There is no shortage of skin care products in the market today. From serums to creams to pills, all these beauty products promise the world to us. Unfortunately, most of these products fall short of what they promise, so it all just turns out to be a complete waste of money. Everyone wants to have beautiful skin and it's so sad that a lot of women, as well as men fall into the marketing ploys of these beauty companies. Unknown to many, there is no single beauty product in the market that can miraculously make our skin beautiful in seven days. To achieve beautiful skin, we must take care of the five basic needs of our skin. Here are some of them.
MOISTURIZE It is very important to moisturize our skin to keep our skin healthy and beautiful. Besides, did you know that our skin is composed of sixty to seventy percent water? We must maintain this hydration percentage or else our skin will get dry which will just pave the way for more skin problems. Regularly apply moisturizer after shower. For people who sleep with air-conditioner, make sure that you apply a layer of moisturizer as the cold air generated by the air-conditioner is dry.
NUTRITION What you put inside your body will definitely reflect on the outside. So if you drink a lot of alcohol, if you smoke and eat a lot of junk, then it will definitely be reflected on your skin. The key to looking beautiful outside is what you put on the inside. Eat well, take skin friendly supplements and adapt healthy lifestyle habits to achieve beautiful skin. Consume a variety of bright-colored vegetables to benefit a wide range of vitamins and anti-oxidants.
TREATMENTS Our skin slows down its skin renewal process once we hit mid-thirties and the quality of our skin declines slowly. Certain medical laser treatments such as Dual Yellow Laser and Clear & Brilliant Laser are effective anti-aging treatments that rejuvenate the skin and reduce appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Advanced technology in medical aesthetics allows doctors to administer an age-reversal treatment to reverse signs of aging. Rejuran Healer treatment is a dermal filler treatment that contains DNA extract obtained from salmon. Salmon DNA has been used by medical doctors to expedite the healing process for people suffering from diabetic foot ulcers.
SUN PROTECTION The sun's UV rays is the primary culprit of premature skin aging. It damages the skin cells at a cellular level, making our skin age faster than it's supposed to be. To prevent this, we must always stay protected by wearing sunscreen every day, no matter what the weather may be. Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect yourself from both UVA and UVB rays.
MAINTAIN COLLAGEN LEVELS Collagen is the one responsible in keeping our skin plump and youthful. Unfortunately, as we age, our collagen production decreases which causes our skin to look sallow over time. More experienced doctors are using collagen dermal fillers such as Ellanse and Radiesse to add volume to deficient areas and stimulate collagen growth in the injected areas to achieve a youthful, longer-lasting result.
Keep your skin looking youthful and healthy by indulging in regular anti-aging skin care treatments.
