Aging is inevitable although we’d all like to have a magic formula to eternal youth. However, just because aging can’t be avoided, it doesn’t mean we can’t slow it down. Here are the most important things you should know about anti-aging products and wrinkle creams.
1. Price Doesn’t Determine Quality
The most important thing you should know about anti-aging products and wrinkle creams is that their price doesn’t determine their quality. Most women make the same mistake. They assume that cheaper products aren’t good and only go for more expensive ones hoping they will be effective. When you’re just starting to use anti-aging products, it will take a while for you to understand what works for you and what doesn’t.
2. Things to Consider When Buying Anti-Aging Products
Now that you know quality isn’t determined by price, Here are some things you should consider before you purchase anti-aging products such as wrinkle creams, serums etc.:
Skin type – One of the key factors you should bear in mind when purchasing any product is your skin type and anti-aging products are no exceptions. Ideally, you should go for product that is formulated for your skin type. Also, you should never buy product that is made for some other skin type e.g. if you have oily skin, you shouldn’t buy anti-aging products with dry skin as greasiness could only increase in that case.
Ingredients – Active ingredients in products matter. Also, opting for natural products is always better than buying a product that is made of various chemicals and artificial substances. For example, good anti-aging products contain minerals, vitamins and other healthy components that your skin needs to become youthful and radiant.
Reviews – Individual experiences matter. Always look for reviews and check whether other customers are happy with the product or not.
3. Antioxidants Matter
Antioxidants help fight damage that occurs when free radicals start attacking healthy cells. Free radicals are created by excessive sun exposure and other environmental factors. Just like the rest of your body, your skin also needs antioxidants in order to remain healthy and smooth. The best sources of antioxidants are fresh fruits and vegetables, but anti-aging products have them too. When buying wrinkle creams or some other anti-aging product, it is important to read the list of ingredients and make sure they contain antioxidants
4. ANTI-AGING CREAM AND ANTI-AGING SERUM ARE DIFFERENT
There are so many anti-aging products out there and it can be quite difficult to figure out what they all do. Basically, anti-aging or wrinkle creams are used to provide moisture to your skin, boost collagen production to make it firm. Also, they are used as “tools” that make your skin smooth and nourished.
On the other hand, serums are highly concentrated products packed with active ingredients in small molecules penetrating into skin more easily. In most cases, they are used as spot treatment or some additional product in regular skincare routine.
5. Moisturizing Ingredients
Regardless of type of anti-aging product you purchase, it always has to contain quality moisturizing ingredients. Why? The answer is simple; as you age, your skin becomes thinner and loses fat. Also, environmental factors such as sun exposure can impair collagen production and elastin fibers thus making your skin saggy and wrinkly. Anti-aging products can provide moisturizing effects through ingredients such as hyaluronic acid.
6. PATIENCE IS KEY
Purchasing some anti-aging product or wrinkle cream and expecting them to work right away would be unrealistic. You should bear in mind that wrinkles didn’t show up over night, although it might seem like they did. Therefore, making them less noticeable can take some time as well. With a regular skincare regimen that includes cleansing and hydrating every day (morning and night) you will notice results.
