How To Create Anti Aging Serum By Yourself
An anti aging serum is a very good solution to erase those fine lines and other age-related blemishes, except that these are pretty expensive.
There is another solution – to use homemade anti aging serum because the ingredients are amazingly inexpensive. All in all, one must consider the benefits of this option like the safety, freshness, convenience and doing the treatments in the comfort of your own home.
To help one decide on what home remedies must be mixed in a homemade anti aging serum to address skin problems, it is vital to understand the nature and characteristics of an aging skin.
The turnover rate of epidermal or outermost skin cells among older adults is approximately 30% slower than a younger adult. This leads to the accumulation of older cells that makes the skin look rough and dry. Beneath the epidermis is the dermis where the collagen and elastin are found.
The strength and elasticity of the skin is attributable to collagen which is a structural protein and elastin that keeps the skin supple and elastic. These two structural components are prone to damage when exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. This accounts for about 80% of the premature aging of the skin.
On top of these, as the skin gets older there is the accompanying: 1. reduction in melanin production which explains susceptibility to skin cancer; 2. avascularization or reduced blood flow therefore less oxygen and l e ; and 3. loss of fats or adipose tissues under the skin that makes skin less supple. Other age-related skin problems also arise like neoplasms (i.e. cherry angiomas, seborrheic keratoses, lentigos (sun spots), and sebaceous hyperplasias.
What can therefore be important to include in an anti aging serum that you can make yourself?
Vitamin C that will boost collagen production.
Avocado oil plus essential oils (i.e. evening primrose, geranium, lavender, and chamomile) that can address dryness.
Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant that put out of action the free-radicals.
A good anti-aging serum for the eyes must contain:
Other essential oils (borage seed, carrot, emu, chamomile
If going after very expensive top of the line brands will hardly touch your skin, pamper your skin with these homemade anti aging serum instead.
