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.


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.


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.


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?

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.

Beauty and the Beach

Beauty and the Beach

The lithe body dream we all aspire to, some with more success than others! But by following this program, anyone can tan evenly and above all safely.

In preparation

Before you spread your towel on the sand and lie down to bask in the glorious sunshine, take a long, hard look at your body. See anything that shouldn’t be there such as patches of dry skin, or cellulite? During winter it’s easy to turn a blind eye to these problems but in summer, if you’re striving for a smooth, even, healthy looking tan, something will have to be done about such skin problems.

Cellulite, most often found on the hips, thighs and buttocks, can be discouraged by massaging affected areas daily with a loofah (A rough bath sponge, made from the dried inner part of a tropical fruit) during a bath. Follow this up with an anti cellulite oil massaged into skin and get some regular exercise; walking, swimming or cycling are good choices. The body shop chain has a selection of excellent natural loofahs and anti-cellulite oil. A loofah mitt, used with a good exfoliate, will also take care of day, flaky skin and removes the rough edges from elbows and feet.

If you don’t polish up these rough edges before you stretch out in the sun, you’ll end up with a patchy tan – and that is not what you’re after.

Tan accelerators

In the past year or so there have been many pre-tan accelerators released on the market. These accelerators should be applied to the body three to four days prior to exposure, although many companies suggest three weeks before exposure for an optimum tan. They are said to speed up the melanin production of the skin, therefore giving more protection in the first few days of tanning. But they are definitely not sunscreens and should not be used as such. Always apply a sunscreen as well before going out in the sun. Several pre-tan accelerators you might try.

Tan smart

Gone are the days of lathering on lots of oil and baking your body in the sun. To protect your skin from premature aging, wrinkles and skin cancer, it is very important to take extreme care while exposing your whole body to the sun.

* Sunscreens won’t stop you getting a tan, but they will slow down the rate at which you tan and help filter harmful rays.

* A sunscreen will not protect you all day. If you normally burn after 10 minutes in the sun and you use a Sun Protection Factor of 15, you can be guaranteed only 150 minutes of protection before you begin to burn. Re-applying your sunscreen will not give you any more protection for 72 hours after this exposure.

* Your sunscreen can fall by up to 50 percent after swimming, so always re-apply your sunscreen when you get out of the water.

* UVB and UVA rays can penetrate cloud and still burn your skin.

* UVB rays are the strongest burning rays, so go out in the sun before 10am and after 2pm, if you don’t want to fry.

* Even if you are under an umbrella or have a hat on you will get the reflection of UVB rays from the sand and the water, so make sure you wear a sunscreen.

The right sunscreen

All sunscreen are categorized as high, maximum and moderate.

* Moderate is the SPF between 4-8 for people who burn or tan moderately.

* High includes SPF between 8-15 for anyone who burns easily and tans slightly.

* Maximum is the SPF of 15 + for anyone who burns but never tans.

* Board spectrum sun lotions screen all the UVA and UVB rays.

Protecting your children

* By allowing your children to go out in the sun without any protection you are increasing the risk of them getting a melanoma skin cancer, later in life or of aging prematurely.

* Make sure your children wear a sunscreen, T-shirt and a hat whenever they are out in the sun and don’t allow them to be exposed for too long. There are many good sunscreens for children; you may choice any one of them.

Sensitive spots

One of the least lovely aspects of the sun is its magical ability to conjure cracks and blisters where there were once smooth, clear lips. It can also create lines around eyes and mouth, which tend to turn into deep crevices before too long. Use a total sun block or an SPC 15 + on your face and neck areas at all times if you don’t want to pay the high price of neglect. Keep lips smooth and crack free with special lip sunscreens.

Fake tans

* If you have read this far and finally decided the sun is just not for you, why not try a fake tan? Today there are some excellent ones on the market which won’t make you look like a carrot gone wrong.

* Before you do anything, you still have to prepare your skin, whether you are going out in the sun or not. Start by exfoliating all over with a loofah mitt and an exfoliate cream. Avoid heavy scrubs which can often be much too abrasive and irritating. Once you think your skin is silky smooth all over, you are ready to apply you tan. Here are some tips.

* Many fake tans are in cream or lotion form and don’t show their true colors until hours after application. Test some first on a patch of skin on your hand, dry and leave until color forms.

* Now you know what to expect, apply to the body in smooth, easy motions with either your fingers or a sea sponge, for an even, all-over finish. Allow the lotion or cream to dry completely before putting on clothes or hopping into bed. This will ensure it doesn’t rub off on clothes or become a streaky mess.

* Always wash your hands well under hot water, with a scrubbing brush and soap, paying special attention to the skin between fingers.

* If you decide you want to go darker still, apply one or two extra coats, allowing each one to dry between applications.

*Take special care of hands and feet, so they don’t look streaky or blotchy, and also keens and the backs of knees. Get someone to do your back for you.

* If you just want to give your face some color, try one of the many tinted foundation moisturizers, available in market.

* Take the best tints for legs or for filling in strap marks and so on. It is like a colored water lotion, which tints the skin immediately on application and easily hides white strap marks or colors legs instantly. The color builds up after several applications. Always leave to dry between applications, and use a natural sea sponge, not fingers, for a smooth finish.
