As men and women get older, it is always a concern that your looks will start to wear off and disappear. No matter how much makeup or cream you might use, sometimes aging cannot be prevented. However, many women and men are excited about the new products available on the market that can change all of this.
High tech skin care cream is all the rage in the anti-aging cream and skin care market today. This trend has seen more sophisticated formulations that capitalize on advances in gene therapy and new anti-aging actives like epidermal growth factors and newer peptides. Examples of some ingredients in these high tech creams include fullerenes, sirtuins, animal-derived pacenta and collagen, Human Oligopeptide-1 (EGF) and stem cells. EGF Cream is one product by DHC that contains the polypeptide EGF (epidermal growth factor) along with vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
It fights against the visible signs of aging and promotes cell turnover to increase skin elasticity. Esthe Pro Labo has launched Outer Ageing Care Program Thoroughbred Placenta in Japan. This skin care range contains fullerene, AG-11, hyaluronic acid, alpha-arbutin, and 18 herbs. The key ingredient is horse-derived placenta, which is claimed to have anti-aging and moisturizing properties.

Actress Kim Cattrall has publicly declared that she is not frightened of ageing and that she will never undergo cosmetic procedures in an attempt to look younger. The 54-year-old, whose most recent film is called Meet Monica Velour, says she is inspired by older celebrities who retain their glamor.
She said that she looks at people like Judi Dench, who is in her 70s, as examples of how to embrace aging in a positive way. She said she sympathizes with women who feel pushed into undergoing plastic surgery, though, because in Hollywood image is everything. She believes this is why so many women in their 50's or even younger are pushed to Botox and plastic surgery, because they are trying to stay competitive in their careers. She doesn't judge women who choose plastic surgery in a negative light because she feels it is a personal choice.
