If you’re interested in anti aging natural skin care products, you’re in good company. Millions of us around the world are searching for the best anti aging skin care treatments that will turn back the hands of time, and our desires have fueled a multi-billion-dollar cosmetics industry.
I personally began my research into anti aging natural skin care products over a decade ago. To be honest, I wasted a lot of time and money chasing the dream of firming up my complexion and getting rid of crows’ feet (among other things I wanted to change). Fortunately, I finally discovered an effective, natural treatment system . . . but only after years of searching.
I offer this information in the hope that you’ll benefit from my experience. Here are three costly mistakes I recommend you avoid in your search for the best anti aging skin care system.
1) Buying a brand because it’s popular.
Major cosmetics companies are some of the largest, most profitable businesses in the world. They can afford to hire gorgeous Hollywood celebrities to pitch their products on TV and in the glossy pages of women’s magazines.
But–and I learned this the hard way–popularity has nothing whatsoever to do with quality. Over the years, I’ve tested all of the major cosmetics brands. What I discovered is that while some of them work to varying degrees, the results didn’t last, and my appearance went right back to looking how it did before: wrinkles, crows’ feet, sagging folds and all.
The most effective anti aging natural skin care products that I’ve found actually come from smaller, lesser known companies that don’t have gigantic advertising campaigns. Like your favorite, tucked-away restaurant, they rely on word of mouth from satisfied customers.
2) Buying a product that isn’t safe enough to eat.
This is a major point. If a product is touted as “natural” then it should be just that–safe enough to ingest, with no potentially harmful chemicals. But what you’ll discover, as I have, is that many of the popular cosmetics brands use a frightening amount of industrial chemicals in their so-called anti aging “natural” skin care products.
Like alcohol, for example. You’ll commonly find ethanol, ethyl alcohol, methanol, and benzoyl alcohol used in these products, but these substances actually tend to dry and irritate your skin. In fact, they can even erode your natural acid mantle, making you vulnerable to bacteria and viruses.
Remember: any cream you apply will eventually be absorbed into your bloodstream. It needs to use only natural ingredients, and yes, be safe enough to eat.
The best anti aging skin care treatments–the ones I personally use–are 100% edible.
3) Buying a product that contains collagen.
Collagen, as you probably know, is a protein, a vital element of firm, elastic skin. As we age, the amount of collagen in our body decreases, resulting in wrinkles and lines. Now that the secret about collagen is out, it’s common to find facial creams that contain collagen. The manufacturers promise these creams will get rid of wrinkles and bags, but that’s scientifically impossible.
Why? Because collagen molecules are too large to be absorbed into the body. This is a scientific fact. A “collagen cream,” once applied, will remain on the top layer of your skin. It will not sink deep. It will not increase the amount of collagen stored in your body. It will wash away the next time you cleanse your face, and you’ll be right back where you started.
The best anti aging skin care products, however, work to actually stimulate collagen growth. The effect is dramatic, proven–and long-lasting.
Now that you’re armed with this information about these products, you know three costly mistakes to avoid. There are many more pitfalls out there, however. I discuss them in more detail on my web site, where you’ll also find information about the best anti aging skin care treatments that I’ve found, personally use, and highly recommend.
