Everyone's skin ages as they get older. The rate at which skin ages depends on genetics, skin care and sun exposure. Fair skin tends to show skin damage more so than darker skin due to the melanin in darker skin. To improve your look, take measures to reverse skin aging. There are products you can use in an attempt to reverse skin aging and prevent further aging. Professional cosmetic procedures can also reverse the signs of aging.
Things You'll Need
- Skin cream containing alpha-hydroxy acids
Use Retin-A on your skin. Retin-A is one of the only topical treatments that reverses skin aging. It must be prescribed by a doctor, family doctor or dermatologist. Retin-A is a strong topical treatment. Follow the doctor's instructions on exactly how to use it.
Apply a skin cream that contains alpha-hydroxy acids. If using other treatments, such as Retin-A, seek advice from a doctor on how to use the alpha-hydroxy acids. The standard instructions are to use it nightly or every other night. It will improve skin tone and aging skin.
Get laser resurfacing done on the skin. This treatment is always done at a dermatologist's office. The laser resurfacing smooths out wrinkles. Depending on the condition of the skin, multiple sessions may be necessary.
Stay hydrated. Beauty often comes from within. Dehydrated skin makes the skin appear aged. Drink a minimum of 64 oz. of water per day.
