Our skin aging is influenced by three essential components:
Our genes, over which we have no control
The individual lifestyle
Environmental factors, such as excessive sun exposure, accelerate skin aging, promote the formation of free radicals and promote the breakdown of collagen. A moisturizing day cream with a sun protection factor helps prevent wrinkles. Sufficient sleep is important for skin that looks fresh for longer. We recommend seven to eight hours a night, because during these hours our skin regenerates and recovers. In addition, while we sleep, the production of interleukins (messenger substances of the cells of the immune system) are stimulated and growth hormones are released. Stress and lack of sleep quickly make the skin look old and wrinkled.
Healthy lifestyle to prevent wrinkles
In addition to regular exercise, a healthy diet is also important. Many healthy foods contain antioxidants that neutralize free radicals. They are aggressive oxygen compounds that attack our cells and cause wrinkled, gray skin. Antioxidants are found in foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts and fish. Adequate hydration of at least 2 liters is also necessary to prevent wrinkles. Tip: Avoid sugary drinks.
Ewa's beauty secrets: Astaxanthin & Collagen
Ewa won a beauty contest thanks her Medicorp beauty products.
Collagen is the most common protein in our body. It forms a kind of scaffold over which the skin is stretched. In old age, this scaffold becomes brittle and folds form where it tears. Collagen is the basis of smooth and wrinkle-free skin.
Astaxanthin works twice against wrinkles. First, it protects the collagen in the skin from free radical damage. Second, it inhibits collagen-degrading enzymes that are activated when stressed. Astaxanthin thus stimulates the skin's own collagen synthesis and ensures long-term smooth skin and firm skin.
The best anti-aging home remedies:
Lemons mainly contain acid - these should ensure that excess skin cells are removed and the skin's recovery (regeneration) is promoted.
Lemon application: Halve a fresh lemon and spread citric acid on your skin. Please note that this procedure should only be repeated twice a week - otherwise there is a risk that your skin will dry out, after all, it is acid. You should also make sure that you have no open wounds on the face and hands.
Almonds are very valuable, they contain vitamin E, Fibres, Oleic acid, folic acid, Calcium and Zinc. This combination of nutrients is said to slow down the aging process of the skin. Even inside and outside!
Use of almonds: As food or as a face mask - mix ground almonds with warm milk (water is also possible) and mix with a little honey to a mass. Apply the paste to your skin, massage in and leave on for about 15 minutes, then wash off with warm water.
It is not without reason that aloe vera is represented in various beauty products. The green sticks contain secondary plant substances that prevent cell damage. Aloe vera helps the skin to regenerate.
The miracle plant cannot prevent wrinkles, but at least noticeably delay them. The application is very easy: You simply cut off a leaf from a fresh plant and apply the gel from the inside to the skin. Then you leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Then you rinse it off with lukewarm water. You can find the plant on the Internet or in selected department stores.
