Hello and welcome to Rejuvenate-Your-Skin.com.
Did you know that the skin is the largest organ of the human body?
Guess we’ve got you thinking over there eh! Yeah, you didn’t realize that your skin is your largest organ. So, no matter how you think of it, our skin is very important. Without the skin covering our body then all the muscles, bones and the other organs would be hanging out and will be all over the place – the skin holds everything in place together. It also protects our bodies, helps us maintain temperature and allows us to have the sense of touch.
We won’t go all through the details of what the skin is made of but let us have some basics here.
The skin is made up of three layers, the epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous layer.
The epidermis is the outer covering which you can see. Under the epidermis is the dermis which contains the nerve endings, blood vessels, oil and sweat glands. It also contains collagen and elastin. The third layer and is at the bottom, the subcutaneous layer, contains mostly fat and helps the body to stay warm and absorb shock when you hit something hard or when you fall down. It also contains the hair follicles.
All these three parts contribute and influence how your skin appears to be and make it look fresh and healthy.
Effects of Aging On The Skin
It is a fact that everyone ages. This is a natural process that occurs in your’s and everyone else’s bodies. While all the other organs depreciate with age, the skin shows the signs of age faster than any other. This is because the skin is very vulnerable to attack and is subject to daily wear and tear. Exposure to the sun’s UV rays, harsh weather, stress and our own bad habits also adds up to skin aging. As you age, the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous layer depreciates in performance, thence, collagen and elastin diminishes which leads to:
- Loss of the skin’s elasticity
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Thinner skin
- Poor Circulation
Taking care of the skin should start at an early age because it is more difficult to improve its appearance once the skin has been neglected. This is why the skin requires regular and daily care throughout its lifetime to remain healthy and maintain its youthful appearance.
While the aging process cannot be eliminated, it can be slowed down. This is where skin rejuvenation plays an important part on your skin care therapy.
Tips on How To Rejuvenate Your Skin
The very first question most people have when exploring the realm of anti-aging skin care is, what products have been proven to be effective to rejuvenate your skin?
Various information regarding the multitude of anti-aging treatments flooding the marketplace is the best way to make informed decisions for developing your own skin rejuvenation regime which incorporates the anti-aging skin care techniques, strategies and treatments that best address your own personal aging skin issues.
The basics of effective ways to rejuvenate your skin begin with the facts on anti-aging skin care treatments. There are several active ingredients that have been clinically proven to be effective skin rejuvenators. One of the most effective treatments is vitamin A derivatives such a retinol or retinyl palmitate.
The Retin A or Renova vitamin A treatments are the strongest although the most irritating treatments of the vitamin A options and are only available by prescription. If your skin needs major rejuvenation attention, ask your doctor if you are a candidate for the prescription vitamin A treatment of Retin A or Renova.
If not, including one of the other retinol alternatives in your skin care routine is an excellent strategy. The concentration of over-the-counter retinol products can range up to 1%. The basic rule of thumb is, the higher the concentration, the stronger the treatment. Be forewarned though, read the directions carefully because the stronger retinol products can be quite irritating to the skin. Starting slow and gradually working your way up to higher concentrations will allow your skin to adjust to the treatments better. The vitamin A derivative, Retinyl Palmitate, is the less irritating of the Vitamin A options and is considered to have quite effective rejuvenating qualities.
The next most beneficial anti-aging skin rejuvenation treatment is a chemical exfoliant such as an alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) or beta hydroxyl acid (BHA) product. The most popular of these acids is an AHA glycolic acid. Glycolic acid should be use in concentrations of 8% to 15% depending on your skin’s sensitivity. Start out with a lower concentration and gradually move up to a 10% then 15% concentration depending on your skin’s tolerance in order to avoid irritation.
The last consideration is including an antioxidant to contain the skin damaging free radicals as well as to encourage overall skin repair. Products containing Vitamin C Ester, Spin Trap, or CoQ10 are all good options to explore. Then, of course, there are other viable anti-aging treatments which can be incorporated into your regime depending on your particular skin rejuvenation needs which include DMAE, Kinerase or Kinetin, and GHK Copper Peptides.
Finally, the most critical and essential aspect to any successful skin rejuvenation regime is sunscreen, at least once a day, each and every day!
