Ask any woman what makes a person beautiful and most will tell you clear, soft and smooth skin is the beginning of beauty. Go on and ask what they dread most in terms of their looks and most will answer sagging, lining and wrinkling- in one word aging. To hold on to youth, women often fall prey and spend a lot of money on products and procedures that promise to turn back the hands of time. The truth is nothing can stop ageing. It is possible however, to prevent premature ageing and delay the signs of it. There are various brands of anti-aging products some of which are endorsed by international celebrities who actually look younger than they are which makes the endorsements so convincing.

The thing is to be realistic about what these products can do. High quality skin care beauty products for mature skin that are based on scientific research do make a difference. One way to find out what works and what doesn’t is to constantly read a skin care product review, in this case specifically those on an anti-aging cream or other product that promises to turn back the hands of time. There are also procedures like Botox, face-lifts, chemical peeling, laser skin rejuvenation and tissue tightening. These procedures are available to make one look younger. With Botox, an injectable drug (not wrinkle filler) is injected just under the skin to keep muscles from tightening so that wrinkles don’t show, most commonly between the brows.

Tissue Tightening

There is also tissue tightening which is non-invasive. Using light and radio frequencies as well as its combinations, this procedure tightens or lifts lax, sagging or wrinkles skin. It works based on the principle that medium to deep heating of skin can cause both immediate collagen contraction and bring about new collagen production within 4 or 6 months. It can be done on eyelids, abdomen and thighs. With injectable cosmetic fillers, whose effects last for about 6 months, fillers of various types and combinations are used to minimize crows’ feet, laugh lines, forehead furrows and wrinkles to give a smoother appearance. It is important to tread very cautiously indeed as far as these treatments are concerned. The danger of these procedures is that they can go horribly and sometimes irreversibly wrong.

They can leave one worse than they were before. It is always a personal decision and people should make informed choices. Most people don’t: they choose to undergo these procedures with a sense of desperation. Do take time to get correct, unbiased information from a dermatologist and also read relevant and an independent product review. One thing that people can do that is safe and effective in order to delay aging is to protect the skin against the sun’s rays. Sun protection is the most important factors to consider from childhood. The sun is the biggest culprit when it comes premature aging. Unprotected exposure is what causes aging like mottled skin, freckles or spots that turn into sun spots as well as lines and uneven tone or pigmentation. Again, product reviews will help you to separate the wheat from the chaff.
