Maintaining a healthy glow throughout the years may be a challenge, but taking it one step at a time can slow down the ageing process. Every little effort counts, and you can still have that youthful skin even when the times seem to fight against you.
Sleep is NOT for the weak
During sleep, your body gets busy by releasing hormones that boost cell turnover. If possible, get at least eight hours of sleep. Try to avoid using your cell phone before bedtime-- the blue light emitted by the screen affects the production of melatonin and may affect your sleep cycle.
Control weight fluctuations
We are not saying to give up your favorite snacks, but constant weight fluctuation may contribute to weaker skin elasticity. Gaining some pounds and then dramatically losing them can leave behind stretch marks and wrinkles. Similar to a rubber band, frequent expansion and contraction will cause poor skin elasticity resulting in saggy skin. So eat a healthy balanced diet and make to exercise regularly even if it’s just a light one!
Go easy on the eyes
The skin around the eyes are thinner and are more sensitive than the rest of your face. When applying makeup or skin care, be extra careful with this area. Don’t rub on your eyes too much and try dabbing motions instead. Never forget to put eye cream as the skin around the eyes don’t produce oils by itself, and needs to be moisturised.
Water is your holy grail
Believe what they all say for water always saves the day! Drinking at least two liters of water a day keeps your body and your skin hydrated from morning to evening. Leaving out the h2o will make your skin dry and dull, so always remember to quench that thirst.
You’ll never go wrong with results-based facial treatments
Stick to a no-pricking modern facial every two weeks, instead of facials with pricking that might further irritate your skin and cause hyperpigmentation. If the problem is enlarged pores, or brown spots and acne scars, then one thing that can rescue you is our Pixel Laser Resurfacing. Aside from the glow, it will give you smoother and more even skin! Did you know that aging starts at the age of 25 and by that time your body’s collagen production starts to slow down? It’s what leads to wrinkles and sagging. To counteract this and maintain youthful skin, invest on treatments like Ultherapy which will stimulate your collagen production for 6 months up to 1 year in just one session.
We all crave for the kind of healthy skin that stays even from within, not just the temporary glow and look. So how do we go about it? Take good care of yourself. A youthful-looking skin is a reflection of a healthy mind and healthy body.
