Proper lifestyle and healthy eating: how to delay the appearance of wrinkles, signs of ageing
Wrinkles are the natural sign of passing time, because with the years the skin loses thickness, cell renewal slows down and consequently there is less production of hyaluronic acid and collagen that help keep the skin hydrated, toned and vital.
The skin ageing process is influenced by genetic factors and bad habits. We explain how the skin ages
Also speeding up the skin ageing process are genetic factors, but also bad habits, e.g. smoking, alcohol, excessive coffee, a diet lacking in important nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and water. An excessively drastic diet leading to considerable weight loss can also lead to the premature appearance of wrinkles.
The sun, whether on holiday by the sea or in the mountains, can be a factor in skin ageing if we do not treat our skin with respect: remember to drink plenty of water, eat plenty of fruit and vegetables
Among the factors that further accelerate skin ageing is the sun, which dehydrates the skin and is a stressful factor for the epidermis, which can also suffer serious damage due to the appearance of melanomas. This is why when you return from holiday you notice that there are a few more wrinkles and your skin is dull. To prevent wrinkles, therefore, it is necessary to have good habits. For example, it is advisable to drink at least two litres of water a day; this purifies the body of toxins and waste, keeps the kidneys and liver healthy, and makes the skin brighter, hydrated and toned.
It is necessary to eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day, these provide a real supply of vitamins, very important for providing the skin with the right amount of antioxidants that help and stimulate natural cell regeneration and thus keep the whole body young, not just the skin.
Don’t be tempted by a quick tan: always protect your skin with the right sun creams, combined with moisturising creams
When you go on holiday, however, it is best not to be tempted by the conquest of a quick tan, better to use adequate protection, so that you have a pleasant amber colour, but without having dry, dehydrated skin. After exposure to the sun, it is good to use an excellent moisturiser. To avoid the appearance of wrinkles caused by the sun, it is also good to choose a day cream with a light sun filter when in town.
Facial cleansing to prevent and eliminate wrinkles and have glowing skin: listen carefully to what we have to tell you
All these measures certainly help to have a glowing skin and to prevent the appearance of wrinkles, but an important help can also come from cosmetics and in particular from moisturising creams.
Moisturising cream and skin: moisturising cream only multiplies its beneficial effect on the skin if the skin pores are unclogged
A premise must be made, however: a good moisturiser multiplies its beneficial potential if the skin is particularly receptive and therefore if the pores are unobstructed and the active ingredients can reach deep down and moisturise all the layers of the epidermis. This is why daily cleansing of the skin with specific cleansers to eliminate impurities and with cleansing milk and tonic is important. Once a week it is also good to do a peeling that removes dead cells, toxins and waste products that have accumulated, e.g. from pollution. A circular micromassage stimulates the microcirculation and allows good oxygenation of the tissues.
Now that the skin is ready, moisturising can proceed.
Eliminating and preventing wrinkles with cosmetics: pay attention to the formulation because it must be suitable for our age
To prevent and eliminate wrinkles, it is good to choose cosmetic products carefully, taking into account the formulation; it must be suitable for one’s age, a simple moisturising cream designed for 20-year-olds will not benefit the skin of a 40-year-old.
Check and read the Inci carefully to know the active ingredients
When checking the formulation, it is also good to assess the percentage of active ingredients present.
Serums and creams with snail slime: signs of ageing will be a pleasant memory
To prevent and eliminate wrinkles, the advice is to choose creams and serums based on snail slime. This is a natural ingredient that is taken from snails without having to kill them, but simply by passing them through special grids, where the snails naturally release a gelatinous substance, the same as we can all see in the countryside when a snail leaves its trail.
Snail slime: what it is and what are the properties of snail slime
The snail slime is then treated and purified to make it safe, at which point it is incorporated into cosmetic products as a basic ingredient.
Elastin and collagen: snail slime is nourishing for your skin
The efficacy of this powerful ingredient is due to the presence of elastin, which makes the skin elastic, collagen, which has a plumping effect and helps to retain moisture.
Mucopolysaccharides, proteins and Vitamin A and E: skin regenerators, contained in snail slime, which induce the body to produce collagen
In snail slime there is also a high concentration of mucopolysaccharides, proteins and vitamins, in particular there are vitamins A and E, the latter being a powerful natural antioxidant that helps regenerate the skin. Together, these substances stimulate the production of fibroblasts, which in turn induce an increased production of collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Collagen and hyaluronic acid: skin’s best friends
These two substances are normally produced by the skin, but over time their production degrades and the skin becomes thinner and duller. The mix of active ingredients has a powerful moisturising effect.
Snail slime: how this natural ingredient can fade wrinkles and skin blemishes, signs of ageing
Using a daily snail slime moisturiser means gradually but visibly smoothing out the features by eliminating small wrinkles, e.g. wrinkles around the eyes and at the sides of the lips. These are the first to appear, but also the most difficult to eradicate and give the face a tired and sad look.
Snail slime contains glycolic acid
The snail slime moisturiser also contains glycolic acid, which helps to lighten skin blemishes, especially those related to careless exposure to the sun and the passage of time.
Day cream: in various formats also with UV filter to protect the skin from solar radiation
Various formats are available on the market, e.g. there are day creams, enriched with a UV filter, which are light and therefore also perfect as a make-up base, perfect for use in the morning and usually called day creams.
Night cream: deep regenerating action for the skin during the hours of rest
There are also night creams whose aim is to make use of the hours of rest at night for a real regenerating action that helps to relax the features and give the skin a glow and tone. The night cream usually has a higher concentration of active ingredients and has an enhanced effect, which is why it is good to have several moisturising products.
Night cream or serum? Read carefully
The night cream can be replaced by the serum, which has a very concentrated formulation and a liquid or semi-liquid texture. Just a few drops are enough to have amazing effects. The serum is recommended to replace the night cream because it has a high percentage of active ingredients and is able to take advantage of the hours of rest in which the microcirculation is reactivated to regenerate the skin in depth.
