Anti Aging Cream: Maximizing The Effects

Dec 3, 2007
One of the effects of aging is that, over time, exposure to the sun's UV rays, environmental and emotional stresses, and changes in the body's hormonal balance will rob the skin of its flexibility and softness. If you skin has reached the point where you have consulted a dermatologist for help in getting back some of its youthful glow and elasticity, he may have recommended an anti aging cream.

Follow The Instructions

Any anti aging cream which you may have started to use, no matter what its makers promise, will only be effective if you follow the instructions included with it. If you are required to leave the cream on your face for a specified period, and find yourself too rushed in the morning to leave it on for the full length of time, either get out of bed a few minutes early, or wait until you know you can keep it on for a sufficient period.

A prescription anti aging creams is designed to work in a specific way If you don't leave it on long enough, or conversely think it will work better if you leave it on longer than its manufacturer recommends, you will, on either not benefit from it or will actually harm you skin.

You also have to use the anti aging cream with the frequency stated in its instructions. If it was an expensive anti aging cream, you might be tempted to use it only once a day instead of the recommended twice. While using it half as often for twice the length of time may get you some results, they won't be the full results you would have gotten with proper use, so you won't really be able to tell of the anti aging cream is the best solution for you skin problems.

It's entirely possible that after you have used it according to the instructions for a while, you skin will improve so much that you'll be able to go into maintenance mode, and use it much less often to keep you new improved skin.

Be Patient

Finally, give your anti aging cream a chance to work. Don't give up if you haven't lost ten years worth of wrinkles in a week. It may take a week just to notice small changes in your skin's texture and elasticity, but don't get impatient. The anti aging cream will be replacing the nutrients your skin has lost over the years, and will need a chance to do its work.

Last, do not expect to see a big change overnight. Typically, it will be several days before you begin to notice subtle differences in the way your skin feels and looks. Don't be discouraged by the wait. Your anti aging cream is helping to replace lost vitamins and nutrients that are good for your skin. It will take some time for them to make an impact.

Even the best anti aging cream is not going to return your skin to the appearance it had when you were a teenager. But it will make it much softer, eliminate some of the tiny wrinkled, and possibly improve its color and firmness. Used properly, it can produce some noticeable effects. As long as you keep your expectations within reason, an anti aging cream will provide satisfying results!
