Anti-aging is a word that is synonymous with reducing wrinkles and helping to fight sagging and lines – but what exactly makes a product “anti-aging”?
Not all skincare is made the same so we decided to break down the facts and explain what the difference is between normal skincare products and the ones made to focus on anti-aging.
Not all products are created equally and the difference starts in the research and science that goes into a product. When you purchase a regular moisturizer, it’s likely packed with ingredients that only help to moisturize skin. While hydrated skin will show fewer signs of aging, it does absolutely nothing to help reverse the aging on your face that already exists like pesky lines and deep wrinkles or jowls.
Anti-aging skincare is a lot more scientific and years of research go into the ingredients and formulations to make sure they can actually provide the results you’re looking for. Instead of claims, anti-aging products are formulated based on science and testing which can make a huge difference in the kind of results you see. Not all anti-aging products are created equally but with South Beach Skin Lab, you can trust the research and testing that Dr. Ryan Shelton has put into every single product in our line.
Most people are happy to just slather on a moisturizer and hope for the best, but when it comes to anti-aging skincare you need to be more realistic about what it takes to see results. Anti-aging isn’t a one-stop-shop and for the best results possible, you need to incorporate a routine and application process that works with the DNA of your skin.
To see the best results out of your anti-aging products, you need an arsenal of products that work in synergy together and compliment the effects of each other. You always want to apply your skincare to a freshly cleansed face, and then thinner products like serums first. Follow with your heavier anti-aging cream and these will be the building blocks you need to help reverse and plump wrinkles and bring your skin back to a younger and healthier version.
Have you ever looked at the ingredients list of your drugstore products? Most of them are filled with harmful ingredients like parabens and sulfates that may condition the skin but don’t do much else. In a sense, its a waste of your hard-earned money because you’re spending it on cheap ingredients that have no scientific backing.
When you want anti-aging results, you need to turn to anti-aging ingredients like amino acids, fatty acids, and peptides to help revive your skin and change the way it functions. Some of the best ingredients for anti-aging are cosmeceutical ingredients. While they may be slightly more expensive, in the long run, it is worth it because you will see results much faster than with ingredients not made for anti-aging. Of all the ingredients out there that claim to give results, only cosmeceutical ingredients are proven to work through countless trials and exceptional research.
