Anti Aging Face Cream: How to Choose One That’s Right For You?

With so many different anti aging face creams available today, it is difficult to pick the right product. One has to carefully read labels and do the proper research (online or in the store) to make an informed decision as to what anti aging face cream to buy. For example, is the cream made for a specific skin type? And what function does the anti aging face cream perform? Does it have a preventative use or can it be used to make the skin look younger)?

Most anti aging face creams contain similar ingredients such as moisturizers, antioxidants, herbal extracts and vitamins. Look for ingredients that serve a specific purpose. For example antioxidants to protect the skin against free-radical damage. Or ingredients that improve the elasticity of the skin.

Additional Ingredients to Look For

Many anti aging face creams often also contain UV filters to protect the face against harmful UV rays. While it is important to protect the skin from (over-) exposure to the sun, Reverta’s anti-wrinkle cream does not contain UV filters. That is because we believe that these chemical sunscreens (with daily use) may be harmful to people’s overall health. This allows people to use their own personal favorite sunscreen whenever it’s needed.

It is generally recommended to avoid certain ingredients. These include alcohol, parabens, artificial fragrances and petrolatum. These ingredients are often used in skincare products and could damage your skin in the long run.

While an anti aging face cream does not result in an instant face lift, great results can be achieved when high quality anti aging face creams are used.

An anti aging face cream with natural ingredients usually does not cause any side effects. In addition, it contains ingredients that work on multiple levels to improve skin tone and to reduce wrinkles. As a result, such face creams have a long term effect on the way you look and how you feel about yourself.

In addition to using a topical anti aging face cream, a few lifestyle changes (“habits”) can further improve the look and feel of your skin:

  1. Reduce Sun Exposure
  2. Reduce stress (at work or at home)
  3. Stop Unhealthy eating habits
  4. Stop Smoking
  5. Exercise more
