The 6-Step Program For A Younger-Looking Skin (Part 1)

 

Your face is the first thing people notice when they look at you, and it unfortunately shows the telltale signs of aging the quickest. But you can help your face look younger, longer. Therefore, it is never too early or too late to start thinking about skin protection, skin renewal and maintenance treatment.

It is vital to keep to a regimen in which you protect yourself day and night to reduce the causes of accelerated skin aging.

Just follow the 6-step program and you are on the way to see some changes and improvements in the conditions of your skin gradually.

Step 1 – Cleansing 

Avoid washing your face with soap. The pH of soap is not what your skin needs, it will dry out your skin without cleaning it properly.

Go for one good cleanser which has pH close to your skin. Some cleansers contain some AHA or BHA content that may also help to open pores, exfoliate, dissolve oily glands and take off some of the old, dry skin cells from the surface.

A toner is the second step in the cleansing process. It removes the dirt that the cleanser missed. You may not aware that cleanser may not able to remove the dirt completely, therefore, it is far more better to cleanse in two steps than one. Refrain from using toner with alcohol as it may cause irritation to the skin.

Step 2 – Exfoliating

Don’t expect an AHA/BHA cleanser and toner is all the exfoliation you need. Usually a AHA/BHA face wash contains only 1 percent and you may need at least 8 percent that strength daily to see results.

To achieve a radiance skin, it is essential to exfoliate the skin properly. 

Exfoliation helps to remove the layer of dead skin cells on top of your skin and creates the ability to transport the potent ingredients into the skin. It stimulates cellular turnover, and thereby encourages the skin’s own collagen building and improves skin thickness. 

Exfoliation is also the final cleansing phase. It opens up clogged pores before they become little bumps under the skin.

One of the most effective ways is to exfoliate with an 8 -10 percent glycolic (AHA) pad every night.

Some good exfoliating pads you may try are Facial Firming Pads by Dr. Denese, Dr. Perricone’s Pore Refining Toner Pads and DDF Glycolic 10& Daily Cleansing Pads.

Step 3 – Skin Stimulating

Now the next important step is to stimulate your skin. Using a serum that feeds the skin water-soluble ingredients can help to address the appearance of the lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and loss of firmness and elasticity that occur with aging. These problems are usually due to the gradual loss of collagen and collagen breakdown. 

Collagen is the major skin protein, responsible for elasticity. The ultimate goal in skin care is to encourage the skin’s own collagen-producing machinery and stimulate collagen repair. 

Dr. Adrienne Denese, one of the first doctors in the United States to specialise in anti-aging medicine, advises that the best form to supply the important ingredients to the skin, to assure better delivery is a serum.

A serum is water-based if one of the first ingredients is water and it has a thin consistency. Other ingredients to look for include carnosine, resveratrol, bioactive oligopeptides, copper, vitamin C and vitamin B.

Some recommendations are Dr Denese’s Cellular Firming Serum, Growth Factor Serum, 15 percent Vitamin C Serum, Age Control Serum, Skinceuticals Serum 15 and Cellex C High Potency Serum.
