Skin aging is a natural process, however, it is difficult to accept it. Its course is determined by both genetic, hormonal and environmental factors. Fortunately, the state of mature skin can be improved by a proper care.
The changes in the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissues correlated with our age, because biological activity of the cells is reduced. Regenerative processes are slowing down, besides, an uneven melanin secretion contributes to the formation of pigmentation spots. The list of possible changes is even longer. As the time goes by, the activity of collagen and elastin fibres is getting worse. Capillaries become more and more fragile, and the epidermis - thinner and rough. Elasticity of the skin is reduced, while its sensitivity is growing.
This leads to the formation of furrows and wrinkles. At the same time the chin line becomes wider, and the face takes the shape of an inverted letter V. And, as its better to prevent changes, rather than try to reverse them – the mature skin should be well taken care of. Products with biologically active substances, dedicated to specific skin problems can be very helpful here.
Cosmetic Laboratory FLOSLEK has developed a technologically advanced line of anti-wrinkle creams Oils&Peptides. They are rich in active ingredients acting in synergy, that is why they moisturise, soften and regenerate the skin. The composition contains a rejuvenating complex of 7 natural oils (argan, macadamia, avocado, coconut, linseed, sunflower and olive oil) which nourishes and regenerates skin cells, moisturizes, reduces wrinkles and laughter lines and improves skin density, tone and its elasticity. Hyaluronic acid improves skin firmness and prevents excessive water loss. Creams also contain Matrixyl 3000 - a peptide that stimulates collagen production as well as fibroblasts- cells of the dermis. As a result, it has anti-wrinkles properties and improves the tone and elasticity of the skin.
In mature skin care household remedies should also be useful. In the fight against wrinkles fruits that we usually have on hand are also handful. It is very easy to prepare an apple mask. To a grated, small apple add a tablespoon of potato starch or cornflour. Thus prepared mask should be applied on face immediately. After 20 minutes, the mask should be washed off using warm water first and then the cold one. Another great way is to make a mask with pomegranate juice. Mix it with oat flakes and olive oil. After 15-20 minutes, wash off with water.
