The Advantages and Disadvantages of Facial Peels

There aren’t many people who look forward to the concept of growing older. This is because no matter how old we get, deep inside, we still feel the same.

That is why we are aghast upon seeing ourselves in the mirror, with saggy skin and wrinkles, when we don’t feel any differently inside from the way we felt when we had baby faces and dewy skin.

This is the reason why there is a boom in the anti aging skin care industry. Young and young at heart alike, there is a mad dash for products that promise the fountain of youth.

Facial peels, or skin peels, are one of the options available. These are generally quite effective, unfortunately they do have disadvantages, and I’d like to briefly list the advantages versus the disadvantages to taking the facial peel route to anti aging skin care.

Advantages of using Facial Peels:

1. The effects of these peels are discernible almost immediately after

2. These effects can also be quite significant

3. Facial peels  work to lessen fine lines, make the skin smoother, and fade age spots and other skin discoloration

Disadvantages of using Facial Peels:

1. Procedures like these are usually quite costly, and have to be administered at a spa, dermatologist or salon

2. Just the word “peel” can give us a clue as to what exactly will be done to your skin. And yes, it does tend to feel as painful as it sounds.

3. If there is pain or discomfort, then there will also likely be a recovery period or downtime

4. The effects of these peels, while tremendous, also tend to be temporary, necessitating regular maintenance.

I think that it is quite obvious that the disadvantages to facial peels actually outnumber its advantages. This is why, personally, I prefer to use skin creams to achieve the anti-aging result I aspire to.

There are quite a number of effective skin creams, the most effective of these would be the kind that contain clinically proven substances that can increase the body’s natural collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are vital proteins that are responsible for smooth, supple, healthy skin.

There is one disadvantage to using skin creams, though. Even the really effective anti aging skin creams require a certain amount of patience in application before significant results are achieved. I think that’s a small price to pay for a cost-effective, natural, effective, and permanent solution to achieving younger looking skin.

Advantages and Disadvantages Of Some Anti Aging Skin Creams

We can’t stop our aging process. But that doesn’t mean that we have to live with the unwanted effects of aging to our body. We still can maintain the natural youth and beauty of our skin. There are some common things to do that.

One is to nourish your body with adequate vitamins and minerals obtained from healthy foods like fruits and vegetables. Vitamin A, K, E and C are good antioxidants. They protect your skin from harmful free radicals that can damage your skin cells. Damaged skin cells will then cause dry and unhealthy skin, which triggers the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

It is also important to equip yourself with useful, natural and safe anti aging skin creams. These creams don’t halt the aging process but instead stops or lessens the unwanted signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.

But not all anti aging skin creams are helpful; there are some advantages and disadvantages that you will encounter in each cream.

Synthetic creams use bovine collagen and elastin to remove wrinkles. However, this is not effective. The molecules of these proteins are too big for the skin to absorb. Yes, it is effective when it is injected, but these will never work topically.

Natural anti aging skin lotions and creams are composed of natural ingredients. This is considered to be a reliable and an effective method. Plant and fruit extracts synthesize the natural production of collagen and elastin in the body. For instance, Phytessence wakame, Japanese sea kelp, is very useful in bringing back the diminished production of collagen and elastin in the body.

Cynergy TK™, avocado oil, and active manuka honey will stimulate your body to produce more collagen and elastin. These are the two proteins in the skin that give it elasticity, so one can have smooth and wrinkle free skin. Use anti aging skin creams with these substances and you can have you much younger looking skin.
