With the variety of anti-aging products available today, women are trying them on much like they are fitting clothes. They come in all forms and sizes and each one of them claims to be the best anti-aging solution there is.
But the latest star in the world of anti-aging is what they call “liquid gold”, otherwise known as the Moroccan Argan oil. This product has been receiving a lot of positive feedback and women are trying to get a hold of this rare oil that many say can do miracles.
While there are lots of things that you can do and products that you can use to delay the signs of aging, it all boils down to what works for you. But still, the cardinal rule of having healthy skin is to live a healthy lifestyle. By doing this, those beauty products that you use for enhancing beauty will also do their job.
So what are the different anti-aging products in the market today? Let us take a look at some of the popular ones and understand their benefits.
Over The Counter Anti-Aging Creams
A number of products sold in drugstores and supermarkets assure that they can reduce fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots that appear because of skin aging. They can also reverse the damage brought about by the sun.
Are they effective? Studies and a number of research show that a significant number of these OTC wrinkle creams have ingredients that may, up to some extent, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But a lot of these ingredients have not been subjected to thorough scientific research to really prove their power.
If you really want a skin overhaul, you would not probably find it in over the counter bottles. Though they can make your skin appear slightly better depending on the product, your frequency of use and the kind of active ingredient present in the anti-aging product.
Prescription Anti-Aging Products
Prescription wrinkle creams make use of Vitamin A derivatives, commonly known as retinoids. This makes the skin firmer and helps in erasing fine lines and wrinkles.
Creams that contain retinoids are definitely stronger than over the counter ones. These products have a more obvious effect on the skin, be it in the beginning or advanced stages of aging.
Still, it is important to keep in mind that these creams cannot take away all signs of aging. You may need a stronger dosage if your lines are already very noticeable. But doctors urge using the lowest possible dosage until your skin has adapted to the product.
All Natural Anti-Aging Products
This is the category where the popular Moroccan Argan oil belongs. This rare and robust oil comes from the nuts of the Argan tree which is exclusively found in southwestern Morocco. This is the secret product used by the Berber women for centuries to nourish, maintain and keep their skin healthy.
Because the oil is 100% natural and organic, it does not contain harmful chemicals that can have adverse effects on the skin. It is loaded with Vitamin E, unsaturated essential fatty acids, Polyphenols, Ferulic acid and Carotenoids which individually and collectively fight skin aging.
