Want to Gain Back Your Youthful Look? Here's How

Stress, pollution and prolonged sun exposure are stripping away years from the natural age of our skin. As a result, we look older than our chronological age. Most of us will want our youthful look restored, but don’t know how to start or where to start. Adding to the dilemma is the emerging treatments, creams, ointments, lotions and medicines that all claim to have restorative properties for the skin and guaranteeing a younger looking skin in a matter of a few weeks. These promises and guarantees seem too attractive to ignore, but how do we really gain our youthful looks?

Remove the stress factor

Stress has been shown by recent studies to cause physical changes in the body that can speed up aging. Stress causes surges in of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol, which in turn cause blood pressure to rise and the heartbeat to become faster. 

The body, in turn, reflects the negative effects such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, anxiety, and premature age lines and wrinkles. A good way to stop the effects of stress is to meditate and relax. Meditation helps you to calm down in stressful situations. Relaxation helps you breathe easier, relax your muscles and sleep better. Doing so can return your body’s natural balance.

Exfoliation is the removal of the top, dead layer of skin. It helps speed up the natural process of skin renewal and collagen accumulation. Collagen is a protein produced by our cells that helps hold the skin together, keeping it looking younger and giving it firmness and elasticity. Use mild chemical exfoliants that help with collagen renewal such as glycolic acid and lactic acid.

Use groundbreaking skin care treatments

The scientific and medical fields have been continuously conducting research on ways to prevent aging and reverse the process to gain back your youthful look. Some of these treatments include laser skin resurfacing, wrinkle injections, peptides, retinol, and Botox. 

Botox is seeing an increase in use as a treatment of women because of its relatively painless and easy application. It should not be confused with wrinkle injections, as this is a prescription medication that disrupts the synaptic pathway between nerves and facial muscles. 

The end result is a full, wrinkle-free and youthful looking skin. However, the effects can only last for about 4 to 6 months and need treatment after the effect wears off. There are ways on how to make Botox last longer, or specifically extending the effects of Botox. You can ask an experienced cosmetologist or doctor about the best ways to make the effects of Botox last longer. 

Immediately after injection, move the muscles at the injection sites to even out the applied Botox. From 4 hours to two days after the injection, you should avoid moving the muscles near the injection sites. These are just a few tips on how you can extend the effects of Botox.

Include antioxidants in your skin rituals

Adding antioxidants to your daily rituals like bathing, applying creams or lotions and using astringents is a good way of letting your skin recover. It prevents the accumulation of free radicals or damaged skin cells, which can cause skin aging. It doesn’t always have to be applied antioxidant creams, you can also get antioxidants from the food you eat, like green leafy vegetables and fruits. 

Recovering that youthful look you once had is no longer an impossible task. Medical and scientific research have made great leaps in discovering treatments that can help you fight skin aging. Of course, natural remedies and preventive measures like exercise and avoiding excessive sun exposure are also very effective in keeping a youthful appearance. With many available options for skin rejuvenation, you just need the will to start.
