Do you want to know the secret to looking young? You're in luck because I'm here to tell you! As you age, your skin tone, texture, and elasticity changes. This means the next time you step out in the sun, your skin is more likely to wrinkle and dry out. But there are many products on the market today that can help you fight wrinkles and dry skin, and help you look years younger.
Aging is associated with a drop in collagen production and collagen holds your skin together which makes it appear firm and taut. So wrinkles and sagging start to appear. In your 20's your collagen levels dip approximately 1% per year. The first five years in menopause it drops to 30% and 2% a year after that time. Around age 50 the PH level of your skin decreases and may cause your skin to become more sensitive and irritated. To help maintain and restore moisture for the skin barrier moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties help the skin barrier integrity.
Our anti aging skin care tips to maintain optimal skin care
1.) Retinol: is the most recommended product due to extensive research. It increases collagen production so it decreases the appearance of wrinkles.
4.5 out of 5 with 5,278 ratings.
Review: I’ve been using these serums for about six months and I love them. The vitamin c serum isn't sticky at all like other brands and the retinol serum isn’t too strong and overpowering for my sensitive skin.
2.) Glycolic acid: spurs collagen production and helps keep your skin smooth and your pores appear visibly smaller.
Rating 4.5 out of 5. 1,195 ratings. Glycolic is a simple ingredient that is the same whether you pay $10 or $100. If you can find a low cost version, it is a god send. There’s no need to spend hundreds of dollars. But some so-called glycolic products don’t have enough of the active ingredient to do anything. So it’s a waste of money and time. But this one is an excellent version of the product, and I highly recommend. I have been using generic glycolic for years and I am told my skin looks 20+ years younger than my age. Even my dermatologist says she is shocked at my skin appearance, and asked what I do — as if I’m following some fancy regiment. When I tell her and others that I simply use generic 8% glycolic they are a bit shocked.
3.) Vitamin C: Without this antioxidant your body cannot produce collagen and stabilizes the collagen you may already have in your body.
Rating: 4.3 out of 5 for 114,776 ratings. Review: I did my own research. And actual skin care experts that hold a degree say the opposite. Retinol CAN be used with vitamin c products. Successfully. They don't cancel each other out. They work beautifully together. And vitamin c actually helps retinol work BETTER by stabilizing it and extending its effectiveness. It turns out that using retinol without vitamin c or any other potent antioxidant is keeping your skin from reaping all the benefits of using retinol!!! Which is why this serum is so important in your skin care regimen.
4.) Red light therapy stimulates collagen production and density which effects skin tone and smoothness.
