Seven Ways To Slow Down Your Skin’s Aging Process



Seven Ways To Slow Down Your Skin’s Aging Process

Our skin ages quickly if we don’t take care of it. From undergoing a non-surgical face lift to drinking water, here are seven ways to slow down your skin’s natural aging process:

 Skin Aging

  1. Stop smoking:Cigarettes and other tobacco products add years to your face but take years away from your life. If you smoke, you need to stop; otherwise you will find yourself with wrinkles, lines, and in the worst case, oral or lung cancer.
  2. Undergo skin tightening:Skin tightening involves several procedures that are designed to rejuvenate the skin and remove dead skin cells that are clogging our pores. The procedures involved range from chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing to Botox and dermal fillers to restore collagen and volume lost due to the aging process.
  3. Cut out sugar: Sugar ages us by attaching itself to the proteins in our bloodstream like collagen. When we don’t have ample collagen production, our skin becomes brittle and dry and we look far older than we actually are. To slow down the skin’s natural aging process, remove sugar from your diet.
  4. Get a non-surgical face lift:This is a type of face lift that does not require incisions or the manipulation/removal of tissues and skin. Instead, a non-surgical face lift uses laser energy to reposition the skin of the neck, jowls and brows. When you undergo a non-surgical face lift, you will not have to deal with a lengthy healing process or be left with scars where an incision was made.
  5. Wear sunscreen:No matter how old you are or where you live, you need to wear sunscreen. Sunscreen protects the skin from the harsh UV rays of the sun. Too much sun exposure can lead to severe skin damage and dark spots that can age us way beyond our years. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15.
  6. Drink water:Our bodies are mostly made up of water, which is what helps our skin get that healthy glow. When you do not drink enough water, you are basically setting yourself up for wrinkles and dry skin. To slow down your skin’s aging process, you don’t have to give up coffee or other beverages, but limit any drink that isn’t H2O.
  7. Use medical-grade products:Unfortunately, the skin care products found in pharmacies just won’t cut it. As we age, we need skin care products that not only rejuvenate the skin but allow for collagen production and repair any damage the skin has suffered from sources like pollution. There are different medical-grade skin care products available, and most require a prescription. Your physician, dermatologist or plastic surgeon can recommend and prescribe the right products for you.
