Sad as you may be because your skin is not as smooth and glowing as it used to be when you were in your twenties, you should not despair. There are ways to make your skin look younger and way better than it does now. Less collagen and more free radicals in your skin make it lose its youthful glow and firmness, but there are ways to keep your good looks no matter what age you may be.
Rejuvenation masks with honey
It has been well known for ages that honey is wonderful for skin – it clears it, soothes it, and makes it glow. For those who are too busy to go to a spa centre, there are many masks with honey which can easily be made at home. Mix one tablespoon of rice flour with one tablespoon of milk powder and honey, and add two spoons of green tea. Each of these ingredients is extremely good for skin, and applied together will make if smooth and soft.
Turmeric – miracle product
Turmeric is truly a miracle product because it helps the skin in so many ways – restores its glow, reduces inflammation, and solves problems with oily skin. Combine it with carrot juice, olive oil, and milk powder, depending on the result you are looking for. You will fall in love with it!
If you feel you have reached the point when only surgery could help you, facelift is the right procedure for you. It removes excess skin while at the same time adjusts muscles and tissue underneath, and finally redrapes the face and neck skin. This truly is a ‘gold standard’ of facial rejuvenation since it can correct nearly everything – from double chin to midface sagging.
Collagen in your skin is no longer produced as you get older, so your skin loses its volume and begins to sag. Luckily, there are dermal filler injections which contain hyaluronic acid which can lead to production of collagen in your skin once more. So it is not just about filing your skin, but the actual production of collagen is natural. However, since the effect of most filers only lasts up to one year, experts from Concept Cosmetics medicine recommend repeating the procedure to keep the production on collagen higher.
Speaking of injections, botox is also very popular, especially among Hollywood celebrities. Super-fine and nearly painless injections of this muscle relaxant into the muscles on one’s face result in wrinkle reduction or complete disappearance. No matter if it is about wrinkles on one’s forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes or the lines near the lips – botox smoothes it all out, and can even delay the need for the neck lift.
All in all, while there is no magic which could miraculously take away decades from your skin, there are ways to give your skin a healthy glow and restore some of its youthful smoothness. Do not be afraid to experiment and, no matter what method of youth-keeping you choose, do your best to keep it that way by following your doctor’s advice and reducing stress as much as you can.
The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
