Aging Through The Years: Anti-Aging Tips
Whether you like it or not, aging is inevitable, so you shouldn’t spend too much time stressing over it. Instead, you should learn more about the aging process, and what you can do to minimize issues as they come up. Check out some of our anti-aging tips below:
Adolescence until your 20s
Adolescence is a troubled time for many of us, beyond just skin problems – though uncontrolled acne doesn’t make the experience any easier. Besides acne, most of us have the best skin of our lives between adolescence and our late 20s. Even though you might not need a specialized skin care regimen to have great skin at this point, implementing one early will prevent future damage down the road. Sunglasses and sunscreen should be an everyday practice. This will prevent fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin and other signs of sun damage.
During your 30s
Many of our earliest signs of aging begin during the 30s. Fine lines around the eyes are common, and the skin underneath your eyes may become puffy in the early mornings. To fight these early signs of aging, you should supercharge your skin care regimen. You should cleanse your face in the morning and at night, and add a daily eye cream and moisturizer to your routine. Skin care products that contain antioxidants like green tea or vitamin C are a great anti-aging preventative.
During the mid-to-late 30s, many men and women start to consider non-invasive cosmetic procedures, such as Dysport, Botox injections or non-ablative laser treatments. By treating these signs of aging early on, natural aging will appear more subtle.
During your 40s, 50s and Beyond
Signs of aging become more prominent during the 40s and 50s, especially around the mouth and eyes. Fine lines and wrinkles become folds on the skin. Surgical procedures such as a facelift or a brow lift can target deep wrinkles or folds on your face and neck regions. More invasive laser treatments, such as Ultrapulse CO2 laser can target more significant facial aging.
Skin all over the body begins to lose some of its elasticity as we age, which means that if you lose weight, your skin may not rebound like it once did. Body contouring procedures, such as a tummy tuck can help remove excess skin and tone your body after shedding weight.
