10 Things People Can Do to Maintain Their Youth

The natural aging process happens to all of us. What can you do to keep a youthful appearance, slow down facial aging, stay fit, and improve your quality of life?

Our staff has assembled 10 suggestions of practices many of our patients can try to enhance their beauty and keep their bodies lean and slim.

1. Protect Your Skin With Sunblock

Most people understand the connection between sun protection and healthy skin. Consistently using a medical-grade SPF 30+ sunblock provides long-term benefits of fewer sunspots and wrinkles that could disrupt youthful beauty. This practice also reduces your risk of skin cancer.

2. Get Plenty of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant critical to healthy collagen formation. Excellent dietary sources include broccoli, kale, cantaloupe, kiwi, cauliflower, orange juice, papaya, bell pepper, sweet potato, tomatoes, and strawberries. Taking a vitamin C supplement can provide this nutrient if you have trouble getting enough fresh produce in your diet.

3. Use Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Fish is a healthy lean protein source to include in your diet. However, most people don’t eat enough fish to get enough omega-3 fatty acids. Taking 1,000 to 2,000 mg of fish oil supplements daily can benefit your overall health, including skin health and pliability. 

4. Stop Smoking

We all know smoking causes cancer, lung disease, heart disease, and many other illnesses. Did you know it also adversely affects your skin? The toxins in nicotine-based products contribute to skin damage that creates wrinkles and lines. And the physical act of drawing in smoke causes unsightly smokers’ lines around the mouth. 

5. Decrease Sugar Intake

High-sugar diets can make you gain weight and damage elastin and collagen, two essential proteins that help your skin stay firm and resilient.

6. Exercise Daily

An active lifestyle helps your body produce hormones that not only help you with beauty sleep, but also provide a sense of well-being. A regular workout routine reduces the risk of obesity to maintain a trim physique and avoid loose skin on the abdomen, breasts, and thighs.

7. Use Cosmetic Injections

The regular use of cosmetic treatments such as cosmetic injections or lasers helps prevent lines & wrinkles on the face and body.

8. Employ Non-Invasive Body Sculpting

You can maintain a youthful figure by employing advanced fat freezing technology to eliminate those unwanted bulges that don’t respond well to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting and CoolMini use this technology and present a less invasive alternative to surgical liposuction.

9. Add Medical-Grade Spa Treatments to Your Routine

Exfoliating dead skin cells and dull surface layers helps prevent premature aging. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and medical-grade skin care products help women and men keep bright, fresh-looking skin for that youthful glow.
