When it comes to buying a cosmetic product, it is necessary to distinguish between those that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and others that promise to stretch and firm the skin. A common mistake is to focus only on fighting wrinkles and forgetting about the importance of toning the skin.
If we are looking for a smooth complexion, we need anti-age products (creams or serums). These cover a wide range of skin conditions related to age, such as dark spots or lack of tone, in addition to smoothing out wrinkles.
The difference is an ingredient called DMAE, used in many anti-age products that tighten the skin and the muscles underneath. Another important ingredient is ubiquinone, a powerful antioxidant that stimulates the skin to produce more collagen (after 25 years of age the skin produces less collagen), as well as more elastin and skin cells.
In any case, there are products that stand out in the market for their quality, but we must always keep in mind that all skins are different and do not react equally to every product, no matter how expensive it might be. ■
