Fine lines and wrinkles!

We have all heard, and some of us have fine lines and wrinkles, they nearly always referred to together. Let’s look at the difference between the two.

Yes they appear in different areas of the face, they are also treated differently, both will have different types of facial rejuvenation products. Let me help you to understand the differences before you begin researching different product treatments.

Fine lines often indicate the beginning of your skin’s aging process.

They are small and shallow and may be hard to see initially. Fine lines on the face are often associated with repetitive movements, such as squinting, smiling, laughing or frowning.

Fine lines are so superficial that they respond to treatments faster and easier than deeper wrinkles would. Wrinkles will come when fine lines are not treated quickly and they begin to deepen, but they also tend to form in different areas of the face, often progressing into facial folds.


Fine Lines and Expression Lines

facial rejuvenationExpression lines are so called because they are commonly caused by the facial expressions that you make. They are so superficial that they usually involve only the topmost layer of your skin. You might think nothing of them when you first notice them.

Fine lines are most frequently found around the eyes and the mouth. You may also see them at the outer corners of your eyes and in people with very thin skin under your eyes.

You may also notice small creases at the corner of your mouth or around your lips, a slight crease between your eyebrows, and tiny lines beginning to show the furrows in your forehead.


Causes of Fine Lines

  • Smoking
  • Fair Skin
  • Sun Exposure
  • Genetics

If fine lines stay on your face and deepen into wrinkles as you get older because the collagen and elastin beneath the surface of your skin begin the breakdown that is typical with aging.

This means that your skin requires products that will assist moisture and collagen enhancement to repair.

The perfect solution is to use the Regenisis Vitamin Serum together with Collagen Elixir for optimal benefits. Right now we have have a special offer to get both at the discount price. Click here to order.

Do We Need To Take Collagen & Increase Our Elastin?

layers of skinThe skin, a wonder of life that constantly renews itself, consists of three layers. The first, the hypodermis, is the deepest layer. The dermis is the intermediate layer, and the epidermis is the third and last, making up the outer shell that creates our aesthetic appearance.

But the skin also possesses a mysterious structure. This structure serves as a kind of “glue” that ensures that all skin cells adhere perfectly. This perfect glue is called “collagen” and is the most important skin protein.

What is collagen?

collagen benefits for skinCollagen is a group of proteins that together form the building blocks for your skin (and connective tissue); it makes up the majority of the dermis, the layer of skin just below the surface. Collagen gives our skin volume, flexibility and strength, and makes it look healthy and young.

What does collagen do?

Collagen gives skin its firmness, elasticity and resistance, creating important support for facial muscles and preventing the formation of wrinkles in the form of deep furrows. As our skin ages our natural production of collagen changes as well. The ‘glue ages’ and our skin becomes wrinkled – much like a balloon that creases when it loses air.

Now for the other part of the equation…

retinolCollagen is only half the story when it comes to youthful skin – another essential component is elastin, a protein that helps maintain your skin’s elasticity. Your body does not produce elastin after puberty so applying a natural retinol is one of the best ways to support your skins elasticity. It’s important you choose a natural source of retinol to minimise the toxic load on your body.

Retinol is effective because it is naturally absorbed through epidermis to the deeper layers that contain collagen and elastin. Here it helps to improve the production of new skin cell growth and repairs damaged cells caused by the sun, pollution and chemicals.

How to defy ‘ageing’ skin

collagen-capsulesWhen we say our skin is ‘ageing’, what we’re actually seeing is the naturally occurring collagen and elastin breaking down. The effects of this are wrinkles, sagginess and lines. LifeCell Collagen Booster capsules contain compounds and antioxidants to help us naturally build up and restore collagen. They contain three of the most powerful anti-ageing agents: collagen, of course, plus resveratrol and hyaluronic acid. Combined, these superheroes not only make us look younger, but feel younger on the inside.

CELL Infuse Naturel RetinylFor improving skin elasticity without chemicals, I developed CELL Infuse Natural Retinyl. The active ingredient, buriti, is rich in essential fatty acids assisting elasticity and firmness, and it greatly supports the production of collagen. The formulation also includes Vitamin E-rich beta-carotene and Vitamin C, both powerful antioxidants. CELL Infuse Natural Retinyl penetrates deep down into the lower layers of the epidermis to support collagen production and deeply moisturise your skin, making it look fresh and vibrant, no matter what your age.
