Worried About Wrinkles?

How did you feel when you noticed your first wrinkle? Did you suddenly feel "old"? Were you horrified? Those laugh lines have made you stop laughing?

Most wrinkles are associated with changes in our skin as it ages. It's a natural process that we all must go through.
Environmental factors help in increasing the aging process, as does too much sun exposure, smoking and genetics.

Many people can not accept the normal aging process our skin goes through and search for ways to obtain younger looking skin. There are hundreds of products and services on the market that will offer you help in looking younger. Some services that people consider are collagen injections, face lifts and other expensive procedures offered by dermatologists and plastic surgeons.

Less expensive ways to help in obtaining younger looking skin are anti-aging creams and lotions. These usually don't pose a risk to your health.

Replexion is a product that many say can help you get back that younger, dewy look of our youthful years. It also helps in the repair of our skin from damage caused by age, pollution and free radicals, ultraviolet exposure and loss of collagen.

Key ingredients are: areacetyl hexapeptide (also known as argireline), palmitoyl pentapeptide (aka matryxil),
palmitoyl tetrapeptide,hyaluronic acid (a powerful moisturizer), retinyl palmitate (a form of Vitamin A),
botanicals including shea butter, aloe, algae extract, cornflower extract, cocoa butter, and mango butter.

The peptides listed in the ingredients are molecules that penetrate into the deep layers of the dermis. This is where they stimulate collagen renewal, which in turn, plumps up the skin and smooths away wrinkles. The moisturizer or hyaluronic acid that this product contains is considered powerful because it provides healing moisture that is lacking in aging skin.

Before you think about spending thousands on services that may compromise your health, consider the benefits you can obtain by using an anti-aging cream such as replexion. Looking younger shouldn't put you in the poor house or put your health at risk.
