Anti Aging Products – Do They Really Work?
Whether you like it or not, with age, wrinkles are bound to show on your body, Somehow, instead of viewing wrinkles as a graceful sign of growing old, lots of manufacturing companies, reputable and otherwise, see them as a business opportunity to make a fast buck.
What these companies bank upon is the fact that there is no way of confirming whether the product will work or not unless you actually buy and use it. Most of the times, after you find the product to be useless the fly by night operators have vanished. And, unless you have been harmed to a great extent, you will most likely decide against suing a reputed company.
The fact remains that the print and electronic media bombards advertisements of anti aging products. And they will have you believe that it is possible to avoid getting wrinkles. Every advertisement of an anti aging product, cream or lotion, professes that it will help you look younger.
It deserves consideration that if there was any such anti aging product, then how is it that we see so many people, affluent and otherwise, with wrinkles around us.
A little bit of understanding of how the aging process works will help you to understand that it is an irreversible process. Aging is a natural phenomenon. Just as other organs of our body lose essential elements with time; our skin too looses many things with age. One of these things is collagen.
The advertisements of anti aging products go to such lengths as claiming that their product will put collagen back into your skin to smoothen the wrinkles and lines. This, however, is far from the truth. Collagen, if applied to the skin, will soften it for a couple of hours at the most. The same is true for any other substance, chemical, or herb that an anti aging product may claim to be made of.
The best cure can work only from within your body and not by applying it on the surface of your skin. It might sound amazing and may even startle you, but the best anti aging product is available free, well, almost free and it is water.
Water is essential, as essential as food or even more for our body. If we do not consume enough water, it is bound to show on your skin and face. The aging process cannot be halted but sufficient intake of water will go a long way to keep your skin smooth, just as vitamins do.
Rest assured, there is no miracle cure for wrinkles and all anti aging products are plain hogwash. Instead, look for something that will help you look fresh by removing dead cells from the surface of your skin.
Learn to live with your wrinkles: they look graceful and are not going to go away with any product, whatever the advertisement may profess.
