As you can see by the picture this man’s anti aging skin care program isn’t working too well. If your goal is to look like Grizzly Adams, then this article isn’t for you. However, if you want to learn an easy method to help improve the quality of your skin, then I know this article will be helpful to you.
Thirty years ago most men didn’t really worry about the quality of their skin. The routine was to shave, rinse and maybe throw on some aftershave lotion like Hi Karate to help close all the wounds. Originally it was just a one blade razor that gave way to two blades then three and now the quatro razor from Gillette. Either men want their faces to look better or we’ve bought into a slick advertising campaign. My guess is that men really want their faces to look better. That’s why for men, anti aging skin care is no longer just for women.
Good Looks Is All About Healthy Skin!
I’d like to show you a picture of a landscaper who has spent many years in the sun. If you look at this picture you will begin to notice that his right side (your left as you look at the picture) and his left side don’t quite look the same. His left side has crow’s feet around the eyes, smile lines around the mouth, uneven skin tone, and several skin lesions. His right side looks remarkably younger with even skin tone! The crow’s feet, smile lines and skin lesions are completely gone! In fact, many who see this picture think that his right side looks five to ten years younger than his left side. For men, anti aging skin care is all about helping your skin to act young again.
The secret to the remarkable change in the right side of this man’s face was using a product that contained Gen IV Technology. This man’s anti aging skin care program was able to reverse 5 to 10 years of aging in 4 weeks.
What is Gen IV Technology?
To understand Gen IV Technology you first need to understand the damage the rays of the sun cause your skin. Even if your occupation keeps you out of the sun most of the day, you are still susceptible to UVB and UVA rays from the sun. Both types of rays can damage the skin and both can affect the DNA of your skin cells in a negative way. Although your skin has reparative enzymes to help your skin cells recover from this damage, they can be severely limited in their ability to foster repair. Without getting extremely technical, Gen IV technology is based on, as well as supports, this naturally occurring DNA repair process in your body.
The chart below shows the amount of skin damage to the DNA occurring immediately after sun exposure. The chart shows that after six hours the body can repair some of the damage on its own. However, with the application of the DNA repair enzymes following UV exposure, a significant reduction in damage is seen during the same six hour period:
The key to Gen IV’s revolutionary effectiveness lies in its unique combination of T4 Endonuclease V repair enzymes and special acting liposomes. This repair enzyme helps to prevent and correct visible damage caused by exposure to the sun’s UV rays. The T4 Endonuclease V enzyme is extracted through a special bio-fermentation process from a certain type of microorganism. These enzymes are then encapsulated in specialized liposomes that are targeted directly to the skin cells. In a nutshell, the T4 Endonuclease V enzymes help protect the skin from UV-induced damage, reduce the potential for sunburn and help support the skin’s immune system. All this aids the body in self-repair.
For the landscaper above, this man’s anti aging skin care system was all about the daily application of a product that contained Gen IV Technology. This technology helped his skin cells effectively repair themselves. This resulted in the rebuilding and healing of his skin, the elimination of the fine lines and wrinkles, and the repair of skin lesions. All of this contributed to the healthy look and tone of his skin.
A Simple Two Step Program!
Men, your anti aging skin care program can be as simple as the following two steps. I’m going to highlight products from Synergy WorldWide because they pioneered both Gen III and Gen IV Technology.
Step 1 – After you shower and shave apply the Hand & Body Lotion from Synergy WorldWide to your face, forehead, and neck. This lotion will replenish your skin’s moisture and give you all the benefits of Gen III and Gen IV Technology. Gen III Technology helps to reprogram the fibroblasts and keratinocytes which are the working cells of your skin. This product will help rebuild the structural scaffolding of your skin while also helping to repair the DNA damage caused by the sunlight. Because Synergy WorldWide uses exclusive Liquid Crystal and Barrier Restoration Technology, it will not damage the delicate layers of your skin. In fact, its special emulsion technology will help to replenish and restore your skin barrier while hydrating, conditioning, and maintaining the delicate balance of your skin. You can also use this product on any other skin areas of your body. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and is your first line of defense in protecting you from infection. Maintaining healthy skin on more than just your face is a good anti aging skin care and wellness strategy.
Step 2 – For problematic areas apply DNA Repair Crème from Synergy WorldWide. This product contains a high concentration of T4 Endonuclease V enzymes (Gen IV Technology) to help support the skin’s natural defense mechanisms against harmful environmental agents. I would recommend using this product after any sun exposure especially if it has been prolonged sun exposure.
It is the success of this product that helped me improve my anti aging skin care program. I have basal skin cancer on my lower left hand jaw line. I had two operations to remove it and it came back after each operation. Although my physician wanted to do a third operation, I chose instead to try to find an alternative solution to my skin problem. I tried a lot of different products to no real success. The outside margins of this cancer site on my face continued to be an open sore and continued to spread. A friend of mine recommended the DNA Repair Crème so I gave it a shot. Within 30 days the margins were healed with no open sore. I’ve now used this product for over 2 years with no major outbreak. I apply it daily to my nose, which was severely sunburned in my teenage years, and the basal cell area of my face.
Cleansing, Toning, Exfoliating, and Moisturizing!
Men, your anti aging skin care program can include these additional steps if you want to take the time to apply them. The moisturizing part is already covered in Step 1 from above. So, let’s look at the other three:
Cleansing – Simple is best. Avoid bar soaps since they typically dry out the skin. Never wash your face with hot or cold water as either method can cause broken capillaries. This means lukewarm water works best. If you work during the day, then cleanse your face at night. Use lukewarm water to loosen the dirt and clogged pores. Use a nickel-sized amount of cleanser that best matches your skin type and then rinse with cool or lukewarm water.
Toning – This is one area that has different opinions. Some skin experts recommend it while others believe it is a waste of time. The purpose of a toner is to remove any remaining traces of oil and dirt which is the purpose of the cleanser. My recommendation is this. If you like the way your skin feels with a toner, than use it. If you don’t feel any difference, than skip it.
Exfoliating – This is not chopping down overgrown bushes around the house. Exfoliation is removing the top layer of dead skin cells. This is the step most men skip in their anti aging skin care program. When properly done, exfoliating will usually result in an almost immediate improvement in your skin. Shaving can be an exfoliation method but it is not complete. The recommended way to exfoliate your skin is microdermabrasion, chemical peels, retinol products, and scrubs.
I prefer scrubs because they can be done once a week, at home, and pretty inexpensively. Scrubs work by removing the top layer of dead skin. Just make sure you use a gentle scrub with tiny grains. The cheap scrubs use large grains which can actually tear your skin and cause more harm than good. I prefer the Renewing Facial Scrub from Synergy WorldWide since it uses pure jojoba micro beads that are naturally soft and cushioned to provide gentle exfoliation that won’t harm the skin.
For men, anti aging skin care is important. It is no longer just for women. Not only will it help to improve the quality of your skin but it will also help to rebuild your first line of defense in keeping you healthy. Remember this one important factor: your skin is your body’s largest organ. As your first line of defense, your body expands a lot of energy and resources to keeping it healthy. By adding a couple of minutes to your daily routine of showering and shaving, you could potentially add years to the life of your skin.
Additionally, a man’s anti aging skin care program should improve the skin’s ability to repair itself from the damaging rays of the sun. This lessens your chances of melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma which are the two most common forms of skin cancer. You will assist your fibroblasts and keratinocytes to act young again and rebuild the structural scaffolding of your facial skin. This will allow your body to redirect its resources to other areas of need.
Until next time, may we both age youthfully!
