Considering a face lift? It can be quite effective in the rejuvenation and aging process of the skin. It can be a simple procedure of skin excision or a more complicated, invasive method which could include manipulation of fat and muscles to the face. There are newer techniques available that will cut down recovery time and be less traumatic. If you are thinking of having a similar procedure, it is vitally important to seek a surgeon that has a full understanding of the anatomy of the neck and face.
As we go through the aging process, several changes start to take place. You loose elasticity in the skin and will experience a decrease of collagen support. Facial bones will be remodeled along with skin and fat changes that will make your face appear older.
Face lifts are invasive and in order to get maximum results it will require modification of SMAS platysma component through placation, suspension and or resection. This will provide the durable framework which the skin will then be re-applied over the face. Simply stretching the skin will not give you good results and may even cause skin to die, cause scarring and have an appearance that you had facial surgery.
Before any type of surgery you will have to consult with your doctor first. This is the time to ask many questions and get a plan of action together. You will then know what to expect and discuss any fears you may have about the surgery.
If this type of procedure ends up not being something you decide to do, there are other ways to give yourself an instant face lift, rejuvenate your skin and turn back the clock without being invasive, having recovery time and the high cost of surgery.
Ruddy skin-that is, a preplexion-has much in common with fair skin. Both tend to be dry, sensitive and prone to sun damage. And like fair skinned folks, people with ruddy skin are more likely to develop rosacea, a chronic but treatable condition that commonly affects the skin of people of Northern European descent.
It’s possible to have a ruddy complexion without developing rosacea. But whether you have plain ruddy skin or rosacea, a gentle skin care routine will help keep your complexion calm.
These tips can help jeep your complexion at its loveliest.
Use a gentle soap. If your skin isn’t excessively dry, choose a soap without added emollients. You may also try a foaming face wash. If your skin is very dry, opt for a soap with added emollients.
Above all, avoid antibacterial and deodorant soaps, as they can irritate your skin.
The right way to wash. If you have ruddy skin, avoid abrasive facial pads or washcloths-they’re tough on your complexion. Rather, massage your cleanser into your skin with your fingertips, then rinse well with plenty of lukewarm water. Cleanser residue can cause irritation. Then gently blot your face dry with a thick cotton towel.
Nix alcohol-based products. If your ruddy skin is normal or dry, avoid toners or astringents. But if you have oily skin or combination skin, with an oily forehead, nose and chin (the T-zone), and feel you must use one of these products, opt for an alcohol-free toner.
Moisturize if you must. The perception is that people of Northern European descent have drier skin. But ruddy skin can be oily or dry. Your T-zone may produce enough oil that you don’t need to use a moisturizer in this area. But with ruddy skin, it’s often necessary to moisturize the cheeks.
Some Do’s and Don’ts for Ruddy Skin
Use a mild cleanser.
Wear shades of makeup that can help downplay ruddiness.
Camouflage extreme ruddiness by using a green underbase.
Apply a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or above every day.
See a dermatologist if you suspect rosacea.
Cleanse skin with abrasive products.
Use astringents and toners. If you feel you must use these products, opt for an alcohol-free toner.
Moisturize your T-zone if it’s oily.
Forget to use sunscreen every time you go outdoors.

When we think about taking vitamin C, we usually take it to improve our bodies health. However, using vitamin C for skin care can actually give your skin perfection. It can help fight against fine lines, wrinkles and the overall aging process of your skin. Vitamin C will act like an anti-oxidant, stabilizing free radicals, and help to produce and re-build collagen. Believe it or not, vitamin C actually works.
Because vitamin C comes in many different forms, it’s not easy to find and the effectiveness will depend on how it’s stored, it’s concentration and the type of vitamin C.
If you don’t have sensitive skin, a more natural form of vitamin C, such as L-ascorbic, will work well. However, it’s important to mention that you need to know how it was stored and how old it is, because it can be irritating to the skin and oxidizes when exposed to the air.
Another derivative form of vitamin C is Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP). This form is less irritating, doesn’t oxidize as quickly, and is being used more and more in skin care products.
Ascorbyl Palmitate is also a vitamin C derivative. Similar to MAP, but requires higher levels to have producing collagen effects of vitamin C.
Vitamin C can be a very effective skin care ingredient. When looking for a lotion or cleanser, MAP would be the less damaging and safest derivative of vitamin C for the skin. If you’re looking to put back radiance to your skin, capsules of L-ascorbic acid can be used for a period of time.
It’s important to note that a line of skin care products can contain different forms of vitamin C, so you’re cleanser may contain one form and your cream may contain another. Be mindful of the ingredients in each product you use.
Derivatives of vitamin C can be more effective in giving you the results you’re looking for. They are also less expensive, less irritating and do not oxidize as quickly. However, using an unmodified form of vitamin C can exfoliate the skin as it is highly acidic.
