First things first, aging isn't really the problem here. No anti-aging cream can stop or reverse aging (time travel!). The real issue is premature aging. Premature aging occurs when the cells in your body lose their capacity to reproduce effectively at a higher rate than normal. Anti-aging creams can arrest rapid degradation and restore the aging process to its natural state. Many factors accelerate aging. Let's examine the important ones.
The most common reason for early appearance of signs of aging is exposure to sunlight. The sun's rays carry ultraviolet radiation. If you don't protect your skin from UV radiation, the sun's rays will damage collagen fibers. As a result, the protein structures that support your skin become weak. On the surface, this manifests as fine lines and wrinkles.
Another significant cause of premature aging is free radical damage. Free radicals, a common by-product of biochemical reactions, are highly reactive oxygen molecules. These molecules attack nearby cellular structures. In other words, free radicals eat your body from the inside out. If left unchecked, the free radicals will accelerate the aging process.
An anti-aging cream protects your skin from both tormentors. Creams with adequate SPF, more than 30, stops the ultraviolet rays from reaching your skin by absorbing them or reflecting the. Such an anti-aging cream will also have antioxidants that react with free radicals, rendering them harmless. In addition to sun protection and free radical resistance, your skin requires adequate moisture to function properly. So, the anti-aging cream must also double as a moisturizer.
To compound the benefits of an anti-aging cream, introduce positive lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, eating a balanced a nutritious diet, exercising regularly, and resting adequately. When you integrate the use of anti-aging cream with a healthy lifestyle, you can take years off your skin.
