Morrocco Method - Ageless Radiance Anti-Aging Cream
“Love your skin and it will glow with youthful radiance.”
Aging itself is a wonderous and meaningful experience and with every new day, we can embrace renewal, learn from mistakes made, and improve our quality of life.
The canvas of our skin tells stories of adventure, strength, and celebration. It can also show signs of worry, neglect, and exposure to the elements. Although there are intrinsic factors that contribute to the appearance of aging skin, which are deeply tied to our genes, there are also extrinsic environmental factors that we can exercise great influence over - and even reverse - without chemicals, peels, or invasive and risky surgeries.
Our skin is the foundation of the integumentary system, which also includes our nails, hair, nerves, and specialized glands. It provides us with sensation and awareness of our environment and helps us regulate our body temperature. As the largest organ of the body, our skin also helps to protect our vital internal organs. Made up of three layers, the hypodermis, dermis, and epidermis, healthy skin is structurally stable, elastic, resilient, and moisture retentive thanks to key proteins including collagen and elastin as well as compounds known as glycosaminoglycans that help retain moisture.
Although wrinkles, sagging, fine lines and flat and dull skin are natural signs of aging, these marks can be prematurely visible or even caused by lifestyle and environmental factors. The body’s ability to create collagen and elastin diminishes not only with age but is negatively affected by dietary choices, dehydration, and overexposure to harmful UV rays. Too much sun on unprotected skin can cause the elastin protein to become stiff and coiled, which inhibits elasticity and leads to sagging. Lastly, dry, cracked, and damaged skin with diminished keratinocyte cells that help create our epidermal protective layer, can allow harmful microbes to breach the surface of the skin leading to various forms of illness.
Common extrinsic environmental factors that contribute to premature aging of the skin include a poor diet, dehydration, smoking, and overexposure to the sun. In fact, nearly 80% of premature facial aging can be linked to sun damage.
Fortunately, extrinsic environmental factors are largely preventable and even reversible.
Proactive steps you can take to protect your skin from sun damage include sun avoidance, which may mean taking healthy walks just after sunrise or before sunset when UV exposure is minimal, avoiding direct sunlight in the hours nearest noon, and wearing a wide-brimmed hat and a natural sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays when mid-day exposure is unavoidable.
But preventing more sun damage is only half the battle. Reversing the effects of natural and premature aging comes from providing your body what it needs to heal, which internally includes eating antioxidant foods and proper hydration. Externally, much can be done to reduce visible lines, wrinkles, and skin marks through the application of all-natural creams. To inhibit collagenase synthesis and promote collagen production, creams rich with antioxidants help reduce or neutralize free radicals. Creams can also stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis. Plant-derived oils infused in creams are most effective in retaining water and moisturizing the skin, reversing the appearance of aging.
Unfortunately, not all creams are equal. Some creams are not only ineffective but also contain harsh chemicals the inhibit healthy, youthful skin.
