Noticing age-related changes and the signs of aging in the mirror, many women do not want to solve the problem professionally. Along with this category of women, there are ladies who have long “admitted their love” for anti-aging creams. At the same time, even before reaching 30 years of age, they have little idea of what the real effectiveness of such products can be. To answer the age-old and painful question about the benefits of using anti-aging skincare, we are going to share the following facts.
Any cream can be anti-aging
If you sleep little, smoke, eat poorly and live in the rhythm of constant stress, your skin will go on strike sooner or later. Despite the fact that you looked young and fresh with this lifestyle when you were 25-27 years old, you will certainly need aging prevention. Surprisingly enough, you don’t have to buy a cream marked as an anti-aging product to delay premature aging.
Don’t rush to pay for a trendy anti-aging cosmetics brand. There are many professional masks, gommages, serums and peels that will help you replenish the reserves of structural proteins (collagen and elastin) and slow down the aging process of the skin. At the same time, the anti-aging effect may not be indicated on their packages.
If the cream solves your problem and the result suits you, the product is good for you and it can definitely be called rejuvenating, regardless of whether it has the ‘anti-aging’ word in its description. Unfortunately, for the same reason, nothing prevents the manufacturer from writing ‘anti-aging’ on an ordinary moisturizer and calmly watching the sales of his products grow.
Anti-aging care does not solve global problems
Of course, everything is very individual. We all have different genetics and we age in different ways. But it makes no sense to use an anti-aging cream at 45 years old and at the same time constantly deny yourself a visit to a beautician for a serious anti-aging procedure.
If you have numerous deep wrinkles, a noticeable loss of elasticity and gravitational ptosis that has already left its imprint on your face, relying only on an anti-aging cream is short-sighted and weird.
Professional cosmetic solutions are needed, so cream alone will not help.
Fortunately, if you have been “supporting” your face until this age, anti-age cosmetics can perfectly fix and prolong the result that you received from an experienced cosmetologist. “Anti-aging” creams with Centella asiatica extracts, with growth factors, with peptides, with succinic and lactic acids are especially recommended for aging and damaged skin.
They help restore blood circulation, reduce puffiness, restart collagen synthesis, relieve stress at the cellular level, and restore skin barrier functions. Fabulous ingredients they are! In any case, it makes sense to plan the purchase of anti-aging cosmetics at the age of 30 (or at 25, if the climate and environmental conditions around you are far from being perfect). Remember that the sooner you start maintaining healthy skin, the easier it will be to win the battle for youth in the future.
Effective anti-aging products cannot be organic
The fashion for philosophy in the style of “organic is better, more efficient and safer” has created favorable conditions for marketers who decided to mix the trend of anti-aging products and natural cosmetics.
The funny thing is that the representatives of mass-market brands were the first to place the mark “organic anti-aging” on their tubes. This idea was then picked up by luxury brands, and it became simply impossible not to pay attention to it.
No matter how hard they tried to distance themselves, professional cosmetic products could not resist the temptation. Therefore, even in the professional market, you can sometimes find a jar with the sacramental “100% natural anti-aging effect”.
Organic cosmetics are not a competitor to real anti-aging treatments.
Despite the fact that honest organic producers (certainly, you can find such) pay great attention to ensuring that their raw materials for future products are environmentally friendly and boast the maximum content of active ingredients, they can hardly compete with the real anti-aging products (with peptides, for example) in terms of their effectiveness.
Let’s look at things adequately. Completely natural cosmetics can reduce the loss of transepidermal moisture, it perfectly enhances the protective functions of the skin, but, unfortunately, it cannot correct serious age-related changes, slow down the aging process, and rid you of deep wrinkles.
Even if we talk about simple skin moisturizing, it is still preferable to use a cream with hyaluronic acid. As you know, it never appears in the composition of cosmetic products in an organic way.
