The term rejuvenation means the extension of life on
something that is otherwise approaching its end. When applied to the human
body, it means the reversal of aging and the promotion of re-growth. When we
speak of skin rejuvenation then, we’re talking about preventing the aging of
the skin, and preserving its health and youthful looks for as long as possible.
Skin rejuvenation is important because it helps make people look younger than
they actually are. Besides the looks aspect, it also helps keep your skin
healthy because it boosts the production of new skin cells. It gets rid of dark
spots and burns that are caused by exposure to the harsh rays of the sun. When
a cosmetic procedure like skin laser goes wrong, rejuvenation is encouraged to
bring back the health of the affected area and heal whatever wounds developed
from the faulty procedure.
If the last example happens to you, your best recourse is to seek for medical
assistance, preferably from a dermatologist or a very trusted skin centre. You
can get a prescription for painkillers, if needed, and medicine that will help
hasten skin repair. It’s definitely simpler if all you want is to have
younger-looking skin because you can just do the following strategies for
promoting skin rejuvenation:
1. Cleansing – The very first thing you must do is to clean
the skin thoroughly. Products you will use afterwards will be more effective
because there’s no more grime to block their active ingredients from
penetrating the skin.
2. Scrubbing and Exfoliating – These are the main methods of
getting the skin to produce healthy skin cells and replace the dead ones that
flake off the top of the skin. Dead skin cells will naturally fall off, but if
you want the rejuvenation process to go on quickly, you can help things by
scrubbing the dead cells off from your body.
You cannot use a loofah or the like on your face though because it is more
sensitive and delicate than the rest of your body. What you should use instead
is a facial wash with microbeads that “scrub” dead skin cells and dirt off the
face. With the top layers scrubbed off, the healthier cells below will be
brought to the fore.
3. Put on moisturizer after you exfoliate. Notice that your
skin turns red after you scrub in the shower; when you scrub too hard, some
areas may be irritated and feel painful when touched. Moisturizing lotion will
help relieve that pain. Most importantly, moisture plus the infused vitamins
and nutrients will help the skin produce young, healthy cells faster.
4. Do all three steps regularly. You don’t have to exfoliate
thoroughly every day though. Just pay attention to how well/bad your skin
reacts to loofah scrubbing and your exfoliating product and establish a routine
5. Your diet should also reflect your desire to have healthy,
beautiful skin. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, especially those rich in
Vitamins C, A, and E. Drink lots and lots of water! You cannot depend on your
moisturizer alone. Also take antioxidants (ex: tea) and avoid processed, chemical-rich
