Aging Skin Problems

Your skin will age naturally as part of the aging process. I love my little smile lines and crow’s feet around my eyes because I’ve earned them and they have a positive side of my character that has laughed, experienced life, and loved to the best of my ability.

But, if I were completely honest, I would have to admit that sometimes I wish I could do away with my aging skin problems. Things like sagging skin, discoloration and “age spots”, and new wrinkles that appear every year.

The biggest question I get asked is if there is a really good way to reverse skin damage and rejuvenate cells to a more youthful state without having to resort to drastic measures like laser treatment and plastic surgery.

Fortunately for you, the answer is “yes”. Modern scientific research and testing has lead to the creation of several products that now have ingredients which are proven to really work on aging skin problems.

As you shop for a natural anti aging skin care product range, be sure to look for ingredients in your facial products that have been clinically proven to stimulate your collagen and elastin growth. As we age, these two proteins in particular are in short supply. As a result, your skin elasticity, tone and overall condition will begin to decline.

To look younger, you need your skin to make more collagen and elastin.

In addition, another important factor is to prevent further skin damage which occurs through oxidation. Oxidation is a process that happens when free radicals damage cells. You absolutely want to eat plenty of antioxidants from fruits and vegetables for great skin, but you also want to use products that contain antioxidants for further protection. Antioxidants basically destroy the free radicals that would otherwise wreak havoc on your skin cells.

One common ploy that some skincare manufacturers use is to put only a tiny amount of active ingredient in their product, just so they can put it on the label. You need to be sure that your products have enough active ingredients in them to actually be effective.

If there isn’t enough active ingredient in the product, it won’t be very useful. Another common tactic is to advertise “collagen” as an ingredient, but actually, topical collagen cannot be absorbed into the skin because the molecules are just too large. Instead, you want active ingredients that will stimulate your skin to make its own new collagen.

Two unique ingredients to look for when buying a new product are Xtend TK and Phytessence Wakame. XtendTK has been clinically proven to stimulate the regrowth of collagen and elastin. Phtessence Wakame, which is derived from a type of Japanese sea kelp, also rejuvenates and protects your skin from further damage. Chances are that you have not even heard of these ingredients yet, as they have been primarily marketed in New Zealand.

Always be sure to do your own research on products and don’t just rely on the marketing claims and gorgeous models when selecting your anti aging skin care products.

Personally, I much prefer a company that spends their money on new research and innovative ingredients versus marketing. I think you will be far more satisfied if you do a little research and get a product that really does work to remove aging spots, sagging, and wrinkles. With the right products, you really will be able to turn back time, reduce those aging skin problems that we all dread and save money that would otherwise have been spent on skin care products that don’t deliver on their promises.

I have been using the Xtend Life skin care range for almost 3 years now and cannot recommend it highly enough. Their products are clinically proven to show results, using only the finest ingredients that are safe and healthy for your skin. They even offer a 90-day money back guarantee because they are so confident that their products really are the best on the market.
