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.

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.

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.

It is commonly recognized that the way you treat your body when you’re younger will have an effect on your ageing and health in later life. It’s never too late to start taking care of yourself and begin a new cycle of care to help improve your energy levels, overall health, appearance and self-confidence.
Some people mistreat their body through consuming excessive amounts of alcohol, junk food, drugs and a lack of proper exercise. This affects some people more than others depending on genetics and their ability to naturally handle this kind of treatment. There are a few general factors that you need to think about when giving your body the best treatment in an effort to work towards prolonging your life and living healthily and happily.
Getting enough sleep
There is a lot of information about how much sleep is right for you and this will depend on your age and lifestyle. For example, Better Health recommends that adolescents need between 9 and 10 hours of sleep per night in order to reduce risk of depression and allow for better academic and athletic performance. It is worth researching how much sleep you need based on your age, lifestyle and health to ensure that you’re getting enough to properly maintain your body.
Eating the right foods
A lot of people struggle to find time or the knowledge to properly feed themselves. Eating junk food can often be a convenient solution to eating the healthier option of fruit, vegetables, protein and required sources of nutrition. Resources like Jamie’s 30 minute meals can help educate you on how to cook a delicious, nutritional meal as well as giving you the skills to prepare more basic nutritional dishes that will end up saving you money in the long run.
Exercise is one of the most important requirements for maintaining your appearance and keeping the body strong and healthy. The challenge here is to maintain a consistent routine that allows for regular exercise sessions weekly, according to your limits and recommendations from a fitness professional.
Toxins such as tobacco can significantly contribute to premature ageing, creating lines and wrinkles in your face. This is on top of the other health risks that are associated with smoking.
If you have reached a stage of life where you are finding it difficult to meet these requirements to improve your appearance, or if you have a physical characteristic that requires an experienced plastic surgeon to be corrected, you can contact Dr Anh Nguyen by phone (08) 6555 3480 or through our contact page.
