Aging Skin: Myths Versus Facts

Posted December 24, 2015

There may be a salon on every street corner in Manhattan touting a miracle cream to cure wrinkles, but for many New Yorkers who want younger looking skin, it’s hard to determine which treatments will actually make a difference in ridding skin of fine lines and wrinkles. Rather than simply rolling the dice and hoping for the best, we’re here to bust some of the most pervasive myths about aging skin and how to keep it looking fabulous.

Sun exposure will give you a youthful glow: While a subtly sunlit glow does look good on everyone, the notion that baking in the sun will keep your skin looking youthful is way off base. UV rays not only increase your risk of skin cancer, they also prematurely dry and age skin, causing crow’s feet, wrinkles, and an uneven complexion over time. Instead, opt for a spray tan or just add a bit of bronzer to your routine and make sure to protect your skin against sun damage, whether you’re dabbing on sunscreen or using makeup with sun protection built in.

The only way to stop fine lines and wrinkles is with plastic surgery: Celebrities may extol the virtues of injectable fillers, but for those of us who aren’t keen on having our faces poked and prodded by needles, there are gentler ways to turn back time. Flawless Skin Care Solutions’ Nu Skin Galvanic Spa Facial System gives users younger-looking skin through potent yet painless electrotherapy.

Ingredients that treat breakouts will only make wrinkles worse: While the harsh acne-fighting treatments you used as a teen may not work for aging skin, that doesn’t mean you can’t kill two birds with one stone if you’re dealing with an aging complexion and breakouts at the same time. Say so long to ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid and welcome hyaluronic acid, like that in the Dorothy Facial Mask, into your skincare routine. The pre-moistened facial mask’s hyaluronic acid serum will not only help tone down redness and breakouts, it also promotes collagen production and tells your body to rush moisture to the skin, helping to fill out fine lines and wrinkles naturally and in just fifteen minutes.

Fighting the signs of aging skin doesn’t have to be an uphill battle — with a little bit of information and a few good products, you can see younger skin in no time.
