Fighting Adult Skin Conditions: Is There Help for Your Acne?

Anti Aging Tips For People In Their Late 20s

by Art Bishop

Many people begin to notice the subtle signs of getting older while in their late twenties. The most common things that people notice are drier skin and fine lines around the mouth and eyes. While it is impossible to reverse these signs of aging, the twenties are a great time to work on potentially preventing future lines and wrinkles. Here are a few tips that can make the time go a little slower when it comes to appearance. 

Don't Be Afraid Of Botox

Botox is something that man associate with a frozen, expressionless face. It's also something that many do not consider getting while in their twenties. However, botox is something that actually be very useful during the last part of the twenties. During this time, many notice lines that are just beginning to form. Botox can get rid of these lines and keep them from deepening by paralyzing the surrounding muscles. Over time, it is thought to have a preventative effect. Anyone who is noticing the beginning stages of certain lines and wrinkles should consider a visit to their dermatologist in order to determine if botox is the right choice. 

Retinoids For Acne And Wrinkles

For many, even as they get closer to their third decade of life, acne remains a problem. Dealing with acne and wrinkles at the same time is something that stumps many in their late twenties. Luckily retinoids can help. Retinoids work by increasing cell turnover and thickening skin. This works to prevent wrinkles from forming. The strength of a retinoid varies depending on whether or not it is obtained from a dermatologist. Over the counter products are usually less effective than the stronger retinoids offered through a dermatologist. 

Dealing With Sun Damage

What many people do not realize is that there is no such thing as a "healthy" tan. Tanning is a sign of skin damage and too much exposure to harmful UV rays can lead to premature aging and certain types of cancer. Skin damage from the sun starts to become apparent during the latter part of the twenties. The best way to prevent more damage is by wearing sunscreen every day. Dealing with sun damage can be approached in many ways. Chemical peels, intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, laser skin resurfacing, and dermabrasion are techniques that are used by dermatologists in order to repair the signs of sun damage.    

The signs of aging become more apparent with each passing decade. Luckily there are a few things that can be done. Botox, retinoids, and dealing with sun damage are all different ways to keep up a youthful appearance.
