As you age, you may find that you need to alter habits like exercise or sleep to better accommodate your body's needs. Your skin care regimen will also likely need to change. The dermatology staff at Deerfield Dermatology Associates in Deerfield, Illinois have compiled a list of tips that they give their patients who want to maintain their skin's health while staving off the effects of aging at the same time.Aging Skin

Consider your diet

"You are what you eat" is a well-known cliche, but in the case of your skin, it couldn't be more true. Eating foods high in antioxidants can neutralize the effects of free radical molecules; these unstable molecules can damage tissues all over the body, including the skin. Since free radical damage increases with age, it's important to take steps to counteract this "attack" on your body. Foods like blueberries, grapes, walnuts, broccoli, kale, and sweet potatoes all pack a healthy dose of antioxidants; green tea is also packed with free radical-fighting nutrients called polyphenols. These foods can be eaten alone or included in recipes; as your Deerfield dermatologist will tell you, you'll find what works - and tastes - best for you.

Moisturize with vitamins

Although there's no "miracle cream" to erase wrinkles for good, there are many dermatologist-recommended products that can help fight the effects of aging by evening your skin tone and plumping out the surface of the skin. Creams that contain retinol, Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid are known to be effective, but ask your Deerfield dermatologist before spending money on a product that may not be right for your skin type.

Cosmetic treatments

For more complex cases, your Deerfield dermatologist may recommend having a cosmetic dermatology treatment done at our office. This can include dermal fillers for wrinkles, laser treatments for "age spots" or chemical peels to rejuvenate your skin. All of the medical staff at Deerfield Dermatology Associates have had the training and certification necessary to perform these treatments safely and effectively.
