How many times have you looked in the mirror and wondered how old you think? When was the last time someone saw an old photo of you and commented on how little you changed? Is it time to start looking at any kind of anti-aging skin care?
It is a real crime that even though your entire body can change and age over the years, your skin is the largest figure in terms of age. It's not as if we can hide it either, so we have to start looking at ways to fight signs of aging. Using anti-aging skin care treatments is an excellent first step.
Most of us are aware of the different skin creams that are available. These are really just a form of moisturizer containing some extra special ingredients like AHA, Coenzyme Q10, Vitamin C and Retinol.
Some creams come with the extra protection of a sunscreen and have a shade that helps hide skin colors while protecting and rehydrating the skin. Some are available as concentrated serum, which contains some beneficial ingredients at higher doses to make them work faster to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Buy the right anti-aging skin care cream for your skin type.
There are so many skin types, from the dry to the oily, the sensitive and those that have a combination of all skin types. Younger skin also needs other treatment for older skin but fortunately most skin care creams have the skin type they are suitable for clearly labeled on them. Then we can look at some of the different skin types and creams that are most suitable.
Sensitive skin is skin that is easily irritated and choosing the wrong skin cream can make the skin look bitter and irritable. In some difficult cases you may also end rash, dermatitis and eczema. If that sounds like you, you need to be watched when looking for a good anti-aging product for your skin.
Most people will recommend that you look for anti-aging skin care products that have the reputation of being organic and natural. But the reality is that there are natural skin creams for all types of skin, some of which are quite potent, so make sure you read the label properly.
One of the worst ingredients for sensitive skin is salicylic acid. It is a potent ingredient used in many acne prone skin preparations because it easily breaks down dry, skinny, dead skin. This makes it good to treat blackheads, whiteheads, warts and psoriasis, but lethal to skin that is easily irritated.
Skin creams that are labeled as suitable for sensitive skin are often easier in texture and feel than usual creams, which makes them less effective, just less annoying.
If you have oily skin, I suppose you were told that it was OK because you would age less quickly than those with dry skin. For a certain time, it's true why most anti-aging skin care products focus on moisturizing, but oily skin still needs help when we age so that creams that are light and contain retinol or AHA are usually quite appropriate. Serum is really a good idea for oily skinny people because you benefit from the special ingredients without the mass and fat of the bottle.
Normal or younger skin
If this covers you, you're quite happy because you can use pretty much what you want without serious consequences. Younger skin requires less moisture than older or dry skin, so try just one product for a month and see how you feel about it. If you like to keep up with it, if it breaks you into blackheads or it just feels too thick, stop using it and try something else.
Anti-aging skin care for men.
In the early 2000s, a large increase in the amount of anti-aging skin care products was targeted at men. Biologically there is little difference between men and women so it is sensible that the same creams would work for both sexes, but men tend to have smoother skin than women so that a lighter cream works better in most cases.
Fortunately, as demand for male skin care products has grown, they have different products available and it is possible to have anti-aging skin care products that are very male in appearance and scent, but it is also easily absorbed without irritating the skin.
Of course, along with anti-aging skin care creams, living a lifestyle that is healthy and eating the right types of food should also be included in any anti-aging plan.
