Top 5 Anti-Aging Creams for 2017

They say youth is wasted on the young. 
 Which is just one of many reasons why billions of dollars are spent every year on cosmetic creams and procedures. According to Reuters, It’s estimated that the global anti-aging market will reach nearly 250 billion dollars in 2018.  These statistics clearly prove that millions of people around the world are searching for the secret to looking younger, but the question remains, how many of these products actually work?

The anti-aging market, especially when it comes to creams, is plagued with myths and false information. Many companies over-hype their products, promising that overnight you will look ten years younger. But, are these claims always myths? Do some products really work in such a profound way while others don’t?

It’s clear that choosing an anti-aging cream can be extremely confusing. That’s why I want to first go over  things to avoid in your anti-aging cream and things you should look for in your anti-aging cream.  .

First lets look at some myths about anti-aging creams and a few things to avoid.

Three Anti-Aging Cream Myths

X Retinol Is All You Need
While many people think retinol is the only ingredient that you need, retinol only works on ‘one level.’ Many higher-end creams that deliver the best results use a combination of ingredients such as stem cells, skin-supporting vitamins, and collagen, just to name a few.  The best products have a variety of synergistic ingredients to give you the best results.

X Creams Can’t Help Wrinkles
Although many people say that wrinkle creams do not work, it’s often because they use low-quality products for insufficient amounts of time.  To see significant results with high-quality creams, you need to use it consistently and regularly.

X ‘Expensive Creams’ Aren’t Worth It
Most people have not tried more expensive creams, and often times cheap creams lack enough ingredients to make an impact. More expensive creams have proprietary formulas that took years of research, investment and testing to create. These more expensive creams, generally speaking, work better.

Three Anti-Aging Cream Truths

Multi-Ingredient Products Work Best
Your skin is a complicated organism. In fact, it’s the biggest organ that you have. It requires a large amount of ‘nutrition’ to stay healthy and prevent aging. Creams that come with top ingredients such as retinol, in combination with vitamins, collagen, and cellular supporting nutrients will generally give better results.

 Find Creams With ‘Evidence’
All the best anti-aging cream manufacturers will have clinical studies of either their cream or the ingredients that they use in their creams. Also look for companies that provide a variety of before and after photos to show the ‘proof behind the pudding’ of their product.

Try Multiple Products
Although the best creams usually work for most people because they contain the best formulas, not all creams work for everyone. We all have unique skin-types and if one cream doesn’t work for you, then you may have to try out several different ones to find one that works for you
