In order to eliminate your wrinkles and keep your skin looking its very best, the formula you are using has got to be able to repair sun damaged skin. The loss of your collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid cause the worst of the damage to your skin as you get older, but people tend to underestimate the role that the sun, and the free radicals that the UV radiation forms plays in making you look older.
The oxidative damage done to your cells by free radical activity definitely increases the severity of the lines and wrinkles connective tissue loss causes. The more time that you have spent pursuing outdoor activities the worse the damage will be. At some point you will more than likely suffer "age spots" from your time spent in the sun as well.
What an anti aging skin care product must contain if you are going to be successful in your attempt to repair sun damaged skin, is a wealth of antioxidants. Healing antioxidants are provided by those formulas that feature plant based oils and waxes, and can also be obtained from certain protein complexes and enzymes. Antioxidants rid the skin of free radicals, and repair all of the wrinkle producing damage they have caused.
Age spots are formed when cells in the skin have become so badly damaged that they undergo spontaneous melanin hyperpigmentation. An increase of melanin to darken the skin is supposed to be a defensive mechanism meant to minimize the effect of UV radiation. The appearance of age spots means that certain cells are in such bad shape that the defensive mechanism has permanently gone into effect.
In order to reduce the severity of this sporadic hyperpigmentation, you need a melanin inhibitor in your formula to repair sun damaged skin.
