Skin Elasticity - Experts Tip To Maintain It For Long

Youthful and glowing skin is a desire that never ceases to be fulfilled no matter how much of a skincare routine we follow. Did you know that collagen and elastin are the two proteins needed to maintain skin's elasticity, suppleness, tightness, and volume. Starting from our twenties, skin specialists agree that as we begin to age the collagen production diminishes by roughly 1% per year. And it is imperative to know how to protect our skin, maintain its elasticity and ensure proper care. In this blog, we have put together some expert tips on skincare from the best skin experts in bangalore.

When should you start skincare?

There is no right age as such to begin with a skin care routine. Advisably, the sooner, the better. Roughly around the age of teens , it is better to start with the basics, such as a light cleanser, moisturizer, care of acne and sunscreen.

You should have a strict skincare routine to follow by your early twenties, adding to which you can start integrating anti-aging products as well. As you approach your 30s, you can begin to incorporate retinol and retinoid products into your anti-aging skincare regimen.

Lifestyle changes for youthful, glowing skin.

Treatments and products are always at the forefront of your skincare. However, according to the best skin expert in Hyderabad, simple lifestyle changes can also make a huge difference in your skin’s appearance and overall health.

Food for healthy skin

Elastin may be replenished in your skin by eating foods like greens, fatty salmon, citrus fruits, broccoli, almonds, and walnuts. Aloe vera, cucumber, green tea, amla, ginseng, and cinnamon are among herbs that aid in increasing skin elastin.

Simplify your skincare routine

According to Dr Sandhya Bala, everyone should have a simple yet effective skincare regimen. You do not need an extensive and expensive 11-step routine always. A simple cleanse, moisturize, and sunscreen is enough when it comes to skincare. You can use other products to target specific concerns.

Quit smoking

Smoking causes your body to produce free radicals, which accelerate aging and elastosis. Free radicals damage your cells in their search for an electron.

Creams targeting anti-aging concerns

Here are some anti-aging secrets recommended by the best cosmetic surgeon in Hyderabad.

  • Retinol enriched serums - Vitamin A derivatives retinol and retinoids are key substances in anti-aging skincare. Topical treatments, such as serums and lotions, help with the skin cell turnover while increasing collagen and elastin levels.
  • Hyaluronic acid - It keeps skin moisturized. Using hyaluronic acid serums or lotions can help the skin restore its natural suppleness.
  • Bakuchiol - Bakuchiol is a natural, plant-based alternative to retinoid or retinol that helps increase skin cell turnover and stimulates collagen production for an even tone.
  • Coenzyme 10 - It energizes cell activities, reduces sun damage, evens out skin tone, stimulates collagen and elastin production, and replenishes skin cells. Coenzyme 10 creams can reduce skin collagen breakdown and prevent photo-aging damage.

Treatments to improve skin elasticity

  • Lasers - The epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, is the target of laser treatments. The majority of patients require three to five sessions, with changes appearing two to six months after the last treatment.
  • Vampire Facelift- A vampire facelift is directed to the lower eyelid and malar regions to reduce actinic elastosis.
  • Micro-Needling Radio Frequency (MNRF) - Also known as collagen induction therapy, is an impressive approach to enhancing elasticity. The procedure causes micro-injuries to the dermis to kick-start the skin's healing process, including collagen production.
  • Peels - Chemical peels are skin resurfacing and revitalization procedures done to help fight damage caused by pollution. Chemical peels can help to minimize photoaging and elastosis.
  • Fillers - Soft-tissue fillers like Juvederm Volite, Radiesse, Restylane, and Sculptra, can be injected to improve the skin's supple texture and adds volume to the face.
  • PDO Thread Lift - A thread lift is a technique that tightens and lifts your skin using a dissolvable suture. Newer PDO thread lifts are more effective at lifting sagging skin.
