Everybody wants to have the beautiful and flawless skin. As most of us are aware, being young and flawless is not a piece of cake to do. The truth is that we all go through ageing and some of us have different types of skin. Some even have more stubborn skin than that of others.
To rejuvenate or revitalize simply means to restore, uplift or make youthful looking skin. Some individuals approach experts for facial plastic surgery for an easier and faster way of skin rejuvenation. Everyone would love to rejuvenate their skin, so we provide you with some natural home remedies on how to provide your skin a new, younger life. Also, grasp knowledge on the three pillars of skin care.
Giving your skin a drink of water is essential to maintaining the suppleness and elasticity of your skin. About 8 glasses of water a day should do the trick. Just remember never to use carbonated and sugary drinks as an alternative to any of your 8 glasses.
Give some thought and reflection to the type of makeup you choose at the cosmetic shop. You have to make sure that the label indicates “oil-free” and “unscented.” These types of make-up must never be applied on the skin. Choose a make-up that you will never have to reapply over and over.
Some facial plastic surgery specialists would recommend applying soothing facial masks. You can actually make your own mask from home! With just a couple of white eggs, mixed with 2 tablespoons of unflavoured yogurt, apply them to the skin for a few minutes. After that, rinse with water followed by a warm washcloth and feel that softer, younger skin.
Your skin needs a good skin moisturizer with added vitamin A, C, and E. These vitamins help block the penetration of environmental pollutants. You must be aware and understand that there are three pillars of skin care namely, exfoliate, rejuvenate and moisturize.
- Exfoliation – To exfoliate is one of the ways to improve your skin’s youthfulness by using the human body’s own amazing healing power. There are two primary products for exfoliating and these are microdermabrasion creams and glycolic acid cleansers. You can ask any facial plastic surgery experts where to find these.
Microdermabrasion creams and glycolic acid cleansers both remove the outer layer of dull, dead skin cells in the skin. This process has two-fold benefits: revealing younger and fresher skin and the exfoliation process stimulates the reproduction of skin cells.
Those with dry skin will find microdermabrasion creams helpful. On the other hand, those with oily or combination of oily and not do best with glycolic acid. In fact, glycolic acid is deemed most effective due to its small molecular size, allowing it to penetrate in the skin.
- Rejuvenate – This second pillar means to regenerate the collagen in the skin that has naturally diminished as we age. To be honest, there are no topical creams and magic pills that can replace the skin’s collagen. However, it is a good thing that there is a canny way to accelerate the body’s reproduction of peptides. Peptides are the skin’s most important component. Certain peptides are released when collagen begins to break down. These provides signal that the skin has been harmed and needs new collagen.
- Moisturize – Moisturizing with a high quality product is essential to a skin’s youthful glow. Some find moisturizers to be the last place for “bargain” products. However, you must be assured that you are not investing for fancy packaging and heavy advertising budgets. Remember to read the label thoroughly.
The ingredients will be listed in order of concentration. If you find that the most active ingredient is way down the list, the product only possess a small amount of that component. It is no debate that the most potent skin hydrating ingredient is the Hyaluronic Acid. This wonderful compound holds a thousand times its weight in moisture. It is often recognized for its ability to “reverse” or stop aging and has been defined as the “key to the fountain of youth.”
Working out and doing regular exercise is not only good for the overall health but also for the skin! Select a program such as aerobics because this activates the skin and improves the circulation and blood flow. In addition, body sweat elicits the production of sebum, which is the skin’s own natural moisturizer.
