Anti-aging Approaches on Skin Care

Cosmetics, cosmecueticals (ways of treating the skin and making it look nicer by applications that act like pharmaceuticals) and other beauty aids of the same ilk may well be effective when it comes to anti-aging skin care. However, they may be quite expensive and do they really get to the root cause of premature ageing and skin disorders such as acne, spots, psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis?

Let me put it like this. You put your car into a garage because it’s not running well. The mechanic carefully beats the bonnet into a nicer shape, paints over it, then re-lacquers the surface and finally gives it a nice waxy sheen. He then tells you your car has been fixed. Indeed you are delighted with the look at it and you drive away from the garage a satisfied customer. …Until you find that the fault still persists.

This of course is an absurd way of dealing with the car problem because the mechanic never got to the underlying root cause: that which is below the bonnet, the engine! This is an analogy that can be likened to the way in which many people are being treated for anti-aging skin care and skin disorders. ‘The route cause of the problem lies beneath the skin!

Taking care of the underlying root causes.

Whether it’s through premature ageing or by disorders, poorly skin can manifest a result of:

1. Poor nutrition 2. Toxicity 3. Stress 4. A lack of exercise

So anti-aging skin care and the prevention of disorders can be very effectively handled by.

Good Nutrition

-Take foods containing plenty of vitamin C. This has the effect of forming good connective tissue, which is capable of preventing wrinkling and is immune system building for fighting infection.

– Get a good supply of omega-3 fats. This is found, for example, in fish oils or flax seed oils. Be very sure to get a good quality supply, such as cod liver oil. Omega-3 helps to keep skin fats normal and retains moisture. This is a good way to prevent inflammation; skin cracking and helps prevent disorders such as acne, spots, psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema.

– Eat a range of fresh fruits and vegetables, preferably organic. Nuts are good for the skin, since they are rich in vitamin E. Remember, vitamins, enzymes and minerals act synergistically and all serve to effectively slow down the ageing process and prevent skin disorders.

-Keep insulin levels reasonable constant. Don’t let them fluctuate too much by meal skipping or overeating…

-Get around 10-15 minutes of sunshine a day.

Avoid

-Junk food. It causes ageing and body toxicity. Junk food, for example, is capable of giving rise to oily skin: The sebaceous glands produce sebatin during toxicity. They then get clogged up with dead skin and micro-organisms, resulting in pimples and spots. Don’t ever underestimate the potential damage that junk food is capable of.

Toxicity

-Avoid environmental toxins. Use chemical-free lotions.

-Smoking. This causes free radical damage to the surface of the body’s cells, or the DNA or RNA inside. This can lead to ageing or serious illness.

Stress

-Look into ways of managing stress.

-Sleep well

-Avoid tensions, particularly around the facial muscles. Acupuncture is a good form of making the facial muscles relax for reversing the ageing process.

Exercise

-About half an hour a day is recommended.

    I don’t mind much about the difference in price since i care more about the result. I just like to know the properties of these 3 kinds of cream. The reason listed these 3 is because I’m not looking for too much of a make up but a light coverage and also something that’s good for my skin. I’m a teenager really so don’t need the anti-aging stuff, I like how it says it repairs the acne and also a light spf. So whichever one is light, repairs damage , not too oily good blending is the one i want. Because i have a normal asian skin tone which is yellow based but canada is mostly winter so i don’t worry too much about the oiliness but i do have some pimples on my forehead
    please share your experiences , thank you.

    Like a lot of ladies i am approaching my 40’s and have always moisturised my skin, but now i want something that moisturises and takes care of those smaller wrinkles that will start to appear on my face.
