If you’re using an anti-aging or anti-wrinkle cream as part of your skin care regimen, then we applaud you for taking the necessary steps to ensure that you’ll have youthful looking skin for a long time to come. However, there is actually quite a lot of misinformation out there regarding what an anti-wrinkle cream should and should do and what it should and shouldn’t contain. Here are three myths about anti-aging skin care.
Myth 1: One Anti-Wrinkle Cream is enough!
It’s actually not true that you can buy one anti-aging or anti-wrinkle cream and have it provide all of your needs! After all, the skin on your face isn’t all the same, is it? Nor are your needs during the course of a twenty-four hour period the same. We recommend that you use three basic anti-aging and anti-wrinkle products:
- A daytime anti wrinkle moisturizer or cream that is lightweight enough to not feel too heavy during the day,
- A night time anti wrinkle moisturizer, cream or serum that provides more intense results, and
- A separate anti wrinkle eye cream for the more sensitive and often more wrinkle-impacted area around your eyes.
Myth 2: Anti Wrinkle Creams Will Solve All Signs of Aging
While it’s true that a good, quality wrinkle cream will remedy many of the signs of aging in the form of fine lines and wrinkles that come with age, there are other signs of aging that you will need to address in other ways. The most common of these are age or sun spots, which are darker discolorations that come with age and which can be treated with a lightening or fading agent. The second most common is an overall loss of firmness in your skin, which is the result of hormonal aging. Murad Resurgence® anti aging skin care products are designed specifically to address this loss of firmness.
Myth 3: Only Old Women Use Anti Wrinkle Creams
This just isn’t true! It’s never too early to start addressing the signs of aging on your skin. Whether your first tiny lines and winkles are already visible or whether you’re using an anti wrinkle cream preventatively, you don’t need to be a senior individual to begin ensuring that you have youthful, beautiful skin for as long as possible!
