Aging is a natural process as well as birth, childhood and young adulthood. Our skin age occurs as a result of the characteristics of the genetic inheritance we inherit from our parents and the stress-creating factors we are exposed to, such as sunlight, smoking, air pollution, unhealthy eating habits, insomnia, vitamin and mineral deficiencies. The signs of aging generally begin with fine lines around the eyes after the age of 25, and as age progresses, it manifests itself as fine wrinkles and stains on the neck and hands.
From the Department of Dermatology at Yeni Yüzyıl University Gaziosmanpaşa Hospital, Dr. Instructor Member of. Emre Araz told what should be known about 'anti-aging care recommendations'.
Today, it is possible to fight against skin aging, thanks to the developments in the field of aesthetic dermatology, advanced technology and anti-aging products.
Although we cannot change our genetic heritage, it is possible to be least affected by environmental factors. For example, stay away from white flour, sugary, processed foods that cause oxidative stress; We can start to protect our skin with balanced and fresh fruit and vegetable meals. A good night's sleep is also of great importance for the regeneration and refreshment of our skin. Because sleep provides the secretion of growth hormone. Growth hormone increases cell renewal and collagen production. In addition, the skin blood circulation should be supported with regular exercise for 30 minutes daily.
Your daily skincare routine has a significant impact on the signs of aging in your skin. The washing product that you will purchase in consultation with your dermatologist, which cleanses the skin without drying it, should always be the first step of your skin care routine. Afterwards, you should prepare for the day by moisturizing with an intense moisturizing cream. To protect your skin from harmful sun rays, make sure the moisturizer you use contains SPF (sun protection factor) or include your SPF 50 sunscreen lotion in your morning routine.
After removing your evening make-up, start using anti-aging night creams containing retinoic acid. With regular use, retinoic acid tightens the pores, helps to heal acne and white-colored lumps without leaving a trace, reduces fine lines, increases collagen production, lightens the color of brown spots and freckles, if any, and improves skin texture. Vitamin C, on the other hand, protects the skin from external factors that cause color unevenness and wrinkles on the skin. Retinoic acid and vitamin C can irritate your skin at first. For this reason, it would be appropriate to alternately use a pea-sized amount of retinoic acid serum and a vitamin C product before moisturizing at night. You can add creams containing CoenzymeQ10, hyaluronic acid and peptide alternately in small amounts to your nighttime moisturizer routine.
You can apply it by massaging for 1-2 minutes once a week with superficial peelings (glycolic acid, salicylic acid) in the concentration appropriate for you, by consulting your dermatologist. Get medical skin care once a month. Gentle cleaning of the pores under steam and light peeling applications that can be applied afterwards, a simple care measure and even a collagen mask can restructure the damage that may occur on your skin with age. With this regular care, anti-aging creams and ingredients to be used at home become more absorbable. With the decreasing hyaluronic acid in the skin over time, the water retention of the tissue decreases. Lack of moisture can cause the skin to wrinkle more easily, color unevenness, and vein tissue disorders. At this point, it will be beneficial for you to include moisture vaccine and hyaluronic acid formulas, which we know as youth vaccines, spread under the skin like a very fine mesh, microneedle radiofrequency applications that can be used in combination with prp, and antioxidant cocktails in your annual skin care routine.
In addition to hyaluronic acid and other device applications for facial fat, thinning skin, prominent wrinkles, sunspots that are increasingly lost towards the age of 50s, fractional lasers that renew the skin, focus ultrasound and their combinations have great power in refreshing and rejuvenating your skin.
