When it comes to the skin of celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, everyone knows that there are many factors that influence that smooth, blemish-free complexion – including the infamous Photoshop. However, there are some truths that we can adopt in our daily lives and, of course, improve our care routine🇧🇷
For this, the help of a dermatologist, and we rely on the insights of Dr. Simone Neridermatologist and trichologist, to understand how to have skin like the eternal Rachel from Friends.
SPECIAL CARE FOR MATURE SKIN
For the doctor, from the age of 30 the skin already begins to show the action of time and the sun, starting the decline in the formation of collagen (which gives structure to the skin). “At this stage, I recommend procedures that stimulate the formation of collagen itself as a collagen biostimulator, technologies such as radiofrequency for mild to moderate sagging, in addition to starting with the application of cutaneous fillers based on hyaluronic acid to maintain the facial structure”, she explains. “Botulinum toxin should always be part of this phase of life, every six months.”
In the following decade, at 40, the speed of the aging curve increases, especially in women. This happens for two reasons: the first is the action of a metalloproteinase that starts to destroy the collagen fibers, and the second is action of menopausewhich directly impacts skin firmness due to the lack of estrogen.
“Added to this, there begins to be a consumption of facial fat and a reabsorption of the bones of the face, similar to the process that occurs in the bones of the body, osteopenia and osteoporosis”, she continues.
The result of this is the formation of wrinkles and sagging on the face and body – to a degree that will vary depending on each woman’s lifestyle and genetics.
THE IDEAL SKINCARE FOR MATURE WOMEN
Just like Jennifer Aniston, every woman who wants to age well needs to have a skin care routine. For Simone, the ideal skincare for mature women consists of:
“The ideal is to take good care of skin hygiene to remove impurities that clog pores and impact the appearance of acne and premature aging”, he explains.
“Adequate hydration of the skin is an important step to keep the protective lipid mantle of the skin up to date. Always good to remember that even oily skin needs hydration, so visiting the dermatologist is ideal to choose the best product for each skin type, ”he says.
“Protecting your skin against ultraviolet radiation from the sun will complete your Skincare routine, preventing blemishes, wrinkles and the dreaded skin cancer”, he continues.
JENNIFER ANISTON’S ROUTINE
We’re not talking about Jennifer Aniston for nothing. Recently, Shani Dardenbeautician who takes care of the skin of the actress and other Hollywood stars, told the North American Glamor magazine what is not lacking in the care of the protagonist of Friends.
The first point is precisely photoprotection, which can never fail! “Sun exposure is the number one cause of aging, so you want to make sure you’re taking care of your skin,” he says. Incidentally, this combo includes care for the hands and lips, which must also be properly protected.
Another important point is invest in vitamin C to add an extra layer of protection to the skin. Other than that, Shani’s third tip is not to overdo it or drastically change your skincare routine.
“Many people ask me how they should adapt their care routines in the summer, for example. If you’re using the right products, you don’t need to change a lot. Because of the temperatures, your skin can become more oily. Therefore, one of the things I usually recommend is to replace your moisturizer with a lighter one”, he explains.
