Our Favorite Anti-Aging Hacks

Our Favorite Anti-Aging Hacks

Whether you’ve had a faceliftlaser skin resurfacing, or dermal fillers, chances are good that anti-aging is one of your aesthetic objectives. After all, smooth, supple skin is a popular goal, and it’s one that we address here at The Yeung Institute in Houston, Texas.

As an internationally sought out facial plastic surgeonDr. Cecil Yeung knows that many people pursue plastic surgery, injectables, and laser rejuvenation to turn back the hands of time. These surgeries and procedures can reduce wrinkles, eliminate sagging skin, and restore a more youthful appearance. 

We address your specific concerns during your personalized consultation, but in the meantime, we share some of our favorite anti-aging hacks here.


Exercise helps boost your mood and helps you maintain a healthy weight, but it’s also great for anti-aging. Researchers from Brigham Young University found that people who exercise regularly are nine years younger on a cellular level.

When you’re physically active, your circulation increases, bringing more blood to nourish your skin cells. Your cells receive more oxygen and are better at eliminating toxins. 

In other words, exercise isn’t just surface level: It helps keep the body acting more youthful — down to the cellular level.

Get your beauty sleep

Lack of sleep can make you feel unrefreshed in the morning, but it can also leave you with dark circles under your eyes, a low mood, and a host of physical issues. It can even make your cells age faster. 

According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, it only takes one bad night of sleep for your cells to respond. The good news is that you can make changes today to improve your sleep habits.

To make your beauty sleep more effective, practice these sleep hygiene tips:

Not only does a good night of sleep help your skin look better, but it also supports your overall health 一 and that’s why this is one of our all-time favorite anti-aging hacks.

Choose the right skin care routine for your skin type

While everyone needs a good skin care routine, not everyone’s ideal skin care routine looks the same. Mature skin has unique needs, and anti-aging skin care products are designed to address them. 

Not sure if you’re using the right products? Don’t hesitate to ask. We carry Obagi products and can help guide you in finding the right ones for your goals.

Use SPF daily

Part of a good skin care routine means protecting your skin with SPF. Because excessive ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause photodamage — including wrinkles, fine lines, rough texture, and hyperpigmentation — wearing SPF is your best defense against photoaging.

Load up on vitamin C

While you might recognize vitamin C as the immune-boosting vitamin in your multivitamin, you should include it in your skin care regimen, too, for its anti-aging powers. Namely, it neutralizes the free radicals that cause oxidative stress and premature skin aging. 

Not only does vitamin C help fight free radicals, but it also helps fade dark spots and stimulates collagen production to keep your skin smooth and youthful.

Don’t just apply vitamin C to your skin. Eat it, too! Red bell peppers, strawberries, oranges, and Brussels sprouts are rich in vitamin C and provide similar collagen-stimulating and youth-boosting effects.


Nothing makes your skin lose its youthful glow quite like a buildup of dead skin. Exfoliating can help keep your skin glowing by sloughing away dead skin cells. There are many ways you can exfoliate your face and body:

Obagi also makes exfoliating cleansers and lotions.

Eat a balanced diet

The best “anti-aging” diet isn’t a fad or a trendy diet plan. In fact, it’s simply focusing more on whole foods. This includes fresh vegetables, fruits, legumes, 100% whole grains, and lean proteins. Avoid or limit ultra-processed foods, including fast food, soda, refined grains, and sweets. Both the Mediterranean diet and DASH diet meet these standards.

Get younger-looking skin

While these are our favorite anti-aging hacks, we know that the best way to reach your goals is to customize these anti-aging tips and our anti-aging services to meet your needs. That’s why we offer personalized packages.
