Turn on your television, or open a women’s magazine, and you’ll invariably find ads for multiple anti aging creams. Each ad promises fantabulous results while showing women with nary a line on their faces. Could this be true? Remember, the models in the ads have been spackled, made up and airbrushed within an inch of their lives.
When choosing a cream for yourself, do your research, find out how it works and use your common sense. For example, several creams contain ingredients your body naturally slows in producing over time. The claim is spreading these creams on your face replaces what your body has slowed in making. Some people love these kinds of creams.
Other creams contain peptides and, in my opinion, have the best chance of doing a little something. Peptides combined with fatty acids can penetrate deeper into the layers of skin – exactly where they need to go to duke it out with those pesky wrinkles. (Yes, I did some digging ) I also like natural ingredients. There are so many vitamins, like vitamin E, that have been shown to help slow the march of time across my face.
So, the big question: do anti aging creams work? Yes, some of them can, but only to a certain degree. If you’re 40, you’ll never look 25 again from using an anti aging cream. But there are some creams out there that have been shown to help a little, so be realistic and give it time to work.
When you look in the mirror and see all those lines, remember that they’re not only there because your skin is starting to break down a smidge. Those crow’s feet, the lines above your cheeks and the wrinkles beside your mouth were formed over time from smiles. How can that be all bad?
