treating common skin concerns like acne or rosacea.
Support Your Skin’s Natural Collagen Production
Collagen – which helps keep the skin looking young and smooth – is a protein that’s naturally produced by the body. Unfortunately, time and sun exposure cause the body’s natural collagen levels to decline, most commonly resulting in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and nose, on the forehead, and framing your smile.
For over ten years now, doctors have been utilizing moisture-locking, volume-restoring, wrinkle-erasing properties of hyaluronic acid (HA) to naturally stimulate the body’s mechanism for collagen production.
This approach to treating fine lines and wrinkles is an effective way to look your best. What’s more, receiving treatment with HA injectables (such as Restylayne Lyft, Juvederm, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne) before fine lines and wrinkles become more pronounced is what we commonly refer to as “skin pre-juvenation”. It’s a proactive way to ensure your skin stays smooth and supple well into middle-age and beyond.
In fact, evidence shows that people who begin using injectable fillers earlier in life tend to require fewer treatments to maintain their wrinkle-free complexion for longer periods of time. How is this possible? Well, treatment addresses fine lines and wrinkles before they become pronounced and stimulates the body’s natural collagen production mechanism so that fine lines and wrinkles don’t reappear quickly.
