I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t want to stay young or look young till they die. This is precisely the reason why more and more businesses are selling anti aging products. Forever young is the theme of any generation.
Now, how do you choose from the plethora of products available in the market? You can either take vitamins to make and keep your skin glowing or you can choose to apply anti aging products. Now again, which of the so many brands of anti aging products will you use?
I hope the following tips will help you choose wisely.
Vitamin C based anti aging skin care products can work wonders. These products work by enabling the synthesis of collagen (a structural protein that is found in skin). This category of anti aging skin care products is related to anti-oxidants. Anti aging skin care products that are based on vitamin C are, however, posed with the danger of getting oxidised themselves (as they come into contact with air during their usage). Some anti aging skin care products are based on the derivatives of vitamin C, which are more stable and less expensive. However, the effectiveness of such anti aging skin care is not as much as it is for vitamin C based anti aging skin care products.
Besides vitamin C, vitamin E and lipoic acid are anti-oxidants too. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble anti-oxidant that is found in human blood and helps in building resistance against infection. Vitamin E is also known to inhibit cancer. Liponic acid is known to combat the signs of aging very effectively by reversing the skin damage caused by the aging process.
Phytochemicals form the other category of anti aging skin care products. Phytochemicals are special chemicals that are extracted from plants. There are a variety of phytochemicals that are in use today. Phytochemicals prevent occurrence of cancer of certain types; these include prostate cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer. That is why they find their place in anti aging skin care products.
Other vitamins that you should look for in your anti aging products are B-vitamins like B5, B6 and B12.
Anti aging products can work wonders but none can beat the natural ways of keeping your skin and body healthy. Drinking lots of water, getting a good night sleep, exercising regularly, maintaining healthy eating habits and keeping stress at bay are essential means of delaying the aging process. And since food is not sufficient to get the right amount of vitamins and minerals, you need to take supplements.
