Love Your Skin: Skin Treatment Tips

Growing old is something no one can avoid. Every few years we notice differences on our skin; maybe we notice wrinkles, age spots, fine lines as well as other marks that were not there before.

These marks could be considered beautiful by some, and others might consider it the worst thing that has happened to them.

Sani Dental Group understands the importance of having strong, young-looking, healthy skin; for this reason, we would like to offer our readers 3 steps that will help them love their skin no matter what’s their age.

Your Skin

The largest organ in the body is the skin; in adults, the total average area consists of about 20 square feet.

This magnificent organ is capable of doing many things. The skin protects us from microbes and their elements; in addition, this organ helps regulate body temperature and allows us to feel the sensation of touch, cold, or heat.

Overall, skin is made up of 3 layers:

  • The Epidermis
    • The outermost layer of skin: this layer provides you with a waterproof barrier and our skin color/tone.
  • The Dermis
    • The layer beneath the epidermis; consists of a tough connective tissue where hair follicles and sweat glands are.
  • The Hypodermis
    • This is the deepest layer of our skin and is made up of fat and connective tissue.

Fact: Melanocytes cells produce the pigment melanin, these are the cells responsible for our skin color.

Love your Skin in your 50’s

Step 1 – Cleanse

Your skin is constantly regenerating, using skin products with exfoliators will encourage the production of new skin cells. In addition, if the product exfoliators are natural, then your epidermis will be clean from dead cells.

Step 2 – Protect

The sun is constantly affecting our skin, especially if we spend the entire day or almost the entire day in the sun. Using sunscreen on a daily basis reduces skin aging by 24%. 

It also monitors pimples, bumps, and rough patches, which can turn cancerous if not treated.

Step 3 – Smooth

At the age of 50, your skin can look smooth and young thanks to collagen; when applying lotions or creams with retinoids vitamins C and E, you reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.

Love your Skin in your 60’s

Step 1 – Cleanse

If you have reached the age of 60 we congratulate you, not many have reached this age. At this age, your body is still producing new skin cells and the dead cells are pushed to the epidermis.

Using exfoliators will remove dead skins, clear menopausal acne, and stimulate the production of collagen.

Step 2 – Protect

Continue examining your skin when you have reached this age, especially look out for pimples, bumps, and rough patches; if these are present, visit your dermatologist to determine if it is a threat to your health or not.

Step 3 – Smooth

When at the store, look for and purchase products that protect your skin from moisture loss and continue using antioxidant products; especially when you reach the age of 60.

Facing dark spots? We recommend you a daily spot treatment with products containing hydroquinone, this will diminish dark patches in six to eight weeks.

Love your Skin in your 70’s

Step 1 – Cleanse

If dermatologists consider that washing your face twice a day is important in your 40’s, then it becomes critical for you to do it in your 70’s.

Use products that are moisture and creamy-rich when cleaning your skin, this will reduce irritation and skin damage.

Step 2 – Protect

Using a product with SPF 30 or higher will protect you from harmful UV rays, however, at the age of 70, the most important thing to consider is to keep your skin's moisture and young.

Continue checking your skin if you notice pimples or bumps that easily bleed and don’t heal; check with your dermatologist as this could be a sign of precancerous spots.

Step 3 – Smooth

You have reached the age of 70 and we are proud of this achievement; now the key to having smoother, younger-looking skin at this age is moisturizer.

When purchasing creams, lotions, or exfoliating items, look at the ingredients. Ingredients like vitamins C and E, and coenzyme Q10 will definitely help.
