How to take care of the skin for a beautiful face

Come curare la pelle per un viso splendido
Let's try to understand the best methods to keep the dermis elastic and compact even after the 'door'. The skin is made up of three layers, namely the hypodermis, a predominantly fatty tissue, very active and rich in hormones and vitamins, the dermis, about 4 millimeters thick with fibers, blood vessels, hyaluronic acid, collagen and much more, and the epidermis, i.e. the superficial layer that we all see, and where the creams on the market today go to work.

The aesthetic aspects of the skin

In practice, the epidermis gives the face an appearance of softness, smoothness and luminosity (provided it is healthy), the dermis gives a rosy appearance, elasticity and compactness, while the innermost layer composed of adipose tissue gives fullness and outlines the features of the face. In fact, when the years begin to take their toll, the fat inside the hypodermis is reduced, even by a lot, giving the face a sunken appearance and, due to the force of gravity, less toned. For skin care we must first of all start from subcutaneous nourishment, to get all the nourishment required and necessary to maintain a luxuriant appearance through the blood vessels. The fibers are mostly composed of proteins, which must be replenished every day with an adequate diet. The dietary style must therefore include all types of food, while an excessively restrictive or irregular diet or one that is mainly based on 'junk' food certainly does not help to nourish the dermis correctly. And here are the first wrinkles... Skin elasticity is put to the test every day by the sun's rays, and for this reason protection factors are strongly recommended, not only during the summer; for example, it would be advisable to use a foundation with a factor of 15 or higher, even in winter, especially if you work outdoors, if you often go to the ski slopes or even simply if you jog outdoors. Even free radicals are enemies of a turgid and elastic skin. The best foods are vegetables, especially tomatoes and carrots, but also citrus fruits and olive oil. For those who are unable to follow a varied and healthy diet every day, there are various supplements on the market that are very valid and rich in antioxidants.

Cleansing and hydrating: the basics

Skin cleansing is a fundamental part of a correct treatment to avoid premature wrinkles or a dull and marked complexion. We recommend specific products that pamper the skin without attacking it. In this case we will go to act on the epidermis, or the superficial layer. The cosmetics to be preferred are those that nourish the skin barrier, which sends precise messages to the intermediate layer, i.e. the dermis, such as the request to work more intensely with dermal cells and fibroblasts. The formulations should contain active ingredients to protect cells and to restore intracellular fat, with ceramides, polyunsaturated fats, phospholipids and so on, which also act to rebuild the natural skin hydration factor (NMF). Daily cleansing awakens the complexion, removes toxins present on the epidermis, dust, bacteria and pathogens present in the air and prepares the skin to receive the right nourishment. You can use a specific milk or oil, followed by a non-aggressive neutral soap. Washing well every morning will avoid periodically resorting to scrubs which are in fact too aggressive for the skin of the face, which is very thin.

The importance of hormones

A lack of estrogen, typical of the menopause, unfortunately takes away the elasticity, firmness and turgidity of the features of the face, and therefore it is necessary to run for cover by eating in a healthy and balanced way, and remembering that the innermost layer of the skin is mainly composed of fats, and for this reason they shouldn't be removed from the daily diet, but you simply have to prefer the 'good' ones (HDL cholesterol), limiting the harmful ones (LDL). So you can make use (sparingly) of vegetable fats such as extra virgin olive oil, linseed oil, sunflower oil and so on.
