Which anti-aging skin care treatments give the best results?

Rejuvenating aging skin using a combination of clinically proven ingredients provide the best results.

We all wonder if there really is a "face lift in a jar" and, if so, what is it and where can I get some- right now!

Of course, we all would love such a simple remedy.

But unfortunately, there isn't an all-in-one magic bullet for skin care treatments that can miraculously provide us with the fountain of youth right in our own little pot of magical face cream.  

The truth of the matter is a bit more complicated than a face lift miracle in a jar.

Why does treating the signs of aging skin seem to be so difficult?

Because everyone's skin is different!

There are a variety of signs of aging that we see occur as the years march along that can include, (just to name just a few):

  • Sun damage
  • Dry, scaly skin
  • Dark age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Mottled skin tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sagging facial skin
  • Ruddy skin texture
  • Loss of skin elasticity 
  • Decrease in the skin's healing abilities
  • Dark under-eye circles
  • Puffiness under eyes

Obviously, even if you have just a few of these aging skin symptoms, don't you think it is rather unlikely that just one simple, little face cream- the miracle cream in a jar- is going to effectively address such a range of issues?

A magic wand maybe, but who has one of those?
(One that actually works that is).

But don't despair, effective skin rejuvenation is possible with accurate information and a well thought out strategy.

The first, and foremost, in creating an effective skin rejuvenation regime is to use clinically proven anti-aging skin care treatments.

Although the market is saturated with products that claim to banish wrinkles forever, firm sagging skin and make those age spots just up and disappear right before your very eyes; there are in actuality, only a handful of anti-aging treatments that have been independently clinically proven to be effective.

Start your skin rejuvenation regime with clinically proven skin care treatments that will effectively treat your aging skin concerns.  For example, evidence-based beneficial treatments include Vitamin A- (better known as retinol), glycolic acid- (an alpha hydroxy acid, AHA), Vitamin C Ester, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin K.

The trick is to make sure that the products you select have incorporated an appropriate percentage of the active anti-aging ingredient in order for that product to be an effective skin care treatment.

If you review the ingredient list and the product only has a 1% concentration of glycolic acid, then why bother?  An effective concentration of glycolic acid should be at least 8%. (Although, any product with a concentration of glycolic acid over 15% should only be administered by a professional, you don't want to harm your skin!)

The Vitamin A, retinol products should have at least a .15% concentration. The strongest over the counter retinol product that you can buy without a prescription is typically 1%. 

Quick Note:

The higher concentrations of both glycolic acid and retinol can be rather strong so start very, very slowly so your skin has a chance to get use to them or the skin can become quite irritated, potentially leading to issues.

Just using these two skin care treatments can accomplish a great deal in rejuvenating aging skin including:

  • Exfoliating dead skin cells that collect on the surface of the skin
  • Stimulating skin cell repair
  • Encouraging new skin cell growth
  • Improving fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stimulating collagen production
  • Improving skin tone and texture
  • Decreasing enlarged pores 
  • Improve acne and outbreaks of blemishes
  • Improving the overall health of the skin

Not bad for beginning a new skin rejuvenation regime!

Important Tip:
The layering of different anti-aging treatments is an extremely important and effective strategy to use if you want to achieve significant results.

Adding a powerful antioxidant such as a stable form of Vitamin C Ester will help protect the skin from further damage and improve the skin's healing ability.

A "Super" Vitamin K product is well known for improving those dark circles under the eyes and is helpful is reducing the redness from broken capillaries that can give the skin a red, ruddy appearance.

There are quite a few other effective anti-aging treatments that you can find incorporated as active ingredients in skin care products, so it is important to know what to look for and at what percentage of concentration is recommended.

For example, although extensive independent clinical trials on DMAE have yet to conclusively prove that this popular anti-aging ingredient firms sagging skin, preliminary studies have been quite promising. Hydroquinone in concentrations of 1% to 2% can be used to bleach those stubborn age spots that can blossom with wild abandon as we age.

There are simply hundreds of combinations for skin care treatments that can be tailored to address your own aging skin care needs so do some research and don't be afraid to experiment a little bit to find the best combination that works best for you, your aging skin concerns, and your skin type.

Begin with the tried and true basic anti-aging skin care treatments then gradually build your routine from there. . .

Glycolic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and Sunscreen

Vitamin A- retinol, DMAE or Peptide, and Under-eye Treatment (if applicable)

Choose products from reputable and well-established companies that focus on the science and clinical merits of facial rejuvenation treatments that include the recommended percentages of active anti-aging ingredients.  It's not about the price.  Spending several hundred dollars on a product doesn't make it any better or more effective than a $30 treatment.  It really is all about the formulation of active ingredients of the skin care treatment.  

There are many "consumer friendly" product lines including. . .
