Cosmetic medicine has always been a cure for aging. But in the past decade, it has evolved into something as a prevention rather than a cure to aging gracefully. So here are just a few of the best and easiest preventive methods to prolong your visit to a cosmetic doctor.
Good skincare is not just about the miracle cream application. It is just a waste of money and useless unless it is combined with a good sunscreen. UY rays are homeful and make aging faster. Wearing sunscreen every day is important especially in countries like Australia as they act as physical blockers’ to UVA and UVB rays. The skin loses approximately 1% of its collagen and elastic tissue per year after age 25. Ensure that your sunscreen is strong enough (30+ is perfect for Australian conditions).
Vitamin A creams
The aging process slowly degrades your natural collagen production. Creams like retinoids can be effective in maintaining your skin’s natural healthy glow and elasticity. Retinoids are also found in prescription medications like Retin-A, Stieva A, and Retrieve as well as over-the-counter options like Retinaldehyde, Retinol, and Retinyl Palmitate. They are not as expensive as the miracle creams in department stores and stimulate collagen growth and address fine lines, wrinkles, and skin pigmentation.
