What are wrinkles and hot get rid of them

December 01, 2020

How to get rid of wrinkles? What are wrinkles and hot get rid of them? The question is now being answered!

Wrinkles and fine lines are a hallmark of chronological ageing. As we age, skin’s repair mechanism starts to function less effectively and the skin becomes thinned in appearance and that reduces it’s ability to hold moisture, resulting in dryness. Skin cells are not shed and renewed as easily and vigorously as they did before, and dead skin cells build up, which gives the skin a rough texture. Also, collagen and elastin levels are diminished which makes the structure of the skin to become compromised. All of these factors, together, result in accentuating wrinkles and give the skin a saggy appearance.

The causes of skin aging that culminate in these processes can be external and internal.

External causes may be :

  • Sun damage through prolonged sun exposure – it gives way to wrinkles and a leathery appearance as a person ages. This is because the UVA and UVB rays from sun exposure break down elastin and collagen, and damage the DNA of skin cells.
  • Gravity –  it constantly pulls on our bodies and it’s effect is seen on the skin more prominently as we age.
  • Tobacco smoking : Cigarette smoke contains thousands of chemical, most of which cause collagen and elastin to break down and can result in premature skin aging; nicotine, additionally, causes blood vessels to constrict, which reduces the amount of oxygen and nutrients that can reach the skin. But unlike other processes mentioned, this is a factor that can easily be controlled and completely cancelled out!
  • Cell senescence like mentioned above
  • Bone loss – which means less architectural support for skin
  • Stress - As we worry, our body produces cortisol, a hormone that helps the body to prepare for “fight or fl” But while cortisol is beneficial in helping us prepare for danger, it inhibits the production of collagen.
  • Genetics – genes may hinder or help in the process of skin renewel.
  • Loss of estrogen due to perimenopause and eventually menopause – estrogen produces healthier skin cells and more resilient elastin.
  • Fat depletion – fat content becomes depleted and deteriorates over time.

Getting older should be seen as a privilege and not a problem. Rather than whining about ageing, lets be grateful that we are still here. Most people don’t get to see their 40s, 50s and 60s.

Any skin care product that can help produce healthier skin cells through providing cell communicating ingredients, reinforce the epidermis through skin-identical ingredients, protect the skin from environmental stress, for example anti-oxidants and sunscreen, can encourage healthy cell production, generate healthier collagen and elastin, and prevent cellular damage. Exfoliants can be used to remove the unhealthy buildup of dead skin cells on the surface.

Here’s a list of ingredients with a minimal skincare routine, morning and evening, to maintain your skincare barrier for a longer period of time and attain your goals of that supple, soft, smooth, glowing skin!

  1.   Cleansing

cleansing your skin

Our skin is our external defense against the environment. It comes in contact with pollutants, dirt, and microorganisms throughout the day. Additionally, the makeup that we apply has a number of components in it that are in very close contact with the skin for hours and hours every day! Our skin produces its natural oil, which acts as a magnet and attractant – holding all those products and smut. This can cause our pores to clog, which can result in acne, and the bacteria that are trapped in the grime can result in a number of infections. Cleansing should be a part of both morning and evening skincare routine. The product used should be enough to remove the buildup on the skin, which may cause decay of skin cells and bacterial growth. It’s important to remember that it is necessary that the cleanser be massaged into the skin long enough to ensure that dirt is removed. However, you should be cautious to avoid scrubbing the skin, as this could cause irritation.

To ensure thorough cleansing without tugging and pulling at your skin, you should try this facial cleansing brush available at our website – it is also on sale!

Facial Cleansing Brush

Choose a cleanser that his hydrating and soft on the skin and does not contain harsh chemicals like harsh surfactants which can strip the skin of its natural oils and moisture. Most cleansers also contain emollients and moisturizers like glycerin and barrier repair ingredients like ceramides, which can be great for maintaining the skin’s natural barrier!

 

     2. Exfoliate the skin regularly

    Our skin undergoes a natural exfoliation process continuously. New skin cells are formed in the bottom layers of skin and migrate to the outermost layers, where they are shed approximately every 30 days. This rejuvenation process is necessary to heal and repair damaged skin. When cellular turnover is slowed down because of aging, dead skin cells are built up on the surface. At-home regular exfoliation is required to ensure skin rejuvenation. As the health of the skin improves, it becomes noticeably more elastic, less sensitive, and, generally, more healthy, younger looking.

         3.Toner

    Find a good hydrating toner with a formula made especially for your skin type. A toner’s job is to gently refresh your skin without stripping it of its natural moisture. Toner removes any traces of dirt, and impurities that may be left behind after you washing and cleansing your face. The use of a toner in the daily skincare routine can have major positive results on the appearance and tightness of pores that are mostly particularly visible on aging skin. Toner also restores the skin’s pH levels and smoothens any rough patches and gives an even skin tone! As for application, you'll want to soak a cotton ball with the toner and gently sweep it across your skin after cleansing every morning and before you go to bed at night.

     Choose a toner with soothing ingredients like aloe and eucalyptus, moisturizers, exfoliating ingredients like salicylic acid and glycolic acid.

    Skincare Serum

              5.Moisturizer

     Water regularly evaporates from inside the body through our skin in the form of sweat, even if it is not visible, the process is still happening! It’s a basic biological function. Because it is continuously losing moisture to the environment, the skin is the first part of the body to experience dehydration. It becomes dry – especially in environments that are cold, arid and dry. Moisturizers are necessary regardless of your skin type. Choose moisturizers with good emollient properties, like the ones that contain plant oils, ceramides, cocoa butter, shea butter. Humectants are another group of ingredients you should be looking for, some of which are glycerin, honey, aloe vera, amino acids and hyaluronic acid.

         6.Protect

    The most important step when it comes to slowing down the process of skin aging is Sun protection! Ultraviolet light is one of the main causes of skin damage. Sunscreen should be applied every single day – regardless of your skin tone. When outdoors for extended periods of time, protective clothing and the application of a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to exposed areas of skin should be routine.

        7.Treatments

    Treatments such as retinoids, which is a term used for Vitamin A compounds such as retinol and retinoic acid are used topically to repair sun-damaged skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Retinoids are available in prescription strength and also over the counter. It is best to start with lower concentrations and let your skin adjust to it slowly. Vitamin A increases cell turnover and helps aging skin renew itself faster as this process slows down with age.
