Usually, with age, after 30-35 years, when the level of estrogen in the body decreases, the skin begins to fade. Its tone decreases, the number of wrinkles increases. However, the skin can lose its elasticity much earlier. The reasons for this are: exhaustion of the nervous system, hormonal disorders, improper diet and appearance care, as well as the use of cosmetics that do not meet your age criterion.
To restore elasticity to the skin, you need to know and follow some rules. Get away from hot baths. This water dries out the skin. It becomes rough and thinner. Better go to contrast showers. Buy milk and various body oils that nourish and moisturize your skin. Avocado oil mixed with a few drops of rosemary is an excellent tonic and skin elasticity enhancer. Exfoliating soaps, prolonged sun exposure, poor hydration and excessive make-up also have an adverse effect on skin elasticity.
Proper nutrition is also important in the fight against aging skin. Eliminate coffee from your diet. Drink only clean water. The menu should be dominated by fruits, vegetables, dairy products, various cereals and herbs. It is very important to take multivitamins, especially vitamin C, which is responsible for the elasticity of the skin.
Stop smoking. Nicotine constricts small blood vessels, which inevitably leads to a lack of oxygen and essential nutrients in the skin. As a result, it becomes lifeless and dull. In addition, regular smoking leads to the formation of wrinkles around the lips, and squinting from smoke leads to the formation of wrinkles around the eyes.
Face-aerobics is an effective, but, unfortunately, little-used means for restoring skin elasticity among women. These are easy and simple exercises that can be done both at home, at work, and while driving. Regularly carrying out such exercises allows the skin to regain its previous elasticity.
Masks with an astringent effect are also considered useful for the skin. With their constant use, the face is visibly fresher, and the skin becomes smoother. Olive oil is widely known for its medicinal properties. Substitute it for your daily cream, and after a while you will notice an obvious difference.
Prepare a mask from 1 tbsp. spoons of oatmeal, honey and milk. Apply the product to the face with light strokes along the massage lines.
Gelatin helps to restore elasticity to the skin. Pour 15 g of gelatin with a glass of water and add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and glycerin to the mixture. Apply the resulting mass on your face for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
An excellent result is achieved by a mask of 1 yolk mixed with 1 teaspoon of honey and vegetable oil (almond, apricot, peach, castor). Bring the mixture to a creamy mass and leave on the face for 15 minutes.
And, of course, do not use products that are not age appropriate for your skin care products.
