Anti aging products have hit an all time high in the skin care market. It seems like everyone is looking for something to turn the clock back and give themselves a little more time of a youthful complexion and smooth skin. You’ve got wrinkle creams, and age hiding serums that flood the stores every year, and it is even worse on the internet, but how do you know which is the right one for you? To answer that question I have devised a simple wrinkle cream checklist so that the anti aging products market will be a piece of cake to sort through.
1.) How is the product reviewed:
This is a big indication on how the product is doing and how it reacts to different skin types. Reading a wrinkle or anti aging product review is like talking to a million of your friends and family at once about a anti aging product that you are interested in. Most of these sites and magazine articles offer honest feedback on everything from the feeling of the wrinkle cream or product to the company making the anti aging product and their reputation with customer service and refunds. Also, a wrinkle cream or anti aging product review will offer you information on the ingredients and their effectiveness, which will lead us to our next topic…
2.) What are the ingredients in the product?
Are they of a chemical synthetic base or all they organic and all natural? To me this question right here is probably the most important question you need to ask when picking any skin care product to your skin. Chemicals and synthetic ingredients are well known for causing a ton of adverse side effects to your skin. From rashes and irritants to even the development of cancerous cells, these types of ingredients should be avoided at all cost. Try and steer yourself to the all natural organic ingredients, even if you’ve never tried them before. The ingredients not only are gentle with your skin, but they contain so many nutrients and vitamins that will only help in the anti aging process. An example of natural based ingredient could be an ingredient by the name of Matrixyl (peptide based ingredient that regenerates new wrinkle reducing cells in the skin) or maybe Stem Cells (extracted from the cores of a Swiss apple, these cells can be programmed as any cell in your body). Both of the above are all natural and help fight off signs of aging, and are found in quite a few wrinkle creams on the market. Plus, the both offer moisturizing qualities that many other wrinkle cream ingredients may not.
3.) Is it a gel base or a cream base?
I know we are talking about wrinkle creams, and of course they are a cream base, but the other anti aging products out on the market we use to fight aging and wrinkles may not be cream based. The reason I put this topic in our check list is because when dealing with aging skin, creams are more helpful than any type of gel you can use. As you age, you skin not only loses the collagen and elastic fibers used to keep your skin youthful but it also loses a ton of moisture. So by using a wrinkle cream instead of any anti aging gel, you are not only feeding your face the ingredients it needs to heal your wrinkles but you are also adding moisture which can only do good for you complexion. So in the anti aging product realm, wrinkle CREAMS are what we should be looking for.
Three simple steps and your wrinkle cream shopping concerns are over. By seeing how other perceive the wrinkle cream, knowing the difference between each ingredient and what they do, and learning that a cream is better than a gel for older age; you will be able to knock out more than half of what is offered to you on a daily basis. This will make life a lot easier and your pocket book a lot heavier with all the money you save from not trying a million different wrinkle creams and anti aging products. So before you decide on a new wrinkle cream to fight off the signs of aging, refer back to your check list and find the best wrinkle cream you can for your face.
