How Can I Be Proactive About My Aging Issues?

Sort by

If you are reading this, you are probably trying to figure out what anti-aging products should I be using and where do I begin.

Hopefully this section will help you gain a better understanding of anti-aging products and how to use them, particularly since there is such a mountain of disinformation and a litany of false claims out there on the web and on television. There are thousands of products that claim to be the most effective and that can turn back the clock without surgery. Unfortunately, most anti-aging products contain poor formulas that were developed over a decade ago, and do little more than hydrate the skin. For those looking for answers, you have come to the right spot.

The big question you are probably looking for is can over-the-counter creams really help smooth out and repair wrinkles? The short answer is yes. The good news is that there are products that do work and can turn back the clock provided that they contain the right ingredients and right formulas. Anti-wrinkle creams and other anti-aging products, such as serums, have come very far in the last few years. But while products can help in reversing visible signs of aging, experts caution that there’s no miracle product out there to automatically turn back the clock. Still, it is important to understand that wrinkles are progressive. The longer you wait, the worse things get. And the more difficult it becomes to reverse facial wrinkles. However, if you do use a product and/or regimen consistently, you will begin to see improved results within a few weeks but even better results over a longer period of time.

Below, we have provided you a quick overview of the basics of aging and it is not meant to be exhaustive. We have offered simple answers and explanations that more directly impact the type of questions you are asking about skin problems you are looking to improve.

The Aging Process and its Effects on Collagen

Let's first take a look at the natural aging process. There are many factors that influence aging which include the environment, genetics and diet. There just isn’t one item but there is no question genetics is one of the biggest factors. As we age, genetics plays a part in how fast we begin to lose elastin, or rather, as many people refer to it interchangeably as collagen. Elastin, which is a natural protein in the skin, begins to disintegrate as we age causing sagging skin, brown spots, lines and wrinkles on the hands, face and neck. Losing proteins is one of the biggest reasons why we begin to see our skin age, which in turn, stymies the growth of collagen.

But if we could help stimulate the growth of collagen, wouldn’t this help improve how our skin looks? Yes, of course it would. So how do we do this? We must come up with a way to build back up our proteins and a way to do this is through amino acids which are the essential building blocks of protein. Amino acids have an influence on the function of organs, glands, tendons and arteries. They are essential for healing wounds and repairing tissue, especially in the muscles, bones, skin and hair as well as for the removal of all kinds of waste deposits produced in connection with the metabolism.

In developing a suite of anti-aging products and to tackle the signs of aging, J. Paul believed the best way to combat skin problems was to utilize amino acids in its products. It is through the use of amino acids, correct ingredients and a patented technology that J. Paul has developed the best over-the-counter anti-aging products found on the market today.
