Is Dry Skin Making You Look Older?

A lot of factors can combine to create dry, damaged skin. Even in a young woman, climate and exposure can play a big part in a face that looks dry and lined. Many women who lead active lifestyles, skiing, cycling or hiking in an arid climate look many years older than they actually are. This is especially true in the Southeastern states.

Other factors can contribute to dry skin and they include hereditary factors – if your mother and dad both tend to have dry complexions you probably will too. Smoking, sun exposure and indoor dry-air heating can all contribute and make your skin drier than it should be.

Why does that even matter? The simple fact is this: moisture is what keeps your skin cells plump and smooth. When the skin cells lose moisture, the skin sags and wrinkles and fine lines form. Lips become crevassed and lines form from the nose down to the mouth. This can make any woman look older no matter what her age. It is not unusual for women to turn to injectible fillers, fats and collagens just to plump skin back up. Many times these measures are more drastic than are needed. The skin just needs to be moisturized more effectively.

What can we do to keep our skin hydrated? The first thing to do is to drink plenty of water. If your body is not well hydrated your skin is not either. Next, always wear a good sunblock when dealing with the environment. The UV rays of the sun are extremely damaging and wind and salt air can add another layer of damage. Protecting your face from those elements is key to looking beautiful with an active lifestyle.

Finally, use a good moisturizer with hyaluronic acid to hold a maximum amount of moisture into your skin. Choose a cleanser that is not harsh and won’t strip away the natural oils, use a night repair cream to really hydrate and nourish the skin allowing it to heal and replenish the natural moisture. You will be surprised at the difference and your skin will age more slowly with a higher level of care. Protect it and it will last you a lifetime of beautiful smiles!

Why Is Dry Such A Bad Word?

No matter what skincare site you visit, and ours is no exception, the biggest talk is about how to adequately moisturize your skin. There are various techniques and ingredients that are involved but the end goal is always to put fluid into your skin. Why is that? Why is wet better than dry?

moisturize your face with hyaluronic acidPerhaps our best example of the problems of dry would be a few dry leaves. The cells of the leaf get thinner, more brittle, less elastic and flexible. Next the leaf begins to discolor, and then, as more moisture is lost the leaf wrinkles, withers and is aged. Not the direction you want the delicate skin on your face to go. And it is obvious that those changes take place as we age. Other factors play a part too, smoking and sun-damage are obvious problems for skin; but the biggest factor is aging. We lose fluidity, we lose wetness, moisture, as we get older. That loss is hard on our skin and unkind to our face. Like the leaves we discolor, lose suppleness and smoothness. Suddenly, we have wrinkles.

So do we really want our face to be wet? In a word, yes. But not on the outside, on the inside. When you rub a cream into your face you will notice your skin cells soak it up and in a minute your skin feels smoother and there is no cream on the surface. That is because dry skin cells soak up revitalizing moisture and the cells become more flexible and soft. If the facial cream has beneficial ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid or Squalane, the cells soak those ingredients in and collagen production is stimulated and the cell begins to lose its aged appearance. It is a natural phenomena and one that happens continuously when we are young. But as we age, our skin needs assistance to stay hydrated. Sometimes the best thing to do is use an overnight moisturizing cream to allow the skins natural healing functions to work while we sleep. A product like Nocturne can be the most helpful for dry skin. Try Nocturne night cream and see how beneficial a little moisture can be!

 

Winner By A Neck!

Have you spent a lot of time looking in the mirror and worrying about lines around your eyes, or the lines that come down from your nose to your mouth? How about those frown lines between your eyebrows? Many women smooth on moisturizer, get shots of botox, spread on makeup and then go out the door without giving a thought to the area that starts right below the chin and continues down to the top of your bust line.

And yet, the tell-tale neck area can really ruin the impression a woman makes if it is neglected while she is focused on her face. You see, the neck is initially taut and smooth and drops naturally from your chin down to your chest like a lovely, graceful column ala Audrey Hepburn. But the skin on the neck takes particular wear and tear as you raise and lower your head, shake your head from side to side, crane your neck way around to see someone off to the side and then bob your head to the beat of dance music. That skin is always moving and is usually exposed to the sun, and sprayed with hairspray, drenched in shampoo, and spritzed with perfume. Finally, as you get older, sagging skin on your face causes neck skin to slacken and sag too. This causes fine lines, wrinkles, and in extreme cases, especially after a large weight loss, loose skin below the chin.

What is a woman to do? Well, for starters, remember your throat when you are applying sunscreen or general moisturizers. Second, buy a cream formulated specifically for the wrinkles on your neck – Necquelle. Smooth Necquelle in, using gentle upward strokes and allow it to begin to work on the delicate skin of your neck. It will penetrate the upper layer of skin and begin to rejuvenate the collagen levels with a combination of powerful peptides and squalane to moisturize. Finally, an effective anti-wrinkle cream for your neck!

You Know It When You See It

There are so many descriptions of beautiful skin:

  • Glowing
  • Radiant
  • Smooth
  • Soft
  • Silky
  • Wrinkle-free

But the most obvious aspect of beautiful skin is that it is often associated with youth. There are two very good reasons for that. The first is that young skin has not endured the environmental and lifestyle factors that will age it as time goes by: sun damage, damage from smoking, chemicals, stress, illness or other factors.

The other reason is that young skin still has its full compliment of collagen, and hyaluronic acid. The body is still creating peptides to repair skin at a good rate. So we are in a difficult situation as we get older: Our skin has experienced damaging factors that make it age more visibly, and, our skin does not repair itself as quickly as it did when we were young. What can we do about that?

Thanks to advances in anti-aging research we now can do quite a bit. In addition to avoiding environmental factors like sun and smoke, and drinking plenty of water, we can choose skincare products formulated to help the skin rejuvenate the way it did when we were young. Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Peptides and Retinol can be purchased in face creams and serums that penetrate your skin and help to revitalize and nourish the skin so that it has the advantages of skin much younger.

What are the results for you? Fine lines and wrinkles begin to fade, sagging necklines and decollete smooth out, and uneven coloration is corrected. The results can be dramatic! But not any skin cream promising the moon can be trusted. Smooth Skin Systems uses medical-grade ingredients in the most effective concentrations available without a doctor’s prescription.  Your skin will thank you and your friends will be green with envy.
