The Importance of Preventative Anti-Aging
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? (Don’t panic..this is not a job interview!) What we’re talking about here is your skin.
Since the skin is the human body’s largest organ and our first line of defense against environmental damage and other outside offenders, it’s important that we implement the necessary preventative anti-aging measures, early-on, to ensure the health and wellness of this vital organ.
Preventative Anti-Aging vs. Restorative Anti-Aging
It’s been said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is particularly true when it comes to skincare.
As we age, natural production of hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen slows down leading to visible changes that can be seen on our skin. These changes can include things like fine lines, wrinkles, saggy skin, uneven skin tone, and more.
Since it’s much easier to prevent than restore (or correct) skin damage, most experts agree that it’s a good idea to begin implementing preventative anti-aging measures sooner rather than later. The sooner you start, the less work you’ll have to do as you age (think of it like your retirement savings plan).
What’s Your Preventative Anti-Aging Plan?
Your preventative anti-aging plan should utilize a combination of healthy lifestyle practices which include getting enough sleep, drinking plenty of water, not smoking, eating a healthy diet, and exercise, in conjunction with preventative anti-aging skincare that minimizes damage and helps restore the skin.
Although some people use “having good genes” as an excuse to neglect their skin, experts agree that a preventative anti-aging plan that incorporates a healthy lifestyle and the right preventative anti-aging products trumps good genes hands-down!
So, where do you see yourself in 10 years? If dry, dull, and wrinkled with sunspots and hyperpigmentation isn’t what you envisioned, read on for some preventative anti-aging skincare tips to start incorporating into your routine today!
Using a moisturizer or serum will help the skin stay soft and supple but in order for it to be beneficial to your preventative anti-aging routine it must have the ability to retain water. One ingredient that aids in water retention is hyaluronic acid. Look for this ingredient in your preventative anti-aging products to help prevent dry skin, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and leave your complexion with a youthful-looking glow. We recommend Franz 101 Volumizing Anti-Aging Face Serum for amazing preventative anti-aging benefits that you can see and feel.
The thin skin under our eyes is the most susceptible to damage and the aging process. Therefore, incorporating a preventative anti-aging treatment specifically target to this vulnerable area is a good idea if you want to prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or prevent new ones from forming. Eye serums, like Franz Botalin Age Repair Eye Serum, can be an excellent addition to your preventative anti-aging arsenal, as it provides targeted nourishment to the delicate skin around the eyes giving them a brighter, more youthful appearance.
One of the most important preventative anti-aging products that you should start using very early on is sunscreen. Not only does sunscreen prevent sunburn, but it also protects your complexion from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. These rays are the biggest culprits of premature aging and are what cause those pesky wrinkles and sunspots.
Vitamin A & C
As we age, our skin may become dull and lose elasticity due to hormonal fluctuations and environmental factors. To prevent this, we recommend incorporating Vitamins A & C into your preventative anti-aging plan. These powerful ingredients will help brighten your skin, catch free radicals and stimulate collagen formation.
