The Truth About Anti Aging Skin Care

Jul 25, 2008
In today's world, everyone wants to look and feel better. Unless you have been sitting under a rock for the past few years, you will know that there are many antiaging skin cream products available.

The problem is many of these so called anti aging creams have been found to be completely ineffective. Although there are products out there that can actually improve your skin and help you look younger and youthful, many simply fail to have any real benefit to your skin. A good skin care product should even out coloration inconsistencies and other pigment concentrations. They should also help reduce bags under the eyes, as well as the lines around the eyes that often occur as we age.

The problem is however, that there are just far too many anti aging skin care products to choose from. Unless you know the industry inside out, it is very hard to find a skin care product that benefits your skin and health in a positive way. Lets be honest, many people will spend any amount of money to look and feel better. Lets take cosmetic surgery as a prime example, it has become so popular that it is now a multi-billion dollar industry. The same is true for the topical skin care industry.

Because of such high demand, many product manufactures will rush out and create skincare products to meet the ever growing need people have to look and feel better. The problem is most of the money goes in to marketing and advertising campaigns, and although sometimes, the finished product can be helpful, most of the time, it is rushed out with no real dedication or even budget to source the best, most unique, and most pure ingredients.

We will now discuss some ingredients to avoid and some ingredients the best skincare products must contain so that you can make a more informed decision:

Ingredients to avoid

Many of the top branded anti aging skin care products are loaded with ingredients that will actually impair your overall skin health in the long run. Some of these ingredients to watch out for are mineral oils, dioxane, and fragrances. Although mineral oils may sooth and moisturise your skin short term, the long term effects can lead to your skin not being able to breath, blocking up pores leading to acne flare ups! Not very good for an ingredient used that was supposed to improve your skin..

Ingredients to look out for in your antiaging skin cream products

Remember, when selecting a high quality skincare product, it is important to know that it's not just about the ingredients, but also, the actual concentration of these ingredients. In other words, how much of the quality ingredients are used.

Collagen is an ingredient that many of the promoted skincare products use and they base the quality of there product on the fact they have included large amounts of collagen in there product. The fact is, collagen is a bogus ingredient. For collagen to be of any benefit to you, you need to find ingredients that will actually promote your body's own ability to create its own collagen. Only then can the collagen be used effectively. Two of these ingredients are Phytessence Wakame and Cynergy Tk.

Phytessence Wakame is native to the Japanese sea and is quite a rare ingredient indeed. The ingredient works by blocking a harmful enzyme in our bodies called hyaluronidase. This will stop the production of hyaluronic acid and without hyaluronic acid, the elastin and collagen fibers lose their "glue," which will eventually lead to a loss of youthful appearance.

Cynergy Tk is a scientific breakthrough ingredient that actually stimulates your own collagen to grow. This will result in less wrinkles and an over all younger and healthier skin texture. Studies have shown a 14% increase in skin moisture retention over only 18 days.

So, there you have it, if the anti aging skin care products have some harmful ingredients in them, and don't have the ingredients in them that we mentioned above, our advice is to stay well clear, and remember that they have probably put marketing before the development of a pure, quality natural antiaging skin cream product.
