If you’ve ever tried to find a skincare product to deal with the skin care concerns of aging skin, you’re probably as confused as the average person. There are so many products and ingredients that tout ‘increase in this, ‘decrease in that,’ ‘revitalized this and revitalized that’ and on and on.
To understand what anti-aging skin care products are intended to do, you have to first understand what the aging process is for the skin. Aging skin has the condition where the structural proteins that bind and support the skin, collagen, and elastin, lose their resiliency and cohesion, causing the skin to wrinkle and/or sag. The body's ability to produce new collagen and elastin also diminishes with age while the cells in the various layers of our skin decline and thin, losing the ability to adequately maintain moisture. Without proper hydration, the healing mechanisms of the skin cease to function, adversely affecting the skin's ability to receive nutrients and repair itself. The result is rough, loose, wrinkled skin.
Sure- we all want to have the best-looking skin possible regardless of our age and we’re searching for solutions to maintain the healthy, youthful look of our skin. With the constant marketing and advancements in skin care, littering the path of our quest, it can sometimes be challenging to find an affordable and effective solution for great skin care.
However, what you need to know is that it doesn’t have to be that complex (as many product names might suggest!). What any skin care program should be is simple. That’s it, just simple. The results that we all want are straightforward: we want smooth, supple, clear, glowing, youthful-looking skin.
Luckily, there are constant and ever-evolving advances in skin care and we all have the option for the condition of our skin to improve with age.
If you are looking for a skincare program, there are some guidelines you may want to consider when making your skin care choices:
If your skin care is working, then the condition of your skin will improve, and you won’t feel pressed to cover your healthy skin with makeup when you don’t have to. Most skin concerns are, largely, correctable. You should be able to go out feeling confident that your skin is at its best no matter your age. Also, by wearing makeup infrequently, you are giving your skin more time to repair and restore itself without the interruption of other product chemicals on your skin.
