Cosmetic company profits are soaring as the demand for anti aging makeup and skin care products continues to increase. Turning back the hands of time is big business. Ten years ago, it would have been almost impossible to find skincare products specifically designed for men’s skin. Today, both men and women are searching for products to fight the signs of aging.
While women are quite comfortable wearing makeup, men are just beginning to realize the benefits of specially formulated cosmetics for mature skin. Men are becoming more and more conscious about the importance of skincare and want to conceal fine lines and wrinkles too!
The anti aging makeup for men consists of a moisturizer with a tint or skin brightener. It is designed to camouflage wrinkles without looking like a man is wearing foundation. It is a subtle product that many men have become comfortable wearing.
The real issue and concern many men and women have is whether anti aging makeup actually deters the signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation or discoloration. These cosmetics will not turn back the clock or make the signs of aging disappear – however, it can effectively conceal them! In addition, it can help minimize or slow down the development of wrinkles.

What to Look For in Anti Aging Makeup
Anti aging makeup is specially formulated to deliver vitamins and collagen building peptides to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Humectants are infused in makeup such as foundation, to retain and draw in moisture. The added moisture will not erase wrinkles; however, it will plump the wrinkles making them less noticeable. The peptides help to maintain collagen and encourage the production of collagen. The collagen provides the skin with elasticity which decreases or minimizes the development of wrinkles. While using this type of product does not stop the aging process, it can slow down the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
The brighteners can minimize the shadow effect thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The wrinkles still exist, but they are camouflaged and less visible. In addition, the skin brighteners diminish the appearance of uneven skin-tone and provide a youthful glow.

While no cosmetic can turn back the clock, it can help you look younger.
Retinol is a common ingredient in makeup formulated for mature complexions. Retinol helps to remove the top layer of old skin cells to expose younger cells just under the surface. This helps to reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol can improve your skin-tone and texture. Your complexion will not be the same as it was in your 20s, but it will look significantly healthier.

What Do We Think About Anti Aging Makeup?
While there is a tremendous amount of hype surrounding makeup for mature skin, realistically it can improve the appearance of your complexion. It will not make wrinkles disappear altogether, but anti aging makeup will help keep your skin moisturized, diminish age spots and provide a healthy glow – and that’s not just for the ladies!
