We all dream of flawless, youthful skin and face. But, as we age our complexion loses its brightness, and wrinkles make a definitive appearance. There is good news though; a good anti-aging regimen can make all the difference, giving your face a bright, appealing look. There are numerous treatment options available today, and it is important to pick the one that works for you.

Invest in spa treatment

The first rule of a great complexion is retaining its elasticity, vitality and removing dirt regularly. Today, a large number of cosmetic spas around provide various treatments to keep your skin glowing and healthy. You need to find a spa that offers medical, facial treatment tailored to your skin type. Try a place such as the Clinique La Prairie Bangkok to see if they work for you. It is advisable to pick a beautician with the necessary experience and skills for the regime that works for your skin type. A good facial also adds to your overall health and wellbeing.

Understand your specific concerns

Anti-aging products are like ice cream flavours, there are innumerable varieties, but not all are going to be your cup of tea. Using multiple products indiscriminately can do more harm than good. The wrong combination of products can make you look older than you actually are. When you pick your cosmetic products, cleansers etc. do it in consultation with your beautician.

Choose a retinoid based cream or serum

Retinoids are your trusted source to fight fine lines, pores and even dark spots. You can choose between a cream and serum depending on your skin type. This is why it is important to consult an expert. Rerinoid creams are best suited for dry skin, while serum works well for skin covered in clogged pores and acne. In addition, stay away from products that contain artificial preservers.

Always wear sunscreen to protect your skin

We cannot emphasize this fact enough. Sun damage causes your skin to lose its elasticity, get age spots, wrinkles and dry out, making it age faster. You can prevent this particular threat by using a good sunscreen. Pick a water resistant brand that offers SPF over 30, and offers protection against UVA and UVB rays. If your skin type tends to be on the sensitive side, avoid sunscreen that contains fragrance, alcohol and preservatives.

Don’t skip the patch test

You cannot know what kind of reaction a product will have on your skin without using it. Anti-aging products are usually intended for your face. However, it is a good idea to do a patch test before you apply it on your face. You can apply the product on a small patch of your skin on a place like the forearm, and leave it for 24 hours. If your skin doesn’t show any adverse reaction, you can safely use the product on your face.

Consider more advanced treatment

As we age, crow’s feet, blotchy skin, under eye bags and age spots tend to make us look a little weary for wear. Fortunately, there are plenty of safe cosmetic care options available to address these issues and make your skin look rejuvenated and healthy. While most of these treatment options are safe, you need to decide on the right type for your skin and particular problem with an experienced dermatologist. First of all, speak to your beautician and ask their take on what would work for you and what would be unnecessary. Once you have a clear idea of what type of cosmetic procedures you wish to undergo, consult a licensed dermatologist and medical team. Prepare yourself mentally and physically for the task and hand.

Good luck!
