The Luminesce Line and a derma-grade line called The Newman Fomula, and these can be used to your advantage – but before all that, how well are you taking care of your skin right now? There are some key things to remember when caring for your skin to reduce the effects of aging.
- Reduce Exposure
There’s a variety of things that cause our skin to age – natural wear and tear is one, exposure to aging chemicals and processes is another. You should always wear sunscreen when you’re out in the sun, and you should avoid tanning salons, which expose you to high levels of UV radiation. You should also avoid touching harsh cleaning chemicals, which can irritate the skin. When you’re cleaning your home, wear gloves and long clothing so you don’t get the cleaners on your skin. When you’re outside, consider wearing a wide brimmed hat in order to shade yourself from the sun.
- Establish a Skincare Routine
Before you reach for that hyper-effective anti-aging no-wrinkle spot solution, ask yourself this: how often do you wash your face every day? Do you use a cleanser? A moisturizer? You should speak with your dermatologist before engaging in a new routine, but if you haven’t started one yet, it comes highly recommended; good habits now mean healthy skin later, and that might do more than any targeted skincare product ever could.
- Check Your Habits
What did you have for breakfast, lunch and dinner? When the answer is “greasy fast food”, it’s likely one of the sources of your skincare woes. Eating a balanced diet, preferably made at home with fresh ingredients, is essential to having beautiful skin. Do you smoke? Cigarettes contain toxins that can seriously hamper the glow of your skin, causing it to look aged more quickly. How about your sleep? Many Americans don’t get enough sleep; few are getting even 8 hours, with many falling below the 7 hour level. Sleeping helps your skin – really, your whole body – stay healthy.
These three steps can help you keep your skin looking young for much longer than if you ignored them – taking care of your skin is the best way of keeping it healthy. The best skin care routines in the world won’t protect you entirely from the aging process, though; that’s why there are so many anti-aging products and procedures. When you face is already looking more aged than you’d like it to, there are facial rejuvenation procedures that you can use to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and other dermatological problems. Dr. Newman’s world renowned Stem Cell Lift facelift is a perfect way to restore your youth and the results last 5-10 years! We have options for you.
