The best treatment for skin rejuvenation varies depending upon an individual’s skin type, age, ethnicity, sun exposure and overall health. Nothing beats a healthy lifestyle: a diet high in fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and fish, 8-10 hours of sleep, limiting alcohol intake and regular exercise. Sun protection is vital. Use a sunscreen daily, wear a hat when exposed to sun, as well as sunglasses.
It’s never too late to start a skin care regimen. After years of neglect, a series of medical grade peels achieve wonders. Supplement this with a few IPL photofacials as necessary. Deep folds and fine wrinkles are best treated by resurfacing laser procedures, such as Mosaic laser treatments microdermabrasion and Co2 fractional resurfacing.
Regular exfoliation with topical AHA/BHA products (glycolic acids, fruit acids, salicylic acids) either as leave-on products or peels are great for using weekly. And don’t forget topical moisturising creams. Older, delicate and drier skin may require thicker moisturisers and younger, acne-prone skin may require oil-free moisturisers or serums. Supplement your moisturising regime with topical Vitamin E and Vitamin A.
