This decade is a prime time in our lives when our worst nightmares involving our skin come to life.
Everything we know would happen but weren’t prepared for, take effect on our skin. We never feel the same again. This takes a toll on more than just our physical appearance.
Our inner appearance is linked to how we feel about ourselves, so you can imagine how it changes when we dislike the way we look.
Luckily, the effects of aging on our skin can be reversed with new technology that has come to the surface. It’s a like a secret you’re being invited to know.
Understand Age Spots Before You Regret I
As we age, the amount of sun exposure we’ve accumulated bites back in flat, oval-shaped brown spots on our skin. Size varies, and they usually appear around the four areas most commonly exposed to the sun: Face, shoulders, arms, and hands. Age spots can typically look cancerous, but they’re benign and can be lightened and removed for cosmetic purposes.
Age spots occur when certain areas of our skin have overactive pigment cells due to an overproduction of melanin. These areas will begin to darken over time. Not only does exposure to the sun cause these spots, but so does the use of tanning beds.
A great way to prevent the course of this skin condition is by using sunscreen and avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun during its peak of the day (between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.).
How Much Do You Know About Deep Wrinkles?
Growing up we see older people with deep lines and sagging skin. We know it’s all a part of the aging process, but it’s something that no one is ready for. Especially when it happens so early on in life.
Genetics play a major role in when and how these wrinkles show up on our skin, but so do other things like sun exposure, pollutants, and lifestyle choices such as smoking cigarettes. They usually show up around the eyes, lips, neck, and forehead.
The best way to delay the appearance of deep wrinkles is by protecting yourself from the sun, keeping your skin moisturized, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The Simple (But Important) Things to Know About Elasticity Loss
When we’re younger, our skin has a healthy balance of collagen and elastin cells to keep our skin plump and firm.
However, as we age the production of these important cells slows down, causing the skin to become loose and wrinkly.
To test how elastic your skin is, pinch a small area on the back of your hand for a few seconds. Then, count how many seconds it takes for your skin to return to normal (completely flat). If it takes 0-2 seconds, you have nothing to worry about.
However, if it takes longer to flatten out, the elasticity of your skin is suffering.
Elasticity loss is inevitable when it comes to the skin aging process. However, that doesn’t mean that you must accept it early on in your life. The problem can be solved with cosmetic anti-aging treatments that will give your skin everything it needs to be alive and radiant.
What You Need to Know About Dry Skin
Our bodies begin preparing for menopause when our 50s hit, which means a decrease in estrogen and other hormones. This decrease is the culprit for why we see dryness, sometimes accompanied by acne and fine lines, around the main points of our faces.
It doesn’t matter if we’ve battled oily skin for most of our lives because our skin is changing, and not for the better. At first, the change may be minor, but if left untreated it can lead to other issues that will be harder to deal with, such as:
Premature aging around the eyes and mouth
Loss of elasticity
Loss of youthful glow
Luckily, treating dry skin is easy with the right moisturizer.
Applying moisturizer after cleansing our faces is beneficial to our skin. For those who have been battling oily skin most their lives, it can come as a surprise that they need moisturizer just as much as someone who is used to having dry skin. Regardless, of your regular skin type, moisturizer is always a go-to product.
With all these skin issues occurring in the same decade, there has to be more that we can do besides finding a good moisturizer and staying out of the sun, right?
Yes, those things are important, but they don’t stand a chance in the fight against maintaining healthy skin. How do we do that?

The Reason Why Everyone Loves Radiofrequency Facials
This treatment’s purpose is to reshape the body and face from beneath the superficial layer of skin. It’s nonsurgical, noninvasive, and offers long-lasting results. The method used is heat energy, which remodels tissue and produces elastin and new collagen.
If anti-aging is a skin concern, then Radiofrequency facials are a great choice. These facials are a superhero against fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the nose and mouth. It also works to lift cheeks and tightens the jawline. Not to mention, Radiofrequency facials continue to boost collagen production for up to 6 weeks following the treatment.
The treatment starts with a deep cleansing of the skin, followed by a cooling gel. This gel aids in the production of collagen. It can also be replaced with a cream. After the application of a gel, the skin is further cleansed and exfoliated. Debris, dirt, and grime are extracted from pores, and skin is hydrated and given antioxidant protection.
As we enter this new period in our lives, it’s time to start taking the health of our skin more seriously. By implementing these wonderful and amazing facial and collections into our skincare regimen, we can ensure that our skin will continue to be healthy and glow even when we continue to get older.
