ALTHOUGH THE AGEING OF THE SKIN MAY AT FIRST SEEM TO BE A MATTER OF ESTHETICS, WE NOW KNOW IT’S MUCH MORE THAN THAT. WE AGE AS WE LIVE, THE SAYING GOES, AND IT CONTAINS A LOT OF TRUTH. JUST THINK ABOUT THE MORE WRINKLED SKIN OF SMOKERS AND THOSE WHO LIE A LOT IN THE SUN WITHOUT SUN PROTECTION.
What we see as wrinkled, saggy skin with patches of pigmentation is in fact the visible result of the imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in our body.
The ageing of the skin has external and internal causes but its result is still the sum of all the damages accumulating throughout the years. These damages ravage the collagen and elastin fibers ensuring the tightness and hydration of the skin and they change the structure of hyaluronic acid, causing wrinkles and patches of pigmentation in the end. Some factors are unavoidable like natural ageing that resulting in decreasing collagen levels and others can only be avoided with difficulty, such as diet, smoking, alcohol consumption and environmental contamination.
HOW CAN YOU PRESERVE THE HEALTH AND BEAUTY OF YOUR SKIN?
Primarily with a healthy lifestyle: avoiding smoking and alcohol consumption, drinking lots of liquids, a diet rich in vegetables and fruits and the use of proper sun protection in summer and winter alike!
In addition, try to consume the most important substances supporting your skin in the form of food supplements or creams. Let’s see what they are!
COLLAGEN is the main protein in the connective tissues and the skin. If the balance of free radicals and antioxidants is lost, the free radicals may cause structural damage to the collagen. At a young age the body can replace the damaged collagen fast but the production of collagen drastically drops over the age of 21 so UV radiation, smoking and an improper diet may lead to the formation of wrinkles and, as a result, your skin loses its flexibility and youthful appearance. According to the studies, collagen entered from the outside can not only be absorbed and integrated in the skin but it can also stimulate the collagen synthesis of the skin itself, so you should definitely consider this natural active ingredient if your goal is to prevent skin ageing.
Like collagen HYALURONIC ACID has enormous water binding capacity: it can bind several times its own weight so it has key importance in maintaining the hydration of the skin. Its quantity in the skin drastically decreases over the age of 30 and its quality also deteriorates with time so the change in the hydration of your skin also becomes visible. Just like collagen, hyaluronic acid can also be supplemented; it’s useful to apply targeted treatment of the upper layer of the skin with hyaluronic acid in the form of creams, while the deeper layers should be supported internally, through the diet.
VITAMIN A and the other carotenoids (beta-carotenoid, lutein, zeaxanthin) are important elements of protecting the skin against UV radiation. As both the upper and the deeper layers of the skin require vitamin A to function in a healthy way, it’s worth paying attention to this active ingredient as well!
VITAMINS C AND E have their effects as antioxidants and protect the cells from the free radicals damaging collagen, while they have an active role in collagen generation, too.
The cell regeneration and energy augmentation effects of Q10 positively impact the condition of the skin among other things. The body can produce the necessary amounts itself until the age of 30 but as the years go by the body’s own Q10 production gradually decreases so its consumption is more than useful.
It should be known about ceramides that the skin can naturally produce them but their quantities may decrease due to chemical substances and environmental effects, as well as soap or even hot water. It is more and more clearly visible that the protective layer of the skin may damage without the proper proportion of cermides, which may lead to dryness and irritation. So supplementing them may effectively increase the moisture content of the skin.
Regarding herbs and fruits, let’s now underline pomegranate: its valuable ellagic acid content may help to evade collagen damages caused by UV radiation and provide assistance against the development of wrinkles due to UV radiation.
On the other hand, field horsetail can stimulate the skin’s own collagen production, thus protecting its flexibility.
