6 Skincare Tips from a Plastic Surgeon
Even with innovative and advanced skin treatments, prevention is often the best way to delay visible ageing. You’re never too young to start taking steps to keep your skin looking young. You can begin losing collagen as soon as your early 20s. A combination of skincare and healthy lifestyle choices can help slow down the signs of ageing and keep you looking younger for longer.
1. Drink Plenty of Water
Regular exercise, a healthy diet, and drinking plenty of water contribute to glowing skin. If your skin isn’t hydrated, it can become dry, flaky, and tight. Your skin can appear duller, and wrinkles are more obvious.
2. Wear SPF!
When UV rays penetrate the skin, it can damage the elastic that keeps your skin tight and firm. As a result, 4. wrinkles can begin to develop prematurely. Sunlight can also cause age spots on the hands, face, and any area exposed to the sun. Wear sunscreen now, and your skin will thank you later.
3. Don’t Forget About Your Neck
Treat your neck as an extension of your face during your skincare routine. The skin on the neck is thin and prone to sun damage and premature ageing. Include these areas in your anti-ageing skincare routine to retain a youthful appearance.
4. Nail Your Skincare Routine
Your skincare routine should address your concerns and completely match your skin type. A good skincare routine can make a world of difference to your skin. Your regular skincare routine should enhance and maintain healthy skin alongside any treatments on top of this.
5. Skincare Should Evolve With Age
Your skincare products and any treatments you have should evolve as you age to serve a specific purpose. For example, Sculptra is ideal for someone in their 60s looking to add volume lost and lift the skin. Whereas someone in their 20s could start using products like vitamin C serum and peptides.
6. Think About Preventative Skin Treatments
Several preventative skin treatments are effective at reducing visible signs of ageing, including anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, and chemical peels. The best treatment depends on your age, skin type, and concerns.
