Anti-Aging Face Cream Just Right For You
Anti-Aging Face Creams Which To Use? It may depend on your age, not just your skin type.
By Sharon Stajda
Which anti-aging face creams work best for your age --- and are all anti - aging skin creams/products created equal? It's true that as time passes our skin ages. Luckily the skin care industry have us covered, and had developed skin care for each age milestone. Chances are you've seen the anti-aging skin care hype on TV, in newspapers, and on online, all trying to persuade you to try the latest and greatest topical facial creams. Most of these ads are geared to make you believe you can pretty much turn back the clock, and recapture your once youthful skin. However, can any cream really do that? I must admit these ads make me very skeptical. And I am sure I am not alone? It may surprise you but many physicians are also skeptical, and profoundly question the claims and the promises the cosmetic companies make. There is not a lot of scientific study data out there to prove the many claims made by the cosmetic companies. So without actual published medical studies, to prove the cosmetic companies claims, should we believe all the hype? There are of course within each cosmetic company experts that are involved in testing each product, so one may want to keep an open mind when deciding to buy any given product.
Pentapeptides Amino-Acids Good For All Ages
The anti-aging treatment creams that are widely being touted today are creams that contain compounds called pentapeptides. These are compounds that contain small groups of long chain amino acids. These long chain amino acids act as chemical messengers to the skin, and other parts of the body. These particular peptides help the body repair itself by increasing cell production of collagen. Collagen is proven to plays an important role in skin aging. When you are a child and young adult your body has an abundance of these wonderful pentapeptides, that keep the production of collagen flowing. As you age, the river runs dry. Hence skin begins to age, and you lose elasticity, which also leads to wrinkles. The skin which is poorly nourished starts to thin, and dry. It is never to early to incorporate Pentapeptides Amino-Acids into your nightly skin care regime.
Do Amino-Acids Decrease Wrinkles They Do If Started Early Enough
It is pretty conclusive that the new collagen building pentapeptides that are being used in many of today's face creams show good results that aid in skin rejuvenation. Take the widely used Strivectin-SD. This cream was being manufactured as a cream that would help with stretch marks. It had wonderful results on this age old skin problem. So why not use it on the face? Lo and behold, it showed to be very effective on the face, increasing skin's elasticity, reducing wrinkles, and adding wonderful amounts of moisture to the facial skin. Ads for Strivectin-SD asks the question, "Isn't this better than Botox?" A great many Strivectin-SD users say yes, and are paying $135.00 per 6 ounce tube. So if you're not ready to pay $400.00 per Botox injection, give Strivectin SD a try. There are many popular creams and serums on the market today that possess the peptide technology. Such as Oil Of Olay's Regenerist, Principal Secret's Reclaim, and Avon's Anew Clinical Line and Wrinkle Corrector (Price: $32 for 1 ounce), just to name a few. Most claiming that you can expect to see improvement in your skin after 12 weeks of use.
Do pentapeptide compounds help in the fight to rejuvenate facial skin as well as they do in wound healing? The cosmetic companies would want us to believe they do. With as yet very little scientific data to rely on, it is hard to know if these miraculous little peptide collagen builders really keep their promises of delivering a more youthful skin.
The Most Sought After Anti-Wrinkle Creams - Do You Use One Of Them?
When I was a young adult, I started to wear an SPF on your face every day. As a nurse I was exposed to Dermatologist, that warned me of the skin damage sun could reek on my skin. This is just one of the taboos I picked up as I grew older. Others include applying your makeup and skin products in upward motions, to prevent wrinkles and sagging of the skin. Also putting on under eye lotion with your ring finger (it applies less pressure.)
I actually really did start following these rules at a young age. I am a little bit older now, and wrinkles naturally are starting to appear. But I must say, I feel for my age, my skin is good. I am going to be honest, I do not know a ton about anti-wrinkle creams, but I have over the years used them faithfully. I could not name all I have tried because there has been many.

Reduce the Appearance of Dark Circles Under the Eyes
As we age the skin under our eyes becomes thin, and highly vascularized and susceptible to discoloration. When this happens, unsightly dark circles can develop. If left untreated, can even become permanent.
The cause of dark circles is not due to lack of sleep, as many of us assume. The fragile blood vessels under the eyes as we age can more easily leak hemoglobin. As hemoglobin breaks down,pigmentation form, and accumulate. Due to this breakdown in the dermis and epidermis, dark circles around your eye area appear. A blue to violet tinge will show through the fragile skin.
Don't fret, Try a product that contains HALOXYL. HALOXYL is a fairly new ingredient that a few cosmetic companies have been using in their eye care produces. It truly diminish unsightly discoloration, and puffiness around the eyes.
I have had good personal success with "Serious Skin Cares" Hi Bright. Do your homework... There are a few other companies that sell products that contain HALOXYL.
