Aging Gracefully Guide: Diet, Sleep & Skincare Habits to Start Today

Written by Our Editorial Team

We all want to feel confident in our skin from any age – 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond. It’s not about “stopping” aging or trying to reverse a very natural process. It’s about aging the best way our body can – in a way that shows our expressions from years of laughter and memories but still radiates health and happiness.

Luckily, aging gracefully is not about expensive clinical treatments. There are a number of things you can do for your whole body so your skin stays as plump and radiant as ever. Let’s take a look!

Your Diet & Nutrition

Hippocrates famously said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” It’s no secret good nutrition fuels your body, keeps you feeling (and looking!) good.

Consume Nutrient-dense Foods

In addition to whole grains, legumes, fruits, and veggies – you know, all the natural choices we’ve been taught since grade school – reach for items rich in antioxidants, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals.

Antioxidants, for example, can prevent or counteract the free radicals and oxidative stress that lead to visible signs of skin aging over time. Some wonderful nutrient-dense additions to your diet could include:

  • Berries: Berries such as blueberries and raspberries are rich in antioxidants.
  • Fatty fish: These fats help our bodies absorb many key vitamins and minerals for healthy aging.
  • Avocados: Avocados have umerous health benefits for the heart, vision, digestion, and more.
  • Bone broth: This nutritious broth has been said to boost collagen and support your immune system.
Avoid Foods that Damage Collagen and Elastin

We need collagen and elastin for plump looking-skin. Many of today’s processed foods can damage these important proteins in the skin, leading to faster skin aging. Trans fats from fried food, for example, can lead to breakouts, redness, or tired and dry-looking skin from such damage. It’s also good to avoid sugary food and beverages and highly processed foods (such as chips and fries).

Your Sleep Habits

Sleep plays a crucial role in the anti-aging process – they don’t call it “beauty sleep” for no reason! It’s your “peak time for repairing skin cells damaged by exposure to UV sunlight is in the early morning,” according to SleepFoundation.org. That restoration means your body can slow down skin aging, boost collagen production, and reduce inflammation.

Tips for Better Sleep

Ready for some better shut-eye? Here are some of our favorite tricks.

  • Get a consistent sleep schedule and your recommended 7-9 hours of sleep per night.
  • Limit screen time – especially two hours prior to your ideal sleep time.
  • Keep your room an oasis: decluttered, cool (SleepFoundation.org recommends 65°F) dark (hello, black-out curtains!) and quiet – or with a white noise machine.
  • Try breathing techniques, meditation, or reading – anything that gets you relaxed before bedtime.
  • Eat a healthy diet and avoid sugary foods or heavy meals two hours before you want to catch some Z’s.
Your Skincare Routine

Of course, aging gracefully has a lot to do with how you care for your skin throughout the years. A consistent, tailored approach to skincare will help keep your skin healthy, rejuvenated, and fresh. In addition to your daily cleansing and moisturizing regimen, we recommend the following for your routine.

Daily: Q-Rejuvalight Pro Anti-Aging Treatment

If you can add one anti-aging step to your routine, let it be this: LED light therapy. These are safe, clinically proven red, deep red, amber and infrared wavelengths of light that penetrate the layers of the skin at various depths to trigger natural cellular reactions needed to stimulate collagen renewal (hello, plumper-looking skin!). This helps treat skin concerns from the inside out, for immediate and long lasting anti-aging results you’ll love.

Daily: All-In-One Face Serum

Many people skip the step in their daily routine but having a serum can save you loads of time and money down the road. That’s because serums give your skin a mega boost of active anti-aging ingredients to replenish what it needs most. Our favorites? Retinol for skin renewal, peptides for firmer skin, and hyaluronic acid for plumper skin.

The unique blend of active ingredients in our All-in-One Face Serum do it all – brighten, plump, and smooth the look of skin effortlessly, addressing various concerns in just one step.

Weekly: Neck & Décolletage LED + Micro-Infusion Patches

Take special care of those areas that tend to “give away” your age, via signs of skin aging, as the years roll by – your neck and decolletage. Next, you’ll want to treat any deep lines. Depending on your complexion and genetics, this may be frown lines, crow’s feet, under eye, or laugh lines.

Repair sun-damaged skin and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles in these delicate areas with the Neck & Décolletage LED Light Therapy. Another great tip? Remember to drag down your serums and sunscreens from your face to your neck and decolletage to prevent such damage from happening.

Then, target those stubborn areas of your face with Micro- Infusion Targeted Patches. They go beyond the surface level to smooth, firm and plump those deep lines that appear with age.

Bi-Weekly: Micro-Infusion Facial

Give your skin a special treatment every other week so you can keep that youthful glow going strong! Tailored to your skin’s needs, the Micro-Infusion System helps reduce fine lines, boost hydration, and smooth texture whilst helping to infuse active ingredients into your skin. It’s like a clinical microneedling treatment that you can do at home without the price tag of a monthly visit to the cosmetic dermatologist.

Aging is a natural part of life – and how you embrace the passage of time is totally up to you. We do know, however, that your skin will thank you for caring for it! Staying active, maintaining a healthy diet, and getting good rest will keep you healthy from the inside out, and daily TLC through a specific regimen and treatments will help correct and rejuvenate your skin year after year!
