3 Anti-Aging Tips Every Person Should Follow, Kailua, Hawaii

While growing older is inevitable, there are steps you can take to slow down the aging process of your appearance. David K Hiranaka, MD, DMD, is the leading cosmetic surgeon in Kailua-Kona, HI, offering a wide range of top-quality procedures. To help you achieve long-lasting effects and radiant skin, his staff shares some anti-aging advice that every person should follow.

Cosmetic Surgeon’s Guide to Slow the Signs of Aging

1. Stop Eating Sugar

Sugars and simple carbohydrates raise the body’s insulin levels and cause inflammation. As a result, this breaks down the collagen and elastin in the skin, increasing the effects of aging and exacerbating skin problems, such as acne and rosacea. You can help to control your blood sugar levels by avoiding processed foods and sticking with fruits that contain antioxidants.

2. Drink Plenty of Water

To maintain the body’s moisture levels, keep your skin glowing, and prevent the appearance of wrinkles and pores, it’s important to stay hydrated by drinking regularly throughout the day.

3. Protect Yourself From the Sun

Sun damage can speed up the signs of aging, as it causes spots and changes in pigmentation. Combat the effects by applying high SPF sunscreen on both the face and body, even on cloudy days. You should also wear protective clothing and sunglasses with both UVA and UVB protection.

While following the above tips will delay the effects of aging, there are also various procedures that help reverse age-related damage. To learn more about which treatments may be right for you, turn to cosmetic surgeon Dr. Hiranaka. His practice provides a wide range of solutions, from eyelid rejuvenation to laser treatments. Call (808) 326-2040 to schedule an appointment with the cosmetic surgeon or visit the website for more information about their full list of services.
