Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips
Protect your skin and look younger with anti-aging creams
Sun damage. Wrinkles. Dull skin. If you’re an active woman, chances are that one or more of these conditions has taken a toll on your skin. And while you may be in great shape as a result of your active lifestyle, these conditions can add years to your appearance, no matter what your age. Whether you’re trying to prevent the first signs of aging, or your goal is to minimize damage that has already occurred, there are many advanced anti-aging products, including creams that provide anti-wrinkle benefits. These anti aging, anti wrinkle products can help reduce the impact of these conditions and improve the overall look of your skin. A good daily skincare regimen should including cleansing, moisturizing and sunscreen. However, there are many more anti-aging creams available, all claiming to turn back the years. But how do you select the right products for your needs?
The good news is that the best wrinkle creams available are not necessarily the most expensive. Anti-aging creams such as Olay Regenerist are reasonably priced and offer tremendous benefits. Most of the products on the marketing today include moisturizing ingredients, along with other products, such as Retinol, which is shown to reduce pores and fine lines. Some also contain vitamin C to aid in the healing of damaged skin cells.
Collagen cream also reasonably priced, is known to boost the skin’s elasticity, which tends to diminish as we get older. Estee Lauder Perfectionist Wrinkle Filler has been shown to fill the deepest wrinkles and immediately help skin to look smoother and more youthful. It actually “plumps” the skin and promotes the body’s own natural production of collagen.
More intensive anti-aging treatments such as Murad Resurgence Firming Treatment Mask use soybean and clover flower extract to improve elasticity.
Though technically not categorized as such, sunscreen is considered to be one of the most effective defenses against the aging effects of the sun, as it protects against UVA radiation, which is said to be one of the causes of wrinkles. A high level of protection is suggested if you plan to be outdoors, and a minimum of 15 SPF (sun protection factor) is recommended for use every day. Recent studies, however, report that most of us don’t apply enough sunscreen to provide the necessary protection. Experts say for complete coverage, use the amount that would fill a shot glass and apply liberally to face, ears, nose, hands and feet.
It’s never too late to begin a skincare regime that, if followed regularly, will make a noticeable difference in the look and feel of your skin.
