Anti Ageing Creams

There are many people who, beset by fears of the natural process of ageing, smother themselves in anti ageing creams.

These products claim to perform miracles, by taking ten years or more off one’s appearance.

I am somewhat sceptical about these claims, all that is really happening is that the cream is causing the skin to temporarily “puff up”; thereby hiding the wrinkles, lines and bags associated with ageing.

There is another point, the “puffing up” the skin causes it to stretch; thereby making it more baggy, loose and wrinkled when the effect of the cream wears off.

In other words, anti ageing creams in fact make you look older.
