Women are not the only ones worried about the telltale signs of aging today. Men are also on the hunt for ways to ward off facial creases and other developments that make them look older than they feel. Fortunately, there are a number of steps men can take to stop or even reverse the clock to maintain their youthful vigor.
Skin Care 101
Age prevention begins with the products you use on your skin every day. From your cleansing routine to protecting your skin from the elements, you can do much to stop the signs of aging even before they begin. Your daily skin care regimen should include:
- Protection – sunscreen will prevent sun damage that causes many of the early signs of aging and also increases your risk for skin cancer
- Moisture – men’s skin is also vulnerable to dryness, so daily moisturizer with nutritional supplementation is a must to prevent free radical damage and keep skin soft and supple
- Exfoliation – outer skin cells become dry and dull, so removing those cells regularly will stimulate cell renewal and a refreshed appearance
While regular skin care is a must for keeping the symptoms of aging at bay, time and gravity will eventually begin to take their toll. When that occurs, there are a number of minimally-invasive treatments that can reverse those symptoms in the early stages. Injectable treatments smooth away facial lines, while other treatments offer effective skin firming to add definition to areas like the jawline. In many cases, you can achieve desired results in a single procedure without discomfort or downtime to slow down your daily routine.
