3 Costly Mistakes People Make When Choosing an Anti Aging Cream

Most people have it so very wrong when they choose an anti aging cream and instead of researching and finding the highest quality product, they opt for the most well advertised instead. Big mistake! If you want to discover the secret ingredients in most brand name skin care products that you absolutely have to avoid when choosing your anti-aging skin cream, keep reading.

1. Parabens

Parabens such as ethyl, methyl paraben, butyl and propyl are commonly used preservatives that brand name moisturizers, creams and lotions use to keep their products on the shelf longer, meaning more money in their pockets. However, clinical studies have shown that they mess with your body's endocrine system and might cause cancer in later life. More commonly, they cause skin rashes and allergic reactions. Do you want red, itchy, and swollen looking skin? Me neither.

2. Alcohols

A number of alcohols such as ethyl alcohol, benzyl alcohol, SD alcohol, methanol and isopropyl alcohol are all found in many anti aging cream ingredient lists. What alcohol does is dry out your skin and makes you look older. It strips away your skin's natural acid mantle and makes you more susceptible to viruses, bacteria and mold. All very bad things you do not want anywhere near your skin, right?

3. Acrylamide

Acrylamide is a chemical compound found in many skin care products which is known to be carcinogenic and can cause skin rashes, irritation and swelling. It has also been linked with cancer and tumors! This is a very, very dangerous ingredient and should be avoided at all costs when choosing an anti aging cream.

There are many other ingredients which people still mistake as being a good choice for an anti aging cream product. My suggestion is to do your research and ensure you go for completely natural, proven ingredients as a long term solution for youthful, healthy skin.
