The business of anti aging skin care is booming. There are products for the body designed to improve skin’s elasticity, firmness and reduce stretch marks. Facial products are intended to reduce crow's feet, improve the appearance of fine lines and give the skin a more youthful glow. From the $300 per ounce product, to the $18 drugstore brand, there is something for everyone. For many of us, Botox, collagen fillers, and laser resurfacing are not feasible considerations. The price tag is high, the risk can be significant and in the end, the results are uncertain and at best, temporary.  


Frequently, anti aging skin care focuses on reducing the effects of toxins such as sun, stress and pollution. Since the skin absorbs the majority of what is placed on it, selecting products that contain healthy ingredients is a natural, safer option than those with synthetic ingredients. Botanicals and marine extracts calm and soothe irritated skin. Aloe Vera, essential oils and vitamin E hydrate while smoothing the surface of the skin. Olive and Shea butter leave the skin soft and improves its tone and texture. Multivitamin-based skin care cream will also work to regenerate skin cells and reduce signs of aging.


Anti aging skin care products are only part of the equation for younger, healthy looking skin. Quality crafted, all natural products can help reduce the existing signs of aging and slow the progress of new lines and wrinkles. However, if your diet and lifestyle are not filled with fruits, vegetables, fresh air and exercise, you will only reap some of the rewards these products can provide. To help slow the aging process, stop smoking and try to stay away from people who do. The smoke damages existing skin cells, and slows the production of additional cells, increasing skin’s dryness and deepening wrinkles.  


Most anti aging skin care includes protection from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. Overexposure to this type of radiation can damage the body’s ability to produce collagen, which keeps skin plump and fresh in appearance. Ongoing, chronic stress adversely affects all aspects of your health, including that of your skin. Getting seven to eight hours a night will give your body time to recover from the day, and provide your skin with the opportunity to detoxify and regenerate.
