Wrinkles, face lines, laugh lines, droopy eyelids, and saggy skin, are all signs of aging. This natural phenomenon gets as real as it progresses to the next age. To continue looking fresh, young, and attractive, typically involves keeping the aging process at bay.
While there is no way to freeze the aging process entirely, there continue to be some treatments in Dubai and other prominent cosmetic hubs that promise a significant change. They target the most visible areas around the eyes, lips, age spots, and even saggy skin. However, all of these efforts are simply temporary, and can only slow down the extrinsic aging process.
Regardless of the procedure incorporated, the results do not last forever. For instance, opting for Botox in Dubai produces results that last temporarily. Gradually, wrinkles and fine lines start appearing on the skin, bringing you back to square one.
Healthy Habits that Help Turn the Clock Back
Here is a look at some of the aspects in which the aging process of the skin can be slowed down. Let’s take a look at them in detail:
Wear a Minimum SPF of 30
Extensive skin exposure can do great harm to your skin. Wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines are just some of the known outcomes. Yet, there are many more! Wearing sunscreen, with an SPF of at least 30 is an important part of your anti-aging skincare routine.
Many face moisturizers contain sunscreen and can be applied before applying makeup for the day. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to any other parts of your body that will be exposed to sunlight. In all, make sure to stay safe from hazardous UV radiation.
When you smoke, your skin ages quickly and prematurely. Smokers have more wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin around their eyes, as well as a dull or sallow complexion.
Tobacco contains nicotine, which constricts blood vessels in your skin, preventing oxygen and critical nutrients from reaching your skin. The squinting caused by the smoke, as well as the pursing of the lips around the cigarettes, contribute to the formation of more face wrinkles.
Maintain a Healthy, and Balanced Diet
Your food has a direct effect on how quickly your skin ages. As your skin heals and regenerates skin cells, it needs the necessary nutrients to do so. Reduce your intake of refined sugars, simple carbs, and harmful fats.
Consuming a variety of foods that are high in antioxidants (such as Vitamin C and E), contains Vitamin A and B vitamins and gives adequate nutrients for the rest of your body. Spinach and leafy green vegetables, tomatoes, almonds, fatty fish, berries, beans/peas/lentils deliver impressive magic. Orange and yellow fruits and vegetables like apricots and carrots are all anti-aging foods for skin health.
Exercise and Burn the Stubborn Fat and Calories
For more young skin, dermatologists suggest exercising most days of the week. Exercise increases circulation and strengthens the immune system. Increased blood flow through your body aids in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to your skin as well as the removal of cellular waste materials.
Exercise has also been proven to lower stress, which in turn can benefit skin diseases such as eczema and acne.
Cleanse, Exfoliate, and Moisturize
This face wash routine is quick and effective. A gentle cleanser eliminates the damaging bacteria, oils, and dirt from the skin. Next up, is the exfoliator. It removes dead skin, improves blood circulation in the skin, and preps the skin before using skin products. Lastly, moisturize your skin to keep the water trapped in the skin and make you look youthful. More so, the incorporation of wrinkle-fighting products like Vitamin C and E, Hyaluronic acid, and lactic acid, also reduces the signs of aging.
Get a Restful Sleep
While you are sleeping, your body rests and heals itself. During sleep, hormone levels are balanced, your immune system is invigorated, and tissue repair and muscle growth occur. All of these factors contribute to your skin’s ability to recover from the wear and tear of the day and prepare for the stress of the next. Prioritize getting a good night’s sleep.
Consistency is the key to achieving any milestone. Still, many lose track of the ups and downs of life. For them, opting for invasive and non-invasive surgical procedures remains a viable option. Undergoing fat elimination processes, and facelifts, can give anti-aging touch-ups and contribute to mental and physical well-being. Similarly, visiting a breast augmentation clinic in Dubai is a viable option for those who develop saggy, loose skin due to the natural aging process.
Even then, it is essential to follow the above skincare and healthy lifestyle practices to achieve maximum results following any treatment.
