Natural Anti Ageing Therapies: Why Should You prefer them?

Anti Aging

We all would love to stay young forever and getting old is one of our major concerns. This area naturally is of great interest to the cosmetic industry that claims to reverse the signs of ageing through various age reversal treatments. However, ageing is a natural phenomenon and an intrinsic feature of life. There is a variety of anti-aging therapies available in the market.  We often place our confidence in the claims made by the manufacturer. Many people even get ready to go under the knife to reverse the damage caused due do ageing.  However, it is important to understand that not all therapies that claim to reverse the signs of ageing are safe.

 In this article we have highlighted how   popular age reversal treatments work and some of the risks associated with them. This will help you to take a conscious decision before opting for any of the anti-aging therapies

1. Anti-Ageing Hormones Are Not Proven To Be Effective Yet

Anti Ageing Hormones

Hormones are the chemicals secreted in our body and are involved in various physiological functions such as metabolism, immune function, sexual reproduction, and growth. Some hormones especially the human grow hormones, progesterone in men, and oestrogen in women decrease as we age.

Although several age reversal therapies claim that hormonal therapy, can reverse the signs of ageing, to date no research has confirmed this. Our body maintains the right balance of hormone naturally. However, when you decide to take extra hormones just to look younger, you surely create an artificial imbalance that body cannot cope with. Your body may actually react to it causing some undesired effects. 

2. Laser Resurfacing Therapy Can Cause Serious Side Effects

Laser Resurfacing Therapy

Use of laser therapy is one of the most popularly used treatments to get rid of signs of ageing such as wrinkles and pigmentation. Laser resurfacing treatment has been shown to be effective in reducing the signs of ageing through processes such as dermal layer remodeling, collagen stimulation, regeneration of cellular materials, etc . However, along with its benefits laser treatment may also cause some serious side effects, such as persistent erythema, hypo- or hyperpigmentation, infection or scarring.  

3. Botulin is a Costly Affair

Botulin

Botulinum toxin (BTX) can neither improve the texture of skin nor can it prevent the skin ageing process. However, regular BTX injections can slow down the visible signs of skin ageing such as facial lines and fine wrinkles. However, administration of Botulin is very critical. It needs thorough understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the muscles and possible alterations in skin that may occur. So, obviously it has to be done through extremely skilled and professional hands and that’s makes it a costly affair.

4. Skin Rejuvenation – Chemical Peeling Needs a Long Recovery Time

Skin Rejuvenation Chemical Peeling

Chemical peeling is becoming increasingly popular for the treatment of skin rejuvenation where it can improve damaged skin and fine wrinkles.  Chemical peeling removes the top layers of skin so that the new skin that grows back is younger-looking. However chemical peeling is a type of chemosurgery and so there are risks associated with this procedure as with other surgical procedures. Chemical peel may result in scarring and infections. Deep chemical peels that are used to correct severe damage or heavy wrinkles require a longer recovery period within which it is extremely dangerous to get sun exposure.  

Before trying any of these therapies first make sure to have a healthy lifestyle, be physically active, eat right food and manage your stress. You may opt for some natural therapies that reverse the signs of skin ageing and these include facials, body wraps and polishes. For better results look for therapies that use highest quality natural ingredients with anti-ageing properties. If you are looking for a best spa in Mumbai that offers age reversal treatment with natural ingredients, you can try Age Reversal Programme offered at Four Fountains De-stress spa in Mumbai.

 

5 Beauty Disasters You Suffer Due to Stress

Beauty Disaster

Being under too much stress can eventually take a toll on your health. Stress has been co-related to several physical and mental health problems. But did you know that stress can also lead to problems, such as acne, brittle nails or even hair loss?
Modern work culture demands a presentable physical appearance at workplaces. This is the possible reason many young professionals are very careful about their looks. So, while you take efforts to work on your looks, just pause for a while and observe closely if any of the beauty disasters you have been battling lately are signaling the need to de-stress.

Here are six ways too much stress can mess with your beauty and looks.

 

Hair Fall

Hair Fall

At times we casually curse the weather or even our shampoo for our messed up mane, but little do we care to blame our stressful lifestyle. When we are under too much stress, a large number of hair follicles go into a resting phase. Within a few months, affected hair starts to fall out suddenly on simply combing or washing the hair. This could happen as the body simply shuts down production of hair during periods of stress as it is not necessary for survival.

 

Dandruff

Dandruff
Imagine an embarrassing moment when an office colleague stares at the white flakes fallen on your clothes! Dandruff is a common complaint and is suffered by as many as 50 percent of the population at some time during their life. It causes significant discomfort due to itching in the scalp. Experts suggest that too much stress is one the most common factors that aggravate scalp itchiness and dandruff.

 

Acne

According to scientists higher levels of sebum (oil) produced during stressful times could be responsible for acne flare-ups. In one study nearly 67 percent of final year medicine students reported acne flare-ups due to increased stress of examinations. Several studies have shown that psychological stress can alter the immune functions of the skin and thus be responsible for acne production. Fight acne with healing facial

 

Skin Problems

Nail Chipping

Nail-biting is one of the nervous-habits, which surely is embarrassing when done in public or at workplaces. In extreme cases nail-biting habits can cause injuries to surrounding tissues.

 

Wrinkles

Do you believe in the fairy tales that talk of transformation of an old woman into a young princess?

Ageing is inevitable; nothing can stop the natural phenomenon of getting old. However, you can take some preventive measures to stop the damage caused to skin due to ageing.

As we age, the skin starts to get thinner, brittle and loses its elasticity. Ageing causes some changes in the anatomy of the inner layers of skin that result in wrinkles, which is the most distinct sign of ageing. Many people go under knife, lasers, or chemical peels, to get rid of skin wrinkles. However, these are expensive therapies and only lessen the appearance. Here is a list of six inexpensive and natural remedies for wrinkles.

 

Egg White

Egg white contains proteins that help in tissue repair and growth. It also acts as a good agent for solving skin issues like blackheads, acne and pimples. A facial massage with egg white done for 15-20 minutes can give you a healthy and younger looking skin.

 

Fruits and Vegetables 

Fruits

Fresh fruits and vegetables are great for eliminating toxins and lifting up the quality of your skin. Ageing skin shows reduced levels of vitamin C therefore consuming fruits that are rich in vitamin C can be helpful.

 

Olive Oil

Olive Oil

Olive oil is believed to be vigorous and a great boon to your skin. A placid massage of olive oil on your face before going to bed can give you soft and supple skin.

 

Lemon Juice

Massage with lemon juice is a great remedy to reduce wrinkles. Being citric in nature, it helps in reduction of wrinkles and other signs of ageing to a certain extent.

 

Sunscreen 

sun protect

Sun exposure is considered to be the most common cause of damage caused to skin. Regular use of sunscreen can protect you from the harmful effects of UV rays that speed up the aging process.

 

Facial Massage

Facial

Massage relaxes the facial muscles and increases the blood circulation. Massaging the face using oil is believed to increase the collagen production that is reduced as we age. This repairs the skin damage and helps the skin to regain its elasticity. Try a Facial Massage at a reputed spa, if you are looking for a professional treatment. Sometimes, a soothing massage is all what it takes to feel good and young.

Remember, to look young it is very important to feel youthful. And you can only feel youthful when you deliberately plan to be so.
