Anti-Aging Q & A
What can I do to keep my skin looking younger?
As you get older, there are several anti-aging skin care tips that can help you retain your youthful appearance. You’ve heard it before, but it’s worth mentioning again: Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays goes a long way. The sun makes your skin age more rapidly through a process called photoaging.
When you protect your skin from the sun, you can help slow down the development of lines, wrinkles, and sun spots. Always wear sunscreen, stay in the shade, and try to avoid being outside when the sun is its strongest, usually between the hours of 10am and 2pm.
Other ways to keep your skin looking younger include cultivating these habits:
- Apply daily moisturizer
- Wash your face twice a day
- Eat a healthy diet
- Don’t smoke
- Get enough sleep
- Avoid indoor tanning beds
- Manage stress
- Drink enough water
- Cut back on alcohol
Developing healthy lifestyle habits like these can help prevent your skin from looking older.
What anti-aging treatments can help me look younger?
A good skin care routine can go a long way in keeping your skin clear and minimizing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. Anti-aging treatments like facials and chemical peels can address specific concerns. Facials can help rejuvenate tired, dull skin by removing the outermost layer and improving blood flow to your skin.
Chemical peels stimulate and accelerate your skin’s exfoliation process by removing the top layer of skin and letting a newer, younger layer shine through. New skin is often tighter, smoother, and has less discoloration and uneven skin tone than the older layers of your skin. Chemical peels help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, too.
When should I begin anti-aging treatments?
Your skin begins to lose its natural elasticity and suppleness as early as your late 20s or early 30s. You lose skin volume each year as your body produces less collagen and elastin and your skin begins to sag. Fine lines and wrinkles appear around your eyes, nose, and mouth, and across your forehead.
Everyone ages at a different pace, but if these early signs of aging bother you, you can begin anti-aging treatments as soon as you decide you want to take action against the natural aging process. The team at Womens Health Care, PC, can design an anti-aging treatment plan based on your skin concerns.
