How to Take Care of Your Skin While Anti-Aging
In recent years, the anti-aging skin care industry has experienced explosive growth, with hundreds of new products being brought to the market on what seems like a near-daily basis. A condition known as “skin care overload” has arisen as a result of this. With the endless amount of substances that we are taught are required for anti-aging, many have gotten overwhelmed and perplexed. Because of the high cost and lengthy process needed, it has become impossible to obtain and use even a portion of these components. We are forced to purchase numerous products every month and pile them on top of one another in order to achieve the best results for our skin. However, when we stock our medicine cabinets with creams and serums, we are confronted with the daily questions of which ones to use, which ones are safe to use, and which ones are effective.
It has been long overdue for the different categories of anti-aging products, as well as the anti-aging components themselves, to be organized and classified in order to facilitate the development of a complete anti-aging strategy.. First and foremost, there are several characteristics of skin aging, and individuals will exhibit one or more of these characteristics throughout time, albeit they may differ in the characteristics of skin aging that they experience. For example, some persons acquire sagging or laxity of the skin as a result of hereditary causes, despite the fact that they may have had little or no sun exposure. Others may have sun spots on their skin but show no signs of sagging or wrinkles. Each clinical characteristic of skin aging may be graded independently on a 4-point scale (mild, moderate, advanced, severe) using the categorization method described below, which has been verified. It is as follows:
Skin Aging is classified into three categories: laxity, sagging, and wrinkles (Sagging)
Brown discolorations can be seen.
Solar elastosis is a condition that occurs when the sun is exposed to the air (Yellowing)
Texture that is not regular
Growths that are out of the ordinary (keratoses).
Skin aging is classified using a severity scale, as previously noted (0=None, 1=Mild, 2=Moderate, 3=Advanced, and 4=Severe), which allows researchers and users to score each unique person’s skin aging according to feature and severity. This scale, which has been published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, has been demonstrated to be quite effective in the testing of anti-aging therapies. 1 Older scales tended to group similar characteristics together in broad categories, which became less useful as treatments grew more focused in their targeting of particular elements of skin aging, such as anti-pigmentation, anti-redness, and anti-wrinkle. Through use of the already available anti-aging scale, our anti-aging solutions may be statistically evaluated to establish which specific categories of skin aging they cure and their effectiveness in each area. Moreover, it enables us to tailor our anti-aging regimen to meet our specific requirements, and to collect or group the most effective components from each area in order to cover all categories of anti-aging products in an organized fashion, as described above.
The next difficulty was to categorize the variety of anti-aging substances available on the market based on the characteristics of skin aging that they targeted or addressed, rather than the chemicals themselves. After that, I devised a classification structure for the areas of anti-aging that have been targeted by the components that have developed in the last decade:
Inhibition of wrinkles – DNA Defense – Barrier Strengthening
Anti-Redness – Cellular Rejuvenation – Emollient/Moisturizer (optional).
Damage Reversal – Reduction of Brown Discoloration – Pro-Skin Thickness is a term used to describe the thickness of the skin.
Anti-Oxidants – Repairing the Signs of Aging – Retexturize the area
This classification method helps us understand why individuals have gotten so overwhelmed and why they have amassed shopping bags full of skin treatments in order to fulfill their requirements! Nonetheless, because anti-aging substances have evolved that target each of these categories, it would be preferable to combine the finest components from each area in a single daily routine in order to get the best results in treating skin aging and aging.
Although each individual may have a different requirement for whatever category of anti-aging products they require the most, it is still preferable for all categories to be covered by an anti-aging regimen in order to prevent and reverse all symptoms of skin aging. It is critical to get familiar with the substances that fall into each area so that you may include many of each group into your skin regimen, or seek for a product that covers the various categories of anti-aging in a rational manner, into your skin routine. The following are examples of key active ingredients that have been shown to produce results in each category of anti-aging: peptides for anti-wrinkles, plant-derived polyphenols and bisabolol for anti-redness, amino acids for anti-brown discolorations, vitamins C and E, and ferulic acid for anti-oxidant, DNA repair molecules such as aceyl tyrosine and proline for DNA defense, resveratrol for cellular restore, bark
Overall, the field of anti-aging now has validated classification systems for the various categories of skin aging and for the plethora of anti-aging ingredients, allowing us to assess and determine which anti-aging actives we want in our medicine cabinet while also ensuring that we cover all of the various categories of anti-aging in our daily routine. With this scientific foundation, we can now intelligently evaluate anti-aging products for their capacity to completely cover all of the many categories of skin aging as well as contain all of the numerous categories of anti-aging chemicals that are now accessible.. Finally, these comprehensive, validated classification and grading scales provide a framework for solving the anti-aging conundrum by establishing a system for categorizing skin aging and classifying anti-aging actives to ensure that you are meeting all of your skin’s anti-aging requirements in a systematic manner.
