Problems with skin aging: what to deal with

Cosmetologists are sure that skin aging begins at the age of 25 years. The initial signs are not very noticeable. Gradually, the epidermis loses its elasticity, loses its ability to retain moisture; after a full night’s sleep, the skin has no time to recover. Every year more and more strong cosmetics are required, there is a need for salon procedures. At the age of 40, the problem becomes apparent, it becomes increasingly difficult to hide defects with makeup. The main signs of aging include:

  • change in epidermal density;
  • added drying of the skin, visible skin;
  • enlarged pores and uneven relief;
  • uneven pigmentation;
  • earthy complexion;
  • swelling, especially visible under the eyes;
  • the "floating" oval of the face;
  • small wrinkles, prone to deepening.

With age, skin type can change. Women who have normal skin in their youth begin to complain of excessive dryness. Oily epidermis suffers from dehydration and irritation, reacts to changes in weather and new cosmetics.

Rapid deterioration of skin appearance is not always associated with age. The image is negatively affected by:

  • malnutrition;
  • smoking and alcohol;
  • lack of fresh air;
  • insufficient sleep;
  • very aggressive cleaning;
  • inappropriate cosmetics;
  • hormonal disruptions.

Before starting anti-aging procedures at home, you need to eliminate as many negative factors as possible. It is important to increase the amount of fluids you drink and monitor food. The menu includes as many fresh vegetables and fruits, fermented dairy products, natural fiber. It is advisable to quit smoking completely and greatly reduce the amount of alcohol, get enough sleep and walk more.

Home rejuvenation: necessary procedures

An experienced cosmetologist can develop an individual anti-aging program and choose the right cosmetics. Your daily routine should include:

  1. Gentle cleansing with very gentle preparations enriched with natural oils, marine collagen, silk proteins and vitamins. It is better to replace tap water with boiled, filtered or spring water.
  2. Multi-stage wetting. The only universal cream will not be able to maintain hydro-lipid balance at an optimal level. It is recommended to first moisturize the face with a lotion enriched with plant extracts and hyaluronic acid, then apply a liquid emulsion and nourishing cream. High quality cosmetics are absorbed quickly without causing discomfort. Multi-stage application allows you to retain moisture in the skin, prevents peeling and drying.
  3. Balanced diet. It is recommended to first apply the serum on the face and only then apply the cream to the skin. Deep restoration products are used in courses of 20-30 days. For example, after completing a course of retinol, you can take a short break and start using products with hyaluronic acid or vitamin C.

Occasionally, the skin needs more active treatments. Deep cleansing is essential to improve the skin. Instead of aggressive cleaning, delicate tires are used. Creamy products are applied to the face, wait a few minutes and roll the mass with your fingers. At the same time, keratinized scales, oily plugs, cosmetic residues and other impurities are removed from the skin surface. After such a procedure, the face glows, fine wrinkles soften, a rash appears. You can repeat the cleaning 1-2 times a week.

Aggressive gels are not used for make-up removal, but saturated hydrophilic oils that deeply cleanse the skin and do not dry it too much.

Mature skin is well affected by superficial peeling. At home, you can use formulations with the addition of fruit acids. They gently exfoliate dead cells, refreshing the face and improving nutrient penetration. For very dry and thin skin, softer glycol peels are suitable. It is recommended to use preparations from professional series, they are more effective. The exact course depends on the condition of the person. Acid peels should not be used in spring and summer, active sunlight contributes to the appearance of age spots.

Lavender or jasmine oil fights hyperpigmentation and deeply nourishes dry skin. Rose has a slight lifting effect and is suitable for self-massage. Juniper narrows enlarged pores and evens out relief, neroli softens fine wrinkles, relaxes and accelerates cell regeneration.
