How to Address Aging Skin Concerns?
Overall, in spite of decades of research, there is no specific cause of aging phenomenon and the changes that we associate with the aging process. Instead, aging seems to be many processes or factors that interact and influence each other: cellular wear & tear by environment and lifestyle; DNA damage; hormone changes; immune system changes; and free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules); etc.
The basics of effective skin rejuvenation begin with the facts on anti-aging skin care treatments. There are several active ingredients that have been clinically proven to be effective skin rejuvenators.
Treatment points to consider for addressing Aging Skin Concerns
- Add a powerful antioxidant such as a stable form of Vitamin C Ester. This will help protect the skin from further damage and improve the skin’s healing ability.
- Use a “Super Vitamin K" product. This is well known for improving those dark circles under the eyes and is helpful in reducing the redness from broken capillaries that can give the skin a red, ruddy appearance.
- Use a DMAE product to help firm sagging skin.
- Use Hydroquinone in concentrations of 1% to 2% to bleach those stubborn age spots.
- Some experts say that submerging your face in pineapple juice for about 30 seconds can make your skin look up to 10 years younger, if done everyday.
- Olive-oil based products are nutrient-rich for dry and aging skin.
- Any product with a concentration of glycolic acid over 15% should only be administered by a professional; you don’t want to harm your skin.
- It is extremely important to choose skin rejuvenation treatments that will not only treat your specific skin care issues but that contain the appropriate combination of active anti-aging ingredients.
- Many of the formulations found in skin rejuvenation products are designed to treat a specific skin care need or, as in the case of combination products that include a few select active ingredients that have proven to interact well with each other, will address a range of aging skin care issues.
Few options other than Anti-Aging creams to address Aging Concerns
- Chemical Peel - There are a variety of natural or synthetic agents such as alpha-hydroxy fruit acids that can be used for chemical peels. One commonly used peeling agent is alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) - a group of exfoliants derived from fruit, sugar, and milk acids.
- Laser Resurfacing - It is also called laser peel. In this procedure, a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes. However, it is also effective in treating facial scars or areas of uneven pigmentation.
