Looking for more youthful skin? Of course you are. As young adulthood and the freedom of soft and a perfect complexion fades away, it can be a struggle to keep your skin looking young and healthy. The effects of sun, inadequate hydration, smoking or drinking, and years of wear and tear can make your skin look unfortunately old and tired.

Even though your younger years are behind you, there's no reason to settle for aging skin. With the right skincare regiment and healthy living choices, you can unearth the secrets to younger, more vibrant looking skin.

Make Changes to Your Lifestyle

Drinks at the bar. A cigarette during a stressful day at work. Soaking up the rays without sunscreen. All of these factors can affect the appearance of your skin, no matter how old you are on the inside. As we age, it becomes more and more important to take preventative measures. As fun as it is to tan, sun-kissed skin isn't healthy skin. Instead, put on sunscreen and a cute hat next time you head to the pool. Cutting out alcohol and smoking can also keep your face from looking old before its time.

Consider Treatment Options

From chemical peels to injectable fillers, there are numerous ways savvy individuals keep skin looking young. Fillers like Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm can smooth wrinkles and add a suppleness back into the face. Alternatives like chemical peels remove the outer layer of skin from your face, providing a deep exfoliation that facial scrubs can't match. In addition to these tried and true methods, cutting-edge dermatologists are also starting to use laser procedures, like Fraxel, to treat deep imperfections under the skin's surface.

Live Healthy

Healthy skin is happy skin. Even though there's no true way to reclaim the appearance of your youth, eating natural foods and drinking lots of water can do wonders for your face. Although often tasty, foods packed with chemicals and preservatives do not always have a positive effect on the appearance of your body.

Unfortunately, it may not be possible to look like a teenager again, but that doesn't mean you have to live with a tired complexion. By employing proper anti-aging skincare measures, eating right, and living healthy, it's easier than ever to ensure you look years younger than your age.
