As aging sets in, our skin naturally begins to fold, sag, and crinkle in more places than just our smiling lines. Without proper care, these lines can deepen much faster than necessary, causing us to look and therefore feel older than we like. There are many advertising campaigns for all types of products that promise a more youthful complexion, but we must approach them all with caution. While some products may simply sit on your skin neither doing help nor harm, others can actually cause damage, especially to those with sensitive skin.
Many anti-aging skincare products rely on acids such as alpha-hydroxy or salicylic to initiate the shedding of dead skin. Unfortunately, this can dry out the skin completely, leaving it raw and red. On the other end of the spectrum, lotions often clog the pores with oil and fragrance chemicals, causing acne or even allergic reactions. Other products use compounds such as DMAE, Argireline, and Hydroquinone which some researchers have found to be harmful at certain levels of use.
So, what is a safe anti-wrinkle agent on sensitive skin? It is important to remember that every person’s skin is different, which makes it impossible to say that a certain product will cause no negative reaction whatsoever. There are, however, some good products out there that have managed to eliminate most known harmful substances, and will leave your skin looking and feeling great.
StriVectin, a relatively “new face” on the skin care market carries StriVectin Intensive Power Serum for Wrinkles, which aims at brightening the skin, promoting clarity, and reducing the length and depth of wrinkles. Serums are gentle, and are one of the best anti-wrinkle solutions for sensitive skin.
Dr. Brandt’s Xtend Your Youth Face Cream was formulated to help in the early signs of visible aging. This product also works to soothe the skin and fight inflammation.
Dr. Brandt’s line also carries other great anti-aging products, including a Dark Spots No More Serum which helps with lightning aged skin.
No7 is another great line with several anti-aging products, including Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Anti- Aging Serum.
In addition to applying serums and creams, cleansing the skin with good products help maximize brightness and clarity for a more youthful look. Beautiful Skin Age Defence Cleanser by No7 is a moisturizing face soap that is gentle enough for daily use. Masks can also be useful in deep cleaning, although they must be gentle enough not to cause abrasions or pull on the skin.
Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask by Bliss helps rid the skin of toxins, and gives a rejuvenating healthy glow to tired skin.
Discovering the perfect anti-aging regime is a different journey for everyone. Remember to read labels, pay attention to what you are putting on your face, and listen to your skin. When trying a new product, apply it to a small area to test how your skin will react. There is a wonderful product out there that will work for you, it just needs to be discovered!
