How do anti-age creams?
 As we age, we all have the skin loses its firmness and elasticity, wrinkles appear, especially from frequent exposure to the sun. Smoking, poor diet, unhealthy lifestyle and poor environment accelerate the aging process. And so it wants just a little pause.

And every woman in the hope that the clock could be taken back, ready to spend enough money on anti-aging cosmetics. And anti-aging creams and serums, we know - the products do not come cheap! But we spend, as manufacturers, we promise that we will look 10 years younger. But is good "work" these products?

If you answer this question briefly, then said, "Yes, work." But, unfortunately, is not as effective as promised glossy pages.

So, we understand, what can actually anti-age ingredients in popular cosmetic products?

1. Hydrated skin looks younger.

 How do anti-age creams?
   All the anti-aging skin products contain moisturizing ingredients. When the skin is hydrated, it appears more stretched, smoothed, wrinkles and fine lines are reduced, as if filled, which gives youthful skin appearance. But these results are only temporary, you should only stop using the tool, you will immediately see that all has returned back. So, of course, is to recognize that some rejuvenation creams with moisturizing ingredients present, but only if you use them. Wrinkles smoothed, but not all, keep this in mind.

2. AHA and BHA acids make the skin smooth.

   Alpha Hydroxy Acids (hydro alpha) such as glycolic or lactic acid, or BHA acids (e.g., salicylic acid), have an excellent peeling property. They remove dead cells on the skin surface thus revealed a bright and healthy skin that was under the dead cells. Skin looks smoother, significantly reduced the number of wrinkles, especially around the eyes and mouth. But to say that these acids have rejuvenated, it is also wrong, as you know.

3. Antioxidants help prevent external harmful effects on the skin.

 How do anti-age creams?
   Antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, green tea extract, grape seed extract and coenzyme Q10, combat free radicals and neutralize them. Namely, the free radicals are considered to be the main cause of skin aging. However, while the antioxidants prevent skin from the formation of new wrinkles, they can not save you from wrinkles that already exist. So, this component of anti-aging products is necessary, but it is not universal.

4. Vitamin A actually helps to reduce wrinkles (but do not expect miracles!).

 How do anti-age creams?
   Almost all of the above ingredients are advertised by manufacturers as reducing wrinkles, in fact, they can only slow down a little bit of their appearance or visually reduce .  Only a single component which is able to reduce wrinkles really is - vitamin A (called Retinoids, retinoids) .  Vitamin A prevents the action of free radicals, exfoliate your skin, reduces the destruction of collagen (which occurs with age in all), and even contributes to its production .  And it is the only component that has scientific evidence that is able to remove wrinkles .  But! Unfortunately, even the existence of this wonderful vitamin does not mean that if you start using retinoids for your skin, it will look 10 years younger every week .  To see the results of the action of vitamin A on the skin, it is necessary to use this component of the regular, permanent and only after some time you will see the improvement of the skin and some rejuvenation .

As a conclusion   I want to note. Anti-age cosmetics - this is not a miracle food that can turn back the clock. While modern facilities with anti-aging effect can only fill small wrinkles little bit to straighten them, make eye less, but not to remove them once and for all. Luxury anti-age means superstars with retinoids like and are able to cope with the wrinkles, but the experts say, the concentration of this component is so small that they have to wait for enough time to see the first results. And, of course, these results are not so revolutionary, and can not be completely smooth skin, otherwise we'll have long to go with young and smooth faces.

One more thing. Anti-aging funds we need, although, as can be seen from the composition of these funds, many (moisturizing, exfoliation) in anti-aging care, we can make on their own. In addition, no one has yet canceled the placebo effect. And if you give your serums and creams feeling of youth and confidence, feel free to choose them. And if you are skeptical about the effect of anti-aging cosmetics, the composition of study and look for only those components that you need.
