The Truth About Men's Anti-Aging Products
A few wrinkles can really add character (it works for Pitt and Clooney), but you shouldn’t be racing to deck your face out with crow’s feet, wrinkles, and lines.
The best way to prevent a leathery face is a good defense. This means protecting yourself from the sun and having a solid daily skincare routine that includes washing and moisturizing.
But as you get older, the reality is that you need a little more than a basic skincare routine. That and this is where anti-aging products come into play. But some products promise a lot of fairy tales and white lies when the fact is that nothing outside of surgery will permanently remove wrinkles and lines.
Even so, high quality products with the right ingredients minimize the appearance of fine lines and even prevent new wrinkles from appearing. Read below to educate yourself on the truth about anti-aging products. That way you'll be empowered to make smart choices about how to best care for your skin.
Men and Aging
Men usually start worrying about lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet at two different periods in their lives:
- Late 20’s – early 30’s: You’re finally starting to make it in the world. But when you look in the mirror, the years of partying and playing ball in the sun all day long are causing your face to show early signs of aging.
- Late 40’s – early 50’s: You’ve achieved personal and professional success. But you look 10 years older than you feel. And now you’ve got younger guys eyeing your spot at work. You need to stay young and energized enough to stick out the tough business world - and in your personal life.
What causes fine lines to start appearing in your late 20's and early 30's? At that stage in your life, your cells begin producing less collagen (the structural protein of the skin), causing your skin to appear thinner and looser. The less collagen your skin has, the less water it can retain. That leads to the structural folds that we call wrinkles and fine lines.
Unfortunately, there is no way to totally stop this. But you can make smart lifestyle choices that prevent early signs of aging. Here are the common mistakes you need to avoid:
- Not getting enough sleep
- Not keeping up a basic skincare routine
- Spending time in the sun without using sunscreen
There's also a skincare perk to being male. Men's skin is naturally thick with a strong underlying structure. That means the aging process comes on slowly and the years of neglect can be treated, even if you start doing it a little later than you should have.
New anti-aging products come out all the time. Frankly, most do not work as they’re advertised. Some are made with potentially dangerous synthetic chemicals by companies more interested in making a buck than what happens to your skin.
Our products were developed by leading Dermatologists because they wanted natural and organic products that would help prevent wrinkles. That's how Zone was started and it's remained a core commitment ever since.
