Get the Facts; Not Fiction Behind Anti-Aging Products and Their Active Ingredients Activate the Anti-Aging Process

Get the Facts; Not Fiction Behind Anti-Aging Products and Their Active Ingredients Activate the Anti-Aging Process

The aging process begins when we enter the world and the effects of aging are evident in  our bodies through out our lives.  Beginning in our 20's, the signs of aging start to  become noticeable. Genetically programmed chronologic aging causes changes in  collagen and elastin, the connective tissues that supply firmness and elasticity to the skin.   The genetic program of individuals is different, so the loss of skin firmness and elasticity  occurs at different rates and different times in one individual as compared to another.  As  skin becomes less elastic, it also becomes drier and underlying fat padding begins to  disappear.  With the loss of underlying support by fat padding and connective tissues,  the skin begins to sag; it appears less supple and wrinkles form.

Although wrinkles, ! lines and age spots are formed by the natural effects of getting older,  one way to prevent them from appearing early on in life is to avoid direct sunlight and  use sunscreens with SPFs 15 or higher.  And, although most of us have some form of sun-damaged skin, there are ways to regain healthy, smooth skin. After many years of  research, scientists, dermatologists and plastic surgeons have discovered that a variety of  natural ingredients and vitamin extracts significantly help slow down and even reverse the signs of aging skin.  These ingredients are now found in many physician developed and  physician recommended anti-aging skin care products, which are specified below.

Vitamin A (Retinol) - Topical Vitamin A has been suggested to help build collagen fibers  within the skin in addition to its more superficial exfoliating property. This is! the basis for  its use in minimizing the appearance of fine wri nkle lines.  Vitamin A or Retinol is the  main ingredient found in TYK Young Again, M.D. Forte, DDF and SkinScience  products.

Vitamin C - Vitamin C or ascorbic acid acts as an antioxidant and is considered vital in  wound healing because it aids in stabilizing collagen. When applied topically, vitamin C  can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and may lessen the severity of sunburns.  This healing ingredient is found in SkinCeuticals, Cellex C and Obagi Cffectives skin care products.

Vitamin E - Vitamin E is another antioxidant that shows to have anti-inflammatory effects  on the skin. When applied topically, vitamin E has been shown to improve  moisturization, softness and smoothness and also provides modest photo protection.   Vitamin E is found in Cellex C, Exuviance and MD Forte products.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) - AHAs are designed to smooth fine lines and surface  wrinkles, to improve skin texture ! and tone, to unblock and cleanse pores, to improve  oily skin or acne, and to improve skin condition in general. AHAs are the main  ingredients found in MD Forte, TYK Young Again, Super Skin and SkinScience  products.

Glycolic Acid - Glycolic acid is the most active and beneficial of the  Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHAs) in skin care.  Once inside the cells, the acid triggers new  formations of collagen to plump cells and the ground substances in the skin to reduce  wrinkles on the skin's surface. Glycolic acid is proven to be very effective in the treatment of acne as well as in cosmetic uses.  Glycolic acid is found in products by Gly  Derm, MD Forte, Z. Bigatti and Super Skin.

N-6 furfuryladenine (kinetin) -  The nature-identical plant growth factor, furfuryladenine,  retards the aging of plant cells as well as in vitro human skin fibroblasts. This natural,  anti-aging ingredient has been proven to! reduce wrinkles and fine lines and is exclusively found in Kinerase creams and lotions. This is a proven alternative for people with  sensitive skin or people who are sensitive to products containing Retinol and Vitamin C. Copper Peptides ? Copper Peptides are the latest scientific breakthrough in skin  rejuvenation. Copper has been found to naturally firm the skin, enhance elasticity, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Copper is the main ingredient in products by Neova and  Osmotics.

Pal-KTTKS - Pal-KTTKS is an effective ingredient for reducing fine lines and wrinkles.  It's found to promote a smoother, younger complexion quickly, without with out  expensive and painful chemical peels, surgery or injections. This patented peptide  solution is found in StriVectin-SD.

Green Tea Extract - Green tea's anti-inflammatory and anti-growth qualities are found in  many skin care products designed to reduce the appearance of puffiness, wrinkles, fine  lines and large pores.  Green Tea ! is found in the Dr. Brandt skin care line, Z. Bigatti and  Gly Derm products.

TNS - The biotechnology of the skin's natural healing process has arrived with the first  tissue repairing complex containing growth factors found in normal, healthy skin.  Unlike  anything else currently on the market, TNS is the next level of skin rejuvenation that  delivers dramatic results, for smoother, softer, younger looking skin.  TNS is found in  SkinMedica's TNS Recovery Complex.

Many customers ask which anti-aging product is best and we always respond by saying  that there is no "best" product.  Since every individual's skin is different, the results of  using anti-aging products will be different as well.  We recommend that you consult with  a skin care professional prior to use of any new skin care product to determine your skin  type, skin condition and possible sensitivities to active ingr! edients.  Your skin care  professional may recommend specif ic products, or you can try a few on your own based on your consultation.  If you are not happy with the first product you try, try another  one.  It's important that you choose a product and skin care regimen that makes you feel 100% comfortable with the look and feel of your skin.  

Customers also inquire about when they should expect to see results from using  anti-aging products.  Again, we respond by saying that results will be different for each  individual, generally due to the condition of one's skin prior to use.  However, across the  board, we say not to expect a miracle, as there is no anti-aging product on the market  that provides overnight results.  Whether you are trying to reduce the appearance of fine  lines, wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness or age spots, the process is gradual and takes  anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks depending on the severity of your problem areas. After  a! llowing the products time to take effect as well as following product directions, you can  be sure to notice significant improvement in the appearance of your skin.

To see the quickest results, you will have to undergo professional cosmetics  procedures.  While procedures such as laser treatments, injections and dermabrasion  produce the fastest, most noticeable improvements, they are all are somewhat painful or  uncomfortable and very costly.  In addition, pre and post treatment plans are required to  achieve maximum results, which consist of using skin care products, that are also proven  to be safe, effective, painless and less expensive alternatives to professional cosmetic  procedures.

Please note that with the use of any new skin care product, it is highly possible that your  skin will react to the ingredients.  You may experience irritation, redness, dryness or a  mild breakout, which sho! uld only last for the first 3-5 days of use.  If you experience a ny  of these reactions for a longer period of time, please discontinue use and consult a skin  care professional.  It is also recommended that prior to using any new skin care product  to consult with a skin care professional.

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I
    had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually
    lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
