We all know ageing is inevitable but is there any way we can turn back the clock and erase the ageing of our skin?
My most vital piece of advice is that prevention is nearly always better than cure. The majority of aging we see on our skin is due to external factors such as UV, smoking, pollution, diet, lifestyle, and stress. Therefore making small changes to our lifestyle can have a big impact on our skin. In fact, the sooner you start to make these changes the better.
Here are some rules for younger looking skin:
1) Wear broad spectrum SPF.
Many people don’t realize that it is not just on a hot sunny day you need to use sunscreen but rather it should be applied on a daily basis due to the ever-present damaging UVA rays. Such rays cause premature aging in the form of lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.
My top pick would be Heliocare SPF 50 plus and Obagi C serum, this combination protects you against UVA, UVB and free radical damage.
2) Invest in a good skin care routine.
Looking after the health of your skin by having a good skin care routine is crucial- keeping it healthy and hydrated, reducing the risk of sensitivity and elevated levels of inflammation, which can lead to premature aging.
At Skyn Doctor Clinic we feel so passionately about ensuring our patients use the correct skincare products that we offer a free skin consultation where your skin is examined, and a bespoke prescriptive skincare regime will be devised for your unique needs.
3) Advanced treatment options.
Innovating treatment such as the Laser Re-surfacing can help achieve pain free skin plumping and anti-ageing results Our state of the art Lynton Duetto MT laser machine is able to emit short pulses of light that stimulate skin cells to produce increased amount of collagen, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can be used on the face, neck and chest area, takes 20 minutes with no redness and no downtime so you get straight back to work afterwards!
The results are long lasting with skin looking firmer, plumper and more rejuvenated, pores will appear visibly reduced and skin-tone more even. This treatment is ideal for those who want to avoid the more invasive treatments.
Botox remains in my opinion the most effective ways to smooth out those lines. It also prevents wrinkles from getting worse- think of it as a pause button for lines. With my clients, I will often suggest combining botox with peel treatments such as Obagi’s Blue Radiance Peel for a luminous and wrinkle-free complexion.
