The best anti aging products are those that help with skin care. In addition, there are other things that people can do within their lifestyles to help with fighting aging in their skin, such as getting enough rest at night, staying fully hydrated, and cleansing their skin twice per day every day. There are also ways to promote smooth skin such as by lying on the back at night instead of the side or stomach. When lying on the side or stomach, the face is pressed into the pillow which causes creasing on the skin. When this is done night after night, the skin starts to retain these lines and they evidence themselves as wrinkles. It is also important to cover up the face with sunscreen and a hat or visor when going outdoors for long periods of time since the sun dries the skin out and causes it to look older than it is.
When choosing anti aging skin care products, it is important to read the ingredients to see what is actually being used in the product. If looking for a natural anti aging skin care product, the ingredients on the label should be readily understandable, since natural ingredients should be fruits, vegetables, plants and flowers that are essential to the care of the skin. If synthetic ingredients are used, they are usually long, complicated names that are hard to sound out. In addition, there are some anti aging skin care products that have ingredients in them that are popular today but have not been proven to do what the proponents claim they will do. Some of these ingredients are theocyn, resveratol, sirtuins, beta-hydroxy acids and acetyl hexapeptide-3. If these ingredients are in the anti aging skin care product, other ingredients that have been clinically proven to work to provide healthier skin should also be there.
Green tea is an ingredient that has been partially proven to work but the full clinical trials have not been run to completely prove its effectiveness. MMP inhibitors are also fairly popular in the anti aging skin care products, but it also is still in the process of full clinical testing to solidify the results. Some ingredients that have been fully proven in clinical trials as anti aging skin care products are estrogens, retinoids, and most Vitamin C combinations and derivatives. Also, combinations of Vitamin C, Vitamin E and ferulic acid have also been proven to work in anti aging skin care products.
