When choosing any skin care product it is important that you do your research. You should know what ingredients are in the product and be confident that it is safe and will meet your expectations.
What Makes Your Skin Age
We agree with all of the experts, writers, and beauty influencers on this topic. The first step comes before you ever think about applying an anti-aging product on your face. It starts with sunscreen and sun protection, good diet, sufficient sleep, exercise and hydration. Maintaining a skin-healthy lifestyle will give you a distinct leg up in your quest to look youthful with luminous and clear skin. Incorporating these into your daily routine will not only make you look better, but will help you to feel better as well. On top of this, it is really important to avoid smoking. Smoking does as much, if not more, damage to your skin than day to day sun exposure.
According to the doctors that write for WebMD:
Study after study shows how extensively smoking ages the skin. It does a lot of what the sun does. It just does it inside [the body] instead of outside… It makes the skin weak, tired, and listless looking… Smoking also yellows the skin, interferes with its blood supply, and slows wound healing. So if you injure your skin, it may not heal as well if you’re a smoker.
The Importance of Moisturizer
The other thing that all experts agree on, which is backed by the medical community, is the importance of moisturizing. The Mayo Clinic sums up the reason very simply:[When you use moisturizers] dry skin turns plump skin cells into shriveled ones, creating fine lines and wrinkles. Though moisturizers can’t prevent wrinkles, they can temporarily mask tiny lines and creases.
Evaluating Anti-Aging Skin Care Creams
Anti-aging creams are multi-faceted. They do more than just moisturize. They also temporarily mask your skin’s signs of age and can help reduce the damage done by unhealthy lifestyle choices. In order to choose the one that is best for you and your skin you should take personal stock of a few factors.
- What are you looking for in a product? Since there are a wide array of products available, all with different ingredients and varying formulas, is there something in particular you are trying to accomplish? This could mean that you still look as youthful as ever, but you want to prevent signs of aging that you predict are on their way. Or it could be that you are looking to repair sun damaged skin and reduce the fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration that accompanies that. Either way, understanding your own skincare goals will allow you to evaluate your expectations and help you choose exactly what you need in order to accomplish those goals.
- Do the research to help you set appropriate goals and realistic expectations for your skin. There are many options out there. Some are not formulated to address the problems you may be experiencing and some are not formulated for your skin type or quality. Also realize that creams and lotions are classified by the Food and Drug Administration as cosmetics, not drugs, and legally do not have medical value. This means that they are not required to go through the same testing for safety and effectiveness that a topical medication would. (Source). This means that many products promising results do not have the science behind their claims. So, stick with ingredients that are scientifically proven to be effective on the anti-aging process, like nanotechnology adapted collagen and stem cells, and with companies that have the capacity to do laboratory studies to prove what they say. And make sure that you, as the consumer, understand how the product is intended to work.
- Evaluate the products you are considering, ensuring that they do not have ingredients that you are allergic to, or that you are likely to have a negative reaction to. Some dyes, preservatives and perfumes tend to cause skin irritations in many consumers, while others are gentle and safe. (Source). Glycolic acid is likely to have a short term impact on your face, causing redness and blotchiness and some people report a burning sensation after use. Retinoids cause sun sensitivity, so it is especially important to make sure that if your anti-aging cream contains them, you add extra sun protection.
- Go with a brand that you feel good about using and a company that stands behind their product. There is nothing more comforting than understanding that a new product you are trying comes with a real money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied, or that the terms of that guarantee are clearly spelled out. This is an indication that the company stands behind their product. They are confident that you will not only look great after you use their product, but that you will continue to use it for years to come.
