Towards Natural Beauty, No Matter Your Age
Appearance is more and more important in today’s world: in our image-driven society, everyone aims to have fresh and natural skin, to feel better, and to look attractive in both their personal and business lives. This increasing demand for new facial rejuvenation and anti-aging techniques is now merging with another trend. Today, patients expect natural and non-aggressive solutions. To answer this new demand, the beauty market is turning towards alternative rejuvenation techniques that restore skin quality and respect genuine, natural beauty. Aesthetic doctors and plastic surgeons are aware that classic anti-aging solutions and techniques are nothing more than “make-up” and don’t represent a sustainable and healthy strategy to fight the physiological aging process.
Here are essential tips to help you build a smart, daily regimen and skin-healthy lifestyle to make you look young, radiant, and healthy, no matter what age you are. Develop the skincare habits that’ll create a lifetime of beautiful, radiant and healthy skin.
In Your 20s
Your 20s are the time to enjoy a complexion that’s clear, even-toned, and relatively wrinkle-free. But don’t get too comfortable with your less-than-stressful skin. It is at this age that you must develop the skincare habits that’ll help you achieve a gorgeous complexion that lasts a lifetime.
At age 25, skin starts to age. Collagen-producing cells in the body become lazy and inactive, leaving skin looking dull and wrinkled. It is time to include in your beauty regimen LPG New Endermolift sessions. LPG’s team of renowned experts have drawn on in-depth research to develop a new technology that is proven to reactivate these cells to reverse your skin’s natural ageing process. New Endermolift™ naturally triggers the synthesis of substances that keep your skin looking young and healthy from the inside out.
Commit to a simple two-step regimen of gently cleansing and hydrating skin and look for exfoliants with fine granules. Use sunscreen everyday whatever the weather is like. It is the best preventative-ageing strategy around. Invest in an eye cream. The skin around the eyes is usually the first place where signs of ageing start to set in, so take action with a targeted eye treatment.
In Your 30s
As your 30s draw near, you may notice that the signs of aging start to appear – including fine lines around the eyes and loss of elasticity. Juggling family life and work commitments can be stressful resulting in early signs of ageing that manifest in the form of dappled pigmentation and lines that are etching into the skin more and more deeply.
To keep your skin in tip-top shape, continue with your regular LPG facial treatments. Using patented technology, New Endermolift™ rejuvenates skin from within, reactivating cells to produce an enhanced natural supply of collagen for preservation and firmness, elastin for suppleness and hyaluronic acid for volume and hydration. With its ability to target and stimulate fibroblasts, New Endermolift™ treatments leave a glowing purified complexion, with fine lines smoothed and plumped, and puffiness and dark circles treated.
You should start adding ‘active’ ingredients into your skincare routine, alternating retinoic acid and an AHA treatment at night. You should also add antioxidants in the morning to neutralize the free radicals that increase the breakdown of collagen or elastin, providing a further line of defense against free radical-triggering ultraviolet rays. Use hydroquinone which acts by inhibiting an enzyme called tyrosinase in the skin cells that produce pigment.
In Your 40s
In your 40S, you generally have more time and resources to invest in taking good care of how you look. Growing old gracefully is a prime concern which requires an upgrade in effort.
Most importantly, to naturally stimulate youthful beauty from within, make time for regular LPG New Endermolift sessions and make your professional LPG skin therapist your best ally in your anti-aging efforts. If you haven’t yet committed to regular facial treatments, now is the time. It’s the best thing you can do for the long-term quality of your skin. If deep wrinkles, sagging skin, or double chins are a concern, talk to an LPG skin professional about treatment options that give good visible results.
Secondly, get firmer. This is a good time to seriously get into shape, log in hours at the gym and firm and tone your body. In your 40s, oestrogen levels start to drop, which affects oil production and collagen. To have skin deep beauty, you must maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle. The main difference in your 40s is that skin no longer bounces back as quickly. If you eat unhealthily, have a late night out, or drink too much, it shows in your face straight away in the form of sluggishness and dehydration. Regular exercise, eating a healthy diet with more fruits and foods rich in omega 3, six hours of sleep and drinking your 8 glasses of water can all add up in making your feel more energetic which translates to a youthful glow. When your body is running well, your skin will always look its best.
The same way physical activity is vital to muscles, joints and the heart’s health, this principle is also true for skin. LPG® New Endermolift™ delivers this vital skin fitness that is 100% natural and effective solution to firm, tighten and re-sculpt the face, neck, hands and décolleté.
