Anti-Aging Skin Care: The Fundamentals


People often wonder, "Which anti-ageing skin care products have been demonstrated to be effective?" when they first start researching the topic.

Suppose you're looking to design a skin rejuvenation regimen that integrates the anti-ageing skin care procedures and strategies that best address your ageing skin issues. In that case, you'll need accurate information about the many anti-ageing therapies on the market.

Facts about anti-ageing skin care procedures are the first step toward efficient skin rejuvenation. In addition, studies have shown that various active substances are potent skin rejuvenators. For example, two vitamin A derivatives, retinol and retinyl palmitate, are highly effective therapies.

Although the Retin A or Renova vitamin A treatments are the most vital, most irritating treatments of the vitamin A alternatives, they can only be prescribed. Ask your doctor if you qualify for the prescription vitamin A treatment Retin A or Renova if your skin desperately needs rejuvenation.

For those who aren't using retinol, it is a good idea to incorporate one of the other alternatives into your skin care regimen. Up to one per cent of retinol can be found in over-the-counter products. The higher the concentration, the more potent the treatment will be. The more potent retinol products can irritate the skin, so read the instructions carefully before use. To help your skin acclimate to the treatments, it's best to begin with, lower concentrations and work your way up. Retinyl Palmitate, a vitamin A derivative, is thought to have the most effective rejuvenating properties of all the Vitamin A choices.

In terms of anti-ageing skin rejuvenation, chemical exfoliants, such as alpha- or beta-hydroxyl acid (AHA or BHA), are the next most effective option. AHA glycolic acid is the most widely used of these acids. Concentrations of 8 per cent to 15 per cent of glycolic acid should be used depending on your skin's sensitivity. To avoid irritating your skin, start with a lesser concentration and gradually increase it to 10% and 15%, depending on your skin's tolerance.

Finally, sunscreen is the most vital and essential component of any successful skin rejuvenation regimen.
