6 Ways to Look Younger

Woman Looking in the Mirror and ThinkingSometimes catching a glimpse of yourself in the mirror can get you down. These quick tips and tricks can help you to take a few years off of your look instantly, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!

1. Try a New Hairstyle

Freshening up your look with a new hairstyle can be a quick, easy and affordable way to change up your appearance. The right haircut from a skilled stylist help you to look and feel years younger!

2. Brighten Up Your Makeup

A little bit of makeup can go a long way! Adding a little bit of shimmer and a pop of color to your regular routine can help you subtly turn back the clock a bit. Experiment with highlighting your cheekbones, using subtle blush or bronzer on the apples of your cheeks and brightening up your lips and eyes with playful shades.

3. Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles

If the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face has you feeling down, there are a number of treatment options to consider. Botox Cosmetic treatments are a popular option, commonly used to reduce the appearance of lines around the eyes and between the brows. Treatments like chemical peels not only enhance the texture and tone of the skin—they also help the skin to look and act younger over time and help to diminish a host of visible skin imperfections including fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, acne bumps and even scarring.

Dr. Garcia also recommends incorporating topical Retinols and Growth Factors to your anti-aging skin care regimen. Our SkinMedica Retinol Complex helps to renew the skin and improve its texture and tone without causing the irritation common with many other retinol products. Growth Factors are the proteins responsible for rejuvenating skin and stimulating collagen and elastic production. Our SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum has the highest concentration of growth factors at 93.6%, while most other products only contain 10%.

4. Restore Volume Loss

Youthful faces tend to have one thing in common: volume. This look of fullness results from skin having the necessary structural support to look smooth and supple, and to reflect light. One of the first facial areas to be affected by volume loss is the cheek area. Volume loss in the cheeks can cause the formation of nasolabial folds, the folds that appear around your nose and mouth as you age.

Treatment options for restoring volume loss include Juvederm Voluma, an FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss. Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus is another option, the first and only non-surgical hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly smooth moderate to severe wrinkles around your nose and mouth. Other non-injectable treatments, like Micro-needling, rejuvenate the skin and not only improve the appearance of fine lines, but stimulate collagen production.

5. Nourish Your Skin

Having radiant, healthy skin is key if you want to maintain a youthful look. Adding foods that are good for your skin to your diet can help keep your complexion fresh and youthful. Keeping your skin hydrated and blemish-free with medical grade skin care products can also help to rekindle your skin’s youthful appearance. 

6. Exercise Regularly

Staying healthy by exercising regularly can help you to keep looking – and feeling – youthful! Maintaining an active lifestyle will help you to stay healthy and age gracefully. Still, we all know that as we get older, it becomes harder to maintain the physique we’d like. If you’re craving a slimmer look, consider options like CoolSculpting, which can improve body contours and reduce fat-prone areas of the body.

With these fast and easy tips and tricks, you can refresh your appearance and look younger instantly. Add these into your regular beauty routine and you can keep looking and feeling your best, even as you age!
