Firming and Toning Skin Care Solutions
With age, your body naturally produces fewer and fewer key structural proteins called collagen and elastin. These proteins give youthful skin its elasticity and strength, and as your body manufactures less of them, the tissue becomes more prone to sagging and wrinkling. Reduced skin elasticity also increases the likelihood of fatty deposits of cellulite
forming beneath the tissue.
If you're noticing more cellulite or are troubled by sagging skin, firming and toning anti-aging products can help you to address the problem. These skin care
products contain ingredients like peptides and vitamin C that support the productions of collagen fibers to improve skin tone.
Serums That Revitalize and Protect
Are fine lines and wrinkles appearing much sooner than you'd hoped? Exposure to harmful free radicals in UV energy and environmental pollutants can speed up the aging process, as these reactive particles can damage skin cells. Anti-aging serums
can be used to effectively address the premature development of signs of aging.
Highly concentrated, serums work in different ways to promote a youthful complexion. Some act on damaged skin to support the repair of the tissue. Others provide antioxidant protection to limit future damage by free radicals. You can read the product descriptions of the serums in this product selection to learn more about the benefits that they provide.
Promoting an Even Skin Tone with Age
The forces that cause skin to wrinkle prematurely can also contribute to the appearance of hyperpigmentation or age spots on the complexion. Some anti-aging products are formulated specifically to address age-related skin discoloration, and there are also multifunction products that simultaneously soften lines and wrinkles while reducing the prominence of age spots.
Both types of products typically work by disrupting the production of melanin skin pigments. This can be done with the FDA-approved medication for skin discoloration treatment, hydroquinone, or with natural ingredients like kojic acid.
Solutions for Day and Night
Many anti-aging skin care products are formulated for use either during the day or at night. Daytime products often provide antioxidant protection from free radicals and may contain sunscreen ingredients. Applying one of these formulas in the morning can help to shield your skin from the forces of aging that you encounter during the day.
Some nighttime anti-aging skin care products assist with the body's natural tissue repair processes that take place while you sleep. Others contain ingredients that can increase sun sensitivity and are more safely used at night. An example is retinol, which increases cellular turnover to resurface and rejuvenate the skin.
