Reversing Aging


Women are constantly in search for the best products in the market which could provide them with the rejuvenating miracle they have always been looking for in various Anti Aging products.

Flawless skin, refined texture, and the softness you would love to touch, these are the constant promises and benefits of Anti Aging Creams we find in cosmetics department stores, today.

Women are constantly in search for the best products in the market which could provide them with the rejuvenating miracle they have always been looking for in various Anti Aging products. Whether the product is imported or locally made, whether it is pricey or affordable, as long as it can fulfill the nagging need in most women to retain their youth, cash registers would always have a field day in stores.

If we take a look at the shelf giants today like Biotherm, L'Oreal, Zirh, among others, they are known for the "special" ingredients they contain--the ones guaranteed to offer the best results overnight or for a considerable length of time depending on skin type and the individual's beauty and anti-aging demands. However, there are only two kinds of anti-aging cream in the market today regardless what is stated on their labels. It is time to define the difference between naturally and chemically manufactured products. Yes, we set our sights on the benefits, but the ingredients worth a look, too.

Beauty products always carry taglines whichtitillates the senses - everyone wants to become beautiful. Beauty always captures the world, so they say, in fact, every famous man or woman in history always has another man or woman behind who influenced the course of their fate. What we don't see beneath the surface of elegant plastic container and within plastic cream bottles are beauty ingredients that may be harmful.

Let us separate the common setting of a grocery shelf into two: natural skin creams from artificial creams. Although the packaging will tell us that they offer common benefits, the packaging will never tell us if they have side effects, and most importantly what they truly contain.

Let us take a bottle of natural anti aging cream for an example. The product's contents may come from leaves like natural Aloe Vera, Asian Papaya, fruit and vegetable essence, and other naturally acquired substances. Evaluating the ingredients of this cream, we will surely agree to one thought: there are less chances of having side effects due to the natural aspects of the product.

Natural anti aging creams have always been less suspected to cause cancer and skin problems. Irritation and allergies have less chances of occurring due to the compatibility of natural essence to most skin types. Natural anti aging creams are known for their special ability of adapting to different skin types without causing irritations, wounds, and rashes. Aside from being just the "friendly type" of cream, natural anti aging creams can produce the same nanoparticles which artificial items are injected with. These nano-particles, also termed microenscapulation, make the natural ingredients easier to be absorbed by the skin.

Unfortunately, not all natural creams last long enough to provide the user their best results. Natural creams are easily spoiled unless injected with preservatives; but opting for that would mean losing the natural essence of the product.

Let us now pick up a household name from the shelf were artificial creams belong to. If we view them closely, they may contain uncommon ingredients. They either contain most of the laboratory-infused ingredients or they are plainly too artificial thus unsafe for usage.

Also known as artificial anti aging creams, these products contain unnatural peptides, Vitamin A or retina-A, Alph-Lipoic Acid, and Hyaluronic Acid or DMAE. These products are possible factors for skin rashes when used onto the wrong skin type, and worse, they could be the very sources of skin cancer and other skin abnormalities

As a cosmetics user, you are always open to two options: go artificial or go natural, but for the choice of safety and for the choice of receiving par benefits, going natural would be the best option.
