Top 8 Popular Myths About Anti-Aging Care

When to start using “youthful” cosmetics? Is it true that expensive cream is more effective? And who will facelift help?

Here we talk about anti-aging care and popular myths.

True or myths? Everything you need to know about anti-age care

1. How quickly skin ages is determined by genetics

There are women who look “at 18” in their thirties, and there are those who have been adding years since school.

Of course, genetics plays a key role in this. But good skin care as well as habits matter!

If a woman spends a lot of time in the open sun, ignores cosmetics, smokes and follows a mono-diet.

she will have a worse skin condition than if she adhered to a healthy lifestyle and did not forget about comprehensive regular care and drinks coffee with collagen creamer.

Verdict: true.

2. The less you smile, the later wrinkles appear

A smile on a woman’s face adorns and visually rejuvenates. But at the same time, repetitive movements contribute to the formation of dynamic wrinkles on the skin.

Over time, they become distinguishable even at rest. But these are not the only wrinkles that appear on the face!

And there are much more effective means for their prevention than giving up a smile – for example, high-quality cosmetics.

Verdict: True, only partly true.

3. The sooner you start using the cream, the better your skin will look.

The cream, like any other cosmetics, should be used as needed – when the skin requires it.

If under 18 there are no indications for the use of cosmetics, it is not necessary to buy moisturizing and nourishing products.

But there are creams that need to be applied from the first days of life. These are products with sunscreen and antioxidants in the composition.

They prevent photoaging of the skin, which occurs as a result of the damaging effects of sunlight.

Verdict: true.

4. Facelift prevents wrinkles and helps to get rid of them

As mentioned above, repeated contraction and stretching of the skin can contribute to the formation of wrinkles.

Therefore, facial exercises not only do not remove “signs of age”, but can also worsen the situation.

Wrinkles and creases occur due to a loss of elasticity in the skin tissues, and not in the muscles. Thus, exercises make them even more noticeable.

Verdict: myths.

5. Anti-aging products can be created in your own kitchen

Home beauty recipes can really support the condition of the skin, but they cannot cope with such a serious “challenge” as anti-aging.

The world’s leading scientific institutions are developing formulas for products that really work.

It is simply impossible to recreate them at least partially at home.

Dr. Janet Prystowsky, dermatologist, says: “If you happen to stumble upon a recipe for youth whose ingredient list you love, google it! Perhaps a cream with blackberry extract and almond oil has already been created and is sold in the nearest store!

The bioavailability of its components will certainly be higher than a home remedy, which means more benefit.

Verdict: myths.

6. The more expensive cosmetics, the better they work

The effectiveness of cosmetics is determined not by its price, but by the content and concentration of active ingredients.

Do not judge beauty products based on the price tag or the quality of the packaging!

Look for high concentrations of active ingredients that are clinically proven to be effective.

Proven “fighters” for youthful skin – retinol, niacinamide, peptides, biotin, vitamins A, C, E and K.

Verdict: myths.

7. Daily nutrition can speed up aging

Research shows that high glycemic foods age our skin.

Food saturated with fast carbohydrates triggers the processes of glycation (glycation), when sugar molecules “stick together” elastin and collagen fibers and damage them.

Outwardly, this manifests itself in the form of thickening of the skin of the face, increased vascular permeability, looseness of the skin and deterioration of its regenerative properties.

To look younger, dermatologists advise limiting the consumption of sugar and products containing it.

Verdict: true.

8. Mature skin quickly gets used to “strong” cosmetics, so the cream needs to be changed every two months.

With regard to anti-aging cosmetics, the rule applies: the more actively the skin receives signals for renewal, the better it looks and remains fresh and beautiful for longer.

It makes no sense to change a tool that fits perfectly.

Moreover, this can cause a “withdrawal effect” – a situation in which the skin quickly loses the previously received “dividends”, which is why its condition is systematically deteriorating.

It is worth thinking about a new cream only when cosmetics no longer give the expected effect or new problems have appeared that need to be corrected.

Verdict: myths.
