Posted on November 16, 2016 by Cynthia M. Poulos, M.D.

Let’s face it, who hasn’t said these words before “I wish I looked younger!” Most of those is due to issues with our skins natural softness and glow. Maintaining that healthy skin can do a lot for your look and keep you looking younger for longer. Keeping that skin healthy takes some work, but it isn’t out of our reach. There are some easy ways you can help your skin out by altering your lifestyle here and there.

Here are 3 dermatologist approved anti-aging tips that you can easily implement into your daily life:

  1. You are what you eat: Yes, what we eat does influence our bodies and our skin is no different in that regard. Make sure you are taking Vitamin D supplements and eating plenty of food that is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, such as salmon. You should make sure you are drinking plenty of water and staying hydrated as well. Also, avoid eating food that is processed and heavy in sugar—these foods are inflammatory and can cause your skin to get red, puffy and itchy.
  2. Reduce Sun Exposure: Excessive unprotected UV exposure is widely considered to be unhealthy for your skin. If you want your skin to maintain a more youthful appearance then it is important that you utilize sunscreen any and every time you step outside, no matter the weather or season. You should also try to spend less time in direct sunlight outdoors. Consider exercising outdoors early in the morning or late afternoon when the sun isn’t hitting you with a ton of direct sunlight.
  3. Try out skin regenerating procedures: We offer a large selection of procedures designed to rejuvenate and refresh your skins natural glow and youthfulness. We recommend trying out some peel treatments. We can exfoliate your skin with a chemical peel which will massively stimulate collagen growth in your skin. This technique will help restore a more youthful image and remove blemishes.
