There are some steps you can take to reverse skin aging. Because the skin is a bodily organ, it reacts to the environment we place it in. So, if we have done little to look after ourselves throughout our life, this will become very evident as we age, and the skin is the first place it shows.
There are many contributing factors to premature aging, but most of them can be avoided. Excess exposure to the sun is the worst culprit, and causes more damage than the other factors all put together. Pollution, smoking, alcohol, fatty and sugary foods, pollution, air-conditioning and free radicals all affect the skin and how well it can withstand the aging process.
As we age, collagen and elastin are naturally lost from the skin. These two proteins give the skin its texture and elasticity; it is the loss of them that creates lines, wrinkles and a dull complexion. Some skin products include these substances in their creams, but they are largely ineffective as the molecules are too large to pass through the pores into the skin.
There are some products that stimulate your own body to produce more elastin and collagen. "Cynergy TK" does this, and so does "Phytessence Wakame", which is made from a type of seaweed that Japanese women have been using for centuries, and they have beautiful skins in old age.
There is nothing like a nutritional diet, plenty of sleep, rest and relaxation, and some exercise to make your skin look more youthful, and to help soften wrinkles and expression lines. Learn to deal with stress in your life, as this has an aging effect; learn meditation, yoga or tai chi.
To help you reverse the look of aging skin, invest in some quality skincare products.
Natural products don't contain harsh or toxic chemicals, so they are a safer option. You will need a cleanser and a moisturizer for aging skin, but a hydrating mask will also help to soften wrinkles and lines, and give your complexion a fresher look. Remember to wear a sunscreen when outdoors.
There are the surgical and filler options available today, to help you reverse skin aging. These are expensive, traumatic and can have harmful side effects. Also, they tend to last only a short time, and you have to return for more surgery or injections. Before you decide to go this way, make sure you research the long-term effects of such treatments so you know exactly what to expect.
