Do Any Of These Anti-Aging Products Really Work?

By Dina Mills

So do some of these anti-aging lotions really work at all? And what do they do exactly? The answer to if they actually work or not is yes, no and sort of all rolled into one.

There are literally thousands of different anti-aging lotions on the market today. Since women are especially concerned with the effects of age to their skin, most of these anti-aging products are marketed towards women, but many men have turned to their use as well.

Most of these anti-aging skin products will produce the appearance of reduced wrinkles, which can be noticeable in even just a few weeks of consistent use. However, there aren’t any known anti-aging products that will actually eliminate wrinkles or otherwise permanently reverse aging effects to your skin.

Anti-aging ointments will remove layers of dead skin, and hydrate the lower layers giving them a plumper and fuller look that helps reduced the appearance of wrinkles. The wrinkles are not permanently removed, and will reappear after the discontinued use of the product.

Therefore, you have to keep applying it everyday and will go through a lot of it quite fast. Since the cost of many of these ant-aging products is not cheap, maintaining the reduced wrinkle effect they offer can become expensive.

You can achieve a somewhat fuller, plumper skin appearance by using less expensive moisturizers. The only scientifically tested and proven anti-aging cream ingredients are vitamin C and E, as well as Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). These three ingredients are proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but there are likely many other ingredients that will produce similar effects.

Results of any particular product will vary from user to user, and a good strategy would be to try several different brands before settling on one that works best for you.

Anti-aging ointments aside, the two most effective things you can do to slow down the appearance of wrinkles is not smoke, and apply sunscreen at the beginning of everyday if you plan on being outside for more than ten minutes. SPF 15 or higher is recommended. As much as you may want a tan, excessive UV exposure is a sure way to bring on wrinkled skin before its time.
