Oh the cute babyface! We all love to look at them and wish we had them. But how do we really keep our skin baby-like and age-less? The answer begins with analyzing (very simply!) what are the visible signs of aging?
We can start the list with aging effects of the sun: enlarged pores, broken capillaries and excess pigmentation on the skin. New studies published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology now prove that pollution (specifically particle matter) are the cause of excess pigmentation on the forehead and cheeks. Excess sun and pollution exposure can also cause laxity of the skin as shown in areas of expression: around the eyes, on the forehead and/or from the nose to the mouth, commonly referred to as nasolabial folds.
Next, we can list the aging appearance of the skin by genetics as well as environmental damage which is deeper wrinkles on the cheeks, sagging around the jaw and neck, deep furrows between the brows in addition to fatty deposits and swelling under the eyes and slack upper eyelids.
UGH! What to do? Well, first prevention with protection is the best place to start. Protecting your skin against oxidation with anti-oxidants, such as Vitamin C and E. Also it is vital to guard your skin against inflammation with anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Green Tea and Cherry extracts. And finally, Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Sunscreen!
To correct signs of aging, start with the basics of a good skincare routine-cleanse, tone, moisturize, and exfoliate at least once a week. Adding in a professional treatment to deeply exfoliate the skin offers the best corrective option in addition to the toning and circulation benefits of a good facial massage. Dermaesthetics Beverly Hills offers a lifetime of self-care products to use at home while the professional treatments dispensed only to professionals provides every treatment possible. The key is to keep a DBH professional on your speed dial.
So, how to age-less is simple: protection and correction keeps your face as ageless as a baby’s.
