What Does Collagen Do?

Can skincare products actually boost your collagen levels? Collagen, which keeps our skin looking young, can be enhanced or boosted by skincare products that contain retinoids. The concentrations required generally mean that these will be prescription products.

Careful With Your Eyelids

Eyelids can easily become irritated, so moisturizing at bed time can protect them. This diminishes water loss which can cause cracking of the skin.

Options for Fighting Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Concerned about wrinkles? There are a number of options for fine lines and wrinkles. First protect yourself from further sun exposure. Medical treatments include creams containing retinoids, chemical peels or lasers. Cosmeceuticals may also help if they contain vitamin or botanical antioxidants or if they use substances that can influence cell regulation such as growth factors and molecules called peptides.

Cream or Lotion?

If you're over the age of 50 or work outside, you may find yourself with dry and itchy skin. Choose a moisturizing cream rather than lotion to replenish your skin's moisture levels and reduce the itch.

Does Your Hair Style Date You?

Feel like you're 'looking your age'? Try an updated hair style or get your eye brows tweezed. Both of these can take years off your looks and make you feel better to boot!

Help to Reverse Wrinkles from Sun Damage

Coenzyme Q 10 can help you reduce your wrinkles. Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q 10) is synthesized in all cells. It is antioxidant. It can reduce cell damage from Ultraviolet A. It has been shown to reverse wrinkles of the skin caused by sun damage.

Fighting Crow's Feet

Hoping to avoid crow's feet? You can minimize the likelihood of developing wrinkles around your eyes by applying sunscreen (but remember, not too close to the eye) and wearing protective eyewear, such as wraparound sunglasses. Some wrinkles are produced by repeated movement of the skin.

Getting Rid of Wrinkles

Can any skin care products actually get rid of wrinkles? Unfortunately, no. Moisturizers can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but they won't make them go away. Embrace those laugh lines!
