Even though I dont know you, Ill bet that if youre like me, youre sick and tired of skin care products that dont do what they claim to. And when it comes to the best anti-aging skin creams, just how do you separate fact from fiction? How do you know if an anti-aging skin cream can actually turn back the clock on the damage that aging and exposure to the elements has caused?
The reason this may be a bit of a challenge is because the majority of skin care creams will give you a positive visible result. But you need to know that this has nothing to do with actually treating and repairing your damaged skin cells. What you are seeing is a “filler” effect of your fine lines and wrinkles that is achieved through cheap, synthetic chemicals that can actually cause more damage with long term use.
Anti-aging skin creams that are made with synthetic ingredients such as mineral oil, parabens, dixone, alcohols and chemically-produced fragrances are great for feeling creamy, smelling good and lasting a long time on your shelf. But these chemicals clog your pores, blocking your body’s natural ability to get rid of toxins. This can lead directly to acne flare-ups.
And because your skin is so efficient at absorbing things you rub on it, you are risking harmful chemicals, such as dioxone, reaching your bloodstream.
Using skin care products that are made of natural ingredients don’t come with that risk. With ingredients like avocado and macadamia oils, Vitamin E and natural enzymes like CoQ10, you can confidently rub these ant-aging skin creams on your skin and know that they are just as safe as if you ate them.
The best anti-aging skin care creams use these natural ingredients to attack the problem at the cellular level. This is exactly where the actual anti-aging work takes place. Because these natural ingredients are readily absorbed by your skin, they immediately go to work to fortify skin cells that have lost some of their natural collagen and elastin production. Your body’s natural collagen and elastin production is increased and free radical production is decreased, thereby helping your skin restore and maintain the youthful firmness and elasticity that you were born with.
Oh…just a little heads up. Beware of anti-aging skin creams that are promoted by using “collagen” in their ingredients. In order for collagen to be effective it MUST be naturally produced by your skin cells. It isn’t possible for the skin to absorb the “collagen” that is in these skin creams. The molecular make up is too large to be of any use to the cells.
So now that we’ve separated fact from fiction with regard to the best anti-aging skin creams, what is your next step? Put this information to the test. It’s as simple as reading the labels on any anti-aging skin cream you’re interested in. You will know you are on the right track toward true anti-aging if the product contains only high quality, natural ingredients, and is fragrance-free.
