Effective Rejuvenation of Aging Skin
What are the
effective aging skin treatments?
all wonder if there really is a "face lift in a jar" and, if so, what
is it and where can I get some- right now!
Of course, we all would love such a simple remedy.
But unfortunately there just isn't any skin care products that can
miraculously provide us with the fountain of youth right in our own
little pot of face cream.
The truth of the matter is a bit more complicated than a face lift
miracle in a jar.
Why does treating the signs of aging skin seem to be so difficult?
Because everyone's skin is different!
There are a variety of signs of aging that we see occur as the years
march along that can include, (just to name just a few):
Obviously, even if you have just a few of these aging skin symptoms,
don't you think it is rather unlikely that just one simple, little face
cream- the miracle cream in a jar- is going to effectively address such
range of issues?
- sun damage
- dry, scaly skin
- dark age spots
- fine lines and wrinkles
- mottled skin tone
- enlarged pores
- sagging facial skin
- ruddy skin texture
- loss of
- decrease in the skin's healing abilities
magic wand maybe, but who has one of those? (One that actually works
that is). But
don't despair, effective skin rejuvenation is possible with accurate
information and a well thought out strategy.
The first and foremost in creating an effective
regime is to use clinically proven anti-aging skin care treatments.
Although the market is saturated with products that claim to banish
wrinkles forever, firm sagging skin and make those age spots just up
and disappear right before your very eyes; there are in actuality, only
a handful of anti-aging treatments that have been independently
clinically proven to be effective.
For example, some of the more popular
favorites are Vitamin A- (better known as retinol), glycolic acid- (an
alpha hydroxy acid, AHA), Vitamin C Ester, and Vitamin K.
If you review the ingredient list and the product only has a 1%
concentration of glycolic acid, then why bother?
concentration of glycolic acid should be at least 8%.
product with a concentration of glycolic acid over 15% should only be
administered by a professional, you don't want to harm your skin!)
Vitamin A, retinol products should have at least a .15% concentration.
The strongest over the counter retinol product that you can buy without
a prescription is 1%.
Just these two skin care
treatments can accomplish a great deal in rejuvenating aging skin
- exfoliating dead skin cells
- stimulating skin cell repair
- encouraging new skin cell growth
- improving fine lines and wrinkles
- stimulating collagen production
- improving skin tone and texture
- decreasing enlarged pores
- improve acne and outbreaks of blemishes
- improving the overall health of the skin
Not bad for beginning a new skin
of different anti-aging treatments is also an important
to use if you want to achieve significant results.
Adding a powerful
antioxidant such as a stable form of Vitamin C Ester will help protect
the skin from further damage and improve the skin's healing ability.
A "Super" Vitamin K product is well known for improving those dark
circles under the eyes and is helpful is reducing the redness from
broken capillaries that can give the skin a red, ruddy appearance.
There are quite a few other effective anti-aging treatments
can find incorporated as active ingredients in skin care products.
