5 Simple Ways to Prevent Premature Aging
Imagine for a moment, that you could fast forward 20 years into the future. Would you be satisfied to discover that ‘the older you’ had underestimated the damaging effects of lifestyle and environment on your skin? Would you regret that your skin was no longer soft and radiant because premature aging had high jacked your youthful appearance?
Okay, don’t panic! The good news is you are not in the future, yet. You can prevent premature aging and we can help. There are 5 small adjustments you can make that will radically change your skin health now and forever.
First, Meet With a Pro
Is your skin dry or oily? Do you have any chronic skin conditions such as acne or eczema? If you try to do-it-yourself, the daunting task of discovering the right product combination can be overwhelming. With over 170 Million search results for ‘skin care’, you could find yourself confused and even mislead. A simple visit to a professional medical spa will actually save you time and money. A licensed aesthetician will create a tailor-made skin care regimen that’s perfect for you.
Don’t Skimp on Skin Care Products
You might be tempted to use less expensive inferior skin care products. However, if you save a few pennies on products now, you may waste a few dollars later when you find yourself replacing products that didn’t work. Don’t forget about ‘the older you’! You wouldn’t want to disappoint yourself in the future with inferior products that didn’t work! At Essentials Wellness, we recommend ZO® Medical by Zein Obadgi MD.
Don’t Forget to Take Your Vitamins!
We’re not talking about the oral kind! A healing Vitamin C topical cream does wonders for those who find themselves dealing with the harmful effects of sun damage or premature aging. Vitamin C can heal dry damaged skin and restore the youthful vitality you don’t want to lose.
Peel Away Aging
Every year there are many things we do religiously like spring cleaning or changing the batteries in our smoke detectors. Not many people know that getting a chemical peel annually can greatly reduce fine lines and wrinkles caused by premature aging. There are many types of chemical peels to choose from. That’s why it is important to visit a trusted, licensed aesthetician for the best results. Chemical peels have also been known to reduce the risk of skin cancer so be sure to add this to your yearly to-do list.
Cover Up, Buttercup
Although sun damage awareness has improved in the last 30 years, many people don’t realize that daily sunscreen protection is necessary even if you are not baking in the sun. Daily exposure to damaging rays can have adverse effects on youthful skin. Don’t regret sun damage later. Prevent it now by applying a high SPF sunscreen for daily protection.
Now that you know what to do, start sooner than later. The sooner you start saving your skin, the more grateful ‘the older you’ will be in 20 years!
