With all of the anti-aging clinics closed to in-person appointments, including ours, many women are concerned about the signs of aging returning. If you normally get treatments that reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, it can be frustrating to see them return and be unable to do anything about it. While you are waiting on your next in-person appointment for a dermal filler or other treatment, there are a few things you can do at home to limit the signs of aging.
Retinol creams are available in almost any drug store, or you can purchase them online. Retinol creams are a good source of Vitamin A for the skin, which is the best natural defense against the formation of lines and wrinkles.
Watch Your Diet and Exercise
Weight gain can make you look older in many ways. Gaining fat in areas of your face can cause new facial folds or wrinkles to appear. When you lose the weight again later, those lines and wrinkles will be even more pronounced. Avoid gaining weight in the first place with a good diet and exercise. It can be hard to keep up with these things at this time, but it is still important to make the best effort possible.
You have probably heard that everyone should drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. This is extremely important for maintaining your health and the health of your skin. In addition to regularly hydrating by drinking water, you should take measures to hydrate your skin with over-the-counter topical treatments or a moisturizer.
Avoid Sun Damage
Make sure that every time you leave the house you apply sunscreen, especially on your face. If you wear makeup, you should put on the sunscreen first, then your foundation, then the rest of your makeup. Even if you have makeup that has an SPF factor, these are not nearly as effective as actual sunblock.
Following these tips will help minimize the signs of aging while you are waiting for beauty treatments. To be prepared for your next treatment, contact us today to schedule your future appointment for after we reopen fully.
