By the time you would be in your mid 30s, you should learn how to enhance your anti aging skin care and rejuvenation treatment. The changing image of old age is associated with humans, more than ever, trying to address the cause of aging using cosmetics and plastic surgery. However, you cannot talk about maintaining a younger looking skin with less wrinkles if you are tanning under the sun and smoking. So you need to understand what is going on. The presentation of aging is linked with the gravity impact, muscles action, loss of volume, diminishing and redistribution of superficial and deep fat, loss of bony skeleton support that results in a sagging face as well as some changes in the shape and contour. Aging has always resulted in various skin and body pathologies, which includes degenerative disorders. How do you address sagging skin and fine lines?
A daily skin care may increase skin regeneration, elasticity, smoothness. This may temporarily change the condition of the skin. To prevent the formation of wrinkles, it is necessary to stop skin degradation. This means looking into the collagen, elastin, and other skin primary structural components to prevent the formation of wrinkles.
Avocado anti aging power
Avocado can amazingly reduce wrinkles. It is the best known anti aging skin care ingredient across the cosmetics industry. You can mash its flesh to make a homemade facial mask. The oil of the avocado helps tighten sagging skin.
The facial avocado paste provides a treasury of vitamins, minerals, and natural oils. You nourish your skin with protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, iron, and potassium when you use the avocado as the major ingredient in your skin firming mask. Among the fruits, the avocado has been noted to contain the highest protein. Because of its high protein content, avocados are known to promote healthy skin and hair.
How to make an avocado face mask
The avocado oil, which is mostly used in cosmetics, is known to be very stable with a shelf life of more than 10 years. You can even make an avocado juice to nourish and protect your skin inside out. Mix one ripe avocado with a cup of milk using a blender. That is what you need to effectively re-invigorate a dull, drier skin.
If you have a dry skin, you can mix 1 avocado, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon honey. Mix until it becomes a paste. Apply over the face and neck.
Pick and use a fully ripe avocado. Store some of your fruits in the refrigerator, but not in the freezer. Since avocado is perishable, the facial moisturizer is good for one time use only. You may refrigerate the mashed fruit up to 48 hours, but it is always best to use fresh avocado fruit each time you make the paste. Mix and blend the following ingredients
- Half avocado fruit
- Half cup of milk
- Egg yolk
Beat the egg yolk until it is light and frothy. Mash half of the avocado fruit. Add one half cup of milk. Use a cotton ball to apply the mixture to your face. Discard after use. Wash your face with water.
Another anti aging facial mask recipe is mixing the banana, avocado, and a few drops of lemon juice. This mixture is great for dry and sun damaged skin.
The best avocado face pack is mashing 1 avocado, 1 tablespoon of tomato pulp, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Skin the avocado and mash with the other ingredients. Spread over the face and neck. Leave for at least 20 minutes. Rinse with tepid water.
Do you need to revitalize your scalp as well? Massage the mashed avocado on your scalp to treat your dry, itchy scalp. Packed with Vitamins A, D, and E, the avocado can hydrate the scalp and smooth your strands. Another way to do this is to mash one peeled avocado until soft and then mix in a splash of coconut milk. Comb the treatment through your hair and shampoo after 15 minutes.
Patented for treatment of dermatitis
The avocado has been patented to treat some forms of dermatitis and arthritis. A long term treatment of avocado oil helps relieve eczema. It can be applied directly on the itchy, red, or irritated areas of the skin. The oil is often used to treat eczema or psoriasis. Compared with the corn, olive, soybean oil, and corn, the avocado oil has the highest skin penetration rate.
In the Central and the South America, the avocado oil is used to protect the skin from the blistering sun, harsh winds, and the rain including preventing chapped lips. Rubbing the avocado all over your body provides a sumptuous spa experience.
Avocado sterolins reduce age spots
The avocado fruit contains high amounts of sterolins that were reputed to reduce age spots and heal scars. Actually, it is the sterolins or steroids in the oil that helps soften the skin and provide a superior moisturizing effect. The avocado oil is extremely good at moisturizing, nourishing, regenerating, and rejuvenating the skin.
In 1991, the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology Department of Food Engineering and Biotechnology reported the avocado oil to significantly increase the amount of collagen in the skin. The oil is easily absorbed into the deep tissue making it ideal for mature skin care.
