Unquestionably, our Arizona dry winters are hard on the skin. And, our summer sunshine is even harsher. There are several things you can do in the spring to rejuvenate your skin so that you go into summer looking refreshed with tighter, smoother, healthier looking skin on your face and neck.
Harness Your Skin’s Own Chemistry
Both the Quantum Hydration Therapy and BioLift Therapy provided by the Prescott DermaLift Clinic work with your body’s own chemistry to tighten, tone and refine skin. Negative ions and saline exist in nature and in our bodies; however, the QHT supercharges the ions with saline to stimulate collagen from the sub-dermis with no down time. Scars and other imperfections are much improved. The cold saline mist is the only therapy other than just moisturizers that is safe to go inside the eye socket to reduce bags under the eyes and lift the brow.
Our cells also contain an electrical charge that diminishes with age. The BioLift Therapy, to stimulate and tone muscles in the face and neck, diminishes lines and wrinkles and tightens sagging skin. As you grow older, the electrical impulses to your cells decrease. BioLift reinvigorates lost electrical charges that create youthful looking skin.
Both therapies are non-toxic and non-invasive, with no downtime.
Don’t Forget the Décolleté
While wrinkles can develop on any part of your body, cleavage, chest or décolleté wrinkles can be especially distressing and difficult to prevent.
Because the skin on your upper chest is sensitive, thin and delicate, this area is especially susceptible to the signs of aging. Even though the appearance of chest wrinkles is a natural part of aging, that doesn’t make it any less upsetting. And it doesn’t mean that you can’t take action to treat and prevent them. This one of the most affordable things a woman can do to look more youthful.
The good news is that the methods for treating and preventing cleavage wrinkles are one in the same.
Both the Quantum Hydration and BioLift Therapies will improve the appearance of the décolleté an area that many consider hopeless. The same process that tightens and tones skin on the face and neck is effective in reducing wrinkling in this area.
Remove Dry Dead Skin
The DermaPlane treatment is an affordable quick fix when going into summer to remove dark spots and dead skin cells. Dermaplaning is a super effective exfoliating treatment in which a blade is used to gently scrape off any dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and (along with the peach fuzz on your face). You might be wondering, “Why is this necessary?” It’s because the build–up of dead skin and microscopic hairs can make your complexion appear dull and flaky, and can even cause breakouts from clogged pores and hair follicles, which is why this form of mechanical exfoliation is essential for maintaining an even, healthy glow.
Exercise and Other Life Habits
It’s hardly news that exercise is great for your heart, lungs and mental outlook. Here’s another reason to get moving: Regular exercise is one of the keys to healthy skin.
“We tend to focus on the cardiovascular benefits of physical activity, and those are important. But anything that promotes healthy circulation also helps keep your skin healthy and vibrant,” explained dermatologist Ellen Marmur, M.D., author of Simple SkinHYPERLINK “https://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/ss/slideshow-skin-and-health”: Every Woman’s Guide to a Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous Skin and associate professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
Simple life habits that can help to maintain the health of your skin include:
- Drinking ample amounts of water
- Wearing sun screen even when the sun isn’t out
- Eating a healthy diet high in protein and rich in antioxidants and vitamins such as Vitamin C
- Reducing stress and make sure the quality and quantity of sleep is sufficient
- Not smoking
- Drinking alcohol only in moderation.
