How to Prevent Change in Skin Texture and Tone with Age

October 7th, 2014

Many have questioned whether it is really possible to prevent changes to skin tone and texture with age or if this is merely a pipe dream.  Skincare professionals at the best NYC spas understand the desire to halt time due to the ways that it visibly ages skin.  They can recommend preventative natural remedies that delay the signs of aging.  Holistic day spas, such as the Joanna Vargas Skincare Sanctuary, are attuned to how overall wellness impacts the health of their clients skin and can customize regimes with this in mind to slow the aging process.

What natural preventative care do the best spas use?

The best spas use a gentle combination of nutrient rich products that contain fortifying antioxidants as well as SPF protection.  A Vitamin C Face Wash is vital because it brightens and cleanses to rid the pores of the daily the impurities that can eventually break down the dermis leading to fine lines and wrinkles.  Respected dermatologist, Dr. Cynthia Bailey considers this daily vitamin to be one of her top 3 anti-aging ingredients.


In his popular anti-aging book The Murad Method, Dr. Howard Murad discusses how the fibroblasts stimulated by Vitamin C can jumpstart collagen production once it is absorbed into the skin.  This protein is most essential for maintaining youthful tone and texture.  So with regular use as a cleanser you experience the cumulative effects of dermal balancing Vitamin C.

A critical reminder: applying sufficient SPF is an important skincare step to remember during the fall and winter because often we forget that skin is exposed to sun year round because of the reduced intensity.  The sun can seriously damage the tone and texture of your complexion without at least a partial shield.  When SPF is included in your vitamin C face products it less likely that you’ll leave the house unprotected.  If you’ve noticed spots forming then you may need extra coverage.

Why is my skin texture and tone changing with age?

Over time our skin endures daily battering from exposure the elements: pollution, UV rays, free radicals, depleted hydration and temperature fluctuations among many things.  Without a proper skincare routine, that should include professional attention in the form of preventative therapies, the dermis will start to degrade prematurely.

Recognizing your skin type is essential for achieving optimal results from a dedicated face care routine.  Skilled aestheticians that are extremely adept in making this assessment can assist in choosing the best age-reversing Vitamin C products for your skin type.
