The New Year is a great time to reaffirm our commitment to healthy habits. Committing yourself to a program that keeps your skin healthy can help prevent skin cancer, while also helping you retain a youthful and energetic appearance. In this post, the Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton share the best New Year resolutions for younger-looking skin.
Sunscreen isn’t just for trips to the beach. Wear sunscreen anytime you’re out in the sun to avoid wrinkles and reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. Be sure to cover spots that are commonly missed like the eyelids and ears.
Stop smoking for your skin’s sake. If you’ve tried to quit smoking before and failed, maybe you need some new motivation. Quit smoking to prevent your skin from aging prematurely and developing a dull, puffy appearance.
See Your Dermatologist
Do you have a lingering skin problem such as acne, rosacea or dry skin? See your dermatologist, and you may find that nagging skin problems can be quickly fixed with the right treatment. While you’re there, you should have a full-body scan performed to check for skin cancer or other abnormalities. Catching problems early on can prevent minor issues from becoming more serious.
Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables is good for your skin and the rest of your body. Avoiding processed foods — even ones that seem “healthy” — can help you reduce inflammation, which is the cause of many health problems, including skin problems.
Consider Non-invasive Skin Procedures
Botox and other non-invasive skin procedures are effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and giving your face a more youthful appearance. If you’re concerned that the effects of aging have given your face a tired or unapproachable appearance, you should talk to an experienced cosmetic surgeon about your options for achieving a more rested and relaxed facial appearance.
