When it comes to anti aging skin care, Los Angeles women naturally tend to focus most of their attention on their faces. In fact, in 2008 it was reported that 97% (98% in 2006) of female anti aging beauty care purchases are for facial skin care products. But what about the rest of you? Skin you reveal on your hands, chest and legs can give away your age if you’re not careful — no matter how much attention you give to your face. Areas that receive the most incidental UV exposure, like the hands and the décolletage, are very sensitive to the aging process. So when it comes to mighty anti aging skin care in Los Angeles, love the skin you’re in.
UPDATE: In 2000, one of the great scientific achievements occurred when the sequencing of the human genome revealed the entire genetic blueprint. That discovery led cutting edge skin care Beauty Scientists to explore how skin-related genes function and, more importantly, respond to aging and environmental stress at the molecular level. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Genome_Project
Most Los Angeles folks probably know that stress actually causes a physiological reaction in your body that results in the production of cortisol, known by scientists as ‘the stress hormone.’ Cortisol causes inflammation in the organs of your body, including the skin. That’s right. It’s not a typo. Your skin is an organ! And just like other organs, it can become inflamed. The result? Inflamed pores clog more easily. Inflamed collagen can result in wrinkles. Other signs of skin inflammation include itchiness, dryness and acne. The fact of the matter is that Los Angeles men and women wear their stress on their skin. The question is, what can be done about it?
Los Angeles residents: address your stress. Don’t ignore it!
Learn to identify feelings associated with stress so you can self-soothe through coping strategies such as deep breathing, exercising, meditation or yoga. Carve out time for yourself to minimize tension. Relax in a luxurious bath or shower. Get a massage at a plush Los Angeles day spa. Unclench your jaw. And, of course, take care of your skin—keep it hydrated by moisturizing morning and night. Remember, to get maximum benefits from your moisturizer, apply it to damp skin.
What are peptides and do they matter? Scientifically speaking, peptides are tiny fragments of protein molecules: short chains of amino acids that naturally occur in the skin. Practically speaking, peptides are a growing trend in anti aging skin care! What do peptides do? Peptides promote the natural production of collagen and elastin, both of which plump the skin and give it elasticity. And both of which decline as we age. In skin care products, mighty peptides can work together with glycerin to enhance the stratum corneum to increase hydration which in turn, helps with the natural production of collagen. Not surprisingly, the use of peptides in mighty commercial products sold in California has significantly risen in recent years. Another peptide getting its fair share of attention is pal-KT. Expect to see more from peptides in the future.
Skin tone actually plays a role in how old—or young—you look. How do we know that? Notable Scientists used digital photos of real women to create 3D images of faces with a variety of skin tone patterns. These successful scientists removed all other age-defining features such as facial furrows, lines and wrinkles. Then, over 400 subjects were asked to view the faces, guess the age, and rate them for how healthy they looked and how attractive they appeared. The faces with the most even skin tone, or most uniform color distribution, were not only judged to be younger but they also received significantly higher ratings for attractiveness and looking healthy. So if you are a Manhattan Beach man or woman with younger-looking skin on your mind, skin tone should be too.
As you age, your skin does, as well. Not exactly rocket science. Or is it? Every time your skin is exposed to a change in its environment (for example, you scrape it, go out on a sunny day in Los Angeles or even apply moisturizer), the cells in your skin respond by turning on and turning off thousands of different genes at the same time. Using scientific advances that have recently emerged from the Human Genome Project, skin scientists are beginning to gain a deeper understanding of the genes involved in the skin aging process. Meet the gene chip. No bigger than the size of your thumbnail, the gene chip can measure the signals sent out by thousands of genes at a time. Using gene chips, skin scientists are in the process of identifying the genes that play a role in maintaining your skin, as well as how the signals or messages sent out by genes change as your skin begins to age.
Scientists watch and learn. By comparing the genetic composition of the skin of younger and older women, scientists have observed the ups and downs of genes related to inflammation, pigmentation, collagen breakdown, hydration, antioxidant response and lipid synthesis over time. The benefits for Los Angeles residents: Ingredients for anti aging. Scientists have determined that a strong moisture barrier in the top layer of your skin is key for maximum inner skin performance and have identified (and are continuing to identify) ingredients that hydrate to improve skin’s appearance.
