Did you know your skin begins to lose its elasticity in your thirties?
You don't feel old, but you may begin to see unmistakable signs of aging. Wrinkles will begin to develop around your eyes and mouth and your skin will seem thinner than it used to.
What if there were a way to reverse these signs of aging?
An anti aging Serum can do wonders for your skin. Whether you're trying to fade wrinkles or be preemptive about stopping them before they occur, there's a wrinkle reducing cream for everyone!
What Causes Wrinkles?
Wrinkles are caused by the general aging of the skin. When the collagen fibers begin to wear down, your skin's elasticity decreases, causing it to become wrinkled and saggy. As you age, collagen production decreases and your skin becomes thinner.
Some wrinkles are caused by repeated use of the underlying muscles. This is usually the cause of wrinkles in young people. These wrinkles can occur around your eyes and on your forehead.
Being exposed to UV light speeds up the aging process of your skin cells and can even damage DNA. It also contributes to skin discoloration.
Smoking damages the fibers that give your skin elasticity. It also narrows the blood vessels in your skin, limiting blood supply and making skin sag and wrinkle. Smoking can speed up the development of wrinkles, especially around your mouth.
Which Anti-Wrinkle Cream Is Right for Me?
It helps to know your skin type and any other skin problems you may want to treat. In addition to treating wrinkles, different wrinkle creams help with different skin problems. Wrinkle creams can also help fade dark spots, clear acne, and plump skin.
Everyone can benefit from using a wrinkle reducing cream with sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. Make sure the cream blocks both UVA and UVB rays. If it doesn't, apply a sunscreen before going outside.
The following are ingredients commonly found in anti-aging serums and creams.
Telomerase is the tips of our chromosomes. Each time our cells divide, the telomeres get shorter. This causes our cells to age.
Telomerase-based Anti-Aging Serum can help lengthen the telomeres as soon as they shorten, extending the lives of cells.
There is a large misbelief that Retinoid-based products encourage new cell growth, slow the breakdown of collagen, and thicken skin to stop wrinkles. You will hear people say that retinoids can smooth your skin in 6-8 weeks.
Do not fall for these claims. The problem with retinoids is that it does not break down collagen and does not thicken skin.
Retinoids encourages cell growth, it does not fix the underlying problem down to the cellular level. As the cells divide, the telomere shortens a little more and more. New cell growth would simply duplicate this process! Activating the telomeres are the only thing that can prevent aging.
Peptides are amino acids that aid in the production of collagen. Some types can even keep facial muscles from forming wrinkles, giving skin a look comparable to Botox injections.
Peptides are good for smoothing out fine lines, especially around eyes.
Applying Wrinkle Serums
When using anti-wrinkle products, it's good to have a different routine for daytime and nighttime. Using different products for each routine can help you combat different problems.
Wash your face you want a clean pallet and exfoliate to slough off dead skin cells and encourage the production of new cells. Getting rid of dead cells will also make your skin more radiant.
Add a pea-sized amount (two pumps) of Siorai Anti-aging Serum to your palm. Using your finger tip to apply small amount underneath your eyes. In a gentle outwards and upwards motion, sweep the anti-aging serum across your skin. Be careful not to get it in your eyes. Be particularly gentle around your eyes, as the skin is delicate and easily stretched.
Use the remainder of the anti-aging serum on your face, neck, and Décolleté (lower neck, upper chest)
gently massage it into your skin in a gentle outward and upward motion.
Once you have a thin base layer of serum continue your morning protocol as usual. A UV protection is a good idea. If you can't find one that works for you, apply a face sunscreen wherever you will have exposed skin. This could be your face, neck, and chest.
Wait a few minutes for that to absorb before applying makeup.
Try to cover exposed skin with clothing to shield yourself from the sun's rays. Wearing a hat can further prevent aging on your face. To prevent aging the skin on your arms and hands, wear long sleeves.
Before going to bed, wash your face and pat it dry, but let the skin remain a little damp. Moisturizers can trap the water underneath them, helping it penetrate deeper.
However, if your skin is sensitive, let it dry before applying your serum and nighttime moisturizer.
Apply the anti-aging serum in smooth, outward and upward strokes with the flat part of your fingers.
Given that you have more time in the evening, take your time with the application. The gentle massaging motion stimulates your skin and encourages blood flow to further prevent fine lines and wrinkles, so massaging your skin for a longer period of time is beneficial.
Sleeping on your back can keep your anti-aging products from ending up on your pillow. Constantly sleeping on your side puts repeated pressure on your face and stretches your skin, so try to sleep on your back if you can.
One Step Closer to Younger Looking Skin
Using an anti-aging cream or serum is the first step toward younger looking skin, but it's important to use a sunscreen and stay hydrated.
You can start your anti-aging routine as early as your twenties, but most anti-aging products are geared toward older skin. You can be preemptive in your thirties and start treating wrinkles in your forties.
Having a good anti-aging skin care routine can help reverse aging, but there are other things you can do to turn back the clock! Read this post on life habits that can help you look younger.
