Anti Aging Skincare Facts
and Understanding Mature Skin

Do You Find This Confusing?
Do you know the difference between Hyaluronic Acid and Glycolics? Or Retinol and Ceramids? No? Then before you rush out and spend a fortune on your next miracle lets take a look at some anti aging skincare facts.. and find out what makes mature skin look like it does.
I want to tell you briefly about Skin structure at 20 years old and the changes that take place by 60.What is missing and…how we can put it back
THE EPIDERMIS is the uppermost layer and is thinnest on the eyelids.
Cells are produced at the base of the layer and move upwards to the
outer layer (skin surface) in 15 to 30 days. The cells are plump and
hold lots of moisture.
- THE DERMIS below is thicker than the
epidermis and this is where we find Collagen and Elastin. Collagen
supports and plumps the skin making it strong, resilient and able to
stretch. Elastin is responsible for elasticity and prevents sagging.
- THE SUBCUTANEOUS layer is mostly fat and vitally important for keeping youthful facial contours.
The Unwelcome Changes
tell us that the aging process begins in our late 20s. No wonder then,
that by 50 – 60 lots of unwelcome changes have taken place…
production of cells in the Epidermis slows down and the cells are not
replaced as quickly. The dead cells or tired cells on the surface look
very dull. The ability of the cells to hold moisture is lessened and so
the skin becomes ever thinner and more dry.
- In the
Dermis, production of Collagen and Elastin has slowed down resulting in
less support, less bulk and less resilience. Skin looks flatter and
wrinkles form. Particularly around the eyes and mouth, skin begins to
sag due to lack of elasticity.
- Subcutaneous fat is lost causing a more fragile, sagging appearance
The Anti Aging Skincare facts
Mature skin needs moisture to encourage that dewy look. The cells need to be nudged into reproducing and replacing the surface layer more quickly to counteract dullness. To regain plumpness and elasticity we need to promote the building of collagen. No better time to do that than while you sleep.
