It is impossible to stop the natural aging process, however it is possible to delay it. There are many options available to achieve this, including cosmetic surgery and medical treatments, however the most popular and most cost efficient solution, other than eating well and exercising regularly, is the use of anti aging skin care products. These products can be for both cosmeceutical internal and external treatment.
Internal products should contain oxidants for example vitamins C and E, pyenogenol and grape seed extract. External products should be exfoliating to enable the superficial removal of dead skin cells.
The skin care market is extremely wide and there are many different variations of products for all skin types. Leading brands include Lancome, Elizabeth Arden, L'oreal and Clarins. The choice between these products lies in the hands of the customer depending on their individual needs. Price is also a major factor in purchasing as a worthwhile anti aging regime may not just require one product. The customer may require an exfoliator to firstly remove the dead skin cells, followed by an aromatic plant cream. This enables time released nutrients which moisturise the skin throughout the day, moisture being one of the main factors in delaying the aging process. Firming cream may also be beneficial, which stabilises body contours and tones the skin. Revitalising cream is generally applied before going to bed, as it assists the skin renewal process, therefore regenerating and smoothing the skin, reducing wrinkles.
Prices vary from £5 to £130 per product and are available from department stalls, shopping malls and over the internet. It is therefore advisable to seek advice as to which products would best suit your skin type, beauticians are usually more than happy to advise before purchase.
It is important to understand that the earlier a person begins to look after their skin the longer their skin will look young and healthy. It is beneficial to ensure that make-up includes sun block and if not, it is applied prior to being exposed.
