The Skin's Ageing Process and The Top Five
 
Anti-Ageing Ingredients!

Causes of Aging Skin
A number of factors contribute to our apparent age throughout our lives. Genetic inheritance is important, as is the way our skin has been treated throughout our lifetime. Young, radiant skin has a healthy look that, as we get older, begins to fade as the skin loses its ability to retain moisture. The network of Collagen and elastin that support the skin degrade. The rate at which our skin sheds old cells slows down. The production of the natural pigment melanin can become uneven. The natural substances, which help the skin retain moisture, are reduced, causing it to become drier. The skin thus becomes drier, loses elasticity and begins to show the effects of constant exposure to the environment.

Some of the skin changes that accompany aging are natural, like the genes we inherit. This is known as the “intrinsic aging” process. Damage caused by environmental factors, such as exposure to UV, pollution, dehydration, poor diet, stress, repetitive facial expressions, gravity and smoking are known collectively as “extrinsic aging” process. All these changes result in a range of visible signs of aging that include lines and wrinkles, uneven texture, uneven tone, a dull appearance, age spots and blotches, photo damage, visible pores and an overall increase in dryness.
The top 5 proven anti ageing ingredients are:
-1.Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA)
-2.Vitamin A
-3.Vitamin C
-4.Vitamin E
-5.Sunscreen (SPF)

Part 1 Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)
For centuries, AHA's have been used to reverse the aging process to promote a more youthful, fresh looking complexion, before their effectiveness was recognized by modern science. Cleopatra used Alpha Hydroxy Acids (Lactic Acid) when she bathed in milk, and was renowned for her beauty and youthful looks! Noble European ladies pampered their bodies with wine baths to have silky smooth and youthful glowing skin!

AHA, also known as Alpha Hydroxy Acid, is a naturally occurring, non-toxic acid found in basic food, fruits and the human body. Following are the natural sources of commonly available alpha hydroxy acids:
-Glycolic acid: Sugar cane
-Lactic acid: Sour milk
-Citric Acid: Lemons and oranges
-Malic acid: ApplesTartaric acid: Grapes

Natural Chemical Exfoliators
The skin is made up of three layers - the epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous (also known as the Hypodermis) layers as seen in the diagram below.

Throughout all stages of life, the top layer of the skin is continually being worn away and replaced by new cell growth. About every 28 days the top layer of the skin needs to be exfoliated - or removed. AHA's work by dissolving the glue that binds skin cells together. These dead cells then simply wash away to reveal fresh new cells giving the appearance of fresher, more youthful looking skin! The higher the percentage of the AHA in a solution, the deeper through the skin's level the AHA's will penetrate and quicker the loosening of the skin cells occur. This helps exfoliate the build up of superficial dead skin cells of the epidermis. At the cellular level, AHA's stimulate the fibroblasts in the dermis to increase the production of collagen and elastin, thus making the ground substance of the dermis thicker. Hyperpigmentation is an increase in melanin which causes dark patches or spots on the skin. AHA's help shed these darkened cells at a faster rate, preparing the new skin for more effective penetration of treatment products that can lighten skin, and decrease melanin production by inhibiting the enzymes responsible for melanin synthesis, resulting in an even skin tone. The overall effect of these actions is to even out the skin texture and tone by reducing the wrinkles, removing the dry, flaky, dead superficial skin layers and improving the color, firmness and elasticity of the skin, providing a more youthful facial complexion at the.
