Skin aging is a major factor that encourages people to seek out cosmetic enhancements. The natural aging process along with other things like sun exposure, stress, or improper diet can cause a loss of collagen in the skin. Even if you are not interested in surgical intervention, there are still several things you can do to help prevent or reduce the effects of skin aging.

It’s important to keep in mind that people with light skin or a fair complexion tend to show skin aging earlier than people with a dark complexion.

Rapid fat loss due to changes in diet or the processes of aging due to a change in overall muscle mass can sometimes give the skin a sallow appearance. This can also happen as a result of smoking or using other tobacco products. You should try to lose weight at a modest and consistent rate. If you are a smoker, you might want to talk to your primary physician about a cessation program that is right for you.

Anti-aging skin creams available at Togba Ellis Plastic Surgery are a non-invasive way to restore the luster of your skin. These can sometimes be used in concert with special exfoliation creams, toners, masks and assorted home beauty products.

There are also minor lifestyle modifications to help reduce the effects of skin aging. This includes wearing a low SPF sunblock, being mindful of sun exposure, smoking cessation, improvements in overall health, stress management techniques and a diet that is rich in antioxidant food and the vitamins A, C, and E.
