As we age, so does our skin, especially around our face. Our facial skin begins to lose elasticity and we might notice the forming of fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes, forehead, and mouth. This doesn’t mean we can’t fight back against the clock with certain skin care routines. Here are some of the best facial treatments for aging skin.
This may be a given, but we’ll never stop reminding people: wear sunscreen. The sun’s UV rays can majorly harm your skin’s outer layer, reducing its elasticity and enhancing fine lines and wrinkles. Too much sun exposure can also dry out your skin, depleting it of its natural oils and causing you to lose that healthy, youthful glow.
Ensure that you wear sunscreen every day, even in overcast weather. The easy way to do this is to include facial sun protection in your daily makeup or morning skin care routine.

Microdermabrasion is very beneficial to reducing the signs of aging on your face. The process uses a small, rotating tool to remove the dead skin cells and other debris that is blocking the outer layer of your skin. It exfoliates and deeply cleanses your face, unclogging your pores and revealing smoother, younger-looking skin underneath. The treatment itself also encourages new collagen growth, which results in a more even skin tone.
Incorporate Vitamin C Into Your Routine
Vitamin C plays a huge part in encouraging the growth of new collagen, so when you include it in your skin care routine you’re helping your skin keep its elasticity, strength, and healthy, youthful look.

Chemical peels are another option if you’re looking to combat the effects of aging on your face, and is arguably the most popular treatment. Chemical peels are similar to microdermabrasion in that they remove the damaged, dull outer layer of skin. A chemical solution is applied topically to the face, with special care around the mouth, nose, and eyes.
After the solution is neutralized, the dead skin layers will begin to peel, revealing a new, smooth and bright layer of skin underneath. Moisturizer and sunscreen is essential to a flawless recovery and great results.
