They say age is just a number but try telling that to your skin! While you may not be experiencing the same skin problems that you had in your younger years such as breakouts, blackheads, and pimples, the advancing years bring their own issues.
Crow’s feet around the eyes, laughter lines, wrinkles on the forehead, and sagging skin are just some of the things we have to contend with. And, while there’s no way to turn back the clock, there are effective ways of slowing the signs of aging.
Use a Hydrating Serum
As we age, levels of hydration in our skin become depleted leaving it dry, rough, and flaky. Our skin’s natural levels of Hyaluronic Acid decline, causing the skin to lose its plump appearance and youthful glow. Fortunately, this common aging problem can be addressed by rehydrating the skin with a serum that contains Hyaluronic Acid such as the Solvaderm product ACE-Ferulic.
This best-selling serum is rich in HA and other rich emollients, boosting skin volume, locking in moisture, and keeping the skin fully hydrated, soft, and supple. Adding a serum such as this to your skincare routine is essential in ensuring skin is fully hydrated 24/7.
Cell renewal and collagen production are two vital processes that give our skin its youthful appearance but, as we age, these processes slow down, leaving our skin dull, tired, and dry. When an accumulation of dead skin cells, plus other dirt and built-up debris, causes the skin to lose its radiance, the only way to deal with it is by exfoliation.
However, dermatologists say that it’s absolutely essential to use an exfoliating product that works gently as anything too harsh will leave the skin red, sore, and irritated – in other words, the exact opposite of what you want! Look for exfoliation products that contain natural fruit acids rather than ‘scrubs’ as these will gently eliminate the dead cells while leaving the skin’s natural moisture levels intact. The result will be bright, glowing skin with a more even, clear texture.
Sleep on It
Nighttime is when the skin renews itself so using a specially-formulated cream at this time ensures you’re getting full benefits for the best possible results. It’s important to find a cream that addresses the three most important factors in treating aging skin – collagen production, hydration, and antioxidant protection.
A cream such as Solvaderm’s Suvoderm does all this using a formula that contains Hyaluronic Acid, Coenzyme Q-10, Retinol, and Vitamin E plus a number of other richly nourishing natural oils. Night creams can also strengthen the skin matrix, making it able to withstand all the environmental stressors it encounters on a daily basis.
TLC for the Eyes
When you’re young you can get away with using your regular skin cream around the eyes but, as you age, you’ll definitely need to add an eye cream to your daily routine.
An effective eye cream should have multiple benefits – address fine lines and wrinkles using deeply moisturizing ingredients, improve under-eye circles and bags by ramping up micro-circulation, and provide antioxidants to fight the damaging effects of cell-destroying free radicals. Just a small amount of a targeted eye cream applied twice a day can make a huge difference to the dry and delicate skin in this area.
