The appearance of fine lines can make any woman start to worry. Dealing with the stress of going through cancer treatment and aging, irritated skin can sometimes be too much to handle. Some patients going through cancer treatment have very little symptoms while some patients have to face red, irritated, burns, rashes, and more negative side effects. So here is a great regimen for both everyday people and people going through cancer treatment!
One of the first steps is Exfoliation-
The most outer layer of the skin is known as the stratum corneum. Dead skin cells on the outer most layer of our skin cause dull complexion, which in turn takes away from a glowing, youthful appearance. By exfoliating your face at least three times a week help keep the skin healthy looking while getting dead skin. Also by exfoliating it stimulates collagen and elastic production within your skin which also helps your skin appear younger and healthier. By removing the dead skin cells you will promote newer skin to grow out!
The dermal part of your skin is around 70 percent water, with around 50 percent consisting of your body’s total hyaluronic acid allowance. It keeps the skin hydrated to look attractive and healthy. When ones hyaluronic acid decreases the person is left with some unfortunate side effects such as dehydrated, rough looking skin. Your skin can even become flaky, and make the appearance of fine lines worse. Hyaluronic acid can be too large to penetrate the skin therefore it needs to contain sodium hyaluronate to work.
Research has shown that vitamin C concentrations as low as .6 percent provide anti-aging benefits and antioxidants to the skin. There are so many great benefits that come from using Vitamin C! For both your skin and your overall health, vitamin C is a must. Only concern with Vitamin C is make sure you do not use it in high concentrations due to the tendency to actually burn the skin. Vitamin C overall will help hydrate your skin and reverse the side effects of aging skin. One of the best things about vitamin C is it is all natural and cancer patients friendly.
Overall stick to all natural products and do your research. Don’t be fooled by labels or marketing promotions! Do the research and look at all ingredients within the product before applying anything to your skin.
