As we get older, fighting the signs of aging can seem like a losing battle. While you cannot stop the clock, there are things you can do to improve the youthful appearance of your skin.
The American Academy of Dermatology lists a number of ways that we can reduce premature skin aging. Among them are:
- Protect your skin from the sun
- Replace tanning with a self-tanner
- Stop smoking
- Eat a healthy diet
- Cut back alcohol consumption
- Clean your skin without scrubbing
- Wash your face regularly
Often you will find trouble areas for the skin around your face that results in baggy eyelids and puffiness around the eyes, sagging skin around the jawline resulting in the double-chin look, and wrinkles. Let’s look more deeply at those three.
Bags Under Eyes
Mild puffy swelling under the eyes is a normal consequence of aging. The tissues around your eyes weaken over time, allowing fat and sometimes fluid to accumulate. This condition can become so troublesome to require minor surgery. Even more rarely is an underlying disease the culprit.
Causes for bags under the eyes may include allergies, fluid retention, heredity, lack of sleep, and smoking.
Genucel by Chamonix uses technology and natural ingredients to combat the condition. A plant stem cell treatment cultivated from Malus domestica, a plant in the rose family, combined with eyeseryl, a peptide that dramatically reduces the formation of bags under the eyes, gives you a boost in the fight against Mother Nature.
A double chin is a bit different in that it may be causes by weight gain. In that case, the way to alleviate is obvious. Other times, the cause is looser skin caused by aging. Either way, once the skin sags, subcutaneous fat fills the area. It is an eyesore but some help is available.
Genucel’s Jawline Treatment uses the company’s MDL technology to tighten the skin all the way from the chin to below the eyes. This technology brings together two peptides, Meadowlactone and Matrixyl 3000, to work together to trap the moisturizing ingredients on the skin. This helps create the best chance for absorption in the skin.
Wrinkles can happen all over the body but they are most notable on the face. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and dries out. This process can lead to creases, lines, and wrinkles. When you are wrong, your skin has the flexibility to bounce back. This erosion of elasticity can be exacerbated by exposure to the sun.
The sun’s UV rays break down the fibers that make up the connective tissues just below our skin. There are other causes. Anything that causes dry skin can increase the likelihood of wrinkles.
Genucel has three products that can help with wrinkles.
XV uses peptides, hyaluronic acid, vitamins B3 and B6, and antioxidants to help smooth your wrinkles. What you won’t find is any mineral oil or parabens. Immediate Effects is safe and natural. It smooths away the wrinkles around the eyes and lasts for up to 24 hours. Deep Firming Serum is a powerful antioxidant that helps maximize pores and stimulate the skin. The Liposome Technology in Deep Firming Solution relies on Vitamin C as its active ingredient.
