With the media shoved in our face everywhere that we go, our visual appearance has become a huge part in our everyday lives. Whether it is tanning, hair coloring, plastic surgery, or “Anti-aging cream”, we can see the dominance of image in our society. Everyone wants to look young, healthy, and like Brad Pitt, Right?
As a result of this pressure on image, Anti-aging creams are a heavily marketed and advertised product, promising to deliver healthier and younger looking skin, while reducing wrinkles. Most of the time these creams are targeted at women, but we are now beginning to see products that are more targeted to men as well. This shift is because society is starting to more readily accept men being conscious about their looks and image.
There are several different forms of anti-wrinkle treatment. The biggest advantage to using a ceram over another method such as plastic surgery and botox injections is the huge difference in cost. Many critics will tell you that the marketing and advertising that goes into these products is actually damaging, and is playing with the fears in women and men. Really there isn’t huge proof that any of these products work well, if at all, which is another thing you will hear critics rave about.
Do wrinkles in our skin matter, and do these products really work? I would recommended asking yourself that first question, and spending some time to answer the question for yourself as every individual is different.
