4 Healthy Skin Tips for a More Youthful Appearance

The healthy, dewy glow of youth doesn’t have to fade away as you grow older. In fact, by sticking with a few smart habits and stocking up on the right cosmetics, your skin can be a true showstopper no matter your age.

At Ooh La La Spa, Anti-aging & Wellness, our providers can help you develop a regimen that presses the pause button on aging. From the science-based Colorescience® and SkinMedica® skincare lines we carry to the Fountain Club treatment plans we offer, protecting your skin has never been easier or produced such beautiful results.

Our philosophy focuses on 5 factors:

  • Skincare
  • Collagen Stimulation
  • Injectables
  • Nutrition
  • Body

Whether you’re still in your early 20s or entering your 40s and 50s, here are four simple ways to keep your skin healthy and youthful:

  1. Make moisture your mantra. Healthy skin’s greatest nemesis is dehydration. To defend your skin against its drying effects, start from the inside out. Experts recommend drinking at least eight glasses of water each day and filling up on foods with a high water content, like cucumbers and strawberries. Cranking up your humidifier and turning down the thermostat can reduce the dryness in the air. In addition to using a moisturizer, such as SkinMedica’s Dermal Repair, Rejuvenative, or Ultra Sheer Moisturizers, consider enhancing your routine with a rejuvenating hydrator. SkinMedica® HA5® helps your body restore its natural levels of hyaluronic acid for smoother, softer skin and a diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Single out the right sunscreen. Sun protection should be part of your daily routine, every day of the year. Colorescience Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ packs SPF 50 defense in both a weightless cream and a brush-on option. Unlike most commercial products, the Colorescience formula is a physical sunscreen, not a chemical one, meaning that instead of absorbing into the skin, the lotion forms a protective layer on top of the epidermis, reflecting harmful UV rays away from the body. By applying Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ along with Colorescience’s other skincare products, you get even greater protection against infrared radiation, pollution and blue light from handheld devices.
  3. Take another look at your makeup. Sometimes the very thing we use to improve our complexion actually leaves it looking worse. Many powders and concealers exaggerate wrinkles or cake on top on dry skin. However, the Colorescience skin enhancers mineral makeup line of breathable lip shines, color palettes, luminators, bronzers, and mascara is free of chemicals, dyes, and talc so it doesn’t clog pores or settle into fine lines, helping you hold on to that just-applied look all day.
  4. Houdini those little imperfections. Sun exposure, age, and genetics can all leave their mark on your face. But the right treatment can make those marks disappear for the day and even improve your skin’s color and texture over time. Colorescience’s All Calm® Corrector neutralizes redness and soothes sensitive skin while its lightweight Even Up® Clinical Pigment Perfector brightens dull skin, diminishes discoloration and erases brown age spots. They both also protect against future sun damage and environmental stressors with an SPF 50 and should be used daily as your makeup and 1st layer of protection.
