Anti Aging Skin Care Products Explained

Wrinkles happen to all of us sooner or later. It's an inevitable part of life. Anti aging creams and skin care products can help minimize the look of wrinkles and slow the aging process. There are many products on the market and choosing the right product can be very difficult. Learning about the products available and what they do can help you select the best products for your skin. Reading reviews of anti aging creams is another good way to learn about products that may be beneficial for your skin.

Exfoliation products are effective for removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Exfoliating the dead skin reveals new skin underneath the dead cells. This aids in cell turnover, which decreases naturally as we age. Alpha hydroxy acids are used in many exfoliation products and anti aging creams. These acids remove the top layer of the skin and have regenerative effects on the skin.

Alpha hydroxy acids are used in both home and professional exfoliation products, such as scrubs, peels and anti aging creams. Home products are generally less intense and have a lower risk of damage to the skin. The strength you choose will depend on your skin type, the number and depth of wrinkles.

Topical alpha hydroxy acid creams assist in shedding dead skin cells. The most common alpha hydroxy acids used in anti aging creams are lactic acid and glycolic acid. Over the counter products contain between two and ten percent concentration. Prescription products contain over ten percent.

Burning and itching is the most common side effect and the degree of the side effects depends on the strength. Prescription products will cause more side effects than over the counter products. If you experience any side effects, stop using the product. Alpha hydroxy acids increase sun sensitivity, so you will need to be careful. Avoid the sun or wear a strong sunscreen and a hat when you are using these products.

Facial scrubs are also used to exfoliate the skin. Be sure to scrub gently and don't apply too much pressure. The motion should be perpendicular to the wrinkles for best results. Follow the directions on the package to get the greatest benefit from the products. Be sure to rinse thoroughly after using the scrub. Don't use these products too often. Once or twice a week is generally enough. Information on the frequency of use will be found in the manufacturer's directions.

Under eye anti aging creams are formulated especially for the skin in the eye area. This skin is much thinner than the rest of the skin on the face. Fewer oils are produced in this area as well. Under eye products are made to reduce dark circles and puffiness that is common under the eye area, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

Eye products work by temporarily constricting the blood vessels in the eye area. This helps prevent fluid from building up in this area and causing puffiness. Anti aging creams for the eyes firm the skin in this area as well. They should be applied with a light tapping motion. Start at the outer corner and move in toward the inner corner of the eye.

To find which anti aging creams and skin care products work best, it's helpful to refer to independent reviews and comparison rankings. In this way you can learn from the experience of others, saving you time, money, and frustration.
