When you hit the big 4-0 and beyond, lots of things change: Your attitude toward life, your bank account and inevitably, your skin.
Radiant and plump skin is highly sought after as it’s what often makes your skin appear youthful. But when hormones are fighting a winning battle against your skin, how can you ensure your body’s largest organ looks and feels healthy?
Beyond a regular skincare routine and SPF, there are several ways you can rejuvenate and revitalize your Gen X Skin. Let’s get into it:
You’re probably familiar with this skin-smoothing toxin, better known as Botox. Botox is the go-to for smoothing out wrinkles and giving your skin a youthful look.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Ever heard of the vampire facial made famous by Kim Kardashian a few years back? This is it. It’s a simple procedure where blood is drawn, your plasma is spun out of it and then is reinjected into your face. It’s said to improve collagen production.
Not ready for injections in your face? Chemical peels are another way to revitalize your skin. Trained estheticians and dermatologists can perform these easy beautifying procedures, which buff away and chemically dissolve rough, dry skin to reveal healthier, more radiant layers below.
Visible Light Devices
Light therapy is another way to rejuvenate your skin. Studies have shown that certain kinds of visible light can improve the condition of the skin. In other instances, lasers can help break down hyperpigmentation and sunspots for a smoother, more radiant appearance.
Sometimes your skin just needs a deep clean. Make it a habit to get regular facials, so your esthetician can ensure your pores are clean and your most fabulous skin isn’t hiding behind dead skin.
Whatever your choice, know this … all your skin needs is some TLC, sunscreen and moisture.
