Cream For Anti Aging

Vanity plays a large part in the use of popular anti-ageing skin care products and treatments; reducing the visible signs of ageing is the goal for many people as they grow older, and why shouldn’t it be? We achieve this with beauty products that synthesize the production of the protein collagen; collagen makes up approximately 25 percent of the total protein in the skin. Collagen is a member of another family of substances that aid in reducing the signs of ageing. this group is called antioxidants and apart from their cell repairing ability, they may be able to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Vitamin C is probably one of the better known anti-oxidants in use today but the debate about the daily quota required is ongoing. Vitamin C formulated skin care treatments suffer with a particular problem of oxidizing on contact with the air which causes a problem for users and manufacturers.

Other skin care treatments which mimic the effects of vitamin C are being tried all the time which are hoped to be more stable in the atmosphere and also cheaper to produce. These alternative products are not as effective as vitamin C but vitamin E and lipoic acid are anti-oxidants and are now being used.

Found in human blood, vitamin E is not only an antioxidant but is designed to boost the immune system’s resistance to illness; there is some evidence to show it helps prevent diseases including cancer. Lipoic acid is also an energy making component of the body, found in every cell; it is also known to combat the signs of aging very effectively by repairing skin damage caused by the aging process.

Another group of products used to reduce the visible signs of ageing are phytochemicals which are compounds extracted from various plants and used in many anti-ageing skin care products. Phytochemicals prevent occurrence of certain types of cancer; such as:

* Cancer that attacks the Prostate

* Cancer that attacks the Breast

* Cancer of the Bowel

All of which are on the increase globally.

It has also been discovered that there are anti-ageing benefits to vitamins B5, B6 and B12. The field of anti-ageing skin care products is vast and needs a great deal more research. There is no doubt that what has been learned so far is only a small part of the jigsaw puzzle; each year, more is learnt about this topic so reducing the effects of age on the body is just a matter of time.

The amount of research going on in this field will undoubtedly bring results in time, hopefully bringing down the cost of these anti-ageing skin care products in addition to increasing their reliability. It may be time to learn that not every synthetic anti-aging product is going to work; in some respects the real way ahead lies in our own hands as there are many things we can do to reduce the signs of aging – naturally. Natural methods are known, but few people actually follow them; what proportion of the population actually eats healthily, takes plenty of exercise, drink sufficient water and obtain restful and regular sleep?
