Four Ways to Fight Looking Older

As we age, we start to look older. This statement of fact is irksome to many people, and they live in denial of the facts. Lotions and creams are bought over the counter, and skin treatments are undergone in surgeries and consulting rooms around the planet. It is understandable that we do not want to appear older, and there are many ways that we can continue the fight. Laser treatments are used with great success to improve the beauty of our skin and to give us glowing complexions, but natural lotions are also very popular and many people have seen good improvements with them. Below I have listed a few of the more popular ways to help your skin and stop ageing.

Diet

Apparently “We are what we eat”. Though not literal, this saying carries a lot of truth. If you eat foods full of fats and sugars, it will affect your body as well as your skin. If you start to eat a balanced, healthy diet results will follow. Some foods are better for your skin than others so you should be trying to eat food that has benefits. Fruit and Vegetables are a great place to start, but dairy products will strengthen your skin (helping wrinkles) with Greek yogurt being particularly good.

Water

You need to be drinking water, and a lot of it. This is not just for your skin, but also for your whole body’s health. Drinking water helps clean your body out and will stop you looking dehydrated. This in turn will improve wrinkles as the cells in skin need enough water to function properly. 2 litresa day should be enough for most people. Also think about the chemicals in the water you may be putting on your skin, chlorine can be removed from your shower water by running it through a filter and this is advisable.

Laser Skin Tightening

With this popular form of anti-ageing treatment, Laser skin tightening is usually very effective. By using safe and targeted near infrared light, the laser machine (Alma Laser NIR), safely and effectively heats the dermis (inner layers of skin), stimulating the production of collagen. Results are often visible after just one treatment and will continue to improve over the days and weeks after treatment as skin cells regenerate and collagen production is stimulated. This treatment is available at our Reading Skin Clinic.

Anti-wrinkle injections (Botox)

This is perhaps the most famous treatment over the past few years. An injection of Botox into the wrinkled area affects how the wrinkles are formed, leaving you practically wrinkle free. Wrinkles form when the muscles of your skin contract and Botox stops this happening. It works because a neurotoxin in the injection blocks the messages that tell your face to wrinkle; this is another procedure that needs to be repeated, as it is not everlasting. This being a medical treatment we recommend anyone talks with a trained medical professional before under going any anti-wrinkle injections. Talk to one of team here.
