Having a flawless face isn’t something that just comes naturally to all of us. For some of us, even with consistent daily effort, it can be a challenge just to look halfway decent. Genes are genes and some of us just don’t have great skin. The more collagen we have, the better.
There is also the factor of ethnicity. Many say that darker complexions and Asian heritage account for a longer lasting youthful look. For those of us that don’t have science on our side, there are a few tricks to bring your skin back to a younger state without having to go under the knife. Facial surgery, while effective, can often leave an unnatural look which can look worse than age itself.
Here are some of the most effective non-surgical secrets to keeping your skin tight, smooth, and youthful.
Traditional facelifts involve anesthesia, lots of money, and hours of work. A non-surgical facelift, however, is much less time consuming and far less invasive. Plastic surgeons use what is called a thread lift technique, lifting any sagging areas of the face by tying them back with very tiny threads which absorb and fade into the skin, leaving behind undetectable scars.
This process takes approximately 2 hours and since patients are still conscious, they are able to verify with the surgeon as they go whether they approve of the look or not.
Drink More Water
Believe it or not, hydration plays a key role in skin texture. Have you ever noticed how much older you look after a night of drinking? This is because of your body being dehydrated and consequently your skin. The more fluid that is in your body, the plumper your skin and more evenly toned your skin color is.
By drinking at least eight glasses of water a day, which is the recommended standard, you can be sure that your body is getting everything it needs to produce a healthy glow.
Lose The Pounds
Extra pounds can make skin sag and look weighed down. By limiting your caloric intake, you can greatly reduce the amount of fat in your body and look years younger, just by losing 5-10 pounds.
On top of having benefits for the skin, the emotional impact of feeling confident about yourself creates a youthful appearance, since joy is a trait of a young person. Smiling is one of the most age-defying things you can do for yourself!
Take Fish Oil
By taking the proper vitamins you can ensure your skin has the proper nutrients to maintain it’s elasticity and plumpness. Fish oil is a great supplement for skin which can be taken through a capsule or absorbed from seafood.
