As we grow older, our skin becomes dull and rough because of sun exposure and natural ageing processes. We start to see lines and wrinkles, age spots, and sagging. We also lose our youthful glow. We try to fake luminous skin with makeup, but wouldn’t it be great to wake up with naturally radiant skin again?
Here are ways to help your skin recover its radiance. We use a holistic approach – a combination of skincare, clinical treatments, and lifestyle – that will help you reverse damage and also help your body produce healthier skin cells.
INVEST IN THE RIGHT LASER TREATMENT
Are you ready for the “Halo Glow”? Sciton Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. This is a powerful machine that uses different wavelengths to treat aging, sun damage, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores and discoloration. It can thus treat several ageing concerns, and has less down time than other laser treatments.
Servicom distributes Sciton Halo to some of Singapore’s top aesthetic clinics. Ask your doctor about Sciton Halo and the best laser treatment program for your skin concern.
PICK THE RIGHT ANTI-AGEING SKINCARE FOR YOUR SKIN TYPE
There are some clinically proven ingredients that are known to reverse the signs of ageing and return your skin’s youthful glow. Retinol and Vitamin A derivatives help slough off dead skin cells to reveal new, healthy skin. Plant extracts or botanicals are full of antioxidants and vitamins, and are also deeply moisturizing. Other key ingredients re AHAs, BHAs, hyaluronic acid, peptides, and ceramides.
In other words, you have so many ingredients at your disposal! Choose carefully, and never use a product just because “it worked for a friend.” Consider your skin type and speak to your dermatologist about the ingredients to avoid if you are prone to acne, irritation, or dryness.
INVEST IN GOOD SUN PROTECTION
UV damage can cause up to 90% of premature ageing. Always wear sunscreen, even if you are indoors or if it’s a cloudy day. UV rays can penetrate glass and clouds, and you also get incidental UV exposure from laptops and cell phones. You can also layer your UV protection by picking makeup that has additional SPF, and skincare products that have antioxidants.
PRACTICE A SKIN-SMART LIFESTYLE
Your skin heals itself while you sleep, so always clock in at least 8 hours of shut-eye. Eat a balanced diet and drink plenty of water, and consider drinking a green smoothie every day so you get more natural vitamins (cooking vegetables destroys some of its nutritional value). Stop smoking, which exposes your skin to toxins and has been linked to dull, blotchy skin. Regular exercise can also boost circulation – the better your blood flow, the more nutrients can reach your skin cells.
GET REGULAR SKIN TREATMENTS
As you age, your skin may need an extra boost from facials or non-invasive treatments like lasers, radio frequency, fillers or chemical peels. There are many available treatments that can suit every budget. Visit a clinic to inquire about Sciton Halo and other treatment options.
