3 Proactive Ways to Maintain Youthful-Looking Skin

As we age, our body produces 1% less collagen every year, causing it to lose its fullness and elasticity. However, with the right preventative measures, you can safeguard your skin from premature aging, maintain a healthy complexion and boost collagen levels. Whether you’re concerned about wrinkles, sagging, sunspots or pigmentation, these 3 easy and proactive tips can help you maintain youthful-looking skin.

1. Golden Rules

Everyone loves a sunkissed glow in the summertime, but getting that glow safely is often overlooked. Whether you’re tanning on the lawn or in a tanning bed, overexposure to ultraviolet rays could cause skin damage like sunspots, sagging, dryness, wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation. SPF products should be your best friend when fighting against harmful UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays are known to speed up the skin’s aging process, while UVB rays cause damage to the skin during the tanning and burning process.

Our skin contains around 20-30% water, and overexposure can cause dehydration and itchiness. Protect yourself by applying SPF 15 minutes before sun exposure, followed by a hydrating moisturizer. Protect your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with Jan Marini’s Rejuvenate & Protect’s ultra-wearable SPF and antioxidant rich vitamin C serum. The bundle includes C-ESTA Serum and a choice of Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant SPF33 or Marini Physical Protectant Tinted SPF 45.

2. Home Remedies

Did you know you can take your daily facial routine to the next level with simple home remedies? For example, sleep is the easiest way to prioritize youthful skin—yes, beauty rest is real! A lack of sleep can cause drooping in the mouth and eyes, dark circles and wrinkles. The skin’s blood flow elevates when we rest, allowing restoration and collagen recovery. When collagen is restored, the skin has a better chance of repairing damage and improving elasticity. Type 1 collagen makes up most collagen peptides and is a combination of 19 amino acids found in our hair, skin and nails. These amino acids typically decrease production in the body at age 25. Collagen peptide supplements are considered the best for skin health and can be found in collagen-rich foods like beef bone broth, chicken and fish.

Using a Gua Sha tool for facial massaging can be another great addition to your daily routine to promote healthy skin by stimulating blood vessels, promoting collagen production and increasing elasticity. If you wake up with puffiness, you can use an ice cube or ice roller as a quick fix! When using an ice roller, start from the center of your face and use upward and outward strokes to roll the tool along the skin. Remember to apply just enough pressure to massage the skin because too much pressure can lead to irritation. If you don’t own a Gua Sha or ice roller, LightRx has you covered! When you visit any LightRx clinic, you can purchase these items with our Sobella skin care products to take your spa experience home with you.
