Common Skincare Habits You Didn't Know Are Bad For You

by Andy Cheng Director

A large part of our lives is spent on trying out different overpriced skincare creams in the hope that the will rewind the aging process. Yet, we often forget that our lifestyle plays a very important role in determining how we age.

As we age, the quality of our skin declines. The level of collagen and elastin fibers reduce over the years, causing our skin to sag and become loose. Although making changes to your lifestyle is easier said than done, we list down some of the easiest things to do in order to achieve the greatest beneficial outcome for your skin. 


We speak to Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics who advises us on what are the little steps we can take to delay aging.


Smoking and its Effects


We all know how bad smoking is. It does not only destroy our organs, especially lungs, heart, and slows down the brain activity. But did you know that smoking also seriously damages your skin? 


It causes wrinkles and fine lines to appear faster and your skin to age prematurely. Smokers are easily identified by their sallow dullness, age spots, severely hydrated skin due to the lack of oxygen and the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin.


The moment you decide to stop smoking; you are not only lengthening your life but you are making your skin more resistant to premature aging. If you have already fallen prey to the negative effects of smoking, all is not lost.


Give your skin a boost with our unique Restylane SkinBoosters treatment. It increases the hydration under the skin by replacing moisture to the moisture-starved skin. By doing so, it smoothens out the skin texture, plumping up the skin, giving it a more luminous, translucent skin. 


Have Sufficient Sleep for Beautiful Skin


Not having enough sleep is one of the most common reasons for causing premature aging. Research has shown that sleep deprivation is strongly linked to aging skin. Several studies have indicated that a lack of sleep has a negative impact on memory and cognitive performance.


Recent studies have shown that it also accelerates skin aging. People who consistently sleep less than 8 hours a day may notice a decrease in the skin’s ability to recover from wounds and injury. Wrinkles, fine lines, dark eye circles, and eye bags also become more visible. Skin also sags more quickly than usual.

Rejuran Healer treatment is a unique age-reversal treatment that addresses aging at the cellular level. Using DNA extract obtained from salmon, small amounts are introduced into the superficial layers of the skin by reversing overall signs of aging by encouraging the repair of damaged skin cells.

In the past, the only way to address saggy skin was to undergo a surgical facelift treatment. With improvements in the non-surgical anti-aging front, doctors are able to lift the skin using thread lift treatment. One such popular thread lift treatment is Silhouette Soft Thread Lift. Such non-surgical thread lift treatment allows the face to gradually regain the natural plumpness by repositioning the skin. 


Alcohol Consumption and Its Effects


We all know that alcohol is known to act as a social lubricant. It is a nice way to unwind with a group of friends to boost people’s emotions and enhances bonding among people. The downside of consuming alcohol is that it is especially harsh on our complexion. It causes severe dehydration and enlarged pores, making your wrinkles more pronounced around the eyes and mouth.


The face can be immediately hydrated with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are highly versatile and it is possible to achieve a more youthful look by reversing signs of aging naturally. Using hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, a skilled and experienced aesthetic doctor is able to add smoothness to the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and restore lost volume at the same time.


At Radium Medical Aesthetics, we recognize that everyone’s skin is unique and therefore requires personalized care. We employ a very customized treatment program to address your beauty concerns and recommend the best treatment program that will benefit you most based on your budget.
