What to look for in an anti aging cream…..

Aging…. It’s inevitable, but thankfully it can be done gracefully if you take the time to pay attention to the way you’re treating your skin. It is possible to begin looking older, faster, by developing wrinkles, uneven skin tone, bags under your eyes, and dry skin. There are a few simple solutions that should be implemented daily before leaving home like exfoliating and putting on sunscreen.

Exfoliating is very important when it comes to skin care. Not only when it comes to the face, but the entire body. Knees, elbows, hands, and feet can benefit from exfoliating. All you need is an exfoliating rag, soap, or an exfoliating gel, or soap suitable to the area you are trying to treat.

Sunscreen is also important. Harsh and frequent exposure to the sun can cause dark spots, and dry skin, which can result in you looking older and more tired than you actually are.

Although those solutions seem pretty simple you probably either do it already, and still want to find the perfect anti aging cream, or you need extra assistance from the anti aging cream. Consumers can get rather confused about which anti aging cream is best for them. That; no one can answer for you, but it does help to know which active ingredients to look for when shopping for your ideal anti aging cream.

Retinol or Vitamin A is an antioxidant that helps rejuvenate skin cells. This ingredient helps create newer and healthier skin cells and increases the skins collagen production. Retinol ultimately creates healthier firm skin creating a growing texture, and a strong barrier to protect the skin from further harm.

Circuminoids also known as diferuloylmethane is popular amongst the anti aging ingredients because it fights against inflammation, sun damage, and skin irritation. This ingredient helps preserve the healthy skin cells while suppressing the over production of melanin when the skin is exposed to sun light. It also kills cancer cells.

One of the more popular ingredients whether it is found in anti aging cream or any cream for that matter is Niacinamide. This ingredient is part of the Vitamin B family and helps even out skin tone, and reduces the appearance of blemishes, while preventing the skin from losing water. Being that it helps improve the skins moisture the skin can then naturally produce collagen. It strengthens the outer layer of skin making it easier to renew skin cells, ultimately eliminating old damage to the skin.

All of these ingredients essentially help your skin rebuild from previous damage, and work for itself rather than temporarily covering up flaws. They nurse the flaws of your skin and help you shed old problems while preserving healthy cells to create stronger skin that looks new. This ultimately results in a smoother aging process.

Right now CC Creams are all the rage and can be beneficial to someone wanting to cure discoloration. What about the consumer who suffers from discoloration and other aging woes? Anti Aging CC Cream comes to the rescue for that demographic. It’s the best of both worlds and a brilliant solution, containing the perfect recipe for color correction and anti aging. There are two products that actually are Anti Aging CC Creams; Olay CC Cream- Total Effects Tone Corrector Moisturizer, this cream is said to fight the 7 signs of aging. Also there is Hydroxatone: Anti Acne CC Cream the only CC Cream on the market that fights acne as well as discoloration. Both products contain Niacinamide, which works wonders in the anti aging department.

So the next time you hit the stores looking for an anti aging cream. Be sure to remember the key ingredients to look for and be sure to exfoliate. It goes a long way!
