Our skin starts to age as early as our twenties so by the age of 50 most women have researched or experimented with a number of anti aging products. Maintaining great skin will surely give a more youthful appearance which can be further enhanced with a healthy lifestyle, the right hairstyle, anti aging creams, serums and makeup plus an appropriate wardrobe.
In recent years more anti aging devices for home use have come available. Treatments that were only available in clinics and spas are now available in your own home at a fraction of the cost.
It’s interesting and fitting to see how many men are becoming more open to taking better care of their skin and overall appearance too. As more males have treatments like manicures, facials, and waxing a growing number of them are now more aware of what women have been doing for years in the name of beauty and trying to maintain a more youthful look.
By the time they are 50 many individuals are starting a new phase in life and want to do it in style. They want to look younger and feel good about themselves.

For a lot of people the way to great skin is good nutrition, adequate sleep, fresh air and exercise but there are others that need a bit more help than that to get the results that they want, so here are some anti aging products that can help you achieve great skin.
Both Red and blue light therapy can be a great asset to your skin regime. There are a number of anti aging products available in the light therapy range.
Blue light therapy is typically known to get rid of acne and skin break outs. The blue light kills the bacteria on the skin that causes acne. Acne can start at any age, and it’s common for menopausal women to experience acne due to hormonal imbalance. Many teens are susceptible to acne for the same reason, hormone imbalance. Acne can break out on the face or other areas of the body at various times throughout life. Hormone imbalance can cause all sorts of problems for us including hair loss as well as skin problems
Red light therapy is recommended for aging skin. The red light helps rejuvenate the skin and helps to rebuild lost collagen. It also helps to reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, tones and balances skin color as well as being successful in treating rosacea and sun damaged skin.
Light therapy is not a quick fix. Results can vary both in individuals as well as time frame. You have to be committed to the sessions which are anywhere from 10 -20 minutes usually 3-4 times a week.
With the ability to have your own light therapy device you have the choice of when and where you have your light therapy sessions. There are a number of blue or red light therapy devices available on the market. There are also color combination light therapy devices available which a lot of people with problem skin prefer.
Although light therapy does not show immediate results many blue and red light therapy users report seeing a marked improvement in their skin even within a few days to a week. A number of those using these anti aging products say that their skin is glowing and looks healthier in a matter of days. However, most people find it takes longer than this to get results.
I was only recently introduced to the Clarisonic skin cleansing device by a close friend of mine who is 60 years old. She is using the Clarisonic device in conjunction with red light therapy. When I saw her she had been using the red light therapy device she recently purchased for about 2 months and the Clarisonic face cleansing for 1 month. I can confirm that she’s experiencing amazing results with this combination treatment. After not seeing my friend for a while I was really impressed by the difference in her skin.
