Anti-Aging Skincare Tips

Use More Sensitive Skin Cleanser
Over the years, skin tends to lose its natural oils. It becomes drier and more sensitive so tell me why you are still using that aggressive anti-acne wash you saw from TikTok? If you are over 30, pick something gentle for cleansing and avoid ingredients that could be drying! Try our Sorella Milk Cleanser for a more hydrating experience.

Pay Attention to Your Diet
This rule applies to any age, actually. Still, things get more serious as the years pass by. Avoid alcohol as it dehydrates your skin. Foods high in sugars can do even worse: they make you look older. Instead, choose more protein, eat products rich in vitamin C, and consume more fatty acids like oils and avocado. Read our blog on our top foods!

Don’t Forget About SPF
SPF should always be applied at any age! The younger the better and its never too late to start wearing it. If you were using alcohol-containing SPF creams, switch to more moisturizing sunscreen products that contain antioxidants. And keep in mind, that good sun protection should be SPF 30 and above. The Sorella Quench & Protect is hydrating and contains SPF 30 if thats not a perfect match show me a better one!

Exfoliate
We all have dead cells on our faces! They are not replaced by new skin as quickly as you may think. To speed up this process, it’s necessary to exfoliate. Still, keep in mind that harsh methods are no good here. Focus on chemical quality exfoliants and use cosmetics with AHA/BHA.

Moisturize
The years make our skin dry out and living in California does not help…one day its pouring rain and the next day we are in a heat wave! This is when wrinkles step in. To ensure they appear as late as possible, you should fall in love with hydration. Avoid anything that can cause water-loss and choose moisturizers rich in hyaluronic acid as it is great at preventing water from evaporating. Call us for recommendations but check out what we have available and draw questions from there.

Get Facials
Getting monthly or bi-monthly facials help to get a deep clean and really treat concerns but your skincare professional cant do it alone! you should follow the tips above and follow the home care they have assigned for you to do! Book your next facial with Joanna Young Skin!

Essential Vitamins and Minerals for Your Skin

Alongside a healthy skincare routine, paying attention to what you eat can have a significant impact on how your skin looks and feels. These are five of the most essential nutrients you need to include in your diet for better skin.

Vitamin A
This fat-soluble vitamin is found in meat, fish, and dairy products, such as liver, salmon, and goat cheese. The body can also convert carotenoids from plant-based foods (sweet potatoes, kale, carrots, etc.) to vitamin A. This vitamin helps with cell repair and aids the skin in repairing itself from everyday wear and tear.

Vitamin C
You might think orange juice is top of the list for vitamin C, but you’d be surprised. Vitamin C can be found in lots of fruits and vegetables, including rose hips, blackcurrants, thyme, kale, and broccoli. This essential nutrient aids the skin’s natural collagen production, which contributes to keeping signs of aging at bay.

Vitamin E
Found in a variety of foods, including sunflower seeds, almonds, peanuts, avocado, mango, Atlantic salmon, and more. Vitamin E is an essential ingredient you can’t miss. It is an antioxidant and helps protect your cells, including your skin cells, meaning you may be less likely to experience fine lines and wrinkles.

Biotin
Otherwise known as vitamin B7, biotin is found in liver, egg yolk, nuts and seeds, dairy, and avocados. It’s a commonly used supplement for skin, hair, and nails, and contributes to helping your skin look healthy.

Zinc
This essential nutrient is essential to maintaining many of the body’s natural processes, but it’s also great for your skin too as it aids skin repair. You can find zinc in legumes, meat, seeds, eggs, and dark chocolate.
