Skin Regeneration and Plump Tear Troughs Without Injections? Here’s How

The tear trough is the cavity between the apple of your cheeks and the nose, under the eyes, that appears with age. Hyaluronic acid injections are an effective solution to plump up this area, but there are also other, less daunting options for the needle-averse. Here are some alternatives for skin regeneration so you can preserve your glowing skin at 50 and beyond.

How fast do skin cells regenerate?

Every day, our skin is renewed. Every day, we lose 4 grams of skin. A square centimeter of skin is made up of around 500,000 cells, each of which only lives for 4 weeks. They then die and become "dead skin", which is what we notice on our towel after a shower! Why is this? A combination of micro-traumas (cuts, burns), diet and age. After 50, an oestrogen deficit due to the menopause means that stem cells; the source of the skin's youth; struggle to fulfil their skin renewal role. Cells work less effectively, leading to the thinning of the epidermis. The skin becomes more fragile, finer and dryer. The epidermis needs to be strengthened to boost skin regeneration so you can prevent sagging skin when you are older.

How to prevent volume loss in your face?

There are several things you can do to boost skin regeneration (hint – using salicylic acid and hyaluronic acid for your skin can do wonders!)
Add these steps to your skincare routine individually or combine a few to maximize their benefits!

1. Salicylic Acid for the Skin - Exfoliation

It is advisable to exfoliate the skin once or twice a week with a gentle scrub, so that you do not aggravate the epidermis. This will get rid of dead cells and encourage the absorption of the active ingredients in your creams. Your skin will look brighter, smoother and more radiant. Salicylic acid is one of the best alternatives to physical scrubs that can sometimes aggravate sensitive skin. Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin, salicylic acid for dead skin acts as a chemical exfoliant that gently slough off old skin cells and reveal soft, smooth, and younger-looking skin. Using salicylic acid for skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, and textured skin is a great way to unclog your pores and clean your skin from deep within. To treat your skin to the benefits of salicylic acid, try the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence, a facial essence with salicylic acid that penetrates up to 10 skin layers deep* to cleanse, refine and accelerate skin renewal from deep within. This L'Oréal essence unclogs pores, refines skin texture, and hydrates your skin to give you a bright, radiant, and crystal-clear complexion.

Along with the essence, also use a hydrating sheet mask like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence Sheet Mask for best results. This hydrating face sheet mask refines and smoothens your skin in just 15 minutes. With the power of one bottle of essence in one sheet mask, the Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence Sheet Mask holds upto 30X more essence as compared to other masks**and gives your skin an intense boost of hydration to your skin in just one use. Use the Crystal Micro Essence twice every day and the Crystal Micro Essence Sheet Mask three times a week to enjoy glowing skin that is healthy and looks youthful.

2. Hyaluronic Acid For Skin

What does Hyaluronic Acid do? Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a sugar found naturally in our skin that holds water and helps keep it hydrated and plump. Due to the ability of HA to draw and hold water, it can be used as a humectant in your skincare regimen. Now since we are looking for alternatives to injections, the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum is the perfect serum to get intensely hydrated, radiant skin and tear troughs. It locks in hydration, leads to radiant, plump and youthful skin, as it boosts your skin’s radiance by 42%*** and lead to visible results in no time! It is suitable for all skin types and is validated by dermatologists. This essence does not clog pores and is paraben, alcohol and fragrance free. Use it before using the L’Oréal Paris Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Day Cream!

3. Targeted Serums & Creams

The cosmetics industry offers creams rich in DHC to stimulate cell regeneration in mature skin, so that it gets back its suppleness and radiance. The active ingredients wake up the cells, activate their energy and encourage production to strengthen the epidermis.

Do not wait until you start seeing the signs of ageing and then act on it. Use anti-wrinkle creams and anti-ageing skincare products from your late 20s and early 30s to preserve your youthful skin and hold on to the radiant and plump complexion for longer. Products like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Action Transforming Eye Cream and Revitalift Triple Action Night Cream are all designed to fill up lines, improve skin texture, boost your skin’s elasticity and hydration, and keep the signs of ageing at bay.

4. Antioxidants and Vitamin C

Eating fruit and vegetables rich in antioxidants (kiwi, lemon, aubergine, cabbage, beetroot) as well as plenty of vitamin C can play a significant role in skin regeneration and in slowing down the skin aging process.

5. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Sessions

If you have made it this far and want to learn how to prevent volume loss in the face, make Intense Pulsed Light your new best friend. these light treatment sessions stimulate cell regeneration and the production of collagen fibres. They are especially recommended in the summer, as they make the skin firmer and reduce pore size, dark spots and fine lines. Perfect for reducing the appearance of signs of ageing, IPL sessions work in a similar way to laser therapy.

Now that you know what salicylic acid does for your skin, it is time to incorporate these products into your routine to get plump and glowing skin for years to come.
