How To Successfully Target The First Signs Of Aging
I’ve said it once and I will say it again — aging is a privilege! We are so lucky to be on this earth and get the occasional smile line, sun spot, or wrinkle. Getting older is such a blessing, and we shouldn’t feel bad about it at all. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s wrong to invest in your skincare routine and do the best you can to keep your skin in great condition. Part of great skincare is targeting the first signs of aging.
Remember, our skin is our largest organ. It is the one organ that protects our other organs from the outside world. We should protect it, and not only for aesthetic reasons. But that doesn’t mean that we should completely ignore the aesthetic aspect of it. So if you want people to ID you while buying a drink, even when you far above the legal age of drinking, you better treat those first signs of aging right away. And here’s how.
Skincare can only get you so far
I’m a self-proclaimed skincare addict! There is no other thing that I’m willing to spend my money on as enthusiastically as I am on skincare. I love it! Trying out new products, researching active ingredients, exploring the effects over longer periods — I just enjoy every aspect of it.
So when I say that skincare can only get you so far, you have to believe that I know what I’m talking about. And don’t get me wrong, double cleansing, a good hydrating serum, retinol at night, and lots of sunscreen throughout the day are undeniably important for young-looking skin.
There is a reason why I spend so much of my paycheck on skincare, and I don’t want to minimize the importance of it. However, not even the most expensive facial serum can work like a magic wand and erase all of your sunspots and fine lines. Whatever product you may be buying, you have to be realistic about its effectiveness of it.
So what can I do to target the first signs of aging?
Once again, what I’ve said above doesn’t mean that your skincare products don’t hold any value. A good skincare routine is a solid foundation. If you start using a retinol serum and SPF early on in your life, you will prevent a lot of accumulated sun damage, and your skin will look more youthful than if you didn’t.
But most of us didn’t wear sunscreen until our mid to late twenties. It just wasn’t as much talked about as it is nowadays back in the days when we were still kids or teenagers. So chances are that you’re already experiencing your first signs of aging, such as fine lines around your eyes, lips, and on your forehead. You could also notice sun spots, enlarged pores, or unusual texture.
If you want to tackle these skin changes early on, and you already have a skincare routine that you’re sticking to, it’s time for something stronger. I wouldn’t jump right into botox and other injectables. Instead, invest your money into skin procedures such as chemical peels and laser treatments.
Why chemical peels and laser treatments?
I have to be upfront, both of these facial treatments can be a bit expensive. So you want to do some research before putting your money into any of those. However, you could say that they are widely accessible. You will find most dermatologists and aestheticians providing different types of these treatments.
The one magical thing about both laser treatments and chemical peels is that they get rid of the most superficial layer of your skin. That means that new and fresh skin has the chance to resurface. By that, I don’t mean that you’ll end up looking like a fetus. Instead, your current skin will get a refreshed, youthful, and more radiant appearance.
There are different kinds of both of these skin treatments, and the one you should get largely depends on your main concerns. Before choosing which of these two options is best for you, book a consultation and explain what it is that you are expecting from the procedure.
