  • Choosing A Topical Cream Or Lotion

    Making your face look younger

    There is little doubt that topical creams and lotions will probably never be a short-term replacement for plastic surgery. However, in the long run, the topical cream or lotion will definitely be an excellent replacement, since plastic surgery results begin to deteriorate within 24 hours of the surgery. As time progresses, the fat will begin to build up again, and the wrinkles will start to reform. On the other hand, if you continue to apply the cream/lotion faithfully, the results will continue and be maintained.

    With thousands of creams and lotions on the market today promising maximum results and “best alternative to liposuction,” is it possible to choose one for your body, especially the sensitive skin of your face? Experts agree that there are a few things to watch for when you choose a topical cream or lotion to minimize wrinkles or other appearances of aging.

    • Check the ingredients. This is especially important if you have any known allergies. Some creams contain harmful ingredients that can cause reactions, such as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Common side effects of an allergic reaction include rash, swelling, redness, and irritation, but more serious side effects such as anaphylactic shock can happen in rare cases.
    • Read the directions. We all lead very busy lives, and we don’t want to have to take a break every 4-6 hours to apply new lotion, especially women who wear makeup daily. Look for overnight or once/twice daily creams and/or lotions.
    • Research the brand name. If you have any doubts as to the veracity of a brand name’s claims, check them out. Many websites are devoted to reviewing products, and you can normally read a plethora of comments on any given topical cream. In addition, look for clinical trials and their results. These are also very helpful.
    • Ask a healthcare professional. Whether you choose to speak to a doctor, pharmacist, dermatologist, or another health-care specialist, they can normally recommend very helpful products. Overall, many would rather recommend a cream or lotion than perform plastic surgery on any given patient.

    Above anything else, never use something that is not over the counter without a valid prescription. Your best friend may have a prescription wrinkle treatment cream that works for her skin, but could cause problems or counteract another medication for you. Always talk to your doctor before using something that is not prescribed to you.
