Various measures for skin rejuvenation

The ability of the skin to constantly renew itself decreases with age. On average, old skin takes twice as long, i.e. up to eight weeks, to renew itself. This is why the healing of wounds is slower in older people. As a result of the decreasing sebum and sweat gland function, the natural acid mantle changes. The skin becomes drier and thinner because it can no longer retain sufficient moisture and fat.

The aging process brings with it a number of unpleasant symptoms: dry skin, wrinkles, skin spots, sagging cheeks and many others. Aging is based on a natural, genetically determined change in the body, in which hormonal changes play a central role. The speed and intensity of skin aging depends largely on external factors, but also on the lifestyle (stress, lack of sleep, unhealthy diet, etc.).

Consistent anti-aging skin care plan

Care should be started early, preferably from adolescence (coming of age). Moisturising creams with sun protection factor (at least 15) as day cosmetics are necessary to prevent skin damage. From the age of 35 on, skin care products should contain vitamin C, E or co-enzyme Q10 and retinol. This protects the cells from aging and promotes their renewal. Treatments with fruit acids (peeling) reduce wrinkles and spots and refresh the skin. This effect is also achieved by other rejuvenation methods such as Hydra Facial, Peelings (Green peel®), IPL, Tixel, Microneedling(Dermapen®) et cetera.

 

Water for the tension force

Without liquid the skin loses its elasticity, therefore it is important to drink enough every day (preferably water or unsweetened tea). Every day, the skin alone releases large quantities of water through 2 million small sweat glands. During physical exertion up to 5 litres of water can evaporate.

Healthy nutrition

Fish, pulses, low-fat milk, fruit and vegetables are important to provide the skin with sufficient vitamins and trace elements. Organic products are to be given preference without fail. As skin protection and regeneration aid against antioxidants, vitamins C and E, plant dyes from tomatoes or phytohormones from soya help. A vitamin B6 deficiency leads to a disturbed maturation of the connective tissue, beta-carotene is needed for the skin to grow. Vitamin B2 is important for the formation of enzymes in the skin and mucous membranes and prevents cracks in the corners of the mouth and lips. Iron is essential as a trace element for blood formation and tissue.
Vitamin D is also a very important hormone for bones, skin and the immune system.
