Anti Aging

Anti aging treatments are readily available on the market today. But it is about choosing the right one for you. Anti-aging products are becoming evermore popular as more people, particularly women are increasing concerned with their appearance. With these antiaging products available it is no surprise they are so popular.

As you age, your skin starts to age with you and the signs become more visible as you get older. Wrinkles set in around your eyes and forehead and your skin starts to sag on the rest of your body, especially on the neck, chin and upper arms. This is due to the elastin and collagen, that once used to keep your skin firm, gives in. Exposure to sunlight in earlier life means pigment damage causes the skin to age dramatically as well.





Other factors contribute to the aging process, things we do in our everyday life. Smoking, apart from it being unhealthy and a cancer causing habit, also can leave the skin looking a pale yellow colour and also leave smoking lines around the mouth. Stress is another aspect which we can stop to help improve the skins condition and look. Eating a healthy, balanced diet can also help in your quest to having healthier, younger looking skin. Eating vegetables and fruit everyday increases the mineral intake, thus helping your skin to be smoother and rejuvenated for longer.



Staying out of the sun reduces the signs of aging, especially wrinkles. It is thought that 90% of aging is due to too much sun exposure. This is usually found when the sun exposure was at an early age in life. That is why it is important to keep your children safe and out of the sun. When the sun hits the skin is causes the production of free-radicals. These free-radicals are molecules that break-down the structure of elastin and collagen. The sun also causes skin pigmentation damage, resulting in sun spots or blotches. Therefore it is important to prevent this ageing by using an anti ageing cream such as sun block with an adequate factor that suits your need.

30% of aging is due to genetics but the rest is thought to be because of our lifestyle and the way we live. Unhealthy eating, repetitive sunlight exposure and smoking are just some of the aspects which we could change that would help improve the look, texture and overall healthiness of our skin. The anti-aging creams available do have a big effect of the look of our skin and it is due to the ingredients found within them.

Retinoids help the skin to become smoother and also reduce wrinkles. They are chemicals that help the skin produce new cells, more quickly. This makes the skin become thicker. Many antiaging creams contain Vitamin A because it helps reduce the depth of the wrinkles in the skin. It puffs up the skin to leave the wrinkles looking less deep. Alpha-hydroxy acids are fruit acids which speed up the removal of old or dead skin cells from the skins surface. Finally many anti aging creams contain Vitamin C because it helps to boost collagen production and circulation.

Anti aging creams are therefore very efficient at improving the look and feel of your skin. All the time there are new antiaging products becoming available on the market but it is about choosing the right one for you. There are even new products available that reduce the amount of wrinkles within a month and are preferred to that of the more drastic measures such as Botox and plastic surgery.

Anti aging creams such as moisturizers also help prevent ageing. They moisturize the skin to leave it feeling hydrated and rejuvenated. Other antiaging products available include defoliators and toners.
