The change of seasons can wreck havoc on your skin by going from cold weather into the heat and humidity. Spring is the perfect time to examine your skin care routine and change things up. Skin may be dry and flaky in the Winter or need brightening and radiance in the Spring.Your beauty regimen at-home needs to change as your skin ages. So if you want to turn back the clock by diminishing wrinkles and age spot appearance, you need to use facial moisturizers, eye cream and skin brighteners designed and clinically tested to improve skin's beauty.
To keep skin looking youthful and radiant, look for skin care products that are formulated with many natural ingredients and vitamins that have been clinically tested for optimal benefits.
The change of seasons and exposure to the sun and elements can damage skin. That is why the premium skin care cream, serums and lotions use a combination of anti-oxidants and vitamins to combat the visible signs of aging.
Antioxidants are a substance that hunts free radicals, the unstable unpredictable particles that are known to damage cells. Free radicals are a cause in producing sun damage and even skin cancers. Free radicals may arise with sun exposure, smoking and alcohol, all of which deplete antioxidants in the skin. The good news is these antioxidants can be replenished.
Look for vitamins in anti-aging skin care products to promote youthful and radiant skin. Vitamins A, C and E are among the time tested ingredients that are important for the enhancement of skin's beauty.
Vitamin A: UV radiation leads to vitamin A deficiencies in the skin, replenishing skin care with Vitamin A Is important for skin health.
Vitamin C: Also known as ascorbic acid is a very potent antioxidant. Studies have shown large amounts of vitamin C reduced skin swelling and protect against sunlight. Vitamin C is thought to promote collagen production.
Vitamin E: Studies indicate topical forms of vitamin E have decreased skin roughness, length of facial lines, and wrinkle depth.
Clinical studies show that antioxidants including vitamins C and E help to fight off free radicals found in UV radiation and improve your sunscreen's ability to do the same.
So what are the essential products everyone must own to enhance and care for facial skin?
Moisturizers - help prevent dryness, bruising, and injury to the skin. Always apply a moisturizer while the skin is still damp both morning and night..
Under-Eye Creams - many people question the need for a special cream just for the eye area. Why can't you simply apply your facial cream there too? The reason is the skin under the eyes is very thin and doesn't produce enough protective oils to keep the skin soft and supple. Eye creams typically work in one of two ways:
- constricting blood vessels temporarily to prevent the build-up of fluids
- Helping to firm skin with an invisible film
Never rub the eyes area, as this may cause more wrinkles to form. Do apply eye products with a light tapping motion until the eye cream is absorbed.
Brightening Serum - a skin brightening formula helps to wake up dull, blotchy skin, reducing the appearance of age spots, freckles and blotches. Ingredients such as Alpha-Arbutine, Salicylic Acid, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, and Saxifraga Sarmentosa Extract used in combination help to reduce sun damage and promote a brightening/whitening effect on skin.
Always read the product label and know what you are applying to your skin. Have added assurance with products that are either clinically tested, or have clinically tested ingredients. Premium skin care companies will offer 100% satisfaction with a money back guarantee. Review site like newyorkderminstitute.org help to review and guide consumers.
