Can Anti- Wrinkle Products Actually Rejuvenate The Skin?

Yes, anti-wrinkle products can rejuvenate the skin and make you look younger, but the secret lies in finding the correct anti-wrinkle skincare products and treatments.

Lotions and potions

Anti-wrinkle skincare products are available in several forms such as gels, masks and firming creams that can assist the skin to appear more youthful. Anti-wrinkle night creams claim to reduce the appearance of appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even out the tone of the skin, stimulate the production of collagen and keep in moisture to sustain the skin’s elasticity. Anti-wrinkle serums should now make up a part of your five step skincare programme that includes the traditional cleanse, tone and moisturise, but now also includes serum and eye cream.

Treatments

New technology and research discovered that a blend of appropriately combined natural ingredients can assist the skin to appear younger, evenly toned, firmer and smoother. Aesthetic treatments have also proved useful in helping to stem the passing of time when it comes to your skin, with Botox and anti wrinkle injections growing in popularity, even amongst younger women. Facial Peels and micro needling have all been shown to have positive results and it is now easier to find an Aesthetician in London than ever, with many practitioners now happy to give you your treatment in the comfort of your own home, perfect for those who are short on time, or feel uncomfortable in salons.

Ingredients to look for

Individuals should find an anti-wrinkle product that contains an ingredient such as CoEnzyme-Q10, which assists in the reviving of skin cells. CoEnzyme-Q10 is an anti-oxidant that prevents the damage caused by free radicals. The body manufactures levels of the ingredient, but unfortunately the production thereof slows down as we grow older.

Peptides are the latest ingredient on the market that has been proven to provide positive results when combined in an anti-wrinkle skincare product. If you don’t know what these are, peptides are amino acids that make up certain proteins in our body. Research peptides are used in a lot of things including skincare. Certain peptides work in much the same way as Botox, only without the use of painful needles. Some peptides are known for its ability to stimulate the production of collagen. Penta-peptides work to relax the muscles and therefore reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Peptides are combined in anti-wrinkle skincare products to be topically applied to the skin. If you are uncertain of which products contain peptides, it is advised that the labels of anti-wrinkle skincare products are carefully studied.

Sodium Hyaluronate is naturally present within the skin to maintain its moisture balance and keep it sufficiently hydrated. Due to this quality, it is an important ingredient to look for in a quality anti-wrinkle skincare product. A well-hydrated skin is one that is less likely to become wrinkled. The process of ageing decreases the levels of sodium hyaluronate within the body and this is why individuals have to replenish the ingredient by using a recognised anti-wrinkle product.

Ageless Derma

Ageless Derma manufactured an excellent anti-wrinkle cream that incorporates all of the mentioned ingredients.  Its peptide and Stem Cell Anti-Wrinkle Cream is a day- and night cream that hosts four wrinkle-combating peptides, CoEnzyme-Q10 as well as sodium hyaluronate. Individuals who truly want to achieve youthful skin, can visit the website of Ageless Derma to arm themselves with knowledge as to which products have been scientifically tested to provide positive results. All incorporated ingredients are derived from nature and backed by years of science. The Ageless Derma anti-wrinkle firming cream is also packaged in a container designed to keep unnecessary air out in order to guarantee the freshness and effectiveness of this product.

 

Most Effective Natural Remedies to Remove Blemishes

Skincare is one of the most lucrative markets in beauty, it is easy to see this when you view just how many products there are available. Just check out the number of potions, creams, and medications that promise a miracle cure for acne, or the number of cleansers, or moisturisers there are. While these options are effective in some cases, utilising a natural treatment is less harsh on skin tone and texture. When it comes to safely treating spots and blemishes, you may be better to consider an effective, natural remedy, rather than a shop bought treatment.

These days, when we look towards being more Eco conscious when it comes to our beauty products, we are being ever more encouraged to create our own lotions and potions. It certainly costs a lot less than the expensively packaged products that you can buy on the High Street and in the department stores, and as we can now buy reusable plastic containers in bulk, we can avoid have endless ’empties’ to throw away at the end of each month. Add in that we can create our own labels, and opt for pretty bottles with plastic screw caps, then we could also create cheap and yet personal Christmas presents for friends and family.

One thing that I do suggest is using more natural forms of cosmetics that are gentler on your skin. Mineral make up is often totally free from parabans and is also usually vegan friendly which can help your skin avoid flare ups and blemishes, whilst still giving a really glossy, glamorous look.

Here are a few products that you probably have at home that could help with banishing skin blemishes.

Apple Cider Vinegar

A common item in many homes, apple cider vinegar offers many health benefits. Due to its acidic properties, vinegar is naturally antibacterial and antiviral. Fortunately, vinegar is also a safe, gentle way to remove blemishes.

Combine 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar in a bottle with 1/2 cup of warm water. Shake to mix and then add to a clean, soft cloth. Use the damp cloth to wipe the skin where blemishes are present.

Honey

Most people have honey in their home, as well. Not only is it delicious, but it also effectively kills bacteria. For blemished skin, wash the face with warm water and apply a thin coat of honey to the skin. Allow the honey to sit for 10 minutes before washing off with warm water. Pat the face dry.

After a few uses, the honey will decrease the bacteria that is causing the acne. In addition, it will soothe and heal the redness on the skin after weeks of ongoing use.

Olive Oil

Olive Oil can make a brilliant cleanser for dry skin and you don’t even have to add anything to it. Simply rub it into your skin, and cover with a warm cloth to give it time to sink in, and then wipe off the excess. It will help to cleanse and clean your skin and will make your dry skin feel softer.

Using these effective remedies to remove blemishes, skin will be clean, healthy, and attractive.

Advice For My Younger Self

If you could go back in time and speak to your younger self, what advice would you give them? Would it be something specific (like here are the lottery numbers for week beginning….) or would it be something that you long to change if you only had the chance?

My younger self.

Here is the advice I would give to my 20 year old self.

1. Love your skin, look after it, and don’t be afraid to get a little help if you need it.

When I was young, I didn’t really understand the need to look after my skin, despite my mom’s best advice. I would drop into bed in the early hours of the morning, face still full of make-up, and would wake up the next morning resembling a member of Kiss who had spent an hour crying. I often suffered from skin dryness, especially around the extremities of my face, and generally suffered with hydration and suppleness, and I wouldn’t have dreamed of doing anything about it.

I would certainly have never dreamt of having any sort of cosmetic or medical treatment, but this is sometimes exactly what is needed to get your skin back to tip top condition. Clinics like 23 MD offer all sorts of treatments based on the latest scientific research. This includes treatments to boost ageing skin, treat acne scars, help with pigmentation spots generally rejuvenate skin.

You do need to love the skin you’re in, but admitting it sometimes needs help is half the battle.

2. Wear those Little black dresses.

Nobody actually tells you that your figure at 20 is the best it will ever be. I was a really curvy size 10-12 at 20, and yet dressed so grungy, in baggy sweatshirts, leggings and Doc Marten boots – looking back now, it was such a waste. I should’ve been wearing something slinky and stylish – the sort of thing I would kill to wear now, when good living and having a baby means I will never be a size 10 again.

3. Go to a festival

I went to lots of music concerts when I was younger (still do), but never went to an actual festival – couldn’t really afford it as a very poor student. Now I look at Glastonbury and all I see is the mud, and bands I’ve never heard of. I really wish I’d have gone when I was young enough to overlook the mud, dirt and weather.

There would be other, more profound advice too. I wish I could have given my nan and grandad one more cuddle – you really do feel that people will be around forever when you are young, and of course this is sadly not the case. But in general, I think I made lots of the right choices, and certainly wouldn’t change my husband or my boy for all the money and dreams in the world.
