Can you believe the hype of all those anti ageing creams?
Are you beginning to see those inevitable premature signs of aging? The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your skin and around the eyes, perhaps dark circles under the eyes, maybe some age spots or worse.
If so then you’re in good company. So many women spend so much time reading wrinkle cream reviews searching for the best anti ageing cream. But do anti ageing creams work?
It’s a good question. If you believe all the fancy advertising, all those highly paid starlets on television and all of those glossy magazine advertisements you could be forgiven for believing that if you can only find the best anti aging cream then you can reverse those visible signs of ageing and look 30 years younger.
Unfortunately, as you may have suspected, the claims made for most anti ageing creams are exaggerated. You can’t eliminate wrinkles as you age, you can’t get the eyes of a 20 year old with the best eye cream, you can’t take 30 years off your face. Even using those systems advertised as a complete rejuvenation system will not return your skin to the skin of a 20-year-old.
But this doesn’t mean that anti ageing creams don’t work. This is is simply a reflection of the fact that most advertising for anti aging wrinkle creams makes excessive claims on the expectation that consumers will believe these claims and buy the products.
There is solid scientific research about skin ageing which has been done over decades which has led to a deeper understanding of how the skin cells work, why wrinkles form and how ageing negatively affects the health of your skin. And there are now well known approaches to improving skin health, and improved skin health leads to better looking skin.
Unfortunately the well-known companies that sell anti-aging creams are primarily marketing companies. They focus their efforts, and their budget, on marketing their products, and usually produce products that are not as effective as they could be. They use chemical ingredients which may damage your health because these chemical ingredients are much cheaper than other well-known natural ingredients which have very good skin restorative qualities but which are more expensive.
That is why there is now a growing movement towards more natural skin care products, because customers are gradually learning that many mainstream anti ageing creams contain nasty chemical and petrochemical ingredients.
There are excellent natural anti ageing creams on the market. They won’t make a 50 year old woman look like a 20 year old. However they do effectively improve skin health by improving the levels of collagen and elastin in the skin and improving skin moisture levels. This in turn will improve the look, feel and health of your skin.
Don’t believe the expensive advertising, but don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. There are excellent, but often very small, skin care companies producing high quality natural anti ageing creams that do work very well, and at a competitive price.
The best natural anti ageing creams work. But you need to have realistic expectations, you need to avoid the well-known big brand products and you need to find the small niche natural skin care products manufacturers that make high quality products but have low cost marketing budgets.
