How to Always Look Younger Than Your Actual Ageby Andy Cheng Director
We see the physiology of our skin change from oily, congested skin in teenagers to wrinkled, saggy skin in older people. It becomes clear how our skin is not spared by the ravages of time as we grow older.
Few of us are blessed with good skin. Most of us have to deal with oily skin with active acne in our teenage years. Although rarely affected by active acne, older people have to deal with saggy skin. It is a constant uphill battle when it comes to taking good care of our skin. Although, we wish we could achieve flawless complexion simply by washing our face twice a day with normal soap, beautiful skin does not come so naturally to most of us.
We speak to Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, one of the most popular aesthetic doctors in Singapore, to find out what are some things we can do to look our absolute best at every stage of our lives.
In Your 20’s: Calming Acne-Prone Skin
Popping pimples, thinking you can force all the debris out from the pores yourself is a misconception. You can be pushing the pus and bacteria deeper into the dermis, causing more severe damage, which could lead to permanent scarring.
Furthermore, your hands and fingernails may be contaminated and may introduce more bacteria in the broken skin.
Always make sure that you have a basic skincare regime that works well for you and should incorporate cleansing, hydration, and sun protection.
If time and budget permit, consider going for a deep cleansing facial treatment regularly to remove the debris that are lodged deep into the skin. For people plagued with stubborn acne that don’t seem to go away, an intensive acne treatment program will help clear the skin and reduce the inflammation.
In Your 30’s: Prevention is Better Than Cure
30's is the best time of your life. Your career is taking off and everything seems to fall into place. Your skin is still firm and smooth. Since the facial skin is still taut and (almost) wrinkle-free, there is no need to do anything, right? Wrong.
Even though your skin has not shown obvious signs of aging, you can bet that years of cumulative damage and slower cell turnover have started. Take a closer look and you may see little brown spots, fine lines, enlarged pores, eye bags, or dark eye circles appearing on your face.
This is the time to undergo some non-surgical anti-aging treatments to age-proof the skin so that you can look younger for a longer time. It is common knowledge that collagen and elastin fibers are essential for tighter, firmer skin. Boost your collagen production with Ultherapy Skin Lifting treatment or HIFU treatment.
In Your 40’s and Beyond: Intensive Skin Repair for Younger-Looking Skin
People in their 40’s and beyond have built their career and family. Everything in their lives is stable – except their skin. This is the the time your body and skin undergo major transformation. Skin hydration levels dip, hyperpigmentation of the skin becomes visible, and collagen level plunges.
Besides stepping up on your skincare regime with anti-aging creams, consider a one-time skin lifting treatment using dissolvable threads. These non-surgical skin lifting treatments are often called Silhouette Soft Thread Lift or PDO Thread Lift. Thread lift treatments visibly lift and reposition the skin to where they once were when you were in your 20s or 30s.
For people who are in need of intensive skin repair, Rejuran Healer is the perfect choice. Harnessing the DNA extract from salmon, it has been shown that it is an effective key ingredient for addressing aging skin by rejuvenating and repairing skin cells.
