Essential Components You Should Have in Your Anti Aging Kits

Sep 3, 2008
Today the aging society of baby boomers isn't going down without a fight. They battle on every front to maintain youth and vitality. As a result, they are younger than their years when compared to their parents and grandparents. This cannot be entirely attributed to closer attention to proper diet and exercise, although it has a lot to do with it. It isn't better attitude, even though attitude about aging is a big part of aging gracefully. It's due to anti aging kits that consists of creams, products, tucks and injections done in secret.

If your pocketbook doesn't afford you a collagen injections or nip and tuck procedures, you can still fight the ravages of time with a few essential components that you should have in your anti aging kits.

The first is a good skin care regimen. This includes the skin that the whole world sees and also the skin that only those you care about sees. Good skin care involves the removal of old dry cells. This is referred to as exfoliating the skin. There are a variety of ways to exfoliate, from the more expensive spa to the privacy of your bath or shower. A loofah (or luffa) sponge is an inexpensive answer to skin exfoliation. You can grow them yourself if you have the patience to produce the gourd or find them at any store where beauty products are sold. Some soaps contain granules that also exfoliate the skin. As you age, the body loses the ability to remove the dead cells. They build up and create deeper indentations around wrinkles and a generally old washed out appearance. The exfoliating agent or scrub not only removes these dead cells but also takes years off your appearance. Don't forget to scrub your entire body while you're working on your face.

An essential component in anti aging kits is a product that tightens your pores. Mild astringents close the pores without drying the skin. Chamomile products are often ideal for older skin, but there are a huge number of skin toners on the market that are mild.

The third item that is one of the essential components you should have in your anti aging kits is a good day cream. This is applied right after exfoliating and toning while the skin is still plump from showering or bathing. The ingredients should be light and provide a layer of protection to retain moisture. Newer products that contain ingredients found beneficial for the skin should be given due consideration.

An evening cream is another great tool. If you find that your hands showing more signs of aging than your face, a little trick that movie stars use is the occasion use of cotton gloves for bed wear. Slather the hands with good thick moisturizing cream and slide on cotton gloves, preferably white. Remove them in the morning and you'll be amazed at the difference that they made overnight.

The best component in anti aging kits is good nutrition. Supplements like CoQ10, a healthy diet that includes lots of red and purple fruits and vegetables, are some examples of vital components everyone should have in their anti aging arsenal.

The baby boomers are right, you can fight back. A healthy diet, a healthy mind, lots of activity and a good skin regimen are all the essential components you should have in your anti aging kits to keep the years from showing.
