Don’t kill my glow – perfect skin for Christmas’.
The most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner! But as beautiful as the holidays may be, before the sensual get-together can actually begin, it is first of all necessary to get through the annual Christmas stress. How to keep your glow despite shopping marathons, cookies and mulled wine, we tell you in our article.
Not sweet at all – why sugar makes you old
Who doesn’t know it? A cookie here, a piece of Baumkuchen there, and to top it all off, the sugar mix is washed down with a big gulp of punch. But the sugary seduction usually leaves a bitter aftertaste. After all, unsightly pimples, a sallow complexion and visible skin wrinkles are not long in coming after the feast. But wait a minute: skin wrinkles due to too much sugar – what?! That’s right! If you snack often and too much, you have to expect wrinkles sooner. High sugar consumption causes “glycation” to form, this in turn is responsible for the premature aging process. Increased consumption of sugar eventually “over-sugars” the protein structures in our body, so that the sugar molecules are stored in the body. As a result, the skin loses elasticity and begins to sag.
Not so chill – why stress makes you old
Similar to the sugar consumption it behaves also with an increased stress level. Once again in search of a suitable last-minute gift just before Christmas? Here, the body is flooded with stress hormones and this truly gets under the skin! An increased stress level weakens our immune system and thus makes us more susceptible to inflammation. Neurodermatitis, wrinkles or pimples become visible and let the Christmas spirit quickly sink into the basement.
In addition to a healthy diet, regular exercise and a regular daily routine, more and more people are resorting to minimally invasive procedures with muscle relaxants and hyaluronic acid to look young and fresh for as long as possible. But what are the concrete options here?
Skin rejuvenation with hyaluronic acid and muscle relaxant
As before, the active ingredient muscle relaxant is considered a time-tested and established remedy in the fight against the formation of wrinkles. Whether a pronounced frown line, transverse forehead wrinkles or unsightly crow’s feet, muscle relaxant is injected into certain facial muscles to make the skin appear younger again. This relaxes the affected muscles and causes a smoothing of the overlying skin. However, muscle relaxant is not the only treatment suitable for hiding the signs of aging. Hyaluronic acid can also plump up wrinkles and thus significantly improve the quality of the skin. If that’s not a reason to celebrate!
