There’s no doubt about it – our skin changes with age. While the rest of our body is filling out, our skin becomes thinner, loses fat, loses its elasticity, and is no longer as plump and smooth as it once was. That’s when we realize we should have started an anti-aging routine years ago!
As your skin ages, our body shows signs of collagen loss. You can also experience
- dry skin
- age spots
- skin tags
So how do you keep your skin healthy as you age?
My advice is – as a first step – to be aware of how you treat your skin.
- Are you exposing it to the harsh rays of the sun?
- Are you using sunscreen daily?
- Are you consistently tanning?
These habits will directly affect how fast your skin ages. Some tips for healthier skin include:
- Limit time in the sun, especially during peak times.
- Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 45+ 15 to 30 minutes before you go outside, with reapplication every 2 hours.
- Wear a hat with a wide brim to protect your neck, ears, eyes, and head – and loose, lightweight, long-sleeved shirts and long pants or long skirts.
- Use a daily antioxidant.
A Daily Antioxidant I Recommend
ZO® Skin Health offers a fabulous anti-aging solution for all aging concerns. Their Firming Serum is a base product for all of their anti-aging protocols. It improves skin’s appearance, firmness, and elasticity. It also supports the skin’s ability to keep its structural integrity and shape with massive hydration.
Even though it’s a powerhouse, ZO’s Firming Serum is gentle and lightweight and is ideal for all skin types.
When you’re ready, Firming Serum can be paired with other products like Daily Power Defense to restore hydration, smoothness, and overall skin health synergistically.
Incorporating Firming Serum into your routine can also support in-office anti-aging treatments. ZO offers Firming Serum Accelerated. This is a highly concentrated add-on that can maximize the anti-aging benefits of a variety of treatments, including microneedling. It provides visible improvements in skin laxity, as well as a flash filler effect that offers intense hydration benefits that reinforce your skin health.
