No one appreciates those telling reminders of age, particularly those that appear in the mirror. Staring back at us, a face we used to remember.
To correct signs of ageing, women and men of all ages have over 10 million cosmetic procedures performed per year. These consumers just want to look younger, and are willing to pay for it!
Wrinkles are just one of several signs of ageing that products attempt to reverse or reduce. Hundreds and more top wrinkle-reducing products and procedures are on the market. The question that we all need to be answered is; “Which ones remove more cash from your wallet than wrinkles from your skin?”
The recent events brought out new trends such as an increased interest in Botox due to “Zoom Face”. As consumers stare at themselves during zoom meetings, many have looked into elective cosmetic procedures as they aren't happy with what they see. The anti-ageing ingredients market is even estimated to reach the billions by 2025.
Anti-ageing products help fight signs of ageing, such as wrinkles and sun-damaged skin, but to what extent can these products really work? There are limitations to what anti-ageing skincare products claim they can really do. And prevention is always better than correction.
When we take a closer look at the marvels of our skin and how it serves as a defensive barrier against foreign invaders, a sensory organ that helps alert us to information about our environment, a means to regulate your body’s temperature, and a manufacturing plant that creates bone-building vitamin D, it is with utmost urgency that we need to spend more effort on prevention than money on correction!
