Everyone wants to look and feel younger. How many “29th birthday parties” have you been to for your friends, family or coworkers who had their 29th birthday for the last 8 years? Our obsession with looking younger and healthier can make some men and women go to extremes to fight their natural aging, sometimes to their own detriment.
However, you don’t have to go under the knife to get a more vibrant face that can better reflect the age you feel inside. Here are three alternatives to plastic surgery that can help you look and feel younger almost instantly.
A close friend to surgery, injectable treatment products can give you the results you want with minimal recovery time. These minimally invasive procedures can help you to gently turn back the hands of time by filling out your face and brightening up your complexion.
There are quite a few options for injectables on the market today. Some of the most common and well-tested include BOTOX, JUVEDERM, DYSPORT, Sculptra and Radiesse. These products can help make your skin look more youthful by diminishing lines and wrinkles, plumping up your eye and cheek areas, and smoothing out the surface of your face. Consult with your doctor to see which option will be most beneficial for you.
Less invasive than injectables is a treatment called Microdermabrasion. According to HowStuffWorks.com, Microdermabrasion uses tiny, rough particles or grains to buff away the top layer of your skin, leaving you with smoother, more youthful looking skin. The top layer of the skin is where the fine lines and wrinkles show up, making the removal of this layer helpful for making your skin appear younger. There are multiple ways you can get a microdermabrasion, including at a salon, by a physician, or by yourself in your own home.
Focus on the Skin
The least invasive of all three of these options is to just focus on your skin with topical products. This won’t require going to a doctor for assistance or causing any pain to your skin.
As your skin ages, it needs a different kind of attention than it may have gotten in the past. FoxNews Magazine recommends a five step process for showing off younger skin. Step one is to hydrate and protect your skin, step two is to color correct your skin with CC cream, step three is choose the right foundation, step four is to illuminate your skin the right way, and step five is to add blush to liven up your skin. This process can make your skin look 10 years younger in just 10 minutes without harsh chemicals or surgeries.
You can have a younger, healthier and happier face without spending thousands of dollars and hours and hours of recovery time. These three options will all help you look and feel lively and get you back to your routine in no time.
