For many of us, anti aging creams are the first line of defense against the visible effects of aging. The skin is the organ that shields us from the world outside, protecting the body from germs, extremes of temperature and anything else that the environment can throw at us. Because of all the abuse it endures, the skin is susceptible to irritation and damage, and eventually begins to show telltale signs of aging.
Skin that has started to age loses elasticity and begins to wrinkle. Age spots and freckles appear in places were pigment producing cells have responded to sun damage by producing more pigment. The skin loses fat and begins to look and feel thin, especially around the eyes, and may have a tough leathery feel. We use anti aging creams to combat these signs of aging and keep the skin looking young and supple. No one product, however, works for everyone: the best anti aging cream for you meets your specific needs. Your choice should depend on whether you hope to just protect your skin, or reverse signs of aging that have already appeared.
For most of us, the sun is the biggest cause of skin damage Š we love the feel of the sun and cherish a warm bronze tan, but this sun worship is dangerous for vulnerable skin cells. The best anti aging creams, then, provide some protection from the sunÕs rays. Sun screens and sun blocks absorb the harmful rays of the sun before they damage skin cells, and allow us to get a safer tan, but beware: tanning is not safe, nor does it help you retain youthful looking skin, and even the best anti aging cream will not protect you from excessive exposure to sunlight.
We get a lot of skin damage when we are children, too young to worry about looking old or using anti aging creams. The realization that the damage is already done comes later in life. Research is showing, however, that some skin damage can be reversed with topical vitamin treatment. The two vitamins particularly promising for this are vitamin C and Vitamin E, which have been shown in limited studies to improve collagen structure, induce production of elastin, decrease wrinkles, fade brown spots, and make the skin more supple and smooth. In short, used over time, they seem to make skin look younger. If further investigation supports this, all of the best anti aging skin creams will soon contain these vitamins.
So be good to your skin, protect it as best you can from the sun and wind, and other irritants that assail it daily, and if you start to notice signs of aging, give it the best anti aging skin cream you can find.
