I Want To Look Younger
I want to look younger. This is an universal request most cosmetic doctors get from their patients.
Everyone wants to look younger. But how?
Let us share with you some tips on how to maintain your youth.
This is the most neglected yet the most important of all. Your cosmetic doctors can recommend various aesthetic treatment for you but if you neglect a healthy lifestyle, no treatment is going to be beneficial.
Healthy diet plays an important role in keeping your skin healthy and youthful. Avoid fatty food, junk food and sugary soft drinks.
Allocate your time for exercise at least 3 times a week. Exercise improves blood circulation to your skin, bringing more essential nutrients and hydration to your skin.
Have adequate sleep. Chronic lack of sleep makes you look saggy, wrinkly with eye bags and dark eye circle. You will age quicker if you don’t sleep enough.
Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol. They make your skin age quicker.
If you wish to maintain your youth, you must at least have these 2 skin products – Sunscreen and moisturizer.
Sunscreen protects you from UV rays that cause sunburns, pigmentation and premature skin ageing. Prolonged exposure to UV rays puts you at higher risk of skin cancer. In other words, sunscreen is the most important skin care essential. Apply a good sunscreen that protects you from UVA and UVB.
Moisturizer keeps the skin hydrated. Well hydrated skin is healthier and younger. Appropriate use of moisturizer slows down the skin ageing process.
Besides sunscreen and moisturizer, it is important to keep your face clean. Wash your face at least twice a day because environmental dirt, dust and foreign substances on your face make your facial skin dry, clogged up and irritated. Clean them off when you get home after a long day.
Avoid sleeping with your make-up on!
Cosmetic / Aesthetic Treatment
If you are already doing all of the above, you can then consider aesthetic treatment.
We generally focus on 2 aspects of ageing –skin quality and face sagging.
Skin quality deteriorates with age. By improving your skin quality, you can look more youthful.
Consult a doctor to discuss what treatment is suitable for your skin. You can start with less intensive treatment such as hydrafacial, IPL rejuvenation, mild chemical peel and RF skin tightening treatment.
Face sagging is the hallmark of ageing. Your face starts to sag as you get older because you lose collagen, fat and structural support in the face. Aesthetic treatment that helps lift and tighten your face will make you look younger.
We hope this article provides some useful tips for you.
