Morgan Paris Med Spa
This is your aging intervention...
You’re young. Your skin is wrinkle-free. The idea of anti-aging skin care isn’t even on your radar. But age happens. Like it or not. Ignore your skin and you’re on the fast train looking older that your age.
So what’s the game plan for stopping the first signs of aging?
Get cozy with antioxidants
These are the super-heroes of skin care, the valiant agents that protect cells from damage caused by unstable, reactive molecules known as free radicals. Free radicals occur as a result of oxidative stress on the body from exposure to things like environmental pollutants, UV radiation and smoking. These disruptors attach to collagen, elastin and sometimes DNA and lead to structural breakdown. The damage shows up as wrinkles, sagging skin, dark circles, dull skin, dryness; the signposts of aging. And it starts sooner than you think.
It’s impossible to avoid oxidative stress on the skin, but combatting it with antioxidant skin care is very doable.
Don’t wait to exfoliate
Cell turnover is the key to healthy, youthful glowing skin. As we age, cell turnover naturally slows and skin starts to dull, wrinkles form, and the bloom, as they say, is off. So it’s imperative to help the cell turnover process along. Good medical grade masks/scrubs/serums/enzymes/vitamin A, they are the powerhouse of anti-aging, working together to slough of dead skin cells, boost collagen production, restore elasticity, lighten dark spots, brighten skin tone and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
In your twenties, exfoliate to unclog pores and prevent breakouts. In your thirties, exfoliate to help stimulate collagen production and stave off the first fine lines and reverse photo-aging. In your forties and beyond, exfoliate to help reduce age spots, thicken and firm skin and reinvigorate your healthy, youthful glow. There’s something for every skin here at Morgan Paris.
You can do a lot on your own, but to really keep the signs of aging at bay, you need the help of a professional. A regular facial is indispensable. The pros have products and knowledge the average consumer doesn’t, so you’ll get higher-level results tailored to your specific needs. A professional facial is like a mini-facelift on the regular. Facial massage reduces wrinkle-inducing muscle tension and increases collagen-stimulating blood flow.
Hydrate inside and out
Skin is made up of cells, which are made up of water so drink plenty of water every day.
The science is more clear on exterior hydration. Skin dries out from exposure to dry air, sun, chlorinated water, drinking alcohol and no surprise, aging. You need to replace the moisture to avoid fine lines and wrinkles.
Don’t ignore the décolletage
When you’re young, it’s easy to forget that your face isn’t the only area that wrinkles with age. Put all your attention on the main attraction and you could wind up with a serious face to body beauty mismatch. The skin on your neck and décolletage is thinner and more delicate, which makes it more prone to wrinkles and sagging. It’s also an area that gets a lot of exposure to age-accelerating elements. So ignoring these areas is a big mistake.
When you’re applying anti-aging products to your face, take them a little southward to cover your neck and décolletage. That goes for the daily sunscreen as well. If you neglect these sensitive areas, they’ll age more rapidly than your face.
