Anti aging skin care guide

Aug 10, 2008
The anti aging skin care guide in general comes from a cosmetic company. People are inclined to think that they are honest and they are likely to believe in their anti aging skin care treatment, but the companies are mainly interested in selling their product.

The best anti aging skin care guide that I have ever read was designed by a dermatologist. I'll briefly cover the highlights here, since the original can be difficult to read.

It's not easy for the novice in the field to grasp some of the terms in the dermatologist's guide, but the anti aging skin care treatment that he recommended actually made absolute sense. It does not contain recommendations like the ones you are likely to see on TV or at the cosmetic counter, but it stresses the importance of taking care of the skin's health, and the end result would be the prevention of skin related problem and an improved look.

It seems logical that a dermatologist would write an anti aging skin care guide, but in reality that is unusual. They don't regularly believe that a topically applied anti aging skin care treatment can have a positive result. Like most doctors, they usually believe in injections, drugs and other more mainstream medical solutions.

A doctor named Albert Kligman stated that by taking care of the outermost of the skin's layers, the health of the inner layers would be protected. He recommended different treatments depending on the condition, but for each ingredient, he believed that the manufacturing process should be clear and exact for the product to be effective. That's the main rationale why we often find an anti aging skin care treatment that's ineffective. More likely than not, the ingredients are right but the manufacturing process is wrong.

One of the ingredients that Dr.Kligman recommended in his anti aging skin care guide was peptides. They are tiny fragments of amino acid proteins found in the skin. One is hyaluronic acid. Another important one is keratin.

Companies have tried to use keratin, but the peptide chains were rendered inactive by the manufacturer. Only "Functional Keratin", which is created using a patented process, has active peptide chains and so encourages the production of collagen. It also reduces wrinkles and fine lines, from the "outside-in".

Hyaluronic acid increases firmness, but it is quickly destroyed through an enzymatic process that occurs in the skin's layers. The best anti aging skin care treatment contains an extract from Japanese kelp that blocks the enzymatic process, so levels of hyaluronic acid natural rise.

Another ingredient Dr. Kligman recommended in his anti aging skin care guide was grape seed extract, because they are free radical scavengers. Grape seed oil is also an effective moisturizer and creates an invisible layer that keeps in moisture. Moist skin has less of a tendency to crack and wrinkle.

The Dr. suggested also that anti aging skin care treatment should contain special compounds that change the light's reflection, so that a person sees immediate results. This is basically for psychological gain. Many people become very depressed with their appearance.

Functional Keratin has demonstrated to have the ability to reflect the light, but there are two main reasons why it is a better choice. First, it improves the skin's health and second it is not just a cosmetic like other compounds. A complete anti aging skin care guide would be extensive and include a lot more information, yet this can be sufficient information to lead you in the right direction.
