If you’re noticing more signs of aging every time you look in the mirror, you might be wondering if it’s time for a face lift. Plastic surgery is a proven way to remove some of those signs, and gain a more youthful appearance. But are there alternatives that don’t involve surgery? Here are some tips if you’re looking for effective ways to get a smoother, younger-looking complexion.
Facial creams and serums
There are products you can buy which are effective for tightening the skin, and making your complexion look both brighter and younger. Some of the key ingredients that can be effective in this area are glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, topical antioxidants, and creams with vitamin A or retinol. These ingredients make your skin feel smoother, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Some of the substances hydrate your skin, and boost collagen growth and skin cell renewal.
Your face has a layer of muscles underlying your skin. Just like the rest of your body, these muscles can be toned through exercise, and the theory behind this technique is that untoned muscles lead to sagging skin and increased wrinkles. Some experts say that targeted toning exercises give your face more firmness and elasticity. People spend hours in the gym each week toning their body, and just a few minutes each day exercising your face could give you a younger look that everyone will notice.
Thread veins on the face – an aging sign?
Thread veins are better known as small blood vessels that appear close to the skin’s surface. They look like thin lines and are red or purple. Commonly known as “broken veins” or “spider veins”, they appear on the legs and face. As we get older, our skin becomes less elastic (as well as our blood vessels). In women, thread veins that appear on the face, especially on the nose and cheeks, make the whole complexion look aged. Fortunately, there are ways of getting rid of them.
Rather than opt for dreadful surgical procedures and undergo a lot of pain, it’s certainly a better idea to assess other options, too. Facial exercises and tightening serums may help restore your skin’s elasticity, as well as daily moisturizers, creams, lotions, and laser therapy, which by the way is painless and has long-lasting effects.
