Love Yourself- Special Skin Care Products (Anti-Ageing)

As we celebrate our Birthday each year, our body goes through the process of Ageing. The internal as well as external body parts go through this process. It seems to be more evident on our skin and hair.

But, What exactly is Ageing?
The hair starts thinning and greying (We'll come to hair in future posts...) and skin... where to start... shows so many signs of ageing. As you are growing up (but unlike our kids... literally speaking we stop growing up and rather start growing across... ), you may experience one or many of the signs mentioned in the list below. Let's take a look at what those are-
  • Discoloration of Skin- The skin starts loosing its healthy pink colour and starts appearing pale and shallow mainly due to the slowing down of blood circulation. This is commonly observed in lighter skin tones than in darker ones. Exercising helps to increase blood circulation and can bring back the healthy glow whereas excessive smoking, alcohol consumption and sun exposure can lead to early loss of skin color.
  • Wrinkles (Smile lines/ Crows feet etc. etc.) and Fine Lines- These are a result of lack of elasticity  and flexibility in skin fibers. Regular toning helps to retain elasticity for a longer time and may delay the appearance of wrinkles. Excess Smoking, alcohol consumption and exposure to sunlight let them make an early appearance.
  • Skin Pigmentation- Dark colored spots (specially brown color  start appearing on skin due to accumulation of Melanocytes in certain areas. This is aggravated by over exposure to sun.
  • Under Eye Dark Circles- Check the post on Dark Circles.
  • Sagging Skin- Sagging is the result of loss of fat pad under the skin.
  • Dry Skin- It is caused by loss of skin's ability to retain moisture for a longer period. One of the cause for this is the hormonal change that we go through. Daily routine of moisturizing atleast twice or as and when required will help as will drinking plenty of water.

What are Anti- Ageing Creams/ Lotions and How do they Help?
Anti- aging products are moisturizer based and help in reducing the Wrinkles, Discoloration, Sagginess and Dryness of the skin. These contain ingredients like Retinol, Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Collagen boosting agents, Antioxidants, Sunscreen, Vitamin C and E etc. These all help in Cell Renewal, reduction in Wrinkles and fine Lines, Exfoliation of Dead cells, prevention of Damage caused by Free Radicals, Protection from Sun and basic healing of skin.
REMEMBER- All these products will only delay the appearance of signs of aging and not necessarily prevent it completely.

When to Start using Anti-Ageing Products
For most of us, the signs appear around 30. Late 20's or early 30's is a good time to start using anti-ageing products.
