Aging is an inevitable reality of life, and it is not a scary or negative thing but a blessing! It is possible to age gracefully, and there are ways to keep your skin looking youthful longer.


The three primary principles to consider are prevention, maintenance, and treatment. These factors play an essential role in your skin's overall health, and today we'll take a deep dive into each one.


Prevention

When it comes to keeping your skin youthful and healthy, prevention is the key!


Imagine a blank sheet of printer paper. It's bright, smooth, and pristine.

Unfortunately, once that paper has been folded or crumpled, there's no way to restore it to its original state. It's similar to how the skin works.


Once it is damaged, it isn't easy to reverse it. Unfortunately, no treatment, product, or device will miraculously restore your skin to its previous state, and it will take a lot of work and time to reduce the damage inflicted. Instead, prevention is critical in keeping your skin looking and feeling its best!


Always wear sunscreen!


Most premature aging is caused by unprotected exposure to the sun, and it is single-handedly the quickest way to damage your skin. The harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun cause damage to the skin on a deep cellular level.


Unfortunately, the damage may take years to appear on the skin, and it can be too late when it does!


Always protect your skin by wearing sunscreen daily.


If you live in a sunny or humid climate, wear a hat and sunglasses to protect your skin. Even if you live in the coldest or cloudiest environment, you should still commit to applying sunscreen daily!


If you live in an area with heavy pollution, we recommend GlyMed Plus's Photo-Age Environmental Protection Gel 30+. The gel is infused with antioxidants to protect your skin from environmental pollutants.


If you're looking for a moisturizer and sunscreen hybrid, we recommend GlyMed Plus's Photo Age Sunscreen 30+. It will hydrate the skin and prevent it from drying out while providing excellent sun protection!



Build a preventative skincare regimen!


If you don't have any major skin concerns, try to keep it that way! To keep your skin in good condition, dedicate time to properly taking care of it. Wash your face daily, identify and treat your skincare concerns, and keep your skin moisturized!


Maintenance

Maintaining your skin's health is the second most effective way to age gracefully. When it comes to skincare, maintenance is the phase where you will actively work to target your skin concerns to prevent the decline of your body's production of elastin and collagen.


Know your skin type and choose the right products!


It's crucial to identify your skin type and your skin's specific needs so that you can treat it accordingly.


I recommend choosing skincare products that have active ingredients.


Active ingredients are components in a skincare product that will target and treat your specific concerns on a deeper level. Some of the best active ingredients for maintenance are retinol, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.


Are you noticing fine lines and wrinkles?


I highly recommend GlyMed Plus's Facial Hydrator and Retinol Restart Serum.

This fast-absorbing serum will stimulate collagen production and skin cell regeneration to reduce visible signs of aging.


If you're noticing fine lines under the eyes, try GlyMed Plus's Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream and CBD Regenerative Eye Cream.


Are you noticing a loss in firmness?


GlyMed Plus's Super Protein Face Lift Masque has a blend of potent vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and protein to tighten and firm the skin.


Consistency is key!


Remember – there is no magic product that will immediately make your concerns disappear after a single use. If you want to see actual results, consistency and diligence are key!


Repair

It's better late than never!

If you're looking to minimize the look of damage that has accumulated over the years, you will require more intense products and treatments. It's not impossible to reduce the visible signs of aging.


Choose the right products!

If you have not developed an effective skincare routine, you must do so. As the skin ages, the body's collagen and elastin production declines, and this deterioration of the skin's vital building blocks causes the appearance of deeper lines, wrinkles, and sagging.


In addition to looking for products that contain active ingredients such as retinol, hyaluronic acid, and peptides, you should also seek super hydrating products.


We recommend GlyMed Plus's DNA Face & Neck Cream.


This rich recovery cream contains epidermal growth factors and advanced active ingredients that will work to repair the skin on a deeper level.
