Spring can be an exciting time for many people, but for others, it can mean feeling self-conscious about their skin while enjoying spring break vacation. Everybody gets wrinkles, age spots, facial creases, but there are ways to bounce back. Our anti-aging clinic in McAllen wants to share a few treatments we offer to keep your skin looking its best and what you can do now to get healthier feeling skin.
Step 1: Simplicity is Key
Walking into the beauty section of your favorite store can be daunting. Trust us, it’s not always easy knowing the type of skin you have and which products are right. Try sticking to the basics:
- Gentle cleanser
Most people think sleeping is a luxury, but give your body the chance to heal and restore. We also recommend a skin revitalization treatment! It’s non-invasive and can improve your appearance easily and quickly!
Step 2: Take Things Slow
Doing anything that prevents you from getting stressed is important. Read a book, take a walk and connect with family or friends – anything that puts you at ease. You can also set aside a few minutes every morning to breathe. This helps keep the stress hormone (cortisol) stay under control.
Step 3: Go Green
Many might not know this but a good 20-minute walk, while the sun is out, gives your body a natural amount of Vitamin D along with a boost in circulation. Also, drinking green tea helps you hydrate, just like water. It’s loaded with all types of benefits, such as flavonoids. Ask us about our Metagenics D3 5000 soft gels that offer a whopping 5000 IU of Vitamin D!
Day 4: Start Eating Better
Try eliminating processed foods and start incorporating a nutrient-rich diet. Whole grains and complex carbs (whole wheat bread, black beans, brown rice) help keep your blood sugar levels at a steady rate and are rich in fatty acids, which have skin-smoothing effects. We know that diet fads come and go, but our HCG Diet not only changes how you lose fat and weight, but also changes how your body approaches the fat loss process!

Day 5: Start Exercising
If you’re doing at least 30 minutes of active exercise every day, then good for you! If not, don’t fret; it doesn’t matter when you start, just as long as you start doing it. Exercising helps get your heart rate up and any type of physical activity that makes you breathe a little harder is a win in our books.
Step 6: Check Your Stress
Start learning how to meditate. Meditation helps cope with stress and keeps your brain functioning at optimal levels.
Step 7: Get Plenty of Sleep
Most people think sleeping is a luxury, but give your body the chance to heal and restore. Did you know that while you sleep, your body is busy lowering the risk of heart disease and repairing cells? Power naps can help too. We also recommend a skin revitalization treatment! It’s non-invasive and can improve your appearance easily and quickly!
