TRICK Your Skin to Look YOUNGER!

Hey! Christy here from Go See Christy Beauty Boutique and today we’re going to talk about: How to “TRICK” your skin into
acting and looking younger. So, when you are a baby, your skin-cell turnover rate
is about once every 5-to-7 days. So, babies and toddlers have young, soft, dewy,
cushy, skin that glows and that is because, about once a week or
so, they get brand new skin. And as we age the time that it takes the skin-cell
turnover rate to go over becomes further and further apart. So, eventually what
happens is it can get all the way up to once every 90 days. And so, that is why
when you look at someone who’s a lot older, they typically have dry, dull,
crepey-looking skin. And that is because they have all the way up to once every
three months of dead skin. So, when you have a lot of dead skin on your face, the
light is absorbed. So, that’s why it gives the appearance of a dull-looking skin.
When you have brand-new skin, you have a even-toned, glowing-looking skin. So, as we
age we also lose a lot of moisture. So, when you put moisturizer on, not only do
you have layers and layers of dead skin, but your Sebaceous Gland, which produces
oil to moisturize your skin, also slows down. So, when you’re adding moisturizer
and you feel like you’re still not getting enough moisturizer,
1. It could be you’re not exfoliating enough and you’re not getting the dead
skin cells off so the moisturizer or serums that you’re using is not getting
absorbed into the new skin. So, that’s one. The other one is, I hear a lot, is you
have to drink a lot more water because your skin is dehydrated. Even though your
skin is the LARGEST organ that we have, it is the LAST organ to get the water. So,
how do you “TRICK” your skin? The more you exfoliate, it triggers your skin into
having to make more new skin cells because you’re
exfoliating that skin. So, that’s one. Try to do it almost every day. Usually people
have sensitive skin, or Rosacea-prone skin, or Acne that have active pustules,
you don’t want to exacerbate that and exfoliate too much. So, 1. Is you need to
exfoliate. 2. Is you need to use the RIGHT exfoliant. So, if you are typically
the average age over 30 who doesn’t have major skincare issues, you need to
increase your exfoliant and use a chemical exfoliant or a chemical-and-physical combination exfoliant to get the dead skin cells off. If you are 25
years and younger, you can get away with just using a physical exfoliant, which is
a scrub that just has beads in it. If it’s a chemical exfoliant, that means it
has Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, and / or Lactic Acid. Any of the AHA’s and BHA
acids in it. And then obviously the physical or combination of physical and
chemical exfoliant is it usually will have some rounded beads in it in a fruit
enzyme solution. So, that is the ways that you can “TRICK” your skin into responding
and actually ACTING and LOOKING younger. So, if you want more information on
exfoliation check out this video right here, which explains the three different
types of exfoliation and how you should exfoliate your face. So, thank you for
