    Any moisturizer, regardless of ingredients, will improve the skin's appearance for a few hours. To really turn back the clock requires something more advanced, such as injecting the popular ingredients in anti-aging creams beneath the skin. Topically, the only anti-aging ingredient proven to have some effect is retinol, according to a 2008 University of Michigan study. People who use retinol report a significant change in the appearance of brown spots and wrinkles. Also effective, this study says, are carbon dioxide laser treatments and injections of hyaluronic acid, which plumps skin tissue under wrinkles. Treatments aside, two other proven ways to slow the signs of aging are avoiding smoking and wearing sunscreen. Smoking and sun damage advance the skin's loss of collagen, a protein that keeps the skin firm.

    The definition of anti-aging is to delay, stop or retard the aging process. Our bodies are made of cells, and aging occurs when there is cell death. As an infant, child and young adult, our body’s cells are strong, resilient and can make new cells. As the years advance, our body’s ability to generate new cells diminishes, cell death occurs, and the aging process ensues.

    A lot of women cake on too much make-up in an effort to mask wrinkles and imperfections. That’s a mistake. Look for a luminous, moist foundation with sunscreen protection that will give you a smoother, glowing look. Also, try out different eye-shadows to see which ones stay put rather than slithering into creases and folds. And take advantage of the new lines of long-lasting lipsticks that don’t smear or run into fine lines around the mouth. In addition, pay attention to your coloring. If you’ve decided to be let your hair go silver, change your make-up palette accordingly. Why not get a consultation from a make-up artist, either at a department store, a salon, or a spa? There’s nothing like professional advice to steer you toward just the right make-up textures and shades to make the most of your looks.

    Alpha hydroxyl acids, such as lactic or glycolic acid, are added to give products exfoliating properties. Products containing alpha hydroxy acids are typically known as "antiaging" because they exfoliate the skin, revealing younger skin cells.

    The pharmacological effects of materials such as seaweed and oatmeal, often used in face masks or peels, are unknown. Papain, an enzyme found in papaya, is helpful in sloughing off dead skin cells, but can be expensive.
