Baby Boomers Invented The ABC’s of Anti-Aging Skin Care
Today’s baby boomer woman is not the only one worried about wrinkles, dark spots and frown lines caused by aging so everything anti-aging is important. There has also been a shift with the baby boomer man discovering that they too would like to look younger and have begun to care about wrinkles and lines. It is not unusual for both baby boomer women and men to use a variety of anti-aging skin products like creams or special serums to help prevent wrinkles on their faces and around their eyes. An issue arises when they do not do the research about what is inside the product.
To understand the aging process with the cause or effects of wrinkles and lines we must first discuss what causes aging skin to happen in the first place. Noticeable skin aging can be a factor as early as our mid 20’s when our bodies begin to naturally slow. The skin cells replacement becomes slower and the natural result is also slowing skin surface replacements with a slightly rougher skin tone. This is most noticeable around the eyes and on the cheeks in general. You might also even begin to see blemishes that you had not had a problem with since your teenage years. The mid-40’s begins to produce even thinner skin layers because of hormonal changes that our bodies endure.
To make matters worse along with the thinning of our skin comes sensitivity to the environment which leads to abrasiveness. The production of collagen coupled with a decrease in elastin results in our skin losing a great deal of elasticity and general strength. Where you live also plays a factor with exposure to heat or even cold and excessive sun time. If that wasn’t bad enough we also begin to see a decrease in moisture and this leads to our faces feeling dryer due to our glands starting to become less active. Finally our radiance begins to disappear because the amount of blood vessels is reduced and the end result is you begin to look more mature. This is when baby boomers first become aware of all the anti-aging products on the market.
Now you can understand that there are a many processes happening that you were not even aware of. Yet while this is all happening we have found one more issue that makes our skin begin to sag and that is the earth’s gravity. The gravitational pull is reflected in the sagging skin sections and this means it is time to exercise more.
So what can a baby boomer do to counter all of the effects aging has on our bodies? First and foremost you must always use a good anti-aging cream based moisturizer to counter balance the wrinkles you are seeing. This must be done each day and preferably upon rising in the morning and at night just before bed. One note though is to always remember that using harsh soaps before the moisturizer can also remove the existing moisture and natural oils of your skin. Change to milder, gentler soaps to help diminish your aging face skin by hydrating and at the same time replenishing your skin.
Research has also shown that in addition to using a good moisturizer a healthy eating plan containing more fiber, high in fruits and vegetables along with increased Vitamin E will improve your health, and restore the baby boomers natural glow. Another simple tip that also can help with aging skin types is to drink water each day. Water helps you replace the moisture in the skin and can slow the appearance of wrinkles. This quick yet simple tip will help you develop your own anti-aging treatment and it is free.
Selecting the right anti-aging skin care cream is important and your skin will show the results very quickly so you must be careful with the products you select. Read the labels. Make sure that it is a reputable anti-aging company with various skin type choices.
As a final note always use a good sunscreen to help protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. This should be used all year long, in every climate and for every skin type not just during the summer.
