Does Anti Aging Cream Work At All?

Mar 5, 2008
Reversing the effects of age on your appearance is a very hot topic today. With the first of the Baby Boomer generation coming into the retirement age phase, there are more and more people that are interested in finding ways to look younger, forever.

There are 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 the women market, 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 anti-aging skin products will produce the appearance of reduced wrinkles effect, which can be noticeable in even just a few weeks of consistent use of the facial 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.

The facial creams 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 actually, and will reappear after the discontinued use of the skincare product. Therefore, you have to keep applying it 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 currently are proven scientifically are vitamin C and E, as well as Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA).

These three ingredients have been proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but there are likely also many other ingredients that will produce similar effectsl.

Results of any skincare product will vary from user to user, and a good strategy would be to try several different brands before settling on one which will work 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.

SPF 15 or higher is recommended here. It looks good to be tan, but excessive UV exposure is a sure way to bring on wrinkled skin before its time.
