As we grow older...
As we grow older,. the skin starts to lose tone and elasticity. Beginning at around 35, the skin's natural ability to produce callagen and hyaluronic acid decreases. Moisture retention is lessened. When combined with sun damage and other factors, signs of aging intesify in the form of wrinkles, roughness, fines lines, dryness and hyperpigmentation.
The development of anti-aging products over the past few years has been remarkable. These products include serums and creams with high percentage of anti-oxidants and growth factors. The discovery of hyaluronic acid and other carriers made it possible for these products to penetrate deeper in the skin. The most effective products fall into the category of serums and creams.
One of the two best examples are SkinMedia TNS Recovery Complex that contains Nouricel-MD, a mix of human growth factors and other elements discovered through wound healing. The other example is SkinCeutical C+E+Freulic and Phlorethin CF Serum. These are 3rd generation anti-oxidants that protect against skin cancer.
The common denomitator of the anti-aging creams are that they are highly nourishing and hydrating. What sets them apart is the different active ingredients they have, which why it is often a good idea to rotate between the creams.
On the non-invasive side, facials with anti-aging products, microdermabrasion and rejuvenating peels such as 35%-70% glycolic acid; 20%-30% Beta-lift salicylic peels; and other kinds of peels such as those offered through the SkinMedica Peel System slow down the aging process and reduce it's visible signs and result in younger looking skin.
