Any skincare enthusiast knows the importance of protecting facial skin from damaging elements such as the wind, cold, and sun. But aging is unavoidable, so it’s helpful to know what changes to expect and address to maintain healthy skin.
There are endless health reasons to ditch the cigarettes, but those who care about the health of their skin have even more reasons to kick the habit. Smoking results in decreased blood flow to the face, an influx of damaging toxic chemicals, and even wrinkles around the mouth from the actual act of smoking. In order to avoid the droopy skin associated with smokers, say goodbye to tobacco.
Protect from the Sun
Although the sun delivers much-needed vitamin D, it can also exacerbate and hasten visible signs of aging. To avoid this, apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, and reapply often, depending on the amount of sun exposure one gets.
Use Gentle Cleansers
After wearing makeup or sweating, it can be tempting to use harsh, damaging cleansers to scrub the day away. In addition to irritating the skin, this can also accelerate aging by stripping the skin of natural oils that keep it young. Washing isn’t optional, but stick to gentle cleansers and water.
Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
Eating greasy, fat-laden food can lead to patchy skin, acne, and premature signs of aging. To avoid this, eat a balanced diet of mostly unprocessed foods, avoiding too much grease and oil. Be sure to also reduce excessive stress with spa days or other facial treatments, as worry lines can be exacerbated by anxiety.
Consider Anti-Aging Treatments
Even those with the best diets and skincare routines will experience the physical signs of aging at one point or another. When that time comes, consider cosmetic procedures that can help to rejuvenate the skin, such as microneedling, laser resurfacing, or injectables. Most of these treatments typically require little to no downtime and can help make the face look more plump and youthful.
Even the best preventative techniques can’t completely stave off wrinkles and other signs of aging. To address these issues with spa days or skin treatments, come to Jimenez Chiropractic Med-Spa.
