How Do These Name Brand Skin Anti-Aging Products Work

Jan 18, 2008
There is absolutely no limit to the amount of money a person can spend on name brand skin anti-aging products, from those that are meant to reduce puffiness around the eyes to those that promise to reduce wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and mouth. Every corner of your face has a certain product or serum available to it. There are even specialized products that are meant for the hands and feet! Heaven forbid anyone should have a wrinkle on their hand or dry spot on their feet - there are name brand skin anti-aging products for just such areas as well. If you have age spots or calluses or dry skin on your hands or heels, you can find a cream or ointment to take care of it, if you're willing to spend the money.

Is there really any difference between these anti-aging products and those you might find at a mass market retailer or pharmacy? Are you only paying for the name on the box, or is there something more to it?

Obviously every product is different, and just because some celebrity's face is on the marketing campaign doesn't necessarily make the product they're touting any better. However, sometimes you do get what you pay for, and this can be true when it comes to name brand skin anti-aging products.

It's the Ingredients

When looking at the labels of both generic and name brand named anti-aging products, you need to be concerned with the active ingredients. Most other elements listed are simply preservatives, the cream base, and so on.

Retinol is one of the best ingredients for skin care; it is a derivative of Vitamin A, which many dermatologists know is healthy for the skin. Aloe Vera and grape seed oil are two great natural moisturizers for the skin and are absorbed better than most. Vitamin E is also a healthy natural moisturizer for the skin.

Which Are the Best?

Everyone is going to react differently to different creams and serums, and this is true even with the most expensive name brand skin anti-aging products. However, some of the best include N.V. Perricone, whose anti-aging creams contain peptides and proteins designed to replenish the skin. Boscia is a brand that is known for using all natural ingredients, specifically those found in tropical environments and so may be the best at protecting the skin from harsh outdoor elements.

Stri-Vectin is a line of anti-aging products that were originally produced to combat stretch marks, but that also work well to eliminate wrinkles from the face.

Whatever product you decide to try, give it at least a month's worth of regular use before you decide whether or not to continue. Some need this long to really be absorbed into the skin and to do what they've been designed to do.

Always consult your doctor before using this information.
