Facial skin aging can be of two types:
- natural (chronological);
In the second case (premature aging), wilting provokes various negative factors, which include:
- lack of vitamins and moisture;
If causes that affect skin condition are eliminated, then its former structure is quickly restored. At a natural aging it is necessary to apply special cosmetic means – time reversing creams.
After 25-27 years, skin self-restoration mechanisms begin to gradually slow down. Approximately from this age, the cells retain moisture more poorly, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases, as well as special proteins responsible for youth – collagen and elastin.
Therefore, cosmetologists recommend starting to use remedy marked “from the first wrinkles” starting from 28-30 years. In this case, you must take into account your individual characteristics: for dry and thin skin, prone to early wilting, you can start using anti-wrinkle cream a little earlier, but if signs of aging are absent and after 30 years – use of such cosmetic creams can be delayed.
When choosing an anti-aging cream, be sure to pay attention to:
- its composition;
- manufacturing technology;
- individual correspondence to the type of your skin.
The new generation of cosmetics is almost close to the status of medical. They contain not only active moisturizing components (hyaluronic acid, lecithin, plant extracts), antioxidants (for example, bioflavonoids), special substances for strengthening the epidermis barrier (squalane, vegetable oils), but also special elements with a sun-protective effect. A quality wrinkle cream should protect skin from ultraviolet radiation – the main culprit for skin premature aging. Therefore, choose a cosmetic product with the mark SPF from 15-30 units.
Apply a cream against wrinkles on clean and dry skin. Anti-aging products are divided into:
Day cream has a lighter structure and is well absorbed. Therefore, after its application, it is enough to wait 5-15 minutes, and carefully remove the excess with a napkin. Night cream from wrinkles has a more dense consistency. Despite the name, it is not recommended to apply for a whole night. It will not allow the skin to fully “breathe”. This remedy is best applied 1-2 hours before bedtime, after which it should be removed with a cosmetic napkin.
