More about Anti-Aging

age

 

‘Antiaging skin care’ is a very poplar concept in today’s world. Today everyone wants to hide their age using antiaging skin care procedures (and a number of people are successful too). However antiaging skin care is not achieved by any magic potion. ‘Antiaging skin care’ is about discipline. It is about being proactive. Antiaging skin care is retarding the aging process. Here are a few tips for proactive antiaging skin care:

1. Maintain healthy eating habits: A well balanced diet is the key to maintaining a proper body metabolism. Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables (raw), they are the best source of fiber and have a very refreshing effect on your body. Avoid oily and fatty food; not only do they lack in essential nutrients but also cause obesity and other diseases which aid the aging process 1369_Page_3

2. Beat stress: This is probably the most important antiaging skin care measure. Stress disturbs the body metabolism and accelerates the aging process. Sleep, exercise and a relaxing bath, are all good ways of beating stress. Aroma-therapy is also known to bust stress. 

3. Drink a lot of water: Antiaging skin care can’t be any simpler than this. Water helps in flushing out the toxins from the body, hence keeping it clean and making it less prone to disease. Around 8 glasses of water (per day) is recommended by all doctors.

4. Regular exercise is a wonderful antiaging skin care procedure. Besides toning your muscles, it also helps in cleaning the skin by flushing out the toxins in the form of sweat. Exercise should be followed by a warm shower in order to completely remove the toxins.

5. Avoid the use of strong, chemical based products on your skin. Natural skin care products are a good option. Use of organic skin care products (home made or commercial) can be a very effective antiaging skin care measure.

young6. Do not overuse skin care products. Excessive and harsh application, both are harmful.

7. Do not ignore skin disorders; it can lead to permanent skin damage. Try over the counter medication and if that doesn’t help, immediately visit your dermatologist and seek his/her advice.

8. Vitamin C based skin care products are very popular means of antiaging skin care. However, these seem to oxidize very quickly (which makes them harmful for the skin). So store them properly. If the product turns Yellowish brown, it means that vitamin c has oxidized and the product is no longer suitable for use.

9. Protect your skin against UV radiation ; UV rays are known to speed up the aging process. So, a good sunscreen lotion should be a part of your antiaging skin care routine.

Anti-aging skin care products

banner8Anti-aging skin care products remind me of the song ’18 till I die’. Indeed, anti-aging skin care products are very popular today; and why not, who doesn’t want to look young for ever?

Talking of anti-aging skin care products, the first thing that comes to mind is vitamin C based anti aging skin care products. These products work by enabling the synthesis of collagen (a structural protein that is found in skin). This category of anti-aging skin care products is related to anti-oxidants. When looking for an anti-aging skin care product with vitamin C in it, make sure you find one that helps fight the look of aging through advanced Peptide Technology.

Peptides are very small pieces of proteins consisting of various numbers of amino acids. They are the most important part of all body and cellular activity. All proteins and enzymes which regulates metabolism are composed of peptides. Peptides have various functions and multiple activities in the skin. Peptides Signal You’re Skin to Make More Collagen – Applying peptides dir73ectly to your skin is a way to trick your skin into thinking that it has lost collagen recently and needs to make more. Peptides are effective in improving the appearance of fine lines. Peptides Deliver Copper into Your Skin – Because peptides are small, they can penetrate the skin’s protective barriers to get to the deeper layers. When copper is attached to a peptide, the peptide can deliver copper to the living layers of the skin. There is research showing that copper is an effective agent in skin healing which is why it has been used for years to treat chronic wounds. Copper peptides seem to promote collagen production and act as antioxidants. They are needed for natural healing and regeneration of your skin and to help remove damaged collagen. Neuropeptides Might Act Like Botox – Some peptides might block transmission of signals from nerves to your facial muscles. In particular, a neuropeptide called argireline has been shown in the laboratory to block the release of neurotransmitters from nerves Argireline absorbed all the way through the skin to the level of the muscle, and then it blocks contraction of the muscle, leading to smoother skin, similar to Botox.

Besides vitamin C, vitamin E and lipoic acid are anti-oxidants too. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble anti-oxidant that is found in human blood and helps in building resistance against infection. Vitamin E is also known to inhibit cancer. Liponic acid is known to combat the signs of aging very effectively by reversing the skin damage caused by the aging process.

Phytochemicals form the other category of anti aging skin care products. Phytochemical are special chemicals that are extracted from plants. There are a variety of phytochemicals that are in use today. Phytochemicals prevent occurrence of cancer of certain types; these include prostate cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer. That is why they find their place in anti-aging skin care product.

Some B-vitamins like B5, B6 and B12 are also in use for anti-aging skin care product.

The field of anti-aging skin care product is vast and needs a lot of research. Though the currently available products are effective, they still have challenges to combat. Hopefully, these challenges will get resolved in due course and help get better and cheaper anti-aging skin care product.

However, anti-aging skin care product should be used only as a supplement to the natural ways of skin and body care. So, drinking a lot of water, getting a good night sleep, exercising regularly, maintaining healthy eating habits and keeping stress at bay are essential means of delaying the aging process. No anti-aging skin care product can replace them really.

Seacret has an awesome Age-Defying Line that is infused with Peptide-Technology, which stimulates the reproduction of collagen and reduces the appearance of expression lines (smile, frown, & thinking lines).  Their age-defying line is ideal for those looking to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.  Give it a try today!

Anti aging skin care

banner8One of the most interesting topics on skin care is ‘anti aging skin care’. As one gets older, the natural defense of our skin (and in fact of the whole body) weakens. ‘Anti aging skin care’ is about protecting your skin from the negative effects of aging process. ‘Anti aging skin care’ helps in maintaining a young and fresh look for a longer period of time. However, ‘anti aging skin care’ doesn’t end just here. Besides maintaining your looks (good looks), ‘anti aging skin care’ is also about retaining the resistance to disease. Though the awareness about anti aging has increased over a period of time, still a lot of people are unable to recognize the aging symptoms (and hence are unable to determine if they are in need of additional anti aging skin care measures).

Here is a list of visible anti aging symptoms that will help you in the planning and execution of your strategy for anti aging skin care: baldness, forgetfulness, graying hair, wrinkle formation, loss of eyesight or hearing loss and menopause. The occurrence of one or more such symptoms is an indicator for upping the ante on anti aging skin care. Note that we are talking about introduction of additional measures for anti aging skin care, we are not talking about starting ‘anti aging skin care’ altogether. ‘Anti aging skin care’ actually starts much before the symptoms of anti aging appear.  Serious anti aging skin care is building and following a proper skin care routine much earlier in life (say in your teens). Anti aging skin care doesn’t mean adoption of any special skin care procedure but just following a normal procedure in the right earnest. Eating a lot of fruits, avoiding stress, drinking a lot of water and using natural therapies can delay the aging process.

Once the signs of aging start showing up, you should start using some additional measures in the form of anti aging skin care products. The market is full of anti aging skin care products. In fact there are so many anti aging skin care products that they will probably find you even before you find them. Also, with age, the skin undergoes significant change. So you will need to analyze your current skin care procedure to check if it still holds good i.e. if it is still suitable for your skin.

You should remember that aging is a natural process and there is nothing that can stop it from happening. All these anti aging skin measures can just help in delaying the aging process.

Aloe Vera – Aloe Barbadensis

Aloe Vera, also known as the medicinal aloe, is a species of succulent plant that probably originated in Northern Africa, the Canary 31Islands and Cape Verde. Aloe Vera grows in arid climates and is widely distributed in Africa and other arid areas.

Since Aloe Vera grows in extreme climates it has unique properties. It has been used for centuries by natives for many health purposes. Aloe plants are basically known for their power of healing various skin problems and can be used for cosmetic effects. It also helps in psoriasis, shingles, and others associated with itching also in cuts, abrasions and burns.

The gel and juices of Aloe Vera plants are anti-inflammatory which is the major reason for using it in cosmetic products. Since it is anti-inflammatory, it is soothing, toning, protecting and moisturizing the skin. Aloe Vera gel or juice can be applied to relief pains, cuts, sun burns, stings and swelling.

Aloe Vera juices or gel are used as moisturizing ingredients in cosmetics and the use of Aloe Vera in cosmetic products are so widely popular that it is now being used in almost all popular skin care products.

Studies have shown that aloe Vera speeds the healing process, particularly in burns, including those from radiation. It is also used by dermatologists to speed healing after facial dermabrasion, which helps remove scars from the top most layers of the skin. The other health benefits from the use of Aloe Vera includes soothing skin injuries affected by burning, skin irritations, cuts and insect bites. Its bactericidal properties relieve itching and skin swellings.

Aloe Vera possesses incredible moisturizing properties. Studies show that Aloe Vera improves the skin’s ability to hydrate itself, aids in the removal of dead skin cells and has an effective penetrating ability that helps transport healthy substances through the skin.

Aloe Vera is also known to help slow down the appearance of wrinkles as it can actively repair the damaged skin cells that cause the visible signs of aging. Components of Aloe Vera have been found to reverse degenerative skin changes by stimulating collagen and elastin synthesis.

Skin Health Benefit of Aloe Vera includes:

  • Speeds healing, tensile strength and repair of damaged skin wounds, burns and other injuries.
  • Holds moisture and adds flexibility to retard aging.
  • Fights infections with its antibacterial properties including fungus and bacteria.
  • Tightens and balances skin through astringent pH properties.
  • Moisturizes by carrying added emollients into the skin up to seven layers.
  • Have natural anti-inflammatory agents that reduce pain.
  • Minimizes scarring and may reverse scars less than five years old.
  • Sooth skin injured by burns, irritations, cuts and insect bites.
  • Increases the availability of oxygen to the skin.
  • Relieve itching and swelling of irritated skin.
  • Improve the effectiveness of sun screen products.

93Vitamin A – Retinyl Palmitate/ Retinol

Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that is stored in our liver. It contributes to normal growth and development while keeping our eyes, skin and immune system healthy. Vitamin A plays a key role in maintaining health.

Retinyl palmitate (vitamin A) is the normal form used for application on the skin and has great anti-ageing, superb anti-oxidant and moisturizing capabilities. It accelerates cell renewal and stimulates the fibroblast and collagen in the skin, thereby reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Due to its anti-oxidant properties, it is also a great anti-aging ingredient, and helps promote a softer smoother skin.

The topical application of vitamin A on the skin, when formulated into creams and lotions has a host of positive effects on the skin, which includes:

  • Increases the activity of enzymes found in the skin.
  • Stimulates the mitotic activity in the epidermis and thereby helps with the process of cell division.
  • Stimulates cell proliferation in the epidermis and thereby stimulates growth.
  • Helps to thicken the epidermis, which becomes thinner in aging.
  • Improves the elasticity of the skin.
  • Helps to normalize photo (sun) damaged skin.
  • Helps in wound healing.
  • Stimulates collagen formation in the skin.
  • Reduces UV-induced wrinkle formation.
  • Regulates keratin formation.
  • It is an anti oxidant.

The inclusion of vitamin A in cosmetics have been proven and internationally accepted as being safe – but it must be noted that this refers to Retinol and Retinyl palmitate.The skin also readily absorbs topically applied vitamin A and this has been proven in various experiments. Exposure to sunlight – which includes both UVA and UVB radiation – reduces the amount of vitamin A not only in the skin, but also the blood.

Patented Silica microstructure

The patent was granted to a novel material structure, for improving skin appearance and wrinkle reduction. The material is 83composed of microstructres made mostly from silica tiny particles. These microstructures resemble small spheres, filled with either air or liquid, and made of double layers of silica tiny particles. Other microstructures resemble ligaments, and other are a kind of hydrogel in which the other structures are suspended. Some particles are hydrophilic, namely water-loving, and some hydrophobic, or water repelling. This duality grants special properties to the cosmetic composition made of the material: it has high affinity to the skin (which has watery and oily zones), so it remains on the skin for many hours, as an invisible layer, even after washing the skin. The material contracts after spreading, pulling the skin along and physically flattens wrinkles. The wrinkle flattening has another effect: it invigorates and revives the skin underneath the wrinkle. It also acts as micro-sponges, releasing essential, pre-loaded oils, while afterwards absorbing sweat and sebum, thus maintaining cleaner skin.

Bodily Changes and Healthy Aging

banner1From the beginning of our birth, our body endures many changes. As we reach young adolescence, however the body experiences a series of senescence, or bodily changes abnormal, which the bodily functions start to decline. The body makes these changes, which most people will notice, the difference.

The musculus-skeletal system is the first area that most diseases and illnesses start. For this reason once, a person turns 35 years of age regardless of their activities, athletic nature, etc. Still, one can reduce such disease by avoiding injuries to the muscles and joints. You can do this by avoiding accidents when possible, abuse, excessive alcohol, drugs, tobacco and so on. You can increase your health by exercising, eating healthy, socializing with positive people, and avoiding environmental toxins.

Visiting your doctor is essential to prevent disease as well. When you visit your doctor, he takes the time to study your physical status based on the family history you gave to him. The doctor will consider family history, including hereditary diseases. Your doctor will take family history into consideration as he studies diagnostics, cures, prevention, and treatment to help you avoid disease. As noted earlier, our body starts to refuse by age 35, which our sensory organs will also start to take a rain check. At this time, the eyes are affected since they cannot remain focused on objects up close. In medical terms, this condition is known as presbyopia. This is why you see many people in the world over the age 40 wearing glasses, contact lens, bifocals and so on. Still, you see the younger generation with these same needs, which is a clear sign that aging progression is starting earlier for some. This is a note signaling hereditary makeup, or lifestyle based on environment, etc.

Many people as they grow older lose a degree of hearing. In some instances, people go deaf after 40. This condition is called presbycusis, which is a sign of aging. Since this condition is common for those aging, it is natural to dislike things you once liked. For instance, if you enjoyed concerts when you were younger, and now find that you do not enjoy concerts at all, it is because your hearing has changed, which means that the high-pitch of hearing is affected, which slowly wore down the lower hearing tone. When hearing is impaired, it often seems like those talking are inarticulate. Since the hearing is tarnished, the person will hear speech differently. For instance, the use of K may sound distorted, which affects comprehension. In other words, a person older may here the CH in a word, such as Chute Up, and think that someone is telling them to shut-up. The CH is distorted. You can help those with hearing difficulties by learning sign and body languages to help them relate to you. These people can also benefit from hearing aids, or Assistive Listening Devices. The devices act as hearing aids, since it allows a person to block out noise in the background while focusing on the speaker.  

We see natural healthy aging in this picture, yet in some instances aging signs are unnatural. For instance, if you incur lung cancer based on your history of smoking, or being around second-hand smoke, then the cause is unnatural.

As a person grows older his or her, weight changes as well and more so for those with family history of obesity. The body fat starts to change up to 30% by the time a person reaches 40. The changes affect the body tremendously, since this is the start of wrinkles and other natural aging signs.
