Against a lot of an herb grown - even against the aging of the skin. As an anti-aging ingredient, the plant growth substance kinetin (N6-furfuryladenine) is now attracting attention. In the plant kingdom Kinetin is responsible for the moisture balance and the health of the leaves and delays the aging of the plant cells: If cut leaves are immersed in a solution with kinetin, they retain their green color. Untreated leaves turn brown.
Delay skin aging
Studies have shown that kinetin has a similar effect on human skin cells. Natural changes during the cell aging process are delayed and reversed. Added to this is the potent activity of kinetin as a scavenger of free radicals.
In addition, kinetin reduces the water loss of the skin like no other active ingredient. Because of these properties Kinetin is used in beauty cosmetics for the prevention and reduction of environmental aging of the skin.
Getting older, looking young
From the age of 25, the skin begins to lose its elasticity and elasticity. At the same time the water content decreases. The first visible signs are laugh lines around the corners of the mouth and "crow's feet" around the eyes.
Around the age of 40, important skin energy and metabolic processes slow down: the cells of the epidermis are renewed more slowly and the sebaceous and sweat glands reduce their production. This also changes the skin surface. It is poorly supplied with blood, flabby, rough, dry and brittle, but especially wrinkles form.
The skin surface gets thinner and thinner with age. By pigmentation disorders also form the typical age spots.
Own behavior affects the skin
Symptoms of facial aging are due to up to 80 percent of the effect of UV radiation. Another factor that makes the skin age faster is cigarette smoking.
In addition to the use of kinetin-containing skincare products, one's own behavior can also have a positive effect on the skin's appearance. Supportive act:
- eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
- Drink plenty of water
- sleep well
- Pay attention to a healthy stress level
- ensure adequate sun protection
- Enjoy alcohol and nicotine only in moderation
Conclusion: aging of the skin is unstoppable, but slowing down
By skin-friendly habits and proper care, the skin aging process can not stop, but at least slow down. Because how quickly the skin ages, is also determined by the hereditary predisposition. A good skin care with the right anti-aging additives, sufficient UV protection and the cigarettes dispensed with, ensure that the skin gets longer its elasticity.
