Concerning your diet and health, it’s very important to know that everything goes inside it can appear on your skin, and the same result is from what you are applying to your skin. What kind of anti aging/wrinkle product you choose to put on top of your skin also can make a difference in relation of how your skin will appear to your “age”.
The first important thing when it comes to anti aging products is to know that you are giving your skin the right ingredients that promote healthy, younger, and less-wrinkled skin appearances. Now you can find out what every anti aging product should contain, no matter of its label (firming, lifting, rejuvenating or re-sculpting).
For Better Results Treat Your Skin Like Your Diet
For better result of your skin care always compare the needs of the body with the needs of the skin. Everyone knows that our bodies need nutritionally-balanced foods to keep us healthy. The same goes for the skin, too. Remember that one ingredient cannot enhance the function of the skin, as well as one nutrient cannot fuel your body with healthiness. Therefore, the skin actually needs a balanced mixture of most powerful ingredients to prevent wrinkle appearance. Skin is the largest organ of the body and requires a greater range of ingredients to be healthy and beautiful and prevent revealing signs of aging.
The 5 Things That Every Anti Aging Products Should Contain
Antioxidants are essential for skin care and there are many powerful ones that should be found in every skin care product. Antioxidants vary from different forms of vitamins (A, C, and E), beta carotene, glutathione, superoxide dismutase, selenium, green tea, soy extract, pomegranate extract and grape extract. More antioxidants included in your skin are better for your skin care!
Healthy and young skin naturally contains skin-identical substances that keep it smooth, fight infections, protect from the environment, retain water and repair the skin structure. These skin-identical ingredients vary from ceramides to lecithin, amino acids, collagen, cholesterol, glycerin, glycosaminoglycans, fatty acids, polysaccharides, hyaluronic acid, sodium PCA, elastin, proteins and many more.
Skin cells due to result of the aging process, sun damage and hormone fluctuations become everlastingly damaged, which means they regenerate into irregular, mutated, coarse, imperfect, and older cells. The only way the skin can begin to produce healthier and younger cells is to give it substances that can communicate to the skin cells, and to start making good cells instead of making bad cells. The most important and vital skin-communicating ingredients for better skin care are adenosine triphosphate, niacinamide, lecithin, retinol and synthetic peptides.
The sun causes accelerated aging of the skin and causes skin cancer. In fact, the sun is one of the most influential natural carcinogens. Even 75% of the causes of aging are unprotected sun exposures. Therefore, using a daily sunscreen is very important for your skin health. To ensure you’re getting adequate UVA protection, your sunscreen must contain at least one of these ingredients: avobenzone, ecamsule, titanium dioxide, Tinosorb or zinc oxide.

Now that you know what should be in any “anti-aging”, “anti-wrinkle” or moisturizing-type of cosmetic products for skin care, the next important question is actually, what type of product you should buy that suits your skin type.
- Thicker creams, balms, and ointments contain substances that are best for dry skin. There are hundreds of moisturizers, but these are some widely-used examples: non-fragrant plant oils, shea butter, cocoa butter, fatty acids, and triglycerides.
- Serums and lotions are best for normal to combination skin because of their lightweight texture.
- Gels, liquids, or nonaqueous serums are best for oily or blemish-prone skin because they not clog pores and neither inhibit or stimulate skin oil production.
- Gels are also best for combination skin, but in only applying on oily areas of the skin and products with a creamier texture only on dry spots.
