Skinny on Wrinkles
Apr 07, 2011 06:31PM
If life is about change, our skin is proof. We are at the mercy of many forces as we age. How your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors: your lifestyle, diet, heredity, and personal habits. Wrinkles and spotted skin are attributed to normal aging, sun exposure (photoaging), and loss of subcutaneous support (fatty tissue between your skin and muscle). Other factors include stress, gravity, daily facial movement and obesity. Rough and slack skin is due to the loss of elastic tissue (elastin and collagen.).
Choosing an anti-aging skin care system can be helpful in reversing the signs of aging. Products with nanosphere delivery systems allow product nutrients to penetrate more effectively. Vitamin C promotes collagen, elastin and the strength and elasticity of the skin. Plant-derived skin protectants and moisturizers can help to improve the appearance of the skin’s epidermal lipid layer, minimizing water loss and helping skin metabolism. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that penetrates skin quickly and absorbs into the skin's cells to increase cell metabolism. Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids activate healthy cells while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while peptides improve skin roughness and less the appearance of wrinkle volume and wrinkle depth.
