The fact is that we all start to see a sprinkle of grey hair or some lines around the eyes, mouth, and forehead. Luckily, treatments are available to support you looking your best into your 40s, 50s, and beyond!
Keeping yourself healthy alongside those treatments can help you prolong your results! A few easy actions you can do at home will help these treatments go above and beyond in keeping you looking young and healthy.
Are you excited about seeing lasting results? Let's take a peek at three preventative steps that can work concurrently with your treatment to conserve a youthful, fresh look!
We all need to do daily skincare as a part of basic hygiene, like washing, toning, and moisturizing. Essential skincare is usually about things you put on top of your skin, like different serums and creams.
Want to take it to the next level? Figure out what good you can do from the inside of your body.
One of the main things you can do to help is eat more foods that contain antioxidants. The most basic definition of aging is the oxidation of your cells, so trying an antioxidant-rich menu can give a subtle boost to your skincare habits and help protect your skin's radiance. Fortunately, antioxidants are not hard to come by and are in many delicious foods. Treat yourself to antioxidant-rich foods like blueberries and bell peppers, and you've got all you need!
Do you get enough sleep? Studies show most people get less than 6-8 hours, even though sleep is essentially the body's way of repairing itself. On top of leaving you groggy and sluggish, not getting enough sleep can leave you looking pale and grey and give you those classic undereye shadows. The overall result makes any noticeable signs of aging ten times more prominent, so make sure you get at least 6-8 hours of sleep each night.
If you have difficulty falling asleep, try improving your sleep hygiene. Make sure that you put away all phones, computers, and tablets a few hours before bed because blue light from your phone can upset your circadian rhythm! Have a cup of calming herbal tea or a glassful of water, and try reading a fiction novel. (Although maybe skip the horror novels right before bedtime!)
Implementing the same habits every day can help correct your circadian rhythm and help you get proper, healthful rest.
If you grew up thinking all fat was bad for you and you should never eat it, it may be time to unlearn that! Studies have revealed that getting sufficient healthy fats can keep your skin looking bright, enhance circulation, and keep your complexion looking more youthful!
Avocados, nuts, and fish are all sources of healthy fat, which offer the bonus of being heart-healthy, too.
