Beginning with your skin type (normal, dry, oily, or combination) and then pinpointing your most pressing beauty concerns is a sensible method to follow when selecting your next anti aging product. This article will overview some causes of the most common skin aging concerns such as age spots, dark circles under the eyes, sagging skin, and wrinkles. More importantly, possible treatments for these common complaints will be revealed.
Age spots, also called liver spots, are probably the most prevalent and unflattering signs of aging aside from fine lines and wrinkles. Produced by excessive sun exposure, age spots are large brown spots that look like overgrown freckles. Sun damaged skin is unable to deliver nutrient-rich filled blood to the surface of the skin. In order to reverse this impediment, capillaries need to dilate bringing forth more nutrient-rich blood to the skin’s surface. A compound called Dithiolane-3-Pentanic Acid, or D3PA for short, does just that. D3PA helps dilate capillaries and increases healthy blood flood to the skin minimizing the effects of age spots.
Dark Circles Under The Eyes
Dark circles often occur when the skin under the eyes becomes thin and more transparent as a person naturally ages. Due to thinner skin, blood flow in veins under the eyes is much more apparent making the skin appear darker. Applying cool cucumber slices to the affected area is a well-known home remedy that will bring some relief. Stimulating collagen production within your body will thicken those thin layers of skin causing the dark circles to be less prominent.
Again, sagging skin is an undeniable indication that your body is not producing enough collagen to combat this common beauty complaint. This is not entirely your fault though. As we age, collagen production, a major contributor to healthy looking skin, decreases in the body. For women, this decrease in collagen production is heightened by menopause. Collagen loss prevention and focusing on new collagen production is an essential first step to maintaining healthy looking skin.
Fine Lines, Wrinkles, & Crow’s Feet
And lastly, the most common skin aging complaints are due to unsightly wrinkles. The appearance of wrinkles on your face dates a person, just like the rings of a tree that has been cut down. Unfortunately, the number of fine lines and wrinkles on your face is not an accurate indicator of your actual age. Collagen synthesis, again, is essential to maintaining youthful, healthy-looking skin.
Unlike invasive treatments, like Botox injections and face lifts, science has extended a helping hand to those wanting an alternative to painful procedures. Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 is a compound that offers many of the same results as Botox minus the injections and risk of damage to the skin or facial muscles. AH3 merely blocks the nerve signals that control facial muscle contractions. This impediment significantly reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, crow?s feet, and other common aging concerns.
So there you have it, a rule of thumb guide to purchasing your next anti aging skin care product. The above anti aging skin treatments are by no means the only effective methods of turning back the hands of time but are a good starting point. The anti aging compounds Dithiolane-3-Pentanic Acid (D3PA) and Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (AH3) both can be found in a product called LifeCell, an all-in-one antiwrinkle cream, firming cream, 24-hour moisturizer, age-spot reducer, corrective eye treatment, lip-plumper and make-up base!
