Ageing skin is part of growing old, but you can still keep your skin glowing and healthy
Eyes are where the “smile starts” and the assessments of your looks are quickly evaluated according to them. This is why eyes are so important. Sadly, they are still one of the facial features that are mostly neglected and quickly associated with ageing skin.
3 Options for “Super Eyes”
- Eyeluronic Gel – particularly for the allergy prone, can be used on the eye lids. It softens and plumps lines and wrinkles.
- Corrective Eye Complex– contains Stem Cells and Peptides for skin elasticity.
- CircleLight – contains Tetra Peptides and Oligopeptides for dark circles under the eyes.
Recommended Brightening Cleansing Routine for A.M. and P.M. and ageing skin
- Brightening Cleanser
- Brightening Toner
- DermaBright Mandelic Acid
This cleanse involves the neck and décolleté and is a great influence on ageing skin. You should first cleanse with Brightening Cleanser. Then add 2 drops DermaBright to your final cleanse and leave on for 5 minutes. Use DermaPolish enzyme exfoliant for the added removal of redundant cells. This should be left on for 5 minutes or more as required, as it is an essential for hyper-pigmented skin.
Brightening Toner (with raspberry extract) is an anti- inflammatory and also prepares the skin by removing residue which facilitates the penetration and absorption of active ingredients in the products. This is an important step in skin care and also forms part of treating ageing skin.
Recommended serum skin care routine for A.M. and P.M. and ageing skin
- Vitamin C Serum
- ACC Hyaluronic Gel
- ACC Copper Peptide
- Dermal Repair Serum
- Vitanol A Serum
Apply serums – an example either or both Vitamin C Serum then apply our ACC Hyaluronic Gel over the application. You should rub this in well. This step is important in all skin care routines for maximising penetration and treatment of ageing skin.
An alternative to serums is DeCeleRate power lifting- peptides. You should apply this product either in the a.m. or p.m. for firming of the skin. You could also alternate with PowerDerm – stem cells, which help to regenerate the fibroblasts.
For firmer skin you should use the Collagen Conformer Gel treatment programme with tetrapeptides and soy protein.
Collagen Conformer accelerates the restructuring of the dermis with an immediate tightening “effect” being clearly visible on application. This product provides specialised care for the mature skin under the eyes, around the neck and on the décolleté.
Your skin care routine should include some of the options we have listed below for beautiful neck skin care and ageing skin.
DeCeleRate contains the following well documented ingredients:
Argireline Acetyl Hexapeptide – 8:
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 helps relax muscle contractions with regular application. It does not paralyse muscles, but only reduces muscle contractions. In testing, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 reduced wrinkle depth by 27% after 30 days of daily use. Long-term and regular use of this active ingredient produces benefits which includes lines becoming shallower and less pronounced over time.
Matrixyl ® Oligopeptide:
Researchers have found that Palmitoyl Oligopeptides, when added to a culture of fibroblasts (key skin cells), stimulates collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycan production. These are the key components to healthy looking, moisturised skin with Vitamin E, an antioxidant, helping to combat free radical damage.
DermaFix’s Omega Å Tissue Oiland Argan Oil:
They includeanti-oxidants which mop up free radicals. They should be used before the application of sunscreens for additional protection when exposed to UVA/UVB.
For extra moisture for the very dry skin, the following may be options to include into your routine as alternatives to routine:
- Argan Oil(pure EcoCert) or Omega Tissue Oil
- Vitamin Therapy Masque Reformulated – a leave on treatment
- Skin ResQ – enough to treat neck, décolleté and hands
Evaluate every 28 days for improvement.
