Aging is a natural process that affects everyone, and it can be seen in various ways on our skin. Sadly, there is no cure to stop aging altogether (unless you’re a vampire), but there are definitely ways to slow the process down. That’s where we come in. FACTORFIVE seeks to redefine how we, as a society, look at aging. Our products are backed by years of scientific research which yield empirical results. Powered by ethically derived human stem cells, our skincare works harmoniously with your own skin to replenish growth factors that naturally deplete as we age. In this blog, we will dive into the five signs of aging and how our products are fighting back in your skin’s favor.
1. Wrinkles and Fine Lines
One of the most obvious signs of aging is wrinkles, which are caused by a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. Collagen and elastin are proteins that give our skin its structure and elasticity, and as we age, these proteins begin to break down, leading to wrinkles and fine lines. So what are we going to do about it? We fight back! FACTORFIVE products contain human stem cell derived growth factors with copper peptides to help restore your skin, for a more youthful glow. Our bestselling Regenerative Serum is backed by years of scientific research, and is known to give your skin a more hydrated and youthful appearance. Just check out the before and after results below!
Hyperpigmentation is the term used to describe the darkening of certain areas of the skin, sometimes called sun spots. This can be caused by an excess of melanin, the pigment that gives our skin its color. Hyperpigmentation can be caused by a variety of factors, including sun damage. For those in the back, the sun is not our friend! We’re not saying to avoid it completely (again, another vampire analogy), but do your due diligence to make sure your skin is protected from harmful UV rays.
3. Skin Elasticity
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, which can make it feel tight and uncomfortable. This can be caused by a loss of collagen and elastin, as well as a decrease in the production of natural oils. Like we said earlier, there’s no cure for aging, but we’ve come pretty darn close. FACTORFIVE’s New Nourishing Silk contains adenosine triphosphate, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, and sodium chondroitin sulfate. So if you’re not a scientist– that means these ingredients help stimulate dermal metabolic activities for regenerating firmness and elasticity of the connective tissue in the skin.
4. Skin Firmness
For the record, gravity is not our friend either. Along with skin tightness, our skin can also lose firmness as we age. This can be caused by a loss of collagen and elastin, as well as a decrease in the production of new skin cells. To help minimize the appearance of skin firmness, it's important to use skincare products that contain ingredients that contain collagen-boosting peptides and antioxidants. FACTORFIVE Anti-Aging Cream combines powerful human stem cell derived growth factors with a comprehensive array of moisturizing ingredients to leave your skin feeling more rejuvenated, youthful, and firm.
5. Skin Texture
As we age, our skin can become rough and uneven in texture. While these signs of aging are a natural part of the aging process, there are things that can be done to help delay their onset. Sunscreen is crucial to prevent sun damage, which is a major cause of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Regular use of anti-aging skincare products can also help to boost collagen and elastin production, and keep your skin looking youthful and healthy. In addition, a balanced diet, regular exercise, and good sleep can also help to prevent these signs of aging.
In summary, wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation, skin tightness, skin firmness, and skin texture are the five signs of aging that we all will experience to some degree as we grow older. However, taking good care of our skin by using sunscreen, eating well, exercising, getting good sleep, and using scientifically proven skincare products*cough cough* can help to delay their onset and keep us looking and feeling our best as we age.
