Anti-Aging Face Creams Which To Use? It may depend on your age, not just your skin type.
Which anti-aging face creams would be best for you? Are all anti-aging skin creams/products created equal? It's a fact that as time passes our skin ages. Luckily the skincare industry has us covered, and has developed skincare for each age milestone and individual problem. Chances are you've seen the anti-aging skincare hype on TV, in newspapers, and online. All trying to persuade you to try the latest and greatest anti-aging miracle. Most of these ads are geared to make you believe you can pretty much turn back the clock, and recapture your once youthful skin. However, can any facial product really do that? I must admit these ads make me very skeptical. And I am sure I am not alone? It may surprise you but many physicians are also skeptical, and profoundly question the claims and the promises the cosmetic companies make. There is not a lot of scientific study data out there to prove the many claims made by cosmetic companies. So without actual published medical studies to prove the cosmetic companies' claims, should we believe all the hype? There are of course within each cosmetic company experts that are involved in testing each product, so one may want to keep an open mind when deciding to buy any given product.
Pentapeptides Amino-Acids Good For All Ages
The anti-aging treatments that are widely being touted today are products that containing a compound called pentapeptides. These are compounds that contain small groups of long-chain amino acids. These long-chain amino acids act as chemical messengers to the skin and other parts of the body. These particular peptides help the body repair itself by increasing the cell production of collagen. Collagen is proven to play an important role in skin aging. When you are a child and young adult your body has an abundance of these wonderful pentapeptides, that keep the production of collagen flowing. As you age, the river runs dry. Hence skin begins to age, and you lose elasticity, which also can lead to wrinkles. The skin which is poorly nourished starts to thin, and dry. It's never to early to incorporate Pentapeptides Amino-Acids into your nightly skincare regime to replace needed collagen.
Do Amino-Acids Decrease Wrinkles? They Do If Started Early Enough
It is pretty conclusive that the new collagen building pentapeptides that are being used in many of today's face creams show good results that aid in skin rejuvenation. Take the widely used Strivectin-SD. Strivectin-SD cream was being manufactured as a cream that would help with stretch marks. It had wonderful results on this age-old skin problem. So why not use it on the face? Low and behold, it showed to be very effective on the face, by increasing skin's elasticity, reducing wrinkles, and adding wonderful amounts of moisture to the facial skin. Ads for Strivectin-SD asks the question, "Isn't this better than Botox?" A great many Strivectin-SD users say yes, and are paying $135.00 per 6 ounces tube. So if you're not ready to pay $400.00 per Botox injection, give Strivectin SD a try. There are many popular creams and serums on the market today that possess peptide technology. Such as Oil Of Olay's Regenerist, Principal Secret's Reclaim, and Avon's Anew Clinical Line and Wrinkle Corrector (Price: $32 for 1 ounce), just to name a few.

Taking good care of the skin is fundamental and doing it at early stage really pays off in the long run. I like the idea of working inside out for my skin. You have a great list of creams, its not my first time to hear them, they're commonly recommended by people especially in beauty-related blogs.
