Facial uniformity deteriorates when we age: age spots, freckles, small bundles of blood vessels, etc., tend to increase when we age. But we can slow their progression and reduce their severity.
For the best ways to improve facial uniformity, start with these three tips. For more ideas, keep reading!
Top 3 Tips to Improve Facial Uniformity
- Cut back on high-sugar foods and starchy foods (bread, potatoes, rice, and pasta), which can cause high super peaks, glycation, and inflammation in the skin.
- Cover it up. Various concealers, tinted moisturizers, and foundations can make the skin look more uniform while protecting and nourishing the skin.
- Take specific supplements that have scientifically proven to slow down aging and that can also reduce wrinkles. These are supplements like: alpha ketoglutarate, glucosamine, glycine, and oral hyaluronic acid containing acetyl-glucosamine. NOVOS Core contains all these supplements.
Additional Tips to Improve Facial Uniformity:
- Highly-concentrated retinol skin cream can improve skin uniformity and reduce age spots, and freckle-like spots and other skin blemishes.
- Drinking green and white tea can improve overall skin health and tone.
- High-concentration vitamin C serum can brighten the skin and improve overall skin tone.
- Avoid trans fats, which can be found in fried foods, highly-processed foods, and vegetable shortenings. They can cause skin redness and inflammation.
- Significantly reduce your intake of pro-inflammatory omega-6-fat-rich foods, like sunflower oil, corn oil, safflower oil, margarine, sesame oil, mayonnaise, and most salad dressings.
- Consume more healthy fats, especially omega-3 fats, by consuming more olives, olive oil, walnuts, avocados, flax seed, chia seed, fatty fish, etc. Healthy fats are very important for healthy, even skin.
- Take a B vitamin complex (which contains all B vitamins) to improve overall skin tone. Deficiencies in specific B vitamins can cause red, scaly patches on the skin and eczema-like skin rashes.
- Make sure you are not suffering from rosacea, a skin condition characterized by redness, swelling, and dilated blood vessels often on the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. Bacterial overgrowth and leaky gut can play a role in the origin of this disease. Bacterial overgrowth and leaky gut are often caused by an unhealthy diet, including the overconsumption of sugars and starchy foods like bread, pasta, potatoes, and rice.
- Ensure you are not suffering from seborrhoeic dermatitis, characterized by often flaky, red skin patches around the sides of the nose, on the forehead, and sometimes on the chest or back.
- Dairy products not only accelerate aging but also can cause inflammation, allergies and food intolerances, and skin problems like eczema.
- Zinc is an important mineral for skin health, and can improve overall skin tone and reduce redness.
- Spicy foods can increase skin redness. On the other hand, various herbs like ginger, parsley, turmeric, rosemary, thyme, garlic, and others can improve skin health because of their anti-inflammatory properties.
- Too much sun exposure in the past can greatly increase the risk of age spots and other blemishes on the skin. Protect your skin against sun exposure. Always apply sunscreen (SPF 30+), and wear caps and hats as much as possible.
- Consume a healthy diet. This means a lot of vegetables, fruits, nuts, fatty fish, legumes, and mushrooms. Avoid unhealthy fats and too much sugar and carbs. Click here to learn more about a healthy longevity diet.
- Do not smoke.
- Drink (very) little alcohol. Alcohol is converted into substances that damage DNA, stem cells, and the skin. Drink a maximum of one glass of alcohol daily, including alcohol-free days.
- Reduce stress. Stress causes accelerated skin aging and can even accelerate hair graying; scientists discovered why here.
- Take specific supplements that are healthy for the skin: copper, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin A, B vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids are all important ingredients the skin needs to thrive.
- Hydroquinone is an often prescription-based lightening cream that may gradually fade age spots over several months. Hydroquinone may cause skin irritation.
- Laser and intense pulsed light therapies can remove melanin granules and melanin-producing cells (melanocytes), lightening the skin and reducing age spots and other blemishes.
- Microdermabrasion is a procedure by which fine needles puncture small holes in the skin, leading to a healing process that can improve skin tone and uniformity.
- Azaleic acid and kojic acid can also improve skin uniformity and reduce dark spots.
