Are you approaching your thirties? Or are you one of those women in their mid-twenties whose skin already looks a decade older due to hectic, busy lives? These days, skin starts showing signs of aging much earlier.
No wonder then, that the cosmetic beauty-product market is flooded with a variety of anti-aging creams. In this article, we will tell you how anti-aging creams work and guide you on adapting to a healthier lifestyle so that you can get the best results of expensive anti-aging treatments.
Fine wrinkles and dark spots are some of the earliest signs of premature aging. Many women in their twenties also complain of skin conditions like blemishes, unnatural pigmentation, dark circles, crow’s feet, dry and stretched skin, etc.
Anti-aging creams are rich in high-quality moisturizers and tend to replenish the skin with essential nutrients. The active ingredients of these creams try to repair the skin damage by reducing the fine lines and wrinkles.
Some of the common ingredients of anti-aging creams are Retinol, Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), Growth Factor (GF), alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA), beta-hydroxy acids, antioxidants, peptides, and certain coenzymes. Some such creams also have a high content of sun block to protect the skin against sun burns and UV damage.
With time, the body loses its ability to produce new cells. As a result, with age, skin cells are not renewed and this leads to wrinkles in the long run. The use of various growth factors (GH) stimulates the skin to produce new skin cells. The hydroxyl acids work as chemical peels and accelerate exfoliation. This in turn fastens the process of production of new skin cells.
Research shows that regular skin care with common products also gives the same results as costly anti-aging or anti-wrinkle creams. Exfoliating your skin with coarse ingredients like oat meal powder will also help you. Using a variety of scrubs in your daily routine can also keep your skin young and supple.
The basic of beauty care is cleansing and moisturizing. Remember that taking just 10 minutes a day to care for your skin will give you much better results than investing a large sum in anti-aging treatments.
