Have you tested your skin elasticity? Every morning I am experiencing my pillow trace is strong and doesn’t go away quickly, seeing this I feel I’m aging – Facial aging is a natural part of growing older but still sad though. ^^;;
This self ‘Skin Elasticity Test‘ will show how your skin age rates compared to your actual age.
1. My eyes seem to be smaller and swelling than before
2. I feel sagging of my upper eyelids and can see under eye bags
3. I feel my face getting bigger and swelling
4. When I touch/pinch my face with finger I feel lose elasticity and looks dull
5. When I smile, the apples of my cheeks tend to move more ‘outward’ than ‘up’
6. When I have no expression I sometimes hear looking like angry or sad
7. My weight is same but I see my jawline is smoother
8. After laughing, fine lines (especially Laugh lines) don’t fade away instantly
9. When applying foundation, the product sits on my smile line
10. I see the visible pores on my face
If you tick check-list less than 4, your skin is still young & healthy , and between 4~7, the aging started so need an anti-wrinkle care. More than 8? well no need to fear, there are plenty of solutions.
<Another Simple Skin Elasticity Test – Pinch Test>
Just pinch the skin on the back of your hand with your thumb and forefinger and hold it for five seconds. Let go and time how long it takes for the skin to completely flatten back out.
*How to Score:
• 1-2 seconds (individuals under 30)
• 3-4 (individuals who are 30-44)
• 5-9 (individuals who are 45-50)
• 10-15 (individuals who are 60)
• 35-55 (individuals who are 70+)
As we age our skin produces and retains less elastin & collagen, leading to sagging and wrinkling of the skin. So here I am posting for the ‘Good Anti-aging Serums’ to help improve your skin elasticity & firmness with proven results. Let’s find out.
*’Get It Beauty’ collected 100 products from Korean’s most popular & have used most and filtered 9 harmful ingredients – related to ‘Body Burden’ project – which commonly are used in cosmetics & body care products, and the discussion continues about these ingredients.
These are the 17 products have survived from filtering.
*What ingredients are need to consider in anti-wrinkle products?
Collagen is a naturally-occurring chemical in our bodies that contributes to skin elasticity, firmness and some are turning to collagen supplements to attain beautiful skin.
Once you pass the age 30, you lose about 1~2% of collagen per year in the skin in the tissues, result in an increase of wrinkles & fine lines, and decreasing smoothness and suppleness of the skin.
However the collagen molecule is notoriously large, and can’t penetrate the dermis which means doesn’t absorb into skin as well as Collagen supplements – as it does get broken down in the stomach. (meaning it doesn’t work)
Proteins are the fundamental building blocks of skin. Without peptides, skin doesn’t remain intact and the result is loss of firmness, appearance of wrinkles, texture changes, and skin that doesn’t bounce back as it once did.
Peptides have a smaller molecules and easily penetrable in the skin to stimulate collagen production.
*How reliable this information?
