Skin Aging; Why Do We Need Anti-Aging Cream?
Choosing the right anti-aging cream can be a daunting task with so many choices on the market. But don’t worry, we are here to help you find the best one for you.
We will start off by looking at what causes skin aging and what kind of factors affect how quickly it happens. Then we will go over the different types of creams and their benefits, before finally looking at some of our favorite products on the market today.
Skin aging is a natural process that occurs over time. The process can be accelerated by external factors such as smoking, sun exposure, pollution, and lifestyle choices such as diet and stress levels.
With advancing age, some changes occur that must be treated to keep the skin fresh and clear:
- The skin becomes more rough & dry.
- Wrinkles and sagging occur due to the loss of collagen and some elastic tissues such as elastin.
- The skin becomes more vulnerable and sensitive, which leads to the appearance of capillaries under the skin.
- The skin becomes more prone to bruising due to the weakening of the blood vessel walls.
- Some degree of pigmentation occurs if we do not use sunblock creams during the day.
Different types of Anti-Aging Creams?
There are many different types of anti-aging creams on the market. Each type is designed for a specific time of day to be worn.
Night creams are applied before bed and help to repair skin overnight. Night creams are used for several purposes such as moisturizing the skin, preventing, and treating wrinkles, and treating pigmented spots. We thus prefer to use a night cream that contains most of the required ingredients to achieve these purposes.
Morning creams are applied in the morning after cleansing and before makeup. These creams help to hydrate the skin and protect it from environmental damage during the day. Sun protection should also be used in the morning
