Middle Age Acne? How Can This Be?!

One of the more distressing surprises for a woman is to suddenly have blemishes, blackheads, and pimples begin appearing again two decades after she thought she was through with all that.

Hormone changes throughout life can aggravate the skin and create red spots, lumps, discolorations and more even in a woman’s forties or beyond. What can you do when this happens? First, see your doctor. Your breakout may require antibiotics to manage infection or be the sign of other medical problems. It is important to rule that out.

Next, thorough but gentle cleansing will help prevent bacteria from forming and exacerbating the system. We recommend an AHA gel cleanser because it exfoliates and cleans without scrubbing the skin and irritating sensitive areas. Our Exfoliate Me™ gel cleanser should do the trick for you. Your skin should feel clean but not sore or sensitive.

Next, we suggest the power of Vitamin A in a moisturizing blend that glides onto your skin and penetrates cells to speed healing and promote a smoother, more radiant complexion. Our ReNew Youth product contains the maximum amount of Retinol you can buy without a prescription. Long known for its power to banish pimples and breakouts, Retinol is the active form of Vitamin A and a potent antioxidant. Your skin will appreciate it and you’ll love the improved look and feel.

Don’t feel that you are helpless to prevent or manage breakouts. Your doctor can do a lot to help and there are products right here at Smooth Skin Systems formulated especially for these challenges. You’re not in this fight alone, all of our products are designed to help you achieve the most lustrous and lovely skin you’ve ever had.

Try Exfoliate Me™ or ReNew Youth™ today and discover a world of difference. You’ll be glad you did!


Renewing Youth Visibly

Articles are written every day about how women do not see themselves realistically. We do not perceive ourselves as others perceive us and we tend to be harder on ourselves. We tend to be more negative and more fault finding. What can we do to change that? Some of it is triggered by things we can do nothing about, things that happened in our past or things we saw or experienced when we were growing up.

But sometimes very simple things trigger how we view ourselves especially as we consider aging. The perception of “I look old” or “I look like my mother” is one none of us enjoys. We endure painful injections, and even resort to surgery to make ourselves feel as if we look younger. But what if it was more simple than that? What if we really could just look younger. Don’t be shocked but the truth is that we can. When it comes to the skin on our faces a variety of factors affect aging. Smoking, environmental factors and sun damage can all make our skin age, wrinkle, and droop. But how do they do that? Simply by drying the skin out. That’s really what is happening.

As you age, your skin loses moisture, loses collagen, and cells deplete and collapse. Skin sags and first fine lines and then wrinkles form. Your skin at forty does not have the renewing properties of rebuilding collagen supplies and plumping itself back up that your skin did at twenty. But you can overcome that.

It sounds simplistic to say, “just moisturize” but in many ways that is exactly what we are saying. We would just like to add that moisturizing intelligently is the key. Slapping any old greasy preparation on your face will not slow the visible effects of aging. In fact, if your chosen cold cream contains parabens you are actually potentially aging your skin faster! But if you chose an anti-aging preparation that contains Retinol, the form of Vitamin A that can be applied to skin, you will be moisturizing and, more importantly, stimulating collagen production to reduce damage to skin. That is what your skin wants and needs, to renew the capability it had at youth to renew and repair cells and stimulate the necessary collagen that skin needs to be smooth and supple. So renew yourself with Renew Youth™ and let the anti-aging begin!
