Being the largest external organ in the body, the skin is exposed to many environmental factors making it vulnerable to early aging. As the skin ages, the production of skin oils decreases as well making the skin less elastic, saggy and wrinkled. Exposure worsens the symptoms of skin aging. It breaks down collagen and elastin fibers which are the skin’s connective tissues. Damaged connective tissues make the skin weak, and the direct result of this is a saggy skin. Habitual factors that damage the skin include smoking as well as repeated facial expressions.
It is the nature of humankind to want to feel good. Everyone desires to be confident and to have the self esteem to carry out activities and to attend social gatherings. With rising cases of early skin aging signs, people have gone as far as skin transplantation and other surgical procedures to slow down the damage done to skin’s connective tissues. Technology has made it possible for the scientists to come up with many skin rejuvenators. This article will talk about the best ointment cream for a rejuvenated skin.
Many of us shop around for creams to enhance the looks of our skin. We have even been scared of using some products because they had negative results on someone else’s face. Below is a list of ingredients that make the best combination for the best ointment cream. For these ingredients to work, sun damage must be taken care of first. It could be done through sunscreens. Quit smoking and tanning habits as well.
- Vitamin A
Vitamin A has an active acid known as tretinoin. Tretinoin stimulates intracellular processes of cell growth, sebum production as well as the synthesis of collagen and elastin connective tissues of the skin which are proteins in nature. It also inhibits the damaging activity of matrix metalloproteinases(MMP) enzymes, which damage both collagen and elastin. Vitamin A has been proved to reduce wrinkles as well as skin roughness. It was also found to increase an epidermal thickness which is supported by the chemical action of tretinoin on MMP.
- Vitamin C
First of all, Vitamin C is an antibiotic. At times, the skin is made ugly by minor conditions such as hives and fungi infections. Germs are a number one cause for the appearance of rashes on the skin. Vitamin C fights bacteria and inhibits the damaging effect of hives or rashes to radiant skin. Vitamin C is an antioxidant as well. Have you ever peeled an avocado and noticed a color change after an exposure? Have you ever heard of the free radicals? They are byproducts of oxygen in the body and they damage the skin as they do to peeled avocados. Antioxidants in Vitamin C reduce the damaging effects of these free radicals. We need oxygen in the body making it impossible to live a life free of free radicals.
Many women at the menopause stage have low levels of estrogen that is why they get wrinkles faster after menopause. Health professionals link this effect to low levels of estrogen. It only means that estrogen is an important hormone in skin elasticity and flexibility. Research indicates that estrogen improves the moisture content of the skin and the synthesis of skin’s connective tissues. The effect on skin is the same for both men and women. Its effectivity on skin makes it a perfect ingredient in skin’s rejuvenation ointment creams.
Finding a cream with the combination of these three ingredients is hard. However, if you go to the store and get an ointment with at least one of these ingredients, the ointment will have amazing results on your skin provided it doesn’t have lead or mercury which have been proved scientifically to be bad for the skin.
