Using Top Skin Products to Put Your Best Face Forward

By staff Writer

Beginning at age around age 40 our need for skincare products begins to undergo a change because of the natural hormonal balances that occur in our bodies. From color to texture, everything about it gradually alters, whether we like it or not (who are we kidding, nobody likes it!).  

For this reason, the best skincare products that we've spent years tracking down, suddenly don't seem to be producing the results that we want anymore.  This is because they haven't been designed to help manage the moisture loss, sensitivity, and changes in pigmentation that weren't an issue before, but that are now starting to cause problems.  Though there are chemical peels, and both laser and plastic surgeries as treatment options, very few of us want a solution that is that harsh (or expensive) in our lives.  

The key to continuing to look radiant and beautiful, no matter what our age, is to find the top skin products for our specific needs.  Then, once we have them, we need to stick to a healthy regimen that uses them every day.

Aside from gentle cleansing in the morning and night, there are additional skincare products that should also be added to the mix:

•Sunscreen – you know that you should have been using it for years, but even if you haven't started yet, now's the time.  This is one of the best skincare products in your beauty arsenal, so it's up to you to find one you love and apply it every day before heading out into the sun.  As great as the sun can feel, exposure to its rays is one of the fastest roads to aging. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects you from both UVA and UVB rays to stop the photo damage that will lead to premature aging with wrinkles, sagging, and age spots – not to mention skin cancer.

•Moisturizer – the best skincare products are those that are designed specifically for anti-aging results. These formulations will help you to combat fine lines and dark spots caused by the lower natural moisture levels in the skin and pigmentation changes. Look for products with antioxidants such as Vitamins A, C, and E.

•Pigment cream – even if you've already worked moisturizer and sunscreen into your regular routines, pigment cream is one of the top skin products that you will likely need to add for the first time.  Age spots can start to appear because of photo damage, hormonal changes, and other issues connected with maturing.  The ingredients typically include various types of gentle acids for either all-over treatment, or spot specific lightening.

By using a combination of the best skincare products you can find, we can correct the problems you're struggling with, while preventing future problems from happening before they start.
