It is possible to have great looking skin well into your 50’s if you take the time to treat your skin right. Here are some tips on achieving a glowing and radiant face no matter what your age.

Exfoliate

As we age, our skin does not renew itself as quickly as it used to. You can keep your skin glowing and looking fresh by regularly exfoliating it and removing dead skin cells to see a more refreshed complexion. There are two ways to do this: manual exfoliation with a scrub or face brush, or chemical exfoliation with a chemical peel such as Cutis Chemical Peel, a skin peeling treatment containing alpha hydroxy acids or salicylic acid to improve skin tone and texture.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a safe and non invasive way to stimulate collagen underneath the skin. This is done using ultrasound energy which targets the layers deep beneath the skin and not the surface. This means you can get great anti-aging benefits without any downtime. This is a US FDA-approved treatment for tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles. Skin specialists in Singapore can provide this treatment for you at certified laser clinics.

Stay Hydrated

Your skin cells are composed of 64% water! Keep them nice and plump by making sure you drink plenty of water to nourish your skin. Vegetables and fruit also contain high amount of water that your body uses to keep hydrated.

Eat Nutritiously

Along the same lines, you should also make sure that what you put in your body is beneficial. Antioxidants found in brightly colored vegetables and fruits are great for the skin and combat free radicals that can cause inflammation in the body.

Botox

There’s a reason why Botox is one of the most requested procedures in our aesthetic clinic in Singapore. It simply works. Botox is used to remove wrinkles that appear due to muscle contraction. Botox relaxes deep furrows and wrinkles in the brow area as well as smile lines around the mouth and crows’ feet at the corner of the eyes.

Limelight Photo Facial

By the time we reach our 50s, we’ve accumulated many years of sun damage, resulting in hyperpigmentation such as age spots and freckles. The Limelight PhotoFacial offered at our aesthetic clinic effectively treats dark spots using pulsed light waves that reach as far as 1260 nanometers into the skin’s dermis. This skin procedure also is great for minimizing redness and eliminating noticeable tiny veins near the skin’s surface.

Use Sunscreen

It’s never too late to start using sunscreen. The sun is the main reason we experience wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Using skin care products that contain sunscreen with broad spectrum (protection against UVA and UVB) is the smartest thing you can do to keep your skin glowing.

Rest

Get adequate rest to ensure your skin looks rejuvenated each morning. Our skin renews and repairs itself while we sleep. If we don’t give ourselves enough hours of quality sleep, the results will readily show on our face. Make your sleep even more productive by using an anti aging skincare product such as Fibroblast Growth Factor Serum from Dr. Sylvia Skin Care at nighttime.
