Keep your glow healthy by avoiding these skin damaging habits.
SIN 1: Skipping the sunscreen
One of the easiest ways to keep your youthful radiance is to wear sunscreen every day. Sun exposure can lead to wrinkles, dark spots, age spots and sagging. Already seeing signs of sun damage? BroadBand Light Therapy can help restore your skin’s healthy glow and take years off your complexion.
SIN 2: Not drinking enough H2O
Staying hydrated is key for a dewy, plump complexion. Water also helps rid the skin of toxins for overall skin health. If you are dehydrated, the skin appears duller and wrinkles and pores stand out more – so hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
SIN 3: Not wearing your sunglasses
Cute sunnies are more than just a fashion statement, they keep your eyes safe from the sun’s damaging rays. Squinting in bright sunlight can also cause those pesky little wrinkles in the corners of your eyes. If crow’s feet are creeping in, a wrinkle relaxer like Botox can smooth away those lines and keep them away for 3-6 months.
SIN 4: Too much sugar
Sugar has a major effect on the skin – it causes inflammation which can lead to swelling and breakouts, and it breaks down collagen for a less plump, less perky appearance. It’s best to cut back on the sweet stuff and opt for healthy fats, complex carbohydrates and antioxidants instead…your skin will thank you.
SIN 5: Smoking
Everyone knows smoking is bad for your health, but it also makes you look older, faster. Smoking deprives the skin of oxygen and nutrients causing sagging, roughness, wrinkles (especially around the mouth and eyes) and dullness. Fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm can help restore lost volume and help fill in lines around the mouth and lips.
