November is National Healthy Skin Month, and we believe the best time to stave off the signs of aging is before they even start.

You can maintain your healthiest, most youthful appearance as you age by protecting your skin from environmental damage and incorporating powerful products and procedures. When searching for the best skincare products for healthy skin, visit our Central Texas Dermatology store!

When it comes to helpful tips and procedures beyond products, consider these tips from board-certified dermatologist Dr. Emily Prosise for beautiful skin as you age:

  • Skincare in Your 20s: Use sun protection and gentle retinoids at night. Apply a moisturizer with SPF every morning. Gentle treatments such as hydrafacials can cleanse the skin and allow your home treatments to work better.
  • Skincare in Your 30s: Maintain sun protection and retinoid use to prevent wrinkles, loss of elasticity and uneven texture. During the day, add an antioxidant-containing product to boost sun protection and fight free radicals. Consider medical grade exfoliation or peels to brighten skin and neurotoxin to prevent deep lines from forming.
  • Skincare in Your 40s: Consider adding a moisturizing retinoid product with anti-inflammatory ingredients to your existing regimen. Eat a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants to help maintain radiance. Slow signs of aging with neurotoxin to soften lines and fillers to preserve the contours of your face. IPL “Photofacial” can help diminish red and brown discoloration, and microneedling with PRP will improve superficial skin texture.
  • Skincare in Your 50s and Beyond: As your natural oil and collagen production slows, you’re starting to see decreased volume. Rich creams are your friend. Step up your game with AHA exfoliators and glycolic peels. If change in facial structure or wrinkles bother you, consider adding fillers and neurotoxins. Fractionated laser is a nice treatment for intensive rejuvenation for texture and pigment changes.
