After a certain age, women are looking for an anti-aging face firming cream to restore the smoothness and elasticity of the skin.
Thanks to modern innovations, new cosmetics soften the effects of time. But the right product should be chosen, reinforced with the following elements.
Anti-aging active elements - antioxidants:
Take the material form of vitamins A, C and E and trace elements (Zinc, Selenium, Silicon,)
Plants (green tea, grape seed...) And algae.
They help fight free particles, improve skin and repair damage caused by pollution.
Creams based on antioxidants are recommended for thin or thick skin.
Often used to combat acne, it is replaced in creams that fight wrinkles with retinol, a derivative of it but less irritant.
Of its benefits it stimulates cell regeneration, smoothes deep wrinkles and thickens the skin.
It is recommended to be used from the age of 35, for those skin with early wrinkles, or from the age of 20 as a prophylaxis.
Alpha hydroxy acids: these acids are found in citrus, grapes and sugarcane.
It has a exfoliating effect that removes dead cells from the surface of the epidermis and moisturizes the latter and smoothes facial features, refreshing the skin's luster.
Preferably used for thick or sun-damaged skin. But should be avoided if the skin is very sensitive person.
Sunscreens: protects the skin from sunlight. It is composed of anti-free particle elements
We also find them in anti-wrinkle creams (vitamin A, vitamin C, carotene, trace elements...).
Some anti-wrinkle creams may make up for some skin imperfection:
- Lack of hormones caused by menopause; through phytoestrogen found in some anti-wrinkle creams.
- Dry skin, which increases and deepens wrinkles; through the moisturizing elements found in some anti-wrinkle creams.
Choose the cream according to your skin type
Dry skin: dry skin is characterized by the fragility of its surface layer. So the skin tends to thin and irritate easily.
And this type of skin needs an anti-wrinkle cream specifically designed for dry skin
Contains sunscreens similar to those found in sunscreen creams
Also on elements that fight free molecules and the harmful effects of skin oxidation, as a result of exposure to the sun.
Another tip is to avoid exfoliating substances that irritate dry skin.
Oily skin is characterized by oily skin with lots of sebum, which will protect the skin.
Their shape may look greasy or shiny. Oily skin needs an anti-wrinkle cream that combats loss of elasticity and reduces the oily and shiny shape of the skin.
Anti-wrinkle cream intended for oily skin should protect the latter from factors that accelerate skin aging, such as the sun.
It should therefore contain sunscreens, along with elements that fight free molecules and the harmful effects of skin oxidation by the sun.
Avoid applying anti-wrinkle cream for oily skin around the eye contour.
Mixed skin: mixed skin is characterized by different texture according to the area of the face. The middle area of the face is usually oily
While the rest of the face is dry. So mixed skin tends to irritate easily. Since most areas of the face are dry
Mixed skin should be considered dry skin in relation to anti-aging products.
This type of skin does not speak harsh, such as cold dry air, hot water and strong soaps.
Anti-wrinkle cream intended for mixed skin should contain sunscreens
Besides elements struggling free particles. Avoid acidic substances
(Alpha hydroxy acids such as fruit acids, lactic acid and glycolic acid...) That irritate this type of skin.
