Did you know stress causes your skin to age at an alarming rate. Insider.com explains it like this
"Stress can cause wrinkles to form because high amounts of cortisol, the stress hormone, can break down the skin's collagen and elastin. Research has found that chronic stress can increase inflammation, causing skin aging and accelerating the formation of wrinkles."
So, what do you do if you don't want botox to stop those wrinkles?
AKTIV SKINCARE HAS A 3 STEP SOLUTION!
DOUBLE CLEANSE WITH A CLEANSER THAT HAS AN AHA
ADD IN A VITAMIN C SERUM
WEAR YOUR SPF
1. DOUBLE CLEANSING
1st you will need to perform your cleanse with your regular cleanser to get the skin clean and ready for your exfoliating cleanser. Once your skin is clean use your AHA cleanser (AKTIV VITAcleanse) and manipulate the cleanser in circular motions no less than 3-5 minutes. The AHA's in the cleanser will help remove the surface of your skin so that new, more evenly pigmented skin cells may generate and take their place. After use, you'll likely notice that your skin is smoother to the touch with softened wrinkles.
2. ADD IN A VITAMIN C SERUM
After your AHA cleanse you will ABSOLUTELY NEED a vitamin C serum. Vitamin C repairs damaged cells and restores free radical damage caused by stress. You will need to use a Vitamin C serum morning and night.
3. WEAR YOUR SPF
One of the most preventative measures to prevent accelerated aging is to wear your SPF. Each morning after your moisturizer make sure to put on an SPF that blocks UVA & UVB damage. This will fight adding any additional free radicals from being added to the already producing free radicals caused by stress.
