Sagging skin, sun-spots, and wrinkles, oh my! Though everyone recognizes (and dreads!) the signs of aging skin, few take the necessary steps to prevent it. Maintaining clear, youthful-looking skin is a full-time job and year-round process. Here are a few of the best steps that you can take to help prevent premature signs of aging:
- Quit smoking. By far one of the best things that you can do to improve the texture of your skin is to quit smoking. Smoking causes the collagen in our faces to break down, which leaves skin sagging and less able to bounce back. Quitting smoking today (or refusing to start!) will leave you with better-looking skin – and a healthier body!
- Wear your SPF – even during the winter. There’s a common misconception that SPF (most commonly found in sunscreen) is only necessary during the warm spring and summer seasons. While there’s no doubt that the sun is at its strongest during these seasons, UVA and UVB rays that contribute to aging are still present during the colder months. Don’t skip your sunscreen – even if it’s snowing outside!
- Consider a peel. Serious anti-aging sometimes requires the assistance of a professional. A micropeel (available from most day spas and dermatologist’s offices) deeply penetrates the skin to help deliver active anti-aging ingredients, which can help to instantly reduce the look of scarring, sun-related discoloration, and can leave you with tighter and more youthful-looking skin in as little as a single session.
