Okay, so a lot of us think that achieving younger, more youthful looking skin is simply a pipe dream. There are so many lotions and potions that swear to zap your skin back to its former youth, but more often than not, they don’t work. Or, at least, they don’t work as well as they should.
The truth is that while some anti-aging products aren’t as effective as they could be, that’s not always the case. Believe it or not, you can turn back time and achieve more youthful skin, here’s how:
Get a prescription strength retinol cream
Forget the retinol creams you can get over the counter, if you want more youthful skin, you need the good stuff. Retinol is a strong form of vitamin A – it’s a pure form. This means that it works much more quickly at restoring the skin’s surface than other forms of it. When used on a regular basis, retinol creams actually have the ability to turn back time and remove skin blemishes, bumps, and lines. It can take time to work, and in some cases can cause redness and soreness. However, retinol is one of the most effective treatments for achieving more youthful skin.
Have a skin peel
When it comes to anti-aging treatments, skin peels have become incredibly popular over the past few years. This is because they’re a treatment that offers long-lasting results and comes with the bonus of being non-invasive. While you can buy do-it-yourself chemical peels, it’s best to use the skin care services of a professional clinic. Otherwise, you could end up damaging your skin. How chemical peels work is that a chemical agent is applied to the skin, causing it to peel. This exfoliates it, reduces the appearance of fine lines, and stimulates collagen production.
As a last resort, Botox can be a fantastic method of turning back the clock and restoring your skin to its former glory. Admittedly, not everyone is keen on the idea of botox, but if it will give your skin the youthful look that you’re after, then it’s worth having. The great thing about Botox is that it’s a long-lasting treatment, and is minimally invasive. Plus, it can be used to target specific areas, such as crow’s feet by the eyes or laughter lines around the lips. Although it is a ‘surgical’ procedure, it requires no anesthetic and has a very short recovery time. You could be back to your normal day within half an hour of having your Botox treatment.
It’s no secret that if we could, we would all opt to go back to our twenties when our skin was soft, smooth, and wrinkle-free. While we can’t turn back time in the physical sense, what we can do is make our skin look younger and more youthful. As well as having a regular skin care routine in place, take advantage of the suggestions above. Take these on board and you can achieve skin that’s wonderfully healthy and youthful-looking.
