Aging Skin

How can I improve the look of aging skin?

Step 1: Exfoliate to increase cell turnover:

The skin cycle becomes longer as we age, causing dead skin cells to collect on the top layer of the epidermis and make the skin look dry and rough. The epidermis also thins as we get older. Exfoliation stimulates new epidermal cell growth, which helps smooth, thicken and strengthen the skin for a younger appearance.

Step 2: Strengthen the dermal matrix of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid

To plump the skin and improve the appearance of fine lines, you must work from the inside out. Strengthen the dermis by using ingredients that stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

Step 3: Reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and discoloration

Treat sun spots, uneven skin tone and other discoloration with exfoliating treatments and products that contain melanin-inhibiting ingredients. Using these methods simultaneously increases your chance of success. Hydroquinone is a well-known skin lightener that inhibits the production of melanin. There are also natural lightening and brightening agents like emblica, licorice, oyster phoenix mushroom and kojic acid.

Step 4: Optimize hydration levels

Dry skin shows more pronounced wrinkling and a rougher texture. However, heavy moisturizers are not always the solution. Use the correct ingredients to draw and lock in moisture, and improve the skin’s ability to produce its own moisture.

Step 5: Protect with broad-spectrum sunscreen

Sun exposure damages DNA and skin cells over time, reducing the skin’s natural ability to repair itself and negating positive results from skin care. Sun exposure after certain professional treatments, like chemical peels, may actually cause hyperpigmentation to develop. It is critical to protect skin with broad-spectrum sunscreens that provide both UVA and UVB protection. Zinc oxide is currently the most effective sunscreen ingredient due to its ability to physically block UVA and UVB rays. For this reason, all AlumierMD sunscreens contain zinc oxide.

Step 6: Protect with antioxidants

Free radicals damage skin cells and their DNA, which can result in visible signs of aging over time. Protect the skin with free radical-fighting {{antioxidants}}.
