Do you ever notice that you’re more likely to take advice from your healthcare professional rather than a friend or family member?

Well, there’s a good reason for that — your healthcare professional spent years studying and practicing the advice they’re giving you. That being the case, it’s a good idea to take our expert advice for keeping your skin tight. 


Use sunscreen.


Forget any beauty or pop culture trend that perpetuates the idea that tan skin is prettier than paler skin. What’s better than that is healthy, tight skin. Sunscreen is one of the biggest tools you can use in preserving your skin’s youthful appearance is, so use it every day.


Use gentle salicylic acid exfoliants.


Ingredients in these products hydrate and smooth your skin and help keep it’s resiliency, which will keep your skin tighter down the line. Important: Don’t use these products if you have sensitive skin.


Drink plenty of water.


You’ve heard it time and time again that staying well hydrated is the key to having healthy, beautiful skin, and that’s the truth. Keeping your skin hydrated keeps its elasticity and helps it bounced back as you age.


Use a retinol cream when you’re young.


Anti-aging creams are really great for keeping your skin tight before it starts to sag and can even help prolong the aging process if you start early using them early enough. We’re not saying to start when you’re 15, but it doesn’t hurt to begin using retinol products once you’re in your mid-twenties. Just be wary if you have sensitive skin as these products can cause irritation.
