What anti-aging steps can I take that truly make a difference?

Living an anti-aging lifestyle doesn’t mean you spend all your time fixating on your appearance or using pricey potions to look years younger. Rather, there are important preventive steps you can take that are backed by science to slow your aging. 

Adopting nutritional and other lifestyle habits can also have a big impact and seeing the right aesthetic medicine physician. 

We’ve compiled tips that keep wrinkles, sags, and other unwelcome signs of aging at bay. You’ll be thrilled with how fabulous you look when you combine these tips with the right anti-aging treatments here at Serenity.

1. Nix the sun

The sun’s UV rays are some of the most damaging things to your skin, and they cause premature wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and more. 

Fortunately, you can do a lot to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful effects, like using sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, wearing sun-protective clothing and sunglasses, and avoiding the sun when it’s the strongest — from 10am to 4pm. 

2. Be gentle to your skin

Repeated tugging and picking, sleeping on your side with your face squished into your pillow, and removing makeup haphazardly or not at all can wreak havoc on your skin and contribute to premature aging. 

Instead, treat yourself to cloud-like sheets, allow time in your day for gently cleaning your face, and if you have a pimple, treat it but don’t pop it.

Using the right skin products also keeps your skin in the pink and the aging process under control. Selecting suitable cleansers, toners, and moisturizers goes a long way toward keeping your skin moist and firm. 

We offer an unparalleled skincare line, ZOⓇ Skin Health, that gives your skin all the TLC it needs to stay dewy and youthful. 

3. Observe a nutrient-dense diet

Your body is truly a temple. When it comes to what you put in it, aim to eat a variety of whole foods, including a rainbow of fruits and veggies, and stay well hydrated. Trust us, your skin notices.

4. Shun tobacco

Not only does the puckering required to smoke a cigarette or vape pen leave you with wrinkles that emanate from your lips, smoking toxins contribute to the breakdown of collagen and elastin, the connective-tissue proteins that give your skin its elasticity and resilience.

And aside from your skin, smoking harms your body’s systems in countless other ways. 

5. Tame stress

Everyone faces stress in their lives, whether it’s a looming work deadline or an argument with their spouse. It’s how you manage it that’s key. Stress can cause skin sensitivity, breakouts, and other problems.

Spending time with a friend or doing something you love, getting good sleep, and adopting a mindfulness practice like meditation are all powerful ways to lessen stress. 

6. Invest in the right anti-aging treatments

Many people aren’t aware that a powerful arsenal of anti-aging treatments is available just by visiting their doctor’s office. These include noninvasive and minimally invasive treatments that subtract years from your face — without having to opt for plastic surgery, an anxiety-producing and expensive treatment choice.
