Age Spots

Age spots are flat brown spots that can appear anywhere on the body as it ages. They are also called liver spots. Most age spots appear on the face, neck, and hands. Most people who have significant numbers of age spots live in sunny climates or have had excessive sun exposure. Consuming alcohol increases lipofuscin formation.

This helps in removal of age spots:
* Emu oil has shown good results on brown spots and helps to get rid of age spots.
* Limit sun exposure.

Age spots may appear in a cluster, or alone. A medical physician, such as a dermatologist, can verify whether a spot on the skin is an age spot, or a more serious mark. An age spot is simply an area of increased pigmentation in the skin, and is usually flat and oval shaped. A physician can determine whether a spot on the skin presents a health risk, such as a skin cancer, or whether it is a harmless age spot. Sunscreens are very helpful in preventing age spots all together. When skin is unprotected, UV rays accelerate the production of melanin in the skin.

Age spots, while they are most commonly caused by skin exposure, can also appear due to the increased melanin production associated with aging. Genetics also contribute to the development of age spots. A person with fair skin or freckles may be more susceptible to age spots, as lighter skin typically has less melanin, and therefore less natural protection from the sun’s rays.

Dehydrated Skin

Surface dehydration is a crippling enemy of the skin affecting up to 98% of the populations in varying degrees, and is associated with problems as diverse as scaly, taut skin, superficial lines and premature aging. How the skin is moiturized, how water is lost from the horny layer, and ways to prevent water loss.

The horny layer provides the clue to surface dehydration. Since one of the major functions of the skin is to provide a barrier against moisture infiltration, and because hydrophobic fats in the horny layer constitute this barrier, wetting the epidermis does not allow moisture into the skin. The horny layer, then, prevents transfer in both directions. Surface dehydration can occur for several reasons:

Diuretics and many cold and flu remedies that dry up mucous have their side-effects on the skin’s surface. The superficial wetting only impregnates squamous cells, and the constant evaporation of water can itself cause severe dehydration and fissures to form in the horny layer.

The friction and heat of hot water remove sebum from the skin’s surface, inviting capillary damage and dehydration. It transfers water from the interior of the cell to the interstitial fluid, creating water retention and bloating at the same time.Oil-in-water (o/w) emulsions with a high water content: tend to evaporate easily and may accelerate dehydration by drying the epidermal surface. Caution must be exercised because they attract moisture indiscriminately and under certain conditions may draw water from lower skin layers. Dehydration means your skin is lacking moisture but not oil. In dehydrated skin becomes tight and irritated.

3. Smoking is very devitalising and dehydrating on your skin. Moisturize. This light, exfoliating mask makes skin more receptive to moisture.
5. Wash only with tepid water (hot water causes moisture evaporation), and look for moisture boosting ingredients like: Phospholipids, sorbitol, and panthenol etc.
6. Drink atleast 8 – 10 glass of water daily.
Strain and cool the water. Wash face with the cool cabbage water. It’s great for Nourishing the Skin. The nutrients from the cabbage nourish the skin.
