When it comes to your skin, there are numerous precautions you should take to keep skin healthy. While cleaning and moisturizing the skin are ways to make the skin look better, you should also be aware of the things that can harm your skin as well. Being aware of some of the biggest threats to your skin will help you keep your skin healthy, beautiful and protected from harm. Here are some of the six biggest threats that your skin can face.

Tanning and Sun Damage

Tanning booths are one of the biggest threats to your skin. Many people decide to tan in a tanning booth prior to heading to the beach or a vacation where they will be in the sun a lot, so their skin doesn’t burn when they are outside. Although this is a preventative measure designed to keep skin healthy it is actually horrible for your skin. The concentrated amount of UV lights can burn skin and lead to premature age spots, wrinkles or sagging.

Smoking Skin Damage and Preventing Wrinkles From Smoking

It may comes as no surprise that smoking is extremely bad for your lungs and heart. However, many people don’t realize that smoking is also very bad for the skin. Smoking can cause the skin to become discolored, age prematurely and wrinkle much faster.  Smoking also destroys the vitamin C in your body which prevents the body from producing the elastin that keeps skin tight. The nicotine in cigarettes can also prevent healthy blood circulation to the skin, causing skin to look dull, and preventing the skin’s cells from getting the oxygen they need to stay replenished and stay looking young and healthy and vibrant.

The Sun – Causes Age Spots, Wrinkles and Dry Skin

The uv light from the tanning booth isn’t the only type of light that will damage the skin. Too much sun will not only make your skin look aged and wrinkled, but it can also lead to age spots or skin cancer later on. It is important to always apply sunscreen or a lotion with at least SPF 15 in it every time you go out in the sun.

Soda and Coffee – The Effects On Your Skin

Drinking too much soda or coffee for the caffeine can actually cause major problems with the skin. Loading up on these types of beverages will dehydrate the body. When skin doesn’t have enough water it not only appears dull and dry but it is more likely to break out with acne. Water helps eliminate waste in the body and from the skin, without enough water to do this, that waste and bacteria will build up and cause acne to form.

Alcohol Skin Damage

Alcohol, like coffee and soda can dehydrate the skin and cause dryness and other problems. However, alcohol can expand the blood vessels in the body to a point where it can cause problems. This will cause red spots to appear on the skin, for the skin to become discolored and for itchiness to occur.

Yourself

While you can do a number of things to keep the skin healthy, you can also serve as one of the biggest threats to your skin. Many people allow themselves to pop, pick or squeeze their pimples. While many people believe it is necessary to pop large zits, its actually quite bad for the skin. Popping a large pimple will generally make the puss and bacteria that fills the zit spread to more areas of the skin. Popping zits can also lead to scarring. The best option for active acne, would be the Cleane Acne Therapy Device, which improves the appearance of acne by up to 90% in just 24 hours!

Wrinkle Treatment – Formation and Removal

For many people, wrinkles are a part of everyday life. But if you are looking into wrinkle treatment, wrinkle removal, wrinkle reduction, or indeed any other kind of anti-aging procedure, it is important to understand how wrinkles are formed – and for that we need to understand how our skin is constructed. There are many layers in the skin; however it can be generally divided into three main parts.

  • The outermost layer everyone can see, called the epidermis – this contains skin cells, pigment, and proteins.
  • The middle layer, called the dermis – this contains blood vessels, nerves, hair follicles, and oil glands
  • The innermost layer, called the subcutaneous layer – This contains sweat glands, some hair follicles, blood vessels, and fat.

Each layer of the skin contains connective tissue with collagen fibres to give support and elastin fibres to provide flexibility and strength.  The following video explains exactly how they are formed and how you can remove wrinkles.

Wrinkle Formation

Younger skin tends not to show wrinkles as it does an excellent job of stretching and holding in moisture. The elastin in it keeps it looking and feeling young, along with the collagen protein in the dermis which also assists in preventing wrinkles.

However, over time, the dermis loses both its collagen and elastin, so the skin gets thinner and has trouble getting enough moisture to the epidermis. In addition, the fat in the subcutaneous layer that gives skin a plump appearance also begins to disappear. Overall, this affects the epidermis layer causing it to begin sagging and forming wrinkles.

These changes in the connective tissue which reduce the strength and elasticity are known as elastosis and is especially pronounced in sun-exposed areas – and also with individuals who smoke.

Wrinkles and Aging

There isn’t a specific age when people suddenly get wrinkles: Even young people in their 20s begin forming wrinkles, particularly around their eyes (called “crow’s feet”) from squinting or spending too much time in the sun.

Some more fortunate people may well be in their 50s or 60s before they begin to form their first lines and have to start considering ways to treat wrinkles. This is usually because they have taken good care of their skin, although it is also largely dependant on genes. However it happens to all of us eventually as a natural part of the aging process.

QUESTION? What do scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and uneven skin have in common?

ANSWER: A lack of collagen! If your body would produce more collagen then you wouldn’t get them. Using a Scientia Derma Roller is a very effective treatment for wrinkles (and many other conditions), as it offers nature a helping hand by encouraging collagen production in the skin, which helps prevent or reverse their formation.

Treatment of Wrinkles and Anti Aging

There are ways of holding back and even reversing this aging process by taking advantage of the way our skin behaves under certain conditions. Our skin is designed to heal itself naturally and our Derma-Roller is designed to take advantage of this fact – artificially stimulating the natural ability of the skin to generate the building blocks of younger, tighter skin, therefore offering a great treatment for the removal of wrinkles. The Scientia Derma Roller helps to boost collagen production by creating a painless perceived trauma to the upper two layers of the skin by opening the pores. This stimulates increased blood flow / nutrients, and the increase of collagen within the skin reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines – all without causing any real damage in the way that laser treatment, chemical peels or micro dermabrasion do.

The second major benefit is that because the pores of the upper layer are temporarily opened (for about an hour), wrinkle remover creams and oils are able to be absorbed far more effectively. This boosts their effectiveness by up to 40 times. The skin is, after all, your body’s natural barrier to the outside world and is designed to keep external substances out.

Getting Rid of Wrinkles

Removing wrinkles has never been more cost effective: The Scientia Derma Roller has given thousands of individuals the opportunity to finally slow / reverse the aging process and get rid of wrinkles, without the need for wrinkle surgery or other expensive treatments. We are so confident that it works, we offer a full money back guarantee.
