If you’re looking for an anti aging skin care guide for a new you in 2012, you’ll be pleased with the advice offered in this article. I’ll review 3 possible ways to rejuvenate your skin.
Before we start, however, it’s important to make one thing clear: There is nothing wrong with rejuvenating your aging skin. It’s not a sign of vanity, but rather an indication of positive self-esteem. With that cleared out of the way, let’s proceed.
There are, in effect, three main ways to get younger looking skin. Let’s review each of them in detail.
1. Buy A Popular Product
While this may seem like an obvious solution, when looking at it deeper, you will soon discover that it does not work very well.
Unfortunately, due to the chemicals found in popular skin care products, even the more expensive ones, it can appear to be a futile task to find something that will truly rejuvenate aging skin. After spending years trying one skin cream after another, many people either give up entirely or settle for something that gives marginal results.
People buy products, especially in the beauty industry, based on million dollar marketing campaigns like television commercials, radio advertising, full page magazine ads showing super models, and splashy department store displays. This is not a good way to make a sound decision.
2. Cosmetic Skin Care Treatments
Due to the failure of many popular skin products to deliver any noticeable results, those seeking beautiful skin in 2012 may turn to more drastic measures like laser treatment, dermabrasion, and chemical peels.
This is my own personal opinion, but I consider the cosmetic surgery approach somewhat harsh, often painful. It also takes time to recover, which can be difficult if you have a busy life, especially a career. Moreover, things may go awry, too, and if the chemical cocktail is a little too concentrated for your skin, it can result in discoloration of skin pigmentation, even scarring. Ironically, instead of getting more beautiful skin, you will have acquired permanent discoloration or scarring.
This is not to say that this sort of treatment does not work. If you happen to find an excellent dermatologist and are the right candidate for one of these procedures, it may work very well. Numerous factors go into determining if you are a good candidate for cosmetic skin care treatments, like if you are a smoker or non-smoker, your type of skin complexion, and so on.
However, even if this is the right treatment for you, you should remember that it is not a permanent solution. After some time, you will have to repeat the chemical skin care treatment as the results will wear off.
3. Using A Scientifically Based Natural Skin Care Product
If you choose not to buy a popular skin product or risk cosmetic skin treatment, there is still a third choice: find a product that has only natural ingredients and that has been clinically tested to be effective.
This is the method that I prefer, but don’t expect instant results. It will take about a month or more for your skin to start noticeably changing. If your skin is very unhealthy, you may need even more time to see change.
In concluding this anti aging skin care guide, I would like to make it clear that it has taken me a long time to come to the conclusion that the third choice is the most sensible one. I discontinued using popular products when my research revealed that some of the chemicals used in them are actually toxic and harmful for your health. As for cosmetic treatments, I have never personally tried it, but I have seen my clients get mixed results with it.
