Reversing the effects of age on your appearance is a very popular topic today. With the first of the Baby Boomer generation coming into the retirement age, there are more and more people that are interested in finding ways to look younger.
There are literally thousands of different anti-aging creams available on the market today. Since women are especially concerned with the effects of age to their skin, most of these anti-aging creams are targeted towards women, but many men have turned to them as well.
So do any of these anti-aging creams work at all in the first place? And what do they do really exactly?
Most of these products promises reduced wrinkles, which normally can be noticed after a short use of the cream.
However, there aren’t any known anti-aging creams that will actually eliminate wrinkles or otherwise permanently reverse the aging effects to the skin.
Anti-aging creams will remove layers of dead skin from the surface, and hydrate the lower layers giving them a plumper and fuller look that helps reduced the appearance of those wrinkles.
The wrinkles are not permanently removed, and will reappear after the discontinued use of the skincare product. Therefore, you have to keep applying the cream everyday.
Since the cost of many of these ant-aging creams is not cheap, it is not cheap to maintain the reduced wrinkle effect.
You can still achieve the same effect by using the less expensive type of moisturizers.
The only anti-aging cream ingredient that was proven scientifically are vitamin C and E, as well as Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA).
Though these three ingredients have been proven to work, there are also many other ingredients that will produce similar effects as well.
The result differs user to user and it is good to try out different brands and see which is the best for you.
The other two most effective things you can do to slow down the appearance of wrinkles is avoid smoking, and to apply sunscreen at the beginning of everyday if you plan on being outside for more than fifteen minutes.
It is recommended to use SPF 15. Looking tan is good but excessive UV exposure is a sure way to bring on wrinkled skin before its time.
