The Treatment for and the Prevention of Aging Effect, Especially on the Skin

Of course, we cannot avoid aging, but we can certainly try to minimize the sun and environmental damage by avoiding these harmful causes. Beyond that, we can treat and prevent the skin aging and damage effect by systematically addressing the causes of these negative changes, in this case, by employing active ingredients in cosmeceuticals. The logic of the approach for using cosmeceuticals for treating aging and damaged skin is as follows:

  • Cosmeceuticals with active ingredients to correct or prevent the oxidative damage from the ROS- Reactive Oxygen Species:

From the previous discussion on the negative effect of oxidative damages to the skin and supporting tissues, it would be reasonable to treat and limit the production of the ROS. The class of active ingredients, classified as anti-oxidants, topically applied, would be examined for their effectiveness and safety.

  • Cosmeceuticals with active ingredients to treat or prevent lines and wrinkles:

For the dynamic lines, a treatment would be Botox Cosmetic injections to stop the facial muscles from contracting and avoid the formation of those expression lines. For the static lines, the treatment and prevention lie with the improvement to the support, elasticity and hydration of the skin and the subcutaneous (beneath the skin) tissue. Active ingredients in this category aim at improving the supportive and contouring effect of collagen, elastin and hyaluronan.

  • Cosmeceuticals with active ingredients to correct or prevent loss of volume or facial descent:

The objective would be to build and strengthen the supportive and elastic tissue elements such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronan with topical active ingredients.

  • Cosmeceuticals with active ingredients to treat and prevent skin color, texture irregularity and age spots:

Besides using anti-oxidant natural products, skincare products containing active ingredients that can affect the pigment cells, and epithelium of the skin could even the ckin color, tone and texture.

Many cosmeceuticals contain multiple active ingredients that would address the different aspects of the skin aging problems. The formulation of these cosmeceuticals can be very complex, coupling with varying carriers that might or might not affect the effectiveness of those active ingredients. Renufem will guide you through the complexity of the active ingredients in the cosmeceuticals to help in selecting the most suitable beauty products for you. We will give you the scientific facts on some key active ingredients, regarding function, effectiveness and safety, then show you the cosmeceuticals that heavily leverage the effect of those active ingredients as key components.
