This is your aging intervention...You’re young. Your skin is as wrinkle-free as Ron Burgundy’s suit. The idea of anti-aging skin care isn’t even on your radar. But we’re here to tell you, age happens. Like it or not. Ignore your skin, and you’re on the fast train to trout mouth. If idle hands are the devil’s workshop, an idle face is the devil’s doodle pad. And he’s sharpening his pencil as you read this.So what’s the game plan for stopping the first signs of aging? Read on, morning glory.
These are the super-heroes of skin care, the valiant agents that protect cells from damage caused by unstable, reactive molecules known as free radicals. Free radicals occur as a result of oxidative stress on the body from exposure to things like environmental pollutants, UV radiation and smoking. These disruptors attach to collagen, elastin and sometimes DNA, and lead to structural breakdown. The damage shows up as wrinkles, sagging skin, dark circles, dull skin, dryness; the signposts of aging. And it starts sooner than you think.It’s impossible to avoid oxidative stress on the skin, but combatting it with antioxidant skin care is very doable. There are plenty of products touting free-radical fighting actives, but some of the most potent and proven are green tea extract, vitamins A, C and E, caffeine, grape seed oil, and algae, all of which can be found in Vivant’s formulations. At the top of your must-have list: Spin Trap Antioxidant Serum. Make it part of your daily ritual to give your skin a protective shield against age-accelerating stressors.
Cell turnover is the key to healthy, youthful glowing skin. As we age, cell turnover naturally slows and skin starts to dull, wrinkles form, and the bloom, as they say, is off. So it’s imperitive to help the cell turnover process along. The combination of Vitamin A (retinol) and AHAs (alpha hydroxyl acids) give skin a serious advantage in this regard. They are the powerhouse duo of anti-aging, working together to slough of dead skin cells, boost collagen production, restore elasticity, lighten dark spots, brighten skin tone, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.In your twenties, exfoliate to unclog pores and prevent breakouts. In your thirties, exfoliate to help stimulate collagen production and stave off the first fine lines and reverse photoaging. In your forties and beyond, exfoliate to help reduce age spots, thicken and firm skin, and reinvigorate your healthy, youthful glow. There’s something for every skin here.
You can do a lot on your own, but to really keep the signs of aging at bay, you need the help of a professional. A regular facial is indispensable. The pros have products and knowledge the average consumer doesn’t, so you’ll get higher-level results tailored to your specific needs. A professional facial is like a mini-facelift on the regular. Facial massage reduces wrinkle-inducing muscle tension and increases collagen-stimulating blood flow. You can give yourself a facial massage as a booster anytime, but the added value of the professional visit can’t be overestimated.
