Collagen is required for healthy skin, muscles, hair, bones, ligaments, and tendons. Because it begins to deteriorate as you get older, it’s critical to make some key skincare decisions. Dr. Azza Halim is a board-certified physician who can answer all of your questions about how to reverse the clock. If you are 50 or older, Dr. Halim has several suggestions for looking like a 30-to 40-year-old.
Read on to discover how you can appear ten years younger with these expert suggestions.
1 — A specialist could help with the best skin treatment plan for you
First and foremost, you may begin treatment for skin tightening and photodamage. Your skincare needs will be evaluated by a professional. They’ll also look at your facial development, skin laxity, and bone density changes that occur as you age from 45 to menopause or perimenopause. Good nutrition, sunblock volume replenishing, strenuous exercise, and laser treatment can all be used to address these problems.
2 — The right vitamins can help you achieve tighter, younger-looking skin
Dr. Halim offers the best vitamins for tighter, younger-looking skin, telling us, “Vitamin A, C, E, folic acid, anthocyanins, and collagen all aid in the formation of building blocks that we require for youthful skin. Unfortunately, we start losing collagen when we reach our 20s and 30s as a result of aging too rapidly; therefore beginning early with dietary well-being including exercise and skincare can help minimize your sagging skin and wrinkles.”
3 — Vitamin C serum and a moisturizing de-puffing eye cream are key
Don’t forget about your eye creams and serums if you want your skin to seem a decade younger! Dr. Halim advises, “For a general regimen, I recommend using the same products as above, however adding hyaluronic acid serum (Alastin), Vitamin C serum, followed by an eye cream and sunblock in the morning time for moisturizing and de-puffing the delicate eye areas.” She also suggests exfoliating once or twice each week.
4 — Use micellar water or an oil cleanser to remove makeup
“Removing makeup with micellar water or an oil cleanser first followed by the Zo Gentle Foam to thoroughly cleanse skin is a common nighttime ritual. Many people wear more makeup as they get older, so it’s important to remove it properly. Apply a hydrating serum after removing the make up and moisturize,” says Dr. Halim.
Dr. Halim recommends combining a mild night retinol cream with a moisturizer for maximum results. Just keep in mind that your skin might become more sensitive and dry as it matures, so don’t over-dry it.
