Easing the signs of aging is not a new concept. Take a look back thousands of years and you’ll see similarities in the focus on youthful, radiant looking skin. Here at Glo Skin Beauty, we strive to focus on prevention as much as possible, but understand that for some, more than just prevention is necessary.
What Happens to the Skin as it Ages Aging is associated with two main factors: internal and external. Internal factors such as genetic influence and the natural wear and slow down processes of hormones have an influence on the skin’s aging process- about 10-20 percent. Unfortunately, internal factors cannot be prevented, but by understanding how the skin is changing, it is possible to alter one’s regimen to encourage cells to act in a more youthful manner and help encourage the production of collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic Acid. As the body ages during and after menopause, estrogen, the hormone responsible for cell turnover, levels lower, leading to accelerated signs of aging. As skin’s normal functions slow down, skin becomes dry and thin, while losing elasticity- making it prone to fine lines and wrinkles.
The other main factor that contributes to skin’s signs of aging is external. External factors include how and where we live and account for roughly 80-90 percent of the skin’s aging symptoms. Things such as diet, sleeping habits, smoking, medications, skincare habits and sun exposure can dramatically accelerate signs of aging. Did you know, the sun is the most damaging external factor, with 80-90% of external aging caused by UV exposure. The sun’s rays are able to penetrate into the dermis and can permanently alter DNA, resulting in a break down of collagen and elastin, causing photoaging. With that being said, there is hope! External factors can be prevented! By leading a healthy lifestyle, incorporating sunscreen and a Vitamin C serum daily, and following even a basic skin care regimen, it is possible to slow the effects of external factors on the skin.
How to Firm Skin Whether you’re just starting your skincare journey or in the midst of seeing your skin’s signs of aging, we have products developed with advanced technology to help prevent and possibly reverse signs of aging. Glo Skin Beauty’s Firm Skin Solution helps improve skin renewal and increase hydration levels to firm, condition and protect the skin with antioxidants, Retinol and peptides. Regular facials with an added peel will also help to slough off dead skin cells, revealing radiant new skin.
