Every face tells a story. A smile, a frown, a lifted eyebrow - our faces are expressive and help us connect with those around us. Our faces are also on the front line, bombarded by the sun, air pollution, and dirt. When we are working too hard or skipping our daily doses of vitamins and water, our faces show this, too. Whether we’re smiling, laughing, crying or puzzling, our faces deserve the best care we can give. Nurturing our faces also lifts our mind and spirit along the way. Having a consistent skincare routine and great products to use will give you the extra edge you need to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
What processes occur in our body as we age, and how can we stop them? These are the most frequent questions not only in mature age, but also with younger women who are increasingly proactive about their future appearance. Let's start with what changes take place in our skin with the passage of time.
First and foremost the content of collagen and elastin in the skin decreases. These substances serve as a kind of scaffolding, they are responsible for making the skin firm and elastic.
Another problem is the reduced volume of hyaluronic acid, responsible for retaining water in the dermis. Its low content results in the appearance of wrinkles not only on the face, but also the neck and chest. Over time, elasticity of the skin decreases and it slowly loses its natural regenerative abilities.
Regardless of the age, your skin also has to fight against its external enemies – alcohol and coffee when consumed in excessive amounts, drastic slimming treatments, cold and/or dry air, sunlight and stress.
The three main factors affecting your skin's condition are:
1. Balanced diet
Our skin's condition in maturity is not just a matter of genes and cosmetics, but also how we treated it and fed it throughout our lives. Thus:
Eat as many raw fruits and vegetables as possible
Always go for unprocessed products
Choose dark, whole-grain breads, rice, pasta
Oxygenate yourself by enjoying sports or taking brisk walks (about 30 min 3 x a week)
Sleep well – eight hours of sleep is necessary to restore the skin’s power of self-regeneration
For mature skin; anti-aging skin care focused on active stimulation of collagen and elastin for self-renewal will provide comprehensive care to improve your skin condition. Keep good a balance between a healthy lifestyle, a balanced diet, supplementation and your skin will reward you with a beautiful appearance!
