Who wouldn’t want to look young forever? The sad truth is that as we age so does our skin, but in the 21st century one of the biggest causes of skin aging isn’t just age, it is the sun. This truth has led to the spurt of anti-aging creams in the market. “Sunshine is an attack on the skin, and one way the skin defends itself is to make pigment," says Dr. Ranella Hirsch. Unfortunately in tropical and subtropical countries, where the sunshine is particularly harsh nearly all year round, this over pigmentation in the form of spots, blemishes, lines and other signs are even more pronounced.
How do you spot the signs of aging and combat them? This article takes inputs from several women and skincare experts to show you just what you can do to keep your skin feeling ‘forever young’.
Combating the signs of aging: In order for you to combat the signs of aging you must first know how to spot them. Many a times signs like skin darkening can be passed off and ignored as a tan. “The biggest culprit in skin aging is the sun. Factors like pollution and stress also play a minor role, but the key to any anti-aging therapy, has to do with sun exposure control and avoidance,” says Rachel Adams, one of UK’s leading skin care experts. Signs like skin darkening, wrinkles, blemishes, age spots, lines and others must be treated both individually and altogether as well.
What is the best way to combat signs of aging? Following a routine that cleanses, tones, moisturises and protects your skin is the only way to ensure that your skin is protected. Using anti-aging creams, anti-wrinkle creams or wrinkle treatments are the best ways to protect your skin against the signs of aging.
Blemishes and sunscreen: Blemishes are individual, unsightly marks that can occur on your skin due to sustained exposure to the sun. Prevention is the best way to treat blemishes. Use a sunscreen lotion or sunblock with a high SPF rating before you step out into the sunshine. Sunscreens also lock in essential moisture and keep your skin protected and nourished.
Dark spots and whitening therapy: Individual dark spots create a very patchy look to your otherwise even skin. Dark spots could also block pores and lead to periodical breakouts of acne. Using a dark spot removal cream and whitening therapy is the best way to get rid of dark spots. These creams also help moisturise the skin and provide essential nutrients for the skin’s overall health as well.
Uneven skin tone: Dark spots and blemishes together cause an uneven skin tone, which really ruin the look of your face. Controlling the production of melanin and drawing away the excess darkness in the skin is the way to go in treating this problem. Several anti-aging creams can be used in conjunction with sunscreens to treat uneven skin tone.
Iron out those wrinkles: Wrinkles or folds in the skin can be caused by overexposure to sunlight. Wrinkles are also characterised by the appearance of fine lines and cracks in the skin’s surface making it rough and listless to the touch. This happens primarily due to the breakdown of the collagen in the skin. Using collagen restoration therapy, in the form of anti-wrinkle creams, wrinkle lotion and face packs, you can restore the skin’s collagen balance and make it feel soft and firm again.
Soothing dull skin: The sun can rob the skin of its moisture, making it appear dull and listless. The best way to treat dull skin is through moisturization. Applying a moisturizer before stepping out and in the night, before sleeping will return the balance of the moisture to the skin. Spotting the signs of aging and using the right products to combat them is of prime importance in the war against skin aging.
