Different Strokes For Different Skin Aging Problems

Women, and even men, only realize that their skin is aging when they see fine lines and wrinkles propping up in their eyes, foreheads, mouths and cheeks. By the time these lines appear, it can become harder to restore the youthfulness of the skin. Thus, it is really advisable that when you reach the age of 30, you should already be on the lookout for subtle signs of maturing skin, which includes dull and dry skin, enlarged pores, patchy skin tone and even the appearance of blemishes, age spots and freckles.

The aging process is something inevitable. Even Hollywood celebrities will have to face the fact that their face and skin will eventually reveal their true age. However, you should not accept the signs of tired and aging skin by just sitting down. There are many treatments and products that can help restore your youthful skin and delay the maturing of the skin for several years.

Read on and discover what types of treatments and products are ideal for specific problems related to aging skin.

Uneven or Patchy Skin Tone

Discoloration and uneven skin tone are primarily caused by exposure to sunlight. The first step in battling this problem is by using sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays coming from the sun and very bright lighting systems. Make sure that you put on sunscreen every time you go out during the day.

An effective, but quite pricey, treatment for skin discoloration is chemical peeling, which helps bring out a more even skin tone. In order to see results, however, you need to undergo several sessions of chemical peels. An alternative method of bringing a rosy white glow and a perfectly even skin tone is the natural collagen treatment, which helps delay skin aging by fighting free radicals and renewing damaged cells.

More Visible Pores

A facial scrub with gentle beads is your fist step in sloughing away dirt and grime, which are often lodged in your pores. The dirt and dead skin cells deposited inside your pores are the ones that are making it bigger and more visible. Thus, you need to ensure that you use a facial cleanser with deep cleaning power at least three times a week.

Facials and application of botanical masks are treatments that can be used to help make your pores smaller and less visible. The products used in such treatments usually contain glycolic or retinoic acid, which are vital in clearing blocked pores.

Dull And Drying Skin

Moisturizers and scrubs are what you need to get rid of dead and old skin cells and also to reveal a softer and glowing skin. Some people find that making their own moisturizers and scrubs with ingredients that are found in their cupboards, such as oats and honey, can be effective in dealing with such problems.

Flaccid Skin

The best treatment for sagging skin is a facelift. This will ensure that the skin in your face, neck, eyes, and cheeks are not drooping and loose. However, you can be sure that this surgical treatment will put a dent in your budget.

Emergence of Fine Lines And Wrinkles

Botox is the first thing that enters many people's mind whenever wrinkles and fine lines are discussed. This treatment is the fastest way to get rid of those unsightly lines on your face. Aside from being expensive, however, the effects of botox do not last. More often than not, you need to go back to your dermatologist after several months to get another round of injections.

If you do not have money or a high threshold for pain, you can opt to look for anti-aging products and creams available on the market. Although the results of using such creams are not instantaneous like Botox, you will see visible changes in your face and skin after a few days of regular use.
