Everyone ages. It’s a natural process that is part of our lives. As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin. This causes the skin to lose its firmness which leads to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Although this is a natural phenomenon, some people might feel self-conscious of them as they believe fine lines and wrinkles cause one to look tired.
The best strategy to slow down the appearance of fine lines is to take proactive steps in delaying skin ageing. Sun exposure is one of the main contributing factors to skin ageing. Therefore, sun protection in the form of topical sunscreens or oral supplements can help to slow down the process. Diet and genetics play a part as well in determining the speed and extent of one’s skin ageing. It is therefore important to keep a healthy and well-balanced diet to ensure that our skin gets the necessary nutrients so it can stay looking supple and firm longer. Dehydration of the skin can exacerbate the appearance of fine lines too. As such, a good skincare regime is also important so we can keep our skin well hydrated and moisturised.
The above preventive measures will not be sufficient if you already have fine lines on your skin. The good news is that there are treatments that can help boost the hydration of your skin and stimulate collagen growth. These could effectively improve the appearance of fine lines. At NU.U Clinic, we offer several of such treatments that can be customised to best address your concern and needs.
