More and more younger people are showing up at our offices for preventive Botox and other treatments to try and stop some of the signs of aging before they really start. It can be very helpful but what else can you do? Here are some preventative steps you can take to maintain youthful-looking skin and keep signs of aging at bay.
It’s no secret that sun exposure directly affects the skin’s health, both visibly and invisibly. From fine lines and wrinkles to an increased risk for skin cancer, protecting your skin from the sun is of utmost importance to maintaining healthy skin.
Remove Makeup Before Bed
Sometimes laziness gets the best of us at the end of the day, but a crucial step to ensuring your face stays problem-free is removing your makeup every night before going to sleep. Cleaning your face of cosmetics, dirt, and bacteria that have built up throughout the day ensures that your pores don’t get clogged and that they have time to breathe. It can also help keep your pillowcases stain-free!
Moisturize With Collagen
Collagen plays an important role in youthful skin and, in fact, many beauty-based procedures take advantage of it. In addition to strengthening skin and improving elasticity, it can also minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. These days, many topical creams and serums include collagen in their ingredients so it’s not difficult to come by.
