Pollution, sun exposure, skin damage and ageing can all affect your skin’s appearance. Over time, the skin’s elasticity reduces and it begins to sag. The good news is that there are a variety of non-surgical techniques that can be used to significantly slow down this natural process.
Improve your diet
The food you eat has a direct impact upon your skin’s appearance. If you consume a diet high in salt and processed foods, your skin is likely to age more rapidly. Eat plenty of nutrient-rich fruit and vegetables. The high water content, vitamins and minerals will keep your skin tight and radiant. Avoid alcohol, which can dehydrate the skin and accelerate ageing. Try to include food with a high omega-3 content, such as oily fish, or consider taking a fish oil supplement. Omega-3 is an essential nutrient for skin rejuvenation, and has been found to prevent dehydration at the cellular level. Ensuring that your skin cells are full of moisture will prevent the appearance of fine lines, and promote skin tightness.
Drink plenty of water
Most people do not drink enough water, and you should ensure that you’re taking in the minimum recommended 8 glasses per day. Although incredibly simple, this is one of the most effective at home remedies for youthful, radiant skin. As well as tightening the skin around your face, getting more than the recommended amount of water each day will flush out toxins, keeping the skin healthy.
Consider professional treatments
There are a number of professional, non-surgical treatments that can be used to jump start your skin tightening mission. For example, the thermage skin tightening procedure is a safe and effective way to achieve younger looking skin. This procedure uses a radio frequency device to stimulate your existing collagen, which in turn tightens the skin. It also encourages the growth of new collagen, providing you with results that can last a number of months after the treatment. This procedure has risen in popularity recently, with a number of celebrities using this technique to keep their skin looking tight and youthful.
