Alternative treatment remedies taken from nature
Another treatment for aging skin that helps smooth wrinkles is to use the alpha hydroxy acids of five different acids found in common foods like sugarcane, sour milk, apples, pears, oranges, mangoes, grapes and lemons.
Studies have shown that all these acids help smooth out wrinkles, eliminate senility, improve dry skin, and even reduce the formation of blackheads and acne marks.
Eugene J. Van Scott, MD, professor of dermatology at the University of Hahnemann in Philadelphia, one of the leading researchers in the field of alpha hydroxy acids. For 15 years, he has been using them to treat acne and ichthyosis of the disease, a characteristic manifestation of which is dry, flaky skin. He noticed that as a result of treatment, some of his patients begin to look younger. Their age spots disappear, wrinkles are smoothed out.
What is going on?
It often happens that dead skin cells are not rejected, which should be normal. They accumulate, forming a thick outer layer, and the skin looks dull and old. If you remove these layers, then, according to Dr. Van Scott, the skin will become better. This is how alpha hydroxy acids work. They soften the “physiological glue” that holds together dead surface cells and can now be removed. And under them is the skin, soft, like a child’s.
Wrinkle treatment is a simple outpatient procedure. For several minutes, a concentrated solution of alpha hydroxy acids is applied to the skin, which is washed off with water at the end of the procedure. The patient may feel a slight burning sensation, indicating that a certain amount of solution penetrates the skin and exerts its effect.
How effective are these hydroxy acids will show further research. In case of success, we will get a method of treatment with natural remedies that can replace the tightening of the skin of the face.
