About Aging Skin
Skin aging is inevitable. The lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness and elasticity are part of living a long life. With this premise, we are interested in ways to slow down the inevitable.
As far as skin aging goes, the sunlight is the most destructive factor. All the signs of premature aging - the lines, wrinkles, the loss of elasticity, and uneven skin tones - comes earlier if you are constantly out in the sun without protection. Unhealthy habits and diet are next. Skin is the largest organ in your body, it represents your overall health.
- Get protection from the aging influence of sunlight. Use broad spectrum, SPF 30 or more sunscreen. This is never enough to emphasize.
- Try Argireline to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It works just like how the botox work; it is particularly good for wrinkles caused by muscle movements.
- When using retinol, use it only at night. And with caution. Try it every other night for the first two weeks and gradually increase the frequency to every night.
- Use vitamin C and other antioxidants in skincare routine:
- Antioxidants such as resveratrol, CoQ10, green tea extract, goji berry extract, edelweiss extract are known to work against the appearance of aging skin.
- Good humectants and emollient combination is important. While keeping it simple, adding good moisturizer to your skincare routine is a good idea. Moisturizer with ceramides and niacinamide will boost the benefits of strengthening skin barriers.
Do not expect to see results from anti-aging skincare products right away. Anti-aging skincare routine usually takes time to show benefits. At the shortest, it takes a month to see the change.
Anti-aging routine should also include changes in habits, diet, and mindset. Remember that regular exercise, a proper diet, and optimism are more powerful anti-aging factors than a skincare routine.
