Four Natural Treatments to Reverse the Signs of Aging
by Amanda Beisel
Age is not the determining factor for the health and look of our skin
Many people experience the signs of skin again as coming on quite suddenly but the process actually begins in our twenties as our skin’s ability to hold on to water and oxygen decline. Very gradually, our skin begins to lose its radiant glow. In our late twenties and early thirties, our skin starts to produce less collagen, which leads to the formation of fine lines. Some of these lines are due to our dehydrated skin, and others are due to enlarged pores. At this age, it’s important to start a skin care program to support skin health and reduce the acceleration and signs of aging.
Your twenties and early thirties are primarily a time of preventive skincare and what you do during these years can positively or negatively affect the health of your skin and the rate at which it ages.
In our forties, skincare is preventive and corrective; this is a time when we notice more dehydration and accentuated appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots. There are effective anti-aging treatments and products that can be used to address existing signs of aging as well as prevent further deterioration.
In our fifties, fine lines and wrinkles can become more prominent and can develop into folds. This is a time when estrogen is decreasing, resulting in reduced elasticity and plumpness of the skin. Your skin tone can become more uneven and jowls can begin to develop.
Luckily, age is not the only determining factor in the appearance of our skin. Lifestyle, nutrition, stress, skin care, sun protection and genetics are key factors that play a role in the speed at which our skin will age. Look for a good quality physical sunscreen that uses zinc oxide and or titanium dioxide and avoid chemical sunscreens. The sooner we start taking care of our skin the better the results. Starting early is also a good financial investment because you’ll be spending less on invasive procedures down the road. Below are the top five ways to keep your skin looking tight, bright and healthy. Your skin health program should consist of daily skin products and monthly or bi-monthly skin boosting treatments, such as the powerful options below.
This advanced light energy system delivers infrared heat to the deeper layers of the skin where the collagen resides. Once the heat is delivered to the dermal layer it contracts existing collagen for a tightening effect, while also stimulating the formation of fibroblasts that will create more collagen. We highly recommend beginning these treatments in your thirties when collagen is gradually declining, because you will obtain maximum results and stop aging in its tracks. Having said that, you can still get great results from Skin Tyte in your forties, fifties, sixties and beyond.
Vitamin A Infusion Peel
The Vitamin A Infusion Peel is a one-of-a-kind peel that repairs and remodels your skin. It works at a deeper layer where the collagen and elastin reside, making it a powerful anti-aging treatment, but it’s also great for acne, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation. This peel boosts the cell turnover rate, resulting in a healthier, more youthful complexion. To support and maintain collagen formation and the results of this peel you want to be using a high grade Vitamin A Serum at home every night.
This powerful non-invasive, non-injection skin rejuvenation treatment uses microscopic needles to target a diverse range of skin concerns, such as acne scars, lines, and wrinkles. It is derived from ancient acupuncture techniques and has minimal risk and shows long-term results in repairing and rejuvenating the skin. The tiny needles glide along the skin, leaving tiny punctures in the epidermis and dermis that encourage the skin’s own natural healing response. It is a non-surgical procedure that will help rejuvenate and revitalize your whole body, improving blood and energy circulation, nourishing the skin and increasing collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging and dull skin.
A medi-facial is a results-driven treatment that uses concentrated clinical grade, natural ingredients to replenish and repair the skin. These ingredients include enzymes, acids, and vitamins, plus potent antioxidants. Medi-facials are great for all skin types and skin conditions because they are custom blended for you at the time of treatment. The infusion of nutrients, acids, and enzymes results in a deep cleaning and nutrient-rich feeding of the skin, and finally a smooth polishing, leaving skin looking refreshed, radiant and healthy.
