Anti-Aging Beauty Must Haves

As a general rule from the age of 35 laughter lines and frown lines are often already apparent our skin texture has become uneven and furrows are starting to form. From the age of 40-50 the issue changes now its time to fight the effects of hormonal changes (dry skin, then sagging skin, biology ageing) from the age of 60 sagging increases, skin loses its suppleness and glow making wrinkles much more apparent.

Knowing the dynamics of our skin is of importance, our skin contains protein fibers called collagen, elastin and reticulin, each of these key proteins play an important part to our skins structure for example; Reticulin supports the structure within the dermis, elastin provides (elastic) stretch to the skin allowing it to regain its shape, and collagen gives our skin its strength and support. All of which is vital in retaining a youthful appearance.

With wrinkles being the non-stoppable force of time, and with so many anti-ageing products and treatments on the market it’s hard to know what to choose.  Collagen is the most abundant protein in the skin, making up 75% of our skin. We lose about 1% of collagen a year, and the ability to repair the skin becomes more difficult as the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessens, our cells lose their ability to produce more of their youthful components. So as we age our skin becomes dryer, thinner and less able to fix it self, the Hyaluronic acid starts to diminish leaving the skin less well supported, so lines and wrinkles develop. So, here are some home care ideas:
