Aging is the worst enemy of every man or woman. As we age, our body inevitably goes through changes. Being constantly exposed to everything we put ourselves through in both physical and emotional way, facial skin can be said to suffer the most. But, can the process of aging be prevented? Although we cannot change the course of nature, we can slow it down and disguise its consequences. Owing to the never ending development of science, we can make our faces look rejuvenated and purified.
What are we really fighting against?
In order to decide what skin treatment is the most suitable for you, it’s crucial to understand the skin aging process. The protective layer of our largest organ – epidermis is consisted of dead cells that are regularly being replaced by new ones every 6 – 8 weeks. However, the renewal wouldn’t be possible without the processes related to the inner layer – dermis, or popularly known as ‘true skin’. It’s responsible for oil and sweat production, collagen and elastin production, the nourishment of epidermis.
Over the years, collagen and elastin levels start decreasing; oil and sweat production declining; and circulation slows down which prevents the sufficient nourishing of the outer layer. Consequently, our skin gradually loses its strength and elasticity and becomes thinner and dryer. On account of this, the number of research has been conducted with aim to provide different ways of anti-aging facial treatment that would slow down the aging process and even help cure skin disorders.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"
While ‘intrinsic aging’ depends on genes and natural processes, ‘extrinsic aging’ is related to lifestyle and environmental factors. Which indicates that it’s better to make some changes regarding bad habits than to experience their consequences. For instance, shield your skin from the sun with the sunscreen before going out. Due to harmful UV rays, tanning leads to premature skin aging and occurrence of age spots. If you are a smoker, quit smoking. It influences wrinkles and unhealthy skin complexion. Likewise, avoid consuming alcohol which dehydrates the skin. Instead, drink plenty of water for hydration and apply high quality products to keep it moisturized.
Do you use proper products?
Many people carelessly opt for products according to their labels or attractive packages. However, each product is supposed to be made of ingredients that trigger specific skin problem. Dead Sea Minerals Cosmetics offers a number of products that contain what is necessary for younger and healthier skin. Taking Mogador Argan Oil Moisturizing Day Cream as an example, it can be seen that besides other active ingredients it contains Dead Sea minerals and algae which are recognized to have antioxidant and anti-aging effects. After all, Moroccan organic argan oil is rich in Vitamin E and fatty acids that affects enhancement of skin elasticity and reduction of wrinkles.
Effective cosmetic treatments
Apart from skincare products, rejuvenation also includes treatments and procedures.
For instance, cosmetic surgery experts claim that BBL therapy is effective not only for the treatment of skin rejuvenation, but also for the treatment of acne, redness and pigmentation. It’s a therapy whose light influences the heating effects which further leads to new collagen production in the dermis. The study has shown that 3 treatments on yearly basis are enough to diminish signs of aging process. Another way to make your skin rejuvenated is by skin resurfacing. It implies removal of the skin top layer and it can be done in several ways. One of which is laser resurfacing. Once the skin layer is removed, skin heals by forming new cells and thus providing fresh younger look. Certainly, there is always a possibility of injectable fillers.
Do it yourself
Nothing can help you unless you help yourself first. Help your skin by keeping it nourished with vitamins both from the inside as much from the outside. Papaya works as an antioxidant rich in vitamins A, C and E that tightens your skin. For extra anti-aging benefits you can use its peel for rubbing your face. In order to get rid of the dead cells, use lemon juice full of AHAs and Vitamin C. The nutrients found in cucumber affect spots, freckles, sunburn and cellulite. The fruit that diminishes wrinkles and acne is definitely banana. It’s full of magnesium, iron, zinc, iodine, potassium and many vitamins. For skin rejuvenation, use the effect of lycopene found in tomatoes. Because of high amount of vitamin C it influences the collagen production and consequently protects your skin from aging.
Although skin aging is a natural process, it also depends on your lifestyle and way you take care of your body and health. Therefore, make some life changes and start rejuvenating your skin.
