There is no shortage of anti-aging skincare products available on the market. Just after the release of one miracle product comes another. So, how do you know which ones will work and which ones won’t?
If you are concerned about the quality and appearance of your skin and want to explore skincare products that can give you youthful, healthy skin, we have some recommendations for you. Before beginning the use of any skincare products, it’s best to discuss it with a doctor. Many skin conditions have underlying causes that need to be addressed from within.
Here are some skincare products to consider discussing with your doctor:
SPF Containing Sunscreen
Sun damage can wreak havoc on your skin and accelerate aging. If you’ve spent time tanning under the sun, you likely see signs of damage. Sun damage can result in sunspots, the development of fine lines, and premature wrinkles. The sun has photo-aging effects that can cause you to look older than you really are. Sunscreen use on a daily basis is a must if you want to protect your skin and slow down the signs of aging that it brings along.
Vitamin C-Infused Products
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects against free radicals that cause premature wrinkles. In addition, it can also stimulate collagen production. When you shop for anti-aging skincare creams and lotions, select ones containing vitamin C.
Alpha Hydroxy Acid Containing Products
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are fruit acids that have been used for decades to treat skin issues. AHAs are glycolic, citric, and lactic acids and are the most widely used anti-aging agents. They are found in various creams, serums, facial washes, and toners.
AHAs are exfoliants that remove dead skin cells and stimulate skin turnover. This process is faster when you’re young, which is why your skin remains supple, clear, and fresh-looking. As you get older, this process slows down. Regular use of AHAs can give you smooth and even-toned skin. AHAs can also help improve acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles.
Topical vitamin A-based drugs are called retinoids. The most well-known retinoid-based anti-aging cream is Tretinoin. Retinoids work to speed the turnover of skin cells, increase the production of collagen, and stimulate the production of new blood vessels. All in all, it works to reduce hyperpigmentation and smooth out facial lines and wrinkles. Tretinoin is a prescription drug given to patients with acne and sun damage.
Ultimately, no anti-aging skincare product is going to work if you have a deficiency. If you are aging prematurely, it’s worth having your hormone levels checked. As you age, you will see issues that affect your skin and health. Treatments like sermorelin therapy and bioidentical hormone therapy can help keep you healthy and young. Talk to a doctor about whether these treatments can help improve your health and the appearance of your skin.
