Aging is a part of life we all wish we could slow down and most especially the affect aging has on our skin. As we age our skin begins to lose the fatty tissue that help hold and smooth out our skin. Additionally, as skin ages it begins to feel dry, thin, and even begins to discolor. Aging of the skin can be slowed down and even reversed to a certain extent with the proper treatment and care. Like the rest of our body, your skin needs to be cared for properly. The Skin and Body Refinery will share some of the best anti aging treatments available to assist you in your skin goals!
Hydrate & Moisturize Skin
Dryness is one of the most common signs that skin is beginning to age. When your skin feels dry you will want to help hydrate the skin. When your skin feels itchy or dry, switch to a mild soap to wash your face. Never use hot water to wash your face. Instead, use cold or room temperature water. The use of moisturizer creams can also help keep your face more hydrated.
Choose the Best Antioxidant Moisturizer
Antioxidant based moisturizers help reduce the affects of aging skin by combating damaged cells caused by free radicals. Free radical damage can occur through stress, long vigorous exercise, and poor diet. If you’re using a moisturizing cream look for one that contains antioxidants to repair cell damage.
Benefits of Retinol Cream & Products
Retinol is derived from vitamin A which greatly benefits the skin and even helps reduce the affects of aging. Retinol is known to help support regeneration or re-growth of the skin cells and even slow down discoloration of the skin. Retinol can also help dry flaky skin, when combined with a daily moisturizer and sun screen.
Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C
You can also take supplements to improve your skin. Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a great natural supplement to fight lines and wrinkles. Generally, Alpha-Lipoic Acid supplements help your entire skin health and are recommended especially for those with regular sun exposure. Vitamin C has amazing affects on our skin. You should both consume and use Vitamin C as a topical. Vitamin C stimulates elastin and collagen production for the skin. This helps remove wrinkles and make the skin more elastic and smoother. Additionally, vitamin C helps skin pigment and erases sun spots. Vitamin C also help replenishes your skin’s hyaluronic acid, which naturally depletes as we age.
Anti Aging Exfoliants
Another way to treat aging skin is to exfoliate. Alpha hydroxy acid creams help exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells, promoting healthier skin. Having skin regularly peeled or exfoliated by a professional is also recommended to get the full benefits of the treatment. Both skin peel and exfoliation removes dead skin cells, prevents wrinkles, sun spots, and skin discoloration.
Wearing Sunscreen Everyday
Another way to combat aging is to wear sunscreen daily. Even light exposure to the sun has its affects. UV damages the skin and ages the skin faster. Always remember to wear sunscreen, even during the winter.
