Aging starts from our cells: cellular aging is the result of cellular assault, DNA Damage, water loss and the natural aging process. Therefore, visible signs of aging start at the cellular level but show on the skin’s surface as lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, pigmentation, dehydration and even congestion.
Rather than bore you with the usual skincare regimen of Cleanse, Tone, Treat and Moisturize which you must do, we would rather dive into what you must infuse in your usual skincare regimen to individually tackle all the visible signs of aging for a younger looking radiant skin.
Hydrate your skin
A very common sign of aging is skin dehydration, which causes dryness, tightness, and flakiness of the skin as well as fines lines! To reverse dehydration, eat water-rich food like raw fruits, vegetables and other water-rich foods containing nutrients, vitamins, minerals and fiber that can improve your health, develop your immune system, strengthen your muscles and boost your athletic performance. In addition, you should use skincare products that not only moisturize the skin but possess the ability to lock in moisture to the skin and increase retention for up to 5 days. A very good example is the Nutrient Charged Water Gel by Murad for face; an intensely hydrating oil-free water gel that contains a revolutionary Cumulative Hydration-Release Technology that treats dry and dull skin, fine lines & wrinkles as well as rough skin texture.
Don’t forget to hydrate your body as well for an overall youthful glow by using hydrating body products such as Firming Peptide Body Treatment; A proprietary peptide blend formulated to hydrate, moisturize, restore tone and texture while protecting elastin to preserve youthful resilience. And also remember to hydrate and rejuvenate your hands to keep them young with treatments specially formulated for the purpose like Murad Rejuvenating AHA Hand Cream.
Boost skin’s elastin
As we get older, our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin making the skin loose its firmness and elasticity which leads to saggy skin. To improve skin’s elastin, consume a lot of vegetables and other foods rich in omega 3 fatty acid and lean protein like amino acid.
Also you need to exfoliate regularly using products that contains a blend of Lactic and Glycolic Acids, Hyaluronic Acid and botanical extracts to gently and evenly exfoliate to smooth skin while stimulating the production of new elastin and collagen to restore a youthful glow. We suggest you use a peel for your face rather than a scrub if you are adverse to friction, and if your exfoliator comes with other anti-aging benefits like hydrators, all the better. A good example is the Murad Hydro-Aqua Peel, a unique 2-step system that gives skin a gentle peel with anti-aging benefits by intensely infusing hydration to visibly minimize fine lines and wrinkles, retexturize and brighten skin revealing a youthful glow.
Another amazing example of an exfoliator is the Rapid Resurfacing Peel and Extra Strength Facial Peel with 10% Glycolic Acid which rapidly resurfaces dull skin for a smoother, softer, more youthful texture. No use having a youthful face with a sagging body, right? Boost your body’s elasticity with skincare products such as Murad Firm and Tone Serum and that keeps skin young and supple by increasing skin elasticity and radiance while masking imperfections.
Treat skin from inside out
This is very important because as mentioned earlier, aging starts at the cellular level, so to actively combat skin concerns for faster results, treat your skin from the inside, not just with the right diet but with supplements that can repair cells and reverse the visible signs of aging from the inside. A good example is the Hydro Glow supplements which hydrate the skin from within by boosting cellular hydration levels, promote smoother, firmer skin as well as minimize lines and wrinkles.
Boost Skin’s Brightness
Pigmentation or hyperpigmentation as it is popularly called is a condition that darkens patches of your skin. As we age, skin looks thinner, paler, and large pigmented spots, including age spots, liver spots, or lentigos, may appear in sun-exposed areas. Besides keeping a healthy diet and avoiding exposure to sun, treat hyperpigmentation with fast-acting treatment that can fade all manner of pigmentation – the Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum by Murad. It rapidly reduces the appearance of dark spots, age spots and even freckles in as little as one week.
