“Crows feet,” “elevens,” “laugh lines,” “turkey neck,” and the newly coined “tech neck” are some of the many ways people describe their aging, saggy, and wrinkled skin. For some, wrinkles and fine lines are cause for insecurities, while for others, their goals may be to ensure optimum long-term health for their skin. If wrinkles are a concern, there are a variety of ways to help reduce the appearance and reverse the signs of aging.
Solutions come in all forms, from topical serums and lotions to more invasive peels, fillers and injections. There are an incredible amount of options to consider when deciding what fits your skin’s needs and your personal goals. One of your first considerations should be to decide if you want to opt for a natural route, which is likely going to be more gentle on the skin, last longer, and have additional positive side-effects. That is where Aloe Vera comes into play.
IS ALOE VERA GOOD FOR WRINKLES?
There are many ingredients known to help prevent the appearance of aging skin, and some of them are naturally found in Aloe Vera, such as vitamins C & E. But one of the biggest reasons people turn to Aloe Vera for anti-aging effects is because its properties helps to naturally support collagen production. Collagen helps decrease wrinkles, improves skin elasticity, and tightens the appearance of skin. In addition to boosting collagen production, Aloe Vera contains amino acids, folic acid, and vitamin B12 which all help to fight free radicals, a major cause of wrinkles.
Aloe Vera is a one-two punch that skin needs to not only prevent and slow but also to reverse the signs of aging by boosting skin's production of collagen and keeping it moisturized. Unlike many medical procedures that are aimed to remove wrinkles entirely by plumping or otherwise augmenting skin, the use of high-end Aloe Vera-based skin care products can have a prolonged effect on your skin. Always ensure that your aloe products are made with fresh, organic Aloe Vera and not from concentrate or powders in order to maximize effectiveness.
WRINKLE-REDUCING ALOE VERA SKIN ROUTINE
ALODERMA’s products are designed to combat the appearance of fine lines and sagging skin. We recommend the following anti-aging skin care routine:
Step 1: Cleanse the skin with ALODERMA Aloe Nourishing Facial Cleanser, formulated with carnosine peptides that help to gently cleanse and exfoliate while naturally restoring the skin’s hydration and vitality.
Step 2: Pat your face dry with a towel and apply ALODERMA Aloe Firming & Rejuvenating Serum. This serum is enriched with hyaluronic acid and contains 88% fresh, organic aloe juice.
Step 3: Once the serum has had time to absorb into your skin, approximately 5 minutes, apply ALODERMA’s Aloe Nourishing & Rejuvenating Lotion or for even deeper hydration, apply ALODERMA’s Aloe Nourishing & Rejuvenating Cream, enriched with Jojoba Seed Oil and Shea Butter.
Bonus Step: In addition to aging and genetics, sun exposure is one of the leading causes of damaged skin and wrinkles. Because our hands are one of the most exposed parts of the body, not only to the sun but other elements and pollutants, we recommend adding a bonus step to your skin care regimen and include ALODERMA’s Aloe Nourishing Hand Cream.
HYDRATION FROM THE INSIDE OUT
If your focus is to naturally reduce the effects of aging, not only do we recommend having a quality skin care regimen, we also recommend to take care of your skin from the inside out. One way to do this is by consuming Aloe Vera Juice. Research suggests that taking Aloe Vera orally, as a supplement, helps to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
A study from 2009 in the Annals of Dermatology found that 1200 mg/d, a ¼ teaspoon, of pure Aloe Vera will significantly reverse the visual appearances of aging within just a few months. We recommend AloeCure’s Pure Aloe Vera Extract, which not only promotes a healthy gut with organic Aloe Vera, but also hydrates your body from the inside out.
At ALODERMA, we have taken great care in the way we plant, harvest and process the Aloe Vera found in our skin care products. Our ECOCERT certified organic plantations produce the Aloe we use in our products. We never use freeze-dried Aloe powder or concentrates and, once harvested, all aloe is processed and turned into end products within 12 hours, producing truly Fresh Aloe Skin Care. This allows us to capture the bio-active power of natural Aloe Vera, a claim that simply cannot be made by other skin care brands.
If you want radiant skin and are looking to naturally reduce the signs of aging and restore your skin’s collagen production, try ALODERMA. Feel the natural difference it makes when your skin care is rooted in the Earth, and begin your path to amazing beauty.
