Age happens! Yes, it’s inevitable; we just get older. And as natural as that may be, it’s still a little hard to take when you see yourself change in the mirror every day.
What once was vibrant, beautiful skin now sags here and there. Then there are the fine lines, and the fine lines that grow into wrinkles. It can all be quite depressing.
Of course we can’t totally defeat the aging process but we can fight back a bit by getting enough sleep, eating right, and using effective moisturizers and anti aging creams. But which product is the right product? Here are a few hints.
When using any cream or topical application it’s important to know your skin type. Do you have oily skin, dry skin, or something in between? Once you’ve answered that question, you can focus in on just the products formulated for your type – the others won’t work well for you.
Look for products with the least amount of chemicals possible. Many anti aging skin care products have chemical additives which stabilize the formula but do nothing for your skin. Organic products have the double benefit of being safer on your skin and being safer for the environment. Aveeno skin products for instance have several natural and safe anti aging creams and skin care topicals.
Be aware of a product’s sun screening or sun blocking capabilities. Some products will do virtually nothing to block the sun’s harmful rays and so you shouldn’t apply them if you’re going to be in the sun for long periods of time. Find one that has some minimal SPF rating instead – and watch that sun exposure.
As we age our skin loses its natural ability to retain moisture and remain flexible. Finding the right anti aging cream can help our skin rehydrate and, at the same time, minimize wrinkles. We can’t turn back the clock, but we can slow it down a little.
