Best Anti-Aging Skin Care Advice

Aging is unavoidable. However, looking your age is preventable. As we age, our skin changes. The elastic tissue in the skin weakens and the blood vessel walls, as well as the epidermis, thin. As a result, you are left with loose, transparent and fragile skin. A variety of factors, such as your lifestyle, diet, heredity, and other personal habits, can further accelerate the aging process. For example, a bad habit like smoking can produce free radicals. Free radicals damage healthy cells causing premature fine lines and wrinkles. Despite the dismal realities of aging, there are things you can do to delay signs of aging. The consensus among dermatologists is completely resolute when it comes to anti-aging skin care necessities. Retinol and sunscreen are a must!…

Clearing up Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a common, by and large harmless but aesthetically displeasing, condition in which patches of skin darken in color.

Several people seek treatment for hyperpigmentation, or skin discoloration, not knowing exactly what it is, what caused it or how to treat it.

Minimizing Large Pores

Every hair on your body stems from a pore. The average adult has more or less 5 million hairs on his/her body. If you’re feeling insecure about your visibly large pores, take comfort in the fact that at least 4.9 million of your pores are minuscule and unnoticeable. Nevertheless, the pores that we do notice in the mirror are the ones that we relentlessly worry and think about. But why are some pores smaller than others? Large pores are a sign of excessive oil production. The skin’s sebaceous glands are connected to hair follicles. The sebaceous glands secrete sebum, which is an oily substance that lubricates and waterproofs the skin. Excessive sebum production will widen the walls of the pore lining, creating larger and more visible…

Why Peptides Should Be Your Go-To Ingredient

Whenever we buy beauty products we always scan the ingredients section to see what beneficial stuff the products contain. But let’s be honest, some ingredients sound like tongue twisters or impossible to pronounce. If you are keen on finding the best products out there and a skin care ingredient that will target fine lines and wrinkles, then “peptides” are your go-to ingredient. Peptides are molecular links of amino acid, which are the building blocks of protein in the skin. So when peptides are applied topically it will help your skin produce the anti-wrinkle protein known as collagen. Collagen makes up about 75 % of our skin. Collagen is what gives your skin its smoothness, thickness, and suppleness. In other words, it gives your skin its youthful look. Over…
