Age is just a number right? You’re as young as you feel.
But the brutal truth? You are still as old as you look.
It’s inevitable that with time, our faces are going to show our true age. But by looking after your face, combined with the right treatments, you can take steps to reduce the effects that life long wear and tear shows.
First and foremost: Looking after our skin
With the right care, which can be done at home, you can maintain the softness and firmness of your face and delay the appearance of the dreaded wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Investing in a good skincare product or treatment and including this in your daily routine can have long-term benefits, such as:
- Giving your skin strength and firmness
- Places a helpful role in the replacement of dead skin cells
- Improve skin texture and structure
- Provides soft, smooth skin
- Reduce facial imperfections, blemishes, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage
- Reduce pores, fine lines, under eye circles, wrinkles, crows feet
- Maintains elasticity, brightness and glowing
Starting your skin care routine as early as possible can set you up for the future of ageing. As with anything, to see results, you need to make time for your skin care routine and not look at it as a quick fix.
To improve and maintain healthy skin even more by reducing smoking and sun exposure. Not only can this have a huge, positive effect on the reduction of wrinkles, but also reduce the risk of skin cancer and sun damage.
Let the professionals take care of it
Looking after your skin always has and always will be important. But there will come a time whereby all the cream in the world will not reverse the ageing process. Thankfully, there are professionals that can help with this.
Accepting yourself in today’s society can be hard, with pressure to look a certain way can really hinder our self-esteem. Having wrinkles and skin problems can really knock our confidence and increase anxiety – which we don’t want. This can actually have a negative impact on the way we look and increase the ageing process, eeek!
While, as a society, we want to encourage self-acceptance…. at the same time, it’s totally acceptable to have some extra help by the professionals to make you look and feel good. Everyone is different – and we need to accept their choices.
If you are afraid of any form of needles or big machines going near your face, don’t worry, there are plenty of non-surgical treatments that can help reduce the ageing process.
Eyes are one of the most charming features of our faces and can convey a variety of emotions. As we get older, our eyelids start to sag and we begin to see several lines around our eyes – also known as crow’s feet.
As with any side effect of ageing, it’s hard to accept these changes and can also hinder our vision. While there are a plethora of ways to address crows feet including almond milk, avocado and cucumber – there comes a time where we need a little extra help.
Treatments that will help reduce puffy and wrinkled eyes:
- Chemical peels
- Dermal fillers
- Jett Plasma Ionisation
- Radio frequency skin tightening
As we get older, our lips can get thinner and the skin around them start to sag. Thankfully, with today’s advanced technology and plethora of beauty treatments available, there are both surgical and non-surgical treatments that can assist with those unwanted wrinkles. Some of these are:
- Dermal lip fillers
- Jett plasma ionisation
- Semi-permanent make-up
Unfortunately with aging, teeth are one of the things that are affected. The good thing about being older is you have more experience with brushing and flossing, and are more likely to have fabulous teeth.
However, there comes a point where your teeth become less sensitive, nerves become smaller and a person is less able to feel pain relating to decay or gum disease. This means that conditions aren’t recognised as early as they usually are and cannot be saved.
The one thing we can do is prevent losing our teeth. We can do this by taking good care of our teeth and regularly attending a dentist appointment.
Unfortunately, we do not have full control over what happens later on in life.
Thankfully, there are many solutions available today that are convenient and natural looking.
For example, dental implants are great for replacing missing tooth roots and all on 4 dental implants are an amazing solution for a set of failing or missing teeth.
Although there are many inevitable changes that come with age – the good thing is that we have the control to prolong their appearance.
Living in the 21st century also means a plethora of treatments that can assist in reducing the things that we no longer have control over. Providing we do all we can to look after ourselves, we can prolong that need for as soon as possible.
Have you got any tips on preventing and reducing the inevitable changes that come with age?
