Women who want to look younger for longer usually opt for anti-aging skin creams
Women who want to look younger for longer usually opt for anti-aging skin creams. They use anti-aging skin care products to get rid of fine lines, wrinkles and to tone up sagging skin that develops with advancing age.
Women prefer to use anti-aging skin creams that have an established name in the area of removing fine lines and wrinkles from their faces and hands. If you too would like use these anti-aging skin care products, you need to first examine these products before buying them.
What to look for:
Ingredients: For instance, check out their ingredients. If you intend getting rid of wrinkles, check that your anti-aging skincare product contains Vitamin C. if you want never to see your face with fine lines and pores, look out for Retinol; or look for ingredients that help with collagen skin repair. This will give your skin its natural elasticity.
If your anti-aging treatment contains anti-oxidants, they will keep your skin tissues healthy and delay the ageing process. Lastly, moisturizers keep your skin healthy, so check that your anti-aging wrinkle cream contain aloe vera or Vitamin E.
Natural ingredients: Natural ingredients are usually 100% safe and organic, so they are always recommended. Check that your anti-aging wrinkle cream has these ingredients—Co-enzyme Q10 which fights free radicals and reverses the aging process; Phytessence Wakame, which keeps the skin looking elastic, taut and youthful and keeps wrinkles at bay; Cynergy TK, which increases collagen production to keep the skin looking young; Xtend-TK™ that helps encourage collagen and elastin production which makes the skin smooth and supple; Hyaluronic acid, which bonds the skin’s collagen and elastin; avocado oil, which stimulates the manufacture of collagen n the skin and make it smooth and soft; and Manuka honey, which promotes renewal of cells and helps the skin look young and blemish-free.
Also, check that your skincare treatments do not contain perfumes, dyes and preservatives as they can make your skin look drier and show up the presence of your wrinkles. Besides, if they contain certain perfumes, remember that this aroma comes from toxins which, when applied to your face, hands and neck, can cause you long-term skin damage.
SPF content: You must check that your cream has a higher than normal SPF value to protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun, which causes tanning and withering of the skin. If the anti-aging product contains SPF of 15 or more, it will protect the skin from any damage to the skin.
When to use: Though the market is flooded with anti-aging treatment products, no one can determine what the right age is to use these products because this varies from person to person, and is based on the condition of their skin.
However, by about a woman’s mid-20s or so, the skin begins to lose elasticity when it can no longer retain as much water as before. Besides, the skin’s oxygen level also shrinks significantly and this is evident in the skin losing its natural sheen.
In the decade that follows, on the one hand these conditions continue and on the other, the skin’s collagen manufacture decreases, giving way to wrinkles and fine lines. When a woman’s complexion begins to dull now, it is the right time to initiate the use of anti-aging products.
A woman in her 40s is the right candidate for anti-aging skincare products. Her wrinkles, sagging skin and skin spots are tell-tale signs that anti-aging products alone can solve these problems. However, care must be taken to select them correctly.
At this stage, it’s best a woman visits a dermatologist and finds out exactly what will suit her skin type and address her specific skin issues, rather than rely on self-judgment or the opinions of friends. With this focused information in hand, she can buy the products that will give her the desired results.
Side effects: To check if the product one buys is the right one, buyers must look out for any side-effects such as skin rash, acne, pimples, blisters, skin inflammation, brown or black spots or red patches.
Precautions: Users usually complain that the effectiveness of anti-aging skincare products are limited. Therefore, a lot of caution must be taken while using them. Besides, since they do not fall under the category of drugs, they do not enjoy the confidence of having been approved by the FDA.Users also find that they have to use the product twice a day to see any significant results, but once they stop using it, their skin looked like its former self. So, think hard before investing
