Face Contour: Remember the Sunscreen

The loss of facial contour tends to be a normal part of the aging process. One reason is because of its loss of collagen and elastin over time. Sun exposure is a leading cause of this loss of collagen and ultimately the loss of defined facial features and firm skin. However, there are numerous ways to help prevent and treat your skin in order to maintain and improve a great facial contour.

Sun Damage: One of the Biggest Mistakes Made

One of the biggest skin care mistakes of all time is not using sunscreen. Women especially tend to believe if their skin looks good they do not need anything to protect it. However, the younger you start wearing sunscreen consistently, the more years your face will stay younger-looking and defined, not to mention decreasing your risk of skin cancer.

Over exposure to sun is one of the causes for the lessened amounts of collagen and elastin levels that create a loss of facial contour. UV radiation triggers the release of matrix metalloproteinases, an enzyme that breaks down collagen.

The skin loses its defining facial contour because of a loss of moisture as well. When skin becomes dehydrated, it generates a sagging appearance. Therefore, not only is it crucial to keep skin moisturized by constantly wearing sunscreen, but it is also helpful to drink lots of water (8 glasses each day).

The Right Ingredients: Neuropeptide Facial Contour

Facial contour does not have to be lost with age if you are aware of what skin-care ingredients work effectively when looking for treatment.

One product that is incredibly effective in adding definition to the face is Perricone’s Neuropeptide Facial Contour. This skin-tightening product includes DMAE, Neuropeptides, and Phospholipids to better improve your facial features.

And for SPF 30 protection, consider Perricone No Foundation Foundation with Zinc Oxide, provides non-chemical sun protection.

  4. This produce sounds like it would do wonders on my aging skin (age 53) – would love to have the opportunity to test it and comment on it!

  5. I always take care of my skin, since I am 41 and I do not want to look with wrinkles before of time. I would love to test this product to see the effectiveness of it.

  6. This product sounds great! I have tried several products but none of them had ingredients as rich and nourishing as perricone’s Neuropeptide Facial Contour. I’m always trying new products, reading articals and user reviews on skin care products trying to find “THE ONE”. This product appears to have all the right stuff, and i think i need to try it!

  7. There are so many things on the market these days that make some pretty far out claims, it is really hard to find one that actually works. I have run the gamut of these products and paid some pretty outrageous prices for things that just dont do what they claim to do. Just once i would really like to try a product and find one that really works, and does all it claims it can do…

  8. I think it will be a fun way to get to know the products

  9. This is my favorite of the products!

  10. I am willing to try anything to help get my face back in shape!! I recently lost alot of weight and I now have more wrinkles than a Sharpei!! And I am only 36 years old.

  11. I’d like to try this because I would like to have contour on my face so that my facial features look better.
