It is quite normal to expect people to want to look attractive and this might explain why anti-aging skin care products are so successful; it is only natural that as people get older they want to continue looking young so will use products that help them achieve this. Skin is important so a great deal of effort goes into the preparation of beauty products especially those that increase the production of collagen, which is the primary protein in skin; twenty-five per cent of the skin's protein is collagen. Most anti-aging products (collagen included) fall into a category of natural everyday products we all use; known as antioxidants, they are the bodies method of slowing down the aging process.
Probably the best known of these anti-oxidants is vitamin C although no-one really knows just how much we should have each day. Vitamin C formulated skin care treatments suffer with a particular problem of oxidizing on contact with the air which causes a problem for users and manufacturers.To overcome this problem, manufacturers use alternative skin care treatments that still provide the same benefits but not the high manufacturing costs. These alternative products are not as effective as vitamin C but vitamin E and lipoic acid are anti-oxidants and are now being used.
Vitamin E is found in the blood and is an antioxidant that is also used to increase the bodies defenses against other health problems; it helps build resistance against infection like cancer for example. On the other hand, lipoic acid or alpha-lipoic acid is necessary for energy production which keeps us alive; it can also help reduce the aging process which affects the skin.Phytochemicals aren't produced by the body but are extracted from a number of plants and used in many anti-aging skin care products to combat the signs of aging. A further benefit of these phytochemicals is their ability to prevent the onset of certain cancers; such as:· Cancer of the Prostate · Cancer of the Breast · Colon Cancer
These types of cancer are also becoming some of the most prevalent worldwide.It has also been discovered that there are anti-aging benefits to vitamins B5, B6 and B12. The use of anti-aging skin care products is a huge scientific field to research and has far greater potential than just producing goods that reduce the visible signs of age. There is no doubt that what has been learned so far is only a small part of the jigsaw puzzle; there is still a long way to go however, before methods that successfully reduce the effects of age are commonplace.
With the research that is now taking place, many people are confident that in time, more effective, cheaper anti-aging skin care products will be discovered. Scientific research into anti-aging products is still in the early stages but they should never be relied upon; in some respects the real way ahead lies in our own hands as there are many things we can do to reduce the signs of aging - naturally. Regular sleep patterns, exercise, a good healthy diet and less stress will all contribute to reducing the signs of aging, for instance!

Anti Aging Wrinkle Cream How They Work
Peoples' preoccupation with anti-aging skin care products that claim to make you look younger is not surprising; reducing the visible signs of aging is the goal for many people as they grow older, and why shouldn't it be? This group of beauty products generally works by enabling the synthesis of collagen, the main protein of connective tissue in animals and the most abundant in our body; collagen is so abundant, it makes up about a quarter of the total protein content of structural protein...
