How Can You Maintain Smooth, Healthy Skin

Smooth skin is often considered the hallmark of youthfulness and good health. While there's no fountain of youth and changes will happen over time, fortunately, there are lots of things that can be done to get and keep great skin at any age. 

Profhilo in Kent is a new and cutting-edge treatment that delivers impressive results to the skin. It is similar to dermal fillers in that it features hyaluronic acid as the main active component. However, the difference between the two is that profhilo is bonded thermally rather than chemically. The result of this is that this is a treatment that is highly effective at sating thirst quenched skin to give it a beautifully smooth and youthful appearance. As well as smoothing, profhilo also has a significant impact on reducing the appearance of visible signs of ageing. 

A skincare routine 
Keeping up with a good skincare routine is important at any age but is especially important when you reach your later years since your skin will naturally have lost collagen and be more prone to the damage and aging. It does not have to involve the most expensive products, but cleansing, toning and moisturising day and night can really help to keep the skin looking at its best. Choosing a lighter moisturiser for day and a heavier more nourishing one for night-time repair can be a very effective combination. 

Stay hydrated 
Most of us don't drink enough water, and that can really wreak havoc on your skin. Being dehydrated can actually make you look much older than your years, since lack of water on the skin will cause it to lose its plumpness and highlight any existing lines and wrinkles. Drinking enough water and cutting down on caffinated drinks can help, since these add to to the dehydrating effects. 

If you don't get enough sleep, you will almost certainly look older. You'll know yourself after looking in the mirror after a rough night how your skin looks sallow, your eyes look dark and you overall look drawn and not in the best condition! Over time, lack of sleep can speed up the effects of aging and trigger any existing skin conditions like acne and rosacea where things like hormones and other bodily issues are affected. 

Avoid alcohol 
Alcohol is bad for the body in general, but the skin will be one of the first places it shows. Not only does it dehydrate you but it also affects your sleep. It messes with your hormones and has many negative effects in the short and long term. It's always best to limit alcohol and drink sensibly when you do drink. This will benefit all areas of your body, not just your skin.
