Skin Experts Seem To Dissagree About Anti Aging Products

By: JAN WILSON


Considering the increased popularity of items such as anti aging products and wrinkle creams, it makes sense to examine exactly who is using these formulas. The answer may shock you. Despite the logical thought process that these creams are being consumed by only women in their late middle ages, their popularity is much more wide spread than that. In fact, in most surveys both men and women are consuming these products at ages as young as {{18|21}}} years old. So this spawns the question, what is the right age to start protecting your skin?!br>
Strangely enough there is much debate as far as when to start. Many skin specialists believe that the only necessary steps to take when you are young are to use a moisturizer that contains SPF. The argument being made is that the more potent wrinkle reducing products are simply too harsh for younger skin in addition to the fact that it is simply not necessary. In fact, many feel that when young people are using these products they have simply been tricked intobuying something. Perhaps advertising has gotten to them, or a specific sales representative has recommended something that isn't necessary. Regardless, everyone agrees that the optimum way to maintain youthful skin is to take a proactive approach.
So if being proactive is the best policy, why is there so much discussion? The answer is simple; many specialists feel that the skin care market is being taken advantage of by so many wrinkle cream companies, when there are natural solutions available. Why should a teenager spend cash on a medical grade solution, when proper nutrition and protection from the UV rays is so much less expensive? The truth is that everyone’s skin is different. And even an eighteen year old can have already harmed their skin to a degree that will require a treatment later on in life. In fact most of the damage that people do to their skin is done during their younger years. So why not start the process of healing fairly early on?
As long as the consumer understands which products they are using, and what specific signs of aging they treat, there should be no problem starting a skin treatment routine. There are many natural products available, that simply enhance the production of collagen healing the damage already done and increasing the skin’s ability to protect against future wrinkles. All specialists agree that an increased knowledge of the potential damage that we can do to out skin is a good thing. Does that mean that this knowledge should not be shared with our young people? Of course not. The caution voiced from skin care specialists is not simply don’t use products, it is simply be cautious.
So what is the premier way to protect your self from being tricked by marketing ploys or products that simply don’t work? The answer is rather obvious. Do your research. Do not take just anyone’s opinion. Take the time to look at the ingredients a formula contains and inspect the manufacturer. At a time with so much information readily available on the internet, there is no reason to not access it. Especially, when it comes to something as essential as your skin. It is one thing that you can not hide. You are stuck with the skin you have, so take the time to research and protect it.
Many consumer sites and products are available, and should be used to their full extent. Professional reviews and clinical studies are also amazing research tools. Take the patience to review as many as possible, bearing in mind that many may have comprimized opinions. Duplicate content and text should be a warning signal. And use your instincts, if something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t.
So while there is not correct answer as to when exactly is the right time to start using anti aging products, there is always a time to start protecting your skin and taking preventative measures for the future. Research your skin type, and potential problem areas. Take your time to inform yourself about solutions available to help your specific needs, and if you deem it so, buy them. The most important thing to keep in mindis when it comes to your beauty, how you feel about yourself, is paramount.
