- What is the best skin care for aged skin?

Essential additions to every anti-aging cesmaceutics are “The golden four”

Free radicals set off a chain reaction in our skin’s cells, which results in lines, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and a loss of firmness and elasticity.
Antioxidants neutralize free radicals in our skin. Look for products that combine vitamins A and C and green tea or have a “superhero” antioxidant like acai berry or idebenone.

Peptides are the building blocks of our cells and increase cellular production.Peptides activate collagen and elastin production,
The most popular peptide for cosmetic use is palmitoyl pentapeptide (a.k.a. Matrixyl), but there are also copper peptides, neuropeptides, marine peptides and hexapeptides. Over time, the skin gains resiliency and elasticity and is thicker and firmer, and you’ll notice a smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.
AHAs, such as glycolic and lactic acid, accelerate exfoliation and keep pores clear,  improving the texture and clarity of the skin. They minimize the appearance of scars, fine lines and sun spots. AHAs make your more sensitive to the sun, so always wear at least an SPF 15 whenever you are outside.
Retinol in all its forms (i.e. vitamin A, retinoic acid, tretinoin), targets the fibroblasts that support collagen and elastin, ultimately promoting skin renewal and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. UV rays from the sun deactivate the retinol, so you get a more effective treatment at night. Retinol can cause skin irritation, so if you’re introducing it into your skin-care regimen, do it slowly. Apply two times a week at night, gradually building up to using it on a daily basis.

- How to get rid of enlarged pores?

You can’t get rid of enlarged pores, but you can make them appear smaller.
Pores are hair follicles into which oil glands empty. These areas become dilated because of excess oil and lack of collagen surrounding the pores.
Use an exfoliating cleanser that is gentle enough to use every day. For lasting results, choose products containing salicylic acid. Regular exfoliation with hydroxy acids keeps pores clean, while using clay-based masks with ingredients like kaolin twice a week will have a refining effect.Using products with vitamin A  keeps pores tight and small. Hydrate with oil-free moisturizer.

- How to nourish the décolletage?

The décolleté skin is thinner, more susceptible to sun damage and slower to heal from injury or age-related changes. Lines, crepiness and age spots are the biggest offenders.

It’s not late to protect and preserve the delicate chest area with a range of new potions and professional treatments.
Never stop with beauty regimen at the jaw line. Aply day cream with sunscreen on the neck and the chest.
For age spots look for cream, lotion and serums containing glucosamine (a sugar), niacinamide (a vitamin B derivative) or that longtime favourite, vitamin C – all of which offer unparalleled skin brightening.
For an intense boost of hydration, look for products containing omega fatty acids as well as creams or gels with caffeine, co-enzyme Q10 and retinol  – all of which temporarily dilate epidermal cells for smoother, younger-looking skin. Apply morning and night with circular motion.

- How to smooth the wrinkles?

Skin aging definitely contributes to wrinkle formation. Sun exposure favourites skin aging, including appearance of wrinkles.
There are expressive wrinkles and occur at sites of repeated muscle contraction. Good examples of are the lines between the eyes, forehead, and crow’s feet. The best method for softening the wrinkles are|”Botox” treatments which weaken the muscles of facial expression.
Permanent wrinkles occur as a result of skin laxity ( Nasolabial folds) or frequent movement (crow’s feet). They are usually seen more often in patients over the age of 30 and become more pronounced with age. The best method to correct them is injectable fillers.
Proper daily skin care consists of mild exfoliator, prevention with sunscreen of 30 or higher, using a product with 1% Retinol or AHAs, good moisturizer.

- What to do before facelift?

Before facelift experience liquidlift – Less invasive procedures for subtle results

Facelift numbers are actually down from previous years but liquidlift is more numerous.
For this procedure you’ve got to go to a experienced physician with a Botox and fillers.
