4 Tips to Keep Signs of Facial Aging at Bay

Aging is inevitable. Luckily, there are certain steps you can take — from opting for customized anti-wrinkle treatments to following a healthy diet — that will help keep your skin more vibrant, healthy, and youthful-looking as you grow older.

Changes to your appearance and skin are a natural part of aging. As we get older, our skin begins to lose its natural elasticity and we experience a decrease in collagen production. This will lead to common signs of facial aging, including: 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles 
  • General sagging of the skin 
  • Facial volume loss (sunken eyes or flattened cheeks) 
  • Development of fat below the chin (submental fat) 

The good news? There are many steps you can take to combat the above signs of aging. The team at our skin care clinic offers customized anti-aging treatments such as dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle injections, at-home skin care products including Zo Skin Health and Vivier, and we can provide advice on certain lifestyle changes that will keep your skin vibrant and beautiful for many years to come.

4 Simple Ways to Keep Signs of Facial Aging at Bay 

Aging is a beautiful process but it does come with certain challenges — the main one being battling changes to your facial appearance including the emergence of wrinkles and fine lines. Luckily, there are certain steps you can take to restore that natural glow to your face while aging gracefully and beautifully. 

This includes: 

1. Limiting Your Sun Exposure 

Limiting your exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays is the number one way to avoid sun damage and keep your skin looking younger for longer. Prolonged exposure to the sun over many years can lead to: 

  • Wrinkles and fine lines 
  • Freckles
  • Sunspots and dark spots
  • Increased risk of skin cancer 

When you are going outside, make sure to apply sunscreen generously to your skin at least 15 minutes before you leave your home — and don’t forget your hat and sunglasses! 

2. Following a Healthy Diet

If you want to minimize the appearance of facial aging, one of the simplest things you can do is make certain changes to your lifestyle. This includes: 

  • Quit smoking
  • Minimize your intake of alcohol 
  • Stay hydrated 
  • Keep your sugar and carb intake to a minimum 
  • Add healthy fats to your diet including those found in avocados, olive oil, and nuts

The Importance of Quitting Smoking 

Smoking is extremely harmful to your overall health, but did you know that it can also lead to premature signs of aging? For smokers, the damage to your skin begins much earlier and you may notice the development of crow’s feet, sagging skin, and skin staining at a younger age. 

3. Getting a Good Night’s Rest 

Did you know that getting a good night’s sleep can contribute significantly to your skin health? Research has consistently shown that sleep deprivation is associated with increased signs of skin aging, such as: 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced elasticity 
  • Droopy corners of the mouth 
  • Darker circles under the eyes 

Taking the necessary steps to ensure that you get quality sleep is very important because it will boost the production of collagen naturally, resulting in a more vibrant, youthful, and healthy appearance. 

4. Opting for Minimally Invasive Anti-Aging Treatments 

One of the safest and most effective ways of addressing any signs of facial aging is the use of minimally invasive anti-aging treatments. When compared to cosmetic surgeries such as facelifts, these non-surgical treatments including Botox, Nuceiva, dermal fillers, and IPL photorejuvenation offer many benefits, including: 

  • Quick treatment times 
  • No surgical risks 
  • Natural-looking results 
  • No associated downtime
  • Minimal side effects 

While these treatments will not stop the aging process, they can help your skin look healthy and significantly reduce any signs that make you look older.

Q. What can cause my skin to age prematurely?
Many factors could cause your skin to age prematurely. This includes excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, following an unhealthy diet, high stress levels, and overexposure to the sun’s rays. 

Q. When should I start anti-aging treatments?
The skin aging process differs from person to person and it can be influenced by many factors. However, you can start anti-aging treatments such as Botox from the age of 25-30. It is always important to book a consultation with your skin care specialist before undergoing any treatment, as they can advise you on the best way forward. Botox Treatment in Your 20s

Q. How long do the results of anti-wrinkle injections last?
Anti-wrinkle injections such as Botox provide long-lasting results, but they are not permanent. The effects of Botox will begin to wear out after three to four months, after which repeat treatments are required to help you maintain a youthful look.
