Is anti aging cream for men worth it?

Anti aging cream for men

While we can't promise miracles, a men's anti aging cream is certainly worth using. Learn the top 3 reasons why below.

1. You lose the ability to create collagen as you age.

You've probably heard the word collagen before. After all, it's important; it's the structural protein of the skin. In other words, it's the main building block of the skin. The less collagen your skin can produce, the more folds (wrinkles) your skin will have. Anti aging ingredients such as aloe vera help the skin boost collagen production by feeding it Vitamins A and C, both known to stimulate the growth of collagen.

Editor's Note: Boost your collagen production with the best face serum for men. Use it nightly under your anti-aging cream for the best results. Instead of hydrating your outer skin layer, anti-aging night serum for men penetrates the deepest layers of the skin. This repairs your skin from the inside out, leading to dramatic results.

2. Hydrated skin ages better.

Oily skin is not a curse, but a gift. Men with oily skin, in general, age better than their dry counterparts. The best anti aging cream for men will contain powerful natural hydrators such as hyaluloric acid. This gel-like water holding molecule retains over 1,000 times its weight in water. Wrinkles are often caused by sun exposure and natural dehydration of the skin as we age. By flooding our cells with hydration from hyaluronic acid, we can reduce lines and prevent future wrinkles.

3. Fight skin pigmentation issues.

As we age, our skin eventually develops pigmentation issues usually called "age spots". These age spots are caused by natural aging processes and also the sun. Ultraviolet light from the sun accelerates the production of melanin, often causing concentrated areas of it on the skin, aka: age spots. The best anti aging products for men will contain ingredients such as MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), a nutrient found in most well known super foods (spinach, kale) which reduces age spots and skin pigmentation issues.
