Anti-aging skin care
Aloe Vera: nature's ancient anti-aging skin care secret
Aloe Vera is possibly one of nature's most powerful antioxidants, containing more than 250 known nutrients and active plant compounds giving it powerful anti-aging properties. Antioxidants bind with free-radicals and work to neutralize the destruction they cause while helping to repair damaged cells. Free radicals are atoms with at least one unpaired electron that can cause celluar damage. These free-radicals, as well as pollution and other factors, can cause pre-mature aging. Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion that combines the powerful anti-aging powers of Aloe Vera with other active natural ingredients to protect against the signs of aging skin.
Prevent premature skin aging with sun protection
Over-exposure to UVA and UVB rays are the leading cause of premature skin aging. Spending days outdoors without protection from the sun can leave you with wrinkles, age spots, broken capillaries and dry, leathery skin. Sun exposure is also responsible for the breakdown of collagen that causes an overall loss of skin firmness.
The best anti-aging skin care routine to follow is applying a SPF 15 lotion daily that nourishes and moisturizes while it protects. Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 combines the gentle, natural blend of Skin MD Natural with UVA and UVB protection of SPF 15. Applied daily it can help protect against sunburns and premature signs of aging.
Protect against pollution to prevent premature aging
Pollution from car exhaust, smog, and other types of urban pollution create free-radicals. These free-radicals damage skin and can decrease collagen, causing wrinkles. Using a shielding lotion that protects skin from pollution and environmental irritants may help prevent free-radical damage to collagen.
Anti-aging skin care should include avoiding:
Cigarette smoke significantly increases dryness and wrinkling of the skin. As the smoke destroys Vitamin C, which is important for keeping the skin moist and plump, it is also thought to aggravate the damage caused by sun exposure. Additionally, smoking increases the likelyhood of developing wrinkles around the mouth.
Lack of exercise:
Exercise contributes to the younger appearance of the skin as it helps keep muscles toned and improves blood circulation.
Lack of sleep:
Sleep allows the body and skin to rest and rejuvenate, to restore its defenses, rebuild what has been lost throughout the day and get ready for the next day. Lack of sleep causes you to look and feel tired with dark circles around the eyes and puffiness of the face.
Extremes of temperature/exposure to irritants:
Harsh weather, exposure to environmental irritants, and constant contact with moisture-robbing materials dry out the skin and remove its protective layer. This causes irritation which may result in developing various skin disorders.
