Anti-Aging Creams: What Really Works?

Once you have narrowed down which ingredients may be best for you, look for a face cream that also contains sunscreen, to help prevent further aging. Sun exposure is the major cause of premature skin aging. Sifting Through Dubious Product Claims When considering an anti-aging cream purchase, proceed with caution. Keep these tips in mind as you read product labels: While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates medications and prescription cosmetic products, the regulation of nonprescription face creams and other cosmetic products is less stringent. Manufacturers of cosmetics are not required to prove the safety or effectiveness of their products before they go public. If an anti-aging cream label says that it can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, or age spots, these claims do not have to be substantiated by clinical evidence. Although you cant always trust the claims made on anti-aging cream labels, you can trust the ingredients list. <br>visit

You may also experience more breakouts because of this. <br>visit

Homemade Toners for Dry Skin Care

This can increase the growth of bacteria, risking further breakouts in all skin types.'

He recommends SkinMedica Purifying Toner (19.50,, Obagi Nu-Derm Toner (32, and SkinCeuticals Equalizing Toner (25.18, 'These can also break up the glue between epidermal skin cells, allowing the dead skin cells to be exfoliated off, which brings fresh skin cells to the surface, leading to a brighter complexion.'

They act as a mild astringent, but do not dry out the epidermis due to their 66% concentration of fatty acids. Never use elderflower leaves, which are quite toxic, in any skincare preparation (they make an excellent insecticide, however).

"This client has already ordered three tons of slime," Guedon said.

China Considers End To Mandatory Animal Testing On Cosmetics

The proposal covers products made in China, but not imported products Campaign group said change came quicker than expected But does not expect wholesale end to animal testing of cosmetics in China Hong Kong (CNN) -- Cosmetic companies and animal rights groups have welcomed a proposal by China to allow sales of some cosmetics without requiring them to be tested on animals. Animal testing would no longer be mandatory for "non-specialized cosmetics", including shampoo, soaps and certain skin products manufactured in China from June next year, according to a document posted on the website of the China Food and Drug Administration earlier this month. Beauty companies have long faced an ugly dilemma in China. Local laws and regulations require animal testing for cosmetic products sold in the country, which has made the lucrative market a tricky area for brands that want to sell in China without alienating consumers in other places that frown upon animal testing. State's new problem: Stoned dogs Was Westminster dog poisoned? "Non-specialized cosmetics produced in China could avoid toxicological testing after going through risk and safety checks," the China Food and Drug Administration said. Imported cosmetics are not covered in the proposal. But the document indicated that China would gradually ease regulations on animal testing, which would allow more international firms opposed to animal testing to enter China's 134 billion yuan ($22 billion) cosmetics market. <br>visit
