How To Get Rid Wrinkles

The reality is nobody likes getting older. As we age our skin loses its flexibility and becomes stiffer, which translates into wrinkles.

Obviously, there are a multitude of variables that determine the extent to which our skin wrinkles – foremost among those variables being our genes. there’s not much we can do about our genes. Some of us simply age more gracefully.

Regardless of how we age, we all prefer to look younger, which generally makes us feel better about ourselves, as well.

I, for example, have been fortunate enough to look younger than I am. Which I hope was because of my appearance and not my behavior. As a younger person, this often hindered me. Now that I am older my youthful appearance is working in my favor, as I don’t look my age at all.

Clearly, some individuals age more gracefully than others. For everyone else, there is quality anti-aging skin care.

A topical cream can be used to target specific areas of concern. Individuals with a history of smoking tend to have more wrinkles around their mouth and eyes, while a person who has experienced significant sun exposure may wrinkle prematurely.

In both cases a skin care cream may be applied to the specific areas to help smooth out those wrinkles and improve the health of the affected skin.

Using skin care products is a great way to improve the health, look and feel of skin. But there are other things that you can do, and should be doing to improve your skin’s health.

Smoking has a detrimental effect on skin. If you don’t smoke, please don’t start, and if you are already a smoker, the sooner you can quit the better.

Drinking plenty of water is also tremendously beneficial. Remember, the human body is made up of between 50-75% water on average. Skin is the body’s largest organ. There is roughly 3,000 square inches of skin, weighing about 6 pounds covering a 120 pound individual! Water is essential to maintaining the organ! Drinking water not only keeps skin healthy, it helps skin to retain its elasticity which is critical to reducing wrinkles.

Try to avoid extensive exposure to the sun. If you must be out in the sun for an extended period plan to wear a hat, loose-fitting clothing that is designated as blocking ultraviolet sun rays, and wear sunscreen. The sun’s rays have always had the potential to damage skin, but with the elimination of the ozone layer, the sun’s rays are even more intense and dangerous today. Children, especially, are vulnerable to sun damage to their skin.

Minimizing exposure to the sun will not only improve the health of your skin, but reduce your risk for skin cancer. A nice bonus!

Obviously, you need vitamin D, so normal exposure to sun light is acceptable. But, you should really try to keep exposure to short doses. And, you could always take vitamin D as a supplement, if you felt you were not getting enough sun exposure – especially during the winter months.

Personally, I try to adhere to a protocol of reduced sun exposure. But, I recognize that my daily activities will likely expose me to the sun. I try to mitigate that by following the suggestions mentioned above. For example, if I know I’m going to be doing a bit of driving, I apply sunscreen to my arms, face and neck.

When reviewing anti-aging skin care products, do your due diligence. Simply buying the most expensive, highly marketed product is not always the best course of action. If fact, some of the more expensive products manufactured by well know companies, are some of the worst products available for your skin.

From a logical standpoint, you should ask yourself: If the manufacturer is spending so much on marketing, how much are they spending on research and development? Also, how much are the paying the celebrity to endorse the product, and how does that endorsement affect the price?

When considering skin care products of any kind, look carefully at the ingredient. If you see ingredients such as parabens, allergens and fragrance – keep looking! remember skin absorbs 60% of what touches it.

How To Increase Your Collagen

Collagen is a type of protein, and works with keratin to provide the skin with strength, smoothness, elasticity and resilience. It is produced by the skin and other parts of the body. When you are young, you have an abundance of collagen in your body, which is why young children have such lovely shiny hair and smooth skin. It is referred to, as the cement which holds everything together. As you age collagen production declines and weakening of the skin occurs, this is when skin wrinkles, and becomes saggy.

The skin is made up of three layers, epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. The second layer of the skin (dermis) is where the protein collagen is found. Collagen molecules are bundled together throughout the dermis.

There are ways to help you increase the collagen in your skin, so you have to know what nutrients your body really needs to do this.

Soy products such as soymik and cheese contain an element known as genistein. The presence of genistein gives soy products collagen production qualities, as well as helping to block enzymes that tend to break down and age the skin. Just about any soy product contains enough genistein to be helpful, including soy products that have been developed as substitutes for meat products. I personally cannot eat edamame or any soy product unless it is fermented, like Miso. Two, week-long periods were an issue, after eating tofu every day for two weeks. Other plant foods that have been shown to contain genistein include alfalfa and clover sprouts, barley meal, broccoli, cauliflower, and sunflower, caraway, and clover seeds. Barley, and cauliflower and sunflower are all blood type specific for Blood Type A.

Dark green vegetables are also excellent examples of food containing collagen producing agents. Add dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, collards, and kale. Cabbage (which is great for Blood Type B) and mustard greens and turnip greens are all blood type specific, try to put some in your diet every day. They are packed with an antioxidant called, lutein. You need 10 mg to get results – which equates to about 4oz. of spinach or 2oz. of kale. Recent French research suggests this will boost skin hydration and elasticity, fighting wrinkles. Rich in Vitamin C, regular consumption of kale, spinach,collards, and asparagus help to strengthen the body’s ability to manufacture collagen and to utilize the protein effectively.

Beans help your body produce a vital anti-ageing substance called, hyaluronic acid. Aim for at least two tablespoons of beans each day. Find your best beans on the Holiday Healthy Bean Delights for each of the different blood type recipe drop downs.

Red fruits and vegetables also are excellent sources to up the collagen content of foods in the diet. The presence of lycopene in these types of foods helps to act as antioxidants, which in turn increases collagen production. Try adding red peppers,and beets- great for Blood Type B, and fresh or stewed tomatoes- great for Blood Type O,. For others, watermelon is a great source of lycopene. Also include sweet potatoes, (good for everyone except Blood Type A) carrots and more. Research from Dr. Ronald Watson at the University of Arizona has found that the antioxidants in red, yellow and orange foods build up under the skin creating extra UV protection. “The effect is so strong that eating six portions a day for about two months will build a natural barrier equivalent to a factor four sunscreen”.

Vitamin C rich fruits and vegetables are natural sources of collagen production. You should try to include citrus fruits like grapefruit, lemons, pineapple and strawberries into your daily diet.

One of the biggest causes of skin ageing is attack by substances called free radicals, that break down healthy skin tissues. Antioxidants helps neutralize these free radicals before they can do any damage.Prunes are the fruit containing the absolute highest level of antioxidants. Blueberries are a close second. Eat five to six prunes, or a small basket of blueberries, daily to get a great health boost. Prunes also help if you have osteopenia, for preventing long bone fracture.

Omega Acids also help to create an ideal environment for collagen production. Fish such as salmon and tuna are excellent sources of omega fatty acids. Nuts such as, pecans, almonds for every body and Brazil nuts for Blood Type B and AB contain healthy amounts as well.

Flaxseed, chia seeds, and walnuts (plus cold water fish) are a major sources of the healthy fat omega-3. Skin cells are surrounded by a fatty layer made from this and other fats so, the higher your omega-3 intake the stronger that layer is, and the plumper your skin cells are – which helps disguise lines and wrinkles. Mix it into smoothies or add it to balsamic vinegar and use it as a salad dressing, but try to have a tablespoon each day. On Facebook posts, one guy says flaxseeds are estrogenic. If you are concerned about breast and uterine cancers, staying away from estrogenic compounds is a good idea. Chia seeds are great.

Foods that are rich in sulphur content are also important to collagen production. Among these are green and black olives, (limit or avoid these) fresh cucumbers, and fresh stalks of celery. Working in conjunction with the sulphur, vegetables that are rich in Vitamin A, also aid in keeping collagen levels high. Try adding raw carrots, fresh cantaloupe and baked sweet potatoes (for all except Blood Type A) to the diet for an extra boost.

Turkey contains a vital skin-friendly protein called carnosine that slows down a process in the skin called cross-linking. When this happens, fibers grow into the collagen of the skin making it stiff and inelastic. Inelasticity stops skin from snapping back when you do things like smile, laugh or frown – and this is what causes smile lines or crows feet. Eat turkey two to three times a week.

Chocolate is really is good for your skin. In studies in Germany, it was found that after drinking a cocoa-packed drink, blood flow to the skin was boosted (meaning it gets higher levels of nutrients and moisture). It also seemed to be more protected against UV damage. Only dark chocolate contains enough antioxidants to have effects, though. The Healthy Holiday Bean Delights have dark chocolate cocoa in them.

Manuka Honey is a special honey from New Zealand with unique healing properties. It has been used in skin care for centuries by the Maori people of New Zealand and it’s easy to understand why. When used topically, Active Manuka Honey can restore and rejuvenate your skin. It supports the skin cell renewal process and assists in the formation of stronger collagen protein. As an added benefit, active manuka honey is rich in antioxidants and helps to reduce blemishes.

Rose hips are one of the plants extract that can present a rich source of collagen. They contain a high level of vitamin C, which is good for the production of collagen.

Avocado Oil If you want to know how to naturally produce collagen, you need to use face masks or creams that contain avocado oil. Avocado oil is deeply hydrating and highly compatible with the natural oils in your skin. Avocado oil is high in plant steroids, which help to reduce blemishes and age spots. It also helps to regenerate and rejuvenate skin damaged by free radicals. Avocado oil is important because it is scientifically proven to stimulate collagen production and it increases the proportion of soluble collagen in the dermis of your skin. And don’t forget to include fresh avocados in your favorite salad and soup recipes. I added a great guacamole recipe.

One of the key points to keep in mind is that it is possible to provide everything your body needs to produce collagen by eating a balanced diet. By including some of the foods mentioned here, you will soon begin to see a difference in the quality of your skin tone.

All About Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are additives that help to reduce facial lines and restore the fullness and volume of the skin of a person. The ageing process in human beings is accompanied by the loss of subcutaneous fat which together with the facial muscles working closer to the skin surface makes lines and crow feet more apparent to other people. This is more commonly described as wrinkling. The stretching of the skin can be countered with dermal fillers which can then be used to soften the facial creases and the wrinkles on an individual’s skin. It is are also used to cosmetically improve the appearance of sunken scars as well as the reconstruction of contour deformities in the face. It can also be used to decrease or completely remove the shadow of the lower lids on an individual’s face.

Types of dermal fillers available

Juvederm, Voluma, Volift, and Volbella are all kinds of cosmetic dermal fillers which are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring chemical substance found on an individual’s skin. Hyaluronic acid is extracted to make up the dermal fillers which are then used by people who naturally experience the loss of the hyaluronic acid as they age. It make your skin to appear young with fewer wrinkles.

Juvederm, and Voluma is an FDA approved dermal filler. It was created for use in the cheek area by assisting in correcting age-related volume loss. Voluma smoothes away the wrinkles and folds in the lower areas of the face. The Volbella is used for systematically restoring lip volume while defining the lip contours. Volbella is meant to ensure that the lips maintain a natural look and feel when used. The dermal filler has also been proven to be sustainable. The volift is the newest addition of the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that provide versatility in the treatment options for individuals. It is collectively used for the cheeks, the chin as well as the jawline area to reduce the natural ageing process by restoring the natural-looking contours that were on a person’s face when he or she was younger.

Filler procedure

The procedure for dermal filling includes several steps. Firstly, there is facial assessment and mapping which is used for the analysis of the facial appearance, the skin tone, and determination of the area to be augmented. Next, the area of augmentation identified is cleansed with antibacterial agents and injection of local anesthesia. The third step is the actual injection of the dermal fillers coupled with massaging and close evaluation of the area to determine the need for additional fillers at the site. The last step in the procedure is cleanup and recovery. If the results of the injection are satisfactory, the markings that had appeared because of the injections are cleansed-off and an ice pack is provided for reduction of swelling as well as alleviation of discomfort. The area of injection may be tender for a maximum of forty-eight hours.

Factors Considered when selecting a medical professional for dermal filling

Firstly, it is important to know the expertise and training in aesthetic medicine injectables and surgery. This knowledge is necessary for the actual dermal filling process hence forms a major factor. Another factor that should be considered is the spectrum of services. It is prudent to go for someone who offers the full spectrum of services. Price should not be a significant determining factor. Another consideration is before and after photos.
