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?

Moisturizer For Your Supple Skin

Posted By: admin on April 30, 2011 in Beauty Guide, Beauty Through Health, Skin Care Tips, Tips for Skin Care - Comments: Comments Off on Moisturizer For Your Supple Skin

Moisturizer For Your Supple SkinYour skin is your body’s first line of defense against a world teeming with chemicals, bacteria and fungi. The system is just about flawless, until you allow its moisture balance to be upset. Skin that’s constantly dry or cracked, and opens up easily, is more sensitive to bacterial attack, so be careful for it. The same is true of skin that’s bloated with fluids. But informed use of moisturizers can help prevent such cracks of your body’s defense-and thus head off a lot of potential skin problems.

Skin knowledge

Knowing your skin type gets you off to a good start, because moisturizers work differently on every one-even those with the same skin type. If a moisturizer keeps your skin supple without any negative side effects, you’ve got a winner. A loser, when used repeatedly, can block pores and lead to spots. There’s a way to reduce the chances of this happening, through.

Most of the larger cosmetic companies test their products to make them as not causing acne, as possible, if you routinely have trouble with acne,  you select a moisturizer that states that it’s been tested in 10,000 who reacts to the product with blemishes, but at least the odds are in your favor. Be on the lookout for perfumes and preservatives in moisturizers that might cause you to develop contact dermatitis. It’s a condition that scales and may burn, sting or itch. The best way to prevent this reaction is to have your skin doctor test you to determine which ingredient causes the problem, and then avoid it. Remember to think twice about all the above considerations, once for your face and once for the rest of your body. Your facial may require one moisturizing formula; the rest of your skin, another. The skin on your face is more sensitive then elsewhere and may even be a different skin type.

Take care for your eyes

Be careful what moisturizer you use around your eyes, because skin there is thinner. Anything that causes a reaction on the skin of your face will cause a reaction four times greater around your eyes. It may be fine to use your moisturizer as an eye cream for softening your skin only, with no active ingredient that claims to change the physiology of your skin. But if your daily moisturizer claims to change your skin, consider using a separate eye cream. If you want it to double as an eye cream, use it elsewhere on your face for at least a month. Only if there have been no nasty reactions should you try it around your eyes.

A moisturizer formulated specifically for use around the eyes usually has a light texture that doesn’t spoil the delicate skin in this area. Apply anything in this delicate area with a light hand. Use your ring finger and a patting motion to apply nourishment or makeup around the eyes.

Over hydration

Moisturizing is also tricky where there are skin folds, such as between your toes-places where you perspire more, even without moisturizers these spots are susceptible to being over hydrated-retaining too much fluid-a problem you rarely encounter on the face. Over hydration is frequently compounded by clothing or shoes that don’t allow the sweat to evaporate. If you apply a moisturizer to wet skin, there’s no chance of evaporation from the skin’s surface. All the moisture that’s generated is held there. Athlete’s foot is a good example of a problem that can be made worse by over hydration. When it’s warm and moist between your toes, there’s a warm ‘garden’ environment in which the fungus can flourish. Moisturizers may then provide the nutrients for that fungus to feed upon, especially if the product is old and the preservative in the oil is no longer working. If you have a fungal infection, you want to eliminate these ideal conditions. Keep the skin around your toes clean and dry and don’t use a moisturizer there until the condition has disappeared.

So the general rule is avoided moisturizing in skin-fold areas unless they feel especially dry.

APPLYING IT SMART.

Before applying any moisturizer, ask you, is it fresh? The shelf life of creams and lotion, as for all cosmetics, is a maximum of one to two years. After that, the ingredients no longer have an element that protects them against bacterial and fungal attack. It’s especially important to use fresh products around your eyes. We see a lot of problems with old and decaying products getting into the eye. When you apply a facial moisturizer, gently rub it on to relax underlying muscles, massaging for 10 seconds. The massage won’t help get rid of wrinkles, but if it feels good, it may help ease stress lines a bit.

If your body skin is sensitive to pimples try applying moisturizers in the direction of your hair follicles. Applying against the follicles makes them more likely to set up in the pores and cause problems.  If you have a skin infection, consult your skin doctor before applying any moisturizer. If a moisturizer itches when you put it on, should probably avoid it. If it produces a rash, you’d better see a doctor to make an enquiry what caused it. It may be only one ingredient out of the 10 that are in the product, but that one ingredient may be in many other products that you can avoid.
