Is it Really Possible to Reduce the Visible Signs of Aging? To slow down the inevitable deterioration of time? We all wish we could!
Avoidance of “oxidative stress”
Skin cells are subject to continuous regeneration, with an average renewal cycle extending from 28 days to almost 60 days over time. The longer the cycle, the paler the skin tone, the drier and thinner the skin texture becomes. Wrinkles appear and there is a loss of elasticity.
Like all other organs of the body, skin cells must be resistant to oxidative damage caused by free radicals. The following are the predominant external factors that cause cell damage:
Overexposure to the sun (ultraviolet rays)
Lifelong personal skin care habits
Bad sleeping habits
Temperature fluctuations (heat, cold, wind) and air pollution.
Imbalanced eating habits with insufficient nutrients and fiber.
Inadequate physical activity and cellular oxygen supply
Antioxidants on the menu
Antioxidants protect our cells from free radical damage. They are the “color” of our food: fruit, vegetables and spices. Bring color to all of your meals.
In concentrated form, some dietary supplements offer a powerful antioxidant and thus useful anti-aging support: Astaxanthin (UV radiation eye and skin protection and notable for sun allergies), blueberry extract, grape seed extract, resveratrol, curcumin, pycnogenol, etc. …
To stay well hydrated, our skin needs a thin layer of fat on its surface that prevents moisture from evaporating while protecting it.
If you suffer from dry skin, get into the habit of applying a moisturizer all over your body. For the face, choose a richer and more specialized product that is usually lighter than a body cream. However, make sure that the creams you choose are free of any toxic substances like BHA, BHT, tar-based dyes, phthalates, formaldehyde-based additives, parabens, perfumes, PEGs, silicones, siloxanes, etc., etc., and contact us for more information to the beauticians in our branches.
Nourish the skin from within
It is impossible to stop the cellular aging process, but it is possible to limit its visible effects.
PREVENTION is synonymous with a healthy lifestyle: sun protection, non-smokers, regular exercise to increase blood circulation (essential for cell regeneration) keeps the skin clean and well hydrated, eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day, reduce coffee consumption, alcohol, soft drinks, sweetness and fried foods, drink plenty of water, which promotes the removal of kidney and intestinal toxins.
Essential fatty acids are a must: Omega3, evening primrose, black currant and borage oil.
Good fatty acids are an essential part of maintaining the membranes of our skin cells. Essential fatty acids nourish and protect the skin.
Maintaining firm and hydrated skin: hyaluronic acid, collagen, vitamin C, silicon, vitamin B.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant and promotes collagen synthesis.
Silicon stimulates collagen production and helps the skin maintain its elasticity.
Hyaluronic acid promotes skin moisture and helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
B vitamins are an essential part of cell regeneration.
In summary, maintaining healthy skin requires “colors” on the plate at every meal, a healthy lifestyle, antioxidants and essential fatty acids.
