Aging is a complicated process. Everyone experiences it differently because of their environment, genetics, and lifestyle. Age brings wisdom, experience, and beauty. The new age of skin care celebrates and accepts the process of aging. It’s time to stop focusing on anti-aging and instead focus on maintaining healthy, radiant skin, regardless of age. Continue reading to learn how to age gracefully.
How Our Skin Ages
Our skin ages just like other parts of our bodies. Different skin ages in different ways. Your skin’s age depends on many factors. These include genetics, lifestyle, and exposure to stressors. Some people age slowly and steadily, while others experience rapid aging.
The Two Most Common Aging Processes
Both external and internal influences play a role in the aging process. Most of the time, these factors are predetermined and cannot be changed. However, external factors can be reduced.
Our bodies age naturally as we age. The aging process is a continuous process in which our biological and cellular functions slow down. As time passes, the skin’s flexible and strong matrix starts to weaken, and hyaluronic, elastin, and collagen naturally decrease.
There are many internal factors that can influence how fast skin ages. Common causes of aging include genetics, estrogen deficiencies, and decreased blood supply.
We can limit or prevent our exposure to external factors. This is contrary to what the internal factors do. The most common factors that accelerate aging are UV rays, pollution, and toxic substances – including alcohol and smoking.
#1 Free Radicals
What causes environmental aging? Skin is exposed to free radicals through pollution, blue light, and UV rays. These reactive molecules act as anti-oxygen bombs and cause inflammation and other damage. Free radicals can cause oxidative stress, which damages the skin and degrades its structural protein. This leads to premature aging.
Inflammaging is a condition where the skin is continually exposed to free radicals. Inflammaging refers to the process of aging caused by persistent and chronic inflammation. This eventually exhausts the skin’s defense systems. This causes a weakening skin structure, elastin degradation, and impairment of the skin’s barrier function.
How to Age Gracefully and Maintain Healthy Skin
You can’t reverse the clock, but you can make small changes to slow down the aging process. You can keep your skin healthy by living a healthy lifestyle and eating well.
#1 A Healthy Lifestyle
Reducing stress is one of the best ways of reducing inflammation. Studies have shown that those who experience high levels of stress have shorter Telomeres. These are located at the tips of DNA chromosomes and can cause cells to die faster or become more damaged. Regular exercise, meditation, and a healthy sleep schedule can reduce stress, which in turn can slow down premature aging.
#2 Balanced Diet
You can also help your skin age gracefully by changing your diet. Sugar, salt, and alcohol are all key contributors to premature aging. They can be easily cut back. To fight free radicals, eat antioxidant-rich foods like berries and leafy vegetables. And, (surprise!) Drink plenty of water to keep your skin and body hydrated.
#3 Use an Effective Nighttime Skin Care Routine
Your skin is at its most intense repair during the night. It’s surprising that a nighttime routine is one of the best ways to have smoother skin. Because the skin can adjust to the environment during sleep, it is able to look and feel smoother. To have healthy skin, it is important to get a good night’s sleep. Our bodies are constantly in repair mode during sleep. To prevent skin water loss and deliver product benefits, night treatments allow you to apply moisturizing ingredients topically to the skin. It is a great idea to treat your skin with hydrating, nourishing products at night. Studies have shown that oil production in the evening is twice as low as it is during the day.
Our La Coéss REVITALISÉ Organic Face Oil includes organic oils like Jojoba Oil, Rosehip Oil, and Sea buckthorn oil. We use these oils because they get absorbed into the skin quickly and penetrate it better. Beyond the low molecular weight ingredients, we also include ingredients with high-density compounds, which combines with antioxidant-rich chia seed and camellia oils. This collection of formula works to nourish, moisturize and visibly firm all skin types.
Use the REVITALISÉ Organic Face Oil as a nighttime treatment to make your skin more open to absorbing ingredients. It is even more important to include hydrating ingredients as well as protective oils in your nighttime routine.
#4 Use Right Skin Care Ingredients For Aging
Topical skin care can reduce the signs of aging. Skin care products that promote skin health, restore moisture, and deliver antioxidant-rich substances are essential to keep skin young. These are some ingredients you should look out for when choosing skin care products.

#5 Face Sculpting Tools
Face sculpting tools can improve the appearance and texture of your skin by being used in conjunction with topical treatments. Smoothen fine lines and wrinkles to promote collagen production. Gua Sha or jade roller are the most prominent tools used in facial massage. They help decongest the skin and remove excess lymphatic fluid.
