Cosmetic Enhancements That May Replace Facial Collagen

Collagen is a protein that is found throughout the human body, in our muscles and tendons, our bones, and in our skin. Simplistically put, it provides structure and strength, acting like a kind of scaffold or framework that holds everything together.

It plays an incredibly important role in terms of replacing dead skin cells, but as we age, our natural production of collagen decreases. Collagen also reduces significantly because of various environmental factors including excessive exposure to UV light. When collagen is reduced it typically results in skin that sags and forms wrinkles and lines. It can also result in the weakening of cartilage in the joints.

Collagen Fillers for Cosmetic Enhancements

The good news is that even though our natural supplies of collagen decrease with age, manmade collagen fillers can be used to removed lines, wrinkles, and even scars from our face, neck and even our hands.

Cosmetic enhancements that replace facial collagen include:

  • Microdermabrasion Also known as the lunchtime peel, microdermabrasion is a cosmetic enhancement that removes dead skin cells from the face and encourages the growth of new healthy cells that are rich in collagen. Microdermabrasion is a quick process that takes only half an hour and will make your facial skin feel rejuvenated and refreshed.
  • Perlane Approved by the FDA, Perlane contains both collagen and hyaluronic acid, another natural component found in the skin. So while the hyaluronic acid helps to improve the elasticity and natural fullness in the skin, the collagen fills out lines and wrinkles, particularly those between the mouth and chin. It also helps to produce new collagen in the skin and can be effective for getting rid of the lines that form between the nose and corners of the mouth.
  • Radiesse A cosmetic enhancement product used to stimulate the production of natural collagen in our bodies, Radiesse is used to help fill out age-related depressions in the face. It can even be used to sculpt the face and reshape the nose! It can also be particularly effective for filling out wrinkles in most cases.

Skin Care Routines to Boost Moisture this Fall

Moisture is your skin’s greatest ally. It always pays to moisturize as much as possible. By doing so, you are naturally boosting the health and appearance of your skin. When the seasons change, savvy women know that they have to make changes to their skin care routine. Let’s take a look at five important habits you should get into to boost the moisture of your skin this fall.

Don’t Neglect to Protect with SPF

While the temperature may drop in the autumn, this doesn’t stop the sun from shining. Many women stop using SPF when the seasons change. Don’t make this critical mistake. Sun damage is still one of the greatest foes that can wreck your great-looking skin.

The New Season Is the Perfect Reason to Change Your Routine

During the summer, you probably moisturize with foaming cleansers and gels as often as possible. It makes sense to do it when it’s hot. You’re losing moisture quickly due to higher air temperatures. In turn, this keeps your body temperature at an elevated rate. As the temps cool down, this strategy is not nearly as effective. Since less oil is a natural occurrence, you’ll want to change-up your routine. A great idea is to use sulfate-free, non-drying cleansers when you first wake up in the morning. When night rolls around you’ll switch to a gentler lotion-based cleanser at night. This cleans your face by gently removing your makeup before you’re ready to settle down for the night.

It’s Always Great to Exfoliate

exfoliate-skin-careProper Exfoliation boosts skin moisture during the Fall. It’s appropriate to exfoliate less during the Summer because your skin is more likely to be sensitive. All bets are off when the weather cools down. This is the best season to minimize dead skin. By removing dry, flaky skin, you are letting your healthier skin shine through. Add exfoliating peels and facial scrubs to your routine to lighten and brighten your face.

I Scream for Eye Cream

The fall is the time of the year when you don’t want to neglect using eye cream. Autumn is notorious for the skin below your eyes to dry out faster than Sonic the Hedgehog. Add eye cream to your regimen to look your absolute best.

Boosting Hydration Stops Dry Skin Frustration

Toners are powerful beauty products that should be used after you clean your face and before you apply your moisturizer. This helps boost their effectiveness.

 

Using these tips, you can say “goodbye” to dry skin forever!
