Skin aging and Anti-Aging cosmetics. When is the time to start?

Although everyone ages differently, aging skin is usually characterized by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, rough texture and discoloration.

Collagen is one of the most important proteins in our body, influencing the elasticity and youth of our skin. Although collagen production begins to decline around 18-20 years of age, the first signs of collagen decline in the skin are usually not seen until 28-30 years of age. After the age of 30, collagen decreases by about 2% per year, or by about 30% in total.

Collagen decline peaks at around 40 years of age at around 3% per year, so by age 50 collagen levels are down almost 50% compared to age 30.

External factors and stress have no less influence on skin aging and damage to collagen in your skin. Free radicals - unstable molecules that are formed under the influence of the sun, pollution and other environmental factors, not only break down collagen and elastin, increase inflammation, but also make it difficult to maintain moisture in the skin, hindering the skin's barrier function. This causes dryness, irritation and facilitates the penetration of other irritants. Free radical damage builds up over time. When they come in contact with skin cells, free radicals can damage cellular structures and even DNA

Anti-aging facials are usually designed to help fight skin aging while preventing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Depending on its action and ingredients, "Anti-Aging" cosmetics can improve skin color tone, tighten it, lighten skin color and skin spots.

When choosing "Anti-Aging" cosmetics, it is very important to pay attention to its composition and remember several important ingredients that are particularly useful both in stimulating collagen production and in protecting it from free radicals:

Hyaluronic Acid - Hyaluronic acid can bind and retain very large amounts of water, up to 1000 times its own weight. It helps the skin retain moisture, elasticity and softness. As you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin gradually decreases, using products containing a lot of hyaluronic acid you can rehydrate the skin, it will look more voluminous and smoother.

Ceramides are a type of lipid (fat) found in the upper layer of the skin. They make up about 50% of the skin's composition and play a key role in maintaining the skin's moisture barrier. Ceramides fill the gaps between the epidermal skin cells, helping to seal the cracks in the barrier that occur with aging. They help the skin retain moisture and plumpness more effectively, fight dryness and wrinkles.

Naturally derived adaptogens are a powerful and effective ingredient in face care cosmetics that help protect the skin from free radicals. HYPHA "Anti-Aging" line products are even enriched with several adaptogens - ginseng and Lion's mane (Lion's mane) mushrooms.

Ginseng contains a high concentration of ginsenosides, which can increase collagen production in the skin and protect it from collagen breakdown, helping to improve skin elasticity and reduce wrinkles.

Lion's mane extracts contain antioxidant phenols, polysaccharides, and enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) that can protect against wrinkle-causing free radicals on the skin.

You should take care of your skin and external factors such as sun damage and pollution as early as possible, but it is recommended to start using Anti-Aging cosmetics from around the age of 30. To slow down the aging of the skin, it is important not only to use good facial care cosmetics, but also to have a healthy lifestyle - quality sleep and food, limited stress and minimal damage from external factors. And when choosing, a good one "Anti-Aging" cosmetics, do not forget to make sure that it is full of ingredients necessary for your skin, which would take care of your skin's moisture, collagen production and protection against free radicals.
