Innovative Skin Care for Long-Term Beauty
- Posted on: Jun 15 2018
Modern medicine has made it possible for people live longer, healthier lives. The saying “50 is the new 30” has a lot of merit for both men and women, and it extends beyond how we feel into how we look. We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with adults of all ages on maintaining healthy, vibrant skin as they go through the stages of life. Because the skin is affected by internal and external factors, it is best maintained with a combination of healthy habits. Here, we want to discuss a few habits that may prematurely age the skin, and one habit – your skin care – that can promote lasting resilience.
First, Do No Harm
The best way to manage aging skin is to avoid the premature development of lines and wrinkles. The skin relies on good, strong collagen in order to stay smooth and firm. As soon as collagen starts to break down, we can see clear indications for skin laxity, crepiness, and deflation. Now, there isn’t a whole lot we can do to stop the natural decline in collagen production as we age. We can, however, limit the degradation of existing collagen by instilling good habits like:
- Maintain a one-drink maximum. Studies show that one glass of wine or mild alcoholic beverage can actually be good. More than that, though, and you’re facing dehydration, which can ultimately affect your skin.
- Get some shut-eye. We have come to realize how very little value there is in burning the candle at both ends. Sleep is an essential building block for health and beauty. When you sleep, your DNA is repairing and cells are regenerating. Sleep also controls cortisol, the stress-chemical that degrades collagen.
- Use sunscreen. Broad spectrum sunscreen is the best way to avoid collagen deterioration caused by UV damage.
- Eat your veggies. Fresh fruits and vegetables contain the anti-oxidants that the body needs to fight free radicals that accelerate biological aging.
