How Thicker Skin Make You Look Younger?

Our skin wrinkles first where it is thinnest. If you doubt this fact, check around your own eyes, neck, and hands. The explanation is actually very simple! Skin thins as we age, and thinning skin is more prone to wrinkles and moisture loss. Here’s how to fight wrinkles by getting thicker skin!

We all know that drinking water and exercising regularly helps keep body healthy, flushes toxins and helps to hydrate our skin, but we also know that it is far from enough to reduce our wrinkles as we age! (Unfortunately, things aren’t this simple.) So how can we restore moisture, flexibility and thickness back to our skin?

Younger skin is resilient as it has strong healthy underpinnings, it has great flexibility and it will quickly snap back into shape when stretched. Our skin is laid down in a biophysical flexible matrix which contains collagen and elastin – the two proteins responsible for resilience and flexibility. These are diminished in quantity as we age, and they cross-link (lose their flexibility) enhancing frailty, allowing wrinkles to permanently form.

If we only could somehow thicken our mature skin around eyes and neck, we would be able to reduce wrinkles and moisture loss. To our relief, this is very much possible.

Anti-aging products are designed to help repairing and "optimizing" the collagen and elastin production system in a way that the skin becomes resilient, less wrinkled and "thicker". And there is one skin care product that is particularly good at this and can do exactly that!

In a four-month study, published in The International Journal of Aesthetic and Restorative Surgery, overwhelming evidence was found that "Servital Active Defence" from Syence Skin Care Laboratory actually thickens the epidermal (outer) layer of the skin 26% in an average 53-year-old. Essentially, this provides the patient with the equivalent epidermal skin thickness of a 20-year-old!

Their products are not tested on animals, has no animal ingredients, no alcohol, no fragrance, no genetically modified ingredients and has been proven effective in independently verified tests.
