To look younger than your chronological age has been the quest of many for centuries. When explorers first reached the shores of America, they were not only looking for gold, but also for the fountain of youth. Today, researchers and scientists believe they have come as close as ever to finding products which help both men and women to look as young as they can.

The best method of maintaining a youthful appearance is to provide the body with the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that are required at the cellular level. By achieving good overall health, drinking lots of water and getting good rest, many women are able to maintain a more youthful appearance than did their parents. But for those of us who are looking for something more there are several options from which to choose. (1)

Before making your choice filter advertising claims through several questions. Manufacturers may offer claims that appear to be outrageous on the surface. Although we would all like to get rid of deep wrinkles, lines or take 20 years off our appearance, reality is that once the damage has been done it’s harder to reverse than it is to keep it from happening in the first place. Prevention really is the best medicine.

Before spending your money recognize that outrageous claims are questionable at best and often cannot produce the promised results. Look for a product line that comes as a three-part system. It is not possible to provide all the necessary anti-aging components to treat different areas of the face in just one cream. Product lines that develop creams for the face, eye cream to gently treat the sensitive area around the eyes and an anti-aging serum are better able to produce results that you are likely to be happy with.

Any anti-aging products you choose should use high quality ingredients. There is nothing worse for your skin than to slather on a blend of harsh chemicals you believe will help you to look younger.

Also, do not be sucked in by claims of media celebrities who advertise their own product lines or give testimonials for the product lines of others. That little statement at the bottom of every testimonial, “these results are unusual, you may experience something different” is a required statement by the Federal Trade Commission. Recognize that most models do spend the majority of their day taking care of their best asset – their face.

Some products used by media celebrities are high quality and do produce results, but before purchasing you should send them through the same filtering system you would any other product you are considering. Be sure that the products you are purchasing come with a money back guarantee of at least 60 days. It takes at least 60 days in order to see significant results from an anti-aging skin care products. While you may see some initial results that are encouraging take care to evaluate the results after a full two months to ensure that you are totally satisfied with the product.

Using the right products most women can take approximately 5 to 10 years off their face without using plastic surgery. These anti-aging products, including micro-dermabrasion, chemical peels and anti-oxidants, will help both men and women gain an added advantage in the workplace by tapping into a more youthful appearance.

Beware of free trial offers. Most of these offers are not truly free but actually are a lead into a recurring product purchase. In other words, when you enter in your credit card information to pay for shipping and handling you are also agreeing to purchase the product every 30 to 60 days and have your credit card charged as well. If you do take advantage of these offers, which isn’t a bad thing, put the date by which you must cancel on your calendar so that if you are not satisfied with the product you can cancel before anything is shipped to your home or your credit card is charged.

By following these few simple rules about anti-aging products, exercise programs and supplements you should be able to determine the products which are best suited for your particular skin type and current needs. Remember that the vast means of achieving a more youthful appearance is to eat raw fruits and vegetables which contain living enzymes that help to feed the skin and give you a more youthful appearance.
