Skin Care?

Can natural anti-aging skin care products turn back or slow the progress of wrinkles, thinning or sagging skin. I don't know about you but I would like to find out.

The next best solution to aging skin is advertised to us all the time in magazines or television ads and it's hard to resist some of the claims. After all who does not want less lines and wrinkles or want their skin to have some of that same glow it had when we were younger.

Anti aging products are some of the most popular skin care products being made. While natural ingredients seem to be used very frequently this is an area where some chemical intervention is common and these products along with all skin care products may contain harmful or even toxic ingredients. Unfortunately, some of the big name companies who promote these products haven't signed the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and some still use animal testing for their ingredients and products.

A check through the Skin Deep Database from the EWG (this is a database of ingredients and products that rates their safety) showed that many of the most popular anti aging skin care products received a high hazard rating. See nontoxic skin care for more info about what ingredients to watch out for in our skin care products.

A great solution is safe, natural anti-aging skin care products and we are lucky to have so many choices available to us. Lets' see if we can sort through some of our best options and find a skin care routine that works. One that keeps our skin looking it's best.

Caring For Your Skin

As time passes our skin care needs change but our basic skin care routine doesn't. We need to treat our skin well no matter what our age and we start that by knowing our skin type, dry, normal, oily plus sensitive and mature and following a skin care routine based on this knowledge.

The Basics

  • Daily
  • Cleanse
  • Tone
  • Moisturize
  • Protect
  • Weekly or more often
  • Exfoliate
  • Facials and Masks

It could be this simple. Some of the best dermatologists out there tell us it should be. We are trying so hard to fight the aging process that we are trying just about any new product which claims to work and it's scary the extremes some of us choose. A simple easy to use and effective routine can be found by using natural anti-aging products.

This is possibly one of the most important things you can do for aging skin. The older we get our skin becomes slower at creating new cells which give our skin a younger smoother look. When you exfoliate your skin you help remove the dead skin cells on the surface and encourage skin to more rapidly create new cells for a more youthful appearance.

Natural options for face exfoliants come from lotions and scrubs to brushes, cloths or other devises designed for removing dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion is an example of this. Save some money and make you own. With just a few simple ingredients that most of us have in our own kitchens you can make simple, fresh and effective homemade exfoliants. Make exfoliation a big part of your skin care routine and for best results make sure to do this at least once a week.

Natural Anti-Aging Creams and Lotions

Once all those dead skin cells are removed your skin is ready for some moisture to keep new cells plumped up. Creams and lotions made from natural ingredients can be an important part of any natural anti-aging skin care routine to help diminish fine lines and wrinkles and even to firm and tighten the skin.

An amazing array of ingredients like green tea, pomegranate, fruit enzymes, essential oils, sea weed, vitamins, minerals and more are being used in natural anti-aging skin care products.

Many women are seeing results with products that read more like a yummy recipe that uses fresh natural and even organic ingredients. Chemical ingredients that are currently being used for aging skin aren't the only answer or even the best answer to good anti aging skin care. Know your anti aging ingredients and buy from companies that don't do animal testing.

Facial Exercises

Exercises for facial muscles have been around for a long time. If you practice yoga you may already be familiar with some of the facial poses but there are also other exercise programs developed specifically to tighten sagging skin or smooth wrinkles.

There seems to be a big difference of opinion on their effectiveness with many claiming excellent safe results and others saying it doesn't really work and can even help exaggerate wrinkles.

With no clear answers as to what is best, before you try facial exercises read all you can and then decide. This could be an inexpensive effective form of natural anti-aging skin care that improves the look of our skin but we need to understand the process.


This is a fascinating technique of applying gentle pressure to specific points on the face and holding the pressure for a matter of seconds. This technique, practiced for thousands of years in China, tones and tightens the skin. Who knows it may even be an inexpensive alternative to cosmetic surgery.

It is a safe simple process that can be completed in just minutes a day but it is important to have a good understanding of how it works. It's not complicated but the right pressure points must be chosen for effectiveness. Many sources from books to the web provide info to make this easily understandable.

No matter what form of natural anti-aging skin care when you are informed and choose with care you you will be assured that you are choosing something natural and I mean natural as it should be not just a vague word on label but truly natural ingredients to help our skin look it's best at whatever age.
