Anti-Ageing Cream

Posted By: admin on June 28, 2011 in Beauty Guide, Beauty Tips, Immortal Beauty, Natural Skin Care Tips, Skin Care Tips, Tips for Skin Care - Comments: Comments Off on Anti-Ageing Cream

Anti-ageing creamCleopatra bathed in sour milk for it. Dorian Gray traded his soul for it. Ladies of this age are using a face cream made from machine oil and sleep carcasses for it. It is a radiant, youthful complexion, something thousands of women believe an ‘anti-ageing’ cream will buy them. But can cosmetic really repair the ravages of time? Or is it, as some skin experts say, just ‘hope in a pot’?

What is anti-aging?

Skin doctors divide skin ‘ageing’ into two categories: natural ageing, which happens after 60 and is irreparable, and ‘photo ageing’, due primarily to damage by UVA radiation from the sun. Un-like UVB rays, which cause redness and soreness and are at their most virulent around mid-day at the height of summer, UVA ray are constant all year round, in any weather. They penetrate further into the skin, damaging cells at a far deeper level. It is this damage that anti-ageing aim to redress.

The anti-aging

The claims made by anti-ageing products fall roughly into five categories. Your cream may boast several of these functions.

Hydration

All anti-ageing creams and moisturizers hydrate the skin-trapping its natural moisture, not replacing moisture it has lost. Various oils do this, preventing skin from drying out as quickly and plumping it up so it appears less lined and irregular. Sophisticated creams are lighter as they use products with a higher moisture retention said to absorb up to 1,000 times its weight in water. And firms combine these with pleasant extras like softening jojoba oil, soothing aloe-Vera and calendula and borage oil, said to improve the epidermis’ elasticity.

Lift

The skin’s dermis contains two types of protein fibers: Elastin, for skin flexibility, and collagen, for resilience. As these fibers weaken with age, the anti-ageing creams try.

Regeneration

A youthful skin depends on the state of the stratum corneum. This normally provides a strong barrier against the elements, but the intercellular ‘cement’ can be come damaged or be defective, allowing cells to slide apart and the skin to lose tone and fail to hold in moisture as effectively.

It’s also argued that insufficient oxygen pumped via the blood through the skin reduces cellular activity and renewal and results in wrinkles, lines and a tired, lackluster complexion. Most creams contain vitamins and proteins that should be supplied by the blood but are often lacking. These are said ‘nourish’ the basal layer of the epidermis, where the new cells form.

Damage limitation

The skin’s ageing process is accelerated by two factors:

Ultraviolet lights or by free radicals, high-energy molecules that attack healthy skin cells and speed up dehydration and wrinkles. So many good anti-ageing creams mop up these high-energy molecules. The main antioxidants used are.

Do they work?

It’s often said that using any old cheap moisturizer is just as ‘anti-ageing’ as of a top-range product. The basis of many claims is liposomes, microscopic capsules which deliver the cream’s ingredients to the skin. These capsules were initially criticized for being too unstable to even make it out of the pot. Makers say the new breeds are now composed of lipids or fats that are very similar to the epidermis’ own and so easily fuse with the skin cells to release their ingredients. Now it’s said even molecules that are too big to penetrate the skin, like collagen and elastin, are being chopped up and grafted into these liposomes

But while experts acknowledge that liposomes do act as carriers through the skin, they say we still do not quite know how or to what degree this happens. A lot of evidence now points to the idea that most chemicals take very tortuous paths round the cells. They travel a very long distance compared to the thickness of the skin. So the variation of absorption of drugs between people can be three to fourfold; in cosmetics the uptake is likely to be far less.

Other experts worry about the content of liposomes. The materials they contain probably don’t any biological effect.

Those cosmetic companies don’t do their homework. They invest heavy money in finding new ingredients and refining technology to make creams as user-friendly and effective as possible. The result is delicious products that refine, soothe and imbue a satisfying glow and sheen to skin.

Perhaps the real issue lies else where, anyway. Why are we so terrified of a few wrinkles in the first place?

Eye Puffiness

Posted By: admin on June 25, 2011 in Beauty Guide, Beauty Tips, Eye Care Tips - Comments: Comments Off on Eye Puffiness

Doctors report that puffiness due to water retention during sleep disappears once you’re up and around. The body has great mechanisms for removing extra fluid. Other types of puffiness can be due to allergic reactions to pollen, makeup, hair and nail products, soap or moisturizer, puffiness from allergies can be treated, by monitoring product use and using antihistamines and other prescription medications under medical super vision.

Eye contour Balm “special” to its eye care line-up, specially formulated for very dry skin. It has a thicker consistency than the firm’s Eye Contour Balm, and it claims to soothe, moisturize and minimize fine lines. Last fall, Biotherm introduced a dual system for the eye area: the Tonicite Firming Eye Cream and Bio-Cils Soothing Eye Makeup Remover. The cream claims to tone up slackened skin while toning down bags, dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles.

The eye makeup remover dissolves eye makeup, but also calms and refreshes the area while gently reinforcing the cream’s benefits. Important function of many of the new products is their ability to soothe. Soothing and relaxing the area can fight environmental conditions that irritate our eyes and make us rub them.

There has been a suggestion, that stress causes the release of a hormone in the pituitary gland that causes dark circles under the eyes. Eliminate stress, get more sleep, and it should improve. Some dark circles are hereditary, but others have a lot to do with stress, tension, fatigue, working too hard. If you work out and take care of yourself, you can rid of some of them.

Get rid of dark circles by lightly massaging the area. It’s more like gentle pressure than a massage; it’s a very gentle process, using the third finger. No stretching at all. By improving blood circulation, you can reduce dark circles. Experts generally support this idea: if you can increase the blood flow in that area, which would help carry the pigment away, it might work. But the problem’s not well understood.

Ayurvedic healing methods from India for the light massage mix three drops of Bindi-blended essential oils-with seven drops of water and presses lightly from the outer corner inward. Doctors also recommend applying a pad that’s soaked in cold whole milk to soothe and moisten the eye area.

As for beauty sleep resting with head elevated on several pillows. Toxic fluids are less apt to accumulate around the eyes, she says, but sleeping with lots of pillows promotes a double chin.

Don't Be Afraid Of Sun Rays

Posted By: admin on June 15, 2011 in Beauty Care At Beach, Beauty Guide, Beauty Tips, Skin Care Tips, Tips for Skin Care - Comments: Comments Off on Don't Be Afraid Of Sun Rays

Don't Be Afraid Of Sun RaysIf you are one of those people who sit cooped up in an office all winter you are perhaps eager for the summer sun to shine again. The salubrious effect of sunshine on your skin can bring many benefits besides a golden tan, pink cheeks, and the relaxed look. Like many another sun lover, most of us wear too many clothes in the summer and keep our faces pale too far into July and August. Your skin benefits most when you take sun baths in gentle doses. A few minutes the first day on each side of the body is sufficient. Increase the time gradually.

Many a summer vacation has been ruined by first-day overexposure. Blistering sunburn sends the sun bather home in a painful nervous state. You can mark it in your little sun bathing book that more than 90 minutes in the sun means that you have a burn. By all means space your exposures and for safety’s sake keep the daily total less one and one-half hours.

If you want a golden glow, use suntan lotion or oil. These applications filter out some of the dangerous burning ultraviolet light rays. Keep your skin soft and pliant by preserving skin oils and replacing those you must lose. In salt water of the surf can wash away protecting skin oils. They need replacing after a day at the beach or lake. After an evening shower it is pleasant to rub down with a soothing lotion.

Ultraviolet light shining on the skin confers a great health benefit. It is capable of manufacturing vitamin D in the skin-the vitamin that is necessary for normal teeth and bones. Vitamin D plays a role in the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus, which are essential elements of bone and tooth development.

Sun increases the number and efficiency of blood vessels in the skin. The Islands where surf-and sun-bathing is done have a soft velvety-textured skin. This is because their skin has more blood circulating in the than the skin of the average city office worker who lives indoors. The sun produces a layer of pigment along the basal cells of the skin-in essence, the tanning process. These cells protect the skin from too much sun. Sunshine in moderate doses is soothing, softening, and beneficial to the skin. Certain skin diseases such as psoriasis acne and infection are cleared by sunlight. If one of them poses a problem for you, do not hesitate to get into a pair of trunks or a swim suit and give your skin the delightful healing touch of the sun.

On the other hand, excessive daily exposure of the skin to sunshine may produce certain cancer, which often is seen on the face, ears, neck, and hands of farmers, formers, forest rangers, construction workers cowboy’s outdoor workers. If you must be out in the sun all day, wear a hat and even gloves for your hands if possible. Spring time sunshine can be enjoyed with the clothes on. Sitting quietly on a park bench with your face upturned to the sun is an excellent way to relax in May and June. The warmth of the sun brings a relaxed tingle and glow to your body after the winter cold and confinement. As soon as the sun is out, do not waste coffee breaks on a drug store stool but take a stroll in the park or sit on a bench and soak up the healing sun. You will find it relaxing, and as soothing to the nerves as a tranquilizer.

Sun therapy has long been used in the treatment of tuberculosis. The tuberculosis sanatorium attendants push for patients out on the porches to lie in the sunshine. This treatment helps tuberculosis of the bone to heal, and is beneficial to lung patients also. Even in midwinter and with the patient’s breath steaming, the beneficial ultraviolet rays of the sun are captured in the sanatoriums by enclosing the patient in an aluminum cubicle and allowing the sun to reflect on his nude body while the wind and cold are kept from him.

Sunshine exposure on the golf course through a sweater or while the person is walking in the park or down a country road is great fun and wonderful for the health. Let us take off our coats and gradually expose as much of our body as possible to the health-giving sun. Teenage surfers and other “sun worshipers” should avoid overexposure the first few days of summer. Do not spoil your vacation with sunburn the first day out.
