Below are 4 tips for choosing an anti-aging skin care product:

Buy a Product Formulated For Your Skin Type
Your sunscreen, moisturizer, and other anti-aging skin care products will work best if they are formulated for your skin type. For example, if your skin tends to be oily, select a moisturizer made for oily skin. If you have sensitive skin, you want to see the words “sensitive skin” on the label. This is important because no one product works for everyone. Source: AAD

Read Product Labels Closely
The label must list ingredients from the highest concentration to the lowest, so if the antiaging element you are looking for, be it niacinamide or vitamin C, is near the bottom, there’s not enough in the product to do anything. Source: ShareCare

Look Beyond the Claims of the Product
While advertising is a huge influence in the skin care market, it is important to be wise in dealing with the claims of any one particular product. If the product claims to reduce fine lines and eliminate wrinkles are these claims supported by reviews of real people who have used the product and seen positive results? In addition, a product which contains a good moisturizer is crucial to relax skin tension and lock the moisture in. Source: wikiHow

Ask a Dermatologic Surgeon
Don’t buy products without doing research: When purchasing products read the labels to find the active ingredients. If there are ingredients that are unfamiliar, look them up to find out how they work. For example, products claiming to contain Botox could be deceptive as Botox is only effective when injected directly into the underlying muscle.
Don’t forget to use products that contain sunscreen: Protecting skin from the harsh sun is important. Choosing beauty moisturizers and creams that contain at least SPF 30 is crucial and will help to maintain youthful looking skin.
Don’t hesitate to ask a dermatologic surgeon: If any doubts remain about the most appropriate skin care product, or an over-the-counter product is not getting the job done, consult a dermatologic surgeon for help. Source: ASDS
