    Anti-Aging Skin Care Products - What to Look For

    We all want to be at our best, to look as beautiful and healthy on the outside as we feel on the inside. But with so many anti-aging skincare products on the market, how do you know which to choose.

    Effective anti-aging skin care products are designed to:

    • Clean and purify skin to promote a fresh, radiant glow
    • Stimulate new cell growth
    • Reinforce elasticity
    • Leave your face, neck and décolletagé smooth and soft

    What is Skin Aging?

    It is believed that the aging of human skin occurs through two distinct processes: intrinsic (inner) aging and extrinsic (outer) aging. Intrinsic aging is a natural process caused by unavoidable tissue degeneration. In intrinsic aging, skin loses collagen and hydration, and the elasticity of the skin’s fiber network degenerates, leaving skin less able to “bounce back.” Extrinsic aging is the result of the environmental factors to which we expose our skin. A factor that causes much of the extrinsic aging process is ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. When we expose our face, hands and other body parts to UV rays, it doesn’t take long before we start to see the signs of photodamage, which can include fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation (sun spots).

    The Solution: Effective Anti-Aging Skin Care Products

    Fortunately, there are anti-aging skin care products available that can help to restore your skin to a more youthful, vibrant state.

    Anti aging skin care involves these essential steps:

    • Cleanse and refresh
    • Stimulate for increased circulation
    • Nourish with essential nutrients
    • Hydrate for a dewy glow
    • Protect against sun damage

    In addition to cleaning your skin with a cleanser that’s formulated to address the needs of your personal skin type, it’s important to use a cream or serum that’s designed to stimulate tissue repair and promote the production of new collagen. Ingredients such as collagen builders can penetrate deeply to encourage cellular repair and, ultimately, reverse some of the signs of aging. You must also feed your skin with ingredients that nourish. This includes antioxidants as well as essential vitamins and nutrients that come in lotions, creams and serums. An intensive moisturizer that locks in hydration 24x7 is an essential anti aging skin care product that can promote a healthy, more glowing complexion. Also, protect your skin from any future environmental damage. This is particularly important for your face and neck. Sunscreens with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 are critical for shielding these sensitive body parts from the sun’s harmful rays.

    We at Kate Somerville Skin Care believe that the right anti-aging skin care products can play a major role in transforming your entire attitude, giving you the poise you need to “take on the world.” We know that with regular use, quality anti-aging skin care products can give you more confidence, making you excited—even giddy—to show your reborn complexion to the world!
