We all experience change as time passes and the treatments our clinic offers for signs of skin ageing will help. Taking steps to reduce the thinner, or drier skin which can come with age still makes sense.
Changes in lifestyle are often the key, rather than one off actions, to offer long term protection against a process which is itself gradual. Often just a small alteration in habits, which make a substantial difference.
The Core Steps
Safeguard yourself from the sun which plays a critical role in skin ageing. Protective clothing and sunglasses are important, along with using a good quality sunscreen, which includes protection against UVA and UVB rays.
Avoid tanning beds and booths as they emit the same harmful rays as the sun. In general more concentrated and a notable cause of skin cancer, alongside wrinkles, age spots and other signs of ageing.
Apply facial moisturiser daily to keep your skin hydrated and relaxed. The basis of good cosmetic care, giving your skin a more youthful look and available in forms which are pleasantly neutral.
Treat all parts of your skin gently including areas which are not often exposed. Not washing your face too often will help, alongside using hypoallergenic (non irritating) products on all areas of your body.
Avoid patterns of facial movement through frowning, squinting, or clenching your teeth. They do bring wrinkles over time and in excessive cases, are able to alter the underlying tissue, or muscle structure.
Together with useful practical changes, remember that your skin is part of and a reflection of your health. Exercise will improve circulation and your immune system, a balanced diet including fresh fruit, or vegetables is equally valuable.
Your skin really does mirror the way your entire body is performing. A good reason not to smoke, or consume excess alchohol and a wider medical indicator.
This is why we try to ensure those attending our clinic for cosmetic skin care can see an experienced dermatologist. The inseparable nature of good health and fine skin deserve professional understanding, along with a safe approach.
Creams you use every day, such as retinol based products, can be an asset but need to suit you. Changes in home care can be enhanced by medical understanding and the knowledge of how products work in tandem with treatments.
