“4 Dirty Little Secrets Skin Care Manufacturers Won’t Reveal”
Most women are pretty clued up when it comes to choosing an anti-aging face product and they should be as over $20 billion a year alone is spent in the U.S on products ranging from $10 to $400, so knowing what to spend your hard earned dollars on is crucial.
However, as you will read below, there are 4 very important facts you should know when it comes to the following 4 types of anti aging creams:
- Anti-wrinkle creams
- Under eye circle erasers
- Scar eliminators
Ranging as high as even $350-$400, you would think the more you pay the more effective the product.
Not true. Recently in the U.S a day time medical show brought in skin experts to test a number of products ranging from from just $10 up to $400.
Results concluded that the a number of the $20 creams were easily as effective as the $400 product. These included:
- The Earth Science A/B Hydroxy Acid Night Rejuvenator
- The Brazilian Peel Professional Strength Glycolic Acai Facial Treatment
- L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Double Lifting Treatment
- Sudden Change Under-Eye Firming Serum
- Too Faced Lip Injection Plumping Serum
- Talika Lipocils Eyelash Conditioning Gel
If you google search “online sellers”, or even try Amazon you should be able to pick them up at a similar price – around the $20 mark.
Skin experts also revealed that once deap wrinkles set in it’s virtually impossible aside from surgery to reduce them so obviously avoiding getting them in the first place is the best tactic.
The sun and dehydration are the easiest ways to develop wrinkles so using sun screen and drinking plenty of water is the best advice.
Under Eye Circle Erasers
It seems conclusive as dermatologists suggest, that the best under eye circle erasers contain caffeine.
Aside from the lack of sleep and a bad diet, dark circles are generally a genetic trait and one which topical creams have difficulty treating.
Allergies, thin skin or under eye veins tend to be the main contributors, so as mentioned the most effective application is a caffeine based eye cream as they can temporarily help with under-eye puffiness by reducing water retention giving the under eye area a smoother appearance.
The dark circle above the eye can also be tackled with a caffeine based cream as they constrict the blood vessels, but it will only effect the top layer so if they exist deeper under the skin it will take some time, but again remember to stay hydrated at all times, sleep well and apply a caffeine based eye cream in the morning and before bed.
If you are after a face cream that contains acid, vitamins, peptides and anti-oxidants such as acai or resveratrol, then always use a moisturizer instead of a cleanser as cleansers stay on the face too short a time as they get washed off, so they have little if any profound affect.
If you opt for a specialized cleanser then make sure to choose the right one for your skin type. For example, you shouldn’t opt for harsher chemicals if you have dry skin, as alpha hydrocxy acids for instance can irritate the skin.
Consulting a skin expert is always advisable.
Ok, the bottom line about scars is that it’s highly unlikey a beauty product can eliminate them. When you get an injury, the blood clot which instructed new cells to form a scab and then eventually come off will reveal a scar tissue which over time will fade but will never actually match the unharmed skin.
This is due to a limited amount of melanin in the blood. Some products do contain melanin so if it’s a scar you’re trying to treat then a melanin based cream is your best option. They will soften the look of the scar, however only surgery can truly tame the skin.
