by Peter ClarkAs you get older you're finding that your skin isn't looking as good as it once did, it's not as healthy as it once was, and your thoughts turn to facial skin care.
That's what happens as you age. Your mother had good reasons to look for solutions and good facial skin care treatments.
Your skin loses health with age. It loses skin proteins as it ages and it loses some of it's important properties.
For instance your skin loses its skin elasticity with age. Elasticity is what holds your skin in place. Its what gives it that smooth youthful look and feel.
If you pull a fold of skin on an older woman and let go it sags slowly back into place. Do that on a child and it snaps back into place.
Loss of skin elasticity means that your skin loses some of its ability to keep itself smooth and strong. So wrinkles form. You get fine lines around your mouth and eyes. Your skin sags. You may notice this on your neck.
As you age your skin loses some of it's collagen and elastin, and for this reason you see collagen and elastin listed on the ingredients of some bottles of facial skin care products.
So one of the most important factors in a good facial skin care treatment is to replace lost collagen and elastin.
Lets look at how you do that:
1. Keeping your skin healthier.
There are lifestyle factors that contribute to poor skin health. Excessive sun exposure, called "photoaging", is one of them.
The sun strips out natural oils from your skin. And it burns your skin. Sunburn is one of the worst things you can possibly do for your skin. You must avoid sunburn and excessive sun exposure. Dont become a hermit, but dont go out in the sun for long periods in the middle of the day in summer.
Smoking affects your blood circulation and is terrible for your skin. Don't smoke if you want great looking skin.
And there's a whole range of other lifestyle factors that are important to keeping you healthy generally, because they also keep your skin healthy. Eat a healthy diet and this benefits your skin as well as your body generally.
And believe it or not exercise even helps your skin by improving your blood circulation.
2. Replace that collagen and elastin lost with age.
This is the most important goal for a good facial skin care system, but sadly most facial skin care systems don't do this at all.
Did you notice last time you bought a bottle of skin care product that there were collagen and elastin listed on the label? Well if there's collagen and elastin in the bottles they have to get into your skin, right?
It's been common science for some time that collagen and elastin have molecules that are too big to enter the skin, so if you put them on top of the skin that's where they stay.
So why is there collagen and elastin in all those bottles of facial skin care products on the shelves? Because the skin care and anti aging companies arent silly, they know if consumers see collagen and elastin listed on the label theyll buy the products. Its there to sell the products, not help your skin.
So what is the solution? If you cant replace lost collagen and elastin by putting them in the bottle how do you do it, given that replacing collagen and elastin that are lost with age is so important?
You produce a facial skin care line that stimulates the skin to produce more of it's own collagen and elastin.
Is this possible? Yes it is. You see theres a company that makes a fine facial skin care treatment range that does exactly that. It makes high quality natural skin care products that stimulate the skin to start producing more collagen and elastin.
How? By using new patented ingredient that actually helps the skin to produce more of its own proteins. Theres no collagen or elastin in the bottles.
And visible results within a month are achieved according to the studies.
