As a person grows older, the effects of aging are visible on the various body parts and especially the skin. The skin is made up of mainly three layers: the epidermis which is the outer layer, the dermis which is the middle layer and the subcutaneous or the inner layer. The epidermis contains pigments, skin cells and proteins. Aging affects the epidermis the most. With aging, the epidermis begins to thin down and the skin overall looks pale, thin and translucent. The skin also begins to look unhealthy. The most common signs of skin aging are:

  • Wrinkles
  • Laxity
  • De-pigmentation
  • Yellowing
  • Keratoses
  • Poor texture

The use of anti- aging products thus becomes essential to give the skin a healthy and beautiful look. Anti- aging products must be used whenever aging starts affecting the skin and a person experiences any of the above listed signs; this can be as early as when a person is in twenties or can be later when a person reaches the age past forty. This depends on the texture of the skin of the person and how aging affects the skin.

Which anti- aging products are the best?

A wide range of anti- aging products are available these days. Most anti- aging creams promise to make the skin look younger and beautiful. However, it is not necessary that all anti- aging products work wonder on the skin. When choosing anti- aging creams and other products, it is essential to check that the cream contains the necessary elements that can actually fight aging. These specific ingredients include:

  • Retinol which is known to reduce fine lines and pores.
  • Epidermal growth factor that helps in renewing epidermal cells and produce collagen. Epidermal growth factor in anti- aging creams reduces wrinkles, fine lines and sagging. It also strengthens the elasticity of the skin.
  • Antioxidants that prevent the skin from damage caused by the unstable radicals and molecules.
  • Peptides which are a chain of amino acids and have anti- wrinkle properties. These result in a firmer skin.
  • Alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids and chemical peels that dissolve the intracellular glue holding the dead skin cells together thus enhancing the exfoliation of the epidermis.
  • Argerline relaxes the facial muscles and prevents the development of wrinkles and fine lines and firms the skin.
  • Sunscreens that protect the skin from UVA radiations thus preventing wrinkles.
  • Vitamin C that reduces wrinkles and also acts as a healing agent.
  • Coenzyme Q10 reduces aging signs and destroys free radicals.

In addition to using anti- aging products, there are several natural ways that can help one to overcome signs of anti- aging and get a beautiful and clear skin.

Tips for anti- aging

Make- up should be removed with good cleansers and use a good moisturizer that nourishes the skin in the right manner.
