An Effective Anti-Aging Treatment Program

Aug 20, 2008
Available to the health conscious consumer are many products on the market that combat the normal aging process. Often these products make great claims about anti-aging.

However, upon closer examination they merely provide cosmetic relief from such things as age spots, wrinkling, sagging of the skin, etc. In other words they are just cosmetic in appearance and simply cover up the challenge of aging. Often this cover-up is accomplished by applying hair dye, concealers, etc.

Therefore, the secret to slowing down the aging process and specifically the aging of the skin is to go the root of the problem rather than just deal with the symptoms. One effective method of going beyond the treatment of the symptoms and addressing the needs of the skin is through diet and an anti-aging skin care treatment product.

Aging Skin

To fully understand the need to be involved with an anti-aging program it is important to understand two critical related issues. Those two key issues include the important role of the skin towards maintaining the health of the body and how the aging process affects the skin.

First of all, not many individuals realize that the human skin does more that cover the other 10 bodily systems that comprise the human body. The skin is an individual's first line of defense against pathogens, the environment, bacteria, etc. In addition, it is through the skins that certain impurities found within the body are expelled. Also, the skin is an integral part of maintaining the body's temperature at 98.6 F.

It stands to reason that if the skin is not pampered and if personal hygiene is not followed there may be serious consequences. Some of those consequences could include clogged pores from various elements in the environment including the skin's own dead skin cells. Ultimately, clogged skin pores could lead to sores on the body and infection.

Also, as the body ages the skin produces less collagen. Collagen is that substance created by the body which helps maintain the suppleness and elasticity of the body's skin. Ultimately, it is the loss of collagen that leads to the wrinkling and sagging of the skin.

Anti-Aging Skin Care Treatment

There is good news, however, to aid the individual who is concerned about maintaining the health of their skin. Some of those suggestion are common sense steps that can be taken and through a threefold anti-aging skin care treatment process.

For example, some common sense tips include limiting one's exposure to the sun. This can be accomplished by wearing protective clothing or limiting the time spent outdoors as well as staying indoors during the peak exposure times of sunlight. That peak time of sunlight is from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. In addition, it is important to apply the right UV protection lotion to the skin when needing to be outdoors.

Another common sense anti-aging technique that can be followed is to exfoliate the skin. This can be accomplished by using a soft bristled brush and lightly scrubbing the skin prior to a shower. This procedure will allow for the dead skin cells to be disturbed and washed away through the showering process. The benefits of the simple technique will help to maintain the opening of the pores of the skin and prevent buildup of oil and other clogging materials.

In addition, the second part of an anti-aging skin treatment program gives attention to one's diet. Specifically, it is important to eat proper nutritious food. This food should be high in fiber so as to effectively help in the elimination of waste products, drinking the right amount of water to aid in flushing the body of contaminants, the appropriate amounts of good fat and reduction in harmful dietary habits. Those negative dietary habits could include excessive amounts of alcohol, use of tobacco and large quantities of sugar.

The final step in the anti-aging treatment program is the use of proper skin care products. These products should be restorative in nature and composed of natural ingredients that have been proven to effectively nurture the skin, promote healthy growth and restore the health of this vital organ of the body.
