Five Best Anti-Aging Tips From A Dermatologist

In our youth, our skin is at its prime — it is  glowy and amazing. One does not even have to do anything special to make it like that. But as the time passes, things change. The skin starts looking old and gradually changes depending on our lifestyle. Although it is impossible to control factors like years, hormone levels, or genetics, it is possible to influence external factors to make the skin look younger and age slower.

Don’t feel desperate when you notice wrinkles, brown marks, or smile lines. It is never too late to take good care of your skin and make it look beautiful!

Here are five best tips from your dermatologist that will help you retain an amazing skin for a long time to come.

 Eat healthy

Beauty starts from the inside — nutrients come to your skin from the food you eat every day. Don’t forget that the skin is your body’s largest organ! Everything you eat or drink directly affects your skin and its appearance. It is also highly important to have a specific intake of vitamin D or make sure to spend at least 30 minutes in the sunlight every day. 

Secondly, take omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in adequate proportions. These are found in fish, olive oil, flaxseed oil, etc. You can take capsules, too. Thirdly, drink enough water! You should avoid sweetened juices and replace them with water. Decrease the intake of processed food and sugar since they promote inflammation processes, and thus prevent a formation of new dermal cells.

 Reduce your exposure to the sun

Dermatologists agree that UV exposure is the first skin-ager. Strong sunlight damages elastin and collagen which causes drooping, wrinkles, and lost jawline. Your skin can also lose color and become rough. In the end, UV rays cause skin cancers which is the most dangerous risk of sun exposure. Still, the best advice is to stay away from the sun from 11am to 4pm since this is the time when the rays have the strongest intensity. Don’t forget to buy a high-quality suncream with the appropriate UV factor.

 Create a good morning-night routine

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to spend hundreds of dollars – the most important thing is your time. Your skin requires care and time. Every night, your skin regenerates, so you should use this time to help it in the process. Also, don’t forget to remove your makeup before you go to bed. This might be an old rule, but it is essential for your skin. If you don’t remove your makeup, your skin may get damaged since air cannot properly penetrate your skin. Apply a night moisturizer and sleep on a clean pillow (you should wash pillows every week). Buy effective products best-suited for your skin — it is important to retain quality! Try your best to find the right products for your skin type even though it may take time to find the right one. You can also ask for professional help.

 Undertake cosmetic procedures which help your skin regenerate

Our dermatologists can give us many good treatments. Most of these improve skin health and regenerate dermal cells. Although they can’t turn back the time, they surely may help your skin maintain its freshness and healthy look.

For example, you can try out peels in many different ways. They’re an amazing way to improve your skin health and make the skin look brighter. You can try simple peels and massages first. A chemical peel is a deeper process — which can also be painful — that stimulates collagen to grow.

 Use derivate compounds of vitamin A-retinoid

This is an amazing thing for your skin! Retinoids are the best type of cream that can help you repair the aging process. Retinoids boost collagen production, stimulate blood vessels, unclog pores, and much more. If you start using retinoids, you will see results within a month or two — be sure of this. Apply retinoid products on the clean face to ensure they work best. The best time to do this is at night. Don’t forget to follow the instructions of use.

If you follow the above directions, your skin will look shiny and bright! It is worth your time to check them out and give them a try — there is nothing to lose!
