Treatments for premature aging

Treatments for premature aging – So many choices, so little time.

With so many products out there, how do you choose one?

There are so many choices…

  • Over the counter products
  • Prescription products
  • Do it yourself (DIY) products
  • Skin peels
  • Surgery
  • Combination of any of these
  • And on and on

In my opinion surgery should be a last resort but I know it is not for many women out there. 

I have searched high and low for many more hours than I wish to count for products that work.  I have read so many reviews both good and bad about high priced products that make so many promises but deliver little results and then there are some that actually work. 

There is one caveat though – your mileage may vary.  What works for one person will not work for another.  One can cause smooth beautiful skin in one person and cause acne in another.  Factors affecting your results are: your race, ethnicity, and genetics.  These help determine your skin type.

What I’ve found is that you need to take a combined approach to fighting off the signs of aging.  Some of it is unavoidable as we age but we can minimize the damage as we go along waiting for the latest and greatest products to come along. 

The main components of this recommended skin care regimen are going to be eating foods that help produce collagen, Vitamin C, sunscreen, DIY products, Obagi products, Retin A, Hydroquinone, and reducing some of the causes of aging in the first place – too much unprotected sun exposure, smoking and bad eating habits.

Now you may have heard about some of these products and you may have tried some of them already.  What I want to share with you is results that others have had with their skin care regimens and how you may incorporate some of these ideas in your own skin care regimen if you’re not getting the results you want.
