You don't have to go through with a face-lift in order to rejuvenate your appearance. There are a bunch of methods to brighten up your face. Some of them are natural do-it-yourself remedies you can do at home, while the others involve going to a doctor's office.
Here is a brief overview of some of the popular skin rejuvenation treatments to liven up your face.
A sugar scrub is used to moisten and exfoliate the skin. The scrub is made with oil and sugar. The oil is often a mixture of a base oil and a fragrance oil.
The first benefit to using a sugar scrub is that the sugar granules are gentle on your face, yet they are still coarse enough to remove dead skin. This makes sugar the perfect exfoliating material.
Secondly, sugar contains a chemical called glycolic acid. This acid draws moisture in. This is beneficial because it hydrates your skin.
You can make your own sugar scrub or purchase one in a store. If you decide to make your own, here is a good recipe:
- 1 Cup Organic Sugar
- ½ Cup Grapeseed Oil
- ½ teaspoon lavender oil
Mix the ingredients in a bowl then store in a glass jar.
Alpha Lipoic Acid Cream
Alpha Lipoic Acid is an anti-oxidant. The reason people use it in skin creams is because it is thought to help prevent against sun damage. In addition to oxidative damage, alpha lipoic acid is believed to help against puffiness and blotchiness. You can find ALA cream in most cosmetic stores.
This is a process that involves injecting a "filler" into the area around the wrinkles. Most fillers need to be reapplied every year or so. There are a variety of different materials used. Some of them may cause an allergic reaction in particular individuals.
The filler is injected into the facial tissue by a doctor. This is not a method that should be attempted at home.
This method involves using lasers to heat up the dermis layer of your skin. The result is that there is an increase in collagen production. The treatment is popular because there are no injections or fillers, yet there is a visible improvement after one session. It is used to treat large pores, redness, and even wrinkles. The treatment is done in a doctor's office and there is no recovery time. The patient is good to go as soon as the procedure is done.
