Many of us do not realize how good we have it until it’s going or gone. Unfortunately, this applies to skincare as well. In your 20’s, your skin is at it’s most supple, plump and wrinkle-free. While you might suffer from occasional bouts of acne due to hormones, collagen stores are plentiful and there’s not a crow’s foot in sight. The most you may have to do is cleanse, tone, apply sunscreen and get on with your day. But make no mistake, doing something is preferable to skipping a skincare routine all together. Doing nothing can really backfire as you age. Preventative care is what you are aiming for now.
By your 30’s the skin might start to show signs of aging, depending on how much time you spent in the sun and how little you did or did not follow a skincare regimen in your 20’s. Crow’s feet might begin to show around the eyes, and laugh lines may appear around the mouth. Sun spots and hyper-pigmentation can also be a new cause for alarm. These new signs of aging will appear not only on your face, but on your hands, neck and decolletage area as well – anywhere that gets constant sun exposure will be at risk. Collagen levels also begin to drop in your 30’s and 40’s and skin will slowly begin to thin and sag. If you make an extra effort to care for your skin from an early age, then you can do much to prevent the early signs of aging.
If you were not one to start early with a skincare regimen and have noticed those small signs of aging creeping up, never fear. There is a lot you can still do to prevent future skin damage and even repair or reverse your age spots and wrinkles. Besides your basic daily skin care routine – cleansing, toning, moisturizing – it is important to also use a few anti aging skin care products. Nowadays there are many different products and treatments available in the market to prevent signs of aging. Some products might be laden with chemicals, acids and other ingredients promising fast, extreme results. It is up to you and perhaps your dermatologist to determine the products that will be most effective for your skin type.
Vivoderm is natural-based skincare line that always recommends using products that are as gentle and chemical-free as possible. One of the most successful products in the Vivoderm Natural Skincare line is the 100% herbal Anti-Aging Mask.
This mask and the entire Vivoderm line was developed over 40 years ago by the Vivoderm founder, holistic dermatologist, Dr. H. Adhami, and used on thousands of patients in his private practice. *
Dr. Adhami believes the best treatments will help revitalize and repair your skin, not chemically burn or peel it away. The Vivoderm Anti-Aging Mask is 100% herbal and natural and does not contain any chemicals or preservatives. Instead of peeling away the top layer of damaged skin, the way a chemical acid or peel would, the anti-aging mask allows the skin to heal and regenerate naturally with the absorption of pure enzymes and vitamins. The most powerful anti-aging herbs found in nature; Marshmallow, Rosemary and Aloe Vera, reduce inflammation and soothe skin while Lavender and Mint purify and refine the appearance of pores. Two powerful antioxidants, Vitamin E and Green Tea along with other therapeutic essentials, repair free-radical damage.
And unlike pure clay masks, this self-mixed facial mask uses actual pulverized herbs along with natural pro-active enzymes and vitamins to reduce age spots and discoloration, boost vitamin intake and provide nutrients and anti-oxidants to your skin. It can also be custom-blended to suit your changing skin needs. If you need more moisture or a pick-me-up, blend the herbal mask powder with plain yogurt. If your skin is oily, use water, toner or witch hazel to change the consistency and effect.
This mask was also designed to increase cellular turnover, skin circulation and perk up and invigorate dull, damaged skin. The medium-grain texture of the blended herbs creates a natural exfoliate to help remove top-layer dead skin cells and create a smoother skin touch and feel. Gentle exfoliation also minimizes pores and discolorations, purifies the skin and removes black heads. Natural yogurt enzymes act as a gentle skin lightener; minimizing sun, acne and pregnancy spots while protecting skin against future damage.
We believe after the very first use you will start noticing the difference in your skin to reveal a radiant, fresh and more youthful complexion. Full size kits, refills and sample kits are available at www.vivoderm.com
