Title: Facial skin care for mature skin

Facial skin care for mature skin
  • Photoaging refers to the damage that is done to
    the skin from prolonged exposure to UV radiation
    over a person's lifetime.
  • Roughness, wrinkling, irregular pigmentation
    (coloration), inelasticity, enlarged sebaceous
    (oil) glands, precancerous, and cancerous lesions
    are all examples of skin changes associated with
  • Smoking has also been shown to speed up aging of
    skin, so stopping smoking is important for good
    skin health.
  • In addition, a well-balanced diet allows the skin
    to get the nutrition it needs to help repair
    ongoing damage from the sun and other
    environmental elements.

Here are some of the products that can be used
for anti-aging purposes,
  • Tretinoin (Retin-A and Renova)
  • Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs)
  • Beta hydroxy acid (salicylic acid)
  • Sun protection

Tretinoin (Retin-A and Renova)
  • a prescription medication first developed to
    treat acne.
  • In addition, it improved skin texture and color
    when used over an extended period of time.
  • Tretinoin exfoliates the skin (removes a dead
    layer of skin cells), helps even out
    pigmentation, and minimizes fine lines.
  • Side effects of tretinoin include dryness, skin
    peeling, and redness.
  • You may be able to minimize these side effects by
    using tretinoin every other night and then
    gradually increasing the frequency to every
    night, as tolerated.
  • Tretinoin also makes the skin more sensitive to
    ultraviolet rays from the suntherefore, the use
    of a broad-spectrum sunscreen each morning is

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs)
  • Alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic, lactic, tartaric,
    and citric acids) are found as ingredients of
    numerous skin products.
  • In the United States alone, there are
    approximately 185 manufacturers of products
    containing AHAs.
  • Creams and lotions with AHA may help with fine
    lines, irregular pigmentation, age spots, and may
    help decrease enlarged pores.
  • Side effects of AHAs include mild irritation and
    sun sensitivity.
  • For that reason, sunscreen should also be used
    every morning.

Beta hydroxy acid (salicylic acid)
  • Salicylic acid also has been studied for its
    effect on photoaged skin.
  • It exfoliates skin, and can improve the texture
    and color of the skin.
  • It penetrates oil-laden hair follicle openings
    and, as a result, also helps improve acne.
  • There are many over-the-counter products
    available that contain salicylic acid.

Sun protection
  • Avoiding midday sun (between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.).
  • Wearing wide-brimmed hats, long-sleeved shirts,
    and pants.
  • Using a generous amount of sunscreen and
    reapplying it frequently (every 2 to 3 hours).
  • Using sunscreens that have a sun protection
    factor (SPF) greater than 30, and have UVA and
    UVB coverage.
  • Avoiding tanning beds (tanning beds are now
    considered a carcinogen, capable of causing

  • Eventhough there are some easy remedies like
    sunscreens and sun protections can be used to
    prevent further progression of photoaging, it is
    better to have an assistance from a one of the
    best skin care clinics in Madurai to take better
    care of your skin.
