About Anti Aging
Living in a world that is filled with constant change and varying lifestyles, women, including men, of today are turning to different concoctions of anti-aging products that promise to improve their skin's complexion, and get a brighter, healthier, smoother, and younger-looking skin.
What is Anti-Aging?
Anti-aging means different things to different people. Used to be, we ultimately know that it refers to the products that minimize or erase wrinkles, then it turned to mean the skincare regimen and products that women on their 30s and above do and use, respectively, to stop and delay the appearance of wrinkles.
And today, eFacialMasks.com is one with the world of the beauty fanatics who say that anti-aging is as simple as everything that we do to keep our skin young, regardless of age, and still regardless of how basic or elitist that skincare routine or the products that we use may be.
Our Five-Word Tip to Anti-Aging
Keeping a young and healthy complexion can be as simple keeping our five-word tip "Prevention is Better than Cure" as your lifetime guiding rule to skincare.
It's best to start anti-aging skincare routines at a very young age. This way, anti-aging can be as simple as nourishing the skin to enhance the replenishment of the substances in the skin cells that keep us young but that naturally deplete with age and prevent various kinds of skin problems.
Think about how sagging skin can precede wrinkle appearance by 20 years, how wrinkles can lie invisible to the naked eye for decades, how acne, pollution, cigarette smoke, alcohol, and the sun’s UV light boost free radicals that ruin the structure of our skin cells, and why aged skin prove to be irreversible.
These things prove that ant-aging is not a mere skincare routine to cure and prevent wrinkles when they have already appeared or about to appear, but using the right skincare products, particularly organic-based, in our daily skincare routine during our lifetime to avoid the underlying causes of skin aging.
The Role of Skincare Products to Anti-Aging
1. Control the depletion of substances in our skin cells that helps us look young.
Firming Masks, Collagen Masks, and Hydrating Masks are among the anti-aging products that perform this function because they contain high levels of nutrients that help to replenish and boost the production of collagen, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, and coenzyme Q10 which are among the substances that support the structure of the skin cells.
Collagen and elastin give the skin its natural firmness and promote its elasticity. Hyaluronic acid acts as glue among the skin cells so that the skin remains firm. Coenzyme Q10 helps to provide energy to the skin cells that is why it is said to effectively increase the collagen in the skin cells, help revive the skin’s elasticity, and avoid wrinkle formation.
2. Prevent Free Radical Damage
Anti-aging can never be complete without incorporating antioxidants in our diet and skincare products. These antioxidants are the powerful chemical substances that counter free radical damage which hastens skin aging.
Free radicals are dynamic and unstable chemical particles that occur as a by-product of the chemical processes in our body, that’s why it’s said that almost everything that we do and that occur in our skin cells create free radicals. Free radical activities are hastened by acne , cigarette smoke, pollution, stress, frequent sun exposure, alcoholic drinks, dirt, dust, and excess oil in the skin.
In the hope to regain their balance, free radicals steal the molecules of other cellular substances, like collagen, making a new free radical out of this Collagen from which an electron has been stolen. This chain reaction can go on until the cell walls of a skin cell are chipped, thereby impairing its normal functionality, and cause premature sagging and aging of our skin.
Antioxidants help to stop the damaging chemical chain reaction of free radicals because they have a way to lend their electrons without becoming free radicals themselves. Among the rich sources of antioxidants are red wine, green tea, berries, and extracts of tea tree, orchid, and aloe. The functions of these antioxidants are enhanced with the presence of Vitamins A, C, and E, thus anti-aging products that bear these nutrients are undoubtedly effective to counter free radical damage in the skin cells.
Nourish and Protect the Skin to Defy Aging
Many of us have grown up to the fact that a healthy diet, the 8-12 glasses of water a day rule, and exercise are good for the skin, but still wonder and ask, "Why don’t they seem to work?"
It is because nutrition from food and water intake are distributed to the other parts of the body before they even come to the skin.
Unlike food and water, facial masks and other skincare products cleanse the skin to keep it free from impurities, exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and embedded oils and dirt, and nourish and protect the skin inside and out. They are effective tools to anti-aging because they come in direct contact with the skin and precisely deliver their nutrients to the skin cells where they are most needed.
