Anti Aging Products - What are the Best Wrinkle Creams?

Finding the right anti aging product for your skin can be overwhelming. There are so many products out on the market, that it can be stressful just walking down the beauty aisle, but don‘t give up hope. Before you start your search there are a few things to know though. Realize that aging happens to everyone, don’t become obsessed, be happy, and age well. Read reviews and test out the products until you find a product that smoothes out those wrinkles. Know that you can have that youthful glow and look younger. There are products that really work, but sometimes it takes a little more than that.

Aging happens. We all age. We will all become old and wrinkled, with age spots peppering our faces and hands. However, life is short, so we have to enjoy the journey and that includes the aging part of it. When are you old anyway? When you ask people in their 80s if they feel old, they will usually tell you “No!” They still feel like they are in their 20s. No one feels old. So do you just look old? When do you look old then? Does it happen in your 30s, 40s, or 50s? Everybody will tell you different and when they hit that age, they will say, no way, that’s not old. We as a society place to much attention on aging. Yes, everybody loves to look at the young people in their 20s, but that is only a decade of someone’s life, which is such a small part of life. We should place more emphasis on wisdom and being happy. It doesn’t matter how old you are. It shouldn’t matter how many wrinkles you have. I can say this all day long though, but we still care.

We still spend millions of dollars on anti aging products. We still want to age as gracefully as possible. And there really is nothing wrong with this, as long as you don’t take it too far. It just seems like so many people are taking the whole anti aging thing way too far nowadays. People in their 20s are even getting obsessed about it! They should be enjoying life, not worrying about wrinkles. Although, no one should be worrying about wrinkles, because worrying causes more wrinkles, right? Lol! No, you really shouldn’t worry, just be happy in life, no matter how many wrinkles you have. Let the joy shine through and people will see that, not your wrinkles.

How Far Are You Willing to Go for the Right Anti Aging Product?

Now, I am not saying you shouldn’t strive to look your best. It is important to take care of yourself. I am just saying, try to strike a balance. You can age as gracefully as possible, without getting obsessed about it. You can also be happy enjoying every second of your life. First, you need to realize that an anti aging beauty product can only do so much. If you want drastic, instant results, then you will need to go to a little more extreme measures, such as plastic surgery or botox. Now botox prices are reasonable, but the question comes down to how much are you willing to pay? Can you handle the upkeep? An anti aging product will take longer to show results, but the risks are pretty much non-existent and the price is way cheaper!

There is no one magic anti aging potion that is the best. Everybody’s skin is different and what works for your friend, may not necessarily work for you. Although, it is good to get recommendations on products, just remember that it may not work for you, but something else will. Use products that are right for your skin type. Also, be aware that your skin does change as you get older too. Your skin be more sensitive than it used to be, so reach for the sensitive skincare products and see how they work. Read reviews and then start testing out the anti aging wrinkle products. It just comes down to trial and error. So keep trying them out, until you find one that works for your skin.

Retin-A anti aging products really do work to smooth out your wrinkles, which I have written many posts on. If Retin-A does not work for you, then try peptide anti wrinkle products. Do not use both Retin-A products and the copper peptide products together though, because they counter-act each other.  I have written a post about collagen creams before as well, but I thought I would make a little note of it here as well. Collagen creams really do not work like you think. Collagen molecules are too large to seep down past the first several layers of your skin in order to go deep into your skin. Just keep looking for the right anti aging facial products. Don’t give up hope, you will find the right product for you.

Don’t forget to apply sunscreen daily! Sunscreen should be the first anti aging product that you reach for. The sun’s harsh rays causes wrinkles and a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen can help to prevent those wrinkles. Make sure you read the ingredients, because not all sunscreens work as effectively as others. And yes, you need to apply it daily. Even walking to and from your car can cause damage over time. Plus, all the anti aging wrinkle treatments can make you more photo-sensitive to the sun.

Most of all, make sure you are happy. Try to laugh every day, because that is the secret to aging gracefully. You will look younger, just because your joy is radiating around you. So don’t dwell on the bad, think good thoughts always, and laugh. After all, laughter is the best medicine for the body and the mind, right?

Do Copper Peptides Work?

Copper peptides is another skincare product to use, which helps brighten and smooth your skin.

Some people say they do work and some people say they don’t work. Doctors say they look promising, but not to oversell the use of them. Meaning do not buy a really expensive bottle because whether they really work or not is inconclusive. Some doctors say that if used improperly they can even cause free radical damage. More studies need to be performed.

Many people do like them and notice a difference on their skin. Some people who cannot handle a vitamin C serum use copper peptides instead. Copper peptides are suppose to be the best of the peptides to use.

Do Not use vitamin C serum and copper peptides in the same skincare routine. The copper and the vitamin C do not mix. Copper inactivates vitamin C. Perhaps since copper is a metal the two mix and could release free radicals.... And vitamin C lasts up to three days on your skin. So I would use one or the other. Other peptides are okay as far as I know. With any anti-aging treatment it takes time to see results.

Neutrogena Visibly Firm Night Cream, Active Copper gets great reviews from makeupalley.com!

Anti-Aging Treatments for 50 Years Young!

What is the best anti-aging treatment for ladies who are 50 years young?

Well of course it really comes down to what works for you. Lasers, botox, and plastic surgery of course work the best, because they are the most extreme. I would definitely go for lasers and botox before plastic surgery, because that is all you may need.

I have not research much on lasers and botox, because well I do not need to get it done right now, so when the time comes if I choose, I will deeply research it and get recommendations. Botox sounds cool and not very expensive, even though you do have to get it done every three months. And it is amazing how technology just gets better and better. If you want me to research something specific for you let me know.

As for a topical anti-aging treatment. Prescriptions of Retin-A works the best if your skin can tolerate it. Retin-A has been scientifically proven to work over and over again. Prescription are the strongest formulations you can get.

If you do not want to get a prescription. Then of course I recommend Eau Thermale Avene as I have talked about in many other posts. There are many different formulations of retrinal over the counter and you want to make sure to get the strongest one. Avene’s formulation of retrinal is stronger than other retinol formulations.



Then just make sure to wear the highest UVA/UVB broad spectrum sunscreen that your skin tolerates. If you are afraid to use one of these treatments because they make you more photosensitive to the sun then reapply your sunscreen. Even the best sunscreen will not protect you all day, but if you apply sunscreen in the morning, at lunch, and before you commute home then you should be plenty protected!

Talk to your dermatologist about it if you are really worried. And if you are that worried than perhaps these types of anti-aging treatments are not for you. A good sunscreen after all is the best anti-aging treatment you can do for you skin. Perhaps just a good sunscreen and a nice antioxidant serum is what you need.

I hope all of you beautiful wise ladies find an anti-aging treatment that works for you. And please share any beauty tips you have learned with me.
