When it comes to preventing the effects of aging, time is of the essence. Your skin is constantly exposed to all kind of hazards – environmental ones being just the tip of the iceberg here. A lot of stressors such as bad lifestyle habits, harsh chemicals such as soap, or even just lack of sleep may cause it to lose its natural elasticity and glow. Dryness will deprive the most external layers of your dermis of the necessary water that cells require to grow and thrive. It’s easy just to ignore all this when you’re still in your early twenties, but as you reach your thirties, you know very well that if you don’t act quickly enough, wrinkles and crow’s feet will start appearing in no time.
SimySkin 35+ Antiaging serum’s formula is designed to provide your skin with all the necessary natural ingredients to preserve its integrity over time. You reap what you sow, so the more you know how to take care about your skin with the right products, the higher will be your chances to preserve your skin smooth and intact for a lot of years. Let’s dive a bit deeper into the issue, so we know how to effectively help our skin to fend off the effects of aging.
Fighting against wrinkles and crow’s feet
A thin layer of connective tissue made of collagen and elastin sustain your skin as a cushion and keeps it soft and supple. Water allows runs amidst these proteins and provides cells with all the nutrients they need. The more your skin is plump and hydrated, the more well-fed your dermal cells are, and the more the whole structure is resistant to stressors and aging. However, anything that changes this marvelous equilibrium, slowly causes the building to start crumbling – especially dehydration.
The number of cells produced will wane, and the fewer they are, the less they can produce the so much needed collagen and elastin. At some point, your skin will start losing its natural elasticity, become dry and frail, and will start breaking up – crevices and cracks forming all across your face, especially under your eyes. These cracks are the so-called “dynamic lines,” which is nothing but a less scaring word to call wrinkles. Those that radiate from the external corners of your eyes are known as crow’s feet, and many people loathe them as they make them look older than they really are. Although wrinkles cannot be entirely prevented, the best cosmetic products such as SimySkin 35+ Antiaging serum can do marvels to make them look much less prominent.
What is Sorghum Bicolor Stalk Juice?
Sorghum bicolor Stalk Juice is used in cosmetics to tighten skin. As the name implies, this ingredient is juice from the stalks of the Sorghum bicolor plant, an ancient species of grain-producing grass consumed by both humans and animals. Probably discovered by the Egyptians some 8000 years ago, sorghum is now cultivated in many regions of Africa, India, and China, where it was domesticated centuries ago as an important cereal used for human consumption.
Many personal hygiene products and soaps react with our dermal cells, causing it to overreact as a natural defense mechanism is activated. The more our skin is irritated, the more quickly it will lose its external barrier, becoming even more vulnerable against aging. Chronic inflammation is one of the principal reasons for aging itself, as well as a dangerous risk factor for many conditions and diseases. Since it’s a natural grain, sorghum extract is extremely delicate and does not cause irritations even on the most sensitive skin. Even better, thanks to its immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory action, it rapidly soothes the skin whenever it is damaged by other harsh agents. On top of that, sorghum possesses the ability to counteract the activity of the dangerous free radicals (which destroy collagen and elastin), since it is a powerful antioxidant on its own.
Once applied on the skin, sorghum a durable and elastic film with a potent tightening effect. This film protects the skin from exposure and significantly reduces the loss of moisture. By keeping water inside tissues, Sorghum juice replenishes dry cells, and help the external layers of your dermis stay supple and firm. Your skin will be rejuvenated and rehydrated, effectively slowing down those same processes that cause most damage over time. On top of all that, the stretchy but resilient film built of sorghum binds strongly to cutaneous proteins, providing a physical and mechanical micro-lifting effect (i.e. it “pulls” the skin).
All in all, it looks that this cereal’s extract does a pretty good job to come off like an amazing protective agent to defend your skin against all kind of hazardous substances.
