Natural Skin Care to Minimizing Wrinkles Around the Mouth
Unfortunately, Our Skin Deteriorates As We Age
Skin wrinkling, facial wrinkles, and wrinkles around mouth are all due to aging. However, prevention is the key to, at least, minimizing wrinkles. Take care to keep exposure of the skin to the sun at a minimum. The sun’s UVA and UVB rays are critical to the skin’s condition.
Normal skin has an epidermis with a smooth cornified, or an outer layer, that acts as a barrier to environmental injury and entry of too much water. A normal skin means components such as collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycan (GAG) are all in abundance. Collagen provides skin firmness; elastin supplies skin elasticity and rebound; and GAG keeps the skin hydrated.
What Really Causes Wrinkles Around the Mouth?
It’s a multi-factor process of intrinsic and extrinsic aging. Intrinsic aging is the natural aging process that takes place over the years. After the age of 20, one percent less collagen and less elastin production is produced every year. Thus, the skin becomes thinner and more fragile with age. The functioning of the sweat and oil glands is also diminished.
Extrinsic aging is the result of sun damage and from other factors like cigarette smoke and exposure to pollution. These changes give the skin the appearance of roughness, uneven tone, brown patches, and deep wrinkles.
Are There Natural Ingredients That Can Reverse the Intrinsic Aging Process?
Active Manuka Honey – nature’s product from bees that feed on the Manuka bush from the tea tree plant found in New Zealand and Australia. Manuka honey is considered medicinal that naturally destroys common skin bacteria. It is also fights skin infection, speeds up healing of wounds, acts as an antioxidant, and safe for long term use.
Lanolin – moisturizes the skin by creating a barrier that locks in the skin’s moisture and prevents water from easily evaporating. Prevents the development of flaky skin in sensitive areas like elbows, knees, and feet.
Sheep Placenta Extract – it helps in improving the skin’s elasticity and nourishes the skin. Ovine Placental Extract is a unique source of bio-stimulants easily absorbed by skin for cell renewal.
Tocopheryl Acetate – promotes antioxidant activity on the skin. Protects the skin from damage by free radicals and UV rays. Has anti-aging, natural moisturizing properties, and contains anti-inflammatory properties for faster wound healing.
Retinyl Palmitate – a gentler and milder option for Vitamin A. It has the positive effects in rejuvenating saggy and dry aging skin.
