When it comes to growing old gracefully, everyone has a different definition of what that might mean.
For some people, it means embracing the fine lines and wrinkles, along with the grey hairs. Others prefer to delay the effects of ageing.
The fact is that there is no right or wrong way to grow old gracefully; there’s only one simple rule:
Be and feel like the best version of yourself.
If you’re keen to cheat time and delay the aesthetic effects of ageing, you might be interested in a new addition to what some call the “inner circle” of an anti-ageing-focused skincare routine – growth factors.
Growth factors are often confused with stem cells but they’re very different. Scientists can use stem cells to grow other cells of any type. If you’re using them in your skincare, they’re usually derived from plants and merely function as an antioxidant.
Growth factors, however, are proteins found naturally in your body. They can attach to the receptors of other cells and deliver commands that include “rejuvenate”.
As you get older, your natural growth factors start to decline in numbers, which results in ageing, and the signs thereof.
Luckily, you can now stimulate your growth factors by including them in your skincare routine.
The first two are Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) and Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF). They stimulate the growth of fibroblasts – the cells that produce collagen and elastin. The third type is Insulin Growth Factor-1 that helps to boost the efficacy of the former.
The serum also makes use of collagen-encouraging peptides and mega-moisturising hyaluronic acid. In short, if you’re wanting a firmer, less wrinkled and plump-looking complexion, Lamelle’s serum is the way to go.
In the same way that it’s important to eat a balanced diet, good skin health requires a number of factors to stay youthful and healthy.
If you’re unsure about which products or treatments would work best for you, why not make an appointment with one of the doctors at Skin Renewal?
They can help you find the beauty routine that’ll reveal your most radiant complexion yet.
