Anti Aging Skin Care - Is aging reversible?

Anti Aging Skin Care - Is aging reversible?
by Tommy Engan

There are 2 different types of aging: The first is called Intrinsic aging. The bad news is that it is inevitable. Intrinsic aging, otherwise known as the natural aging process, is determined by your genetic disposition. It determines how fast or not stuff starts "falling apart".

What is the good news then? The good news is that this kind of aging, believe it or not, counts for only 10-20% of your aging! This is very good news, as it means that you have a high percentage on your side to prevent aging. Welcome to the era of anti aging skin care.

This brings us to the second type of aging - Extrinsic aging, AKA environmental aging. This type of aging begins early in your life and is caused by a number of outside factors, which make your skin age prematurely. The main factor is photo aging, or exposure to the sun.

Other damaging factors include environmental pollution, gravity, facial expressions, sleeping patterns, wind and heat, not to mention habits like smoking, poor diet, alcohol and not consuming enough water.

This all means that aging is highly preventable! The sooner you start taking care of your skin, the better. You know how some people look shamelessly young for their age? Now that you're in on the secret, you'll know that it's not always from good genes. Maybe they're just taking good care of themselves. Why not do the same?

One of the best secrets in the fight against aging can be found in high-quality, pure anti aging skin care creams. Beware, however. The web offers a stupendous array of anti aging skin care companies, all of whom try to convince you that their anti aging skin care cream is a miracle of anti-aging. Most of them are definitely not. Here are some things to ask, to help you find a high-quality anti aging skin care cream that actually does what you want it to, which is to prevent aging and make you look younger:

* Do they have a free trial/money back guarantee?

* Do they offer verifiable testimonials from people with before/after pictures? If not, keep shopping - anyone can erase wrinkles in a program like Photoshop.

* Are the ingredients clearly listed? If not, move on - that's a clear red flag.

* Are the ingredients thoroughly explained? If you see a list of unpronounceable ingredients with no details or verifiable explanation as to their anti aging qualities, how could you possibly know if it will work?

* When you read about the anti aging skin care cream, does it seem scientific? If not, run the other way. It's very easy to get sucked in to cleverly written sales-letters. If you're going to be impressed by anything, let it be the extent to which the company goes to document scientifically why their product works - not sales fluff.

Asking these questions will drastically increase your chance of finding, and enjoying a high-quality anti aging skin care product.
