A recent survey, by a large multinational company, showed that freckles distract others attention, from the basic features, which are the person's eyes and mouth, and add up to 10 years. For their presence is liable the unbalanced growth of melanocytes in areas, which may be caused by hormonal disorders, sun, environmental stress, even by the use of light sensitive substances e.g. salicylic acid, or skin injury.
Choose cosmetics with bleach, blurring, to a degree, discoloration, such as ascorbic acid, kojic acid, alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), and of course, always protect your face with a sunscreen with a high SPF, advises, German dermatologist Frauke Hansen. If the brown spots are very strong, try hydroquinone, an extremely active component (so it is a prescription). Other, more invasive methods to tackle is the laser, chemical peels, dermabrasion with crystals and cryotherapy.
• Wrinkles / Fine Lines
Recent studies show, that one in six women begins to worry about her wrinkles around the eyes (known as "crow's feet") from the beginning of 20 years. Fine lines and wrinkles are caused when the collagen fibers are destroyed. Something that is inevitable over time, but aggravated by bad habits such as sun exposure, smoking, alcohol and poor diet.
Move on two directions: Choose a cosmetic with retinol, hyaluronic acid, glucans (sugars that activate cell renewal) and peptides that will enhance the production of collagen and reduce the depth of wrinkles, and reduce the intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates, who are guilty of glycation, which destroys collagen and elastin and is responsible for premature aging.
"Environmental factors, such as pollution, smoking, cold, and intrinsic causes, such as stress, fatigue, and decreased with time cellular energy, disrupts the microcirculation, oxidize proteins of the skin and prevent the nutrients and oxygen to penetrate into the deeper layers, "explain facialists. Therefore, the skin loses its connotation of health color and becomes grey and dull.
Substances such as glycolic and linoleic acid and retinoids accelerate the desquamation process. Also, vitamins, minerals, moisturizing complexes and minerals, oxygenate the cells and stimulate their metabolism.
“After mid-20’s, collagen fibers located in the dermis and the subcutaneous layer of the skin are reduced in both quantity and quality. Thus, the supportive layer of skin thinners, the skin ceases to be firm and elastic and is subordinated to the law of gravity, thereby altering it’s oval face shape. Equally destructive role plays the Sun: UVA radiation, which penetrates the skin, is destroying the capillaries, fibroblasts, proteins and cells.
Intensify production of collagen and elastin by peptide complexes, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, polyphenols and phospholipids. Another collagen stimulation way is electrostimulation.
•Dark circles / bags
Are wrinkles to blame for our tired looks? The bright, relaxed look , even when we have wrinkles, is more flattering, experts say.
Over time, the skin in the most sensitive face regions, is tapered. So dark vessels in the area are appearing more strongly, while the retention and accumulation of toxins is intensifying. Equally catalytic factors are stress, lack of exercise and too much salt, which makes the lymphatic system, which is responsible for detoxifying the body, to become lazy.
Caffeine is one of the best ingredients to tackle the problem. It’s stimulant properties help microcirculation and tighten the skin.
Even after clubbing, wrap an ice cube with a paper towel and gently massage the area for 1-2 for an express rejuvenation.
