We barely think about how our skin will look once we start aging when we are in our 20s or 30s. As much as we think our face and our skin will remain the same, the harsh truth here is that our skin changes as we age. The fibers that give our complexions a firm, smooth appearance become weak creating a sagging and wrinkled texture. The collagen production slows down and therefore the elasticity of youthful skin starts to fade as other factors come into play.
The most common visible changes that you might face are loss of moisture, which can leave your skin dry or with visible signs of aging like wrinkles, and dark spots. You can’t predict which of these will strike first. Either way, the next best thing that you can do is to start taking care of your complexion right now.
You can start by adopting a daily skincare routine that will give you younger-looking skin in the long run. Vitamin A and C are also essential when speaking of youthful appearances. You can also try microneedling for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars of the face and body. This process is very efficient in triggering new collagen and remodeling scar tissue while maintaining a firm skin structure.
Moisturize night and day
Whether you’ve got a combination, dry, oily, sensitive skin, or something in between, you should try not to skip out on applying moisturizer. Applying moisture every day will make you look younger and maintain the appearance of youthful skin. Every morning and night after cleansing, slather on moisturizer while your face remains damp to assist in locking in the moisture.
Speaking of moisturizer, make sure you find the one that’s right for your skin type’s unique needs. Usually, the recommendations from the dermatologist are moisturizers with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to provide long-lasting hydration. And as you already know, this goes hand-in-hand with the appearance of youthful-looking skin.
Vitamin C for a youthful look
Dermatologists and other experts in the beauty industry are raving about vitamin C for its anti-aging properties as it can improve the look and texture of your skin.
Vitamin C is one among three antioxidants proven to decrease the sun’s harmful effect on the skin and stop future damage. It also encourages collagen production to emphasize skin elasticity and reduce the looks of fine lines and wrinkles. What’s more, this miracle antioxidant targets stubborn skin discoloration and reduces the looks of hyperpigmentation, redness, and undereye circles.
One of the simplest ways to feature vitamin C in your skincare routine is with a serum. After cleansing and toning, spread a pea-sized amount of vitamin C serum on your face and let it get soaked up for a couple of minutes before following up with moisturizer and makeup. You will see its magic working on you in no time.
Dermal fillers are a better option than going under the knife
Dermal fillers are anti-aging injectables that fill in wrinkles and depressions, replenishing lost volume to smooth your skin and promote a good complexion. They usually use mucopolysaccharide, a sugar naturally found within the body, to melt facial wrinkles and restore volume.
Hyaluronic acid fillers look the most natural and accommodate very nicely to the contour of a patient’s face.
When injected into the skin, the mucopolysaccharide swells and causes a smoothing, filling effect where lost volume must be restored. It is important to seek out an experienced injector who understands facial anatomy and may offer you the natural results you would like. When you start to notice the anti-aging effect wearing off, it’s time to schedule a touchup treatment.
Microneedling or collagen induction therapy
As the name suggests, microneedling involves pricking the skin with tiny needles to make the skin look younger. The purpose of microneedling is to make microscopic channels for anti-aging products, like collagen or vitamin C, to seep through and penetrate the deep layers of the skin.
When performed in a dermatologist’s office, the doctor will apply serum to your face and chest before moving a needling device over the treatment area, allowing deep penetration. Even if no serum is employed, the small injuries caused by the needles promote collagen production and create elasticity.
The anti-aging results of microneedling are most visible after four to five treatments. The treatment is especially effective at targeting large pores, acne scars, necklines, and wrinkles around the mouth.
We hope all of the above was useful and beneficial for you.
As we mentioned earlier you can start with adopting a daily skincare routine that will give you younger-looking skin in the long run. Finding the right skincare routine is not an easy process but with the advice that we summed up, you’ll have a good starting point.
