How to boost skin regeneration
The skin has its own cell renewal system that allows it to regenerate and get rid of old cells. However, as we age, this renewal cycle decelerates, changing the appearance and condition of our skin. In fact, young skin regenerates in a cycle of about 20 days. Mature skin, on the other hand, takes longer and longer to do so. The complexion loses its uniformity then pigment spots and fine lines appear. The skin also loses its tone. By the time you are in your thirties, the first signs of slower skin regeneration is apparent. However, there are simple and easy ways to counter the signs of aging and to accelerate cell renewal.
Prevent the signs of aging
First, a little prevention! Avoid sun exposure as much as possible year round. If you have to be outside, make sure you apply sunscreen regularly to protect your skin from UVB and UVA rays. The effects of a healthy diet will also be reflected on your skin. When your skin is well nourished, it becomes more radiant. Choose foods containing Vitamin C such as citrus fruits. Limit your alcohol consumption and drink more water which is necessary for whole body hydration. Also, be careful with tobacco! Smoking narrows the blood vessels in your face, preventing your skin cells from receiving nourishment and slowing down cell renewal.
Cleaning your skin for better cell renewal
Skin cleansing should be done twice a day, morning and evening with a good cleanser formulated for your skin type. This will ensure better cell renewal by eliminating impurities such as sebum, toxins, etc. Follow with an alcohol-free toner that will improve your skin’s radiance and tighten pores. Above all, never forget to remove your makeup, even after a long day. Makeup clogs pores, promotes sebum accumulation, and dries out the skin. For effective cleansing, start by removing makeup and follow with washing and toning.
Exfoliation, an essential step
To remove dead facial skin cells, consider treating your skin at least once a week to a gentle exfoliation. CHANV Facial Scrub deeply cleanses without damaging your skin’s moisture barrier. Made from hemp, it also contains rosewood essential oil. Rosewood essential oil is known to fight wrinkles and skin problems as well as contribute to cell renewal. In addition, our facial scrub contains pink grapefruit essential oil which detoxifies and firms the epidermis not to mention its stimulating effect on delicate skin tissue.
Keep your skin hydrated
At any age, the skin must be well hydrated to be healthy and radiant in all seasons, whether you have dry or oily skin. Good hydration also allows the cells to regenerate better and to restore the hydrolipidic balance of your skin. In addition to drinking enough water, apply a moisturizing lotion or cream formulated for your skin type twice a day.
