Anti-aging treatment cream is one of the popular solutions many women use to counter damaging effects of aging process to skin. Some women experience good results with it, however, others do not get the same. If you are one of the women who have tried a number of anti-aging treatment products but nothing has ever given you the desired results, you probably lack the right knowledge about this product. Anti-aging treatment creams can actually work on skin but if you don’t know how to maximize it, it is of no use.
Therefore, in order for you to get the results that you want you must first understand how your skin works, what are its components, and how aging signs develop as you get older. There are two essential structural proteins which your body uses to make your skin in good shape and in perfect tone. These are called elastin and collagen.
This is the more well known and talked about protein between the two. Its function is to maintain the tightness, the firmness and toned condition of your skin. Collagen fibers support most tissues of the skin and these are responsible for the elasticity and strength of the skin. These are also responsible for strengthening blood vessels as well as for tissue development. Therefore, when your collagen levels start to degrade, it makes the skin wrinkling which eventually accompanies aging of a person.
Although elastin does not get talked about that often, it is as important protein as collagen is. The same with the latter, your elastin plays a role in your body to make skin elastic and flexible. It is because of this elastin protein why your skin returns to its normal position and shape when you stretch or contract it. It also helps return the skin to original position after it has been pinched and poked.
Both proteins are high in contents when you are in your early years, as a child and young adult, however, as you start to age in the late 20’s they start to diminish. As you get older, production of both elastin and collagen starts to slow down so that the amount present in the skin lessens. Because of the deficiency, it becomes easier for your skin to wrinkle, sag, and develop fine lines and other aging signs.
As mentioned above, treatment creams and other products will not be effective if you don’t maximize their use. Since the two proteins are the key components which make your skin firmed and toned, it is important to look for products that contain elements which will encourage the re-growth of the elastin and collagen. Do not look for creams that claim they contain these proteins. Even though you know how vital these proteins are to make your skin achieve the elasticity and youthful glow, always remember that collagens and elastins are too large a protein to be actually absorbed through the skin’s pores.
