Are you concerned with aging gracefully?
Do you find yourself looking in the mirror, feeling grateful for the many wonderful things you’ve experienced over the years - but desiring the skin of your 20’s?
While there are many products and skin and treatments that can help you improve the current condition of your skin, to truly get incredible results you must think from the inside out.
Couple your professional skincare treatments with a consistent home care regimen and specific lifestyle changes and you’ll find yourself glowing!
Treating hundreds of patients for various skin conditions over the years, I’ve seen it all. I’ve seen what works, what doesn’t, and even conquered my own personal quest to achieve beautiful skin from the inside out.
I’ve consolidated some of the critical things I’ve seen over the years in these 7 tips for visibly resetting your skin’s health clock, one step at a time. Enjoy!
7 Anti-Aging Tips To Reset Your Skin’s Health Clock
I understand making lifestyle changes can be difficult, and often takes time. But the results are well worth the effort. Not only will your skin look gorgeous, you’ll feel incredible. I’ve compiled my top tips for creating regular habits and daily routines that will help your skin look younger over the years.
1. Avoid deliberate sun exposure and tanning
This is my number one rule for everyone. Each time you skin is exposed to the sun, it causes free radical damage to form in the skin.
These destructive, wild, oxygen-based molecules cause a cascade of biochemical reactions to the skin, eventually causing the breakdown of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid which are vital substances that keep your skin firm, unwrinkled, and young looking.
2. Apply a physical sunscreen every single day.
Realistically, none of us can completely avoid the sun (and I don’t recommend that anyways!) Most sun damage that affects the skin occurs from the day-to-day cumulative ambient exposure of walking to the mailbox or sitting by a window.
Apply a sunscreen that contains a broad spectrum SPF 30 or higher. Broad spectrum is important! It means the sunscreen will help prevent and protect you from burning rays, aging rays, and skin cancer causing rays. This is an important step you don’t want to skip in your morning routine.
3. Do not smoke.
There is no cream or treatment that can undo the damage done by cigarettes. It’s bad for your health and your skin, there’s just no way around it.
4. Wear topical antioxidants daily.
Antioxidants can neutralize the free radical cascade of reactions that lead to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. A combination of antioxidants is best, as different antioxidants have unique radical neutralizing abilities.
I recommend SkinBetter Science Alto Defense Serum. This super serum achieves the ultimate antioxidant support system through a proprietary blend of 19 antioxidants designed to dynamically enhance the skin's natural free radical defenses. Plus, it’s scientifically proven to improve redness, skin tone, luminosity and overall appearance of the skin.
5. Use skincare products that contain an ingredient called ceramides.
This powerful ingredient helps enhance and repair the skin's barrier function to help retain moisture and fill gaps between epidermal cells. Skin with a healthier barrier function is smoother, firmer, and less likely to become red and irritated.
I recommend SkinBetter Science Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment. This is a brand new product that uses a triple action formula to rebalance a compromised barrier and bring back moisture to the skin.
6. Use a product with alpha hydroxy acids and retinol.
Both ingredients have multiple benefits for anti aging and prevention of visible aging. They help cellular renewal, resulting in younger looking, plumper skin that holds moisture.
I recommend SkinBetter Science Alpharet because it’s the first of its kind to incorporate both Alpha Hydroxy acids and retinol in one product. It will improve lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture without irritating the skin like many other products on the market do.
7. Use peptides.
This will help in the boost of collagen in the skin and reduce the breakdown of this supportive fiber.
Peptides are "signal" molecules" that can have many positive effects on the skin, including improved smoothness, improved elasticity, and more even tone. Some peptides can reduce inflammation and puffiness.
I recommend SkinBetter Science Interfuse Face and Neck Treatment Cream because it uses a blend of peptides to help bring back the look of firmness to the skin. This special blend of peptides targets five types of collagen, all critical to skin density.
Use these tips to enhance (or start) your regular anti-aging skin care routine in addition to regular professional treatments.
If you stay the course, in a few months you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the beautiful transformation your skin will have made.
Don’t feel discouraged if you aren’t using these tips in your current routine. If you start today, you’ll still reap the benefits for your skin over time! Accelerate the results when you pair these 7 anti-aging skin care steps with a professional-grade skin care treatment.
