Do you ever wonder why some women (and men) look so eternally radiant and youthful? While there are more people dabbling in cosmetic surgery, there are some things that even a surgeon’s scalpel cannot simulate. Naturally flawless, healthy-looking skin.

Thankfully there are some proven ways we can give our skin the leg up when it comes to looking their best.

#1 Decrease Inflammation

A lot of the aging process comes from inflammationsigns of which include uneven tone, wrinkles, saggy skin, breakouts. Decreasing inflammation can obviously have a big impact on the overall look of your skin. Some of the actions that can promote inflammation include sunbathing and picking at your zits.

To decrease inflammation on our skin, first and foremost start with a good sunscreen. We like a light, water-based spray on mineral sunscreen because it’s non-comedogenic and can be worn all day even for combination skin types. Supplements such as turmeric can decrease inflammation and it may be worthwhile investing in turmeric supplements if this is not an abundant ingredient in your existing diet. Finally, LED photobiomodulation therapy such as LED Red can reduce and soothe skin inflammation, promote skin healing and as such is an important part of the anti-aging arsenal. It’s frequently employed in certain clinical facials to rejuvenate dull weakened skins.

If there is one supplement you should be taking to get supple, plump, hydrated skin, fish oil/Omega 3 is it. Omega 3 fatty acids strengthen cell membranes, which ensures they perform their vital functions such as nutrient uptake, waste removal and ability to hold water optimally. Another notable supplement is probiotics. Choose one that not only benefit the gut flora but also skin flora as well. Studies have shown that probiotics may help improve the skin of eczema and acne sufferers by balancing their good and bad bacteria balance, boosting their natural defences against skin problems.

The less skin issues you have to contend with, the more well-maintained your skin will be as you weather the ravages of time. Aging gracefully is about minimizing problems and optimizing outcomes!

#3 Topical Vitamins for Glow

Those of you who wondered why we didn’t include vitamins and antioxidants under the supplements category, here’s why. When it comes to the skin, studies have shown that topical vitamins and antioxidants may make more of a direct impact. We totally recommend a topical vitamin c of at least 8% and above every day. It promotes collagen production and skin brightening effects when used over time. Pair this with niacinamide (vitamin B) and retinol (vitamin A) for anti-aging benefits you won’t regret.

Those who just cannot find time for a consistent topical vltamin regimen, consider getting your regular doses of vitamins with a in-clinic facial therapy called Vitamin Therapy. It infuses potent vitamins into the dermis so your skin is recharged and revitalized.

#4  Treat with Lasers

There are just some things that prayers and creams alone won’t do. Melasma is a deep, hormonal pigmentation that is particularly prevalent in Asians. Pico laser is an effective way to combat such stubborn pigmentation to return your skin to its flawless state. If you have acne scars left behind, then you would know that almost nothing will make a difference to their appearance apart from lasers such as Fraxel Dual and SmartX. Finally, if you can afford it, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with giving your complexion the added boost with skin enhancing lasers such as BB Aquatouch.

#5  A Good Shuteye

Catching up on her beauty sleep

Sleep deprivation affects wound healing, collagen growth, skin hydration, and skin texture. Studies have shown that sleep plays a role in restoring the immune system function and that sleep deprivation affect collagen production. So there is a direct link between how much we sleep and how our skin looks and behaves. It’s probably better to get an extra hour of sleep than to lather on a tub of face cream.

While sleeping one hour less a day may not make a noticeable difference in the short term, over time, the cumulative damage to your skin becomes more obvious… and irreversible.
