Skin Care Tips for Beautiful Breasts
Most women are aware that beautiful, flawless skin requires care and maintenance, paying extra attention to the delicate skin on the face and hands. But what many fail to remember is that the breast skin is just as delicate, and therefore should be treated with the same care. With this in mind, Miami breast lift surgeon Dr. Ary Krau would like to share the following skin care tips for keeping your breasts young and beautiful for as long as possible.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
This should go without saying, but it bears repeating. Moisturizing hydrates the skin, keeping it healthy and supple. It also promotes the production of collagen, a protein that keeps your skin firm and elastic and prevents it from becoming loose and saggy. Because the breast skin is delicate, it is best to steer clear from moisturizers that contain certain alcohol-based ingredients.
Protect Your Breasts from the Sun
The negative effects of sunbathing on your breasts go well beyond just ugly tan lines. Overexposure to UV rays damages breast skin, causing premature wrinkles to appear and even breast sag. Always apply sunscreen of at least 30 SPF on your breasts and avoid sunbathing for long hours.
Avoid Hot Showers
A long, hot shower may be tempting during the winter or after a long day of work, but it can be detrimental to the appearance and quality of your skin. Repeated hot showers can dry the skin, including the breast skin, causing it to appear flaky and dull. Cold water helps sooth and refresh the skin, especially after time under the sun or exercising.
The substances in tobacco smoke can cause skin discoloration, dryness and wrinkles. Smoking also breaks down elastin, the protein responsible for keeping your skin firm and youthful-looking. If you smoke and have noticed your breasts beginning to sag, chances are smoking is a contributing factor.
Want Perkier Breasts?
If you long for the days when your breasts were perky and lifted, you may want to consider breast lift surgery. A breast lift removes excess, stretched-out skin, restoring shape to the breasts. The procedure can also raise the breasts and nipples to a higher position on the chest wall for a youthful appearance.
Do you desire bigger breasts as well? Dr. Krau can help with that too! Dr. Krau has years of experience performing breast lift with implants surgery for women who desire perkier, fuller breasts. He will gladly discuss your aesthetic concerns and goals to find the best breast enhancement treatment for you.
