6 Ways To Keep Your Skin Looking Youthful

Just because our collagen production starts to decrease in our mid-20s doesn’t mean we have to resign ourselves to a life of aging skin we have no control over.

Instead, visit our New York spa and follow these six simple times for flawless, youthful skin you’ll love — for years to come.

Be Wary Of The Sun

You may love that sun-kissed tan, but trust us when we say the sun isn’t actually doing any good for your skin. Both UVA and UVB rays are wreaking havoc, and it’s imperative that you take precautionary measures for your skin care.

Whether it’s a sunny day in Central Park or a cloudy day simply walking home, you’ll need to wear sunscreen regardless. On the hottest of days, try to stay indoors or at least in the shade as much as possible. And, of course, wear layers! The sun may feel good, but it can create a lot of skin damage and age your skin.

Commit To A Skin Care Regimen

If you’re not washing your face morning and night, it’s time to change. Commit to taking care of your skin now, and you’ll enjoy fewer wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines later on. Make sure to use skin care products with good ingredients, moisturize your skin sufficiently, and enjoy a facial every now and then. You could even work visiting a facial spa into your routine to really see your skin improve over time.

Whatever you’re doing, consistency will be key. So whether you’re visiting the nearest day spa monthly, washing your face daily, or using LED light therapy at home weekly, be consistent.

Get Enough Sleep

It’s called beauty sleep for a reason. This may be hard in the city that never sleeps, but giving yourself a full night of sleep each night is one of the best things you can do for your skin. This is when your body goes into repair mode! Ever wonder why your skin has that healthy, dewy glow in the morning? This is why. Your body is busy increasing the blood flow to your skin while you sleep and improving your complexion.

A late night on the weekends here and there is probably OK, but you’ll be amazed at the difference a few good nights of sleep can make in your skin care.

Visit A Spa Regularly

Spa treatments are what’s going to take your skin care to the next level. Everything on this list is essential for clear, youthful-looking skin, but getting facial treatments from your local spa will truly make your face glow. At Advanced Skin Care Day Spa, we’re dedicated to giving you customized facial treatments and facial add-ons.

Whether you choose an oxygen facial, microcurrent facial, European facial, or another spa service, doing so will rejuvenate your skin, especially if you schedule facials regularly. Consider it your personal time each week or month, and enjoy the professional skin care that will work wonders on your face.

Eat Good Foods

Many people know they should avoid sugary or fried foods for an improved complexion. Instead of focusing so much on what you can’t eat, though, enjoy tasty, healthy foods that will help give you clearer, younger-looking skin.

Antioxidants and vitamin A will both help your skin produce more collagen, which will reduce the appearance of wrinkles and even help heal damaged skin. Antioxidants even work to fight cancer! Blueberries, kale, goji berries, spinach, strawberries, almonds, and dark chocolate can all help improve your skin’s complexion, and there are plenty of other foods that will join in the quest for youthful-looking skin. Our favorite part? Most of the foods are delicious.

Lower Your Stress

New York City can be a hectic place, but not allowing the city, your job, or your personal life to cause you excess stress could benefit your skin just as much as some top skin care products would. Determine a stress-management technique that works for you and your lifestyle, and go to town! This could include reading, meditation, yoga, spa visits, exercise, or anything else that matches you and your personality.

This is so important because our bodies release chemicals and hormones when we’re stressed that negatively affect our skin’s cells and increase inflammation. If you have a particularly stressful week and can’t seem to get your emotions under control, schedule a visit to your nearest day spa and relax — you’ll be taking care of your skin by decreasing stress and by enjoying professional skin care.
