The coronavirus lockdown has led to several changes to our everyday lives, including the chance to continue your normal beauty regimen. Although staying safe and healthy is a top priority, it’s normal to want to feel like your best self in a time of uncertainty and contemplating a new normal. If you’ve had injectable treatments in the past, you know that your results are only temporary and will need to be touched-up to maintain your new look. While you may not have ready access to your plastic surgeon in the time being, there are some steps you can take at home to make sure your anti-aging results remain in place.
Consider taking zinc supplements
Zinc is responsible for helping your body maintain its cells and also fight off invading bacteria and viruses. Your body also needs zinc to build new proteins and DNA. Interestingly, it has also been proven to interact with Botox in a positive way to prolong your results. Most people are zinc deficient so taking zinc supplements in the meantime can help maintain your Botox results.
Avoid the sun
Sunlight is integral for your mental health, but prolonged exposure can take a toll on your skin. When you spend too much time in the sun, its UV rays can begin to break down your skin’s deep structures and cause wrinkles and fine lines to form. If you’re trying to maintain your anti-aging results, it’s extremely important to ensure that more aging signs don’t form in the meantime. Make sure to use a broad spectrum sunscreen every day and limit your time outdoors during the hottest and brightest parts of the day.
One of the most important aspects of staying healthy during the current situation is taking care of your mental health. By avoiding limiting stress that can be caused by the fear and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can limit the negative effects on your skin and body. Try practicing your favorite self care techniques as well as limiting your time reading or watching the news.
Upgrade Your Skincare Regimen
With more time at home to focus on skincare, you can begin taking some extra steps to ensure your skin stays youthful and healthy in the meantime. If you’ve been considering trying new products or upgrading to a physician-grade regimen, there’s never a better time to try it out. Consider a virtual consultation with your skincare specialist to begin putting together the right selection of products for you and your goals.
