My Skin Looks Old! Is it Too Late?
Remember when your mother used to say, “Don’t forget your sunscreen!” as you rushed out the door with whimsical, carefree disregard? The thought of aging seemed like an impossibility, something so far into the future that it would never catch up, or so we thought.
So now it’s years later and you may be seeing signs of aging when you look in the mirror. You wish you could go back in time and put on that hat or moisturizer. Well, life is too short for regrets! That’s why we want to help you cheat the damaging effects of time with 5 helpful tips.
First, Talk to a Pro
The very first thing you must do if you want to save your skin is stop playing around! It’s time to get serious if you want to look good from this point forward. That means you’ll need the help of a professional to stop the damage in its tracks! Don’t try to do this on your own. A specialist can analyze your skin and prescribe the perfect treatment to reverse the damage.
Get Educated about Chemical Peels
When you see a professional aesthetician, ask which chemical peel is right for you. There are a variety of chemical peels and a good aesthetician will help you choose the best one for your skin type. A chemical peel will promote cell turnover resulting in better tone and texture while reducing fine lines and sun damage.
Microneedling is Your Anti-aging Secret Weapon!
Microneedling is an extremely effective, painless medical spa procedure that will increase skin elasticity and collagen production. Your face and neck will look younger and fresher. It’s even great for acne scars.
Develop Healthy Habits
Once you get your skin health back on track, keep it looking young and fresh with regular facials. A good monthly facial helps with lymphatic drainage and blood flow. It will eliminate blackheads and give your skin an overall glow.
Get on a Professional Skin Care Regimen
The last tip to erase yesterday’s mistakes is a good professional skin care regimen. At Essentials Wellness, we recommend several professional products including ZO® Medical by Zein Obadgi MD. Your aesthetician will tailor products to fit your needs but typically a good skin care regimen will include a cleanser, a moisturizer, a scrub and an anti-aging night crème.
So, dial back the hands of time and restore your skin starting today!
