As you age, your face becomes more vulnerable to the aging process-  expression lines start to appear on the forehead and around the mouth, crows feet creep in from all the years of squinting. Wrinkles are a by-product of the aging process. What happens is the inner layer, called the dermis, begins to thin.

With age, skin cells divide more slowly and the protein which causes skin to stretch- elastin  and the major structural proteins in the skin which support the outer layer-collagen fibers, loosen and unravel.  This causes a depression on the surface of the skin, or wrinkle.

The skin loses its’ youthfulness over time. The skins’ ability to retain moisture becomes impaired and it becomes less elastic, slower healing and the oil-secreting glands become less efficient. 

The development of wrinkles is essentially a culmination of the environmental elements and time-or, in other words, dry skin due to sun damage and a lack of collagen.  The great news is, there are a plethora of skin care products you can use to pamper your skin.

To keep looking young, you want to develop an anti-aging skin care regiment. This may include a number of products for your face and body. Remember, using harsh products can actually be more damaging to your skin than not using any products at all.

Maintaining a level of moisture in your body is important in the fight against aging. Having the proper tools to aide you in this fight is a necessary step.  As every year passes, the skin toughens and loosens.

Anti-aging skin care is best when started early. Maintaining youthful skin is easier than regaining youthful skin.  Products you may want to include in your daily regiment are toners, moisturisers, sunscreens, and cleansers. You may also want to add body lotions, foot creams, and hand creams.

However, if you already have some signs of aging, it is okay. There are things you can do to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and age spots. Using the proper skin care products can help you reverse the signs of age.

Products with antioxidants or collagen can help you rejuvenate your skin. Though results may not be immediate, they will appear in time. One anti aging cream may be effective for one individual and not for another. 

Healthy skin is a matter of being consistent and starting a good skincare routine, early.  If you take good care of your skin, it will take good care of you.  After all, the skin is the largest organ, covering and protecting everything inside your body.

No matter how you think of it, your skin is very important. It  helps to keep our bodies at just the right temperature and allows us to have the sense of touch.
