Beauty and healthy

For many women, the idea of wrinkles and fine lines appearing is a terrifying prospect. But no matter how much you look after your skin and take your skincare routine seriously, it is pretty impossible for your age not to catch up with you at some point. The good news is that there are plenty of things you can do to mitigate the damage, and we will list some of them here so that you can try and incorporate them into your daily routine. If you take your skincare seriously, you can’t afford not to read on!

Regular Botox

While Botox is not for everyone, it is a great solution for ironing out the odd wrinkle here and there. It used to be reserved for the likes of celebrities and very rich people, but these days a lot of normal people are using it. Botox is applied via a needle to areas that need the most attention. The downside is that you can lose some of the expression from your face, but most people see this as a small price to pay for eliminating wrinkles. Go for regular sessions to get the most from your treatment, and always used a trusted and trained practitioner so that you feel completely reassured that you are in good hands.

Diet Plays a Big Part

Your diet is something that has a big effect on your skin so make sure it includes plenty of fresh fish, fruit and vegetables. Drinking loads of water has long been known to improve the skin and add elasticity – the more hydrated your body is the younger you will look. Avoid heavy drinking as this is sure to dry the skin out and age it in the process, and obviously smoking is a big no-no.

Regular Dermatology Appointments

You need to get expert help for your skin, and a dermatologist will be able to advise you on the best ways to treat your particular skin type. They are trained in all things skin-related, so have regular checkups and follow their advice to the letter. They know what they are talking about! A dermatologist may also be able to recommend other treatments and procedures that could be right for you, so choose one that you trust and feel reassured by.

Get Loads of Sleep

Your sleep time is the time when your skin cells are able to repair themselves, so make sure you get plenty of good quality sleep. Everybody needs different amounts of sleep, but the important thing is that you allow yourself a good long sleep every night that is unbroken so your skins cells can regenerate. Go to bed early, and make sure you wind down before you do so that the minute your head hits the pillow, you drop off. If you struggle to nod off then try reading a book, listening to some calming music or even try taking some herbal sleeping tablets. The better quality your sleep is, the younger and more refreshed you will look in the morning.

Looking after your skin is a vital part of looking young, so don’t neglect its needs!
