The quest for younger-looking skin is never ending as we can’t avoid aging and neither can we halt time in its tracks. The good news however, is that there are steps we can take to stay young looking. Here are some of the recommendations, starting with:
1. Stay hydrated
People who drink a large amount of water are less likely to suffer from scars, wrinkles, and lines as compared to those who drink less. If you’re wondering why this is so, water actually helps to maintain the skin’s elasticity to make your skin look younger.
While the general recommendation of drinking 8 glasses of water a day is perfectly reasonable, it only serves as a guideline.
Keep things simple and listen to your body – drink when you’re thirsty, stop when you’ve had enough and remember to make up for water loss by drinking more water if you are in the sun or exercising.
2. Exercise regularly
One of the important tips to looking younger is ensuring that your body is healthy and active. After all, research has shown us time and time again that exercising improves blood flow, eliminates waste and aids in helping the body to deliver the essential nutrients to vital organs, including the skin.
That being said, it’s understandable that exercise can be considered a chore to some, which is why it’s important to find an exercise routine that suits your interests and lifestyle. Typically one could take time off to go cycling or running, but if you’re just starting out you could always try out activities like yoga, zumba or even rock climbing with your friends!
3. Get enough sleep
There is a very good reason why people say it’s important that we get our beauty sleep – and at least 8 hours of it! To put it simply, the body regenerates and repairs itself during sleep, and this leads to a long list of benefits for your skin such as fewer wrinkles, a glowing complexion and brighter (less puffy) eyes.
Anything less than 7 hours of sleep and you’ll find yourself in what’s called a “sleep debt”, which can negatively impact your health and skin. To prevent this, try your best to practice good sleep hygiene such as making your bedroom sleep-friendly with comfortable bedding and turning off your devices at least 2 hours before bedtime.
4. Enrich your skin with the right nutrients
As mentioned earlier, your skin needs the right nutrients to have a glowy and healthy complexion. Introduce some healthy fats in your diet such as Omega-3 fatty acids found in foods like salmon or walnuts for that glowy skin. Consuming foods rich in vitamin C such as oranges can also help to improve skin elasticity and achieve a softer, more even skin tone. Strive to have a healthy and balanced diet that is sustainable in the long run for best results!
5. Consider Ultherapy treatment
There are plenty of skin treatments that promise a younger looking and lifted skin in just a few sessions. However, these treatments are often invasive.
Ultherapy, on the other hand, is a non-invasive treatment that can help you achieve a tighter, lifted skin with reduction of wrinkles and fine lines with minimal to no downtime. Ultherapy uses precise ultrasound energy to target the deep structural layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, without disrupting the skin’s surface. Each session lasts between 60 to 90 minutes. By far, Ultherapy is the US FDA-cleared treatment for skin lifting and tightening with real time visualization that does not require any surgery and making it the safest and quickest way to start seeing results!
Now that you know the 5 simple tips to looking young and youthful, perhaps it’s time you consider Ultherapy, a non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment that can give you a helping hand to tackle the signs of aging.
