The search for the best anti-aging solutions has been going on for centuries. While the fountain of youth remains a mystery, there’s no uncertainty anymore when it comes to aging gracefully. There are plenty of things you can do in your everyday life to slow the aging process and look as young as you feel.
Let’s take a look at what Kim says when asked about the best kept anti-aging secrets:
1. Exercise your skin to maintain its youthfulness
Just like we exercise our bodies to remain in shape, we need to exercise our skin regularly to maintain its strength and elasticity. The best way we can do this is through aesthetic treatments that trigger new elastin and collagen growth, the building blocks of healthy, youthful skin. By creating thousands of tiny wounds in the skin, such treatments stimulate your body’s natural healing process, prompting skin repair and rebuild. At AVIE!, our advanced skin rejuvenation treatments, such as BBL® HERO™, MOXI®, Halo® and VirtueRF microneedling, are perfect for restoring, maintaining and extending the life of your youthful glow. Kim says, “I get a skin rejuvenation treatment every three months.”
2. Pair treatments with quality skin care to drive repair of your dermis
Only physician-grade, research-based skin care can help enhance your aesthetic results while also revitalizing and replenishing your complexion for the long-term. For example, Alastin® Skincare is formulated to boost the benefits and speed healing after professional treatments. We’re proud to carry this critically acclaimed and results-driven line of skin care products, which includes:
- Regenerating Skin Nectar: Enhances treatment outcomes and reduces recovery time; designed to complement skin-rejuvenating procedures such as lasers, microneedling and BBL/IPL.
- Restorative Skin Complex: Helps combat all visible signs of aging, brightening the complexion and lifting the skin for a more youthful glow.
- TransFORM Body Treatment: Helps improve the appearance of tighter, more youthful-looking skin; designed to help speed up/improve results after body-sculpting treatments.
3. Add supplements to your regimen
It’s hard to look your best if you don’t feel your best. Supplements help us get the nutrients we need as well as reduce the risk of preventable age-related health conditions. Adding supplements that have anti-aging properties and skin care benefits to your daily regimen is a great way to combat the effects of aging. At AVIE!, we offer a leading range of supplements, including B12 injections, probiotics and Nutrafol®. We will help you choose the ideal supplements to meet your individual needs and goals during your personal consultation.
4. Eat well, hydrate and exercise
A beautiful complexion isn’t only skin deep — it starts inside with what you eat and drink. An overly sweet tooth can lead to laxity and wrinkles as sugar attaches to proteins that damage collagen and elastin. Instead, load up on omega 3’s like salmon and olive oil, which help plump fine lines and wrinkles, and antioxidants like berries and green tea, which can strengthen skin and protect it from imperfection-causing free radicals. Drinking water is also essential for maintaining optimal skin health. Staying hydrated helps all your organs to function properly, including your largest organ, your skin! Last but not least, exercise provides an array of anti-aging benefits both physically and mentally. Staying active fights aging from the inside out, helping you lose belly fat, prevent chronic disease and better manage stress.
