How to Prevent Aging Skin
As we all know, there are so many plastic surgery, lasers, and crazy ice chamber options out there these days. But the best way to prevent aging skin is that in itself. Prevention!! The number one recommendation from your Dermatologist and/or Esthetician is always the same, right? 'SUNSCREEN AND SUN PROTECTION!' Now that we have that out of the way and hopefully imbedded in to your brain forever, let's go over a few more tips for age prevention. The second thing I would recommend is HYDRATION! Not only in the intake of water, but in the products used on the skin. Your skin is the last place to receive water from your body. All your organs and other functions take most of it. So as well as drinking plenty of water throughout the day, choose a great hydrating moisturizer that is right for your skin type, of course! And don't be afraid of trying an oil based product (if your skin type/condition allows you to do so!) If you know your type can receive and oil based product, and if you are cleansing properly (which I went through in an earlier post) you should be able to handle it and will leave your face feeling flawless. Third, make sure you EXERCISE 3x or more weekly. In exercising, you are getting blood and lymph moving around your body which is vital for oxygen rich/plump skin! And lastly, always get plenty of SLEEP! It is proven sleep revitalizes skin and makes you look younger! Now it is easier said than done, many of us with high stress lives, make time for yourself and your skin. And remember to always see your Dermatologist once a year, and your Esthetician at least every 3 months.. We say once a month is awesome!!! Good luck, and don't forget your sunscreen!! PROTECT, HYDRATE, EXERCISE, SLEEP!
