There are so many products and ingredientsthat tout increase in this, decrease in that , revitalized this and revitalized that and on and onand on. Many empty promises or over-hyped formulations.In order to understand what anti-aging skin care products are intended to do, you have to firstunderstand about what the aging process is for skin. Aging skin has the condition where thestructural proteins that bind and support the skin, collagen and elastin, lose their resiliency andcohesion, causing the skin to wrinkle and/or sag. The bodys ability to produce new collagen andelastin also diminishes with age while the cells in the various layers of our skin decline and thin,losing the ability to adequately maintain moisture. Without proper hydration, the healingmechanisms of the skin cease to function, adversely affecting the skins ability to receive nutrientsand repair itself. The result is rough, lose, wrinkled skin.Of course, we all want to have the best skin possible at any age and are searching for solutions tomaintain our skins youthfulness. In our quest and with the constant marketing and advancementsin skin care, it can sometimes be difficult to find an affordable and effective solution for great skincare.However, what you need to know is that it doesnt have to be that complex (as many of theproduct name suggest!). What you should consider is that what any skin care program should beis simple. Thats it, just simple. The results that we all want are simple: soft, smooth, clear,radiant, younger-looking skin.Too much of the time now days, skin care marketers are trying to convenience consumers thatthey need formulations that no average consumer can understand, or day and night products, orformulations that highly successful, well-known personalities would use. If you think about it, howmany products do you currently have in your storage that were purchased because of thesemarketing strategies?With these types of advertising, there are so many re-touches and questionable representation ofthe product effectiveness because the personality also receives so many other types of servicesand procedures that impact the condition of skin that you really cannot know the true results thatthe highly marketed products will bring.The positive side of the situation is that there are constant and ever evolving advances in skin careand we all have the option for our skin condition improving with age.If you are looking for a skin care program, there are some guidelines you may want to consider
when making your skin care choices:Protect your skin while you are in the sun and extreme weather. Use proper protection.Drink lots of water. Its so important for proper skin hydration and keeping your bodyclean from toxins and other chemicals that could cause adverse reactions in your skin.You should know what you are using on your skin. If you cant pronounce the majority ofthe ingredients or there are more than 5 or 6 ingredients, then it may be too complex for what yourskin actually needs. Skin care that uses these types of formulations are full of fillers, coloring,preservatives, and chemicals that are not beneficial for your skin and come with a high pricewhere the consumer is paying for the filler more so than the active ingredients. These types ofingredients are only needed to fill up the bottle and make it appealing to smell or touch.Sometimes products will contain multiple active ingredients but in order to formulate theseingredients, it requires that other ingredients be added. You end up paying for something yourskin cannot use. The cheaper ingredients are filling up the bottle. Try a similar approach to howyou would choose your food (skin is live cells and needs nourishment). Watch the labels andchoose products with skin healthy formulations where the active ingredients are 80% of theingredients.You should use a good and effective cleanser. This is the most important step in yourskin care process. Many cleansing products do not leave your skin feeling smooth and deeplycleansed. Find a product that goes deep into the pores, provides light exfoliation and conditioning,and does not leave any residue. Applying moisturizers and treatments on top of skin that is notcompletely clean will just make the problem worse by clogging pores and showing a rough,uneven skin texture.You should be able to adjust your program to meet your skins daily needs. If you cantadjust the use of the products to match what your skin needs on a particular day, are you reallygetting what you need? Your program should be able to hydrate, heal, and renew your skin. Youshould see this gradual improvement everyday and not have to wait 30 to 60 days for results. Itslike watering a plant. A plant that needs water as a critical nutrient will respond immediately to thewater being absorbed through its roots and perk up within a few hours. Watch your skin for aweek or so and youll know how effective the program can ultimately be for your skin care needs.You should be able to quickly go through your regime. It should not take more than 5minutes. A skin care program should include the steps to cleanse, exfoliate, treat and/ormoisturize. You should be able to pick and choose what you need based on you skins currentcondition for that day.You should not be able to feel the product on your skin. In order for skin care to reallybe effective, it must penetrate the skin cells. Product sitting on top of your skin is product that isnot penetrating the skin layers. Products with fillers and other unnecessary, complex formulationswill may not get deep or directly enough to provide the treatment and results you are looking for.You should not know that you are wearing your skin care.You should feel comfortable with makeup optional skin. If your skin care is reallyworking, your skin will improve and you will not want to put makeup on it if you dont have to. Most
skin problems are correctable to a large degree. You should be able to go out feeling confidentthat your skin is at its best (with minimal makeup) no matter what your age is. Also, by usingmakeup less, you are giving your skin more time to repair and restore itself without the interruptionof other product chemicals on your skin.Karen Reiter is a certified, advanced skin care specialist who works with a number of skin carecompanies and has her own client based.
