Cause

Aging is a natural part of life, but did you know that our skin cells begin renewing more slowly as we age? This affects the appearance of our skin. Here are a few things that speed up the aging process (and greatly impact the way our skin looks and feels):

  • Skin cells start renewing at a slower pace
  • Circulation within the skin becomes reduced
  • We accumulate tissue damage due to natural, endogenous aging (“genetic clock”).
  • Environmental factors (e.g. sun, cigarette smoke, climate, air pollution, nutrition, stress).

Cosmetic anti-aging products can slow down the aging process, but they can’t completely reverse it (yet!).

The Do’s and Don’t’s

  • Avoid irritating your skin with cleansers that are too neutral or aggressive. Use mild, soap-free cleansing products with pH 5.5 for sensitive skin (e.g. Sebamed Liquid Face and Body Wash for normal skin, Sebamed Anti-Dry Wash Emulsion for dry skin) whenever you wash, shower, or bathe.
  • Give your skin a bit more love with additional nutrients, protective agents, lipids, and moisturizers. These nutrients go a long way to make up for the fact that you’re starting to produce them more slowly.
  • Apply high-quality skin care products regularly (everyday, if you can), especially on skin sites that are exposed to environmental stress.
  • Choose products that work best for your skin type.
  • Choose creams and lotions with pH 5.5 (like Sebamed Q10 Anti-Aging products) to maintain the optimal level of acidity for your skin.
  • Avoid and/or protect yourself from environmental factors that speed up skin aging, especially cigarette smoke and sun.
  • Support skin circulation with regular exercise (walking for 30 minutes 3 days per week is shown to make a huge difference!) and massages. Consistently applying and massaging creams and lotions into your skin is a great way to increase circulation.
  • Protect your skin from becoming dry or irritated after sunbathing by moisturizing after every time.
  • Drink at least 2 liters of water, herbal tea, or fruit juice daily. Staying hydrated is vital for healthy skin.
  • Eat food rich in minerals, vitamins, and essential oils.
  • Get at least 7 hours of sleep every night.
