We at Wailea People and Paws Pharmacy always put your health first, that’s why we are huge proponents of starting the anti-aging process from the inside out. So while you’re looking at how to prevent aging on Maui, we hope you’ll follow a few of our recommendations to make sure you’re feeling young on the inside (and looking it on the outside too!) Even starting with one daily change can help you prevent more severe sigbs of aging. That’s why we want to simplify the process of preventing aging on Maui and give you one simple daily assignment to help potentially prevent years of premature aging. 

Sunscreen (and other protective gear)!

If you’re wondering how to prevent aging on Maui, then we probably don't have to remind you that you live on an island. A tropical one at that! The sun is wonderful for a whole plethora of reasons, including mental and physical health. We are lucky to be able to access our daily dose of Vitamin D practically year-round by simply stepping outside, it’s a privilege not many can boast. That being said, the sun is one of the most harmful elements to your skin. At worst it can cause skin cancer, but even at best, sustained presence in the sun can cause hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and other premature signs of aging. 

We know that the concept of sunscreen isn’t new, and it can seem like a drag remembering it. We remember being young and opting out of lathering up, hoping to get a deeper and darker tan unprotected (if we could ONLY go back and show our younger selves the damage those days tanning on the beach have done!). Trust us, years of younger-looking skin is better than a week-long tan. Anytime you’re going outside makes sure to put on sunscreen, especially on the parts of your body that most often are exposed (face, neck, chest, shoulders…). Whenever you can, try to wear other protective gear like hats, UV shirts, and sunglasses. To help us remember to always wear sunscreen, we’ve incorporated its application as the last step in our morning skin care routine (even if we plan on sitting on the couch binging Netflix all day), at this point it’s so second nature we don’t even have to think about it! 

Wailea People and Paws Pharmacy has tons of sunscreen options to choose from to help you prevent again on Maui. Check out our inventory of reef-safe sunscreen so you can protect the environment while you protect your skin (and your youth!)

Consider NAD

NAD (otherwise known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a chemical compound shown to be important to the anti-aging process. Wailea People and Paws offers a range of NAD products including over the counter versions that are pre cursors for your body to make it itself (Tru Niagen) or Wailea People and Paws can formulate NAD just for you with a doctor’s prescription. We can formulate this prescription for IV, sub cutaneous injection, nasal spray, or skin cream, to make it as simple and easy for you as possible!

Aging is inevitable, but it’s never too late to start making changes or seeking help to address concerns with aging. Now that you are taking this simple step to improve your daily habits, any additional anti-aging treatments will likely have a more prolonged and noticeable effect.
