Should Men Use Anti-Aging Creams | Do Anti Aging Creams Stop Wrinkles | Why Men Should Use
Hi. I’m Antonio Centeno. I’m the founder
of Real Men Real Style.
Today, gentlemen I’m going to be answering
the question, should men use anti-aging cream?
And, before I get into this, guys I would
love to hear from you, what’s your gut reaction?
What do you think? Let me know in the comments
of the video. And, yeah, give me some feedback
and let me hear it because I’m going to
give you five factors five things that you
should be thinking about as you’re making
this decision, three natural ways to actually
improve your skin quality. And then, I’m
going to get into the details, what you should
be looking for if you’re going to go out
there and purchase an anti-aging cream.
At the end of this, I’m also going to refer
you over to my article. Why? We have a list
and I will actually recommend a few anti-aging
creams that I have tried that I have been
using for over the last year, so that you
guys can make a smart purchasing decision.
So, really quick here are the five things
that I think effect a man’s decision and
the answer is, you know, it depends on your
situation. There isn’t a right or wrong
answer here because first off, it depends
on your profession. And, I think this is important
because if you’re in sales, if you are the
face literally of your company, of your profession,
of your business, it’s important that you
have that you put on a great face. I mean
think about it, actors, that’s a great profession
in which how they look matters a lot, whether
they’re going to get the part, whether or
not they have sustaining power in the industry.
If you are in sales, you better believe that
if you have a pleasant appearance, if you’re
– I talk about style, but how your face
looks is going to have an effect on how much
you sell. You guys that are out there and
you’re in your 50’s, you’re in your
60’s, you’re in your 40’s, you know
that, hey, you know, people treat me a little
bit different now that I’ve aged a bit.
Sometimes, it is an advantage, other times
if it starts to become something like you
really have bad skin, that you need to pay
And that’s factor number two, exposure and
the condition of your skin. Some of you guys
you have blue-collar jobs you’re out there
and you are working in the sun. My grandfather,
he dug ditches for his entire life. My father
did a lot of – he, you know, he was out
there picking strawberries when he was a kid
and growing up. They were exposed a lot to
the sun, it’s something I’ve had jobs
like that, but nowadays I’m, you know, spend
in the office, so I really don’t have that,
but many of you guys out there you have really
rough skin because you’ve exposed it to
a lot of sun and it simply is in rougher condition.
So, in that case, actually using an anti-aging
cream may actually help your skin.
Point number three, genetics. Some of us are
just simply going to age faster, so that’s
something to pay attention to.
Number four is your personal situation. So,
I’m happily married, four kids, and I’m
really, you know, I have to say I dress for
myself, I dress for my family, but many of
you guys out there, you’re maybe in your
40’s, your 50’s, you’re maybe recently
divorced, or you’re still single, and you’re
going out there and you’re just simply trying
to put your best foot forward. I can tell
you an anti-aging cream is probably something
you’re going to want to look at.
And, point number five is simply what do you
want. There are some men out there that just
simply want to look good and they want to
look good into their 60’s, their 70’s,
into their 80’s. I think it was, you know,
it kind of reminds me – have you ever listen
to David Allan Coe? He is – I used to listen
a lot to him when I was younger. And, he talked
about, I think in one of his – basically
he said when he die he wanted his funeral
to be a closed casket because he wanted to
look dead. Some of you guys out there, you
simply you want to look great until the day
that you die and if that is you, then probably
an anti-aging cream is something in your future.
So, guys based off those five factors, you
want to make a decision that is right for
you. Now, there are three things that you
can do to instantly – well, not instantly,
but overtime improve. One, quit smoking. Number
two, drink more water. And number three, protect
yourself from the sun. That’s not going
to require any anti-aging cream. If you do
those three things, you are going to help
your skin last longer.
However, all of that being said, anti-aging
creams do serve a purpose, so if you find
that you are and you want this, one of the
things that happens to our skin is collagen,
I believe that – I believe I said that right.
And, basically there are twenty eight types
of this structural protein. And so, collagen
basically it helps with skin elasticity, in
our teens in our twenties, we’ve got plenty
of it. But, something happens in our 30’s
and our 40’s, our bodies start to produce
less of it especially in the skin.
Now, vitamin C has been shown to actually
increase the production of collagen, however
if you intake it, it’s a very, very small
amount that actually gets to the skin cells.
So, it’s been shown in numerous studies
that if you actually apply Vitamin C and various
other things I’m going to talk about here
in a second, you can see basically more of
it of tone in the skin. Why this matters?
Okay. As you get older and older, basically
your skin starts to lose tone and that’s
why we start to see wrinkles around the body.
And, there is some truth in how you smile
and some of the expressions if you use your
facial expressions a lot, you’re going to
get a bit more wrinkles. But to an effect,
you can start to combat these things.
Now, you’re going to hear two words; lotions
and you’re going to hear creams. I like
creams a bit more than lotions. Lotions are
going to be a little bit more liquidly, creams
are usually going to be more solid they’re
going to have a higher make up of oils and
some of the other things. Creams are also
usually going to be more expensive. The easiest
way, lotions are going to flow if you turn
them up, creams you could hold them upside
down and they’re not going fall out of the
In the article, I go into a lot more detail
and I’m going to link up that article down
below in the comments, but let me give you
a quick overview. So, if you’re looking
at the back of a container for an anti-aging
cream, you want to make sure you know what
to look at, okay, doesn’t have a Vitamin
C. That right there is probably the number
one ingredient you’re going to see across
the board. The next is going to be hydroxy
acids. Hydroxy acids are kind of expoliators,
so when you apply this on the skin, it’s
actually removing that top layer and it’s
going to allow for penetration of other items
that you’re going to be, you know, that
are going to be in the ingredients, so retinol,
Vitamin A, these has been shown as well.
Basically, to be able to tone up the skin
especially on the face and in hands, always
see Coenzyme Q10. Again, I go into a lot more
detail over in the article, but this is also
been shown to have an effect. We’ve got
grape seed extracts and tea extracts. Finally,
B3 vitamins you’re to see as well. Those
are oftentimes used because they’re going
to help retain fluid. Like I said, stopping
smoking, drinking more water 8 glasses a day,
and protecting yourself from the sun are natural
ways to improve your skin or to actually keep
it in the best light.
But, not all of us will be able to do that,
some of us in our 30’s, 40’s, 50’s,
60’s, 70’s are wanting to have better
skin. So, hopefully you’re able to use this
information. Go over to the article, I’m
going to actually recommend a number of companies
that you can check out. I’m going to try
to have some discounts over there for you,
so if you decide to use them they will actually,
you know, be a good deal for you and best
of luck. And, I would love to hear from you
guys in the comments down below what you think
of anti-aging creams for men.
Take care. See you in the next video.
