Cosmetics do not always justify our hopes

Considering the new advertising of cosmetic productson the pages of glossy magazines, listening to the alluring promises brilliant beauties of the commercials on television, we are willy-nilly give in this magic subliminal and begin to really expect from the contents of this magic jar truly is impossible!

Cosmetics do not always justify our hopes

Return of youth, the complete disappearance of wrinkles,finding love, success and all that so convincingly show us the authors of advertising themes, imagination is boundless. And when that does not happen, we were disappointed declare that this cosmetics does not work, and are beginning to look closely for the next "miracle" of the cosmetic industry.

Why not come true hopes? I think the main reasons are only two: First, we are waiting too much makeup on, and secondly, we do not buy the makeup that suits us. On waiting a little longer wonders mentioned above, and because the cosmetics - it's just cosmetics, we should not expect from her magic changes appearance. Yes, it can protect the skin from harmful influences, water it with moisture and smooth out fine wrinkles, even out the color and improve elasticity. But even the most expensive and well-known cosmetics, still not able to return the youth, if age-related changes have gone far. Otherwise, it would go a long way not poor and still beautiful pop diva and screen stars in the risk of plastic surgery in an effort to conceal the traces of time? As they say, time - the best doctor (for resentment and emotional turmoil), but a poor beautician. Yet without makeup we can not do, even if it does not protect the skin from aging, but well-chosen cosmetics is quite capable to delay the appearance of signs of age on your face, slow the aging process and improve skin condition.

In general, to be approached calmly and cosmeticscarefully, and if you find it difficult to determine the type of your skin or her age, just need to find a good beautician and clarify these matters so as not to throw your money is not the wind, buying unnecessary and may even be harmful to your skin means.

Do you know the age of their skin?

If you think that is enough to knowthe age specified in the passport, then sadly mistaken. In most cases, the "passport" age and biological age is not quite the same, and sometimes these differences are quite significant. So, buying a cream and focusing on their, say, 35 years, you run the risk of making a mistake. If the biological age of the skin over a decade, the acquired funds will not be effective for you, but if your skin is younger passport years, the possible negative effects on the skin, overfeed young skin should not be potent substances. Age skin may deviate from the passport and in the other side, and on the 10 and 20 years, and it depends on many factors: diseases, food, climate impact and working conditions, bad habits.

Approximately can determine their biological age by using a small skin test. Count the points if you have in stock:

• wrinkles between the eyebrows - 3 points;
• wrinkles under the eyes - 4 points;
• drooping of the upper eyelid - 4 points;
• bags under the eyes - 4 points;
• «crow's feet" - 4 points;
• clearly pronounced nasolabial folds - 3;
• pigment spots - 5;
• wrinkles around the lips - 5;
• wrinkles on lips - 4;
• a double chin - 4;
• wrinkles on the neck - 5;
• weakening of the muscles of the face oval - 5.
Now we add to the result of 20 points, and obtain the biological age of your skin.

As you know, if you have noabove the aforesaid drawbacks, the skin age corresponds to 20 years, and your face is young and perfect. Regeneration processes in the body are going fast, the skin is quickly restored after stressful situations (sunburn, disturbances in sleep and eating habits), and at this time to clean is sufficient, moisturize and nourish the skin cosmetics manufactured in the plant material.

With 25 years throughout the body have beenslowing down the process of cell reproduction. The skin is no longer updated as quickly, which leads to structural abnormalities in all its layers, the outer layer of the skin thickens and coarsens.

After 30 years, it thickens to 1% each year, andthe inner layer becomes thin and fragile. Metabolism in the skin is broken, that accelerates aging. This process is genetically programmed, therefore, for foreign body shell, since this period, it is necessary to look very carefully. Must apply and day and night creams, masks, lotions. Depending on the type of skin, once a week to clean it with a peeling. The composition of many cosmetic products for this age range include special substances that enhance reproduction cells. Their operating principle is based on a constant gentle exfoliation of old cells from the skin surface. Since about 30 years, you can start to use tools with collagen and elastin, because it is from this age decreases the production of collagen and decreases its ability to accumulate water. At this age, there are fine lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows - often called wrinkles "lion"; drawn nasolabial folds, coming down on the wings of the nose to the corners of the lips; clearly identified facial features in general. Changes complexion, fades inner radiance of the skin, there are bags under the eyes.

And for 40 years the production of collagen stopscompletely. The amount of elastin in the skin and has been steadily declining. Deepen wrinkles, nasolabial folds accented and "crow's feet" - the fine wrinkles around the eyes. All the attention in this period should be focused on the deep layers of the skin.
