Four Ways to Fight Aging Naturally

At some point, we all face the realities of aging. Whether we like it or not, eventually we all start to see a sprinkle of grey hair or some lines around the eyes, mouth, or forehead. Here at Advanced Dermatology, we offer plenty of treatments that can help you age with grace and beauty!

Although you know we’re fans of a good filler or Botox, it really helps if you keep yourself healthy in order to get the most out of your services with us. Fortunately, there are a few easy things you can do at home that will help these treatments go above and beyond in keeping you looking young and healthy.

Interested in seeing lasting results? Let’s take a look at three preventative measures that can work together with your treatment to preserve a fresh, youthful look!

Add Antioxidants To Your Diet

We all need to do regular skin maintenance as a part of necessary hygiene, like washing, toning, and moisturizing. That’s Skincare 101, and it usually involves what you put on top of your skin.

If you want to go the extra mile, the next step is figuring out what you can do from the inside of your body,

One of the first things you can do to help that is to start consuming more antioxidants. The most basic explanation of aging is the oxidation of your cells, so eating an antioxidant-rich diet can provide a subtle boost to your skincare routine and help preserve your skin’s youthful glow. Indulge in antioxidant-rich foods like blueberries and bell peppers to get the nutrients you need!

Get Enough Sleep

Do you sleep enough? Studies show that most people don’t, even though sleep is essentially the body’s damage control system. Not getting enough sleep can leave your skin looking grey and dried-out, and give you those classic undereye bags. The overall effect makes any visible signs of aging ten times more noticeable, so make sure you get at least 6-8 hours of sleep every single night. Your body can’t repair itself if you don’t allow it to!

If you have trouble getting sleep, try correcting your sleep hygiene. Make sure that you put away the screens a few hours before bed – that pesky blue light from your phone can mess with your circadian rhythm! Have a cup of calming herbal tea or a glass of water, and try reading a book. (Although maybe skip the horror novels right before bedtime!)

Performing the same routine every day helps correct your circadian rhythm and can help you get proper, restorative rest.

Eat Enough Fat

This step may seem counterintuitive, but hear us out. If you grew up thinking that all kinds of fat are unhealthy and you shouldn’t be eating them, it’s time to unlearn that! Studies have shown that getting enough healthy fats can actually keep your skin looking radiant, improve circulation, and keep your skin looking younger!

Avocados, nuts, and fish are all sources of healthy fat, which offer the bonus of being heart-healthy, too.

Treat Yourself to a Spa Day. Because You Deserve it!

When it comes to looking and feeling your best, there’s nothing quite like a day at the spa to help you feel completely rejuvenated. Life can get busy, making it hard to find time to properly treat yourself. However, doing so can make you feel more productive and inspired, day in and day out. Advanced Dermatology proudly supports Simply Posh Aesthetic Spa, located in Bellmore, NY.

Facials are one of the many favorite services offered by Simply Posh Aesthetic Spa and for good reason. Targeting the toxins and harmful chemicals that reside deep within your skin, facials include deep cleansing and exfoliation treatment that will have your skin looking healthy and youthful. Most spas can help diminish the signs of aging skin, and can also help prevent future breakouts. This month they are offering 25% off any facial. Just mention the code “email” to get the discount.

We love providing you with the anti-aging treatments you love to get the confidence you deserve. To help prolong those results, pamper yourself from the inside out with the things your body needs most. Looking for a consultation on what you should do next?
