Did you know that the anti-aging cosmetics market is projected to reach $60.2B by 2026?
The numbers might be high, but it’s not surprising. After all, who wouldn’t want to keep their skin looking fresh, glowy, and youthful for as long as possible?
If you’re looking to start your skincare journey or upgrade your routine, you’re in the right place. Continue to read to find the treatments, tools, and beauty products you need to enhance your skin’s youthful appearance.
Use Sunscreen Every Day
Did you know that your body makes vitamin D from cholesterol when exposed to sunlight?
While we all need the vitamin D to keep our muscles, bones, and teeth healthy, spending a day at the beach naturally tanning is not the healthiest choice. Instead, it will increase your chances of facing photoaging and skin cancer.
UVA can interfere with collagen, making it break down at a higher rate. Meanwhile, UVB light destroys the skin’s outer layer and might even cause precancerous cells to form.
So, to avoid premature aging and maintain skin health, wear your sun cream. If you’re into beauty products, you can wear your SPF underneath your makeup or opt for a tinted sunscreen.
Get Artisan Sculpting
As we get older, we produce less collagen, so we lose skin elasticity. Yet, with an Artisan sculpting treatment, we can help ourselves skin-tightening-wise. Indeed, you’ll achieve a more youthful appearance.
This treatment is ideal if you want tighter skin and a more sculpted body or face. Plus, it requires no downtime, so you can get on with your life as soon as a session is over.
Eat Nutritious Foods and Avoid Ultra-Processed Ones
Research shows a diet packed with ultra-processed foods can accelerate your cells’ aging process
Think about it: these products contain trans fats and high levels of hydrogenated oils. So, eating them will make you more prone to inflammation, which may lead to the breakdown and aging of your cells.
Also, just like your gut health, your skin requires nutrients. As the human body can’t produce its own Vitamin C, we have to compensate by eating (or drinking) foods and juices that contain this substance.
Vitamin C is crucial to maintaining skin health. Plus, it can give us antioxidant protection against UV-provoked photodamage. As if it wasn’t enough, it induces more collagen production and makes our skin feel and look healthy.
Remember that you also need other vitamins and nutrients to counteract other aging factors. Don’t know what foods have anti-aging properties? Try whole-grain, avocados, nuts, berries, red bell pepper, watercress, broccoli, and sweet potatoes.
In the end, it’s best to stick to nutritious products and avoid things such as sodas, margarine, frozen dinners, alcohol, and so on. It’s the price you pay for healthier, young-looking skin.
Adopt Strategies to Stay Zen
It’s impossible to avoid stress (unless you’re a monk and meditate constantly). But chronic and prolonged stress can negatively affect the body, even contributing to premature aging.
When you’re stressed, your body releases cortisol (the stress hormone). High cortisol levels mean more sebum (oil), which can lead to irritation, clogged pores, and acne.
Do you think that’s all? It also magnifies other skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.
Ultimately, stress can slow down your body’s natural processes and negatively affect your immune system. Unfortunately, when you’re dealing with high cortisol levels, wrinkles are more likely to appear. So, try to find ways to stay zen (you can listen to relaxing music, play an instrument, go for a run, practice yoga, or even cuddle your pet) to achieve healthier skin.
Use Anti-Aging Skin Products
Anti-aging skincare products can be a great addition to your self-care routine. They help reduce visible signs of skin aging like fine lines, dark spots, wrinkles, and leathery skin. Whether you want to reduce signs of aging or prevent them from appearing, it doesn’t matter: there is something for you.
Experts claim that if you’re in your 20s, it’s time to start thinking about your skin. It makes sense: it’s not worth waiting for skin problems to arise or changes to occur to adopt a skincare routine. Find products compatible with your skin type and take care of yourself!
Book an Anti-Aging Facial Session
Book an anti-aging facial treatment (even if once a month) to detoxify your skin to look more glowy. There are custom facials that can cater to your skin goals (look more plump, clear, radiant, and so on).
It will be more than just a luxurious experience: it will be a moment for you to relax and feel good. So, give it a go!
Learn Some Anti-Aging Techniques
During a microneedling session, a professional will use a handheld device to create microscopic punctures in the skin.
These tiny punctures in the skin (pretty much microscopic wounds) trigger the body’s healing response. So, it leads to boosted elastin, collagen, and circulation. All are vital aspects when it comes to anti-aging.
So, book an appointment and watch your skin glow.
