Tips to Make Your Skin Look Younger
To maintain youthful, supple, healthy facial skin, requires understanding that your skin requires TLC. You can keep your skin looking younger longer by following some basic tips:
UV Rays are Not Your Friend.
While the San Diego weather is usually sunny and pleasant, you must make a habit of protecting your skin from damaging UV rays. These rays damage the DNA of your skin cells, and will cause your skin to lose its supple, youthful quality, and speed the onset of wrinkles and lines, and is linked to the development of skin cancers. Ensure your facial skin is protected by a moisturizer with sunscreen and avoid long-term sun exposure by wearing a hat if you are boating or spending a day at the beach or pool.
Water, Water, Water.
The Southern California environment is dry. To counteract the constant evaporation of moisture through your skin, it is important that you stay hydrated. Not only will this help keep your skin healthy, drinking plenty of water helps to support your other body systems. Carry water with you wherever you go, and if you don’t enjoy drinking water, herbal teas are an alternative. Sodas, coffee, and caffeinated teas are not hydrating beverages.
A Skin-Nourishing Diet
Your skin responds to your diet. Many foods support skin health, while others do the opposite. To keep your skin looking young and healthy, eat a nutrient-rich diet that includes fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy grains, seafood, avocados, nuts, and healthy proteins. Avoid excessive alcohol consumption, and if you enjoy an alcoholic beverage, always drink a full glass of water after every drink, to help your body flush it out. Smoking affects blood circulation, so should be avoided.
Taking Care of Your Skin for the Long Term
To keep your skin looking healthy and firm requires specific skincare treatments, performed regularly. Some of the most effective treatments that help you maintain youthful skin for years longer include:
- Microdermabrasion: This treatment will address common skin issues such as blackheads, enlarged pores, and age spots. Microdermabrasion removes the top layer of skin cells, which your body is in the process of shedding, and leave your skin looking dull and aged. The debris of dead skin cells can be a contributing factor in developing blemishes, so adding this treatment to your beauty regimen can keep your skin healthy, clean, and strong for the long term.
- Regular facials (every four to six weeks): Your skin is alive and craves specific nutrients. With a custom facial performed on a regular basis, your facial skin is deep-cleaned, hydrated, and nourished.
- Customized medical-grade chemical peels: If your skin is already suffering the effects of sun exposure or age, a medical-grade chemical peel is a high-performance skin treatment that can smooth fine lines and wrinkles, remove sun spots and age spots, and reveal healthy, fresh, youthful skin. Every chemical peel at Laser Cliniqúe is customized to match the needs of the individual client, from mild to the deepest peels for a more thorough facial rejuvenation.
