When women start to see those fine lines developing around their eyes or their lips, they begin thinking about anti aging products. The only problem is, with so many anti aging products lining the shelves of our favorite drug stores and beauty stores it can be hard to decide which ones to choose.
So what are you looking for in an anti aging skin care product?
Some of the most common signs of aging are wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and sagging skin. A lot of women may not actually have all of these problems, so you can start eliminating products based on need. If you don’t have sagging skin, then you don’t need to buy products that feature an anti-sagging formulation. If you only are starting to develop fine lines around your eyes, then choose products for the eye area only.
Given how every woman is seeking the fountain of youth, there are now several anti aging products that extend past the face, such as anti aging products for the neck and the chest. Neck anti aging products tend to focus on tightening your skin and keep it wrinkle-free so as to prevent any sagging skin or the dreaded “turkey gobble” from developing. A lot of these products also are loaded with natural moisturizers, such as vitamin E and C, as well as alpha hyaluronic acid (AHA), peptides, retinol and anti oxidants.
Anti aging products for the chest area are also created with the idea of preventing wrinkles and sagging. These products will also help tighten, tone, and lift the skin on your chest.
There are some great anti aging products for other areas of your body out there, such as your hands and legs, that will help diminish the appearance of age spots as well as plump up the skin so that they look more youthful.
One of the best anti aging products you can buy, however, is actually the foods that you put into your body! Believe it or not, but what you eat plays a major role in how quickly (or slowly) we age and the foods we put into our mouths can help extend or decrease our lives exponentially.
Focus on eating organic fresh fruits and vegetables, load up on the whole grains (such as whole grain bread, wraps, brown rice and brown pasta) and indulge in foods that are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, such as salmon and nuts.
Lastly, here are some ways you can definitely keep your body, both inside and out, looking younger:
Do not smoke! Not only does this age the inside of your body, but it ages the outside too. You may not be able to see the signs of aging if you smoke and are younger, but after the age of 35 you will certainly notice yourself aging faster
Do not tan! Sun is great, but if you plan on going out into the sun then plan wearing at least SPF 30 on your skin.
Do a mental “detox” at least once a day and release your stress. This may include a walk, a hot bath, or reading a book.
