No one likes to think about it, but eventually that young, rosy-looking and soft skin you’ve got is going to begin to sag, dry out, and form unsightly wrinkles. You might not think there’s not much you can do about it – everyone gets older, and as they do, their skin shows their age – but the truth is there are plenty of ways to keep your skin looking young and healthy as you age. Here are a few of the best and most effective ways to bring your skin back to its more youthful state.
On the Skin or In the Mouth
There are fantastic ways to revitalize the appearance of your skin regardless of your age, and they’re all available from dermatologists and cosmetic companies. However you have to know which products work and which don’t – and how to use them. For example, while phytoceramides are an excellent way to moisturize your skin and return elasticity to it, you’ll do better to take an oral supplement like phytoceramides instead of applying it topically. Interestingly, the reverse is true for skin treatments such as vitamin C serum or argan oil: these treatments are only highly effective when applied to the skin directly. Make sure to pay close attention to the instructions for each skin treatment to ensure you’re using it in the way it was designed to be; whatever treatment you do eventually choose, you can rest assured that using it properly will do wonders for the appearance of your skin.
A Little Surgical Help
Sometimes even the most powerful skin serum or anti-aging cream might not be enough for your needs. However, if nothing else works there’s always the last and sometimes most drastic option: surgery. Procedures such as facelifts have been used for decades to tighten up sagging skin, but you don’t necessarily have to go under the knife for a medical treatment. Botox injections are a popular alternative to more invasive surgery, though temporary; the effects of a Botox treatment usually last anywhere from three to six months before those wrinkles begin to show up once more. Other treatments such as microdermabrasion are also good ways to revitalize your skin in a non-invasive way as well; many people feel that a good deep thorough cleansing through a microderm treatment can leave skin feeling more healthy and glowing, regardless of how many wrinkles you may have.
