Fighting the Effects of Aging

Skin Information .COM

Our skin ages like the rest of our bodies. You may notice that your skin is not at elastic as it once was, or that you’ve developed fine lines, wrinkles, or age spots. While this is all a natural process, there are tips to mitigate or cover some of these undesirable effects. For more general skin care tips, visit www.dermatologycare.ca.

Fighting Fine Lines and Wrinkles:

Wrinkles and fine lines are probably the first things we think about when we think about aging skin. The most important thing to remember, when you notice these signs, is to protect yourself from further exposure to the sun as they can speed up the aging process. Other procedures such as chemical peels or laser treatments can reverse existing damage to the skin.

Other treatment options for wrinkles:

There are various topical creams that contain vitamins or antioxidants which can help your skin regenerate, and become healthier. Coenzyme Q10 can reduce cell damage from UVA rays, and has been shown to reduce wrinkles.

Hairstyling:

A change in your hair style, or getting your eyebrows tweezed can make a drastic change in your overall appearance, and can make you appear years younger.

What is collagen?

Collagen is a substance that we naturally produce, which keeps our skin healthy and young looking. Some skincare contain products like retinoids which help to boost the user’s natural collagen levels. Most products that contain retinoids will be prescription.

Take care of the eyes:

Eyelids often become irritated from dryness. A moisturizing routine can help to protect the eyelids from losing water, and drying.

Creams and Lotions:

If you are in your fifties or spend considerable time outside as an occupation, your skin may be becoming drier. If you have been using moisturizing lotions in the past, switch to moisturizing creams in order to replenish your skin’s moisture and eliminate the itch.

Crow’s feet:

Reduce the chance of developing wrinkles around the eyes by applying sunscreen and wearing protective eyewear. Always remember that protection and prevention is the best treatment when it comes to skincare.

Can I eliminate wrinkles altogether?

Moisturizers can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but no skincare product can completely eliminate wrinkles. As much as you may dislike the wrinkled look, understand that they are part of a natural process of aging, and should not be regarded as something to be ashamed of.
