    How Often Should You Moisturise For Better Looking Skin?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    A great way to promote healthier, younger looking skin is to make sure you follow a regular skin care routine. Moisturiser is a wonderful way to replenish some of the moisture your skin loses naturally, leaving it looking firmer and plumper and temporarily reducing the appearance of wrinkles. If you’d like your skin to look younger, you’ll need to moisturise often.

    As a general rule, you can keep your skin looking at its best by moisturising once in the morning and once at night after removing any makeup and cleaning your skin with a gentle wash appropriate for your face and skin type.

    To make the most of your moisturiser, it can also be a good idea to buy brands that make use of vitamins. Applied topically, Vitamins A, B and E can all promote younger looking skin.

    Another top tip is to make sure that when you moisturise, you use a product that also offers sun protection. The negative effects of the sun on your skin are manifold and by using a moisturiser that contains an SPF 30+ you’re not only benefiting your skin in the short term but in the long term too.

    Moisturising your skin can help leave skin looking fresher and smoother and assist in preventing the appearance of ageing. For cases of skin damage, scarring or skin treatments contact Dr Anh Nguyen and her female team on 08 6555 3480.

    Managing Stress And Reducing Wrinkles

    Last updated 1 year ago

    There are clear links between stress and a whole host of negative side effects, including a detrimental effect on the condition of your skin. Frowning foreheads and clenched teeth can help promote the formation of wrinkles, as can sleepless nights combined with poor diets. By managing stress, you can help reduce wrinkles and leave your skin looking younger and fresher.

    Try and reduce the occurrence of stressful situations in your day-to-day life. Minimise your contact with stressful people and learn to improve your time management skills to make the most of your day and decrease stress caused by missing deadlines or being unable to complete your work.

    Take control of your environment too, make sure you have a space that is free from stressors. For example, ensure you have a room at home that has no TV, phone or computer that will allow you to take a break from technology.

    Stress is sometimes hard to avoid, but there are things you can do to lessen its impact. One of the most effective methods of reducing stress is to introduce some regular exercise into your routine. There’s nothing like a few laps of the pool or half an hour on the treadmill to blast away some of your daily frustrations. Exercise will often help resolve and dispel mental energy that is built up in your body. A good workout session can also give you more energy.

    A healthy diet with only minimal amount of caffeine, sugar and alcohol can help your body cope with stress more easily and making sure you do your best to get a good night’s sleep will allow your body to heal.

    If your face is showing signs of stress that you’d like to minimise, get in touch with at Dr Anh Nguyen, Perth-based, female cosmetic surgeon who specialises in cosmetic treatments for women, by calling 08 6555 3480.

    Eating Easily And Healthily To Keep Your Shape

    Last updated 1 year ago

    The easiest way to maintain a diet that will help you keep your shape is to remember that balance is key. When you eat a balanced diet, your body has the building blocks necessary to keep itself healthy, helping improve your body shape.

    Your body needs the vitamins found in fresh fruit and vegetables, but it also needs carbohydrates and even some fat to look after itself properly. By denying yourself certain food groups, you can confuse your body’s natural responses, making it more likely that you will retain weight in places you don’t want to.

    It’s easy to assume that because food has been labelled as ‘low fat’ it will be healthy, but that isn’t always the case. Food that is marketed as low in fat can sometimes have large amounts of preservatives or sugars to compensate, making their benefits doubtful. Where possible, eat foods that are naturally low in fat and treat yourself to cakes or sweets occasionally instead. It’s always a good idea to learn how to read the packaging on your food.

    Where possible, try to eat foods that you have cooked yourself. The biggest stumbling block to a healthy diet tends to be all of the preservatives and hidden sugars in pre-prepared meals. By cutting down on these and replacing them with simple choices, such as baked potatoes, sandwiches on homemade bread and home-cooked soup, you’ll find that it is much easier to stay in shape.

    If you’re looking for some help in creating the body shape you’ve always wanted or are struggling with stubborn fat deposits, get in touch with the team at Dr Anh Nguyen's Perth practice on 08 6555 3480 to find out more about cosmetic surgery treatments that could help. 

    Natural Foods And Vitamins To Tighten Skin

    Last updated 1 year ago

    As you age, many different changes start to take place in your skin. One of the most noticeable changes is a lack of tightness, which is characterised by sagging skin and wrinkles. By eating the right diet and supplements, you could help give your skin the nutrients it needs to stay smooth and tighter for long.

    One of the most important skin-friendly vitamins to make sure you have in your diet is Vitamin C. It promotes the formation of collagen and elastin fibres, which are crucial in stopping skin from sagging. You can find it in fresh fruit and vegetables, particularly in citrus fruits, red bell pepper and collard greens.

    Vitamin A is another essential for your skin, as it can help your skin repair its damaged tissue. Fruits and vegetables are a great source of Vitamin A, but it can also be found in milk and egg yolks.

    You should also make sure your diet provides you with plenty of Vitamin E, which is great for reducing the signs of sun damage to your skin. It neutralises the free radicals within your body with can lead to sagging, wrinkled skin and is found in foods such as nuts, whole grains and vegetable oils.

    Ensure your diet contains plenty of the above vitamins and you’ll be giving your skin what it needs to look its best. If you’re looking for a way to improve your skin and minimise the look of wrinkles, non-invasive surgical procedures could help.
