Most people are not familiar with the word “pre-juvenation.” It is a reference to all the things a person can do for themselves when they are young so their youth can be maintained. These are practices that contribute to an increased quality of life. There are at least ten anti-aging practices that are the most effective.

1. Sleep

When a person regularly has proper sleep, it is associated with improved memory retention, better daytime alertness, and an improved mood. It will slow mental decline associated with aging and lower inflammation. This type of self-care is an important part of anti-aging.

2. Sunblock

Sunblock of SPF 30 or more should be used every day. This will decrease the exposure of a person’s skin to harmful UV radiation, resulting in fewer sunspots and wrinkles. This is also a good way to decrease the risk of developing skin cancer.

3. Retin-A

Retin-A is a derivative of vitamin A. It is one of the most popular anti-aging therapies a person can use on their skin. Retin-A was created to treat acne, but it was soon discovered it could benefit other skin properties. Retin-A can cosmetically improve a person’s skin and strengthen it.

4. Vitamin C Supplements

This is the most essential vitamin for the development of healthy collagen. Vitamin C is found in foods such as tomatoes, broccoli, strawberries, cantaloupe, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, kale, papaya, and more. Many skin care products also work with added vitamin C as well. Healthy collagen levels from vitamin C cause a person to have a better structure to their hair, skin, bones, and more.

5. Neurotoxins

Neurotoxins are substances such as Xeomin, Botox, Dysport, and more. They can decrease the appearance of wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles that cause severe frowning, squinting, or scowling. They can also help with the early signs of wrinkles around the eyes.

6. Fish Oil Supplements

People can’t consume a sufficient amount of fish to get a proper amount of omega fatty acids. Fish oil supplements can help. They improve a person’s brain growth, health, and eye health as well as decrease inflammation, improve age-related mental decline, and more.

7. Exercise

Everyone should spend at least 30 minutes daily doing vigorous exercise. This is associated with creating hormones that help with sleep and give a sense of well-being. It can decrease obesity and eliminate up and down weight changes that cause loose skin.

8. Stop Smoking

The chemicals in smoke are a factor when it comes to damaging the skin. A person who smokes will experience motion wrinkles around their mouth and more.

9. Lower Sugar Consumption

A diet with a high amount of sugar could damage a person’s skin. Doing this causes glycosylation of the cell membrane. It could damage the important proteins resulting in sagging, wrinkled skin that is sallow and less plump.

10. Noninvasive Skin Treatments

People who get noninvasive skin treatments will have the integrity of their skin maintained over time. These are skin treatments such as chemical peels, RF skin tightening, microneedling, intense pulse light (IPL), laser resurfacing, and others. Each of these treatments can improve the collagen in a person’s skin, resulting in a more youthful look.
