More vitamin C and foods containing hyaluronic acid
Collagen and elastin are proteins that preserve youthfulness and elasticity of the skin and prevent the appearance of wrinkles. Experts have described 28 types of collagen, differing in amino acid sequence. The principal role in maintaining tone is played by type I – it has the highest mechanical strength and type III – a “young” protein. After 30, collagen synthesis decreases, fibers lose elasticity, and type III protein practically ceases to be produced.
How to preserve youthfulness of the skin in such a situation with the help of nutrition?
Collagen synthesis is stimulated by vitamins A and C. They are found in large quantities in citrus fruits, black currants, and sauerkraut.
Give preference to foods containing hyaluronic acid (tofu, chicken broth) and a good amino acid composition (liver, seafood, wheat germ). For a list of hazardous skin products see
Take medications that stimulate collagen production – there is a large selection of these supplements today. Passing through the digestive tract, they break down into short peptide chains, and then into individual amino acids. It is the building block for new collagen fibers.
Include Omega-3-Rich Foods in Your Diet
Polyunsaturated fatty acids prevent the development of allergic reactions, preserve collagen and elastin, stimulating their production, and also have wound healing properties and help fight dermatitis. In addition, Omega-3s protect the dermis from oxygen oxidation. Polyunsaturated fatty acids are found in large quantities in fatty fish, avocados, nuts, and unrefined vegetable oils.
Make surface peels based on fruit acids
After 30, pay attention to peels with fruit acids. At a concentration of 20 to 70%, they act on the superficial and deeper layer, stimulating the renewal of the epidermis and removing dead cells. With regular use, peels reduce the stratum corneum, eliminating small defects: irregularities, redness, superficial pigmentation. Many fruit acids are used in cosmetology. The most popular is glycolic. It is found in sugar cane and green grapes. Fruit acid peels for home use can be found in health centers and beauty salons.

Hardware and injection techniques
Clear lift face resurfacing without damaging the upper layer of the skin can be performed from the age of 25. It is based on the action of a laser beam that penetrates into the dermis up to 4 mm and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin (proteins that act as a “framework”). In addition to the pronounced lifting effect, the procedure fights against enlarged pores and mimic wrinkles. Grinding is practically painless and does not require special preparation – there is no rehabilitation period after Clear Lift. The procedure takes about 30 minutes. The full course consists of 4-7 sessions.
Great procedure! Especially recommended for those who suffer from pigmentation and enlarged pores. During the procedure, the light flux acts on the deep layers of the skin – due to which cell renewal is stimulated. Suitable for any type. The number of sessions is selected individually. The procedures are comfortable and painless, after completion you can apply makeup and return to your usual life. AFT-lift copes well with fine wrinkles and enlarged pores, normalizes blood circulation and improves complexion.
A good way to prevent and correct age-related changes. Biorevitalization fights against dryness and dehydration of the skin, helps to get rid of the first wrinkles and normalize the work of the sebaceous glands. During the procedure, a preparation based on hyaluronic acid is injected under the skin using the thinnest needle, the synthesis of which decreases after 30 years. It is recommended to carry out biorevitalization before the heating season, that is, in the fall or at the beginning of winter.
Superficial and midline peels
Autumn is coming soon, the sun will not be so active, which means you can open the peeling season. This is the easiest way to preserve youthfulness and beauty of the skin. Medium peels (retinol, glycolic, peeling based on trichloroacetic acid) improve the complexion, even out the relief, and reduce the number of fine wrinkles and age spots.
This procedure needs no introduction – cosmetologists have long loved it for its ease of implementation and excellent results. It consists in the introduction of therapeutic “cocktails” under the skin, the composition of which is selected individually depending on the condition and needs of the skin of each person. There are many indications for mesotherapy: wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity and firmness, puffiness under the eyes, rosacea and acne. For tangible results, it is recommended to take the course.
