It happens to everyone eventually. One day you’re celebrating your 21st birthday and the reality of aging skin seems light years away. In what seems like no time at all, 20 years have passed and you look in the mirror one day wonder where those lines and wrinkles came from! The good news is that with today’s technology, you can look a full 10 years younger, even if you can’t stop the hands of time.
Looking Younger Starts with the Right Skin Care System
Moisturizers and creams that you can buy at the drugstore only work for so long. It might feel good to put them on your skin, but that seems to be the only benefit after a while. You eventually feel frustrated to watch your skin age before your eyes. Before the progression goes any further, consider the benefits of a prescription skin care system like Obagi. This product reduces wrinkles, age spots, sagging under the eyes, and other obvious issues of skin aging. It can also stop common skin aging problems before they start.
Wear Sunscreen Every Day
It’s easy to forget to apply sunscreen when you leave the house, especially when temperatures are cooler. However, this practice is one of the most important things you can do for the health of your skin. It doesn’t have to be a hot and sunny day for you to sustain sun damage. Not only does prolonged sun exposure without the protection of sunscreen increase your risk of skin cancer, it also has a dramatic aging effect on the skin.
Your Eyebrow Shape is More Important Than You Realize
It can be frustrating to have people say that you look tired or ask why you’re sad when you’re really neither of these things. The sagging under your eyes and droopy eyelids is more than likely a normal sign of aging. Having a professional shape your eyebrows so they are arched slightly and pointing towards your temples has a natural lifting effect that also helps you look younger.
Non-Surgical Procedures to Shave Off a Decade
You don’t have to go under the knife to look younger than you really are. A few sessions with the PicoSure® laser could be all you need. The light energy from the laser reaches your deepest skin layers stimulating collagen production and helping to smooth out wrinkles, crows feet, and much more.
Dermal fillers, injectables, and chemical peels are additional anti-aging treatments that you can complete in as little as one session on an outpatient basis. Each procedure offers different types of benefits to give you the younger looking skin that you desire.
With a little dedication and a proactive approach, there’s no reason you can’t look as young as you feel. Or at least 10 years younger.
