Yeah right. I’m not going to pay over $100 for some anti aging skin care product before I know if it really works or not. Anti aging skin care products can cost anywhere from $15 to hundreds of dollars depending where you shop. Anything from a department store or specialty skin care brand is going to be pricey (think upwards of $75 per item). Usually, the drugstore products are cheaper, ranging from $15 to about $40. Still, that’s not cheap. Before buying something that expensive, I at least need to know it’s not going to irritate my skin. And you should do the same.
Many anti aging products contain ingredients like retinol which can cause irritation if used in too high a dose. When starting on an anti aging product, you need to work your way up. Everyone’s skin is different, so trying an anti aging skin care sample first can help you determine if a product is too harsh on your skin, or causes any kind of adverse reaction. Almost always, you should start with an every other day approach regardless of the formula. But, even then, some products may still be too aggravating. If you have particularly sensitive skin, you definitely want to be on the lookout for a free skin care sample of any anti aging product you are considering.
When choosing which anti aging product to buy, first look for quality ingredients. Then get a sample and give the product a try to see how it feels on your skin type. Here are some of the most effective ingredients when it comes to anti aging capabilities.
Vitamin A (Retinol, Tretinoin or Retinyl Palmitate)
Hydroxy Acids (Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Beta Hydroxy Acids)
