Learning to accept aging with dignity is a nice thought, since after all we all have to age. However, people are becoming more concerned than ever about youthful appearances. This has lead to large investments in anti-aging remedies. Although plastic surgery is one avenue of approach towards that elusive dream of finding a fountain of youth, this is expensive and is often associated with fears about problems associated with surgery. Therefore many people are searching for high quality supplements and creams and lotions to help deal with aging. Herein a review of research on resveratrol and collagen supplementation on facial aging supports the effectiveness of natural remedies of this nature to help fight aging.

There are many options to surgery to help fight aging facial skin

Harvard Medical School offers an interesting review on options to help cope with facial aging. Although age associated changes in our facial appearance can not be avoided, many people are not comfortable with this and want to work on appearing as young as possible for as long as possible. A surgical facelift is one manner which can be used to attempt to regain a youthful appearance. But this is very expensive and carries with it anxieties about surgery.

There are therefore many nonsurgical rejuvenating interventions which are generally preferable to help give your face a younger appearance, including:

1: Sun protection

2: Creams and lotions

3: Botulinum toxin injections

4: Dermal fillers

5:
Laser treatments

Our skin is one of the organs of elimination. You release toxins through the skin. This causes blemishes, where toxins have accumulated. The more toxic the environment, the more needs to be released. Wrinkles are the effect of constantly holding facial muscles in a hypertonic state because of stress. Wrinkles above the brow are caused by tension in the Frontalis muscle while the knot of wrinkles in between the eyebrows are caused by the Corrugator Supercillius. Orbicularis Oris and the Buccinator muscles cause wrinkles around the mouth. Levator Labii superioris pulls the upper lip into a 'sneer', and while Zygomaticus Major pulls the mouth into a smile, the Depressor Anguli Oris makes you look (and possibly feel) depressed. Relaxation techniques are beneficial in relaxing these muscles as well as making you feel better. Pinching the skin of the face delivers blood and oxygen, bringing a natural hue and healthy look to the skin without the use of war paints. You can do this every hour or so as long as you are careful not to bruise the skin.
Please, can someone help me? I have collagen, loose connective tissue and adipose cells coming out of an oral fluid. My doctor can't help. Can somebody tell me if this is normal?
Susan, this is not a forum to get that type of help. You need to see your doctor - if your doctor does not help, find a different doctor to tell you whatever it is you are experiencing.
I am wanting to know where collagen fibres are found
Hi Susan: Collagen fibres are proteins in our body that provide a support system for the organs. They are in our skin also. Collagen fibres are in our tendons and ligaments, bone and blood vessels. You can do a Google search to read about collagen.
