Cream

uring our early years, the skin
renews itself rather efficiently and
just a plain moisturizer or a hydrat-
ing cream is sufficient for your skin to stay
smooth and tender.
As we grow older, the skin renews itself
at a slower rate. At the age of 40, wrinkles
appear to be more prominent and deeper.
Pores are bigger and fines lines both around
the mouth and eyes are more visible, making
your complexion uneven. At this point in
time, moisturizers just won't do. Fortunately,
nowadays there's a wide variety of anti-aging
creams and products designed specifically
for every type of skin and particular needs.
Basically, depending on the ingredients,
anti-aging creams work in
either of two ways. The first
type controls or inhibits muscle
movements in order to soften
wrinkles and hamper/prevent
new wrinkles from forming.
The ingredients in the cream
penetrate the skin's outer layer,
stimulating collagen and elastin
production while at the same
time repairing damaged cells.
The second type of anti-aging
creams work by shedding the
old outer layer of the skin, thus
permitting the healthier/newer
skin cells to appear. Be advised
though that both of the above
do not work overnight. These

take effect gradually;
you will notice over
of a couple of weeks
that your skin will appear smoother. Full
effect usually is visible within one to three
months.
Below are some of the major benefits
when using anti-aging products:






Equalizes skin pigmentation
Tightens and firm the skin
Helps prevent new wrinkles
Helps repair any signs of sagging
around the neck and chin area
• Fills in creases in the skin
• Stimulate the production of collagen

• Makes fine lines appear more subtle
• Eliminates and reduces wrinkles
• Stimulates the production of elastin

With all the various anti-aging products
available in the market, how do you go about
choosing an anti-aging cream?
Here are some easy guides that can help
you make up your mind:

• Decide what you want to do in the first
place — look at yourself in the mirror and
figure out what you want to happen. Want
to get rid of those age spots? What about
the dark circles around the eyes? Or
the crow's feet? By deciding on what
you want to treat, your choices will
narrow down and you will be able to
find a product best suited to fit your
needs. Better yet, before buying get
professional advice.
• What type of skin do you have?
For dry skin, a cream that has extra
moisturizers is needed. Oily skin?
You need something that absorbs oil.
You'll need something in between for
normal skin.
• How much are you willing to
spend? This is more of a budget issue;
decide how much you are willing or
capable of spending before making
any decisions.
