Expert tips for younger looking skin

Super penetrating anti-aging serumDr. Gerald Imber is one of the world’s leading plastic surgeons. He has decades of experience in plastic surgery and facial rejuvenation.  Dr. Imber has also several books about the care and maintenance of a youthful appearance, including the best-selling, anti-aging manual, The New Youth Corridor.   

Dr. Imber doesn’t believe that surgery alone is the answer to younger-looking skin. Here are his simple and effective tips for women all of ages, to have younger looking skin.
If you want younger looking skin:
Don’t smoke. The result is loss of elasticity, sagging and wrinkles.
Don’t gain or lose weight repeatedly.  Skin that does not respond to weight loss by shrinking looks loose, empty and haggard. The older you are or the more weight you need to lose, the more likely this problem will arise. Avoid significant weight gain, lose slowly and, above all, find your optimal weight and maintain it.
Don’t get too thin. Hollow cheeks and thin skin makes an adult look frail, weak, and old.
Don’t run.  At least don’t be a long-term, long-distance jogger.  The loss of fat padding in the cheeks as well as the constant rising and pounding down, which lifts and pulls the facial skin away from the underlying muscles and bones, causes the skin to sag.  These things have a negative effect on one’s appearance. 
Don’t do facial exercises. They cause wrinkles.
Avoid the sun It’s the primary accelerator of loosening and wrinkling of the skin.  It causes pigment changes, sunspots, and other unsightly eruptions.  
Don’t passively stretch skin.  When you prop your hand on your cheek or wash and apply products in a downward motion, you are passively stretching your skin.
To have younger skin:
Cleanse, use anti-oxidants and moisturizers.
Towel off briskly for exfoliation.  It helps remove heaped-up dead skin cells and allows healthy young cells to reach the surface. Always go from the down to the up direction, to avoid stretching the skin downward. Work with gravity not against it to prevent drooping.  Be gentle and do not apply much pressure.
Apply skin treatments and serums to clean, dry skin.
Make sure anti-oxidants penetrate the skin. Vitamin C and Vitamin E are among the most potent antioxidants for treating the skin, but if they can’t get into the skin, they can’t work their magic.  
Dr. Imber created Youth Corridor ( Antioxidant Boost Skin Serum with 10% Vitamin C, E and Melatonin to allow a larger dose of antioxidants to penetrate through the keratinized (tough waterproof outer layer) layer of the skin, due to melatonin’s lipophillic nature or ability to dissolve more quickly in fat.
Moisturizers with a sunscreen are a must to protect from the sun.  If a sunscreen is used separately, it should be applied before the moisturizer so it can penetrate.
