Chasing The Look Of Eternal Youth
The ideal is men accumulate more knowledge and should grow wiser with age. The truth is, the body’s ability to replenish dead or dying cells is also diminished as the years advance, resulting to the aging process. Having a healthy life as one ages does not only involve physical exercises, balanced diet, adequate sleep or avoiding intake of harmful substances (i.e., smoking, drugs, alcohol, etc.). Sustaining a positive mental outlook, stimulating the mind as well as taking part in spiritually uplifting activities help reduce stress, since stress can considerably hasten aging. Recent research shows that the brain has a tremendous capacity for plasticity, which when optimized, can allow a person to plan for and by-pass impending health conditions. As the saying goes, “crush the spirit and the body follows”. Life must move on and getting older is a given, but the physical manifestations of the process can be slowed down with anti aging products in addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle as mentioned earlier.
Various health and cosmetic products and treatments are available in the market today to improve the appearance and condition of the skin. These are formulated to rejuvenate the skin to make people look younger. Looking great makes one feel great and enhances self-esteem. Definitely this aids a person in his golden years not just reminisce the good old days alone, but enjoy life to the fullest in the company of others.
Anti-aging products to revitalize the skin come in the form of creams, lotions, toners, masks, moisturizers, cleansers, mud packs, etc. Preparations that are applied to “peel” off dead or dying skin and revitalize growth of new skin cells are available. Moisturizers hydrate the skin to increase resilience to wrinkle formation. Some are specially created to soften skin and refine pores for a smoother skin texture, while others control the development of spots and improve skin for an even tone. Formulations can also be applied to enhance the look of softness, fairness and luminosity for radiant skin. Elasticity of the skin to prevent sagging is also possible with certain creams, masks and serums.
Today, dermatologists are able to restore the natural luminosity of a person’s face and smoothen hard-to-treat wrinkles with laser treatments. These regimes, clinically called “fractional non-ablative laser treatments”, work with targeted beams of light below the skin’s surface to accelerate collagen and elastin production. There is now a laser treatment being endorsed that involves a natural collagen renewal process which the person can perform at home without need for going to the dermatologist’s office. This process can dramatically create a radiant and smooth complexion without need for make-up.
The fountain for eternal youth may be a myth, but with the advancements in science and technology, people may yet look ageless as human life expectancy becomes longer.
