In this day and age, everybody agrees that choosing a suitable anti aging skin care product can become a very difficult task. There are hundreds of products available on the market, all claiming that they offer the perfect solution for all your skin care worries.

The skin care industry is quite a lucrative one. Literally hundreds of millions of dollars are spent every single year, just in United States alone. The problem with most of all these anti aging skin care products, however, is that, more often than not, they don’t live up to the expectations of the person who bought them.

Most of the time they prove to be worthless, or, even worse, they cause all different types of damage to the skin, ranging from minor to more severe. However, there is always the bright side: If you do your research and you exercise caution, then you can find a quality anti skin care product which is suitable for your skin type. Below, I will give you a few tips which will help you in your selection:

1. First of all, stay away from any products which contain any type of fragrance. You may be aware that fragrances contain toxins. When you apply the skin care cream or lotion on your skin, these toxins can potentially enter your bloodstream through your skin pores, causing you harm.
2. Second, and pay close attention to this, avoid any anti aging skin care products which list collagen as one of their ingredients.
Now, in order for you to understand what I am talking about, I need to give you a little background:

Most of you are probably aware that collagen is a protein which is underneath our skin and helps it to stay firm and youthful looking. As we age, collagen is gradually depleted and as a result, our skin begins to sag and form wrinkles. Because of all the hype surrounding collagen, people are often misled to believe that anti aging skin care products which list this protein as one of their ingredients, will do wonders for their skin.

Nothing could be further from the truth. What science tells is that molecules of collagen are so big, that they cannot penetrate the pores of your skin. Therefore, they stay on the surface, doing nothing! So, in essence, you are giving away your hard earned precious money to buy something that is totally useless!

3. This fact leads to my third and last tip. Instead of focusing your attention to find an anti aging skin care product containing collagen, try instead to look for products with ingredients which, when applied topically, have been scientifically proven to stimulate your body to generate more collagen itself.

Examples of these ingredients are Phytessence Wakame and Cynergy TK™. In short, the former is extracted from natural sea kelp, found in the waters near Japan, while the latter is a natural substance (this is a quite a new breakthrough discovery by the way), which is found in the wool of sheep in New Zealand.

As already said, it has been proven through scientific experimentation on human volunteers, that these substances, when penetrated into the human skin after topical application, actually stimulate the production of collagen, making your skin more supple and youthful looking.
