Everyone is always asking "What should I be doing to help slow down or reverse the signs of aging?" First let's understand how the skin ages and then I'll share some tips on what we can do to slow it down.
Intrinsic aging is the natural process of skin aging due to genetics and all internal influences. Extrinsic aging on the other hand, is a result of lifestyle and environmental factors. Environmental factors that magnify intrinsic ageing are sun exposure, repetitive facial expressions, gravity, sleeping positions and smoking.
Here's some Anti-aging tips
Avoid sun exposure
Be mindful about wearing an SPF daily because the sun is the #1 reason for premature aging. UVA rays are the rays that cause tanning as well as wrinkles and other signs of premature aging. While the UVB rays cause sunburns and skin cancer. A good item to pair with your SPF in the morning is a Vitamin C serum. Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals and helps shield your skin from damage, keeping your complexion healthy and vibrant.

Try sleeping on your back to prevent crepes between the breasts, marionette lines around the mouth and wrinkles around the eyes. Sleeping on the side is like ironing wrinkles into the skin.
Live A Healthy Life Style
By eating foods high in nutritional value and antioxidants, getting a good nights sleep. Don't smoke... not only is it bad for you but also causes premature aging.

There are many treatment options to consider for slowing down or even reversing premature aging. Botox can smooth out the wrinkles or even prevent fine lines by relaxing the muscles that cause expression lines. Microneedling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy stimulates the body's natural production of collagen and enhances a youthful glow. It is ideal for the treatment of acne and surgical scars, stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines, lax skin, large pores, sun damage, and uneven skin texture. Microcurrent Facials and devices like NuFace is known to be the most effective non-surgical method to take years off the face. These devices are used for facial contouring, toning and firming of aging skin. Chemical Peels improve the appearance of aging skin by using a naturally derived chemical solution to remove the outer layer of skin, replacing it with new healthy skin. Medical facials using cosmeceutical skin care products containing high percentages of active ingredients, including LED treatments work wonders in restoring the skin's firmness and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Getting these facials regularly can help to keep your skin looking fresh, supple, smooth and young.
