How Useful Is An Anti Aging Skin Care Guide In Helping You Choose An Anti Aging Skin Care Treatment?

Jul 31, 2008
Are anti aging skin care guides really helpful in helping you make an informed decision on which anti aging product you should buy? Although they can be useful they can have their limitations as they cannot possibly cover all the products that are out there.

There are so many creams, serums and lotions that are available and that promise some amazing results that I am sure you are sometimes left wondering what type of anti aging skin care treatment would be best suited to your skin type.

Is it possible to buy just one cream or will a system that suggests using a couple of products be a better option?

Then of course comes the issue of cost as some of the products can cost from around $200 for just one small tube.

It would be prudent to ask yourself a couple of questions, before you decide which product will best suit you.

The first one is will you be able to afford the financial investment for the foreseeable future of the treatment you have chosen, because once you start using them you will need to use them for the rest of your life if you want to maintain a younger looking complexion.

And the second question you will need to be satisfied with the answer to is, is the product safe to use?

Many products that are available in the anti aging skin care market are made from many synthetic materials including waxes and oils. The reason for this manufacturing process is the low cost involved in manufacturing which in turn leads to huge financial profits. It is no wonder that this is a multi billion dollar industry.

Some manufacturers make amazing claims about anti aging skin care treatment products that relate to the properties of their ingredient list.

on some of the more expensive ranges, is the addition of collagen.

Collagen is naturally created in the skin this gives our skin its firmness.

A part of the aging process is the reduction in the amount of collagen that the skin cells create. This leads to older, wrinkly skin.

Collagen it is claimed, is added to create more collagen but this claim is blatantly false as the molecules in collagen are too large to be able to penetrate through the skin. It physically cannot happen.

Another claim often made by product manufacturers is the inclusion of ascorbic acid (Vit C,) as an efficient anti oxidant).

Ascorbic acid is a wonderful supplement to eat but not as an ingredient in a topical application.

There are some researchers who believe that the water soluble form of Vitamin C actually produces a dangerous free-radical, called hydroxyl which, when it comes in contact with the iron in the skin causes redness and irritation.

So are there products that do not make outrageous claims but that work?

Yes there are some manufacturers who do provide really safe, extremely effective products.

Some of these products in this category have prices ranging anywhere from $35 to $200 a tube.

Some of these products according to an anti aging skin care guide are based on new cell technology research that can be absorbed by the skin safely to nourish it and make it look younger.

If you want younger looking skin then an anti aging skin care treatment is out there for you to try and some are within the price range that most of us can afford.
