Slow down the process and look and feel your best with these four anti-aging tips:
Wearing an SPF of 30 or higher EVERY day is essential to keep the skin from obtaining sun damage. Damage from the sun causes the skin to age faster and creates brown spots that surface as we age.
Using an antioxidant, like Green Tea or Vitamin C, is essential to prevent the aging process. Antioxidants fight off free radical damage, like the sun or pollution. Free radicals destroy healthy cells in the skin. Using a product with high levels of antioxidants puts a protective bubble around the healthy cells, keeping them from breaking down from free radicals. This, in turn, slows down the aging process.
Cellular turnover is key when fighting aging. When the skin is exfoliated, new cells are able to be produced faster. This creates healthier, fresher skin. Using Alpha Hydroxy Acids, having chemical peels, using Tretinoin or Retinols are just a few ways to create exfoliation to the skin.
All skin needs to be hydrated. Hydration helps to balance the skin so it not only feels better, but looks better. A skin care provider can help you find the right moisturizer for your skin type.
