As we enter a new year, we often make resolutions to live a healthier lifestyle. At our office, we fully believe looking and feeling beautiful begins from within. However, there are a few simple resolutions you can start now to ensure your outward appearance matches your inner youthful spirit.
- Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen.
Protecting your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun is the cornerstone of an anti-aging regimen. We recommend using a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 35 and reapplying regularly. Don’t forget to protect your hands, neck, and chest, as these areas can also reveal age. The new formulations of sunscreen make application easy and are often combined with other products to simplify your morning routine. We particularly love the Intellishade tinted sunscreen which can work double duty as a foundation, as well.
- Use a wrinkle relaxer.
Botox and Dysport injections work to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles. When patients have these treatments regularly, the fine lines caused by the movements of the facial muscles never have a chance to form. Patients commonly think they need to start these procedures after they develop fine lines. In reality, treating with these products before signs of age start to develop will ensure those pesky lines and wrinkles never have a chance to form in the first place. Consider it your pre-emptive strike against wrinkles!
- Find YOUR skincare regimen.
We all have unique skin and different skin care needs. Finding the products that work best for your skin care concerns, but also fit in to your lifestyle, is key. We offer customized consultations with our experienced medical aestheticians to help develop the ideal product regimen for your skin type.
Looking and feeling young begins with just a few small steps. While we might not yet have discovered the fountain of youth, resolving to follow these three tips will certainly make people question your secrets for maintaining your youthful glow.
