“Aging is a complex and very poorly understood process. Its causes can be free radicals and oxidative stress, excessive photodamage, impaired barrier function of the stratum corneum of the skin, chronic inflammation, hormonal imbalance, non-enzymatic glycation, impaired microbiota of the skin, excessive load stress factors. The secret of eternal youth is still not open. At the moment there are developments in some areas, causing a number of signs of aging, found a system that helps to partially slow down or temporarily block these processes. But no tool and no single procedure may not completely solve all the problems of aging skin. Accordingly, using whatever means, you must clearly understand the limit of its capacity, because the cosmetics and treatments that impose undue hopes, will become a source of frustration. However, applying all the same “eyes open” for the solution of specific achievable objectives, you can achieve impressive gains in the fight for youth”.
“To combat the signs of aging created an army of active components, each battalion of which has a specific directed action. Here and vitamins, and various probiotics and prebiotics, alpha-hydroxy acids, accelerators microcirculation, the protectors of the barrier structures of the skin, anti-inflammatory agents, a variety of liposome-fillers, bleaching assets. Because anti-aging active components of thousands, I would like to name some of them — the most commonly used and effective”.
“How many of them have said how many girls they scared… are called Stem cells, which initially do not have any indication of specialization, that is, in other words — nothing useful in the body do not, have a very low metabolic activity and very rarely shared. And only when the urgency of stem cells “Wake up”, begin to take form and to do exactly what organism is most needed, acquiring the features and characteristics of normal cells. As long as stem skin cells retain their ability to reproduce and functionality, there remains a possibility of rejuvenation of the skin due to their re-activation. Over time, the number and division rate is reduced. It is therefore necessary to create conditions, which could shake up “dozing”. Fitostvolovye cells in cosmetics doing exactly that. It is now widely used stem cells on the basis of olive (Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Meristem Cell Culture), Apple and several others.”
“One of the most famous acid which participates in many important processes in the body, it is a polysaccharide and is classified into low and high molecular weight. Low molecular weight (or low) hyaluronic acid is able to penetrate deep into the skin with the main action — hydration. High molecular works mainly on the skin surface and acts as a lifting”.
In the era of modern cosmetology and accessibility of information we are increasingly trying to engage in self-diagnosis and self-treatment. However, each person has their own set of symptoms of aging, depending on Constitution, age, nutrition, lifestyle, and more. Beautician with special biophysical devices will help accurately determine the condition of the skin its biomechanical properties and the degree of moisture. However, this does not mean that the personal beautician is not a single step — you just need to carefully define the range of tasks that you would like to cope with makeup, and the look in the composition of suitable active components.
Peptides (amino acid polymers with a specific type of communication)
“They can be divided into several groups, each of which have different effect on the skin. Reshaping work on the improvement of a cellular matrix, the smoothing out of the skin. Peptides-regulators of homeostasis and improve overall quality of the skin, increasing its own defence potential, normalizing barrier function and increasing antioxidant activity in the skin. Peptides-neurotransmitters normalize the skin, and peptides-activators acting on the microcirculation and lymph circulation, eliminate swelling of the skin, so they are used to generate funds for the eye area, although these peptides can also be used in lymphatic drainage and anti-edema tools for the body.”
“Here it is better to speak about an entire group of active agents is the retinoids. These substances have the unique ability to affect all living cells, regulating the whole process group. Vitamin And not produced by the body and stored in the inactive form of retinol, which has a great influence on the condition of our skin, contributes to the leveling of terrain, eliminating pigmented spots and improving the complexion.
In cosmetics most often it is present an inactive form, for example, retinol palmitate. Thus, cosmetics enriches the skin and leaves the cells the right choice when to activate such a vital component. Currently known softer vegetable complex with a similar retinoid action — Lanablue (Sorbitol, Aphanizomenon Flos Aquae Extract), the so-called blue retinol based on the unique blue algae produced in a single lake in the world (Klamath, Oregon, United States).”
“This stuff is a nutritional amerosport, which in certain amounts is produced in our body. Any means with DMAE often have a PostScript “against skin aging” — they help to solve the problem of ptosis of the skin with premature aging. Also, DMAE prevents the formation of unwanted pigmentation”.
If you compare cosmetic products and injectable drugs, we can say that the injections are introduced mainly deep into the dermis, triggering a deep inner processes of restoration and cosmetics will have to undergo a series of obstacles on the surface and inside the skin to provide a similar effect. However, creams and serums, especially of peptide nature, are increasingly winning a place at the injection cosmetology, because they have albeit not as instant, but much more long lasting and safe effect, cumulative effect and pleasure from the enjoyable ritual of self-care.
“These substances are of plant origin differ from classical hormones because they have a lot of related biological effects:affect the secretion of growth factors, the work of a number of enzymes are strong antioxidants. Their sources can be different plants: soybeans (genistein, daidzein, glycitin), wild Yam, red clover (biochanin, formononetin, coumestrol), flax seeds (lignans), licorice or liquorice (glabridin), red grapes (resveratrol)”.
Superoxide dismutase (SOD)
“This is an extremely effective antioxidant, which is essentially multi-function: SOD reduces inflammation, accelerates skin regeneration and reduces irritation”.
“They are able to influence the condition of the skin on many levels: molecular, cellular, tissue. The most common are glycolic, lactic, citric, tartaric, malic. All the alpha acid decrease the pH of the skin surface, stimulating inflammation and further updates, however, each of the acids also possess any unique “gift”, so in cosmetics they are very often combined, reaching several goals. For example, lactic acid has moisturizing effect, lemon brightens the skin.”
“Probiotics are microorganisms-bacteria, which have a positive effect on the microflora. The most common at present are lactobacilli. Human skin is home to a number of bacteria that are symbiotic to live on its surface, adapted to an acidic environment. Bacteria-commensals directly involved in the maintenance of homeostasis (self-regulation) and positive effect on the immune system.
Cosmetics are not yet able to keep your skin eternally young, but competent care greatly prolong youthfulness of the skin and keep it healthy, attractive and tidy manner at any age.
To strengthen the effect from the media with active components, observing a healthy life, are less subjected to stress, and using these funds as intended and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. All anti-aging cosmetics is very carefully balanced products that require a kind of disciplined relationship. Purchase anti-aging products can be supplemented with vegetable oils, oatmeal masks, and many others, but it is better to plan strategy against premature aging and follow it, then the results will be much more impressive than a haphazard use of resources.”
