If looking your best is a priority, you’re not alone. The average woman might spend $300,000 plus on beauty products in her lifetime.
Makeup and skin care can have a positive effect on our appearances, but what treatments make the biggest impact? Read on to find the secrets on how you can look ten years younger.
Chemical peels contain a combination of lactic, glycolic, salicylic, and alpha hydroxy acids. These ingredients are common in rejuvenating at-home facial products but are applied in much more potent concentrations for a facial peel.
Chemical exfoliation can aid in reducing sun spots, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and more.
As we age, our skin plumpness and elasticity decreases. Lips, smile lines, under-eye areas, and other target facial features can lose volume and betray our age.
Facial fillers made of ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, botox, and collagen. Depending on where they are injected, they can plump facial areas or help minimize wrinkles.
Filler under eyes is a quick way to reduce the look of tired eyes. MyBotoxLA says filler services usually last for 6-12 months before requiring any maintenance.
Retinoids are potent chemical exfoliants that help aid in cellular turnover. Often used to help treat acne, this class of chemicals can also help turn back the signs of aging by improving the skin’s texture and tone.
Retinol is the over-the-counter version, which contains less potent ingredients. Stronger retinoids, such as Retin-A, are available as a prescription from your dermatologist.
Retinoids slow the collagen breakdown of the skin. By helping increase skin thickness, products containing retinoids help reduce and prevent wrinkles as well.
Sourced in Morocco, argan oil has a high content of fatty acids and is a superfood for your skin. High in the powerful antioxidant Vitamin E, this miracle oil helps fight off free radicals that can speed up the signs of aging.
Skin becomes drier as we age, so replenishing that natural moisture barrier is essential to keep skin looking youthful and hydrated.
For a smoother complexion, microdermabrasion is an inexpensive treatment that provides instant results. A clinician uses an exfoliating wand to slough away dead skin, bumps, and other imperfections to create a radiant glow.
A bonus of Microderm treatments is that they prep the skin to better absorb moisturizers and chemical peels. For those who want to try it at home, PMD makes a personal microdermabrasion kit that includes an instructional DVD and attachments for the face and body.
