The Worlds Leading Anti-Aging Products



Skin cell reproduction slows down as one continues to age. The
declining rate at which fresh cells are reproduced, combined with
exposure to sunlight, gravity, and years of frowning and other facial
movements, reduces skin elasticity. These natural developments lead to
the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging on the
forehead, cheeks, around the mouth, and even the hands and neck. A
high number of individuals are unwilling to accept the physical
changes, helping the market for anti-aging products grow into a multi-
billion dollar industry. Non-invasive skin care products to address
aging are now generating huge demand. These anti-aging products
include skin lighteners and skin tightening and anti-wrinkle creams.

1. Cosmecuticals

A product line known as cosmeceuticals (cosmetics and pharmaceuticals
combined) has also emerged. These refer to cosmetic products featuring
alpha lipoic acid - a strong anti-oxidant - and other biologically
active ingredients. Such products may also have cellular enhancing
ingredients and different anti-aging vitamins, essential oils, herbs
and botanical extracts. A key characteristic of anti-wrinkle creams
and other anti-aging treatments is that their ingredients enhance
blood circulation below the skin, enabling more nutrients to reach the
surface and consequently enhancing skin elasticity.

2. Drastic Measures

There are some individuals who take a more extreme step in pursuit of
the so-called fountain of youth: plastic surgery. Some of the
'popular' choices are botox injections, skin cell detoxification,
laser hair removal and resurfacing, microdermabrasion and liposuction,
face lifts, dermal fillers and chemical peeling. One should remember
that such procedures generate dramatic and safe results, particularly
when done by experienced physicians, but are not without any risk and
significant costs.

3. Wrinkle Creams

Anti-wrinkle creams are developed to make skin on the neck and face
firm mainly by acting on collagen, or the protein under the skin
surface that conditions suppleness. This clinically proven product,
which helps eliminate wrinkles and lines around the mouth and eyes and
on the forehead, helps keep collagen fibrils nutrient-rich and
moisturized. Alpha lipoic acids are found in most anti-wrinkle creams,
promoting skin cell health and reproduction. Some creams are also
enhanced with vitamins B, C and E to boost the skin renewal process.
Generally, anti-wrinkle creams are massaged into the face to enhance
blood circulation and tighten skin tissue. Ideally, the product is
accompanied by sunscreen for protection against the sun's UV rays.

4. Skin Lighteners

Skin lighteners have become unfairly criticized as an anti-aging
treatment due to excessive and negative publicity surrounding pop star
Michael Jackson's use of the product. Lightening products work by
controlling the production of melanin - the substance that defines
skin pigmentation.

- Lighteners prevent excessive pigmentation
- Prevents discoloration
- Enhances skin tone
- Use only such products if they have 2% or less hydroquinone

5. Skin Firming

Skin tightening or firming creams make one look younger by enhancing
skin resilience and elasticity. The crucial ingredient in these creams
is Vitamin C or ascorbic acid, which research has shown to be
effective in promoting collagen production and speeding up skin cell
activity. These creams are also responsible for flushing out excess
water and splitting fat cells with no impact on the skin surface.
Manufacturers advise that tightening creams be applied prior to
sleeping to maximize their effect and skin penetration without any
interruptions for the full 8-10 hours that one is at rest. Consumers
have noted that the cream worked on and helped reduce fine lines,
dimples, wrinkles and sagging skin.

Can't begin to compare to riding a bicycle with no reflectors or
lights at night while wearing dark clothes for anti-aging qualities.
