Simple Ways to Maintain or Recapture Your Youthful Appearance

How diet, skincare & quality eyeglasses can help you remain youthful. 

As you age maintaining a youthful appearance is likely at the top of your wish list. From the best serums and holistic treatments on the market to restrictive diet and exercise plans, many of us are always seeking a way to keep the aging away. And although employing age-reversing techniques may help to combat or slow further aging signs, there are many things you can do now to slow the process before it starts. 

Skin Protection
Number one is taking care to protect yourself from harsh, natural elements. For all of you beach bunnies and avid travelers, this means the sun. Though we are repeatedly told  to adopt the habit of coating ourselves in the highest SPF we can find, you can go above and beyond, adding in quality eyeglasses to further protect the skin around your eyes. This delicate skin is ten times thinner than the skin on your face, and as we age, our skin loses elasticity, becoming even thinner due to the breakdown of collagen. Caring for your most sensitive areas now will help them to remain more supple and youthful longer. 

Moisturize
While it is important to take care of your skin when you are outside, it is equally important to tend to it indoors. Upon waking and before hitting the pillow at night, finding the right moisturizer for your skin type is crucial in keeping your skin hydrated and happy. Women with dry skin will need a thicker crème based moisturizer while sensitive types and oily skin will need a lighter base and may only need to apply once a day. Again, make sure to tend to your eye area with care. 

Eat Clean & Hydrate
“We are what we eat” is one of the truest quotes to live by. Nutrition is crucial in slowing everything from disease to wrinkles to cellulite and energy loss. Eating a well-balanced diet of whole grains, healthy fats and an abundance of fruits and vegetables will give your body the foundation it needs to thrive. Also, enough cannot be said about the importance of clean water. Drinking half of your body weight in ounces is the general recommendation, more if you are in a dry climate or are battling a health ailment. Drinking plenty of water also helps to hydrate the skin, impacting it from the inside out. 

Plenty Of Sleep
We are a society of constant performance, stretching our hours and living on social media. Computers, tablets, and phones are present in our office, our home, and the bedroom. Getting seven to eight hours of quality sleep per night means a more youthful appearance, a lower risk of many diseases and improved stress levels. Thirty to sixty minutes before bedtime shut down all technological devices and do something to help you wind down and prepare for restful sleep. 

Finding Your Style
In touching back on eyeglasses, not only does it offer great protective capabilities against the suns harsh UV rays, but also choosing the right style can take years off one's appearance. Just as the right ensemble can accentuate our body’s best features, eyeglasses also has the same stylistic properties. We offer a wide range of frames from luxury brands, offering a style for everyone that can highlight their best features. Much more than simply selling eyeglasses, we work you one on one to enhance your image, confidence, and style - making it a highly customized and experience.
