3 Shocking Skin Aging Accelerators and Their Nicolas Perricone Treatments

So you know there’s plenty of factors that are surefire ways to age you skin, such as sun damage and smoking. But there are 3 everyday factors you may never have thought of that can also speed up your skin’s aging process.

Read on to learn what these 3 factors are and which Nicolas Perricone MD treatments can help.


1. Sleeping

Sleeping is very important for slowing the aging process. When you sleep, your skin rejuvenates and your stress cortisol levels lower.

However, the way you sleep can actually cause wrinkles. If you sleep on a certain side more often, for example, the wrinkles on that side will be more compressed. That is why sleeping faceup is very important.

Use a pillow that cradles your head so you can sleep comfortably on your back, rather than on your side. Sleeping on a satin pillowcase can also help prevent wrinkles.

Before you rest, apply an anti-aging night treatment, like Concentrated Restorative Cream to increase the rejuvenating effects of sleep while it increases firmness and elasticity and diminishes lines and wrinkles. By helping your skin bounce back with Vitamin C Ester and DMAE, Concentrated Restorative Cream will also alleviate the sleeper’s crease.


2. Running

Exercising is very important for not only a healthy inside, but a healthy outside as it helps keep skin tight as you increase muscle mass. However, running involves a repeat movement that can take a slight toll on your skin: bouncing up and down.

According to dermatologist Dennis Gross of NYC, when you bounce up and down repeatedly, this causes you skin to sag slightly faster. This does not suggest you shouldn’t run, but it does suggest that runners should digest and apply skin firming ingredients, even at an earlier age.

The benefits of skin firming and toning DMAE can be received internally and externally. For example, a good dietary source of DMAE is wild Alaskan salmon, while a great topical treatment that includes high levels of DMAE is High Potency Amine Complex Face Lift by Nicolas Perricone MD.


After a run, cleanse with a firming treatment soap, like the Cleansing Treatment Bar by Dr. Nicolas Perricone. This bar, formulated with DMAE, also includes:

  • Olive Oil Polyphenols to deliver antioxidant benefits, while nourishing, calming, and hydrating
  • Pure Glycolic Acid to gently exfoliate and purify the skin, while smoothing and rejuvenating


3. Driving

Sun damage is one of the biggest contributors to aging. Unfortunately, car windows don’t block UVA rays.

American drivers actually end up with more damage on their left cheeks.

For this reason, it is especially important to wear sunscreen every day. It is particularly important for those with a long commute or in sunnier areas.


No Foundation Foundation by Dr. Nicolas Perricone contains a non-chemical, SPF 30 so you can achieve sun protection while also receiving translucent coverage and anti-aging benefits.

Although the above 3 factors may not be the biggest contributors to aging skin. It is helpful to keep them in mind in your pursuit to perpetually youthful looking skin.
