Long-Term Effect on Wrinkles - Anti-Aging Skin Care
The most important factor when buying anti-aging skin care products is how it is going to work in the long term. Most anti-wrinkle products work on the surface of the skin to smooth it and make it look tighter. The best products to buy are the ones that work from the inside out, smoothing the skin and preventing new wrinkles from forming.
Does anyone know what causes wrinkles?
There can be many factors that contribute to wrinkles. One cause is sun exposure from tanning. Doctors advise people to stay out of the sun and wear SPF protection. The UV rays are invisible rays of light that penetrate the skin and cause damage to the fibers in your skin called elastin. This elastin is what gives the skin its firm appearance. It is what gives the skin elasticity. When this fiber breaks down it causes the skin to become less elastic and prone to sagging.
Most over the counter wrinkle creams merely moisturize the dry skin making it appear smoother. The best anti-aging skin care products do more than just soften the skin. A good product will work from the inside out to strengthen the fibers under the skin as well as smooth out the surface. Many good products on the market now contain antioxidants and nutrients that work under the skin to repair the damage done by sun exposure and normal aging.
The long-term effect of using these products is that they strengthen the supporting tissues and repair cell damage to allow new cells to be regenerated. It is not just about smoothing the skin, but actually repairing the skin and preventing new wrinkles from forming. Most creams and topical applications cannot penetrate far enough the reach the supporting structures. A good nutritional program coupled with your anti-aging skin care product should yield the most benefits. Nutrition is an important part of having good skin. What you put inside your body is just as important as what you put on it.
