Get enough sleep
One of the favorite way to keep yourself young. Actually when you sleep your body does its best to remove impurities and detox your body. Increased fresh blood flow to your skin means healthy skin free from stress and improved cell repair.
On the other case if you don’t sleep, the stress hormone “cortisol” level increases and if this goes on and on it reaches an alarming level and results in skin inflammation and irritation. You guessed right, itchy skin and irritation which in turn disturbs your happy sleep cycle and what, the chain reaction starts again.
During the night your body’s melatonin levels rise to make you feel tired and move to the bed and which in turn helps your skin to heal itself through the night.
Yes, hit your body’s snooze button before 10 pm.
Get rid of stress

Quick Recap & Fast Tips
Will Moisturizers Help me prevent wrinkles?
Moisturizers and sunscreen are different and using only moisturizers won’t help you to erase wrinkles. You can choose moisturizers with sunscreen and antioxidant-rich lotions to help in this case.
Are laser therapy and abrasion is safe and effective?
Both laser and dermabrasion therapies are safe and each follows a different procedure to dust off the outer most layer. Which is good to remove dead cells, tattoos, mole, and acne scars.
After the outer layer is removed, the skin cells in the dermis layer get stimulated and result in a firm and soft skin. But, both the therapies need multiple sessions and it takes weeks to get rid of the redness and swelling.
Botox procedure and effectiveness against wrinkles
Botox is a neuro protein used for various cases and for wrinkles, it controls the contracting muscles. The muscles under the skin tighten to its best and finally gives a smooth skin texture free from wrinkles.
For this procedure, Botox is injected into targeted muscles where you need the wrinkle lines to be erased and the result is temporary and you need another session in 15 – 20 weeks. As of my view, it comes with a price tag and side effects.
What are microcurrents and how long do they last for wrinkles?
Microcurrent facial treatment is great for aging skin and for people who are looking for a natural facelift free from invasive procedures and surgeries to youthful skin free from large pores and wrinkle lines.
Low-level current stimulates the enhancement at the cellular level and helps to firm the sagging skin and erase off wrinkles. This microcurrent treat is not for epidermis or layers, it works on muscles just like a gym and makes it firm and helps to regain elasticity with boosted collagen production.
This is series of treatment requires a maintenance session for every 40 – 60 days and with monthly maintenance, it can last for years
