-- laugh lines had deepen and more fine lines appearing, not just around the eyes...but now appearing behind the laugh lines and fine lines appearing across the forehead. Face in general now drier, looking a bit dull, and skin tone was changing. So started to look at over the counter anti-aging products. Found the price and ingredient list a bit surprising...and knew I could do better on both of those issues.
Pumpkin Seed Extract was one of the first things I tried that actually made a difference in a few days. My face actually started to feel firmer along with some of the finer lines disappearing. Would say this lotion is great for skin just starting to show signs of aging.
Pomegranate Peel Extract was the lotion that me go Oh Wow. For my now 50+ skin there was an immediate difference in the appearance not only the fine lines but also with the deeper lines. Skin is brighter and feeling silky soft again.
As we age our skin starts requiring a bit more care to maintain a soft and supple look. Sun exposure, environment factors, and our genetics, bad nutrition is just a few things that affect our aging process. The layers of skin change. Pigment cells (melanocytes) decrease with age, while those that remain grow larger. As the epidermis thins, these pigment cells become more prominent, producing brown areas known as age or liver spots. The epidermis starts thinning, making blood vessels more visible, resulting in dark circles under the eyes, and bagginess can appear there as a result of lessened collagen.
What is in the lotion you are using? Most common ingredient that is used is mineral oil, a petroleum product. It does helps to soften the outer most skin layer and creates a barrier that prevents your skin from losing moisture. It doesn't penetrate deeply nor does it nourish or promote any healing of the skin.
