Aging is an inevitable part of living a good life and growing older. How we age is something that we do have some control over. Here are three MUST DO things in order to help yourself look good now and age well from here on.
1. Products. There are a lot of products on the market and many promise to work wonders. However one product has stood the test of time and really delivers, that is retinoic acid. It is great for aging and also good for acne. This should be part of a night-time regimen and sunscreen with SPF should be part of any daytime regimen.
2. Procedure. A microdermabrasion/chemical peel series. These treatments remove the outermost portion of skin and promote collagen re-growth. One treatment may help some, but if you can commit yourself to monthly treatments for six months, the results are phenomenal. A laser resurfacing would be the treatment of choice for someone with skin damage and can give an even more dramatic result.
3. Dermal Filler. It is amazing how softening the nasolabial fold makes everyone look younger. The nasolabial fold is located at the laugh lines below the nose and extending down. It forms a parenthesis around your cheek/mid face area. Fillers, which are products that fill in areas where there is a crease or fold, will last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending upon which product you use. It is a subtle difference that you will definitely notice, but others will only notice that you look younger, more vibrant. Some even stimulate your body to make more collagen.
It is important that we begin now to have a good regimen for skin care that will keep us looking our personal best!
