Let's face it, the days of walking into a store and picking out an effective facial and body treatment product are over. Due to the increasing number of anti-aging skin care products on the market, it takes more than just a quick glance at a product to find one that actually works.
Alright, when you think about it aging skin is just like any other medical condition or issue.
If you want to find a facial and body treatment product that makes your skin more youthful and healthy, find out what causes aging skin to begin with.

There are 2 major causes of aging skin:
Continual loss of collagen and elastin protein
If you don't already know, collagen is the protein that promotes firm, toned skin and elastin is the protein that keeps skin elastic and flexible. Together, they determine the structure of your skin.
As you get older, your body cannot create as much of these proteins as it used to be able to, making it much easier for wrinkles, stretch marks, sagging skin, and other aging signs to form.
This is because your body cannot create as much protein as it used to in years past, and existing protein also begins to break down after a while.
Low levels of hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is found in every one of your skin's cells. It's used along with collagen and elastin to build strong protein fibers to give skin its tensile strength.
But there's an enzyme in your body called hyaluronidase that breaks down this substance, leaving inadequate amounts to be used for protein fiber development.
